Genshin Impact elemental reactions are very useful in dealing damage to enemies. Every two elements can cause a reaction on average. Check out this Genshin Impact elemental reactions tier list to pick out the most powerful one below.

Elemental Reactions In Genshin Impact
Elemental reactions in Genshin Impact occurs when at least two elements contact.

There are eight Genshin Impact elemental combos in Genshin Impact. When you combine two elemental effects, you can get an elemental reaction. However, Genshin Impact Elemental reaction damage calculation for different combos is not the same. Therefore, many reactions are more powerful.

This is the tier list of all Elemental Reactions in Genshin Impact as well as the Genshin Impact Elemental weakness chart, from the best to the worst.

#1. Vaporize (Pyro plus Hydro)

The Vaporize reaction happens when you combine Pyro and Hydro elements. When you use Hydro plus Pyro, the Vaporize reaction causes higher damage than using Pyro plus Hydro. You can use the elemental attacks or rainy weather to apply Hydro elements on the targets. Then, release elemental skills and bursts of Pyro PDS to cause the highest elemental DMG.


  • Apply wet effect before releasing Pyro attacks. Childe and Mona's bursts can apply Hydro element to enemies on the largest AoE.
  • Make use of rain or a nearby water area, such as a river, lake, or sea.
  • It's the best one in this Genshin Impact elemental reactions tier list especially when you use high-level characters.
Childe And Mora
Childe and Mora's elemental bursts apply Hydro to enemies on the largest AoE.

#2. Melt (Pyro plus Cryo)

When the two most aggressive elements, Pyro and Cryo, are combined, the Pyro element deal double damage. The order of elements also affects the DMG it causes. If you use Pyro skills and bursts after applying the Cryo effect, the DMG will be doubled. In contrast, the elemental DMG will increase by 1.5 times when you attack with Cryo element after applying the burning effect.


  • Freeze enemy first. Then, use the Pyro bursts or slashes of Genshin Impact Diluc, Hu Tao, or Klee to take the enemies down quickly.
  • Effective in fighting off big bosses.

#3. Swirl (Anemo plus Pyro, Cryo, Electro, or Hydro)

The Anemo element is often recognized as a supporting element. When you combine it with other aggressive elements, including Pyro, Cryo, Electro, and Hydro, it can cause extra DMG to enemies. It works most effectively when countering mobs. The Anemo element helps spread the AoE of other elemental effects. The power of Swirl Reaction depends on the level of elemental mastery.


  • Use the elemental burst of Kazuha, Venti, or Jean to increase the area of effect.
  • The Swirl Reaction between Anemo and Pyro works most effectively.
Ventis Elemental Burst
Venti's elemental burst can increase the AoE of Diluc and Kaeya's burst.

#4. Superconduct (Cryo plus Electro)

Superconduct Reaction can reduce the physical resistance of enemies by up to 40%. You can use Chongyun, Razor, Keqing to deal huge physical damage in addition to elemental DMG from the reaction. When the physical resistance of enemies decreases, it's easier to defeat them with elemental skills and bursts. Without that protection shield, a big boss is also as weak as a kitten.


  • You should cause the Freeze Reaction first. Then, apply the Electro elements to attack enemies with another reaction.
  • Lisa and Fischl's burst can cause long-time reactions in a wet condition.

#5. Electro-charged (Electro plus Hydro)

Electro-charged is another aggressive elemental reaction for attacking enemies. After applying the wet effect to enemies with Hydro skills or burst or wet weather conditions, you release an Electro burst or attacks. The Electro-charged cause instant DMG shocks to opponents. It can interrupt the attack animation of enemies. Then, you can cause Overloaded or Freeze reactions then.


  • Fischl and Lisa are the two best Electro characters for this reaction.
  • Fischl's elemental skills and Lisa's elemental burst can maintain the effect for a long while.

#6. Overloaded (Electro plus Pyro)

Overloaded is also a reaction to attack. Like Swirl, the level of characters' elemental mastery also affects the DMG of this reaction. It's very useful and effective in countering mobs thanks to its great AoE damage. However, this reaction does not cause CRIT DMG. It only helps knock back enemies.


  • The combination of Xiangling with Fischl or Xiangling with Lisa can deal elemental DMG of this reaction for a long time.

#7. Crystallize (Geo plus Cryo, Hydro, Pyro, or Electro)

When the Geo element is combined with other elements, except for Anemo, it can cause Crystallize Reaction. In this elemental reaction, Geo plays the role of buffing elemental DMG of Cryo, Hydro, Pyro, or Electro. When his reaction occurs, players can create a shield from elemental shards to defend.


  • Geo plus Cryo is the best elemental combo among many elements in this Genshin Impact elemental reactions tier list.
  • The elemental skills of Noele and Diona can cause two layers of shield for better protection.
  • Ningguang can create a large AoE of Crystalize Reaction.
Geo helps buff the elemental DMG of Cryo, Hydro, Pyro, or Electro.

#8. Frozen (Hydro plus Cryo)

The Frozen Reaction occurs when two elements - Hydro and Cryo - come to contact. It can freeze the target for a while. You can also apply the Pyro or Electro attacks after freezing enemies to cause Melt or Superconduct reactions. It's the worse one in this Genshin Impact elemental reactions tier list but it's still useful.


  • Kamisato Ayaka and Ganyu are the two best Cryo characters for a larger AoE of Frozen.
  • After freezing enemies, quickly switch to a Pyro or Electro character for a more powerful elemental reaction.

Those are the best order of the Genshin Impact elemental reactions tier list. However, it also depends on your character collection and the level of your character. Characters with higher levels can cause more powerful elemental reactions. Character build also matters.
