Genshin Impact Layla

Genshin Impact Layla is the Fantastical Evening Star is Half-Awake, Half-Asleep, All Incredulous. She is a Rtawahist student, who specializes in Theoretical Astrology and draws star charts tirelessly in order to write her thesis.

It was claimed by the leaker that players will get to see Layla in the future 3.2 update, and indeed they were on point.

Genshin Impact Layla official release

Layla's official artwork was shared back on September 26 by the devs. And it shows her with a blue shade of hair as revealed by the model leaks and a lot of details regarding Layla's kit are likewise revealed.

A mysterious girl who calls herself "The Stars' Blessing" about Layla says, "She always says that she's overwhelmed writing her thesis and drawing star charts stresses her out, but she's more resilient than anyone and refuses to fall behind... Why do I know her so well? Hehe..."

As per the given description, "There is nothing uncommon for a student working hard in the Akademiya to experience some insomnia. Yet, in Layla's case, the severity of her sleep deprivation is indeed extremely rare. On the bright side though, if slumber is not on the to-do list tonight, why don't we observe the starry sky?"

A Rtawahist student, Layla specializes in Theoretical Astrology and draws star charts tirelessly in order to write her thesis.

Due to her teachers' high expectations, her desk is always stacked with a mountain of papers that never seems to decrease no matter how hard she tries.

Having suffered greatly under a severe lack of sleep, stars had begun swirling before her eyes if she so much as stared at her blank manuscript.

This was no way to be — and so she resolved to take a short break, all the better to face reality head-on with a clear mind afterward.

When she woke up, a myriad of stars now adorned her blank manuscript.

Layla rubbed her eyes to make sure she wasn't dreaming. Somehow, the thesis that was due tomorrow was now written clearly upon the pages before her.

Was this a "Thesis That Fell From the Sky"? Or "The Stars' Blessing"? Or could it be... "sleepwalking" — that thing spoken of in legend?

...There was no time to ponder such matters — her next class was about to start.

Genshin Impact Layla abilities

Now, let's get to the main part that has created all the excitement among the gamers for Layla.

As per the official info, Layla is a Cryo character who can provide shields for the party and deals damage even when she is off the field.

Breaking the complete Layla kit, we have the following abilities:

Genshin Impact Layla Normal Attack: Sword of the Radiant Path

  • Normal Attack - Performs up to 3 rapid strikes.
  • Charged Attack - Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash 2 rapid sword strikes.
  • Plunging Attack - Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Genshin Impact Layla Elemental Skill - Nights of Formal Focus

Genshin Layla puts forth a shield known as the Curtain of Slumber, dealing AoE Cryo DMG.

The Curtain of Slumber's DMG Absorption is based on Layla's Max HP and absorbs Cryo DMG with 250% effectiveness. Layla also becomes affected by Cryo for a short time when the Curtain of Slumber is created.

Night Stars and Shooting Stars

While the Curtain of Slumber is active, it will create 1 Night Star that will be attached to it every 1.5s. When a character protected by this shield uses an Elemental Skill, 2 Night Stars will be created. Night Stars can be created once every 0.3s in this way. A maximum of 4 Night Stars can be accumulated at any one time.

Once the Curtain of Slumber has accumulated 4 Night Stars and there are opponents nearby, these Night Stars will transform into homing Shooting Stars that will be fired off in sequence, dealing Cryo DMG to any opponents hit.

If the Curtain of Slumber's duration ends or it is destroyed, the Night Stars will disappear. If they are already being fired off as Shooting Stars, these Shooting Stars will last until this wave of shots ends.

New Night Stars cannot be created until the previous wave of Shooting Stars has been fired completely.

"She and I are like two master artisans who have never met, yet who sit at the same cushioned seat, embroidering the same dream flower."

Genshin Impact Layla Elemental Burst - Dream of the Star-Stream Shaker

Layla unleashes a Celestial Dreamsphere that constantly fires Starlight Slugs at opponents within its AoE, dealing Cryo DMG.

When a Starlight Slug hits, it will generate 1 Night Star for nearby Curtains of Slumber. Each Curtain of Slumber can gain 1 Night Star this way every 0.5s.

"Sleep now, sleep now; and may many destinies be revealed before your slumbering eyes, within your star-paved dreams."

Genshin Impact Layla's Story

The Rtawahist Darshan of the six Darshans under the Sumeru Akademiya is dedicated to the study of Illuminationism.

Each of the Six Darshans focuses on a different field of study. Illuminationism, then, is centered around astrology and astronomy, learning of the cosmos that has clutched the world in its embrace since time immemorial.

It is among the researchers of Illuminationism that we find Layla.

Though she has only recently enrolled, she has already earned a great many nicknames for herself. She has been called the Sleepwalking Eccentric, the Human Calculator, and even the Heaven-Sent Thesis by those who know her.

As the days go by, her titles only seem to grow in number.

Genshin Impact Layla's Hearsay

  • Layla about herself

"I'm not naturally talented, nor am I a fast learner... I only got into the Akademiya by studying like crazy for the entrance exam... Oh shoot, I-I'm sorry, I can't chat right now. Mentioning the Akademiya reminds me that my academic progress report is due soon... and I still haven't got any progress to write about yet.

  • Layla's Favourite Food

Every night before I go to bed, I make myself a glass of warm milk, in the hope I'll sleep well tonight, hope I'll sleep well tonight, hope I'll sleep well tonight... Zzz...

  • Layla's Hobbies

Drawing Star Charts is really tiring work... I really don't think I'd be able to keep at it if it wasn't something I'm interested in. You have to use a ruler, then do some calculations on paper, then check past Starlogs... Before you know it, the whole day is gone. But then when I look at the finished product, a huge, neatly drawn, accurate map of the stars... it always gives me a huge sense of accomplishment.
