How to Use Diluc

Take out enemies with shields and shells easily

Diluc Elemental Skill

Enemies with protective shields and shells can cause trouble for many characters, but Diluc's attacks are able to lay waste to these otherwise substantial threats. His Elemental Skill “Searing Onslaught” allows him to hit three times consecutively with the Pyro Element, destroying wooden shields and shells made of ice cleanly and leaving enemies vulnerable.

Enemies with shields made of rock and other hard objects can be handled with his claymore instead. Even in cases where his element doesn't provide direct benefit, Diluc can hold his own, making him a ruthless fighter fit for almost any foe.

Knock down foes and pummel them one-sidedly

Diluc Normal Attack

Diluc's greatest asset is his ability to knock down foes with his claymore, and then use his held attack to execute repeated attacks while preventing the enemy from hitting back. Against standard enemies, a slash with his claymore can even cancel most regular attacks. Countering attacks in this way does drain Diluc's stamina, although there will still be enough remaining to execute his held attack.

To conserve stamina, the best way to handle opponents is to wait for them to become vulnerable, then take the opportunity to knock them down, then slash repeatedly with the held attack. That saiid, keep in mind that larger bosses cannot be knocked down with the claymore, so you'll have to be more cautious in these fights and will need to adjust your strategy accordingly.

Wide-ranged Elemental Burst is effective for Time Trials

Diluc Elemental Burst

Diluc's Elemental Burst covers a huge swath of land in flames for a massive attack. When up against a Time Trial where you must defeat several foes within a limited time frame, this attack can change the game in a single blow. Time Trials can appear frequently in Daily Quests, so this ability can be used regularly to handle these challenges when they appear.
