After miHoYo revealed Sayu along with three other characters, a recent leak on the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor discord channel gave some additional insight about her Elemental Skill and Burst.
After a couple of banner re-runs miHoYo stepped up their game when it comes to adding new content to the game, especially if we talk about new characters. miHoYo has officially confirmed her arrival by posting a couple of pictures on their social media accounts featuring upcoming characters such as Kazuha, Yoimiya, Sayu and the long-awaited Ayaka.
Recently, an interesting post on the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor discord channel revealed some additional information about the Anemo user Sayu.
Her Elemental Skill (E) will cause her to curl into a spinning wheel and crash into enemies while dealing Anemo damage. The skill have a hold and tap animation. If you just press the skill, Sayu will roll a short distance forward before performing a dancing kick.
Holding the skill will allow her to continue her roll forward while gaining increased resistance to interruptions. Players will be able to control the direction of movement, triggering the skill again will have the same dancing kick animation, but the damage will be significantly higher. The cooldown is extended the longer she keeps rolling.
Elemental Burst (Q) will create a small helper for Sayu that deals Anemo damage to nerby enemies and heals teammates. If nerby teammates have their HP above 70 per cent it will deal damage to enemies. However if there are party members whose HP is below 70 per cent, the effect will heal the lowest HP unit. If there are no enemies nerby, the healing effect will extend above 70 per cent
When it comes to the day of release, there were no official confirmations. All of the newly announced characters, besides Kazuha, will most likely not make it into the 1.6 update. 1.7 should be arriving around June 20, at least according to miHoYo's update schedule.
