Hover Up in the Sky!

The Five-Star Anemo Catalyst, Wanderer AKA Scaramouche is finally released on version 3.3 of Genshin Impact. The Fatui Harbinger first appeared in Version 1.1 of Genshin Impact and has been on the list of potential playable characters since then. He got significant story involvement in version 2.1 Raiden Shogun Archon Quest but had to wait until now to get his own boss domain and Playable Character release. If you don’t know what else is waiting for you in the latest version of Genshin Impact, check out our version 3.3 update details while we discuss how to Build Wanderer with the best-recommended build, artifacts, weapons, and more.

Genshin Impact Wanderer Talents and Playstyle

Wanderer hails from the Anemo Element which is pretty much a stand-alone element when it comes to dealing damage. like his counterpart Anemo damage dealers, Wanderer has access to strong damage multiplier talents which allows him to deal high raw damage. Since Wanderer can’t proc elemental reaction, he is reliant on his Supports to amplify his damage. He hovers around in the air after using his elemental skill and can continuously spam his changed attack without using any stamina.

Skill and Burst Talent

Hanega: Song of the Wind (Skill)Deals Anemo DMG momentarily after which the Wanderer hovers midair. He then enters the Windfavored state, converting his normal and charged attacks to Kuugo: Fushoudan and Toufukai, respectively.
Kyougen: Five Ceremonial Plays (Burst)Compresses a vacuum of Anemo ball that deals multiple instances of Anemo upon contact. If Wanderer uses his burst while in the Windfavored state, Windfavored will end immediately.

Passive Talent

Gales of Reverie: During his Windfavored state, the Wanderer has a chance of gaining another buff effect.

Strum the Swirling Winds: The Wanderer can decrease the Mora required when ascending Bows and Catalysts by 50%.


While Wanderer is a strong character at his base constellation, he does have access to some strong constellations that noticeably boost his damage by a lot. His C6 is a significant boost this damage and C2 is also really good for an early constellation.

The latest artifact set from the summer dessert is the best-in-slot artifact for Wanderer. The artifact was made with his whole kit in mind it offers a significant boost in damage for Wanderers Charge, Normal, and Plunge attacks with its 4-Piece set bonus.

2. 4-piece Viridescent Venerer

Genshin Impact VV Artifact

The 4 piece VV artifact set is widely considered to be one of the best artifacts in Genshin Impact. While Dessert Pavilion excels when Wanderer is on-field DPS, the VV set is best when you have strong off-field sub-DPS who can use the resistance shred from the VV artifact set.

SetSet Bonus
Viridescent  Venerer2-Piece: Anemo DMG Bonus +15%
4-Piece: Increases Swirl DMG by 60%. Decreases opponent’s Elemental RES to the element infused in the Swirl by 40% for 10s.

3. 2 piece Dessert Pavilion + 2 Virdescent Vinerer

The raw 30% Anemo Damage boost from both of these artifact sets works surprisingly well and outperforms other attack stats artifact if you already have a good attack bonus from your support character.
