HoYoVerse revealed the kit for Baizhu, who will be the new five-star Dendro character in Genshin Impact. Baizhu previously appeared in the story as the owner of Bubu Pharmacy, and he is almost always seen with his talking snake Changsheng. With his Skill and Burst, Baizhu can heal and shield characters.
There is also a new character trailer for Baizhu on the various Genshin Impact YouTube channels. It shows his deep knowledge of medicinal herbs, as he can improvise new prescriptions based on his patients’ needs. You can watch the character trailer here:
When he debuts in Genshin Impact as a playable character, Baizhu will be a Dendro Catalyst user. His Skill, Universal Diagnosis, sends out a Gossamer Sprite that will damage nearby enemies three times. It will then return to the user and heal the party based on Baizhu’s Max HP. If there are no enemies for Gossamer Sprite to attack, then it will just heal the party. His Burst, Holistic Revivification, creates a shield every 2.5 seconds. It will both attack the enemy with Dendro DMG and heal the active character.
In English, Sean Durrie voices Baizhu and Xanthe Huynh voices Changsheng. Durrie previously appeared as Nick Marsters in Quantum Break. Meanwhile, Huynh’s roles include Alluka in Hunter x Hunter and Haru in Persona 5. In the Japanese dub, Koji Yusa voices Baizhu and Yui Shoji voices Changsheng. Some of Yusa’s more famous roles include Gin in Bleach and Shadow in Sonic. Shoji is the voice actress for Signora in Genshin Impact as well.
Genshin Impact is readily available on the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Baizhu will appear as a playable character, along with Kaveh, when the second half of Genshin Impact Version 3.6 begins on May 2, 2023.
