Strengths

  • Elemental skill can be used repeatedly for up to 3 times and it immediately goes on cooldown upon using the 1st strikes.

  • Very high base attack.

  • Very low elemental burst energy cost.

  • One of the highest normal attack scaling.

  • Being a Pyro character, he got access to elemental reactions such as Vaporize, Melt and Overload.

  • Elemental burst infuses his attack with Pyro for a few seconds after casting.

Weaknesses

  • Elemental burst instant burst damage is not very high.

  • Slow attack speed.

  • Being a 5-star character, very difficult to upgrade the constellation.

Elemental Skill: Searing Onslaught

Diluc using elemental skill on hilichurls.
Cooldown:10 seconds
Energy Generation2 Pyro Elemental Particles Per Skill Charge (Total of 6)

Performs a forward slash that deals Pyro damage.

This skill has the following characteristics:

  • This skill has 3 charges that can be used consecutively or mixed in at most, 3 normal attacks in between each charge.
  • You cannot unleash the 2nd strike if you do not use it within 4 seconds after casting the 1st strike. The same thing applies between the 2nd and 3rd strikes.
  • However, this skill will immediately enter its cooldown upon casting the first hit regardless if you unleash the 2nd or 3rd strike.

    This makes the effective recast time of this skill 5 seconds or lower if you use all 3 charges while mixing normal attacks within your skill sequence.
  • With the 4th constellation unlocked, the 2nd or 3rd charge will gain an additional 40% damage when cast within 2 seconds from the first strike.
  • With the 6th constellation unlocked, this elemental skill will not interrupt the normal attack combo.

    This will potentially add to the overall DPS since you can take advantage of the normal attack’s increased damage percentage as the combo progress.

Elemental Burst: Dawn

Diluc using elemental burst on hilichurls.
Cooldown:12 seconds
Energy Cost:40 Energy
Enchantment Duration:8 seconds

Releases intense flames to knock nearby enemies back, dealing Pyro damage. The flames then converge into the weapon, summoning a Phoenix that flies forward and deals massive Pyro damage to all enemies in its path.

The Phoenix explodes upon reaching its destination, causing a large amount of AoE Pyro damage. The searing flames that run down his blade cause Diluc’s Normal and Charged Attacks to deal Pyro damage for a time.

In summary, the skill has these effects:

  • Diluc will knock back all enemies in front of him during the initial animation of the burst.
  • Diluc will deal a high slashing Pyro damage once the flames converge into a phoenix.
  • Once the Diluc hurls the Phoenix towards the enemies, it will deal multiple Pyro damages on all enemies on its path.
  • The Phoenix will deal high final AoE explosion damage once it reaches its destination.
  • Diluc will then gain a Pyro enchantment on his weapon for a few seconds. This enchantment cannot be overridden with any other enchantment skills.
  • With the Blessing of Phoenix passive talent unlocked, the Pyro enchantment duration will last 4 seconds longer. He will also gain 20% more Pyro damage during the enchantment duration.
