In the world of Teyvat — where the seven elements flow and converge — anyone can be blessed with power from one of the Archons.

Elements and Archons

The Archons bestow some of their elemental power to mortals in the form of Visions. Visions are similar in appearance to glass pendant orbs, they allow the wielders to focus their mental energy so that they can use the elemental powers of the Archon that blessed them. Once given this power, the wielders are called "Allogenes".

There are seven powers that exist to discover in Teyvat, each with their respective Archons and their own region/city that worships said Archon.

Status Effects

Simply coming in contact with elements will cause the character, enemy, or object to be afflicted with an elemental status effect, some of which cause a debuff.

Element Effect
Cryo Reduces the target's movement speed.
Electro Afflicting bodies of water with Electro will spread the status to nearby targets in the water and will usually cause the Electro-Charged elemental reaction since they are already Wet.
Hydro Causes target to become Wet, used for elemental reactions.
Pyro Causes small burning DoT (~3 damage per sec).

Ley Line Disorders

The Hydro special effect, Slowing Water

Within the Spiral Abyss and certain Abyssal Domains, monsters or objects may have an aura that causes a harmful effect upon characters in its AoE.

  • The effect can be momentarily dispelled by intentionally causing elemental reactions on the character. For example, abilities like Barbara's Let the Show Begin and Xingqiu's Guhua Sword - Fatal Rainscreen can apply the Hydro effect on the character.
  • The aura will only affect the characters currently on the field.
Name Element Effects
Engulfing Storm Electro Continuously drains Energy Recharge.
Slowing Water Hydro Increases skill CD durations (-80% Reduce CD).
Smoldering Flames Pyro Continuously inflicts damage over time.
Condensed Ice Cryo Increases stamina consumption.

Elemental Reactions

[1]

Applying certain combinations of elemental effects on a target (monster and player) will trigger an elemental reaction.

Name Element Effects
Burning Dendro + Pyro Deals Pyro DMG over time.
Crystallize Geo + Cryo Electro Hydro Pyro Absorbs some of the target's elemental energy and drops a crystal that can give a character an elemental shield if they touch the crystal. The shield will absorb all types of damage, but it protects against the shield's element more effectively than other types of damage.
Electro-Charged Electro + Hydro Deals Electro DMG over time.
Frozen Cryo + Hydro Freezes the target.
Melt Cryo + Pyro Attack will deal x2 damage if Pyro is the triggering element or x1.5 damage if Cryo is the triggering element.
Overloaded Electro + Pyro Deals AoE Pyro DMG.
Superconduct Cryo + Electro Deals AoE Cryo DMG and reduces the target's Defense.
Swirl Pyro + Cryo Electro Hydro Pyro Deals extra elemental damage and spreads the effect.
Vaporize Hydro + Pyro Attack will deal x2 damage if Hydro is the triggering element or x1.5 damage if Pyro is the triggering element.

Elemental Resonance

[2]

When there are certain combinations of elemental characters in the party the whole party will receive a bonus. These bonuses stack and apply in Co-Op Mode.

Name Element Effects
Enduring Rock Geo Geo Increases resistance to interruption. When protected by a shield, increases Attack DMG by 15%.
Fervent Flames Pyro Pyro Affected by Cryo for 40% less time. Increases ATK by 25%.
Soothing Water Hydro Hydro Affected by Pyro for 40% less time. Increases incoming healing by 30%.
Impetuous Winds Pyro Pyro Decreases Stamina Consumption by 15%. Increases Movement SPD by 10%. Shortens Skill CD by 5%.
High Voltage Electro Electro Affected by Hydro for 40% less time. Superconduct, Overloaded, and Electro-Charged have a 100% chance to generate an Electro Elemental Particle (CD: 5s).
Shattering Ice Cryo Cryo Affected by Electro for 40% less time. Increases CRIT Rate against enemies that are Frozen or affected by Cryo by 15%.
Protective Canopy Any 4 Unique Elements All Elemental RES by 15%.

Restrictions

  • When using Co-op mode, if part of the party is in an Abyssal Domain the resonance will be determined by the characters that are in the domain and only characters in the domain will benefit from the bonuses.
  • Demo characters that are available during Character Story Quests do not affect the resonance.

Trivia

  • A spring fairy in the book Heart of Clear Springs (II) tells the tales of a faraway realm of Hydro, meaning that each element has its own realm.
