General Combat System

The basic combat system in Genshin heavily depends on elemental (chain) reactions. Memorizing the elemental system is the key to successful late game battles.

Every character has a standard attack, a charged attack and a plunge attack (aerial launch), followed by one active skill and an elemental burst (ultimate).

Item consumption and buff-food

Consumption Gauge

Remember that you cannot use as many healing items as you would like during combat. Every character has a limit of how much they can "eat" until you cannot heal them with items anymore. So relying on one healer isn't that bad. They added this mechanic in v0.9.9.
