Tartaglia, aka Childe, is the 11th Fatui Harbinger in Genshin Impact and is a very popular character among the playerbase. He has one of the most unique playstyles in the game which allows him to change his fighting stance between ranged and melee.

As a Hydro Bow user, he can easily use his normal and charged attacks to deliver ranged damage like other Bow users. However, his Elemental Skill changes his stance to melee for a short period of time.

In the melee stance, Childe summons blades made of pure Hydro, and his normal and charged attacks are replaced with close-ranged melee attacks. Childe is also the only character in the game with two Elemental Burst variants, one for each stance.

Considering Childe is an Attack scaling Hydro DPS, players should choose the following Main stats for his artifact set pieces:

Sands Goblet Circlet
ATK% Hydro DMG Bonus Crit Rate / Crit DMG

For the Substats, it is optimal to prioritize the following:

  • Crit Rate/Crit DMG
  • ATK%
  • Elemental Mastery
  • Energy Recharge

Players should aim for around 130% Energy Recharge for Childe. For Talents, players should prioritize leveling up:

Elemental Skill > Elemental Burst > Normal and Charged Attacks
