Chongyon’s abilities let him easily switch between focusing on physical or elemental damage.

Perform up to 4 consecutive strikes.
Drains Stamina over time to perform continuous swirling attacks against all nearby opponents. At the end of the sequence, perform a more powerful slash.
Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
His attack can perform up to 4 consecutive strikes of his Claymore to deal physical damage. Because of it weapon type, it’s easy for him to break ores with his attack. It’s also useful for destroying Geo elemental formations and enemy shields.
When you hold the attack button, Chongyun’s stamina will be drained over time to perform a continuous spinning attack against all nearby enemies and at the end of the sequence, he will finish with a powerful slashing attack. It’s also possible to do the final slash without performing the continuous spin or draining stamina if you hold and release the attack button just before Chonyun begins his charged attack.
His elemental skill strikes the ground with his Claymore causing a Cryo explosion in a circular area in front of him that deals Cryo damage. After a short delay, the cold air created by the cryo explosion will coalesce into a chunk of frost field within which all damage done through normal and charged attacks by Sword, Claymore, and Polearm wielding characters will be converted to Cryo damage.
This may seem like a simple skill at first but its strength lies in its ability to give any melee-based character a way to easily activate Cryo-based elemental reactions.
