Hydro is one of the seven Elements.

Its associated Archon is the God of Justice, whose domain is Fontaine.

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

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 crystal that when collected turns into a Hydro shield.

Wet Status

Wet itself does not have any special effects; it is simply considered the application of Hydro. However, being affected by Wet allows Hydro Elemental Reactions to occur.

Any source of Hydro DMG will apply Wet. It will also be applied during rain and upon coming in contact with bodies of water.

The following Talents apply the Wet status to its user and/or the active character. 4 Talents match the category selection:
