Genshin Impact Lyney​ Talents (Skills)

Card Force Translocation

Card Force Translocation

Normal Attack

Normal Attack
Performs up to 4 consecutive shots with a bow.

Plunging Attack
Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Charged Attack
Performs a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG.
While aiming, flames will run across the arrowhead before being fired. Different effects will occur based on the time spent charging.

  • Charge Level 1: Fires off a Pyro-infused arrow, dealing Pyro DMG.
  • Charge Level 2: Fires off a Prop Arrow that deals Pyro DMG, and upon hit, it will summon a Grin-Malkin Hat.

When firing the Prop Arrow, and when Lyney has more than 60% HP, he will consume a portion of his HP to obtain 1 Prop Surplus stack. Max 5 stacks. The effect will be removed after the character spends 30s out of combat.
The lowest Lyney can drop to through this method is 60% of his Max HP.

Grin-Malkin Hat

  • Can taunt nearby opponents and attract their attacks. Each opponent can only be taunted by the Hat once every 5s.
  • The Hat will inherit a percentage of Lyney’s Max HP.
  • If destroyed, or if its duration expires, it will fire off a Pyrotechnic Strike at 1 nearby opponent, dealing Pyro DMG.

Only 1 Hat can exist at any given time.

Arkhe: Pneuma
At certain intervals, the Prop Arrow will cause a Spiritbreath Thorn to descend upon its hit location, dealing Pneuma-aligned Pyro DMG.

Bewildering Lights

Bewildering Lights

Elemental Skill

Lyney does a flourish with his hat, unleashing a firework surprise!
When used, he will clear all current Prop Surplus stacks and deal AoE Pyro DMG to opponents in front of him. DMG will be increased according to the stacks cleared, and this will also regenerate Lyney’s HP based on his Max HP.

When a Grin-Malkin Hat created by Lyney is on the field, the fireworks will cause it to explode, dealing AoE Pyro DMG equal to that of a Pyrotechnic Strike.
The DMG dealt through the Grin-Malkin Hat in this way is considered Charged Attack DMG.

Wondrous Trick: Miracle Parade

Wondrous Trick: Miracle Parade

Elemental Burst

Unleashing his magic, Lyney turns himself into a Grin-Malkin Cat that can move around quickly. (Not to be mistaken for the Grin-Malkin Hat. They’re two different props!)

When the Grin-Malkin Cat gets close to opponents, it will send flames falling down on them, dealing at most 1 instance of Pyro DMG to each opponent. When the duration ends, he will dismiss the Grin-Malkin Cat and ignite fireworks that deal AoE Pyro DMG, summon 1 Grin-Malkin Hat, and grant himself 1 Prop Surplus stack.

Grin-Malkin Cat can be actively canceled.

Genshin Impact Lyney​ Team Combo

Lyney has only one real team option. He is extremely limited in his flexibility, but he is exceptional at the one team he does fit in.

Genshin Impact Lyney


Lyney is the main DPS in this team which benefits from Pyro resonance and the presence of 2 other Pyro characters.


Bennett is widely considered to be one of the strongest supports in the game and provides the party with an enormous Flat ATK buff equal to a percentage of Bennett’s ATK (sometimes over 100%). 


Xiangling is the best Pyro off-field DPS in the game, and it’s not close. While she needs tons of energy to function, her Burst single-handedly carries teams. 


Zhongli’s shield is practically indestructible with 100% uptime, and can even replace a healer if you’re responsible with resetting the shield. 

Genshin Impact Lyney​ Weapon

Lyney’s bow choices are straightforward: pick the most offensive Bow possible. Ideally, this will have lots of CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG as one of its stats. It should at least offer a large DMG% buff.

The First Great Magic

The First Great Magic

Base ATK 608 | CRIT DMG 14.4% (66.2%)

Parsifal the Great

DMG dealt by Charged Attacks increased by 16~32%. For every party member with the same Elemental Type as the wielder (including the wielder themselves), gain 1 Gimmick stack. For every party member with a different Elemental Type from the wielder, gain 1 Theatrics stack. When the wielder has 1/2/3 or more Gimmick stacks, ATK will be increased by 16%/32%/48%~32%/64%/96%. When the wielder has 1/2/3 or more Theatrics stacks, Movement SPD will be increased by 4%/7%/10%~12%/15%/18%.

Skyward Harp

Skyward Harp

Base ATK 674 | CRIT Rate 4.8%

Echoing Ballad

Increases CRIT DMG by 20~40%. Hits have a 60~100% chance to inflict a small AoE attack, dealing 125% Physical ATK DMG. Can only occur once every 4~2s.

Song of Stillness

Song of Stillness

Base ATK 510 | ATK 9%

Benthic Pulse

After the wielder is healed, they will deal 16~32% more DMG for 8s. This can be triggered even when the character is not on the field.



Base ATK 454 | ATK 12%

Full Draw

Increases Normal Attack DMG by 16~32% and Charged Attack DMG by 12~24%. When the equipping character’s Energy reaches 100%, this effect is increased by 100%.

Prototype Crescent

Prototype Crescent

Base ATK 510| ATK 9% (41.3%)


Charged Attack hits on weak points increase Movement SPD by 10% and ATK by 36~72% for 10s.

Genshin Impact Lyney​ Artifact Sets

There are two main optimal artifact sets for Lyney, depending on the play pattern you prefer. If you can’t get either, then it’s recommended to mix 2pc sets between Pyro DMG bonuses and ATK bonuses.

Marechaussee Hunter

Marechaussee Hunter

  •  2-piece effect: Normal and Charged Attack DMG +15%.
  • 4-piece effect: When current HP increases or decreases, CRIT Rate will be increased by 12% for 5s. Max 3 stacks.


  •  2-piece effect: Pyro RES +40%.
  • 4-piece effect: As long as an enemy has Pyro applied to them, damage dealt to them is increased by 35%.
