Understanding how elemental reactions work in Genshin Impact can help you make the best decisions when it comes to team formation and which players to choose when facing specific enemies. If you want to know the role of each element’s, here are all the details.
Genshin Impact has six main elements. If we also include Dendro, there will be seven, although there is currently no playable Dendro character. Each element reacts when it comes into contact with another element.
Pyro + Cryo = Melt, If Cryo is applied first, it will cause double damage. If Pyro is applied first, it will cause 1.5 times damage.
Pyro + Hydro = Vaporize, If Pyro is applied first, it will cause double damage. If Hydro is applied first, it will cause 1.5 times damage.
Pyro + Electro = Overload, Creates an AOE explosion.
Pyro + Dendro = Burning, Causes damage over time.
Anemo + any element = Swirl, It will cause elemental damage from the applied element and cause more reactions when other elements are added.
Geo + any element = Crystallize, It creates a shield that increases resistance to added elements, but also increases vulnerability to weak points of that element.
Cryo + Hydro = Frozen, It won’t give damage, but it can keep the target in place. When the target is hit by a Claymore, plunging attacks, Geo or explosion, the frozen drive smashes.
Cryo + Electro = Superconduct, Causes AOE Cryo damage & lowers physical resistance of targets by 40%.
Hydro + Electro = Electro-Charged, Causes Electro damage over time to target and to nearby wet enemies.
