Elemental Absorption refers to how certain Anemo skills can absorb one of the four elements Electro, Pyro, Hydro or Cryo on its first contact with such an element and then become infused with that element, dealing DMG of that type in addition to Anemo DMG.

Generally, only one element can be absorbed per use. If multiple elements are present, there is a priority for which element is absorbed.

Additional elemental damage dealt by skills that have absorbed an element should not be confused with Swirl damage. Swirl damage is fixed damage based only on character level and elemental mastery, while additional elemental damage from elemental absorption is regular damage and is thus affected by the stats that normally affect damage, including attack, critical hit rate and damage, and elemental damage bonuses.

Sayu Sayu Yoohoo Art: Fuuin Dash Yoohoo Art: Fuuin Dash The special technique of the Yoohoo Ninja Arts!

During this time, Sayu can control the direction of her roll, and can use the skill again to end her Windwheel state early and unleash a stronger version of the Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick.
The Hold version of this skill can trigger Elemental Absorption.

This skill has a maximum duration of 10s and enters CD once its effects end.
The longer Sayu remains in her Windwheel state, the longer the CD.

If Sayu comes into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro while in her Windwheel state, she will deal additional elemental DMG of that type.
Elemental Absorption may only occur once per use of this skill.

Like with talents, only one element can be absorbed per use. Enemies with access to elemental absorption include:

Common Enemies

Normal Bosses

Event Bosses

Elemental Sources

All characters, enemies, or objects affected by an elemental status can serve as sources of Elemental Absorption. This also includes self-applied elemental statuses. In Co-Op Mode, elements that teammates are affected with can also be absorbed. Most character elemental abilities do not serve as sources of Elemental Absorption, with the only exception being Guoba Attack where Guoba himself is infused with Pyro when he spits fire.

The absorbed element can be used to further trigger elemental reactions, including Swirl. The number of times absorbed elements are applied will depend on the respective talent's Internal Cooldown.

  • For example, one can use Venti's burst Wind's Grand Ode to absorb Pyro and then apply Hydro attacks to proc Vaporize reactions.

Absorption Priority

In cases where more than one element can be absorbed there seems to be a priority.[1]

For the Anemo Traveler, the priority is:

For other Anemo characters, the priority is:
