Even though it looks like an offline RPG with open world gameplay , actually Genshin Impact is a gacha game. You only have a 0.6% chance of being able to get a 5 star character or weapon. That means it would be better if you didn’t expect 5 star characters too much.
Speaking of characters, there is one free character that is actually very useful. You can use it to fight or solve puzzles. This character is Kaeya who is an element of Cryo. After completing the tutorial at the beginning of the game, Kaeya will join your party along with Lisa and Amber.
Even though as a free character , it doesn’t mean Kaeya is bad. If you don’t have any of the 5 star characters, Kaeya is okay to be used for fighting. In his fifth normal attack combo , Kaeya will teleport behind the opponent and attack him. This will come in handy when dealing with enemies like Hilichurls who are using shields.
This attack is also very useful against Abyss Mage. When he is about to launch an attack using his magic, Kaeya can teleport behind him. Then if you combine his attacks with Barbara, it will have the effect of Frozen. Combos like this will be very deadly for opponents.
As a male character, Kaeya is also superior in exploring maps than other female characters. This is because he is faster in climbing or swimming. The most useful of Kaeya is his Frostgnaw skill. With that he could explore large lakes and also hidden areas across the ocean.
There are several places that only Kaeya can reach, so always make sure to bring him in your party. The treasures containing rare items in those places could only be obtained by using Kaeya. Kaeya is a descendant of pirates, so an ability like that does seem like a good fit for him.
With Frostgnaw skill, you also don’t need to waste your stamina to swim. Another advantage when using this skill is that you can get fish easily. Fish that are hit by the Frostgnaw skill will immediately freeze to death. Meanwhile, if you swim, it will be quite difficult to reach the fish.
If you want to reach the island at the end of the map, you can play Co-Op with all members of Kaeya’s party. Rather than being alone, the four of them would be quicker to get to that place. Frostgnaw’s skill has a cooldown of 6 seconds. If 4 people take turns doing this skill, then they will be able to continue using it without having to wait for cooldown .
Kaeya herself is a pretty interesting character. The story quest Secret Pirate Treasure that he gives is quite interesting. Kaeya explains about her ancestors as well as the rare hidden treasures, even though that ended up not meeting our expectations. In conclusion, as a free character , Kaeya will still be very useful in your party.
Genshin Impact is available on Android, Playstation 4, and PC. This multi-platform game can be played in Co-Op mode viadifferent platforms .
