Genshin Impact has seven elements with different effects. Cryo is one of the most powerful elements for aggressive gameplay. Check out this ultimate guide on how to use the Genshin Impact Cryo element here.

I. Strength Of Cryo

Cryo element in Genshin Impact has many mind-blowing strong points. Take a quick review and decide whether to spend Primogems on Cyro banners or not.

#1. Powerful characters

Cryo is the coldest and strongest aggressive element in Genshin Impact. But Cryo female characters in this game are very hot. Players have many options of Cryo characters for every role in your team, from supporters to main DPS.

In addition, all of these Cryo characters are very powerful. For example, Ganyu, Eula, and Ayaka are the three most favorite characters in Spiral Abyss every season.

#2. Control ability

When the Cryo element is applied to wet enemies, it can freeze them on the battlefield. The Frozen reaction has some advantages for the characters:

  • Attack enemies without letting them respond or evade;
  • Prevent enemies from attacking your characters, especially when enemies are about to use the elemental burst.

This insane control ability protect your character and let them deal damage to enemies more accurately. Though it does not boost damage for Cryo or Hydro attacks of your characters, it lets your main DPS deal tons of DMG without losing HP.

#3. Elemental Mastery is not essential

Players can focus on ATK, Energy Recharge, or elemental DMG status without having to build the elemental mastery status for their Cryo characters. That's why you can easily have a powerful on-field DPS or sub-DPS from the list of Cryo characters.

#4. Easy to boost CRIT DMG

It's very easy to get the best artifacts to boost the CRIT Rate for Cryo characters. You only need four pieces of Blizzard Strayer from the Peak of Vindagnyr domain in the Dragonspine's Peak. This is the best artifact set for most Cryo characters.

With four pieces of this set, their CRIT rate is boosted massively. Then, their elemental bursts deal much higher elemental damage to the opponents in the range of attack.

You can build a 75% CRIT rate with the highest character level, Cryo elemental resonance, artifacts, Frozen reaction, and Rosaria as a supporter. If you have Ayaka, Eula, or Ganyu at level 80+, you can build their CRIT rate to finish the combat quickly no matter how strong the boss is.

#5. Easy to break Elemental Shield

Cryo characters can easily break the annoying elemental shields of enemies, especially the Hydro shield. But when you combine the elemental attacks of your Cryo DPS with Hydro and Anemo supporters, you can easily break those shields and blow away enemies.

II. Tips To Use Cryo

Despite many advantages of the Cryo element, it's still hard for many players to master Cryo DPS. You may need some tips to use this element effectively.

  • Don't use Eula for the CRIT Rate-buffed team.
  • Try to make enemies infected with the Cryo element before using Crit attacks.
  • It's better to freeze the opponent before releasing element bursts with your main DPS.
  • Build a full Cryo team or a Frozen team with at least one Hydro supporter.
