Energy Recharge Artifact.jpg

The Energy Recharge is one of the stats your characters have in Genshin Impact. Learn what the Energy Recharge does and how you can increase it in this guide.

What is Energy Recharge

Energy Recharge refers to the amount of Energy your character regenerates with each Elemental Particle and Elemental Orb obtained. The higher the Energy Recharge, the faster you'll be able to fill up the Energy.

Once your Energy is filled up, you can then use your character's Elemental Burst or Ultimate Skill.

Elemental Particles

When fighting enemies, you gain a little energy with each attack. An elemental particle also gets released when you defeat an enemy.

When using elemental skills to damage enemies or creating elemental reactions, more elemental particles are released.

Elemental Orbs

Elemental orbs are bigger elemental particles and regenerate more energy, they are often released when figthing larger enemies.

Elemental Reactions

How to Increase Energy Recharge

The base value of Energy Recharge is 100% and you can increase that value by equipping your character with better artifacts and weapons.

Some character's skills also increase energy recharge when activated.
