Hydro is one of the seven Elements.

Fontaine is the domain of the Hydro Archon.

Elemental Resonance

Having two Hydro characters in the group results in the Elemental Resonance:

  • Soothing Water: Affected by Pyro for 40% less time. Increases incoming healing by 30%.

Elemental Reactions

A character affected by Hydro, i.e. Wet.

Hydro has the following Elemental Reactions:

  • Electro Electro-Charged: Deals Electro DMG over time and interrupts any action. If there are nearby Wet targets, they also get the Electro-Charged elemental reaction. Electro-Charged deals 2 instances of damage.
  • Cryo Frozen: Freezes the target. If the frozen target is hit by a Claymore, a Plunge Attack, or Geo DMG, it will cause Shattered. Shattering a frozen target will deal additional Physical DMG.
  • Pyro Vaporize: Deals ×2 Hydro DMG when a Hydro attack triggers the reaction.
  • Anemo Swirl: Infuses and deals Hydro damage while spreading the effect to nearby enemies.
  • Geo Crystallize: Creates a Hydro shield.

Wet Status

You get Wet during rain and also if you come in contact with water bodies. Wet itself does not have any other effects; it is considered simply as the application of Hydro.

Certain characters have Talents that apply the Wet status to the character.
