Torrential Shock
Description
Raises both arms before unleashing a cross-shaped water projectile with its blades dealing 25% ATK as Hydro DMG. If this projectile deals DMG to the player, also applies a debuff to the entire team that extends the cooldown of all Elemental Skills and Bursts that are already on cooldown by 6 seconds.

Strategy
Care should be taken to avoid this attacks to avoid unnecessarily prolonging cooldowns.

Aqua Slash
Conjures a concentrated water projectile with its blade and fires it forward, each dealing 50% ATK as Hydro DMG.
  • When unshielded, this attack may be used once.
  • When HP is below 60% and shield durability is above 1/3, this attack may be used twice.
  • When shielded, this attack may be used 4 times in a row.
Watery Rebirth
Description
After its HP reaches 20%, the Abyss Herald will imbue itself with a powerful Hydro shield, providing it immunity to all DMG until its shield is broken. Upon the shield's activation, deals 100% ATK as Hydro DMG in a large area around itself and causing heavy knockback. The Herald also gains new/upgraded attacks when it is equipped with a Hydro shield.
  • The Herald will immediately be defeated after its shield has been destroyed, even though it still has HP remaining.
  • While in this state, the Abyss Herald gains resistance to Frozen, shortening the Frozen effect's duration by ~70%.

Strategy
Dendro can most effectively damage this shield. Cryo is slightly weaker but can temporarily freeze the Herald.

Abyssal Roar
Turns into a spinning wheel and charges at the player, rapidly dealing 40% ATK, 20% ATK, or 10% ATK as Hydro DMG on contact. The number of charges the Abyss Herald will perform depends on how much health it has. If the Herald is above 60% health, it only lunges once at the player.

This attack is only used when in the Dark Descent state.

Strategy
Care should be taken to avoid this attacks to avoid unnecessarily prolonging cooldowns.

AI Logic[]

  • An ability will only be used if all of the following conditions have been met:
    • The ability is not on cooldown
    • The target is within the range required by the ability
    • The ability has the highest priority out of all that meet the previous 2 conditions
      • A lower priority number indicates a higher priority.
      • If multiple abilities share the highest priority, one will be chosen at random.
  • Certain abilities with extra trigger conditions may defy regular ability logic.
  • Global Cooldown is shared with nearby Abyss Lector: Violet Lightnings.

Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents
Tutorial Enemies Abyss Herald Wicked Torrents
An Abyss Order monster that uses a dark power to command warped torrents in battle. Some of its attacks increase the CD of characters' skills if they are currently in cooldown.

Descriptions[]

Servants of the Abyss Order that use Hydro in combat. These silent figures are the vanguard of the Abyss, brandishing Tidal Blades that can engulf everything in an instant, crumpling armor and obliterating heretics. They shall bring preordained damnation upon the foolish masses.

Notable Hydro-Aligned Abyss Heralds[]

"Presager of the Abyss"[]

The Abyss Herald titled "Presager of the Abyss" has a total of 4 encounters in Archon Quests:

Trivia[]

  • Instead of "herald," the East Asian versions use the Christian term 使徒 "apostle."
  • The attacks Surging Tide, Abyssal Roar, and The Wicked Torrents all share part of their name with Tartaglia's Talents and Constellations:
    • Raging Tide is Childe's version of Surging Tide.
    • Cutting Torrent's Riptide effect has it shooting out three Hydro slashes originating from the targets body. The Wicked Torrents shows the Herald slashing the air around him to shoot out the Hydro slashes.
    • The constellations beginning with Abyssal Mayhem seem to reference the attack name, Abyssal Roar.
    • The attack line Annihilate is referenced in the Constellation Havoc: Annihilation.
      • Havoc: Obliteration and the attack lines Annihilate, and Decimate seems to be connected to each other as they all are synonyms for destroyed.
        • Taking the words together you can get a trio forming, Obliterate, Annihilate, and Decimate.
    • The passive talent Swords of Torrents is a direct reference to the weapons used by both Childe and the Abyss Herald.
