Spread Elements to Nearby Enemies

Genshin Impact - Palm Vortex
Elemental Skill: Palm Vortex

The Anemo Traveler's Elemental Skill, Palm Vortex, can be used to not only pull enemies in but to also spread any elemental auras or applications to near by enemies. This is usefull for setting up large chains of Swirl and other Elemental Reactions.

Elemental Burst Can Deal AoE DMG

Genshin - Elemental Skill-Gust Surge
Elemental Skill: Gust Surge

The Elemental Burst, Gust Surge, summons a tornado acts similar to Palm Vortex in spreading elemental effects but will also pick up and carry off smaller enemies. Like all Anemo Element skills the tornado can also absorb other elements and deal additional elemental damage.

Constellation 6 Can Reduce Elemental RES

Their sixth constellation gives the Traveler's Elemental Burst another skill. It can lessen their enemies' Anemo RES by 20% and if their burst also absorbed an element then it will have an additional 20% Elemental RES effect.

Combine Skills With Cryo to Cross Water

Genshin - Anemo and Cryo
Crossing Water with Anemo and Cryo

The ability of the Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst to spread elements does not work only on enemies. When a Cryo character freezes water with their Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst, the Anemo Traveler can switch in and use their own Skill or Burst to spread the ice further along the surface of the water.

Better as a Sub-DPS or Support

Genshin - Traveler (Anemo) Better As Sub-DPS or Support
Elemental Skill and Burst for Crowd Control

We don't recommend using the Anemo Traveler as your Main DPS, because other characters can deal more damage overall. Instead, use the Anemo Traveler's Elemental Skill and Burst for great crowd control!
