Strengths

  • A free character you can use early until you get better characters later on.

  • Constellation upgrade does not cost primo gem.

  • Fast elemental skill cooldown.

  • Good elemental resistance shredder due to access to the Viridescent Venerer artifact.

  • Elemental skill and burst are good for crowd control.

  • Elemental skill can potentially generate quite a lot of elemental particles.

  • Can further decrease elemental resistance via constellation upgrade.

  • One of the few characters that can decrease Anemo resistance directly.

Weaknesses

  • Despite being a 5-star character, the base stats scaling is pretty low and is only on par with 4-star characters.

  • Elemental skill and burst’s talent scaling are on the lower end compared to other characters.

  • Elemental burst damage is a little hard to maximize against huge opponents or enemies that are immune to knockback.

  • One of the few characters in the game with no 3rd (utility) passive talent.

The Traveler creates a vacuum of wind vortex in her hand, dealing Anemo Damage to all enemies in a small AoE in front of her.

The vortex generates more wind slashes the longer you Hold the skill button (E button for PC users).

You can use this skill in 3 ways:

  • Press – Generates wind energy and hurls it to enemies within a short distance.

    • Using it this way will deal 1-hit Anemo damage to all enemies within a small area.

    • Small enemies hit by the skill will get knockback.

    • Generates 2 Anemo Elemental Particles.

    • The skill gets the base cooldown of 5 seconds if used this way.

  • Short Hold – Generates wind energy and creates up to 2 wind slashes caught within the skill’s AoE.

    • Using it this way will deal up to 3-hit Anemo damage. 2 of them are from smaller wind slashes plus 1 from a wind explosion similar to the damage done when using a quick Press (initial storm damage).

    • Once you let go of the elemental skill button, the vacuum will stop and generates an explosion of wind, knocking back small enemies in the process.

    • Generates 3 Anemo Elemental Particles.

    • Letting go of the elemental skill button quick enough will allow you to get the base cooldown of 5 seconds.

      However, letting it go too late will initiate the Long Hold animation giving it the max cooldown of 8 seconds.


  • Long Hold – Builds up a vacuum of wind energy, creating numerous wind slashes and creating storm damage at the end.

    • Using it this way will generate up to 4 more wind slashes plus storm damage.

      This deals a total of up to 8-hit Anemo damage to enemies caught within the vortex. 1 from initial storm damage, 2 from the initial wind slashes, 4 more wind slashes from when the storm grows and 1 for the final storm damage once it explodes.

    • The final storm damage will also knock back smaller enemies.

    • Generates 4 Anemo Elemental Particles.

    • Using the skill at max duration will also give it the max cooldown of 8 seconds.

The elemental skill as a whole also gets these effects:

  • With the Second Wind passive talent unlocked, defeating an enemy using this skill will regenerate 2% of your max HP for 5 seconds.

    This effect can only trigger once every 5 seconds.

  • With the 1st constellation unlocked, using the Short Hold and Long Hold attack pattern will pull enemies within a 5m radius in front of you.

  • With the 4th constellation unlocked, the Traveler will gain 10% damage reduction while using this elemental skill.

The Traveler jumps and creates a huge tornado, hurling it at the enemies and pulling everything within its path.

This elemental burst has the following effects:

  • Deals up to 9-hit Anemo Damage every 0.5 seconds.

  • If the tornado comes in contact with another element, it will absorb it and deal additional elemental damage to that same element.

    Elemental absorption can only trigger once per skill usage.

  • The tornado pulls both small enemies and nearby objects such as items or bombs from Klee’s skill.

  • With the 6th constellation unlocked, it will reduce enemies’ Anemo Resistance by 20%.

    If an elemental absorption occurs, it will also reduce the enemies’ resistance to that same element by 20%.
