Geo Status Applied Alone are Brief

Geo will immediately disappear if applied to both characters and enemies. The exceptions to this are enemies like the Geo Slime whose element are always applied to itself, and Zhongli's Elemental Burst effect on enemies which petrifies them for a short time.

When a different element is already applied to the character or enemy, applying Geo will cause the Crystallize Reaction.

Geo Strengths and Weaknesses

Destroys Elemental Armor and Rock Constructs

Genshin - Geo Element - Great against Geo Shields
Geo is best for dealing with Geo Elemental Armor from enemies like Geochanter Bracers or Stonehide Lawachurls. They can also destroy rock piles, and Mitachurl's rock shields.

Little Damage Against Other Elemental Shields and Armor

Genshin - Geo Element - Great against Geo Armor
Geo has low damage against non-Geo Elemental Armor and Elemental Shields, so it will be better to use other elements against those.


Elemental Shields need to be completely removed to do damage to an enemy, while Elemental Armor does not need to be completely removed to do damage to an enemy.

Shields used by Mitachurls don't have to be destroyed either as long as you hit the opponent's body.
