How to Use Diluc

Elemental Skill Interrupts Enemies

Genshin - Diluc Elemental Skill - Searing Onslaught
Elemental Skill: Searing Onslaught

Diluc's Elemental Skill, Searing Onslaught, has the power to interrupt enemies with each of its hits. This can be used strategically to stop certain enemies from moving or using certain skills.

Smash Through Shields

Genshin - Diluc - Destroy Shields

Being a claymore user, Diluc can tear through shields with ease. Being a Pyro character offers Diluc even more utility against shields having very strong elemental reactions with non-pyro element shields.

Tear Through Enemies with Elemental Burst

Diluc Elemental Burst

Diluc's Elemental Burst, Dawn, summons a flaming phoenix towards enemies dealing AoE Pyro DMG. It also imbues Diluc's claymore with Pyro, giving you a lot of opportunities to dish out Elemental Reactions.
