Genshin Impact 3.5 Leaks: Mika’s Talents and Constellations

Genshin Impact - Mika Talents, Skills, Abilities

Last Updated on: 15th February 2023, 02:36 pm

Mika is an upcoming Cryo character in Genshin Impact, who made his first in-game appearance during the Weinlesefest in Version 3.1. During this first appearance, he introduced himself as the Surveyor of the Reconnaissance Company and read Grand Master Varka’s letter aloud to the Knights.

Described by the Grand Master as “trustworthy,” Mika diligently fulfills all sorts of duties thrown at him. However, this doesn’t mean that he is someone who can’t simply say no. Rather, he holds the value of teamwork in high regard and believes that “helping everyone as much as possible benefits the entire team too!”

Mika’s drip marketing confirms that he will become available in Genshin Impact Version 3.5. But what can this young-looking Surveyor bring to the battlefield? With the help of leaks, we have listed Mika’s possible kit in this article.

Mika’s Talents

Revealed to be using a crossbow and a book (catalyst) in his idle animations, it’s quite surprising that Mika’s primary weapon of choice is actually the polearm. However, he doesn’t solely use his polearm while performing Normal Attacks. Interestingly, Mika strikes enemies both with his polearm and crossbow!

This crossbow can also be seen in his Elemental Skill which provides the party with an ATK SPD buff. As for the book (catalyst), you will see him using this during his Elemental Burst, which provides healing for the party.

For more information, you can read the details of his skills or talents below as described by Honey Impact.

ELEMENTAL BURST: Skyfeather Song

Skyfeather SongDerives the ability to spur his teammates on from the recited prayers of the knightly order, regenerating HP for all nearby party members. This healing is based on Mika’s Max HP and will grant them the Eagleplume state.

Eagleplume
– When the Normal Attacks of active characters affected by Eagleplume hit an opponent, Mika will help them regenerate HP based on his Max HP.
– Characters affected by this state can only regenerate HP in this way once per short interval of time.

“Carry hope when in dire straits, and keep vigil when all is well… For that pure white plume shall at last guide the lost wayfarers.”

PASSIVE SKILLS

DemarcationDisplays the location of nearby resources unique to Mondstadt on the mini-map.
Suppressive BarragePer the following circumstances, the Soulwind state caused by Starfrost Swirl will grant characters the Detector effect, increasing their Physical DMG by 10% when they are on the field.

– If the Flowfrost Arrow hits more than one opponent, each additional opponent hit will generate 1 Detector stack.
– When a Rimestar Shard hits an opponent, it will generate 1 Detector stack. Each Rimestar Shard can trigger the effect 1 time.

The Soulwind state can have a maximum of 3 Detector stacks, and if Starfrost Swirl is cast again during this duration, the pre-existing Soulwind state and all its Detector stacks will be cleared.
Topographical MappingWhen an active character affected by both Skyfeather Song‘s Eagleplume and Starfrost Swirl‘s Soulwind at once scores a CRIT Hit with their attacks, Soulwind will grant them 1 stack of Detector from Suppressive Barrage. During a single instance of Soulwind, 1 Detector stack can be gained in this manner.

Additionally, the maximum number of stacks that can be gained through Soulwind alone is increased by 1.

Requires Suppressive Barrage to be unlocked first.

Mika’s Constellations

If you’re thinking about enhancing the Surveyor’s potential, you might also want to check out his constellations.

LEVELNAMEEFFECT
1Factor ConfluenceThe Soulwind state of Starfrost Swirl can decrease the healing interval between instances caused by Skyfeather Song‘s Eagleplume state. This decrease percentage is equal to the ATK SPD increase provided by Soulwind.
2Companion’s IngressWhen Starfrost Swirl‘s Flowfrost Arrow first hits an opponent, or its Rimestar Flare hits opponents, 1 Detector stack from Passive Talent “Suppressive Barrage” will be generated.

You must have unlocked the Passive Talent “Suppressive Barrage” first.
3Reconnaissance ExperienceIncreases the Level of Skyfeather Song by 3.
Maximum upgrade level is 15.
4Sunfrost EncomiumWhen Mika’s own Skyfeather Song‘s Eagleplume state heals party members, this will restore 3 Energy to Mika. This form of Energy restoration can occur 5 times during the Eagleplume state created by 1 use of Skyfeather Song.
5Signal ArrowIncreases the Level of Starfrost Swirl by 3.
Maximum upgrade level is 15.
6Companion’s CounselThe maximum number of Detector stacks that Starfrost Swirl‘s Soulwind can gain is increased by 1. You need to have unlocked the Passive Talent “Suppressive Barrage” first.

Additionally, active characters affected by Soulwind will deal 60% more Physical CRIT DMG.

With his focus on providing support and healing for the party, Mika can be compared to Diona, another Cryo character, albeit with the absence of Diona’s shield.

Does this make him less of a unit? Not necessarily. Aside from healing, Mika can significantly increase your team’s Physical DMG, especially at C6, making him a potential top support unit for the likes of the 5-star Cryo character Eula and the 5-star Electro character Razor.

In this regard, he can be compared to the 4-star Cryo character Rosaria. However, while Rosaria decreases opponents’ Physical RES at C6, Mika provides 60% more Physical CRIT DMG. This may sound pretty niche, but as of writing, Mika can still fill in the healer/support role in most team compositions.

We understand that you are excited for Mika to finally become available, and we wish that all Mika wanters be Mika havers. However, it is important to remember that the details in this article are still subject to change, so take these with a grain of salt.
