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 and high Poise Damage over time to all nearby targets with the Wet status.
  • Cryo Frozen: Immobilizes the target. Hitting a Frozen target with a Blunt Attack will cause Shattered, dealing Physical DMG.
  • Pyro Vaporize: Deals ×2 Hydro DMG when a Hydro attack triggers the reaction.
  • Anemo Swirl: Deals Non-AoE Hydro DMG while spreading the Wet status to nearby enemies.
  • Geo Crystallize: Creates a Hydro shard. Picking it up creates a Hydro shield around the character.

The elemental reaction Bloom is expected to come with the Version 3.0 update, after the release of Sumeru.[1]

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.

Wet Status to Self

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