How to Beat Childe

Survive the 3 Phases

Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3
HydroHydro ElectroElectro
ElectroHydro
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

Genshin - Childe Boss Fight - Shield

In Phases 1 and 2 Childe deploys a shield that reduces incoming DMG. 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.

Keep the Fight Close to the Edges

Genshin - Childe Boss Fight - Thunder Spear

After Phase 2, Childe will occasionally mark the player for a high damaging lighting strike which can easily KO a party member. This attack can by cancelled by standing in the Pyro effect in the edge of the field which will remove the mark.

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, we 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 DMG will help secure survivability.
