Alhaitham is a Dendro DPS character who uses Chisel-Light Mirrors in combat. Here’s a short introduction to his skills before we go into more depth.
Alhaitham dashes forward when using his Elemental Skill and generates Chisel-Light Mirrors. While the Chisel-Light Mirrors persist, Alhaitham will obtain a Dendro Infusion. When his attacks hit opponents, Chisel-Light Mirrors will unleash a coordinated attack, dealing AoE Dendro Damage.
Alhaitham’s Elemental Burst creates a Particular Binding Field that deals with multiple instances of AoE Dendro Damage. All existing Chisel-Light Mirrors will be consumed to increase the number of Damage instances dealt.
Keep in mind this information is officially released by the developer prior to Alhaitham’s release in version 3.4, so the explanation is simple and straight to the point. A more thorough explanation will be created by 2Board after his release.

Normal Attack: Abductive Reasoning
Normal Attack: Perform up to 5 rapid strikes.

Elemental Skill: Universality An Elaboration on Form
[TAP E] Rushes forward, dealing Dendro DMG to nearby opponents when the rush ends, causing a Chisel-Light Mirror to form.
[HOLD E] Enters Aiming Mode to adjust the directions of Alhaitham’s rush attack.
When this elemental skill is unleashed, Alhaitham will generate 1 Chisel-Light Mirror. If there are no Mirrors at this time, he will generate 1 additional Mirror. Chisel-Light Mirrors will have the following properties:
● When he possesses Chisel-Light Mirrors, Alhaitham’s Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks will be converted to Dendro DMG. This cannot be overridden.
● When attacks of the aforementioned kind hit opponents, the Chisel-Light Mirrors will unleash a Projection Attack that deals AoE Dendro Damage based on the number of Mirrors on the field.
A total of 3 Chisel-Light Mirrors can exist at once.
● The Chisel-Light Mirrors will disappear one after the other over time, and will all disappear when Alhaitham leaves the field.
Elemental Burst: Particular Field: Fetters of Phenomena
Creates a Particular Binding Field and deals with multiple instances of AoE Dendro DMG.
If Chisel-Light Mirrors exist when this ability is unleashed, all such Mirrors will be consumed and increase the number of DMG instances dealt.
2 seconds after this ability is unleashed, if 0/1/2/3 Mirrors were consumed, Alhaitham will generate 3/2/1/0 new Mirrors in turn.
A capable person who keeps a low profile for too long is often perceived as someone with a mysterious identity and ulterior purposes. Alhaitham himself is a powerful rebuttal to all these cliché views:
He is a brilliant man, but he is only an ordinary employee of the Akademiya, with a stable job and a cushy house in Sumeru, leading a carefree and comfortable life.
Sometimes, people find it next to impossible to catch the current scribe in his office. Little do they know about the scribe, other than his name, “Alhaitham,” and that he is supposed to be present during work hours. The fact is, no one knows his whereabouts, and all they can do is leave documents and files on his desk.
Alhaitham couldn’t be more satisfied with how things are. The man might be at home or in the library, but he’ll never appear where people wish him to be. Having an entirely unpredictable schedule affords undisturbed freedom.
Alhaitham will be available in Genshin Impact on January 18 after the maintenance update is completed! Want to know how many Primogems you can obtain in the next update? Click here for the calculations!
