Mika Talents and Skills Brief Explanation

Planning to pull for Mika? Here's a brief explanation of his talents so you can understand his kit better!

Mika– a young knight born to an ordinary family. He serves as a Front-Line Surveyor in his Company. He is a low-key and cautious character.

Mika is a support character who uses his Cryo Vision to both boost the party’s combat capabilities and heal his teammates. His Elemental Skill can increase the ATK SPD of all active characters and his Passive Talent can strengthen the skill’s effect based on the number of enemies he hits, allowing his teammates to gain Physical DMG Bonus.

His Elemental Burst can restore HP for nearby party members and when active characters hit an opponent with a Normal Attack, Mika will help them regenerate HP once.

Keep in mind this information is officially released by the developer prior to Mika’s release in version 3.5, so the explanation is simple and straight to the point. A more thorough explanation will be created by 2Board after his release.

Normal Attack: Spear of Favonius – Arrow’s Passage

Normal Attack
Charged Attack

Normal Attack: Combos up to five strikes, alternating between the crossbow and polearm.
Charged Attack: Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward, dealing damage to enemies along the way.

Elemental Skill: Starfrost Swirl

Elemental Skill

Mika uses his crossbow to attack, granting all characters in your party Soulwind. When characters in the Soulwind state are on the field, their ATK SPD will be increased. Will take effect in different ways if Tapped or Held.

Fires a Flowfrost Arrow that can pierce through opponents, dealing Cryo DMG to enemies it comes into contact with.

Enters Aiming Mode, locking on to an opponent and firing a Rimestar Flare at them, dealing Cryo DMG. When the Rimestar Flare hits, it will rise before exploding, launching Rimestar Shards into a maximum of 3 other opponents, dealing Cryo DMG.

Elemental Burst: Skyfeather Song

Elemental Burst

Derives the ability to spur his teammates on from the recited prayers of the knightly order, regenerating HP for all nearby party members. This healing is based on Mika’s Max HP and will grant them the Eagleplume state.


When the Normal Attacks of active characters affected by Eagleplume hit an opponent, Mika will help them regenerate HP based on his Max HP.
Characters affected by this state can only regenerate HP in this way once per short interval of time.

Talents: Suppressive Barrage

Passive Talent

Per the following circumstances, the Soulwind state caused by Starfrost Swirl will grant characters the Detector effect, increasing their Physical DMG by 10% when they are on the field:
✦ If the Flowfrost Arrow hits more than one opponent, each additional opponent hit will generate 1 Detector stack.
✦ When a Rimestar Shard hits an opponent, it will generate 1 Detector stack. Each Rimestar Shard can trigger the effect 1 time.
The Soulwind state can have a maximum of 3 Detector stacks, and if Starfrost Swirl is cast again during this duration, the pre-existing Soulwind state and all its Detector stacks will be cleared.

Extra Story

Whenever he shows up at the Knights of Favonius headquarters, Mika always swiftly finishes any discussions to be had with his fellow knights, then quietly slips away to avoid becoming a hindrance to others’ work.

Mika always gets nervous when someone strikes up a conversation with him, frantically, scampering away right after politely putting an end to the idle chatter. The knights know that the young man’s name is Mika, and that he is Huffman’s younger brother and the second son of the Schmidt family. They also know that he is a member of the Reconnaissance Company, but nothing much beyond that.

Few are aware of what Mika’s job entails, nor do they know that the widely-promoted, updated version of their military map is the fruit of his labors.

The new map consists of detailed statistical data regarding almost every corner of Mondstadt with practical markers indicating road conditions areas with heightened monster activity, high ground that can serve as temporary strongholds, and the distribution of natural resources… The amount of detail could almost make your head spin. All of this is the result of Mika’s own labor throughout the two years he spends traveling all across Mondstadt and investigating every inch of terrain he set foot on.

Knights who have fought alongside Mika know that he finds using both lance and crossbow at the same time the most convenient, and his unique fighting style has left a lasting impression. However, they have also been solemnly “warned” by Mika to never speak of him to others unless absolutely necessary.

“Mika’s terrified of drawing the attention of others – he’ll get nervous if you so much stare at him, to say nothing of showering him with compliments. He’s been a great asset to the Knights and helped us out a lot, so respecting his boundaries is the least we can do as seniors!”

If you want to wish for him in the next banner, you can pre-farm for his materials early on as it was just officially announced: Mika Ascension and Talent Materials
