Hyperbloom Reaction Guide

Genshin Impact Hyperbloom Reaction Guide.png

Hyperbloom is an elemental reaction in Genshin Impact that is triggered when Electro hits Dendro Cores. See how to trigger Hyperbloom, best characters to trigger it, and the best teams for this elemental reaction!

What is the Hyperbloom Reaction?

Reaction Between Dendro Cores and Electro

Hyperbloom is the reaction that happens when Dendro Cores created from Bloom are hit with Electro. These cores then turn into Sprawing Shots, which home on the nearby enemies to deal an increased Dendro damage in a comparatively smaller AoE.

Dendro Element and Reactions Guide

Nilou's Bountiful Cores Can't Hyperbloom

Nilou is a unit when it comes to Bloom teams, however, any team with her around won't be able to trigger Hyperbloom since Bountiful Cores that she create can't do Hyperbloom.

Scales with the EM of the Electro Unit

The final (base) DMG computation of Hyperbloom scales with Elemental Mastery, which means you'll have to load up your Electro unit with EM stats to make Hyperbloom strong.

In special cases where Electro is Swirled by an Anemo unit, the Hyperbloom damage is inherited from the Anemo unit's EM, and not the Electro's!

How to Trigger Hyperbloom

Trigger Bloom First

To trigger Hyperbloom, you must create a Bloom reaction first. Simply apply Dendro or Hydro on any unit that has already either of the two elements.

Bloom Reaction Guide

Hit the Dendro Cores with Electro

Once the Dendro Cores are in the field, simply hit them with Electro. Electro units who have an AoE skill are far more effective than those who have skills that lock on enemies, since the cores don't move and only spawn where Bloom happened.

This means, skills like Beidou's discharge are less likely to hit the cores, and are therefore ineffective with Hyperbloom teams!

Best Characters To Use for Hyperbloom

Nahida

Nahida is a staple in most Dendro-teams because of her excellent Dendro application, and Elemental Mastery-scaling. This makes her an extremely versatile unit in Hyperbloom teams where she can act as a driver, or the main DPS of the team!

When to Use Nahida in Hyperbloom

Genshin - Checkmark When you want a character who can inadvertently increase the team's overall DMG by scaling off of EM.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want to reward triggering Elemental reactions, and playing out a diverse set of characters.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want a character who can dish out damage in a massive AoE.

Nahida Best Builds and Weapons

Raiden Shogun

Raiden Shogun in Hyperbloom teams is an excellent Electro unit who can detonate Dendro Cores into Sprawing Shots. Despite being built far-differently from her usual DPS build, this EM-scaling Raiden doesn't shy away from providing damage for your team!

And since the weapon that has the highest EM-stat in the game is Dragon's Bane, Raiden can effectively make use of it to increase her EM, thereby increasing Hyperbloom damage in return!

When to Use Raiden in Hyperbloom

Genshin - Checkmark When you want to reward the team for using high-cost Elemental Bursts.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want to hit the Dendro Cores with 100% accuracy.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want consistent Electro application in between each Bloom proc, to trigger Hyperbloom.

Kuki Shinobu

Kuki Shinobu is another exceptional Electro unit who scales with EM, and can provide decent healing for the team. Her elemental skill radiates around your active character in a small AoE, which means she's excellent in Hyperbloom teams with close quarters potential!

When to Use Shinobu in Hyperbloom

Genshin - Checkmark When you want to reward the team for using high-cost Elemental Bursts.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want to hit the Dendro Cores with 100% accuracy.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want consistent Electro application in between each Bloom proc, to trigger Hyperbloom.

Alhaitham

Alhaitham is an outstanding Dendro character who leverages on infusing his normal and charged attacks with Dendro. This enables him to constantly apply the element and trigger Bloom, while dishing out high-damage to enemies!

When to Use Alhaitham in Hyperbloom

Genshin - Checkmark When you want a superb on-field hitter who can juggle between enemies, while being supported by your off-field characters
Genshin - Checkmark When you have a good grasp of what a good rotation is, and how to execute it properly to give way to elemental reactions that Alhaitham will use once his Elemental Skill is up.

Alhaitham Rating and Best Builds

Kokomi

Kokomi is one of the best Hydro characters in the game who can effectively bring Dendro-teams such as Hyperbloom to the next level. Since she's one of the best characters to bring in a Bloom team, it goes without saying she's as effective in Hyperbloom teams!

When to Use Kokomi in Hyperbloom

Genshin - Checkmark When you want to apply Hydro in a decent AoE for a decent amount of time to consistently spawn Dendro Cores.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want an excellent Healer for the team who can mitigate loss HP from enemies.

Kokomi Ratings and Best Builds

Baizhu

Baizhu's role in Hyperbloom teams is a utility support who helps create Dendro Cores with the Hydro character. And thru his ascension passive, Baizhu also takes Hyperbloom damage to the next level by buffing it based on his HP!

When to Use Baizhu in Hyperbloom

Genshin - Checkmark When you want a character that will increase the team's overall sustain without the expense of elemental application.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want to reward triggering Dendro-based reactions.

Baizhu Rating and Best Builds

Xingqiu

Xingqiu is a must-have for DPS who rely on their normal attacks, or drivers to efficiently trigger a reaction. In Hyperbloom teams, Xingqiu works exactly that way, helping the Dendro character to create Dendro Cores!

When to Use Xingqiu in Hyperbloom

Genshin - Checkmark When your DPS is a hard-hitter who needs to consisteny Hydro application to be more effective.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want damage resistance for your active character thru Xingqiu's elemental skill.

Xingqiu Rating and Best Builds

Yelan

Yelan works similarly with Xingqiu, in terms of their kit, but Yelan excels in providing more DMG buffs because of her ascension passives!

When to Use Yelan in Hyperbloom

Genshin - Checkmark When your DPS is a hard-hitter who needs to consisteny Hydro application to be more effective.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want to reward using a diverse set of characters from Yelan's first ascension passive.
Genshin - Checkmark When you want to further increase the damage that you dish out from normal attacks.

Kazuha Rating and Best Builds

Special Mention - Kazuha

Kazuha is an incredible Anemo unit who breaks what transformative reactions can do, and works stupidly simple in Hyperbloom teams.

And since he scales with EM, and provides elemental DMG bonus to the team, Kazuha can further buff Electro to increase Hyperbloom damage!

Kazuha Rating and Best Builds

Best Teams for Hyperbloom

Nahida-Raiden Hyperbloom Team

Main-DPS Support Sub-DPS
Genshin - Raiden Raiden Genshin - Kokomi Kokomi Genshin - Nahida Nahida Genshin - Kazuha Kazuha

This Nahida-Raiden team is easily one of the best Hyperbloom teams for being extremely well-rounded and versatile. Raiden acts as as the main-DPS of the team by triggering the Hyperbloom reaction, while Kokomi and Nahida sets up Bloom.

Kazuha synergizes well with everyone in this team for controlling enemies, and swirling Electro whenever possible, and by acting as Raiden's right-hand unit!

Nahida-Raiden Hyperbloom Team V2

Main-DPS Sub-DPS
Genshin - Nahida Nahida Genshin - Raiden Raiden Genshin - Fischl Fischl Genshin - Yelan Yelan

This variant of the Nahida-Raiden team replaces Kazuha and Kokomi with Yelan and Fischl, to act as units who will support Nahida, and act as the team's battery, respectively.

Nahida also becomes the main-DPS and Dendro-driver of the team, while Raiden still helps activating cores. Since this team is more focused with normal attacks, Yelan and Fischl can help Nahida trigger other reactions like Quicken, aside from Hyperbloom!

Alhaitham-Raiden Hyperbloom Team

Main-DPS Sub-DPS
Genshin - Alhaitham Alhaitham Genshin - Raiden Raiden Genshin - Nahida Nahida Genshin - Yelan Yelan

This Alhaitham-Raiden Hyperbloom team works similarly with the second variant of the Nahida-Raiden team, in that it's a normal attack-focused team that can constantly trigger Hyperbloom, alongside Quicken reactions, when the rotation is done properly.

The only caveat of this team is that you'll have to actively trigger Bloom for the cores, otherwise Alhaitham and Raiden will just keep on triggering Quicken!
