A recent tweet from a popular Genshin Impact leaker revealed the walking animation for one of the upcoming characters - Yaoyao. She will apparently be one of the first Dendro characters in the game.

Yaoyao is one of the most anticipated characters in Genshin Impact and her absence from the 1.4 update generated even more hype around this Dendro character. A most recent tweet from a popular Genshin Impact leaker called Lumie revealed the walking animation of the game's first Dendro character.

There is a total of seven different elements in Genshin Impact, all of which are attached to the game's character, except one. We are yet to see a playable Dendro element user in the world of Teyvat.

So far the only elemental reaction that includes Dendro is Burning. The grass is considered a Dendro object and will spread the burn effect around the area. The fact that this element only interacts with Pyro might be one of the reasons why we haven't seen a Dendro character yet. It would surely require a major change to the elemental reaction fighting mechanics of the game.

However, back in November a couple of leaks hinted that there is already at least one Dendro character in the making. According to a credible Genshin Impact leaker called Zeniet  , Yaoyao was already in development back then.

Looking at her model it's safe to say that she will be a catalyst weapon user which generally means that she will be able to apply Dendro elements through her normal attacks

According to another leak , she's expected to be released in the 1.5 update which should go live at the end of April, if miHoYo keep their routine of releasing updates approximately every six weeks.
