Chongyun Character Overview & Evaluation
Powerful Claymore User
Chongyun's main weapon is the Claymore, meaning he can deal large damage while also temporarily making enemies recoil back. The 2nd to 4th parts of his basic attack combo are what cause enemies to flinch, so make sure not to miss those!
Inflicts Cryo Status And Deals Huge Damage
Chongyun's Elemental Skill will inflict enemies with the Cryo status, making them ripe for an elemental reaction using Electro abilities. This will lower their defenses, making your basic attacks do even more damage!Check Out More On Elemental Combos Here
Chongyun - Best Build & Weapon
Recommended Artifact Set Bonus
|Gladiator's Finale||2-Piece: ATK +18%|
4-Piece: Characters equipping this set who use a Sword, Claymore, or Polearm gain +35% increased regular attack damage.
|Resolution of Sojourner||2-Piece: ATK +18%|
4-Piece: Increases Charged Attack CRIT Rate by 30%.
Gladiator's 4 Set Is Best
Chongyun benefits most not from upping Elemental damage, but from increasing the potency of his powerful Claymore attacks. The Gladiator's Finale 4-piece bonus is ideal for this.
Use Sojourner Early On
If you still don't have the Gladiator's set, you can use the Resolution of Sojourner or Brave Heart sets in the meantime, as they also buff your ATK.Check Out A List Of Artifacts Here

Chongyun - Voice Actor & Profile
Basic Info & Voice Actor
|Claymore||How To Get|
|Voice Actor (EN)|
|Voice Actor (JA)|
Throughout its long history, Liyue has never had a lack of rumors and myths regarding all manner of evil spirits and demons.
And regardless of the truth of such rumors, someone has to do something about them.
Chongyun was born into a renowned family of exorcists, and has possessed a natural ability to drive away evil spirits from a young age due to his congenital positivity.
His powers of exorcism are far beyond the norm; his mere presence is sufficient to scatter evil spirits.
However, this has proven to be an inconvenience for Chongyun himself, for though he has undertaken hundreds of exorcism, he has never come face-to-face with a single ghost or demon.
Chongyun believes in his heart that a true exorcist should exorcize evil with charms and swordsmanship.
This natural ability that he has... is just not orthodox.
Therefore, he has dedicated himself to the study of exorcism techniques and martial arts, as well as seeking haunts of evil spirits to prove himself an able and professional exorcist even without his unique physical condition.
Yet when that condition stop being a stumbling block on his path to self-realization?
