The Wanderer is a 5-star playable Catalyst 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, no kin, and no 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, subject to certain limitations. Similar to the Traveler, the name given will be reflected in some of the game's interfaces — such as the Party Setup — and will persist across different game languages. If the player is dissatisfied with the name given during the quest, they may rename the Wanderer with the item An Appellative Stroke, but may only do so once.


  • Normal Attack: Yuuban Meigen


  1. Normal Attack: Performs up to 3 attacks using wind blades, dealing Anemo DMG.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  • Elemental Skill: Hanega: Song of the Wind


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:

  1. Persistently consumes Kuugoryoku Points to maintain this hovering state.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  • Elemental Burst: Kyougen: Five Ceremonial Plays


Compresses the atmosphere into a singlular 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.

  • 1st Ascension Passive: Jade-Claimed Flower
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):
  1. Hydro: Kuugoryoku Point cap increases by 20.
  2. Pyro: ATK increases by 30%.
  3. Cryo: CRIT Rate increases by 20%.
  4. 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.

  • 4th Ascension Passive: Gales of Reverie
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.

  • Utility Passive: Strum the Swirling Winds
Mora expended when ascending Bows and Catalysts is decreased by 50%.


  • Level 1: Shoban: Ostentatious Plumage

When in the Windfavored state, the Attack SPD of the Wanderer's Kuugo: Fushoudan and Kuugo: Toufukai is increased by 10%.
Additionally, the wind arrows fired by the Passive Talent "Gales of Reverie" will deal an additional 25% of his ATK as DMG. You must unlock the Passive Talent "Gales of Reverie" first.

  • Level 2: Niban: Moonlit Isle Amidst White Waves
When in the Windfavored state, Kyougen: Five Ceremonial Plays will see its DMG increased by 4% per point of difference between the max amount of Kuugoryoku Points contrasted with Kuugoryoku's present capacity when using this skill.
Through this method, you can increase Kyougen: Five Ceremonial Plays's DMG by a maximum of 200%.
  • Level 3: Sanban: Moonflower Kusemai
Increases the Level of Kyougen: Five Ceremonial Plays by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Level 4: Yonban: Set Adrift into Spring
When casting Hanega: Song of the Wind, should the Passive Talent "Jade-Claimed Flower" be triggered, the character will gain buffs in correspondence to the contacted Elemental Type(s), and also obtain a random untriggered buff. A maximum of 3 such corresponding elemental buffs can exist simultaneously.
You must unlock the Passive Talent "Jade-Claimed Flower" first.
  • Level 5: Matsuban: Ancient Illuminator From Abroad
Increases the Level of Hanega: Song of the Wind by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Level 6: Shugen: The Curtains' Melancholic Sway
When the Wanderer actively hits an opponent with Kuugo: Fushoudan while in the Windfavored state, the following effects will occur:
  1. Deals an additional instance of Kuugo: Fushoudan at the position hit, dealing 40% of the attack's original DMG. This DMG will be considered Normal Attack DMG.
  2. When the Wanderer falls below 40 Kuugoryoku Points, restores 4 Points to him. Kuugoryoku Points can be restored in this manner once every 0.2s. This restoration can occur up to 5 times within one Windfavored duration.


After erasing his Fatui ties from Irminsul, the Wanderer is shown to be kind and considerate, although somewhat distracted as he lacked a human heart and name. The lack of a human heart caused him to long for feelings that he could not experience and thus willingly accepted his memories back to reclaim his sins to be himself once more.


Following the restoration of his memories, the Wanderer still retained all of his traits as Scaramouche, although he states that he had always acted as such to be both strict on himself and others and that he simply states what he sees in front of him. He is not fond of most of his former co-workers, especially Dottore (Genshin Impact) as a result of his machinations that caused him to become who he was in the first place.

原神/GenshinImpact - Wanderer

The Wanderer enjoys extremely bitter tastes. He despises sweets.

Character Mentions

He came about as a byproduct of creating the Shogun. Perhaps it's because I feel like I owe him something, but I do not wish to assert control over him.


Ei and Scaramouche

When he finally achieved the ambition he thought he'd been pursuing all along, was he content at last, or only emptier still? We only yearn for the skies because we cannot fly... Hmm, perhaps he should reflect on this once he has held the sheer emptiness of the skies in his grasp.


After he took the Gnosis, we lost all contact with him. Now comes the task of trying to hunt it down and get it back... I actually don't mind it — it means I get to travel all over. Wonder if I'll run into you somewhere along the way?

I thought it was a disaster waiting to happen at the time, but she (Raiden Shogun) insisted that she wasn't going to lift a finger against the object of her own creation. Had I known how things would unfold, I would have simply disposed of it without her knowing. Hmm? What about now? Hehe... Well, we're no longer waiting for the disaster to happen, are we?
