The Genshin community has been excited about Alhaitham’s arrival since he was featured in the Sumeru Archon Quests. Finally he is here, with a sword and the power of Dendro. In combat, he creates Chisel-Light Mirrors that cause his normal attacks to dish out Dendro DMG. Due to his passive, Alhaitham has the chance to create double the amount of Weapon Ascension materials. Join us as we explain whether you should pull for Alhaitham in Genshin Impact.

Is Alhaitham worth moving to Genshin Impact?

Yes, Alhaitham is worth pulling into Genshin Impact. Due to his ability to teleport short distances and deal massive AoE damage, Alhaitham is useful both in reconnaissance and in combat. His attacks feel sharp and he can easily trigger multiple Charged Attacks in a row, which is crucial for his loadout. In combat, his abilities feel like Keqing’s, though his teleportation seems to work in a more consistent fashion. With his elemental ability, Alhaitham can charge at enemies quickly, dishing out Dendro DMG in the process.

When not fighting, his elemental ability can be used to reach higher places without using up stamina. Still, this ability has a hefty 15-second cooldown, making it less useful than Kaedehara Kazuha’s elemental ability. Despite its quirks, Alhaitham’s teleportation is great for repositioning. To perform a dive attack, just hold down his elemental ability button and aim up.

Alhaitham’s Elemental Burst is simple yet powerful. During this ability, Alhaitham Dendro deals out AoE DMG, which increases exponentially when he has Chisel-Light Mirrors on the field. The range of his Elemental Burst is quite generous, and it causes Dendro projectiles to rain down from the sky after the first attack area. Overall, Alhaitham’s combat mechanics feel both new and familiar, as if HoYoverse has taken Keqing’s kit and made it even better.
