Tartaglia - Genshin Impact


Tartaglia is a Hydro DPS unit in Genshin Impact who can enable Vaporize reactions for Xiangling.
You should pull for him only if you are willing to spend time learning his kit and proper rotations for his teams.
His best team is "International" which features Tartaglia, Xiangling, Kazuha and Bennett.

Tartaglia (Childe) is an on-field Hydro unit in Genshin Impact. He has excellent synergy with Xiangling and can offer consistent Hydro application to let her Vaporize all of her Pyronado damage. It takes a while to get used to managing his skill cooldowns but once you do, he can be an incredibly fun character to play. If you plan on building him, here’s what you need to know about Tartaglia’s Talents, Constellations and Passives.

Genshin Impact Tartaglia: Should you pull? 

Tartaglia is a top meta unit in specific teams but a lot of newer players might not be able to pull of his team rotations perfectly. If you are willing to understand how he functions and properly play him, he is worth getting for your account.

Genshin Impact Tartaglia: Talents

Elemental Skill - Foul Legacy: Raging Tide: Unleashes a set of weaponry made of pure water, dealing Hydro DMG to surrounding opponents and entering Melee Stance.

In this Stance, Tartaglia's Normal and Charged Attacks are converted to Hydro DMG that cannot be overridden by any other elemental infusion and change as follows:

Normal Attack

Performs up to 6 consecutive Hydro strikes.

Charged Attack

Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash a cross slash, dealing Hydro DMG.

Riptide Slash

Hitting an opponent affected by Riptide with a melee attack unleashes a Riptide Slash that deals AoE Hydro DMG. DMG dealt in this way is considered Elemental Skill DMG, and can only occur once every 1.5s.

After 30s, or when the ability is unleashed again, this skill will end. Tartaglia will return to his Ranged Stance and this ability will enter CD. The longer Tartaglia stays in his Melee Stance, the longer the CD.

If the return to a ranged stance occurs automatically after 30s, the CD is even longer.

Elemental Burst - Havoc: Obliteration: Performs different attacks based on what stance Tartaglia is in when casting.

Ranged Stance: Flash of Havoc

Swiftly fires a Hydro-imbued magic arrow, dealing AoE Hydro DMG and applying the Riptide status.

Returns a portion of its Energy Cost after use.

Melee Stance: Light of Obliteration

Performs a slash with a large AoE, dealing massive Hydro DMG to all surrounding opponents, which triggers Riptide Blast.

Riptide Blast

When the obliterating waters hit an opponent affected by Riptide, it clears their Riptide status and triggers a Hydro Explosion that deals AoE Hydro DMG. DMG dealt in this way is considered Elemental Burst DMG.

  • Cooldown: 15  seconds

  • Energy Cost: 60

Genshin Impact Tartaglia: Constellations 

C1 - Foul Legacy: Tide Withholder: Decreases the CD of Foul Legacy: Raging Tide by 20%

C2 - Fould Legacy: Understream: When opponents affected by Riptide are defeated, Tartaglia regenerates 4 Elemental Energy.

C3 - Abyssal Mayhem: Vortex of Turmoil: Increases the Level of Foul Legacy: Raging Tide by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.

C4 - Abyssal Mayhem: Hydrospout: If Tartaglia is in Foul Legacy: Raging Tide's Melee Stance, triggers Riptide Slash against opponents on the field affected by Riptide every 4s, otherwise, triggers Riptide Flash.

Riptide Slashes and Riptide Flashes triggered by this Constellation effect are not subject to the time intervals that would typically apply to these two Riptide effects, nor do they have any effect on those time intervals.

C5 - Havoc: Formless Blade: Increases the Level of Havoc: Obliteration by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.

C6 - Havoc: Annihilation: When Havoc: Obliteration is cast in Melee Stance, the CD of Foul Legacy: Raging Tide is reset.

This effect will only take place once Tartaglia returns to his Ranged Stance.

Genshin Impact Tartaglia: Passives

Never Ending: Extends Riptide duration by 8s.

Sword of Torrents: When Tartaglia is in Foul Legacy: Raging Tide's Melee Stance, on dealing a CRIT hit, Normal and Charged Attacks apply the Riptide status effect to opponents.

Master of Weaponry: Increases your own party members' Normal Attack Level by 1.
