Attack Talents
Normal Attack: Cutting Torrent
Normal Attack
Perform up to 6 consecutive shots with a bow.
Charged Attack
Perform a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG.
While aiming, the power of Hydro will accumulate on the arrowhead. A arrow fully charged with the torrent will deal Hydro DMG and apply the Riptide status.
Riptide
Opponents affected by Riptide will suffer from AoE Hydro DMG effects when attacked by Tartaglia in various ways. DMG dealt in this way is considered Normal Attack DMG.
• Riptide Flash: A fully-charged Aimed Shot that hits an opponent affected by Riptide deals consecutive bouts of AoE DMG. Can occur once every 0.7s.
• Riptide Burst: Defeating an opponent affected by Riptide creates a Hydro burst that inflicts the Riptide status on nearby opponents hit.
Plunging Attack
Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
When Tartaglia is in Foul Legacy: Raging Tide's Melee Stance, he cannot perform a plunging attack.

Foul Legacy: Raging Tide
Unleashes a set of weaponry made of pure water, dealing Hydro DMG to surrounding opponents and entering Melee Stance.
In this Stance, Tartaglia's Normal and Charged Attacks are converted to Hydro DMG that cannot be overridden by any other elemental infusion and change as follows:
Normal Attack
Perform up to 6 consecutive Hydro strikes.
Charged Attack
Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash a cross slash, dealing Hydro DMG.
Riptide Slash
Hitting an opponent affected by Riptide with a melee attack unleashes a Riptide Slash that deals AoE Hydro DMG. DMG dealt in this way is considered Elemental Skill DMG, and can only occur once every 1.5s.
After 30s, or when the ability is unleashed again, this skill will end. Tartaglia will return to his Ranged Stance and this ability will enter CD. The longer Tartaglia stays in his Melee Stance, the longer the CD.
If the return to a ranged stance occurs automatically after 30s, the CD is even longer.
He chose the bow as his weapon precisely to overcome his weakness with it. But a serious fight demands that he gets serious...

Havoc: Obliteration
Performs different attacks based on what stance Tartaglia is in when casting.
Ranged Stance: Flash of Havoc
Swiftly fires a Hydro-imbued magic arrow, dealing AoE Hydro DMG and applying the Riptide status.
Returns a portion of its Energy Cost after use.
Melee Stance: Light of Obliteration
Performs a slash with a large AoE, dealing massive Hydro DMG to all surrounding opponents, which triggers Riptide Blast.
Riptide Blast
When the obliterating waters hit an opponent affected by Riptide, it clears their Riptide status and triggers a Hydro Explosion that deals AoE Hydro DMG.
DMG dealt in this way is considered Elemental Burst DMG.
Rushing waters are rarely seen in his snowy homeland. Perhaps his ability to command water is due to his understanding of just how precious it is.

About Tsaritsa
Her Royal Highness the Tsaritsa is actually a gentle soul. Too gentle, in fact, and that's why she had to harden herself. Likewise, she declared war against the whole world only because she dreams of peace. And because she made an enemy of the world, I had the chance to become acquainted with you.

Face me in person, man to man, and I'll always have a chance of beating you. Same goes if you're a deity or a monster from the abyss. But the Harbingers? They are more enamored with their intangible methods, spending their days scheming and maneuvering. This is why we cannot get along.

More About Tartaglia: IV
Comrade, a word of advice: Don't go yelling stupid things in the heat of battle. They might sound good in your head, but if you think about it, they make no sense at all. I'm talking about things like, "I'm on fire!" That's the last thing we want. Fire leaves behind nothing but ashes. And you must survive at all costs.

Character Details
Despite holding one of the most senior positions in the Fatui as one of the Eleven Harbingers, Childe very much looks like the young adult that he still is.

He is a wolf in sheep's clothing, however, for under the cheerful and confident appearance lies a deadly swordsman.

He is the youngest among the Harbingers, but one of the most dangerous among their number.

That said, Childe doesn't seem to fit in well with the others.

As a fighter first and foremost, he is quite at odds with this organization of deceit and treachery.
Character Story 1
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 2
As the youngest Harbinger in the history of the Fatui, Childe is hardly bound by convention, and plays by his own rules accordingly.

Though this lone wolf is not so well-received by his peers and is also at odds with their methods, his cavalier demeanor hides a responsible, watertight meticulousness.

He is a proud man of his word. Even if the promise he makes is absurd, he will never break it.

Be it exterminating all the dragons inside their lairs, venturing into a domain of extreme danger, or single-handedly overthrowing the territory of a nobleman...

He not only keeps his promises, but does so with finesse and surgical precision. As the Harbingers' vanguard, Childe always appears in the vulnerable underbellies of Snezhnaya's enemy states, striking as a conflict is about to erupt.
Character Story 2
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 3
Many myths in Snezhnaya say that Tartaglia has been on the battlefield since he was 14 years old.

Oddly enough, at that young age he already seemed to be a skilled slaughterer with mastery of many forms of martial arts.

But more terrifying than his skill in combat was his passion for it.

Perilous battles would only excite him, and terrifying foes would exhilarate him all the more.

Childe's arrogance and conceit are derived from honing himself across countless battles, and from unmatched combat experience.

On the other hand, because they fret about the way his quarrelsome personality tends to invite unwanted trouble, the other Harbingers constantly try to get him sent on missions to places as far from Snezhnaya as possible, so that they can avoid the fallout.

The man is incomprehensibly ever in the eye of the storm, and these unusual experiences have also made him quite the show-off who revels in the praise of others.

Unlike other members of the Harbingers, who prefer to keep a low profile, Tartaglia will often go to watch public performances — occasionally even becoming part of the show himself.
Character Story 3
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 4
Ice fishing has been one of Tartaglia's hobbies since childhood.

In those days, he was known neither by the names Tartaglia nor "Childe," as the Fatui call him, but as Ajax, named by his father after some hero's tale. He and his father would cut holes open upon frozen lakes before sitting beside them and tending to their fishing lines.

This was no easy task, and would sometimes take the entire morning.

But whether it was chiseling away at the thick ice or the long waits in between catches, he was always accompanied by his father's unending tales of adventure.

These were stories of his father's adventures from when he was young, and they became the future that Tartaglia secretly envisioned for himself.

So he would pay close attention, putting himself into the shoes of the protagonist of those tales, immersing himself fully in them even as they waited for a fish to bite.

Even after leaving home, Ajax, later to be known as "Childe" Tartaglia, would keep up that hobby of his.

No longer accompanied by the stories of bygone days, fishing instead became an opportunity to train — to hone his endurance, and reflect on combat techniques.

Such long periods of meditation to refine his skills swiftly relegated the question of a successful catch to irrelevance.
Character Story 4
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 5
Unlike what the rest of the world may think, Tartaglia was not born with his exceptional skills in battle.

But he would never speak to anyone about that critical, fateful encounter of his...

When he was 14, he fled his monotonous life at home with nothing but a shortsword and a bag of bread in hand.

That 14-year-old boy got lost in the snowy forest.

Pursued by bears and wolf packs, he lost his footing and fell into a bottomless crack in the earth's surface.

There, he witnessed the endless possibilities of another ancient world. There, he would meet a mysterious swordswoman...

Or perhaps one should say that this dark realm had sensed the burning ambition in this boy's heart.

This darkness was something that the Harbinger Childe could never again delve into.

In those three months, the swordswoman taught Tartaglia how to pass through the Abyss unhindered, and more importantly, nurtured the ability to stir up endless havoc from within Ajax's trouble-mongering nature.

No one knew what happened within that darkness during those three months, nor would Ajax ever speak of this to anyone.

When his worried mother and sisters finally found him in that forest, only 3 days had passed in this world.

Thus did Ajax's first adventure end, with his now-rusty shortsword in hand.

This would mark the end of his youth and the beginning of his days as a warrior.
Character Story 5
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 6
By the time he returned home, the young man was no longer the same.

He was no longer frightened and hesitant but had become frivolous and confident. He acted as if this world revolved around him, and as if battle existed for his sake.

Conflict often brings about change, and this capricious, incalculable change attracted Ajax like a revolving kaleidoscope.

In the eyes of his father, that third son that he had so worried about had changed for the worse, bringing much uncalled-for havoc to the seaside village of Morepesok.

Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that Ajax had become a nexus of strife, for no matter where he went, fights and squabbles would follow — and he reveled in it.

Ultimately, after a huge brawl was pacified with some difficulty and with some near-fatal misses, his father had no choice but to hand his beloved son over for conscription into the Fatui.

He hoped that the strict military training of the Fatui could hone his son's temper, but wound up watching fully-armed troops getting the stuffing beaten out of them by a mere child.

This was a great disappointment to his father, but it also caught the attention of Pulcinella, the 5th Harbinger.

Shocked by Ajax's great strength and curious about how he invariably became the eye of a vortex of discord, Pulcinella inducted Ajax into the Fatui under the pretext of meting out punishment, ordering him to start from the bottom and take up the duty of serving the Tsaritsa.

His insatiable desire for conquest would thus be constantly satiated in fighting for the Fatui, and his ever-burgeoning ego would gorge upon the elation of vanquishing mighty foes...

Until at last, Ajax was chosen to be one of the Fatui Harbingers, donning the mantle of "Childe" Tartaglia and becoming one of the most powerful people in Snezhnaya.

But becoming Tartaglia was far from his end goal. To someone who sought to conquer the world, this was but a tiny step in his journey.
Tartaglia's Letters to Home
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 4
"Dearest Sister, are you all keeping well at home? Has the old man's headache gotten any better?

Please send my regards to our parents and our siblings.

I've sent some wind chill medication over from Liyue Harbor. It's very effective, and will probably keep him from nagging for a while. It should reach you after a few days.

Apart from our father's affairs, I naturally haven't forgotten about gifts for you all.

This letter should come with two kites from Liyue, a rattle drum, two porcelain dolls from Inazuma, and a crate full of various snacks.

And please break it to Anthon that the residents of Liyue are just boring old ordinary humans, like us.

They're not made of stone, and they don't even eat stones.

Do not fret for my sake, Tonia, and refrain from making trouble for anyone at home. I will be home soon. When I have seized the seven stars of Liyue and laid them at the feet of Her Majesty the Tsaritsa, I will take the first ship home, just as I promised — and you know how I always keep my promises.

Yours faithfully, Your loyal knight."
Delusion
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 6
Tartaglia's Delusion is his old badge of honor and the proof of his strength.

He still remembers with perfect clarity the day when he received his Delusion and ascended to become a member of the Harbingers.

As he stood before the cold, stern Tsaritsa, The Jester, the very first of the Fatui, personally pinned this insignia onto him.

It was his reward for slaying many terrible beasts, and a memento of countless battles.

But it was not this that brought Tartaglia joy, for honor is the natural reward of the warrior.

Nor did he pay any mind to the odd looks his new "colleagues" gave him, for the opinions and bellyaches of others meant nothing to him.

The sight of the Tsaritsa on her lofty throne alone stirred the young man's heart with respect and admiration, not merely because she opened the way for him to find an abundance of looming battles, but also because of the way she looked upon him.

Her gaze was cold but pure, arrogant yet sharp.

She was not only the sacrosanct Cryo Archon but also a true warrior.

Thus did Childe, having received his Delusion, swear an oath of fealty to the one and only Tsaritsa of Snezhnaya.

    During Xiao’s banner I got him(I also got the PJWS on the standard banner which is nice), and the 10 pull right after I got Diluc(this was during Keqing’s banner), meaning I had a guaranteed Hu Tao. After that I waited for Childe, I won the 50/50 and got Mr. Fatui.

    That’s because Childe is technically not made to be a main dps of his teams. He is mostly a subdps that enables high off-field dmg. His fast aoe attack speed helps amplify OFF-FIELD DPS so technically your main dps on childe teams are either xiangling, fisch and beidou while childe as A CARRY stays on the field. His constellations are just qol. C1 and C6 are literally the most overrated constellations and not needed at all if you are using your brain and know how to play him. Even if they release “pyro xiangqiu” its not gonna make any difference because of cooldowns between melt and vape reactions.

    Dumb question, why freedom as his talent up material if he’s not from Mondstadt? Just curious, I noticed all characters have their talent materials from the place they hail from, Snezhnaya isn’t out yet, so it’s understandable he can’t use Snezhnaya talent up materials, but why Mondstadt’s one? He was introduced in Liyue arc after all… This is sus, maybe he has something to do with Mondstadt? Maybe Varka?

      I think it’s because of his personality/lore. He likes to do things by his own rules and are even at odds with his own organization, the Fatui Harbingers. That’s why the other Harbingers always sent him to missions as far away from Snezhnaya as possbile, to avoid him falling out with the other members..

    Idk man, compared to the recent 5*s, dude looks… weak as a main dps. Ascension bonus doesn’t support the best stats in game (C.rate/DMG; so you have to hunt those stats on artifacts. Good luck wasting 9999 resins to get the perfect set!), long CD that starts AFTER you use your skill, C1 only offers 20% CD decrease (really? At max, that’s like 9 secs out of 45. That’s still a 36-secs of downtime. Hu Tao or Ganyu already killed 2 ruin hunters by then), bad C2, and his f2p weapon options are not that great. Hydro resonance is geared toward healer too, so again, idk man… Still gonna pull on his banner because of Rosaria tho…

      Who the heck uses childes full cooldown, using the heart of depth bonus I use his melee for 15 seconds. After that I either use his charge attacks or I pop my supports skills soon after my melee will be ready to use again. His ult also has extremely high scaling and you can use it often when you are running him alongside Xingqui. He is very viable as a dps, he may not compare to ganyu or xiao but he is one of the funnest characters Ive ever used (and still use).

        That sentence just proved his/her point.
        Ever since I got Ganyu and Hu Tao, I don’t use Childe anymore. Manually counting CD in your head is annoying. Was thinking to get Childe to C1, but after I read the top comment above, I gotta agree with him/her. Childe need some buff.

          do note that Ganyu, Xiao and HuTao all have their own TAILOR-MADE weapon (Amos Bow, Jade Spear, Homa).
          The current abyss meta is also tailor-made specifically for HuTao.
          There is also still no ‘Pyro Xingqiu’ to support auto-attack Childe.

          Auto-attack Childe has always been not viable to play at C0 since his 1.1 release anyways, unless you have C6 like Tectone.
          At C0, most people build him as one-shot nuker to clear abyss/domains in less than 3~7 seconds 🙂

            Pyro Xingqui would only help for hitting consistent melt reactions since hydro is the element that procs the 200% vaporize as opposed to the 150% when proccing vaporize with Pyro. The reason why Xingqui works well with Pyro dps’ is because of how the application of the elements work. After proccing a vaporize with hydro, it takes a longer time for pyro to reapply before you can proc another hydro vaporize. On the other hand, when proccing a vaporize with pyro, hydro can instantly be reapplied. Basically, if the element proccing the melt/vaporize is the one that does 150%, then the other element can be reapplied easily for another reaction. This is why a pyro Xingqui won’t be good for Childe.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkeXY0kI5RM&t=308s
            Check out this video and skip to 4:20.
            In the vid you can see that when using a melt comp with a pyro dps(200% dmg on melt), pyro is almost always on the boss which is bad since cryo will almost always be proccing the melt. But when using the vap comp(150% on vap), hydro is consistently applied on the boss since thats the nature of the reaction.

            I really do hope Childe does get his own tailored weapon when we get to Snezhnaya. Homa is just outright broken lol.

            childe teams are actually the highest dps teams rn, as you get higher in abyss it favors quickswap teams(childe teams) over a hypercarry team. Though to get to these heights of dps childe needs a lot more investment than most, but if you do invest in him enough he becomes the #1 dps for abyss

      That is because he is not made to be a main dps. He is a main carry because he stays on the field but he is just a subdps. His fast aoe hydro attacks enables great OFF-FIELD damage. Resulting on amplifying xiangling, fischl or beidou so technically they are your main dps since they are the main source of damage. What Childe do is just apply hydro while dealing damage for them. C1 and C6 are literally the most overrated and not constellation, if they said it makes a significant difference they are lying. They are just quality of life, there wont be any change in role. He is still a subdps main carry that allows you make mistakes without messing up rotations.

      Unfortunately, none of the f2p craftable weapons are good for him. Prototype Crescent relies on charged shots which he almost never uses (not to mention the weak spot thing) and Compound bow might have been viable if not for that disgusting Physical DMG substat. Rust is his best four star option but if you don’t have it then its the old Blackcliff Longbow for you. If you don’t have enough starglitter for that then you can use any other 4* bow that isn’t Favonius Bow but be aware that ithey will be miles behind the options I have already recommended .
