Childe Constellations

You can play Childe without worrying about his constellations. However, if you want to improve the character, focus on :

  • His C1 "Foul Legacy : Tide Withholder": it makes Childe's rotation more flexible by reducing the recharge time of his elemental attack by 20%;
  • His C3 "Chaos of the Abyss: Vortex of unrest": with this, you increase the level of Childe's elemental ability by 3 points.

How to play Childe in Genshin Impact ?

Childe in Demon Posture in Genshin Impact

In Genshin Impact, Childe takes on the role of Enabler; he applies the Hydro element to enemies. He can also inflict heavy damage with his Foul Legacy. However, he is not intended to remain on the battlefield for long. To make the most of its potential, you need to perform precise rotations.

Childe's normal attack statistics

Childe initially fires arrows with his normal attack. By throwing loaded arrows, you infuse them with Hydro and apply the effect "Riptide". This inflicts area damage to enemies.

Childe's elemental attack statistic in Genshin Impact

By activating Childe's elemental skill "Foul Legacy : Raging Tide", he switches to melee attack. From then on, his normal and charged attacks transform, performing direct hits infused with Hydro. These apply the effect "Riptide Flash" effect which deals area Hydro damage, considered elemental skill damage. Tartaglia can remain in this mode for up to 30 seconds.

However, you are advised to change character quickly and not to exceed 9-10 seconds of use. The longer you keep the melee stance, the longer its recharge time will be.

When attacking with it, perform two normal attacks, then a charged one and so on until you switch to another character to create elemental reactions.

Statistics of the Childe elemental rampage in Genshin Impact

Childe's elemental rampage "Havoc: Obliteration" has two variations. If activated in bow mode, Childe fires an arrow charged with Hydro, dealing area damage while applying the "Riptide" effect to enemies. The talent also restores some of the character's energy. In addition, if you are in Foul Legacy, Childe will attack head-on and do more damage.

It is recommended that you cast elemental rampages in bow mode, as this reduces the animation time and allows you to restore Childe's energy more easily. You can however cast the talent in melee mode at the end of a fight to finish off your enemies.

Prioritise Childe's elemental skill, his elemental rampage, and then possibly his normal attack.

What is the best equipment for Childe?

You are advised to increase Childe's critical hit rate as much as possible in Genshin Impact. His "Sword of Torrents" passive applies the "Riptide" effect to enemies receiving critical hits from normal and charged attacks when Demon's Stance is active. Childe will also require a high amount of critical and attack damage. Check out the best artifacts and weapons to equip on Childe now.

Childe's climbing materials in Genshin Impact

Do you want to raise your Childe to level 90 in Genshin Impact ? To achieve this, you will need to collect several resources:

  • 18 Recruit's Insignia, 30 Sergeant's Insignia and 36 Lieutenant's Insignia to be collected on Fatui;
  • 1 Shard, 9 Fragments, 9 Pieces and 6 Stones of Lazurite varunada as well as 46 Cleansing Heart, which you obtain on theOceanid;
  • 168 Starconch, which you will find on the beaches of Liyue. You can locate them more easily with the interactive map of Teyvat.

Which team should Childe play in?

Best team for Tartaglia: Tartaglia, Xiangling, Kazuha or Sucrose and Bennett

Childe is mostly played in teams based on elementary reactions. We recommend the following teams:

  • The international team: Childe / Xiangling / Kazuha or Sucrose / Bennett. This is where Childe shines the most. Start by applying Hydro with him, plus cast Bennett's, Kazuha's and Xiangling's elemental rampages (also placing Guoba) as well as Childe's in arc mode. Then activate his Foul Legacy to attack directly. This will allow you to do a lot of damage thanks to the Vaporize reactions. You can also replace the character Anemo with Raiden;
  • The firework team: Childe / Fischl / Beidou / Bennett. In this configuration, you will rely mainly on Electro-Charged, but also on Vaporize;
  • Team permafreeze: Ganyu / Childe / Kazuha / Diona: Ganyu's elemental rampage will allow you to freeze a maximum number of enemies.
