Mika Will Buff Physical Attackers in Genshin Impact

HoYoVerse released information about Mika, who will be the new four-star Cryo Polearm character in Genshin Impact. He will be a support-oriented character like how Shenhe is. (She will be one of the five-stars one of his two debut banners.) There is also a trailer focusing on who he is and how he fights.

Mika appeared previously in Genshin Impact during some of the Mondstadt-focused events. He is a Surveyor with the Knights of Favonius, which means he closely works with Eula. As such, his kit is a good match with hers. His Elemental Skill Starfrost Swirl can grant the party the Soulwind buff, which increases their Attack Speed and Physical DMG. Even though he is a Polearm user, you can hold down the Elemental Skill button to enter aiming mode.

His Elemental Burst Skyfeather Song can heal the party. Like Qiqi’s Burst, characters with an Eagleplume from the Skyfeather Song will only get heals if they hit a Normal Attack while the buff is up. Mika seems to work best as a support for Eula, who is a Physical Attack-oriented Cryo character. Them both being Cryo will grant them Cryo Resonance, which passively increases their Crit Rate.

In Japanese, Yuko Sanpei voices Mika. Some of her more well-known roles include Boruto Uzumaki from Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Nozomi Yumehara in Yes! Precure 5 GoGo!, and Selim Bradley in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Robb Moreira voices him in English. Moreira has previously appeared in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty as Zhang Bao and as Sakunosuke Oda in Bungo and Alchemist.

Genshin Impact is readily available on the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Mika will debut in Genshin Impact as a 4-star on the Ayaka and Shenhe re-run banners, which will go live on March 21, 2023.
