Things to know about Elemental Burst

Elemental Burst is a Special Skill

Genshin - Elemental Burst Skill

Elemental Burst is a powerful talent that Genshin Impact characters can use in combat. This is considered as the characters strongest ability, providing huge benefit to their party.

These abilities can deal high damage, against multiple enemies, provide healing, or apply different effects.

Each character's Elemental Burst is different, so try out as many as you can, and see how you can combine them during combat.

Elemental Bursts Need to be Charged

Elemental Burst skills take time to charge. Energy is gathered by attacking and gathering Elemental Particles from defeated enemies, or after using Elemental Skills in order to fill the gauge.

Having high Energy Recharge on your character helps charge up your Elemental Bursts much faster. There are also weapons and Talents that also help you generate more Elemental Particles, so use them to your advantage!

Elemental Bursts have a Skill Cooldown

After use, there is a skill cooldown that triggers before the Elemental Burst can be used again. Cooldown cannot be removed even if you switch characters, so it's best to switch party members and take turns using Elemental Bursts during a fight.

How to Use Elemental Burst

Elemental burst can be used by pressing the icon once the skill is fully charged. Smartphone users can simply tap the icon on their screen, while PC users can press the Q key and PS4 players can press the △ button.
