Chongyun Best Team Comp

Best Party For Chongyun

Chongyun is possibly one of the best Cryo characters right now. Although his one downside is shifting all Physical Damage to Cryo damage when he uses his Elemental Burst

Premium Team

- Chongyun will be the starter point of all combos as he needs to apply Cryo first to get the most out of Melt.
- Klee works well with Chongyun as she can cause melt and since she doesn't use any Physical Damage attacks, she will not be affected by Chongyun's passive
- Venti can group enemies to make it easier to pull off the elemental combos. With a relatively fast Eneergy Recharge, he can keep his Elemental Burst up almost immediately.
- During times when other skills are on cooldown, having Fischl's Oz will be a great way to deal damage. It can cause either Overload or Superconduct which lowers Physical Damage Resistance. Best when Chongyun isn't using his Elemental Burst
Character Substitutes
KleeKlee YanfeiYanfei - Yanfei can easily cause melt with her normal and charged attacks. Same with Klee, she does not use any Physical Damage attacks
VentiVentiSucroseSucrose - Sucrose works in the same way as Venti when it comes to grouping up enemies. Since her skill is on the floor, it makes it easier for her team to hit enemies.
FischlFischlHu TaoHu Tao- Hu Tao's Elemental Burst is amazing when it can hit melt with multiple enemies. An easy feat when playing with Chongyun

Free To Play Friendly Party

- Chongyun's role is to consistently apply Cryo to enemies. He can then do even more damage by attacking them with his weapon when his Elemental Burst is up
- Amber's taunt is valuable to keep enemies at a point, while her normal and Elemental Burst can quickly apply Pyro to enemies
- Xiangling's Gouba out on the field is also a must for Pyro damage. Her and Amber can provide the team with the Pyro Resonance Attack buff
- Diona's easily spreads Cryo and also work well with Chongyun. Together they will have Cryo Resonance for added CRIT Rate to the party

How To Use Chongyun ?

Recommended Rotation For Chongyun

Recommended Rotation
1Use Elemental Skill to place down Cryo Infusion
2Use Elemental Burst when in need of quick Cryo burst damage

Uses Of Chongyun's Elemental Skill

Infuse Characters With Cryo Infusion

Those wielding a Sword, Claymore, or Polearm will get Cryo Infusion when staying inside Chongyun's ELemental Skill. You can use this for easy Cryo elemental reaction combos and since it's an on-field ability, it can be used to the advantage of your main DPS.

Uses Of Chongyun's Elemental Burst

Quick Burst Of Cryo Damage

Chonyun's Elemental Burst doesn't necessarily have other effects besides damaging enemies with Cryo. You can use this whenever it's available or a set up for Cryo reactions when Chongyun's Skill is down.

Strengths Of Chongyun

Great Cryo Applicator

Chongyun's Elemental Skill allows for continues application of Cryo damage. Since it will infuse all normal attacks by melee weapons, it has quite a high Cryo application depending on the character inside the field.

Can Work Well With Melt/Freeze Comps

Chongyun's Kit is one of the best when it comes to elemental reactions concerning Cryo. Due to the Elemental Skill being on-field, it can be taken advantage of higher damage dealing main supports for stronger elemental reactions.

Weaknesses Of Chongyun

Not A Versatile Hero

You will be building a team around Chongyun's Ability to get the most out of it. This greatly limits the characters he can work with, especially any Physical Damage main DPS.

Affiliation: Liyue
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?

Chongyun Story Overview

An Exorcist From Liyue

Chongyun was born to a family of Exorcist who has practiced the Art of Exorcism for so many generations. As a disciplined and dedicated exorcist, he pledged to exorcise all the evil by using all the ability he had.

He Loves Inazuman Cuisine

In one of his voicelines, he stated that the authentic Inazuman meal makes him happier, just by eating and enjoying the nice Inazuman food after his training really takes his exhaustion away.

Voicelines About Chongyun

Voicelines About Chongyun
Hu TaoHu TaoAll yang and no yin? Who knew such people existed in this world.
XianglingXianglingChongyun? I always see him on his way to eat at Wanmin Restaurant with Xingqiu... Ah... or perhaps I should say I see him being dragged there by Xingqiu? Chongyun doesn't eat hot food. Every time the hot food arrives, Xingqiu politely apologizes and proceeds to try every dish. I just wanna dig in with him! The look on Chongyun's face is priceless. They're quite interesting, those two.
XingqiuXingqiuAh, dear Chongyun. Though he understands me quite well, one has to exercise caution when teaming up with him to go on a quest. He is making good progress in the martial arts, but I would say he hasn't quite internalized the chivalric code yet... He needs more practice. Especially at eating spicy food.
XinyanXinyanHe's one interesting guy. He looks introverted enough, but there was this one time when he came to one of my performances. A friend brought him or something, and he had some words for me, but I couldn't hear 'em over the music. Before I knew it, he was right up there on the stage with me, singing and rockin' his heart out. Guess you really can't judge a book by its cover!
