Genshin Impact: Gaming Quick Character Guide

Gaming is a Pyro DMG dealer who uses Plunging Attacks as his primary mode of attack.

Gaming is a Pyro DMG dealer who uses Plunging Attacks as his primary mode of attack.

Gaming's Elemental Skill allows him to pounce forward using the Wushou arts, leaping high into the air after coming into contact with a target or surface. If he immediately uses a Plunging Attack, he will use the Plunging Attack: Charmed Cloudstrider instead, dealing Pyro DMG to opponent hit.

Upon using his Elemental Burst, Gaming enters Wushou Stance and summons his companion, the Suanni Man Chai. Working together with Man Chai allows the CD for Gaming's Elemental Skill to be reset repeatedly, dealing continuous AoE Pyro DMG.

This guide is based on the Community Character Builds by the Genshin Helper Team.


Skills Overview

Normal Attack: Stellar Rend

Normal Attack
Performs up to 4 consecutive strikes.

Charged Attack
Drains Stamina over time to perform continuous spinning attacks against all nearby opponents.
At the end of the sequence, performs a more powerful slash.

Plunging Attack
Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.


Elemental Skill: Bestial Ascent

Pounces forward using the Wushou arts, leaping high into the air after coming into contact with a target or surface.
After Gaming has used Bestial Ascent to rise into the air, he will use the especially powerful Plunging Attack: Charmed Cloudstrider when performing a Plunging Attack.

Plunging Attack: Charmed Cloudstrider
The DMG from Plunging Attacks caused by Bestial Ascent is converted to Pyro DMG that cannot be overridden by other elemental infusions. Upon landing, Gaming will consume a fixed amount of HP. Gaming's HP cannot be reduced below 10% by this method.
Charmed Cloudstrider DMG is considered Plunging Attack DMG.


Elemental Burst: Suanni's Gilded Dance

Gaming enters Wushou Stance, briefly applying Pyro to him, recovering a fixed amount of HP, and summons his companion, the Suanni Man Chai, to smash into his target, dealing AoE Pyro DMG.
After bashing its target, Man Chai will roll to a nearby location before moving towards Gaming. When it links up with Gaming, Man Chai will leave the field and reset the CD for Gaming's Elemental Skill, Bestial Ascent.

While Wushou Stance is active, his resistance to interruption is increased, and when Gaming lands with Charmed Cloudstrider attack or completes the forward pounce attack from Bestial Ascent with over 50% HP, he will summon Man Chai again.
Each Gaming can only have 1 Man Chai on the field simultaneously.
This effect will be canceled once Gaming leaves the field.

Ascension 4: Air of Prosperity

When Gaming has less than 50% HP, he will receive a 20% Incoming Healing Bonus. When Gaming has 50% HP or more, Plunging Attack: Charmed Cloudstrider will deal 20% more DMG.
