While the Elemental system in Wuthering Waves may sound similar to that of Genshin Impact, there are some differences. For one, Elements do not react with each other in the same sense as in Genshin.

In this guide, we’ll be explaining how the Elemental System in Wuthering Waves works, including their unique take on Reactions.

Elemental Reaction System Explained

There are a total of 6 different elements in Wuthering Waves. Each character has an element or attribute assigned to them, and this dictates the type of damage they deal in combat. These elements are:

  • Fusion – Fire
  • Glacio – Ice
  • Electro – Electric
  • Aero – Air
  • Havoc – Dark/Chaos
  • Spectro – Light

Each playable character in the game has an element attached to them. But, most importantly, so do enemies. The main Reaction you will find in Wuthering Waves is when a character is fighting an enemy with the same element type. An enemy can resist damage from its own element type. In other words, a Glacio-type enemy will resist Glacio damage, and so on.

Intro and Outro Skills

In place of the Elemental Reactions you might find in other gacha games like Genshin Impact, Wuthering Waves uses Intro and Outro Skills. These are triggered by switching between Resonators while in combat. To do this, you need to fill up your Concerto meter, located at the bottom of the screen.

Your characters will gain Concerto Energy by dealing damage and using Dodges in combat. Once the meter is filled, the other Resonators’ icons will light up, indicating that switching to one will trigger an Intro and Outro Skill.

Once you’ve switched to a new Resonator while your Concerto meter is full, it will trigger your current character’s Outro. When finished, your newly selected character’s Intro Skill will play out.

Since each Resonator’s skills are unique to them, it’s important to use them strategically. For instance, a support character’s Outro skill may provide additional healing, while a DPS character’s Intro may deal extra damage. Figuring out which strategies work best is all part of the fun!
