How to Use Tartaglia (Childe)

Tear Through Mobs with Riptide

Tartaglia Riptide

The key to maximizing damage with Tartaglia is applying his unique debuff, Riptide.

Enemies hit with Tartaglia's Charged Shots (Bow Stance), Elemental Burst (Bow Stance), and Critical Hits from Normal and Charged Attacks (Melee Stance) will mark opponents with Riptide.

Depending on how Tartaglia triggers the effects of the Riptide mark, Tartaglia will deal additional instances of Hydro DMG.

Riptide Triggers Explanations

Tartaglia's Riptide 101
Genshin Impact - Tartaglia How to Do Riptide Slash
Riptide Slash: AoE Hydro explosion by hitting an opponent marked with Riptide while on Melee Stance.
Genshin Impact - Tartaglia How to Do Riptide Burst
Riptide Burst: Defeating opponents marked with Riptide will unleash an AoE Hydro explosion, which spreads Riptide marks to nearby enemies.
Genshin Impact - Tartaglia How to Do Riptide Blast
Riptide Blast: Marked opponents when hit by Tartaglia's Elemental Burst while on Melee Stance triggers an AoE Hydro explosion, but clears the Riptide mark.
Genshin Impact - Tartaglia How to Do Riptide Flash
Riptide Flash: Charged Shots on an opponent marked with Riptide will trigger three minor Hydro explosions.

Group Enemies to Trigger Multiple Riptide Slashes

Genshin - Childe

Hitting enemies marked with Riptide will trigger independent instances of Riptide Slashes. This means that all marked enemies in close proximity will unleash a barrage of AoE Hydro DMG, and if defeated, will trigger Riptide Bursts too!

Try to group enemies as much as possible to exponentially increase Tartaglia's DPS. You can easily do this by using Anemo characters with grouping crowd control skills like Kazuha or Sucrose.

Watch Tartaglia (Childe)'s Elemental Skill Cooldown

Genshin - Tartaglia Cooldown

While in melee stance, Tartaglia can close in on enemies and trigger Riptides. However, the longer he remains in melee stance the longer its cooldown becomes, so be sure to swap stances to easily manage his cooldowns.

Recommended to Stay in Melee Stance for Around 10-15 Seconds

It is recommended to stay in Melee Stance for around 10-15 seconds at maximum so that your Elemental Skill cooldown would not go beyond 20+ seconds.

This synergizes well with the artifact buff duration of Heart of Depth, and weapon effects of bows like Thundering Pulse.

Cooldown Resets after Using Elemental Burst (C6 Only)

Genshin - Tartaglia Constellation 6

After unlocking Tartaglia's sixth and final constellation, Havoc: Annihilation, using Tartaglia's melee Elemental Burst will reset his Elemental Skill cooldown.

This can only be done after returning to bow stance, which means your melee stance will always be up after using your melee Elemental Burst.
