On this page of the guide to Genshin Impact, you'll learn all about Childe, the character with the Hydro element. You will learn the general information about the character, what he is best suited for, how to build him well, and in which team he will have the greatest potential to perform his role.

General information

Childe is a five-star character with a Hydro element, fighting with a bow - Genshin Impact: Childe - best builds (Hydro) - Hydro - Genshin Impact Guide

Childe is a five-star character with a Hydro element, fighting with a bow. Nevertheless, he will very often attack with his water daggers at high speed.

When building Childe, you should first focus on the ATK, Crit Rate, Crit DMG and Hydro DMG.

Best compositions

  1. Hydro Healer - Childe/Beidou/Fischl/Bennet
  2. Hydro Healer - Childe/Xiangling/Bennet/Kazuha

Hydro Main DPS Build

Childe deals a lot of damage in a short time with her Elemental Skill. These damage scale with both additional ATK and Hydro damage.

  1. Artifacts - 4x Heart of Depth/2x Heart of Depth and 2x Shimenawa's Reminiscence
  2. Weapons - Polar Star/Rust/The Stringless

The first set worth equipping Childe with is 4x Heart of Depth. These artifacts will strengthen your Hydro DMG by extra 15%. What's more, using Elemental Skill will increase damage to normal and chargeable attacks by 30% for 15 seconds. Usually, you should not maintain Elemental Skill Childe for more than 15 seconds, as the skill's cooldown will increase significantly.

The second set of artifacts is a combination of 2x Heart of Depth and 2x Shimenawa's Reminiscence. Heart of Depth will boost your Hydro DMG by 15%, while Shimenawa will boost your ATK by 18%. In fact, you can use different sets of 2x artifacts, which give 18% ATK, such as Vermillion Hereafter or Gladiator's Finale.

Both sets of artifacts are very similar, so when choosing one of these two, focus on the statistics and what they offer. Choose those that boost Crit DMG, Crit Rate, ATK and Hydro DMG, preferably the percentage values.

In the case of weapons, it is worth checking out the three suggested by us - Genshin Impact: Childe - best builds (Hydro) - Hydro - Genshin Impact Guide

In the case of weapons, it is worth checking out the three suggested by us. In the first place, you should choose the bow called Polar Star. Unfortunately, it's a five-star weapon, so you have to be lucky to get it. This bow will increase your critical hit chance. What's more, your Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst will have increased damage by 12% on the first Refinement level. In addition, each attack (every type counts, such as charged or Elemental Burst attack) will give you a stack (maximum 4) for 12 seconds. For each of them, your ATK will be increased by 10%.

Second bow, Rust is a four-star weapon, so the chance of getting it is much bigger - Genshin Impact: Childe - best builds (Hydro) - Hydro - Genshin Impact Guide

Second bow, Rust is a four-star weapon, so the chance of getting it is much bigger. This bow increases ATK with each level. The ability of this weapon increases damage dealt by normal attacks by up to 40% at the first Refinement level but at the expense of reduced damage when aiming from the bow. This debuff, however, isn't a real problem for this character, as he mainly deals damage with his water daggers. Moreover, the buff for normal attacks is also applied to daggers in Elemental Skill. A budget, albeit great option for F2P players.

The third weapon is The Stringless. It increases Elemental Mastery, which is also a desirable statistic for Childe, especially when playing a composition with Fischl and Beidou. The weapon's skill increases Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG by 24%. This is a four-star bow, so there is also a better chance of getting this weapon. However, it is worth noting that the Elemental Skill damage boost will only work when daggers are activated.

Talents

Talents are abilities used by every character in the game. In case of Childe, you should develop both Elemental Skill (Foul Legacy: Raging Tide) and Elemental Burst (Havoc: Obliteration) evenly, because they have a very large impact on the damage inflicted by this character.

Regarding Normal Attacks (Cutting Torrent), invest in them last.

Constellations

Childe, as befits a five-star character, fulfills his role properly even on C0. You can safely invest in him, getting him only once. However, if you really want to roll Childe several times, it is worth to get him five times to reach level C4. As a result, when Tartaglia is in his Elemental Skill state, he will activate Riptide Slash (area attacks) every 4 seconds.
