Whether or not you keep up with leaks, there’s been a wealth of information regarding upcoming Genshin Impact characters circulating the internet. However, one individual that we currently know very little about is the elusive Faruzan.

Genshin Impact Faruzan’s name has been floating about for a while now, with tiny crumbs of information dropped by leakers over the last few months. But, with so many fresh faces to familiarise yourself with, it’s easy to lose track of those that haven’t had their time to shine yet. So let’s take a look at everything we know about Genshin Faruzan so far, from her rarity to her weapon, and speculate about what type of role she’ll play in our ever-expanding journey across Teyvat.

To keep up with all current and upcoming characters, check out our Genshin Impact banner guide and our Genshin Impact tier list. We’ve also got a list of all the latest Genshin Impact codes so you can get saving those freemos in preparation for your new main – whether that’s Faruzan, or anyone else on the horizon.

Genshin Faruzan

What’s the best Genshin Faruzan build?

Genshin’s Faruzan is a four-star anemo bow wielder. Her skills appear to be geared towards a supportive sub-DPS role, through which she decreases enemy anemo resistance and boosts ally anemo damage. Therefore, she should hopefully be a high utility support for other anemo characters.

However, we’ll have to wait and see until we get to test her out ourselves! We’ll also add her best weapons and artifacts to this guide as soon as we get to grips with her kit.

The Hurricane Arrow also applied a Pressurized Collapse effect to the opponent or character it hits. After a short delay, this effect expires, unleashing a vortex that deals AoE anemo damage and pulls nearby objects and opponents in. If the Hurricane Arrow doesn’t hit any opponents or characters, it creases a Pressurized Collapse effect at its point of impact. The Vortex damage is considered elemental skill damage
