What Kind Of Character Is Lyney?

A Charged Attack Pyro DPS

What Kind

Lyney is a Pyro DPS that deals DMG mainly Charged Attack. He can deal powerful DMG with charged attack and summons a cat figure that will deal damage to enemy and taunt them while stacking "Props" that will boost his Elemental Skill DMG. He can also deal damage with Elemental Skill and Burst if it is active.

Strengths & Weakness Of Lyney

- Great Pyro infliction and damage.
- Does not require reactions like Vaporize to deal powerful damage.
- Has self-healing and amazing taunt that deals additional damage.
- Expensive to build since he uses all of his skills to deal damage.
- To maximize his passive, you need to use 2 Pyro Characters in the team limiting the team comps you can use.
- Can be difficult to use since he requires a pretty strict rotation and using Charged Attacks.

For Substitutes, Choose The Artifact With Best Sub-Stats

Lyney, especially when played with Mono-Pyro, already has multiple sources of ATK. DMG Bonus is better prioritized compared to ATK increasing artifacts. Sub-Stat matters more than the set so make sure to choose the set that has better sub-stat.

Unleashing his magic, Lyney turns himself into a Grin-Malkin Cat that can move around quickly. (Not to be mistaken for the Grin-Malkin Hat. They're two different props!)

he's so fun to play with he's the best


Lyney can team up with Zhongli of course. But also losing his bonus damage from "3 pyro characters". Or replace Kazuha with Zhongli.
So zhongli + xiangling + bennet


To defeat multiple enemies better, Lyney need Kazuha. Also need DEHYA, to avoid interupt. Because Thoma and Xinyan shields are weak, and when the shield breached, Lyney can kicked out while doing Charge Atk


I have test my lvl 90 8/8/8 Lyney at domain in fontaine, also Vourukasha domain, and domain in Tsurumi island (every difficult domain with multiple enemies). So he is somehow weak at multiple targets, because CA mechanics


the summary is :

1. Charge Atk until lv2 to the enemy , that action also will add stack indicator for his explosion.
2. Detonate with ESkills
