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. Using Amber's Charged up attack works best and will allow you to kill Electro Hypostasis in one go.

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 when the circle below disappears.

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

Electro Hypostasis 5.gif

The Electro Hypostasis will summon pillars to trap you, the spaces between each pillar will be impassable while the pillars are up. You will need to escape out of the circle before it surrounds you completely. If you manage to escape, the Electro Hypostasis will be vulnerable to attacks for a period of time.

If you're not able to escape, you will need to dodge the attacks. The range of the attack can be seen on the ground making them easy to avoid. You can wait for the attack to expire or break one of the pillars to end it quicker.

>>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.
