Things to know about Elemental Burst

Elemental Burst is a Special Skill


Elemental Burst is a powerful move that Genshin Impact characters can use in combat. For example, Diluc uses a move with a powerful burst of fire, while Venti creates a tornado that draws in enemies.

Each character's Elemental Burst is different, so try out as many as you can.

Elemental Burst has a Gauge


Elemental Burst skills take time to charge. Energy is gathered by attacking and gathering elemental orbs from defeated enemies in order to fill the gauge.

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 have your party members take turns in using Elemental Bursts in a tough 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.
