With all of us Genshin Impact fans finally packing our bags and heading off to the vibrant jungles and scorching deserts of Sumeru, there are heaps of new people to meet. One of which is the stunning, fierce warrior, Candace – a powerful lady we’re dying to meet.

Hoyoverse has recently released drip marketing for the upcoming character, Genshin Impact’s Candace, and it’s hard not to fall in love at first sight. Details have been scarce, but we’ve keeping our eyes peeled for any new information regarding Candace, and we’ll be sure to add it to this guide as soon as we can. So here’s everything we know about the gorgeous guardian of Aaru Village so far.

Who is Genshin Impact’s Candace?

Genshin Impact’s Candace is an upcoming character from the Sumeru region. She’s the Guardian of Aaru Village, and a true descendant of King Deshret. She wields a hydro vision, along with a spear and shield, offering a very unique playstyle.

What’s Genshin Impact Candace’s element and weapon?

As mentioned above, Candace is a four-star hydro polearm unit, who also makes use of the round shield attached to her arm. While we’ve not had the chance to test her out yet, we believe she’ll be a skilled sub-dps/support and will likely synergise well with other new characters joining us in Sumeru – especially with the new dendro elemental reactions.

We’ll be sure to update this guide as soon as we have more details on her skills, attacks, and weapons.
