Elemental Burst is a magic-elemental version of the SPELL BREAKER power. And just like a spell breaker, it will cancel ALL spells that your hero is currently suffering from or any other player’s hero! This includes positive as well as negative status effects such as heal and poison/dot damage over time. It can even breakthrough permanent effects such as regeneration and invisibility.

Here is an example: Wizards starts the game with no elemental burst skill but has learned all spells in his spellbook (magic skills). However, he forgets to put points into Elemental Burst so he remains vulnerable to all these harmful spells. Then someone casts paralyze on him and now wizards are completely defenseless against those spells! And as you guessed, if the paralyze spell is still active and you use elemental burst on him, the paralyze effect will disappear.
Genshin Impact is unique in that it creates a magic-elemental version of the power SLOW.
This allows you to stop your enemy from using skills for a short time, giving you an advantage over them! It’s also much more effective than a spell breaker because it does not cost mana or rage and can affect all players at once, including yourself.
If being hit by this skill has saved someone’s life before… now you know why!
This skill comes with an important drawback though.
The cooldown period of Genshin’s impact is 27 seconds so use it wisely because if your opponent manages to get away after activation, he will have plenty of room to move around again. During team fight situations I recommend saving this skill for the most dangerous of opponents, especially if they have life steal or regeneration.
Another feature of Genshin Impact is that it will cancel all buffs and debuffs present on the target at the time of activation. This means your opponent can no longer hide behind his invisibility cloak and you finally get a chance to find him! Shiver!

When an elemental burst skill activates, it will check if there are any active spells or effects on the hero. If there are, those spells/effects will be removed before applying elemental damage. Simple as that! And just like spell breaker, it works on ALL players’ heroes so watch out for those pesky Ninjas with their Vanish skills or wizard’s Fire/Ice/Lighting Ball always disrupting your team fights!
Elemental Burst damage is dealt with by the INT and SPR stats of the hero. Each point of INT and SPR will add 1-4 elemental damage to melee and ranged attacks respectively. The exact amount added varies according to what level you have invested in, and it also depends on which weapon you’re using. The Firewall Staff for example does not benefit much from your Elemental Burst skill because its magic attack power is very low (2-3 elemental bursts per hit). The best weapons for abusing this mechanic should be high physical damage (especially pierce) with a small amount of magical attack such as Bone Crusher (+4 Magic Attack) or Legendary Legion Sword (+6 Physical Attack) while wearing your strongest armor. The items you should be looking for are the ones that add +1-3 to Elemental Burst only because they’re much more effective than normal “+2 magic attack” or “+5 physical attack” equipment which will not boost damage enough to make a noticeable difference in team fights. Elemental Burst is also very useful against Troll Shamans that spam their regeneration skill all day!
Do not forget that this is a magic attack though, so if your opponent has an anti-magic shield, you’d better switch to normal attacks. Against elemental casters such as wizards, remember not to let them get away from the battle so their spells are wasted on the other team. A wizard is still a formidable foe even without his magic attacks so if he tries to run away after being hit by Genshin Impact, quickly chase him down and finish him off with melee attacks!
