Genshin Impact : Tartaglia

Meet Tartaglia — the cunning Snezhnayan whose unpredictable personality keeps people guessing his every move.
Don't be under any illusion as to what he might be thinking or what his intentions are. Just remember this: Behind that innocent, childlike exterior lies a finely honed instrument of war.

No. 11 of The Harbingers, also known as "Childe." His name is highly feared on the battlefield.

Skills Talent:

Cutting Torrent

Cutting Torrent (Normal Attack)
Perform up to six consecutive shots with a bow.

Cutting Torrent (Charged Attack)
Perform a more precise Aimed Shot with increased Damage. While aiming, the power of Hydro will accumulate on the arrowhead. An arrow fully charged with the torrent will deal Hydro Damage and apply the Riptide status.

Cutting Torrent (Riptide)

Opponents affected by Riptide will suffer from Area of Effect Hydro Damage effects when attacked by Tartaglia in various ways. Damage dealt in this way is considered Normal Attack Damage.

  • Riptide Flash
    •  A fully-charged Aimed Shot that hits an opponent affected by Riptide deals consecutive bouts of Area of Effect Damage. Can occur once every 0.7 seconds.
  • Riptide Burst
    • Defeating an opponent affected by Riptide creates a Hydro burst that inflicts the Riptide status on nearby opponents hit.

Cutting Torrent (Plunging Attack)
Gathering the might of Hydro, Barbara plunges towards the ground from mid-air, damaging all enemies in her path. Deals Area of Effect Hydro Damage upon impact with the ground.

Elemental Skill

Foul Legacy: Raging Tide

Unleashes a set of weaponry made of pure water, dealing Hydro DMG to surrounding opponents and entering Melee Stance.

In this Stance, Tartaglia’s Normal and Charged Attacks are converted to Hydro DMG that cannot be overridden by any other elemental infusion and change as follows:

  • Normal Attack
    •  Perform up to six consecutive Hydro strikes.
  • Charged Attack
    • Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash a cross slash, dealing Hydro Damage.
  • Riptide Slash
    • Hitting an opponent affected by Riptide with a melee attack unleashes a Riptide Slash that deals Area of Effect Hydro Damage.
    • DMG dealt in this way is considered Elemental Skill Damage, and can only occur once every 1.5 seconds.

After 30 seconds, or when the ability is unleashed again, this skill will end. Tartaglia will return to his Ranged Stance and this ability will enter Cooldown. The longer Tartaglia stays in his Melee Stance, the longer the Cooldown. If the return to a ranged stance occurs automatically after 30 seconds, the Cooldown is even longer.

Elemental Burst

Havoc: Obliteration

Performs different attacks based on what stance Tartaglia is in when using — Normal or Ranged.

  • Ranged Stance: Flash of Havoc
    • Swiftly fires a Hydro-imbued magic arrow, dealing Area of Effect Hydro Damage and applying the Riptide status. Returns a portion of its Energy Cost after use.
  • Melee Stance: Light of Obliteration
    • Performs a slash with a large Area of Effect, dealing massive Hydro Damage to all surrounding opponents, which triggers Riptide Blast.
  • Riptide Blast
    • When the obliterating waters hit an opponent affected by Riptide, it clears their Riptide status and triggers a Hydro Explosion that deals Area of Effect Hydro Damage.
    • DMG dealt in this way is considered Elemental Burst Damage.

Havoc: Formless Blade | Constellation Lv. 5
  • Increases the level of Havoc: Obliteration by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
