The Wanderer is a playable Anemo character in Genshin Impact.

The Wanderer came into existence in place of his previous incarnation after the latter expunged his previous appellations and their respective histories from Irminsul. Harboring his former self's memories after willingly regaining them, "Wanderer" is now the only title he goes by, for he has no home, kin, or destination.

During the Archon Quest As Though Morning Dew in Interlude Chapter: Act III - Inversion of Genesis, the player can change the Wanderer's name, which will then be used in some of the game's interfaces, such as Party Setup.

Talent Yuuban MeigenYuuban MeigenNormal Attack
Normal Attack
Performs up to 3 attacks using wind blades, dealing Anemo DMG.

Charged Attack
Consumes a certain amount of Stamina, gathers a build up of high wind pressure, and deals AoE Anemo DMG after a short casting time.

Plunging Attack
Calling upon the power of Anemo, the Wanderer plunges towards the ground from mid-air, damaging all opponents in his path. Deals AoE Anemo DMG upon impact with the ground.
Talent Hanega: Song of the WindHanega: Song of the WindElemental Skill
Concentrates the power of the winds to break free from the shackles of the earth, dealing AoE Anemo DMG before leaping into the air and entering the Windfavored state.

The Wanderer cannot perform Plunging Attacks in this state. When he uses Normal and Charged Attacks, they will be converted into Kuugo: Fushoudan and Kuugo: Toufukai respectively; the DMG they deal and their AoE will be increased, and their DMG will be considered Normal and Charged Attack DMG respectively. Kuugo: Toufukai will not consume Stamina.
The Wanderer will hover persistently during this time. While this state is active, the Wanderer's movements gain the following properties:
  • Persistently consumes Kuugoryoku Points to maintain this hovering state.
  • When sprinting, additional Kuugoryoku Points will be consumed for the Wanderer to accelerate mid-air. Holding sprint will cause persistent Kuugoryoku Point consumption to maintain speed. This effect will replace his default sprint.
  • Jumping expends extra Kuugoryoku Points to increase hovering height. Holding jump will cause persistent Kuugoryoku Point consumption to keep increasing hovering height.

Running out of Kuugoryoku Points will end the Windfavored state.
A second cast during the duration of Windfavored will also end it.
Talent Kyougen: Five Ceremonial PlaysKyougen: Five Ceremonial PlaysElemental Burst
Compresses the atmosphere into a singular vacuum that grinds all troubles away, dealing multiple instances of AoE Anemo DMG. If the character is in the Windfavored state due to the skill "Hanega: Song of the Wind," Windfavored state will end after casting.
Talent Jade-Claimed FlowerJade-Claimed Flower1st Ascension Passive
If Hanega: Song of the Wind comes into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro when it is unleashed, this instance of the Windfavored state will obtain buffs according to the contacted element(s):
  • Hydro: Kuugoryoku Point cap increases by 20.
  • Pyro: ATK increases by 30%.
  • Cryo: CRIT Rate increases by 20%.
  • Electro: When Normal and Charged Attacks hit an opponent, 0.8 Energy will be restored. Energy can be restored this way every 0.2s.

You can have up to 2 different kinds of these buffs simultaneously.
Talent Gales of ReverieGales of Reverie4th Ascension Passive
When the Wanderer hits opponents with Kuugo: Fushoudan or Kuugo: Toufukai in his Windfavored state, he has a 16% chance to obtain the Descent effect: The next time the Wanderer accelerates in mid-air while in this instance of the Windfavored state, this effect will be removed, this acceleration instance will not consume any Kuugoryoku Points, and he will fire off 4 wind arrows that deal 35% of his ATK as Anemo DMG each.
For each Kuugo: Fushoudan and Kuugo: Toufukai that does not produce this effect, the next attack of those types will have a 12% increased chance of producing it. The calculation of the effect production is done once every 0.1s.
Talent Strum the Swirling WindsStrum the Swirling WindsUtility Passive
Mora expended when ascending Bows and Catalysts is decreased by 50%.
