Genshin Impact: The Complete Lyney Constellations Guide and Tips

The best constellations for Lyney in Genshin Impact!

Genshin Impact Version 4.0 debuts “Spectacle of Phantasmagoria” Lyney (pyro/bow), the first event-exclusive 5* character from Fontaine. He is a pretty decent on-field DPS who shines in a limited number of teams. This guide will provide a detailed breakdown of the constellations for Lyney in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact Lyney guide: Breakdown of Lyney’s constellations

C1: Whimsical Wonders

Having 2 Grin-Malkin Hats and gaining 1 extra Prop stack makes it easier to stack more and deal with more DMG.

C2: Loquacious Cajoling

Lyney gains extra CRIT DMG just by being on the field. Since he is an on-field main DPS, he will always have all stacks of this bonus.

C3: Prestidigitation

Additional three levels to his Normal Attack talent, this is the first time in the history of Genshin Impact. This constellation is pretty great since most of his DMG comes from his charged attacks which scale off this talent.

C4: Well-Versed, Well-Rehearsed

Reduces enemies’ Pyro RES when they are hit by Lyney’s charged shots. This constellation further increases his raw Pyro DMG.

C5: To Pierce Enigmas

The additional three levels to his burst are nice to have, but it is not the most important constellation since the majority of his DMG comes from his charged shots.

C6: Guarded Smile

Lyney’s charged shots fire additional arrows, which is a straight-up DMG increase.

Final Thoughts

Every single one of Lyney’s constellations contributes to increasing his personal raw Pyro DMG. C2, C3, and C4 are his best constellations. C1 and C6 are amazing, but not as effective. C5 is not that great since his burst does not make up for most of his DMG.

It needs to be emphasized that Lyney is already amazing at C0 and does not need constellations to be good. They are all really good DMG increases, but none of them are mandatory. C3 is a great stopping point.
