With Sumeru and the dendro element hitting Genshin Impact soon, Tighnari, the vigilant forest watcher, is coming forth to teach you the ways of the land. As the lead ranger of the Dawson Rainforest, he’s pretty darn knowledgeable when it comes to his nation’s flora, and you should probably take his guidance seriously, unless you fancy accidentally munching on a poisonous mushroom.
But Genshin Impact’s Tighnari is more than a mere encyclopaedia – we believe he may be the first five-star dendro character in the game. Which, you know, is a pretty big deal considering how long we’ve been waiting for this element to arrive. So let’s take a look at this nature-loving scholar, as we dive into his release date, banner, skills, and everything we know about him so far.
Of course, Tighnari isn’t the only character arriving alongside Genshin Impact’s Sumeru, as Genshin Impact’s Collei and Genshin Impact’s Dori are also due to join the party near the beginning of update 3.0, and you can find out all about them, along with info on Genshin Impact’s next banner, right here on Pocket Tactics.
Who is Genshin Impact’s Tighnari?
Tighnari is the lead ranger of the Dawson rainforest and is responsible for both maintaining the land’s ecology and ensuring the safety of anyone who enters it. As is befitting for the nation of scholars, he is extremely knowledgeable in his area and is certainly the type of person you want around during a hefty expedition due to his vast understanding of the flora and fauna around him.
Tighnari is a five-star dendro bow wielder whose kit seems similar to that of Genshin Impact’s Ganyu, meaning he’ll likely excel as a DPS or sub-DPS.
When is Genshin Impact Tighnari’s release date?
During the Genshin Impact 3.0 livestream, Hoyoverse announced that Tighnari will be featured on a banner in the first phase of 3.0. He will run alongside Genshin Impact’s Zhongli, with Genshin Impact’s Collei as one of the four stars accompanying him.
