The Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents will be encountered during the Archon Quest,
We Will Be Reunited. You will get to fight the Abyss Herald a total of three times during the Archon Quest; twice in the domain, and once in the Boreas Area in Wolvendom.
As much as possible, try to avoid getting hit by the Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents, as some of his attacks increase the CD of your character's skill if they are currently on cooldown.
You can Freeze the Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents to render them immobile for a few seconds. The Abyss Herald utilizes the Hydro Element, however in order to freeze the Abyss Herald, you will need a Hydro character for the Freeze reaction to work when applying Cryo.
The Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents will be able generate a shield when you fight him for the second time onwards. The shield activates when its HP gets low. Aside from Cryo characters, you can also bring an Electro Character to break the shield much faster.
We recommend bringing at least one Cryo character and one Hydro character before taking on the Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents, as it is susceptible to Freeze. Pyro and Electro characters are also viable in dealing damage and breaking shields respectively.
This is the moveset of the Abyss Herald, which makes use of its Hydro Sword attacks to deal high DMG.
|Attack Patterns||How to Dodge|
|The Abyss Herald launches himself forward with a vertical spin move. As soon as the Abyss Herald extends both swords, dodge to either side.|
3 Hit Combo
|The Abyss Herald unleashes a 3-hit melee combo. This can easily be dodged by moving back or to the side.|
|The Abyss Herald launches a quick ranged slash. This can be dodged quickly.|
|Very similar to the normal quick slash move, however this time each slash shoots out a hydro shockwave that can knock you down. Dodge to either side of the Abyss Herald's swings to avoid the shockwave.|
Cross Slash Shockwave
|The Abyss Herald crosses his swords and sends out a large cross shaped shockwave. When the Abyss Herald raises both swords, move far to one side.|
Sword Flurry AoE
|The Abyss Herald swings wildly finishing with a large AoE attack. Be careful not to get caught in the flurry of swings, ats it will knock you down and deal high DMG.|

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 :)

Looking for someone to help me grind to that 15k namecard achievement in Twisted Realm! I don't have enough dmg to get there myself, but with another person it should be doable :) My Chongyun puts out pretty high damage, and I can also provide my lvl. 82 Jean as a healer. Please lmk if you're interested!
