Al-Haytham in Genshin Impact is a Sumeru scientist who believes that humans and gods are equal and must help each other in order to survive. In this article, you can find out about all currently known leaks about the new 5⭐ character (including weapons, elements, appearance and release date).
Who is Al-Haytham
Al-Khaytham occupies a high position in Sumeru and is close to Dendro the Archon. According to WFP and SYP, the scientist will be a hero of legendary rarity. Xwides says that he will be seen in Sumeru’s teaser, and that his quest (possibly an event quest) will be released.
His name refers to the great scientist, the father of modern optics. Interestingly, based on the description of the Emerald Shadow artifacts, many players assume that the previous Archon Sumeru was blind.
Another interesting fact can be found on a sign near the Vanshu inn. Zhong Li left a note where he shared a pleasant pastime with a scientist from Sumeru. Probably, the consultant of the funeral Bureau is referring to Haytham.
Further, all information provided relates to CBT leaks and may change at any time.
When will Al-Haytham come out?
According to YelanLover, the release should not be expected before version 3.3. It is likely that Haytham will appear as a playable character only in 3.4, possibly later. You can track the exact date in the banner schedule for 2022.
Arms and Eye of God Al-Khaytham
According to information from many insiders, Haytham wields a one-handed sword and Dendro God’s Eye. The screenshot from the game, which is presented below, will help to verify this.
What does Al-Haytham look like?
Previously, images were presented that showed the approximate appearance of the character. Later, an anonymous insider leaked a screen revealing the scientist’s detailed appearance.
Despite the fact that Haisam is a scientist, he has a rather strong musculature and is tall (a model like Zhong Li).
The hero bears a resemblance to Su from Honkai, but with a redesigned costume. A difference is expected not only in appearance, but also in character: he will be more serious and smile much less often.
Another anonymous leak shows Al-Haytham in full growth. The image is blurry, but the resemblance to the previously shown image of the character is noticeable.
Its design is dominated by dark tones. The most striking part are the stones attached to the belt and between the collarbones. A cape with gold patterns will cover the entire back, like Itto’s.
The image shows the future characters, including Al-Haytham in the game:
