How To Use Childe (Tartaglia) ?

Recommended Rotation For Childe

Recommended Rotation
1Start with a full charge attack
2Switch to his Melee Mode
3Clean up with Elemental Burst

Uses Of Childe's Elemental Skill

Switches Childe's Attacks To Melee

Childe is the first character that can change his type of attacks with the activation of his skill. From a bow, you can switch to a melee stance to get up close and personal to your enemies.

Riptide Applied When Hitting Critical Shots

Whenever Childe crits when he attacks an enemy while in melee stance, his unique debuff Riptide will be applied to that enemy. Riptide will cause additional Hydro damage when activated.

Hydro Applied With Every Attack

Childe becomes a Hydro enabler in his melee stance since all of his normal and charge attacks will apply Hydro.

Childe's Elemental Burst

Deals Different Attack Depending On Childe's Current Stance

The type of attack Childe does when using his burst will change depending on the stance that he is currently in. Both deal just about the same amount of damage, but will either apply Riptide to enemies or cause Riptide to activate when they are hit.

High Damage Burst That Hits Multiple Enemies

Childe's Burst has a high damage output on his own and even more so when dealing Vaporize. It's one of the highest damage ceiling single hit Burst damage currently in the game!

Strengths Of Childe (Tartaglia)

Hydro Enabler & Carry

Childe is a Hydro carry and enabler. By himself, he can already deal a lot of damage, but pair him up with other characters that can proc reactions with him and you have a constant stream of damage thanks to his fast Hydro application.

Stance Makes For Exciting Gameplay

Being able to switch between two stances makes Childe's gameplay dynamic. It will take some getting used to, but being able to actively switch from long-range to short-range mode is a great benefit to a team.

Excellent At Fighting Multiple Enemies At Once

Tartaglia's Riptide allows him to deal multiple hits that will have a small AOE on the opponents. When gathered, those explosions will also deal damage on surrounding enemies making Childe highly effective at battling multiple opponents at once.

Weaknesses Of Childe (Tartaglia)

High Investment Character

Childe requires a full team of sub-dps and support to be able to show off consistent high damage numbers. You will need to not only build him, but his whole team in order to really make use of him.

Requires Strong Artifacts To Really Shine

Childe isn't one of those characters that you can leave unbuilt into battle since it's wasted potential. He may take some time to be good since there will be a lot of farming involved for his talents and artifacts.

Skill May Have High Cooldown

Depending on how long you use his Elemental Skill, Child could have as high as a 30-second cooldown for it. Juggling between his Melee stance and getting out of it will require a bit of getting used to, but it's needed to manage his cooldown.

When was the last time this site was updated. The f2p team is eh and the best team is.. good but not the best. Childe's best team is him, Xiangling, Bennet and Kazuha or Sucrose. And Skyward Harp isn't even listed as one of his best weapons, which it is, and so is Aqua Simulacra.

Anonymous 15

sorry ignore my last post, em is not good on childe because he's not the one dealing reactions, my brain broke for a moment

Anonymous 14

I would choose Stringless, anon, it gives Elemental Mastery (which isn't that bad for Childe, especially if you have him on a vap team) and its pasive is pretty nice since it boosts his Elemental Skill.

zenith 13

@ anon probably hamayumi, seems like the best substat/pas/sive combo of the bunch for him. i actually saw a childe with a hamayumi the other day, seemed to be pretty effective!
sacrifical has no effect on his skill (i was curious so i tested it).

Anonymous 12

I need help.
I currently have prototype on Chiide and i know that this bow kinda ****s but i don't have neither Rust neither money. Wich one of these bows are better for him: Stringless, Hamayumi, Favonius or Sacrifical?
