How to Beat the Hydro Hypostasis

Attack it during its resting state

Genshin - Hydro Hypostasis - Resting State

Similar to other Hypostasis bosses, the Hydro Hypostasis has a resting state, during which its core is vulnerable to attacks. Deal the most damage to the Hydro Hypostasis while in this state.

Destroy the water droplets

Genshin - Hydro Hypostasis - Water Droplet

Use Cryo to destroy the water droplets

Once the Hydro Hypostasis reaches low HP, it will release water droplets that resemble hydro slimes in order to regenerate HP. Destroy all three water droplets to prevent the Hydro Hypostasis from regenerating!

Using Cryo attacks from Cryo Characters is the fastest way to destroy these water droplets.
