Genshin Impact's first major update has arrived; 1.1 is finally here, and with it brought two new characters in a promotion banner, Childe and Diona. Here's a guide giving more information on what Childe can do!
Genshin Impact Tartaglia Skills, Talents, and Ascension
Childe is really his alias; his real name is Tartaglia, and he is No.11 of the Eleven Harbingers of the Fatui! He first appeared in-game during Chapter 1, Act 1 of the Teyvat Chapter Storyline, and was released in the Farewell of Snezhnaya banner on November 11, 2020, in Patch v1.1.

- Opponents affected by Riptide will suffer AoE Hydro DMG when attacked by Childe. DMG dealt is equivalent to Normal Attack DMG.
- Riptide Flash
- A fully charged Aimed Shot hat hits an opponent already affected by riptide deals AoE DMG around the.
- This can only occur once every 0.7 seconds.

Foul Legacy: Raging Tide
- Hitting an opponent affected by the Riptide status with a melee attack unleashes a Riptide Slash that deals AoE Hydro DMG. DMG dealt in this way is considered Elemental Skill DMG
- Can only occur once every 1.5 seconds
- After 30 seconds, or when the ability procs again, this skill will end. Childe will return to his Range Stance, and this Elemental Skill will enter a cooldown. The longer Childe stats in his Melee Stance, the longer the cooldown becomes.
- If the return to Ranged Stance occurs automatically after 30 seconds, the cooldown becomes even longer than normal.
This Elemental Skill changes depending on what Stance Childe is currently in.
