Excellent Support for Any Team

The Electro Traveler can function as a support role for any team. The utility of providing Energy Recharge for any party member makes them a very flexable and will usually not conflict with common team compositions.

Simply think of them as a character that's there if you need more Energy Recharge if you cant use a mainstat or substat artifact to make up for it.

Best Constellations Rating and Explanation

Rating Constellation Effect / Merits
C2 ★★☆ • When Falling Thunder hits an opponent, it will decrease their Electro RES by 15% for 8s.
C4 ★★☆ • When a character obtains Abundance Amulets generated by Lightning Blade, if this character's Energy is less than 35%, the Energy restored by the Abundance Amulets is increased by 100%.
C6 ★★★ • Every 2 Falling Thunder attacks triggered by Bellowing Thunder will greatly increase the DMG dealt by the next Falling Thunder, which will deal 200% of its original DMG and will restore an additional 1 Energy to the current character.

C2 to Debuff Enemies

Enemies hit by Falling Thunder will have their Electro RES decreased by 15%, making Electro Traveler a nice initiator for Electro DPS characters.

C4 Increases Energy Recharge

Electro Traveler is already good at providing Energy Recharge to other party members, but with their C4 unlocked they are able to restore more if the active character has less than 35% Energy.

C6 for a Stronger Elemental Burst

As a support, Electro Traveler's main contribution is their Elemental Burst. Increasing the damage and effectivity of the Energy Recharge from their Burst will definitely be great.
