Jiyan in Wuthering Waves

Jiyan is likely going to be one of the earlier limited introductions in Wuthering Waves, and if you’re wondering about his kit and materials, here’s all you need to know. 

Kuro Games’ open-world RPG, Wuthering Waves, is all set to release on May 22, 2024, with a studded cast of 17 playable characters. Among the group, one of the standouts for the community was Jiyan, who was highly sought after in recent betas. 

All that said, here is the full kit of Jiyan in Wuthering Waves, as well as all his known materials, based on the most recent CBT. 

Who is Jiyan in Wuthering Waves?

Jiyan in Wuthering Waves is a General who stands guard in the well-fortified city of Jinzhou. With an unwavering sense of justice and law, Jiyan bid farewell to his family’s tradition of medicine and took the job as a soldier to protect his city from Tacet Discords.

That’s all the information revealed about Jiyan and his general story so far. We’ll learn more as we approach closer to release, and we will update whenever more details are shared. 

When will Jiyan release in Wuthering Waves?

Kuro Games have not revealed Jiyan’s release date for Wuthering Waves, but since he is the limited banner character, we expect him to be part of the very first limited banner. So, it is likely that he’ll be released alongside the game on May 22, 2024.
