Clorinde is a top-tier electro DPS character who specializes in utilizing the BOND OF LIFE mechanics. She is a valuable addition to any team composition and works well with Dendro characters. However, her playstyle may be challenging for certain players.

Rest assured, we will provide a comprehensive explanation of everything related to her, including top artifacts, weapons, and team compositions. Without any delay, let’s begin.

Nevertheless, we have included some additional options below.

This is the most vital aspect of Clorinde’s gameplay. Despite the detailed description of her skills, we are here to assist you in comprehending it.

Despite relying on Normal Attacks to inflict damage, her true potential lies in her Elemental Skill and Passive. Therefore, it is recommended to focus on utilizing her Elemental Skill and Burst rather than her basic attacks.

Elemental Skill
  • She activates the “Night Vigil”state, imbuing her pistol’s regular attacks with electricity.
  • Gets BOL upto 100% of her max HP. If her BOL is less than 100% (100% BOL means half of her health bar will be covered with BOL)
  • Normal attacks deal more damage and pierce through enemies when her BOL is less than or equal to 100%.
  • After using her Skill again, she is able to clear 100% BOL.
  • Skill inflicts increased damage when BOL is at least 100%.
