Kaveh is one of the most anticipated characters in the upcoming Genshin Impact update 3.6, where he will make his grand debut alongside Baizhu. Being the first-ever Dendro claymore user, Kaveh has quickly garnered attention from fans ever since his appearance in Sumeru’s Archon Quest.
In this article, we will dive deep into Kaveh’s talents, constellations, and passives. It’s worth noting that all the information we have listed below is based on leaks from the Genshin Impact 3.6 beta, so some of it may be subject to change.
Kaveh’s Elemental Skill, Artistic Ingenuity, uses Mehrak’s mapping ability for offensive purposes. When activated, it initiates a radial scan that deals AoE Dendro DMG and scans all Dendro Cores in its Area of Effect, causing them to burst immediately. Artistic Ingenuity has a cooldown of 6 seconds.
Kaveh’s Elemental Burst, Painted Dome, completely unleashes Mehrak’s energy and creates a cubic scanned space. It deals AoE Dendro DMG to all opponents within it and causes all Dendro Cores in its AoE to immediately burst. Additionally, it grants Kaveh several enhanced combat abilities for a specific duration, such as increasing Kaveh’s Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack AoE and converting his attack DMG to Dendro DMG that cannot be overridden. Moreover, all Dendro Cores created by all party members through Bloom reactions will deal additional DMG when they burst. The effects of Painted Dome will be canceled once Kaveh leaves the field. Painted Dome has an energy cost of 80 and a cooldown of 20 seconds, with a duration of 12 seconds.
Constellation 1, Sublime Salutations, increases Kaveh’s Dendro RES and Incoming Healing Bonus by 50% and 25%, respectively, within 3 seconds after using Artistic Ingenuity.
Constellation 2, Grace of Royal Roads, increases Kaveh’s Normal Attack SPD by 15% during Painted Dome.
Constellation 3, Profferings of Dur Untash, increases the level of Painted Dome by 3, with a maximum upgrade level of 15.
Constellation 4, Feast of Apadana, increases the DMG dealt by Dendro Cores created from Bloom reactions Kaveh triggers by 60% when they burst.
Constellation 5, Treasures of Bonkhanak, increases the level of Artistic Ingenuity by 3, with a maximum upgrade level of 15.
Constellation 6, Pairidaeza’s Dreams, unleashes Pairidaeza’s Light upon an opponent’s position when Kaveh’s Normal, Charged, or Plunging Attacks hit opponents during Painted Dome. It deals 61.8% of Kaveh’s ATK as AoE Dendro DMG and causes all Dendro Cores within that AoE to burst. This effect can be triggered once every 3 seconds.
An Architect’s Understanding is Kaveh’s first passive talent. It allows him to regain HP equal to 300% of his Elemental Mastery whenever he is hit by DMG dealt by a Dendro Core, including DMG from Burgeon and Hyperbloom. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5 seconds.
Meanwhile, Kaveh’s passives are passive abilities that are always active and provide him with various benefits, such as increased healing from dendro cores and a higher chance of refunding materials when crafting furnishings.
Overall, Kaveh is shaping up to be an exciting addition to Genshin Impact’s roster of characters. With his unique dendro powers, powerful abilities, and impressive constellations and passives, he is sure to become a fan favorite and a force to be reckoned with in battle.
