Genshin Impact Geo

Geo is one of the seven Genshin Impact Elements and the second one the Traveler acquires. It comes with the Earth vision.

The associated Archon of this element is Morax, whose domain is Liyue.

Genshin Impact Geo Elemental Resonance

If there are two Geo characters in the same team, the Elemental Resonance of two-Geo elements appears.

Enduring Rock: Increases shield strength by 15%. Additionally, characters protected by a shield will have the following special characteristics: DMG dealt increased by 15%, and dealing DMG to enemies will decrease their Geo RES by 20% for 15s.

Genshin Impact Geo Elemental Reactions

Geo has the following Elemental Reactions with the other four elements, including Cryo, Pyro, Hydro, and Electro.

ut the reactions just come into one result – Crystallize, in all cases.

Genshin Impact Geo

Crystallize

Absorbs the element and drops a crystal of that same element. The crystal will give an elemental shield. The shield absorbs all types of damage, but it protects more efficiently against the shield’s element.

Geo has a different status, characters, and enemies.

Genshin Impact Geo Status

An applied Geo status effect on a Wooden Shieldwall Mitachurl caused by Zhongli’s Elemental Burst Planet Befall. Geo will not normally show up as a status effect on an enemy if there is no other element pre-applied to it.

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

Geo Hypostasis, as well as Stonehide Lawachurl and Large Geo Slime whilst their shields, are active have a perpetual Geo status applied to them, but it cannot react with other elements to trigger Crystallize.

Another exception exists: Zhongli’s Elemental Burst, Planet Befall, is capable of applying a persistent Geo status effect for the duration of his Petrification.

Genshin Impact Geo Construct Talents

The following Talents apply the Geo status to its user and/or the active character.

FAQs on Genshin Impact Geo Element

It is highly recommended that you use claymore weapons when fighting against the Geo Hypostasis since this type of weapon can break obstacles much faster than the rest. Some catalyst users such as Ningguang and Klee are able to deal with damage that breaks obstacles like this quickly too.

Geo is a powerful and versatile element in Genshin Impact.

However, not everything about its capabilities makes sense in the world of the game.

In Genshin Impact, players have quite a variety of different elemental skills to choose from. These include Pyro, Hydro, Cryo, Dendro, Electro, Anemo, and Geo.

Zhongli is the undisputed best Geo character in Genshin Impact, providing a huge safety net for all your teams.

His shield is unparalleled, blocking extremely high amounts of damage and even negating the need for a healer in some cases.

To obtain the Traveler’s Geo abilities, the player will need to visit a Geo Statue of the Seven. Upon interacting with the statue, the player will automatically unlock the ability to swap between Geo and Anemo abilities.

Using a Hydro-based attack or stepping in water will inflict “Wet” on the target.

A Cryo attack would then cause the Freeze chain reaction, rendering them immobile for a time.

In this one case, using a Geo attack on a Frozen target would react and cause Shatter, dealing considerable damage and ending the chain.

Unfortunately, the Geo abilities are not as useful to the Traveler as the Anemo abilities, so the Geo build focuses on raw attack damage rather than Elemental Damage or Elemental Reactions.

To change your element you’ll need to head south and unlock a Statue of the Seven — anyone will do. When you unlock the statue you’ll see an option to “Resonate with Geo,” as pictured above. This is your option to change from Anemo to Geo.

Albedo, also known as the “Kreideprinz” is a playable Geo character in Genshin Impact.

Earth

According to the lore, there are seven Genshin Impact gods, and each presides over a different elemental domain.

The elements in Genshin Impact are Pyro (fire), Geo (earth), Dendro (nature), Cryo (ice), Electro (lightning), Anemo (wind), and Hydro (water).

As a Claymore and Geo element user, Itto has the potential to steal a spot in many parties if his abilities turn out to be powerful. Here’s everything we know about his release date and abilities.

Because they are Geo Constructs, the stone pillars will only take significant damage from Claymores and other Geo attacks. Use characters like Zhongli or Noelle to quickly destroy the pillars.
