Genshin Impact Alhaitham Build Guide

Alhaitham is a brand new 5-Star Dendro sword character coming to Gensin Impact in update 3.4. This Alhaitham Best Build Guide explains how to get Altheim Ascension Materials and his best weapons.

As with new characters, you’ll need the correct ascension materials, Talent books and Artifacts to get the best use out of Alhaitham.
