In Genshin Impact, there are 7 types of Elemental Resonance. Since there are 7 resonances, then how many of them can a single party have active at once? You will get the answer here. Also, we have the explanation of each elemental resonance so that you will know the advantage of them.
The Number of Elemental Resonance Which Can be Had by a Single Party
You are able to have 2 elemental resonances for your party. However, in the time to choose a character for your team comp, it is recommended for you to focus on the possible elemental reactions that you are able to do rather than focusing on elemental resonance. So, even though it is possible for you to have 2 elemental resonances for your party, however it is ideal to have only one in a team and then you have to focus on elemental reactions.
If you wonder what the best elemental resonance is for your team, actually, each resonance has each advantage. However, you may be able to choose Fervent Flames which generally match the element of your main DPS attacker. Impetuous Winds may be able to work better rather than using Fervent Flames, but it depends on the play style of your main DPS.
What Is Elemental Resonance in Genshin Impact?
Elemental Resonance in Genshin Impact is a buff which is given to the entire of your party when there are two or more characters in the party with the same element in your lineup. You will be able to have an effect that can give you bonus attack percentage, movement speed, crit rate, elemental resistance and many more. It depends on the resonance that you choose.
It is important for you to know that elemental resonance only takes effect as long as you have a full party of 4 in your lineup.
How to Access the Elemental Resonance?
You may wonder how to be able to access the elemental resonance in Genshin Impact. To access it, the thing that you have to do is to click on the Paimon icon which can be found at the upper left side of your screen. Or, If you are playing on a PC, you can hit ESC. After that, you have to click on the party setup and it will show you the characters present in your current team. There is a button for elemental resonance at the upper right side. There, you will see the effects and the name of the resonance which is active in your current party. If then you find that you cannot see an active resonance because you have two of the same elements in your party, it may be because you do not have a full party of 4. So, you can add one more to be able to activate the effect.
7 Types of Elemental Resonance
Types of Elemental Resonance
There are 7 types of elemental resonances. In the list below, you can see those 7 types of elemental resonances in Genshin Impact.
- Fervent Flames
It requires the combination of two Pyro characters. It is affected by Cryo for 40% less time and it is able to increase ATK by 25%. This elemental resonance is the best to use for combat. The 25% increase in attack is not small especially if it is around AR 40 and beyond. It will be good if your main DPS is Klee, Diluc, Bennett or Xiangling.
- Soothing Water
It requires the combination of two Hydro characters. It is affected by Pyro for 40% less time and it is able to increase incoming healing by 30%. Since the healing capabilities of all support characters in the game are already good, you may see that this elemental resonance is the worst. However, the thing that you should realize is that the game is new and you can imagine that along the road, you may find a very hard dungeon or boss where you will need healing.
- High Voltage
It requires the combination of two Electro characters. It is affected by Hydro for 40% less tima and there is a 100% chance for Superconduct, Overloaded and Electro-Charged to produce an Electro Elemental Particle. You are able to increase your damage exponentially if you play electro elemental characters.
- Shattering Ice
It requires the combination of two Cryo characters. It is affected by Electro for 40% less time. Also, CRIT Rate against enemies which are Frozen is increased or affected by Cryo by 15%. Chongyun or Ayaka can be good characters to have this elemental resonance.
- Impetuous Winds
It requires the combination of two Anemo characters. This elemental resonance decreases Stamina Consumption by 15%. In addition, it can increase Movement SPD by 10% and can shorten Skill CD by 5%. In terms of exploration, you may agree that this elemental resonance is the best. You can couple this resonance with Amber, Kaeya and Beidou so that you will have a great team for exploring the world of Genshin Impact.
- Enduring Rock
This elemental resonance requires the combination of two Geo characters. This resonance can increase the strength of the shield by 15%. What else? If there are characters which are protected by a shield, they will have some special characteristics including:
- DMG dealt is increased by 15%;
- dealing DMG to opponents will be able to decrease their Geo RES by 20% for 15 seconds.
It is no brainer to use this resonance if your main DPS is Zhongli, Noelle or Ningguang. It is because they can porc the Crystallized elemental location and therefore will have elemental shields up most of the time.
- Protective Canopy
This elemental resonance requires any 4 unique elements. What is the effect of this elemental resonance? The effect is all elemental RES is increased 15% and Physical RES is increased 15%. Well, even though the 15% elemental resistance is not good enough if we compare to others, but having a good combo of elemental reactions is better than any other effects that you can obtain from any elemental resonance.
