Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
Diluc’s Normal Attack performs up to 4 consecutive strikes with the 4th strike launching enemies.

Use this wisely to scatter enemy groups and defeat shielded foes. Unlocking the talent “Relentless” decreases Diluc’s charged attack stamina consumption and increases its maximum duration.
His elemental skill slashes enemies dealing Pyro damage. This can be used up to 3 times before going on cooldown. Keep in mind if you wait too long in between usage it will also go on cooldown. Because the cooldown timer also starts after the first hit is pressed, you can weave basic attacks in between each press of his elemental skill making it loop into itself consistently.
His elemental burst releases a flaming bird that does massive AoE Pyro damage. This also causes Diluc to gain access to a Pyro enhancement buff which gives him Pyro damage to his normal and charged attacks for a set duration.
