The Eleventh Harbinger!!

The No. 11 of the Fatui Harbinger, Tartaglia AKA Childe hails from the Sneznaya region and carries the Hydro vision with him. He is the youngest member in Fatui Habinger’s history. Tartaglia has just received 3rd re-run banner with the 2nd Phase of Version 3.2.

His re-run banner also includes the brand-new Four-Star character, Layla. In this guide, we will discuss how to build the youngest Harbinger of Gesnhin Impact to his full potential with the recommended build, artifacts, weapons, and more.

Genshin Impact Tartaglia Talents and Playstyle
Skill Talents

Skill Talent

Tartaglia is one of the most unique characters in Genshin Impact with the ability to change his long-range weapon into a melee sword and dealing Hydro Infused Damage with his normal attack. The most essential part of his kit is his Elemental Skill Foul Legacy: Raging Tide changes his weapon from Bow to melee range swords that are infused with Hydro and have a Riptide effect that deals AoE Hydro damage with an interval of 1.5 seconds. The skill has the drawback of a Long Cool Down Period if you use it for too long, but you can play around with this drawback by managing the amount of time you spend on-field with Him.

Tartaglia’s Elemental Burst, Havoc: Obliteration is also a major part of his kit that deals massive amounts of damage in small AoE. If you are on your Mele Stance then the damage will be much higher than when you are on Ranged Stance with your Bow.

When Tartaglia is in Foul Legacy: Raging Tide‘s Melee Stance, or if his Normal and Charged Attacks do CRIT DMG, they will apply the Riptide status effect on the hit enemy.


Tartaglia has access to some really strong Constellation with his C6 being the best one and C1 being the 2nd Best. His Constellation 6 makes his Elemental Skill Cooldown problem non-existent.

The 4-Piece Glad set is a strong alternative for the 4-piece HOD set and can situationally be his best in-slot artifact if you are running an elemental damage buffer like Kazuha or Candace and has low attack on him overall which Glad 4-piece can fix.
