In Genshin Impact, when a character appears in Magic God missions or Legend quests with a special design, the player will immediately assume that this will be a playable character appearing in the future. It has been a trend that has appeared in the last few versions of Genshin Impact and is expected by all players.
However, the character Baizhu does not follow this trend. He appeared a long time ago, since the quest for Magic God Liyue. However, for more than 2 years now, Baizhu has never been included in the official game. Until now, after Genshin Impact officially launched the Thao-type character, Baizhu was announced to appear in the upcoming 3.6 version.
Recently, HoYoverse has officially posted the first images of Baizhu after the Sumeru version was released. According to leaked information, Baizhu will be a 5-star character who uses magic tools and belongs to the Thao system.
However, the remaining information about Baizhu has not been officially announced. According to what is announced, the player only knows that Baizhu is the owner of Bubu pharmacy. Everything that remains until now, such as the skill set, specific background or relationships of Baizhu with other characters in Liyue, is still a question mark.
The plot of Baizhu in Genshin Impact
Baizhu first appeared during the Magic God quest in the Liyue region. During this mission, the traveler and Paimon prepare for Rex Lapis’ funeral. They need to find a “coconut goat” for Qiqi – a girl who works for Baizhu’s Bubu pharmacy.
Also at the pharmacy, the player gets his first encounter with Baizhu. He is quite tall, with blue hair and a dark blue outfit. Besides, Baizhu also has a talking white snake called Changsheng lying on his neck. Many players speculate that, Changsheng will participate in Baizhu’s skills when he is officially playable. In addition, Baizhu also participates in many other missions, such as Yelan’s own mission or the 2022 – 2023 Lighthouse Festival event.
As Qiqi’s guardian, all information related to Baizhu mostly appears in her background. Baizhu adopted Qiqi to study her current state of zombie and his current state. Although highly respected by the people of Liyue, Baizhu also has its own sufferings.
Pharmacist Gui of Bubu Pharmacy once mentioned that Baizhu’s physical condition was extremely poor, he often had to recuperate at his residence after medical examination. He has never been unkind to everyone, leading to many characters having suspicions about Baizhu.
Leaked information about Baizhu . skill set
Currently, the official information about Baizhu’s skill set has not yet appeared. However, the leaked information has appeared on social networks and forums in China and surprised many people.
According to the plot, Baizhu is an apothecary, but leaked information indicates that he will most likely not be a healing character, depending on what skill set the producer chooses for the character. This.
In addition, a simple description of Baizhu’s two elemental skills and rage skill was also shared. Most likely, Baizhu will likely be a shield-making character with elemental skills. With the wrath skill, Baizhu will use the snake Changsheng (Longevity) to attack, similar to Yelan’s wrath. Many other information said that Baizhu was not very effective until it was upgraded to par 1.
However, these are still just rumors, it is not until Baizhu launches in the beta version that we can get a partial picture of his skill set. Not to mention, HoYoverse will continue to increase and decrease the strength of Baizhu significantly, so players should continue to be patient before making a decision regarding summoning Baizhu or not.
