HydroHydro ElectroElectro
Electro + Hydro

Childe has 3 phases you must beat before you can clear the encounter. In phase one Childe only uses Hydro Elemental attacks. In phase 2 Childe switches to only Electro Elemental attacks and in phase 3 Childe uses both Hydro and Electro Elemental attacks interchangeably.

Break His Shield Twice to Knock Childe Down

Break Childe shield

In phases 1 and 2 Childe deploys a shield that reduces incoming damage. Breaking both of these shields will knock Childe down creating a perfect chance to strike. Save your Elemental Skills or Bursts for when Childe deploys his shield to quickly break it and go all out.

Use Hydro and Electro Resistance Potions

Childe's Phases Reommended Potions
Phase 1 Genshin Impact - Desiccant Potion Image Desiccant Potion
Phase 2 Genshin Impact - Insulation Potion Image Insulation Potion
Phase 3
Genshin Impact - Desiccant Potion Image + Genshin Impact - Insulation Potion Image

Since Childe's elements change depending on the phase it is recommended to prepare Elemental Resistance potions beforehand. Childe's attacks deal quite a bit of damage so being able to mitigate 25% of Hydro and Electro damage will help secure survivability.

Recommended Food

Defense Food

Since potion and food effects can stack, you can maximize your defensive capabilities by also crafting and eating some defense food before engaging Childe.

Bring Your Best Healers

Good heals are key to surviving all 3 phases of the fight due to Childe's high damage output, large AoE and high speed attacks. Being able to keep your character's HP topped off will ensure smooth runs through all 3 Phases.

Keep the Fight Close to the Edges

Genshin - Childe Strategy Guide

After phase 1, Childe will occasionally mark the player for a high damaging lighting strike which can easily KO a party member. This attack can by canceled by standing in the Pyro effect in the edge of the field which will remove the mark.

Recommended Characters

Use Noelle's Shields

Some of Childe's attacks are hard to dodge, especially during the 2nd and 3rd phase. If you're having a hard time dodging it or still familiarizing yourself with the attack patterns, it's recommended to use Noelle's Elemental Skill to give your character a shield that will reduce incoming damage.

Burst Down Childe's Shields

Use your skills and bursts to break Childe's shields, once it's broken, Childe will be downed and vulnerable for some time giving you an opportunity to go all out with your choice of DPS.

Keep Your Distance

For the first phase, Childe will do mostly ranged attacks which can be dodged easily if you keep your distance. Use a ranged character during this time to pick him off before he starts his next attack pattern.

For the second and third phase, most of Childe's attacks will be dashing towards you to do a melee attack. Dash out of the way and pick him of again with a ranged character or take this time to hit him back with your own melee characters before dashing out of his reach.

Save Your Heals

It's a good idea to save your burst heals for when you need it the most because a lot of the attacks are enough to do substantial damage and one-hit your characters if they're low enough.
