In combat, Cyno is a 5-star Electro Polearm character. Like Raiden Shogun, Cyno enters a special state where his normal attacks will be enhanced.

Cyno Ascension Materials

These are the ascension materials players need for Cyno. Almost all are available now, but we will have to wait for Genshin Impact 3.1 to collect scarabs in the Sumeru Desert.

Thunderclap Fruitcore

Ascension material dropped by the Electro Regisvine, one of the new bosses released in Genshin Impact 3.0.

    • 18 Divining Scroll
    • 30 Sealed Scroll
    • 36 Forbidden Curse Scroll

Cyno Talent Materials

One of the best ways to gather Talent Materials for Cyno is by attacking camps of Hilichurls.

  • Samachurls are found in all areas of the game, so it is not very hard to collect these materials.
  • To increase Cyno Talents to the max, players required:
    • 18 Divining Scroll
    • 66 Sealed Scroll
    • 93 Forbidden Curse Scroll

Admonition Series

For the second Tier of Talent Materials, Genshin Impact introduced a new Domain Of Mastery called Steeple of Ignorance.

The domain, instead of Dropping Books, now travelers will receive Stone Tables, but they work in the same way as the previous talent materials.

Best Weapons & Artifacts for Cyno

Fortunately, there are a lot of Gacha and F2P polearm good options in the game. Even though probably, the best weapon for Cyno will be his signature weapon, the Staff of Scarlet Sands.

But if you are thinking of skipping the next weapon banner, these are the weapons we think will suit Cyno well.

Primordial Jade Winged-spear

  • Weapons of the Primordial Jade Series are top-notch for most DPS characters, and Cyno is no exception, with a high ATK based and Crit. Rate will increase the Damage output of the new Electro 5-star character.

The Catch

  • The weapon from the Inazuma fishing association is a 4-star weapon in the ball level of some 5-stars with a massive buff to Elemental Burst DMG.
  • Based on Cyno's skills, we know his primary source of DMG is his Elemental Burst, which works similarly to the Raiden Shogun special attack. Therefore the Catch is the best F2P option.

If you don't have any of these two weapons, you can pair Cyno with any 5-star polearm in your inventory and have decent results.

Best Artifacts

For Cyno's artifact set, we think that Gilded Dreams is an excellent choice cause it buffs either his ATK or Elemental Mastery, both valuable stats.

Cyno, in battle, stays for long periods in the field to unleash all the damage of his abilities. Therefore Energy Recharge is not an issue. So, we recommend focusing on Crit. Rate/Crit DMG and Elemental Master.

Gladiator's Finale

Luckily, Cyno seems to be very flexible when it comes to Artifacts. Hence players can use the very accessible Gladiator's Finale Set as an alternative, especially if they have High DMG stats.

Thundering Fury

The set for Electro DMG dealer is also an option for the reduction of Cooldown, but the CD reduction can mess with the timing of Cyno's passive Featherfall Judgment.
