Gorou's the general of Sangonomiya Army, is expected to be an essential part of the rise of a new Geo era in Genshin Impact 2.3.
During the Genshin Impact 2.3 Livestream, we get a preview of her abilities and talents. He would be a buffer for teams with many members carrying Geo Visions.
Release Time and Schedule
Players can expect the Genshin Impact Update 2.3 to go live Wednesday, November 24th, 2021.
- The server's maintenance takes around five hours, with players being compensated 300 Primogems for the downtime.
Gorou is part of the second banner for Genshin Impact 2.3 that will arrive around December 13, 2021.
Normal Attacks - Ripping Fang Fetching
In the case of normal attacks. Gorou's design follows the pattern of most 4-star bow users, a combination of five arrows and a charged attack infused with Geo Element.
|Normal Attack||Perform up to 5 consecutive shots with bow.|
|Plunged Attack||Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG upon impact.|
|Charged Attack||Perform a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG. While aiming, stone crystals will accumulate on the arrowhead. A fully charged crystalline arrow will deal Geo DMG.|
Elemental attack - Inuzaka All-Round Defense
AoE Geo attack that after hitting enemies sets a Geo Construct called: General’s War-Banner. This banner provided buffs based on the number of Geo characters in the player's party.
Cooldown: 10 Seconds
|Initial Attack||Deals AoE Geo DMG and sets up a General’s War-Banner.|
|Passive||Buffs based on the number of party members with Geo Visions: a) 1 Geo member grants the “Standing Firm” buff: DEF bonus. b) 2 Geo members add the “Impregnable” buff: Grants resistance to interruption. c) 3 Geo party members add the “Shatter” buff: Grants a Geo DMG bonus.|
|Conditions||General’s War-Banner is a Geo Construct. Only one can exist on the field at any one time|
Elemental burst - Juuga: Forward Unto Victory
Gorou deals AoE Geo DMG and creates a field known as General's Glory. This field provides the same buffs as General's War Banner, based on the number of party members whose Element is Geo.
Cooldown: 20 seconds
|It will move together with the active character.|
|It will generate 1 Crystal Collapse every 1.5s that deals AoE Geo DMG to 1 opponent within its AoE. It will pull elemental shards created by the Crystallize Reaction within its AoE to your active character|
|If a Generals Banner War was previously created, it will be destroyed with this ability. While General's Glory is activated, players can not create a General’s War-Banner|
It seems Gorou is everything about creating the ultimate mono Geo team, providing buffs with more Geo characters on your team.
Alternatively, he will perform well as Physical DMG support and Geo Battery.
|C1 - Rushing Hound: Swift as the Wind||The cooldown of Inazuka All-Round Defense will decrease by 2s, every time other characters do damage during Gorou's Elemental Attack and Elemental BUrst.|
|C2 - Steady as a Clock||Every Elemental Shard from a Crystallize Reaction during General's Glory will increase the duration of this elemental burst 1s, up to a max of 3s.|
|C3 - Mauling Hound: Fierce as Fire||Increases the Level of Inuzaka All-Round Defense by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.|
|C4 - Lapping Hound: Warm as Water||When General’s Glory is in the “Impregnable” or “Shatter” states, it will also heal the active character within its AoE every 1.5s for 50% of Groou’s own DEF.|
|C5 - Striking Hound: Thunderous Force||Increases the level of Juuga: Forward Unto Victory by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.|
|C6 - Valiant Hound: Mountainous Fealty||When the General’s War-Banner or General’s Glory are currently providing buffs of the “Standing Firm,” “Impregnable,” and “Shatter” levels, the Crit DMG of Geo DMG dealt by all party members is increased by 10%/20%/40% respectively.|
The information is based on the latest Genshin Impact 2.3 Livestream, all details are subject to change in the final version.
