Baizhu is a playable Dendro character in Genshin Impact who was released in version 3.6. He is the owner of Bubu Pharmacy and Qiqi’s guardian, as well as a master of the medicinal arts and the latest recipient of a generational contract with a white snake named Changsheng. He can heal, shield, and apply Dendro to enemies with his skills, but he does not deal much personal damage. He uses a catalyst as his weapon and scales with HP stats.

He was recently released and his banner is currently online in Version 3.6 of Genshin Impact. We thought it was about time to guide readers on how his kit works and what he offers on the battlefield. Read on to find out what the first known Dendro playable unit is capable of.

How to Play Baizhu in Genshin Impact 3.6

Baizhu isn’t a DPS by any means. His personal damage is abysmal and he only shines in his exclusive role as a Dendro healer. Despite being a Catalyst user, his fighting style is melee- similar to Heizou– but unlike Heizou, his Normal Attacks have an even lesser range than Heizou’s. Meaning unless you’re standing extremely close to the enemies, your Normal attacks won’t hit.

His Elemental Skill is called “Universal Diagnosis” which allows him to control the Gossamer Sprite that attacks enemies around him and deals Dendro Damage. After performing three attacks or when no enemies are nearby, the Sprite will return and heal all party members around Baizhu based on his maximum HP. This Sprite will seek out the enemies closest to Baizhu and in general, they have a medium range. The Sprite applies Dendro to the enemies it makes contact with and the Sprite itself has no AoE so unless the enemies are grouped up extremely close to each other, you can expect it to only apply Dendro to three enemies.

Baizhu’s Elemental Burst is called “Healing Holism” which creates a small shield that regenerates every two seconds. It can also heal the active character based on Baizhu’s Max HP and deal Dendro DMG to nearby opponents. Every time the shield regenerates, ends, or breaks, it will heal the active character and deal Dendro DMG to nearby opponents by sending out another Sprite. While the shield itself is paper thin and will only block one hit- it does provide valuable interruption resistance. That said, since the shield breaks immediately, players will still be expected to dodge occasionally before the shield comes back on.

At 50k HP, Baizhu’s passive talents grant a 100% DMG Bonus to Bloom, Hyperbloom, Burgeon and Burning reactions every time a character is healed by his Elemental Burst. Aggravate and Spread reactions on the other hand only get a total of 40% DMG bonus under the same conditions. In reality, however, when numbers are compared, they only contribute up to about a 10% increase in your other party members’ damage. If the HP% of your active character is below 50%, Baizhu also decides to get 25% Healing Bonus but if their HP% is above that then he grants himself a 25% Dendro DMG bonus. 

Thus, in conclusion, Baizhu is a Dendro catalyst user who excels at healing, shielding, and applying Dendro to enemies with his skills. He is not a strong damage dealer, but he can support his allies by enhancing Dendro reactions such as Hyperbloom or Aggravate. He scales with HP stats, which benefit both his healing and Dendro buffs. He has a high energy requirement and his Dendro application is below average in AoE situations. His shield is also weak and cannot withstand big hits.

As an English Masters graduate, I always dreamt of becoming a writer as a profession. Alas! I was led astray by anime and gaming. I enjoy open-world RPGs that encourage exploration with easy but flashy combat along the way. Art and aesthetics also matter immensely to me so even in games my characters tend to stare off into space. If I’m not gaming or watching anime I’m probably just asleep and dreaming.
