Genshin Impact Chongyun – Introduction

Genshin Impact Chongyun is a young, energetic soul who is from an exorcist family. He is dedicated to exorcism skills and can do everything he wants. He engages himself in seeking evil spirits even without having uncommon physical strengths. Evil Spirits were heavily scared of such powerful powers. Surprisingly, he hasn’t encountered any ghost or spirit in his life.

Chongyun is also known as Chou’un in Japanese from Liyue. His birthday is on 7th September. The Constellation of Nubis Caesor followed him. Cold noodles and Mountain Delicacies is his all-time favorite dish.

And Chongyun is no different than any other character. With his outstanding sword work, he really outstands the niche of sword attacks. So here are all the talents and powers that Chongyun exhibits.


Chongyun Attacking

This attack can be categorized into three basic criteria. Normal, Charged, and Plunging attack.
Normal Attack: Chongyun can perform up to 4 consecutive strikes back to back.
Charged Attack: Consumes Stamina to throw swirling blows to nearby enemies, followed by a powerful slash. This attack is useful to deal with AoE damage.
Plunging Attack: Another famous move inspired by basic sword gameplay is the mid-air blow that takes the enemy by surprise. Upon landing, the AoE attack is generated at the ground.

Spirit Blade: Chonghua’s Layered Frost

The elemental attack is basically a periodic excess attack by any character of the game. However, this drains stamina and regenerates over a minute time period.

Chongyun attacks with his sword, causing a Cryo explosion in a circular swirl. Over a certain time period, the same Cryo attacks tun into a Chonghua Forest Field, which causes overall damage to a field of great Cryo attacks, hence leaving the enemy in the sense of absolute stun.

Spirit Blade – Cloud-parting Star

Who doesn’t love a good hand seal that can summon part of your attacks and deal with heavy damage to the enemy? The same is possible with Chongyun. He can summon 3 giant spirit blades in mid-air that explode when it hits the ground. The fundamental damage cause is Cryo damage, which launches just over the enemies and splutters them apart.

But the character doesn’t restrict the above attacks. He also has Passive Talents, which help to up the game when not in a battle or even in a battle altogether.

Passive Talent 1- Steady Breathing:

When the previously mentioned Spirit Blade Layered Forest attacks are made, it increases the Attack Speed by 8%. This effect applies to all characters carrying Swords, Claymore, or Polearm within the field of Layered Frost.

Passive Talent 2- Rimechaser Blade:

After using the spirit blades, another spirit/ghost is summoned, which strikes the nearby enemies and causes great damage in the form of Cryo Attacks. This attack deals 100% damage to Chonghua’s Layered Frost, and the enemies have their cryo resilience reduced by 10% for 8seconds.

Passive Talent 3- Gallant Journey:

When playing an expedition in the city of Liyue, the expedition’s total time is reduced to 75%.
