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, to enemies with his Charged Shots, Elemental Burst and Critical Hits . Enemies marked with Riptide will take AoE Hydro DMG when hit by a fully charged Aim Shot, and will spread Riptide to other enemies if they are defeated.

Enemies marked with Riptide will also trigger a huge Hydro AoE explosion when hit by Tartaglia's Melee Elemental Burst, Light Obliteration.

Keep An Eye on Cooldowns

Tartaglia cooldown

Tartaglia's Elemental Skill, Foul Legacy: Raging Tide, changes his combat style from ranged to melee with Hydro imbued Normal Attacks and an AoE Elemental Burst. Critical Hits in melee stance will inflict Riptide

While in melee stance, Tartaglia can close in on enemies, making for a unique hybrid play style. However, the longer he remains in melee stance the longer the cooldown, so be sure to swap back to ranged when before the melee stance ends.

>>51 Now consider usage of c0 Childe uptill 30 second, near danger zone...cooldown 36 seconds For c1 Childe, cooldown is somewhere around 27 seconds!!! For an uptime of 30 seconds, u are instead rewarded by 3 seconds and have smaller cooldown In a way, c1 Childe is awarded the longer he stays in melee and 20% reduction in cooldown gives increasing return for more uptime, and along the way allows for room for mistakes and lets you have the viable option of having Childe push on longer if needed

51 Anonymous11 days

For people wondering if Childe c1 is any good- completely depends on u for c1-Consider everytime u change back to range, u get a 6 second penalty for staying the amount of time in melee(14 second melee time gets you 20 second cooldown) So now at c1, that cooldown is 16 second now...not much difference As pointed out by Reddit...for 16 second earlier uptime was 10, now it's 14 a 40% raise for 20% cooldown reduction (1/2)

      Zhongli is good - definitely better than when he first came out. Venti is kind of an insane character overall with his crowd control which is why people were pulling so much for him. Zhongli is different since the petrification from his burst only lasts a few seconds. Most people pull him for his shield, so if you are looking for a strong shield or Geo character then you can pull him but it's not really that necessary. It just matters whether you like playing him :)

    • Need someone mainly for the teapot stuff :D
