Genshin Impact recently has fans interested in Layla, what will she look like and what style of fighting will she have? Let’s learn how to play Layla with Game4V below.
The gaming community is trying to find out interesting information from HoYoverse in the near future. In previous versions the game introduced powerful new characters like the 5-star Electro-type Cyno and the 4-star Nilou, but it seems Genshin Impact has no plans to slow down its character expansion, as it already revealed two new characters that will appear in the future, Nahida and Layla. Naturally, when there are big game announcements, fans of the series will constantly hunt for undisclosed information to get an overview of that character from the developer. Some don’t care to avoid being Spoiler, the rest of gamers love to guess who the next new character will be.
Layla is a new character in the Genshin Impact universe, unlike Nahida the Dendro Archon, who previously appeared in the story play. Genshin Impact has given some vague hints, describing Layla as a character who is always in a semi-conscious, semi-conscious state, and most importantly, she is extremely unreliable. She is a Cryo-type character and a 4-star character in the game, capable of supporting squad members with a solid shield that can generate energy, according to some leaked information on Twitter and YouTube. .
The new character Layla is a student of Rtawahist Darshan carrying one of the six main schools of Sumeru Akademiya. Gamer nicknamed Ubatcha gave a short description of Layla as a studious character but suffering from insomnia. Additionally, Ubatcha noted that Layla’s abilities suggest she could be either a Support or a secondary DPS, but offered a warning that it’s still too early to be certain of her current position. She has a similar appearance to the character Kamisato Ayako, a beautiful appearance with blond hair in a blue outfit.
In more news coming from Ubatcha via Twitter, HP will be used as Layla’s primary stat in the same way as Diona, enhancing her shielding abilities. While Diona is capable of being both a shield and a healer, Layla, from leaked information, specializes only in the role of a shield. Judging from her expertise, there is some speculation that Layla might be the strongest 4-star shield in Genshin Impact.
Layla’s weapon of choice in Genshin Impact appears to be a sword, and she shows off unique animations in the leaked gameplay videos. Her elemental skill Nights of Formal Focus will also be featured, a Cryo-based shield similar to Diona’s in Genshin Impact. Layla creates a shield called Sleep Curtain when her Elemental Skill is used. Her abilities revolve around maintaining her Cryo shield for defense and firing the projectiles her elemental skills create to deal Cryo damage to enemies.
The shield skill Sleep Curtain depends on Layla’s max HP. While this skill is active, the shield will create a night star every 1.5 seconds. This ability can be increased to two Night Stars every 1.5 seconds if the characters in Genshin Impact use elemental skills while protected by the Sleep Curtain. Although defensive, the Curtain of Sleep also has the ability to attack for gamers to explore.
After the Curtain of Sleep casts four Night Stars, they transform into directional Shooting Stars to launch at enemies, potentially dealing Cryo damage on impact. The Sleep Curtain has a limited duration and after the time period ends or the shield is destroyed, the Night Stars will disappear. Other materials required for maximum use of Layla include; 18 units of Divining Scroll, 30 units of Sealed Scroll, 36 units of Forbidden Curse Scroll and 46 units of Perpetual Caliber. With a unique fighting style, Layla promises to bring a new breeze to gamers in the near future.
