How to Use Jean

Use Gale Blade to Launch Enemies

Genshin - Jean
Gale Blade Can Pull and Push Enemies

The Elemental Skill, Gale Blade, allows Jean to pull enemies towards her and launch them to your chosen direction. Tap her Elemental Skill to automatically blow your enemies away. Hold it to pull and launch enemies off a platform, towards the water, the sky, or the wall!

Take note that enemies launched will take fall damage as they hit the ground.

Dandelion Breeze For Burst Healing and Damage

Genshin - Jean
Elemental Burst: Dandelion Breeze

Jean's Elemental Burst, Dandelion Breeze, sets up a large Anemo AoE and provides heavy heals over time. Damage is also dealt to enemies entering or exiting the field.

Since Jean's healing ability scales with ATK, her elemental burst and ability to heal herself and the party gives Jean tank-like qualities in solo play, and especially in multiplayer.

Charged Attacks Can Lift Enemies Up

Genshin - Jean Charged Attack - Normal Attack: Favonius Bladework
Normal Attack: Favonius Bladework

Aside from dealing heavy damage with her normal attacks, Jean's charged attack can lift enemies up as well. This gives you a chance to use her Elemental Skill to launch your enemies away!

For larger enemies like Mitachurls, you need to do her charged attack twice to completely topple them!

Guiding Breeze makes cooking a Breeze

Genshin - Guiding Breeze
Passive Talent: Guiding Breeze

Jean's Passive Talent, Guiding Breeze, grants a 12% chance of obtaining double the expected number of items when cooking recovery food. This further boosts Jean's overall party utility.
