'Genshin Impact': Childe Tartaglia
Among the four new characters is a five-star unit, Childe Tartaglia. Born as a warrior, Childe Tartaglia has exemplary skills as showcased in the newest video from Collected Miscellany.
According to Siliconera, Tartaglia is a Master of Weaponry Expedition. His Cutting Torrent normal attack is one level higher than others involving a six-hit combo using his ranged-archer, which can be charged for a single shot with a reticle for better aiming as well as a shot with the Riptide effect and Hydro elemental energy.
When using Tartaglia's Foul Legacy: Raging Tide Elemental Skill, from a ranged attacker, he will switch to a melee with two daggers while you still get a six-combo attack with the Riptide effect, a charged attack, and Hydro damage. Then,you can return to ranged character after pressing the trigger again or switching to another character with a 20-second cooldown period.
This also occurs on his Elemental Burst which also gets different effects depending if Tartaglia is in a melee or ranged persona.
