Chongyun (Chinese: 重云 Chóngyún, "Layers of Clouds") is a playable Cryo character in Genshin Impact.

An exorcist from Liyue, Chongyun was born with excessive yang (positive) energy, which has proven to be both a help and a hindrance. It makes him a very effective exorcist, but it also means he has never seen a spirit for himself — they flee before he can even lay eyes on them. It has also made him particularly susceptible to any kind of heat or strong emotion, which leads to some rather... unexpected results.

Talent Spirit Blade Chonghua's Layered Frost.pngSpirit Blade: Chonghua's Layered FrostElemental Skill
Chongyun strikes the ground with his greatsword, causing a Cryo explosion in a circular AoE in front of him that deals Cryo DMG.

After a short delay, the cold air created by the Cryo explosion will coalesce into a Chonghua Frost Field, within which all Sword, Claymore and Polearm-wielding characters' weapons will be infused with Cryo.

  • This skill generates 4 Elemental Particles when it hits at least 1 enemy
  • Chongyun's 2nd constellation level, Atmospheric Revolution, causes Elemental Skills and Elemental Bursts cast within the field to have the CD time decreased by 15%.
  • Chongyun's 2nd ascension talent, Rimechaser Blade, summons a spirit blade to strike enemies when the Chonghua Frost Field's duration ends, lowering enemy's Cryo resistance.
    • When equipped with the Sacrificial Greatsword and its passive is triggered, using the Elemental Skill again while a Chonghua Frost Field is on the field instantly ends the previous Chonghua Frost Field, thus triggering Rimechaser Blade.
  • The enchantment is removed when switching characters and is not transferred between characters, but is applied instantly with no delay.
  • Overriding infusions (see Elemental Infusion#Overriding Infusions for details):

Talent Spirit Blade Cloud-Parting Star.pngSpirit Blade: Cloud-Parting StarElemental Burst
Performing the secret hand seals, Chongyun summons 3 giant spirit blades in mid-air that fall to the earth one by one after a short delay, exploding as they hit the ground.

When the spirit blades explode, they will deal AoE Cryo DMG and launch opponents.

  • Chongyun's 6th level constellation, Rally of Four Blades, causes this skill to deal 15% more DMG to enemies with a lower percentage of their Max HP remaining than Chongyun. This skill will also summon 1 additional spirit blade.
