Jiyan is a 5-Star Aero character added to Wuthering Waves in the very first event Banner of its 1.0 launch.

While Jiyan is featured as a boosted 5-Star character on his Prevail the Lasting Night Banner in version 1.0, he will eventually return to Wuthering Waves at some point in the future when the Banner schedule cycles back to him.

To prepare for when you get him, we've listed Jiyan's Ascension materials and Forte materials so you can level him up to his full potential right away. To understand how you might play him, we've also detailed Jiyan's kit and Resonance Chain.

Here's a summary of Jiyan's kit in Wuthering Waves:

  • Rarity: 5-Star.
  • Element: Aero.
  • Weapon: Broadblade.
  • Basic Attack: Lone Lance.
  • Forte Circuit: Qingloong at War.
  • Resonance Skill: Windqueller - Jiyan dashes forward, dealing Aero damage. This can also be performed while Jiyan is in the air.
  • Resonance Liberation: Emerald Storm: Prologue - Jiyan enters the Qingloong mode for increased anti-interruption, and his basic attack, heavy attack, and dodge counter are converted into the Lance of Qingloong heavy attack. While using Lance of Qingloong, Jiyan can perform up to three continuous attacks of Aero damage that is considered heavy attack damage.
  • Intro Skill: Tactical Strike - Jiyan pierces the target in mid-air, dealing Aero damage.
  • Outro Skill: Discipline - When the next character's (or other characters on a nearby team that activates an Outro Skill) heavy attack hits a target, Jiyan summons Qingloong to launch a coordinated attack, dealing Aero damage equal to 313.40% of Jiyan's attack. This attack lasts for eight seconds, and can be triggered once every second, up to two times.
  • Inherent Skill one: Heavenly Balance - After casting his Intro Skill, Jiyan's attack increases by 10% for 15 seconds.
  • Inherent Skill two: Tempest Taming - When Jiyan attacks a target, his Crit Damage increases by 12% for eight seconds.

Jiyan's basic active Skills

Jiyan's basic attack can perform up to five consecutive hits, dealing Aero damage, while his heavy attack consumes stamina to thrust forward, also dealing Aero damage.

Holding the basic attack button during Jiyan's heavy attack, activates Windborne Strike after his heavy attack ends, dealing Aero damage. Alternatively, if you release Jiyan's basic attack during a heavy attack, an Abyssal Slash is instead released after Jiyan's heavy attack ends, dealing Aero damage.

For his mid-air attack, Jiyan consumes stamina to perform a mid-air plunge, dealing Aero damage. After this plunging attack, Jiyan can use a basic attack to perform a follow-up attack that deals Aero damage. Additionally, after using Jiyan's Windborne Strike heavy attack or the Windqueller Resonance Skill in the air, he can perform a mid-air attack, dealing Aero damage.

Lastly, Jiyan can use a basic attack after a successful Dodge to attack the target with Aero damage.

Jiyan's Forte Circuit Skill

When casting his Windqueller Resonance Skill, if Jiyan's has 30 Resolve or more, then he consumes 30 points of Resolve to increase the damage of this Windqueller by 20%. When Jiyan is in Qingloong Mode, the damage of his Windqueller is still increased by 20%, but he no longer consumes Resolve.

When casting his regular Resonance Liberation, if Jiyan has 30 Resolve more more, 30 points of Resolve are consumed to activate Emerald Storm: Finale, which deals Aero damage that is considered heavy attack damage. Emerald Storm: Finale can also be cast in mid-air at low altitude.

Jiyan can hold up to 60 Resolve, and he accumulates Resolve when his Lone Lance normal attack or Intro Skill hits a target. However, if Jiyan does not hit a target within 15 seconds, his Resolve gradually decreases.
