Overview

Zhongli (Chinese: 钟离 Zhōnglí) is a playable Geo character in Genshin Impact.

He first appears in the Archon Quests Chapter I: Act II - Farewell, the Archaic Lord. He is later revealed to be the current vessel of the Geo Archon, Morax, who has decided to experience the world from the perspective of a mortal. After giving up his Gnosis, he retires from his position as an Archon and returns to his former identity as an Adeptus, although still under the guise of being a human. He currently works as a consultant of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor.

Talent Dominus Lapidis.pngDominus LapidisElemental Skill
Every mountain, rock and inch of land is filled with the power of Geo, but those who can wield such powers freely are few and far between.

Press
Commands the power of earth to create a Stone Stele.

Hold
Causes nearby Geo energy to explode, causing the following effects:
  • If their maximum number hasn't been reached, creates a Stone Stele.
  • Creates a shield of jade. The shield's DMG Absorption scales based on Zhongli's Max HP.
  • Deals AoE Geo DMG.
  • If there are nearby targets with the Geo element, it will drain a large amount of Geo element from a maximum of 2 such targets. This effect does not cause DMG.

Stone Stele
When created, deals AoE Geo DMG.
Additionally, it will intermittently resonate with other nearby Geo constructs, dealing Geo DMG to surrounding opponents.
The Stone Stele is considered a Geo construct that can both be climbed and used to block attacks.
Only one Stele created by Zhongli himself may initially exist at any one time.

Jade Shield
Possesses 150% DMG Absorption against all Elemental and Physical DMG.
Characters protected by the Jade Shield will decrease the Elemental RES and Physical RES of opponents in a small AoE by 20%. This effect cannot be stacked.

  • While holding the Elemental Skill, Zhongli's Interruption Resistance is greatly increased.[5]
  • Stele creation and Resonance generate 0.5 elemental particles when they hit at least 1 enemy.
    • All simultaneous resonance are counted together for the energy generation. If multiple simultaneous resonances hit a single enemy within a very short timespan, it will have a 50% chance to generate 1 elemental particle in total. It has to hit multiple enemies for a chance to generate more elemental particles.
  • Multiple nearby Stone Steles will resonate with each other. However, other Geo Constructs can take resonance from multiple nearby Stone Steles.
    • The Stone Stele's horizontal resonance range (the radius) with other Geo Constructs is about twice the size of the Stele's AoE Geo DMG pulse range. The resonance range is also slightly less than the range of Albedo's Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma. The vertical resonance range is about 50% of the Stele's height counted from the bottom to the top of the Stele.
    • The Stele will scan for new nearby Geo Constructs just before the resonance tick.
  • A maximum of 3 Geo Constructs is allowed on the field between all players. If another player places a Geo construct after the limit has been reached, the oldest Geo construct will be replaced first.
    • Geo Constructs created from Wake of Earth do not contribute to this cap.
  • Zhongli's first Passive Talent, Resonant Waves, fortifies characters shielded by the Jade Shield whenever it takes damage. Fortified characters gain 5% increased Shield Strength. This effect stacks up to 5 times, and lasts until the Jade Shield disappears.
  • Zhongli's second Passive Talent, Dominance of Earth, increases Stone Stele, resonance, and hold DMG by 1.9% of his Max HP.
  • With Zhonglis's Constellation 1, Rock, the Backbone of Earth, the number of Stone Steles that can exist simultaneously is increased to 2. If the limit has been reached, pressing the skill's replaces the older Stone Stele first.
  • With Zhongli's Constellation 3, Jade, Shimmering through Darkness, the Level of Dominus Lapidis' is increased by 3.
  • With Zhongli's Constellation 6, Chrysos, Bounty of Dominator, whenever the Jade Shield takes DMG, 40% of that incoming DMG is converted to HP for the current character. A single instance of regeneration cannot exceed 8% of the current character's Max HP.

When the Jade Shield takes DMG, it will Fortify:
  • Fortified characters have 5% increased Shield Strength.
    Can stack up to 5 times, and lasts until the Jade Shield disappears.
Talent Dominance of Earth.pngDominance of Earth4th Ascension Passive
Zhongli deals bonus DMG based on his Max HP:

With this passive, the base outgoing damage is calculated using the following formula:

Where:

  • is the subject's total ATK value (including ATK and % ATK Bonuses), given by , where
    • is the base attack of the subject. (This is the sum of the character's innate level-dependent ATK and their weapon's ATK.)
    • is the sum of all percentage attack bonuses the subject has.
    • is the sum of all flat attack bonuses (excluding base attack) the subject has.
  • is the ability's damage percentage. (This is listed in the Talents screen for combat talents and in the Weapon Effects screen for weapon abilities.)
  • is the sum of all Damage Bonuses applicable to the attack.
  • is the subject's maximum health.
  • is the multiplier corresponding to the used ability, that is, 0.0139 for Rain of Stone, 0.019 for Dominus Lapidis, and 0.33 for Planet Befall.

This value is then multiplied by other coefficients, including crit and target defense. For more information, see Damage#Outgoing Damage.
