(Check minute 4:20 to see how it works)

These are the shields that you most likely will encounter when starting your journey in Teyvat. They can’t be broken with weapons, the way to get rid of them is using the element Pyro and burning them down so you can attack your enemies with more freedom, the Overload elemental reaction also makes things faster and easier.

How does it work?

  • Make sure to have a Pyro character in your team so you can get rid of the shields.
  • Use your elemental skill as many times as needed to burn the shields.
  • If you want to use overload against enemies, remember to have Pyro and Electro characters in your team.


4. Elemental shells

Elemental shells are present in slimes, the big ones. Only Geo slimes and Cryo slimes have this type of shell of their respective element. Claymore characters can easily break them, light swords can also break them but it takes longer. Against Cryo shells, you can use the Pyro element to melt them down to make things easier.

How does it work?

  • Equip in your party a claymore user so you can break them with basic attacks easier.
  • If you have in your team a Pyro character, you’ll have an easier time against the Cryo ones.
