How to Beat Electro Hypostasis

Electro Hypostasis Video Walkthrough

Defense Cubes

How to Beat - Electro Hypostasis 1.png
Since the Electro Hypostasis is invulnerable when the cubes are surrounding its body, it is best that you keep your distance and wait for an opportunity to attack.

Chance to Attack

How to Beat - Electro Hypostasis 2.png
The Electro Hypostasis will only be vulnerable after it attacks. It is recommended that you try to memorize all of its attacks patterns to learn when you can play aggressively to maximize your damage output when the Electro Hypostasis is vulnerable.

Defeating Electro Hypostasis

How to Beat - Electro Hypostasis 3.png
You can only defeat the Electro Hypostasis once you have destroyed all of the prisms that it summons at low health. Failing to destroy these prisms will heal up the Electro Hypostasis.

Using Normal Attacks

Normal attacks will not work against these prisms, it is necessary to save up your skills once the Electro Hypostasis is below 15% health.

Recommended Party

Playing Defensive

While avoiding the Electro Hypostasis' attacks, try to use Noelle and cast a shield on yourself to increase your defense during the fight.

Dealing Damage

Once the Electro Hypostasis is vulnerable to your attacks, try to use Kaeya's ability to inflict Superconduct. This will drastically increase your damage output, especially when paired with Xiangling.

Breaking the Prism

When the Electro Hypostasis summons the 3 prism crystals, immediately destroy them by switching between your characters as soon as their ability goes off cooldown.

Repeated Runs

Elemental Reaction

Characters that can continuously generate elemental reactions are best suited for this fight because of the prism's ability to negate damage from normal attacks.

Multiple Hits

Diluc and Qiqi's ability can hit the Electro Hypostasis multiple times, this will slightly extend the time Electro Hypostasis is vulnerable.

Attack Patterns

Pattern 1

Electro Hypostasis 1.gif
When the cubes form the shape of a fist, immediately dash and move away from its attack range to avoid taking damage. This attack is sometimes followed-up by 2 more attack forms which are the scissor attack and the hand slam.

Pattern 2

Electro Hypostasis 2.gif
This attack can easily be avoided by continuously walking or dashing away from its target.

Pattern 3

Electro Hypostasis 3.gif
You can avoid this attack by walking or running in a counter-clockwise direction. However, since the Electro Hypostasis is also vulnerable during this attack, you can also use this opportunity to dish out some damage before moving away to dodge the cubes returning to the Electro Hypostasis.

Pattern 4

Electro Hypostasis 4.gif
Avoid this attack by moving clockwise as the Electro Hypostasis spins slowly. The cubes on the ground will grow larger as the attack finishes but it can be avoided by dashing in the opposite direction.

Pattern 5

Since the range of the attack can be seen on the ground, you can easily avoid this by moving out of the purple circle.

>>4 You have to be using the elemental ability attack (E or Q on PC), not the normal attack with weapon. Even if you're a mage type, you cannot damage them with normal attack.
