Of all the concepts, players have pointed out that the one named Buerdeva is by far the best. He is based on the recent Dendro Archon Nahida, also known as Lesser Lord Kusanali. Even though many fans didn’t like her childish appearance at first, a great character arc turned her into one of the most popular characters in Genshin Impact.

Fans pointed out that despite its harmless appearance, Buerdeva could easily be a Mythical Psychic-type Pokémon like Mew that was part of Generation 1. According to the comments section, the second most popular concept features a three-stage evolution based on the first five-star character to arrive during Genshin Impact version 3.1: General Mahamatra, better known as Cyno.

The three stages of his evolution perfectly resemble his connection with the Pactsworn Pathclearer which is an appropriate state that Cyno can activate using his elemental burst, Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness. Cyno is a great choice for all players who need a strong DPS character in Genshin Impact. He has great synergy with Nahida since a lot of his damage is tied to elemental mastery which can be provided by the new Dendro Archon.

Genshin Impact is now available on Mobile, PC, PS4 and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
