Talent Guhua Sword: Fatal Rainscreen.pngGuhua Sword: Fatal RainscreenElemental Skill
Xingqiu performs twin strikes with his sword, dealing Hydro DMG. At the same time, this ability creates the maximum number of Rain Swords, which will orbit your active character.
The Rain Swords have the following properties:

20% of Xingqiu's Hydro DMG Bonus will be converted to additional DMG Reduction for the Rain Swords.

The maximum amount of additional DMG Reduction that can be gained this way is 24%.
The initial maximum number of Rain Swords is 3.
Using this ability applies the Wet status onto the character.

  • When this skill hits at least one enemy, it generates 5 Elemental Particles.
  • The damage reduction of each Rain Sword instance can be broken down as follows: (20% base) + (up to 9% from talent levels) + (up to 24% as a portion of bonus Hydro DMG), leading to a max of 53% damage reduced.
    • The additional DMG Reduction from Hydro DMG Bonus will snapshot Xingqiu's stats on cast and will not be affected by changes in Xingqiu's stats that occur afterwards.[8]
  • The initial skill activation applies Wet to Xingqiu for ~0.3s and wears off by the time the attack animation finishes.
  • Every 2.25 seconds, orbiting Rain Swords will apply Wet to any enemies or objects that are in contact with your active character.[9] (This does not apply Hydro to your active character.) The Hydro application does not deal damage but counts as a hit, so bushes can be cleared with 2 hits from the orbiting Rain Swords as if they were any other attack, and the Unusual Hilichurl will become aggravated upon the application of Hydro from orbiting Rain Swords. This can deal damage through reactions such as Swirl and Electro-Charged[10]
  • Rain Swords reduce damage but are not considered a Shield.
  • Rain Swords can be broken by damageless instances of knockback, such as Childe's Blast ability and Bennett's Charge Level 2 Passion Overload.
  • The shattering of Rain swords on his Elemental Skill has a cooldown of 1.5 seconds before another rain sword can be shattered.[11]
  • Xingqiu's Passive Talent 2, Hydropathic, affects Guhua Sword: Fatal Rainscreen as follows: "When a Rain Sword is shattered or when its duration expires, it regenerates the current character's HP based on 6% of Xingqiu's Max HP."
    • With cooldown reduction or cooldown reset effects (such as with Sacrificial Sword), reusing the skill will prolong existing Rain Swords back to 15 seconds. This will not activate Hydropathic's healing effect, since the old Rain Swords did not shatter or expire.

Talent Guhua Sword: Raincutter.pngGuhua Sword: RaincutterElemental Burst
Initiate Rainbow Bladework and fight using an illusory sword rain, while creating the maximum number of Rain Swords.

Rainbow Bladework
  • Your active character's Normal Attacks will trigger consecutive sword rain attacks, dealing Hydro DMG.
  • Rain Swords will remain at the maximum number throughout the ability's duration.
  • The sword rain attacks activate only when characters use their Normal Attack.
    • Characters that use Swords or Polearms always perform a single Normal Attack before performing their Charged Attack, and that Normal Attack can also trigger the sword rain attacks.
  • Rain Sword effects carry over from Xingqiu's Elemental Skill, Guhua Sword: Fatal Rainscreen. Increased resistance to interruption, damage reduction, and application of Wet status to enemies still apply.
    • During this skill's duration, the maximum number of Rain Swords is maintained and the swords cannot be shattered or expire before the duration ends.
      • Swords created with Guhua Sword: Fatal Rainscreen before or after this skill's activation will not expire during this skill's duration.
    • Xingqiu's 1st Ascension Passive Talent, Hydropathic, will not activate when the active character is hit, as it only activates when a Rain Sword is shattered. However, the Rain Swords shatter at the end of this talent's duration, so the passive will activate then. It will heal for the full amount of Rain Swords that were present (either 3 or 4, depending on whether Xingqiu's first Constellation, The Scent Remained, is active).
  • Rainbow Bladework generally hits only one target at a time but may hit multiple targets if they are very close together.
  • If the triggering Normal Attack hits multiple targets, Rainbow Bladework will aim at the closest or the first target hit.
  • Rainbow Bladework will still activate even if the triggering Normal Attack does not hit anything.
  • Rainbow Bladework's targeting range is large and may hit enemies out of range of the Normal Attacks of bow and catalyst characters.
  • Rainbow Bladework's attacks have a short cooldown (exactly 1 second or 60 frames, including frames during hitlag) before they can be triggered again.
  • Rainbow Bladework's Sword Rain DMG does not snapshot and will be affected by changes in Xingqiu's stats after Guhua Sword: Raincutter is cast.
  • Xingqiu's Passive Talent 1, Hydropathic, affects Guhua Sword: Raincutter as follows: "When a Rain Sword is shattered or when its duration expires, it regenerates the current character's HP based on 6% of Xingqiu's Max HP." (Also applies to Guhua Sword: Fatal Rainscreen.)
Constellation Effects
  • Constellation Level 1, The Scent Remained: "Increases the maximum number of Rain Swords by 1." (Also applies to Guhua Sword: Fatal Rainscreen.)
  • Constellation Level 2, Rainbow Upon the Azure Sky: "Extends the duration of Guhua Sword: Raincutter by 3s. Decreases the Hydro RES of opponents hit by sword rain attacks by 15% for 4s."
  • Constellation Level 3, Weaver of Verses: Increases this talent's level by 3 and raises its maximum level to 15.
  • Constellation Level 4, Evilsoother: "Throughout the duration of Guhua Sword: Raincutter, the DMG dealt by Guhua Sword: Fatal Rainscreen is increased by 50%."
  • Constellation Level 6, Hence, Call Them My Own Verses: "Activating 2 of Guhua Sword: Raincutter's sword rain attacks greatly enhances the third sword rain attack. On hit, the third sword rain attack also regenerates 3 Energy for Xingqiu."
    • Before unlocking this constellation, sword rain alternates between firing 2 swords and 3 swords. After unlocking this constellation, the order is 2 swords → 3 swords → 5 swords. For a damage comparison:
      • Without any Constellations, this skill at Talent Level 10 has a scaling of 97.7% per sword. If every sword hits, there are 37 instances of Rain Sword DMG, resulting in a total scaling of 3614.9%.
      • At Constellation Lv. 6, this skill at Talent Level 13 has a scaling of 115% per sword. If every sword hits, there are 60 instances of Rain Sword DMG, resulting in a total scaling of 6900%.
