Genshin Impact Elemental Reactions & Resonance

Correctly synergising your party's elements is your key to success in Genshin Impact. It is recommended to have 2 characters of the same type, ideally your main and secondary damage dealers. This will increase their energy regeneration and damage output. Your other 2 characters should be support units that can apply other elemental debuffs with their skills for powerful elemental reactions.
