Chongyun Talents

Chongyon’s abilities let him easily switch between focusing on physical or elemental damage. He can prime enemies for cryo-based elemental reactions and he can buff the attack speed of melee based characters.

He may not seem as strong as the other characters at first glance but he can be very powerful when he’s paired with the right elements.

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.

Spirit Blade: Chonghua’s Layered Frost
Elemental Skill
Chongyun strikes the ground with his greatsword, causing a Cryo explosion in a circular AoE in front of him that deals Cryo DMG. After a short delay, the cold air created by the Cryo explosion will coalesce into a Chonghua Frost Field, within which all Sword, Claymore and Polearm-wielding characters’ weapons will be infused with Cryo.
Attributes Level 1 Level 15
Skill DMG 172.04% 408.6%
Infusion Duration 2 Seconds 2 Seconds
Field Duration 10 Seconds 10 Seconds
Cooldown 15 Seconds 15 Seconds

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.

Spirit Blade: Cloud-Parting Star
Elemental Burst
Performing the secret hand seals, Chongyun summons 3 giant spirit blades in mid-air that fall to the earth one by one after a short delay, exploding as they hit the ground. When the spirit blades explode, they will deal AoE Cryo DMG and launch opponents.

Cooldown 12 Seconds 12 Seconds
