Who is Lyney in Genshin Impact?

Lyney is the brother of Lynette and Freminet and for a long time, they lived on the street, but thanks to Arlecchino they got a home, so he is still in touch with Fatui. Lyney and Lynette learned the art of magicians from Cesar and became really good at what they do, garnering .


Lyney is far from the strongest hero, but with the right team, he will bring a lot of value as the main damage dealer. He is easy to learn to play and scales rapidly, so if you combine him with Bennett, you will create an invincible team.


Since Lyney is best suited for Mono Pyro teams, you probably won't have any reactions. Also, he does not have that many potential team comps, so it can become boring to play him over time. Another problem is that this character mostly damages one target only, so it is better not to take teams with him against groups of enemies.

The best way to increase Lyney's effectiveness is to add as many Pyro characters to your team as possible. That's why Bennett is the best support for him and is used in almost all team comps with Lyney. Cryo characters are also good allies for Lyney, but then her damage will not be as good.

  • Xiangling
  • Bennett
  • Kazuha
  • Rosaria

The new Lyney character will be a great option for you if you've been wanting to play as a Pyro DPS for a long time. But choosing the best equipment and allies for an unfamiliar character can be difficult, so we hope that our guide will be helpful.
