Aloy had several different identities in her original world on the basis of her genetics she was destined to be the heroine the current world wished for.
Genshin Impact Aloy: Features and abilities
Aloy has many special talents to use and win against enemies, they are
- Normal attack- Rapid-fire, this lets the player fire 4 continuous shots with the bow in one go.
- Charged attack- This attack allows the player to use Aloy for a more precise and accurate bow aim with frost on the arrowhead to deal Cryo damage.
- Frozen Wilds- This ability lets players use Aloy to throw a freeze bomb which explodes on contact dealing Cryo damage, this bomb then divides itself into multiple water droplets which are also explosive and explode on contact with the opponent dealing Cryo damage. This also provides Coil Stacks per attack.
- Coil- These Coil stacks are used to increase Aloy’s normal attack damage. When Aloy’s Coil Stacks are full she enters ‘Rushing Ice State’ which converts her normal attack damage to Cryo damage.
- Prophecies of Dawn- This allows Aloy to throw a Cryo-filled power cell in the opponent’s direction which can be detonated with an arrow.
Other than these special abilities Aloy also has some voiceovers and dialogues in-game which can be used with the character.
