How to Beat Oceanid

Oceanid Video Walkthrough

Defeating the Hydro Mimics

Genshin - Oceanid - Hydro Mimics

Unlike the Primo Geovishap and the Pyro and Cryo Regisvines, the Oceanid cannot be attacked directly.

Instead, it will summon a series of enemies that you have to defeat in order to deal damage to the Oceanid

Sinking Platforms

How to Beat - Oceanid 2.jpg
Every time you defeat 2 batches of Oceanid's water monsters, the Oceanid will sink 2 of the platforms that you are standing on to limit your movement. Make sure that you position yourself carefully since it will be a lot more difficult to move around especially in the last phase.

Focusing One Enemy

How to Beat - Oceanid 3.jpg
The water monsters that the Oceanid summons will gradually heal itself over time. It is highly recommended that you only focus on defeating them one by one instead of dealing damage to all of them at once.

Water Bomb

How to Beat - Oceanid 4.jpg
If you take too much time in defeating the water monsters that the Oceanid summons, the Oceanid uses a powerful attack that cannot be avoided even if you run.

This can take out your party members quick, which is why it's important to defeat enemy spawns quickly, or use shields and healing to keep your characters safe.

Freeze with Kaeya

When it comes to the best Free to Play character option to use against the Oceanid, Kaeya stands out becuase of his ability to freeze enemies in place during the fight.

His Elemental Skill can create quick Freeze reactions, while his Elemental burst is very useful against mobs. You can also set up Melt and Superconduct reactions, both of which deal high damage.

Vaporize and Electro-Charged

Xiangling and Lisa are also very effective against the Oceanid thanks to their Vaporize and Electro-Charged Reactions, respectively.

Using them in tandem with Kaeya helps them deal even more damage, making quick work of Hydro Mimics in the process.

Shields help protect you from AoE Attacks

Using Noelle against the Oceanid not only provides you with shields that protect you against devastating

Repeated Runs Option

Here's a quick overview on the best characters to use when fighting the Oceanid.

Cryo Resonance is Key

Having Cryo Resonance in your party will help make this fight easier. The 15% increased CRIT Rate against enemies frozen or affected by Cryo enables you to deal more damage to each Hydro Mimic.

Having two Cryo characters also provide more opportunities to freeze multiple enemies in place, providing you more opportunities to attack.

Electro Resonance

Along with Cryo Resonance, having Electro Resonance in your party is also helpful, as you get 40% Hydro RES, protecting you against Hydro Mimic attacks.

Creating Superconduct, Overloaded, and Electro-Charged reactions will also generate additional Electro Elemental Particles, helping you charge up your Elemental Bursts quickly.

Vaporize and Melt Combo

Pyro Resonance is another effective combination against the Oceanid. Vaporize is a reaction that deals high DMG, and combining with Cryo creates Melt, another strong reaction.

Attack Patterns

Hydro Mimic Finch

Genshin - Hydro Mimic - Finch

The Hydro Mimic Finch attacks by jumping on you, dealing AoE damage in a large area. Prevent them from attacking by freezing them, or use shields while dealing damage.

Hydro Mimic Mallard

Genshin - Oceanid - Hydro Mimics

The Mallards have a Hydro AoE surrounding them, which means attacking them up-close is not a good option. Use ranged attacks from a Bow or Catayst user to deal damage from a distance.

Hydro Mimic Boar

Genshin - Hydro Mimic - Boar

These boars will attack by charging at you, which can knock you down and even put you in the water. Dodge their attacks and find an opening to counter them with your own attacks and abilities

Hydro Mimic Ferret

Genshin - Hydro Mimic - Ferret

These Ferrets have a wide range attack using their tails that deal Hydro DMG. Keep your distance as they attack, and close in with your own set of attacks.

Hydro Mimic Crane

Genshin - Hydro Mimic - Crane

Hydro Mimic Cranes are slow moving enemies that deal long range attacks. They flap their wings before each attack, which is a signal for you to dodge them.

Be sure to attack them early, as their ranged attacks deal high DMG if you're not careful.

Hydro Mimic Frog

Genshin - Hydro Mimic - Frog

Hydro Mimic Frogs have two types of attacks: a long-range attack similar to the Crane, and a jumping AoE attack like the Finch. Focus on attacking them when they spawn, as they are very difficult to deal with, especially with multiple enemies present.

Hydro Mimic Raptor

Genshin - Hydro Mimic - Raptor

These flying enemies are very challenging to fight against, since you need a Bow or Catalyst user to attack them constantly. They have a dive attack that can knock you down as well, which is important to dodge or shield against.

Hydro Mimic Crab

Genshin - Hydro Mimic - Crab

Crabs are fast moving enemies that have a bubble attack that deals high damage when they get close. Freezing them using Cryo or shocking them using Electro can help you slow them down.
