How to Use Razor

Manage Electro Particles from his Elemental Skill

Razor Tap vs Hold Elemental Skill
Elemental Skill: Claw and Thunder

Razor's Elemental Skill, Claw and Thunder, generates Electro particles that will boost his Energy Recharge or recover energy depending on it being pressed or held.

Claw and Thunder (Tap)

Tapping Razor's elemental skill will create a small sigil that increases his Elemental Recharge by 20%. Razor can have up to a total of 3 active orbs at any time. Razor's fourth constellation gives a huge boost in damage by reducing enemy DEF by 15%.

Claw and Thunder (Hold)

The charged version of Razor's Elemental Skill will deal damage and consume all active sigils for a total of 5 energy each. This is important for maintaining uptime on Razor's Elemental Burst which drastically increases his overall DPS.

Elemental Burst Ends with Switching Characters

Genshin - Razor Elemental Burst - Lightning Fang
Elemental Burst: Lightning Fang

Lightning Fang summons Razor's inner wolf and drastically boosts his attack speed, Electro and Interruption RES and supplements his Physical Attacks with Electro DMG. While this provides a massive DPS increase, it will immediately end if you change characters and the Wolf Within will vanish.

Only Suited for Main DPS

Razor's Talents and Constellations are centered solely on improving his damage and offer no benefits to him as a sub DPS or Support. If you decide to build Razor then he will only be effective as the party Main DPS.
