  • "Genshin Impact" Update 2.1 is believed to drop on Sept. 1
  • The next update would reportedly feature La Signora as a boss
  • MiHoYo has not yet confirmed anything about La Signora being in "Genshin Impact" Update 2.1

La Signora, the eighth Fatui Harbinger from Snezhnaya, has been absent in "Genshin Impact" for a while but rumors have it that she is the Crimson Witch of Flames and she would return in the hit gacha game as a boss in the next update.

A new gameplay video showcasing La Signora surfaced online a few days ago. Many fans are now convinced that the character and the Crimson Witch are the same. The leaked gameplay footage, shared by insider Kaedehara Kazuha on YouTube,  shows La Signora in multiple phases. In the first phase, the character is in her standard form.

Interestingly, she turns into a flame witch, which many fans believe is a solid indication that La Signora is the Crimson Witch of Flames. Moreover, there is an artifact set that talks about a woman who abandons her mortal body and becomes a pure flame, which fans think is the actual artifact set shown in the leaked gameplay video.

The insider claimed that Chinese gaming studio miHoYo would release the La Signora boss fight as a new mission in "Genshin Impact" Update 2.1. If the leak is accurate, fans could fight against this powerful character on Sept. 1. The character does not only exudes stunning beauty but also possesses great strength and power.

In Venti's story scene, La Signora defeated Venti and took away his vision. She can defeat one of the Archons in Teyvat, making her an extremely dangerous opponent.  To defeat her, fans must know more about her strengths and weaknesses.

La Signora is a cryo boss with powerful attacks, including the ability to create a cryo shield that surrounds her. As she positions inside the shield, she unleashes ice slashes and showers of ice arrows against opponents. She then jumps and lands behind the opponent and suddenly attacks them. 

When her HP bar decreases by 80%, she transforms into a big ice root that drops ice balls and releases ice creepers. In the  leaked video gameplay, La Signora breaks her ice root and respawns as a Pyro boss wielding a long pyro whip after her ice root form. Her Elemental Burst unleashes a shower of fireballs. It then allows her to transform into a phantom to hunt opponents and continue her attack using a whip.

Unfortunately, miHoyo has not yet said anything about the La Signora boss gameplay.
