Melt (Cryo + Pyro)106.3%
Overload (Electro & Pyro)483.9%
Superconduct (Cryo & Electro)483.9%
Electro-Charged (Hydro & Electro)483.9%
Shattered (Frozen / Crystallize)483.9%

Does Not Directly Affect Superconduct

Although it does say that Elemental Mastery increases Superconduct damage, it does not actually increase its damage, but rather increases the debuff. The higher EM, the higher the Physical DMG debuff resistance will be.

Increases Crystallize Shield Strength

Crystallize also doesn't get an increase in damage. It does however get an increase in the shield strength of the crystal it procs.

Building Elemental Mastery - Priorities Vs ATK

Lower Priority For Main DPS

When it comes to building DPS, it's often ATK%, Elemental Damage, Crit Rate & Crit DMG that's a priority. EM should only be added to your character through Artifact sub-stat as a low priority stat.

Secondary Priority For Sub-DPS

Most Sub-DPS are made for reactions which makes building EM for them a mid-priority. Similar to main DPS, build their Crit Rate & Crit DMG first and add at least 100 to their EM for better reactions.

Sample Sub-DPS That Can Use EM

High Priority For Anemo Supports

Swirl thrives with Elemental Mastery. If you're building an Anemo sub-dps or support, focus all stats on Elemental Mastery. You don't need Crit Rate & Crit DMG since Swirl doesn't Crit anyways.
