Diona Kätzlein, the self-proclaimed Wine Industry Slayer, is a supporting character fromGenshin Impact who works as a bartender at Cat’s Tail and is the daughter of a hunter named Draff Kätzlein. Despite her job, she hates alcohol and aims to ruin the wine industry in Mondstadt. However, this task is difficult since her customers adore her drinks.
Normal Attack (Katzlien Style)
Katzlein Style is the combat style of Diona in Genshin Impact. Her normal attack involves shooting up to five consecutive shots using a bow. With the charged attack, she can perform a more accurate aimed shot that causes more damage. While aiming, the arrowhead accumulates biting frost, and a fully charged shot releases a frost arrow that deals with Cryo damage. Her plunging attack includes firing a shower of arrows while in mid-air before landing and causing area of effect damage upon impact.
Elemental Skill (Icy Paws)
Diona has a special ability called Icy Paw, which involves firing a paw-shaped projectile at opponents that deals with Cryo damage and creates a shield on impact. The amount of damage the shield can absorb is determined by Diona’s maximum health, while its duration depends on the number of Icy Paws that successfully hit the target.
By pressing the ability button, Diona can rapidly fire two Icy Paws. She will quickly dash backward if the ability button is held down before launching five Icy Paws. The shield created by a held attack will have a 75% damage absorption bonus.
The shield also provides a significant bonus in absorbing 250% Cryo damage. However, when the shield is formed, the active character will be affected by Cryo for a brief period.
Elemental Burst (Signature Mix)
Diona has a unique ability to throw a cold brew that causes area of effect Cryo damage and generates a Drunken Mist within the same area. The Drunken Mist results in continuous Cryo damage to opponents within the area while also restoring the health of characters within it.
