HoYoverse added the latest 4-star sword-wielding cryo character, Layla, in Genshin Impact. Layla is a cryo character who can act as a strong support character by providing a shield to her teammates. Layla was first introduced in the game during the second phase of Genshin Impact 3.2.
She just joined as a student at the Rtawahist Darshan, where she is pursuing a Theoretical Astrology concentration. Layla has accomplished admirably in the eyes of her professors and peers despite being unwell and frequently sleep-deprived. Layla always claims that her prosperity is a result of “The Stars’ Blessing” and sleepwalking.
Layla is a strong support character in the game who can greatly provide support to the team with her unique abilities. In this article, we will guide you with the best build, weapons, materials, and more on Layla.
Genshin Impact Layla: Talents
|Sword of the Radiant Path (normal)||Performs up to 3 rapid strikes.|
|Sword of the Radiant Path (charged)||Consumes a certain amount of Stamina before unleashing 2 rapid sword strikes.|
|Sword of the Radiant Path (plunge)||Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.|
|Nights of Formal Focus||Creates the Curtain of Slumber, a shield that deals AoE Cryo DMG.|
The shield’s DMG Absorption is dependent on Layla’s maximum HP and it effectively absorbs Cryo DMG by 250%.
Night Stars and Shooting Stars
Every 1.5 seconds while the Curtain of Slumber is active, 1 Night Star will be produced and linked to it. Two Night Stars will be produced whenever a character covered by this shield performs an elemental skill. In this approach, Night Stars can be generated once every 0.3s. The most Night Stars that may be gathered at once is 4.
When there are enemies nearby and the Curtain of Slumber has gathered 4 Night Stars, these Night Stars change into homing Shooting Stars that are shot off sequentially, inflicting Cryo DMG to any enemies struck.
The Night Stars will vanish if the Curtain of Slumber is destroyed or its time expires. New Night Stars cannot be created until the previous wave of Shooting Stars has been fired completely.
|Dream of the Star-Stream Shaker||Releases a Celestial Dreamsphere that continually hurls Cryo DMG-dealing Starlight Slugs against enemies inside its area of effect.|
A Starlight Slug will produce 1 Night Star for nearby Curtains of Slumber when it impacts. This method may add 1 Night Star to each Curtain of Slumber every 0.5 seconds.
|Like Nascent Light||Every time the Curtain of Slumber obtains 1 Night Star while it is in operation, the Deep Sleep effect begins to take effect.|
– Characters who are under the influence of the Curtain of Slumber get a 6% boost in shield strength.
– This effect can stack up to four times and lasts until the Curtain of Slumber is gone.
|Sweet Slumber Undisturbed||Nights of Formal Focus increases the DMG inflicted by the Shooting Stars by 1.5% of Layla’s maximum HP.|
|Shadowy Dream-Signs||10% of the time that Layla creates Character Talent Materials, she has the opportunity to get twice as much.|
