Cicins are small bat-like creatures that do not deal much damage or have much health, but they are hard to lock down and defeat. When attacking together with other enemies, they can become a real nuisance. They are attracted to mist pollen.

Types

Drops

Cicins only drop Mora.

Strategy

In the wild, Cicins are usually not much of a threat but attack in small groups, ranging from 3–5 at a time. Cicins are very nimble and can be very hard to hit with most characters, so Bows and Catalysts are typically the best bet for hitting them. They fire single energy shots at the player, and they pause for about a second to charge up and launch the attack to do so. The attack deals elemental damage of the Cicin's affinity.

Cicins can also be summoned by Fatui Cicin Mages in groups of three at a time, and they act identically to those in the wild.

Trivia

  • The Chinese word Yíng means firefly, and the word Cicin is derived from Latin "cicindela", which means "glowworm". In real life Cicindela are metallic-looking beetles.

References

  1. In Japanese, Cicin (Japanese: ) is only found as part of a compound, such as Electro Cicin (Japanese: 雷蛍 Raikei) or Cryo Cicin (Japanese: 氷蛍 Hyoukei), where it is given the kan-on reading kei. However, in general, fireflies are usually referred to using the kun reading hotaru. Hotaru is also Lumine's name in Japanese.
