What Are Elements?

Dictates a Character's Damage Type

There are a total of six elements in Wuthering Waves. Each Resonator is assigned one of these six elements that dictate their damage type.

Each Resonator's attacks deal elemental damage, that means there are no neutral or physical attacks present in the game.

No Elemental Reactions

Elements Guide and Status Effects | Wuthering Waves (WuWa)|Game8 (2)

In Wuthering Waves, there are no elemental reactions to take advantage of and enemies have no elemental weaknesses to exploit.

Damage output is based solely on offensive stats like ATK, Critical Chance, Critical DMG, as well as skill multipliers.

Determines the Damage Resistance of Enemies

Elements Guide and Status Effects | Wuthering Waves (WuWa)|Game8 (3)

Some enemies are resistant to certain elements, reducing the damage they take. Other enemies are straight up immune to an element and do not take damage at all.

It's recommended to have a well-balanced team composition so you won't have problems dealing with enemies resistant or immune to specific elements.

No Bonuses for Teams With the Same Elements

Elements Guide and Status Effects | Wuthering Waves (WuWa)|Game8 (4)

Characters with the same elements on one team do not receive bonuses. When building a team, it's best to focus on having characters with multiple elements and good synergy.

Some Resonators Improve Elemental Damage Output

Some Resonators like Danjin and Aalto have Outro Skills that increase the elemental damage (Deepen) of the next character you swap into combat.

If you use such characters, build your team around them to maximize your damage output.
