Kaeya's Elemental Burst - Glacial Waltz
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.
Elemental Burst skills need Energy to be used. Energy is gathered by attacking and gathering Elemental Particles from either 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!
Each character has an Energy Cost listed on the skill attributes of their talents. The energy cost can range from 40, 60, 80 to 90 depending on the character! The higher the energy cost, the harder it is to bring their Elemental Burst back up.
After use, there is a skill cooldown that triggers before the Elemental Burst can be used again.
While the Cooldown cannot be removed, even if you switch characters, there are ways to lower the Cooldown of a character's Elemental Burst, such as having two or more Anemo Characters in your party and activating Anemo Resonance.
You can check the amount of time the Skill needs to Cooldown through a character's talent. It is listed as CD which stands for Cooldown. The shorter it is, the faster you can use it again once the energy full!
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.
