Several new characters are confirmed to make their debut in patch 1.5 of Genshin Impact, and one of them is the Cryo claymore-wielder, Eula.

Along with Yangfei, Eula was confirmed for 1.5 in the recent miHoYo livestream. Many players have been saving up on wishes for the new characters, and recent damage buffs to Eula have given them even more reason to wish on her banner.

Data miners have been keeping track of Eula’s stats for a while now, and recent leaks suggest that miHoYo have buffed their much-anticipated character before her release.

Players have already assumed that Eula was made to be a main DPS option. She’s expected to have the second-highest base ATK in the game, second only to Xiao.

Now, data records predict the damage output of Eula’s normal attack to be 15-20% higher than previously expected. The damage from her Burst will be 17-19% higher as well.

A buff on a DPS character’s normal attack talent is always helpful, but the buff to Eula’s Elemental Burst is perhaps even more promising.

Eula’s Burst, named “Glacial Illumination,” deals Cryo damage and creates a Lightfall Sword that hangs above and follows the character. As Eula damages enemies, the sword gains stacks. Once 30 stacks accumulate or Eula leaves the field, the sword explodes and deals AoE damage.

The sword’s final damage scales based on how many stacks there are. According to the recent buffs, stacks will contribute even more to the final damage of the Lightfall Sword.

Damage from Eula’s Elemental Skill also stacks on the Lightfall Sword. As Eula’s held Skill ability is confirmed to lower enemy resistance to physical and Cryo DMG, her damage output is increased no matter how she attacks the enemies.

Players who pull Eula are almost certain to build a team around her. And with news of the recent buff, it seems increasingly likely that Eula will be one of the best DPS characters in the game to date.
