Emilie’s Abilities

Normal Attack: Shadow-Hunting Spear

  • Performs up to four consecutive spear strikes.
  • Charged Attack: Consumes stamina to unleash an upward slash.
  • Plunging Attack: Dives from mid-air, damaging enemies along the path and dealing AoE damage upon impact.

Elemental Skill: Fragrance Extraction

Emilie deploys a Lumidouce Case, dealing Dendro damage in an area of effect. This persistent case offers several functionalities:

  • Periodically fires projectiles that inflict Dendro damage on nearby enemies.
  • When opponents afflicted by Burning are near the case, they emit Scents at intervals. The Lumidouce Case gathers these Scents, upgrading to level 2 upon collecting two. This empowers its attacks:
    • Increased firing frequency of Puredew projectiles.
    • Enhanced damage dealt by Puredew projectiles.
  • Only one Lumidouce Case can be active at a time. It starts at level 1 and can be upgraded to level 2.

Passive: Arkhe: Pneuma

This passive complements Fragrance Extraction. After deploying the Lumidouce Case, a Spiritbreath Thorn periodically descends in front of Emilie, piercing an enemy and dealing Dendro damage aligned with the Pneuma element.

Elemental Burst: Aromatic Explication

Emilie utilizes fragrances to generate Dendro energy, creating a powerful level 3 Lumidouce Case that destroys any existing cases. This advanced case functions differently:

  • Continuous Dendro Assault: The level 3 case unleashes a constant stream of Scented Dew that rains down on enemies within range, inflicting Dendro damage. This deluge occurs every 0.3 seconds, with a new enemy targeted every 0.7 seconds.
  • Scent Inheritance: When Aromatic Explication concludes, a level 1 case is created. If a case containing Scents was destroyed during the burst, the newly formed case inherits the previous case’s level and accumulated Scents.
  • Elemental Skill Lockout: While Aromatic Explication is active, Fragrance Extraction cannot be used to create a new Lumidouce Case.

Passive Talents
Emilie’s gameplay revolves around a unique mechanic called “Scents.” Details on her passive talents offer some insight:

  • Unknown: This passive increases Emilie’s damage against Burning enemies but significantly reduces it against Quickened foes.
  • Lingering Fragrance: When her Case (a deployable object) gathers two Scents, it releases a potent AoE Dendro attack.
  • Rectification: Grants party members increased Pyro resistance against Burning damage while her Case is active.

Emilie’s constellations offer exciting enhancements to her skillset. Here’s a glimpse into what each constellation provides:

  • Light Fragrance Leaching: This constellation empowers both “Fragrance Extraction” and the passive talent “Cleardew Cologne, Lingering Fragrance,” boosting their damage by 10%. Additionally, it enables nearby party members to generate extra “Scents” under specific conditions.
  • Lakelight Top Note: As Emilie’s “Case” accumulates “Scents,” she gains a potent “Special Blend” stack, significantly increasing her attack for a limited duration.
  • Exquisite Essence: Increases the level of Fragrance Extraction by three. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Lumidouce Heart: Extends the duration of Aromatic Explication and reduces the interval between selecting enemies for Scented Dew.
  • Puredew Aroma: Increases the level of Aromatic Explication by three. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Marcotte Trace: Unleash a fragrant flurry with “Abiding Fragrance.” This constellation empowers Emilie’s normal and charged attacks, converting them to Dendro damage and granting a substantial damage increase. However, this effect has limitations and a cooldown.

This guide will be continuously updated as more information about Emilie surfaces. With her arrival in Genshin Impact 4.8 approaching, get ready to harness the power of Dendro with the captivating Emilie!
