The Genshin Impact fan community has very interesting concepts and ideas that they materialize into cool fan art and animation. As such many of them share their content through the Genshin Impact subreddit which houses quite a big number of users. Recently, a Reddit user under the username u/princessailish posted her own fan concept of Barbara from Genshin Impact, as a mage staff user.
Genshin Impact fans are impressed by the fan art of mage Barbara
The Reddit user posted a fan art of Barbara, who is a 4 Star Hydro Catalyst character, holding a Staff as a weapon. Her design is inspired by Magical Girls like Sailor Moon or Cardcaptor Sakura, with a very fairy-like outfit. The concept suits Barbara very well given by her Character design and personality are that of a sweet idol.
Some fans in the comments suggested that Barbara’s design reminded them of ‘Lux’ who is a character in League of Legends. They both have similarities in their Blonde hair and blue eyes, not to mention both are wielding staffs too.
This is not the first time that fans have shared alternatives to the canon Weapons in Genshin Impact. As we are well into the end-game as of now, many fans have been anticipating different Weapon styles in the game. There are also some characters that fans think would look good in different weapons. For example- back when Hu Tao was first shown, fans were talking about how giving Hu Tao a scythe would fit her character tremendously given that she is a gatekeeper of the borders of the Dead and the Living.
It is indeed too late to introduce new weapon types in Genshin Impact which is a shame since there is room for more cool and interesting gameplay with different variations of weapons. Since Genshin long introduced the concept of Guns in the canon game, fans have been anticipating a different pace of game style in Fontaine due to its rumors of being a modernized and technologically advanced Nation. Suffice it to say, we can only wait patiently to see if Genshin Impact takes the reign in showing more diversified weaponry in the game.
