Best Elemental Resonance Combos

Hydro + Geo

Hydro + Geo

Geo focuses on Defense and they also have healing capabilities. Parnter this with hydro and their bonus healing and you'll have the sturdiest guys n' gals around.

Pyro + Anemo

Pyro + Anemo

Pyro + Anemo really increases the DPS of your party. the increased mobility and reduced cooldown partnered by the bonus attacks you get from Pyro ensures a non-stop assault against the enemies.

Hydro + Electro

Hydro + Elecctro

Hydro + Electro uses the hydro's ability to apply the wet status to enemies while electro generates a bunch of element particles from the enemies. 2 hydros aren't really needed for this combo, just 2 Electro and 1 hydro character would suffice.

Pyro + Geo

Pyro + Geo

The geo's ability to apply a shield ensures they get the +15% bonus attack damage. Couple this with the pyro's flat 25% bonus damage turns your team to a killing machine.

4 Unique Elements

On paper, this looks like a bad option but it actually works due to the uniqueness of each character in the game. There are several synergies you can make with each character's abilties that makes taking use of the Elemental Resonance chart useless.
