How Strong is Zhongli Buff? This is the explanation!

The news of the disappointment with Zhongli’s character, who is considered less strong, seems to have been tackled by miHoYo as the developer. And soon after, it was reported that Zhongli would be on the Buff.

At the beginning of the release, miHoYo had talked about how this character was plotted as support, not the DPS like most people want.

But in the latest update, the Zhongli Buff news will make him an Overpower.

There are four solutions prepared for Zhongli in the update which will be tested in the 1.3 beta test.

The four solutions are Zhongli Talent Strengthening, optimizing skills and mechanisms, strengthening the Geo element resonance mechanism, and adjusting the Geo elemental shield effect.

However miHoYo explained that this is not the last. Everything will still be tested and all input from players is also considered.

For Zhongli

Passive Talent Adjustment “Dominance of Earth”

Previous effects:

Planet Befall deals an additional DMG of 33% from Zhongli’s Max HP.

Effects after adjustment:

The DMG from the following Zhongli attacks increases based on his Max HP, namely:

  • There is an increase in DMG Normal Attack, Charged Attack, and Plunging Attack: 1.39% of Max HP.

  • Increase Rock DMG / Dominus Lapidis Resonance: 1.9% of Max HP
Zhongli Buff 2

  • Planet Befall’s DMG Increase: 33% of Max HP.

So in the update that is currently being tested, not only Planet Befall but all the damage from Zhongli is increased by the stats mentioned above.

Adjustment of the effect of holding down the “Dominus Lapidis” button:

* After adjustment, the character’s resistance to interruptions effect increases when holding down the “Dominus Lapidis” button.

For Geo Element

Geo Resonance Adjustment (Enduring Rock):

Previous effects:

Increase immunity to interference. When protected by a shield, increases 15% DMG.

Effects after adjustment:

Increases 15% Shield Strength. Also, the character that is under shield protection will have the following characteristics: Increases 15% DMG; When a character deals DMG to an enemy, will reduce the enemy’s Geo RES by 20%, lasts for 15 seconds.

Geo Shield Adjustment:

Geo Shield, which originally had a “shield defense effect 250% more effective against Geo DMG”, was adjusted to “Shield Defense 150% more effective against all types of Elemental DMG and Physical DMG”.

The effects that are affected by this change include:

  • First the Geo Shield created by Elemental Skill Zhongli;
  • The two Geo Shields created by Noelle’s Elemental Skill;
  • The three Geo Shields created when taking Elemental Shards from Geovishap Hatchling’s Crystallize effect.

This change is also good news for Geo because the Buff given makes Geo’s elements even tanker again but also has extraordinary damage.

That’s the news regarding Zhongli Buff and Geo Element, which also get their adjustments. What do you think? Is this the sign of a new META for Genshin Impact?
