Deals Elemental DMG of the involved element while spreading the involved elemental status to nearby enemies.

Many Anemo characters and enemies also have the following skills:

Elemental Absorption

Absorbs an element and becomes infused with that element, dealing damage of that type. The absorbed element can trigger further reactions, including Swirl.

Displacement (Crowd Control)

The ability to displace mobs of entities by knocking them back or pulling them in. Many Anemo users especially have the ability to create Vacuum Fields that pull in enemies within a radius.

Genshin Impact Anemo Status

Similar to the Geo status, the Anemo status is ephemeral and will either react immediately with pre-applied elements, or disappear instantly after application if no other elements are applied to an enemy. 

However, the Anemo Hypostasis applies a long-lasting Anemo status to itself while its core is exposed, and unlike Persistent Geo on Geo Hypostasis and Planet Befall — it can react with other elements to trigger Swirl, albeit it has an Internal Cooldown which disallows it from activating Swirl again before a set amount of time passes.

Additionally, Jean’s Elemental Burst — Dandelion Breeze — continuously and periodically applies the Anemo status to characters that stand in the talent’s AoE Dandelion Field up until the effect’s dissipation. This Anemo status effect does not behave any differently from a normal Anemo status effect, and will disappear momentarily after application until the next periodic application occurs by the talent.
