Energy is the resource used to execute Elemental Burst attacks. The amount of energy required for Elemental Bursts varies from character to character, and can be checked in-game via the Skill Attributes section of the character's talents menu.

Energy is recharged by picking up elemental particles (for a small amount of energy) and elemental orbs (for a larger amount of energy). Additionally, basic attacks recharge energy at a small rate, while some artifacts and weapons can also regenerate energy directly when their activation conditions are met. Keep in mind, however, that some of them only regenerate energy for certain party members. Some character talents are also capable of regenerating energy for the character.

When a character is K.O'd, they will lose all their energy.

Overview

Picking up elemental particles and orbs regenerates energy for the entire party. Both orbs and particles only give energy once they reach a character, creating some delay between generating an orb or particle and receiving its energy. As a result, it is possible to switch the active character while the orbs or particles are still traveling so that character can recover more energy.

Elemental particles will restore energy to characters that share their elemental alignment — indicated by the particle's color — at a greater rate, and to other characters at a lesser rate. For example, Kaeya would gain more energy from Cryo elemental particles than he would from Pyro elemental particles.

Elemental particles are dropped by enemies as they take damage and when they are defeated, as well as by inflicting damage using an Elemental Skill.

The particles dropped by damaging enemies occur at certain health thresholds. Smaller enemies like Hilichurls drop a particle at 50% HP and upon defeat. Larger enemies like Mitachurls drop a particle at 75%, 50%, and 25% HP, and upon defeat. Depending on the type of enemy, these particles may or may not be elementally charged (slimes, for instance, always give an elemental particle according to their element).

Damaging enemies with an Elemental Skill usually generates some elemental particles. Particles gained from using Elemental Skills will have the respective skill's element, although certain Elemental Skills, such as Noelle's and Barbara's, will not generate any elemental particles.

For example, Xingqiu's Guhua Sword: Fatal Rainscreen generates 5 Hydro elemental particles. When the particles are absorbed:

  • An active Hydro character (such as Xingqiu himself) recovers 15 energy (5×3);
  • An inactive Hydro character (in a 4-character party) recovers 9 energy (5×1.8);
  • An active, non-Hydro character recovers 5 energy (5×1);
  • An inactive, non-Hydro character (in a 4-character party) recovers 3 energy (5×0.6).

There are also some weapons that can generate elemental particles, and the Elemental Resonance High Voltage will generate an elemental particle on a 5-second cooldown if the Superconduct, Overloaded, or Electro-Charged elemental reactions are inflicted on an enemy.

Some Artifacts such as a full The Exile set generate particles without requiring to strike or damage a foe — this energy generation does not benefit from Energy Recharge effects. Some weapon passives, such as that from Prototype Amber also can generate energy in the same way.

Energy Recharge Rates

Character Particle Orb
Same Element Non-Elemental Different Element Same Element Non-Elemental Different Element
On field 3 2 1 9 6 3
Off field (4 characters in the party) 1.8 1.2 0.6 5.4 3.6 1.8

Your "on field" character is the character currently being used, while "off field" characters are in your active party but are not being used.

  • The number of characters in the party affects the Recharge Rate of off field characters.[1]
    • For 2 / 3 / 4 characters in the party, the Recharge Rate of off field characters is 80% / 70% / 60% of the Recharge Rate of on field characters.
  • In Co-op mode, the number is determined by characters in your party (characters you can control).
    • For 2 Players, the host is considered that he has 2 characters in his party, and the Recharge Rate of off field characters is 80% of the Recharge Rate of on field characters.

Particles Generated by Enemy Drops

When a enemy HP decreases below a threshold, it will drop particle(s) or orb(s).

Some enemies may only have one threshold (mostly 0% of max HP), while some enemies may have 4 thresholds (such as 75%, 50%, 25% and 0% of max HP).

Note: Some enemies will drop more than one particle when their HP are below thresholds, but it seems like they only drop one particle in the screen. Maybe the system merges particles into one particle in visual effects.

For some enemies, particle(s) or orb(s) come from skills of enemies.

Notes

  • The scaling of Energy on the in-game 'energy ball' depends on the energy consumption of a character's Burst skill with the full ball corresponding to enough energy for a burst. Thus a full 'ball' can correspond to between 40 and 80 energy.
