Shikanoin Heizou will be joining the Genshin Impact roster as the newest four-star character when the 2.8 update goes live on July 13. He’s an Anemo catalyst user who prefers hand-to-fand combat over the floaty, magical movements that often define catalyst-wielding characters. He also happens to be a detective, which is an interesting tidbit that doesn’t necessarily affect his gameplay.
He will appear on the same banner as Kazuha during the first half of version 2.8, so that’s the banner to pull on if you’re in desperate need of an Anemo party member.
Heizou’s ascension and talent materials can be found all across Mondstadt, Liyue, and Inazuma, and we’ve laid out all of the items that you’ll need to collect.
