Swirl damage scales with Elemental Mastery. If you are building an Anemo sub-DPS or support, it is recommended to focus on raising Elemental Mastery as much as possible. Since Swirl does not CRIT, you can prioritize Energy Recharge next to Elemental Mastery.

Dendro is the latest element that has been added to the game. This element leans toward Elemental Mastery more than ATK, even for DPS characters. The raw damage of Dendro could be low but the damage output from Dendro-related reactions could easily shred enemies' HP.
