Charlotte Quick Character Guide

Charlotte is a Cryo character who can deal continuous damage to enemies and heal her party members.

Her Elemental Skill can be used to select targets and deal continuous Cryo DMG to opponents using “Monsieur Verite.”

Charlotte’s Elemental Burst can restore HP to all party members and creates a Newsflash Field that deals continuous Cryo DMG to enemies and restores HP to active character(s) within its AoE.

This guide is based on the Community Character Builds by the Genshin Helper Team.

Skills Overview

Normal Attack: Cool-Color Capture

Normal Attack
Taking aim at targets using Monsieur Verite, her custom Kamera, Charlotte performs up to 3 consecutive attacks, dealing Cryo DMG.

Charged Attack
Consumes a fixed amount of Stamina, and after a moment’s preparation, will deploy Monsieur Verite to deal AoE Cryo DMG.

Plunging Attack
Gathering the power of Cryo, Charlotte plunges toward the ground, dealing DMG to all opponents in her path and dealing AoE Cryo DMG upon landing.

Arkhe: Pneuma
At certain intervals, upon using a Charged Attack, Charlotte will cause a Spiritbreath Thorn to descend and pierce opponents, dealing Pneuma-aligned AoE Cryo DMG.

Elemental Skill: Framing: Freezing Point Composition

Using the keen instincts of an ace reporter, Charlotte uses her photography skills to produce different effects based on whether the ability is Tapped or Held.

Takes a snapshot using Monsieur Verite, dealing AoE Cryo DMG to opponents in front of her and applying Snappy Silhouette to a maximum of 5 opponents. During this effect’s duration, it will deal Cryo DMG to affected opponents at intervals.

Popping Monsieur Verite’s viewfinder open, Charlotte enters Composition Mode, and during this time, the viewfinder will expand as you hold until you reach a Finisher Frame state. In this state, Charlotte can move and change direction freely.
When the hold state ends, Monsieur Verite will deal Cryo DMG to all opponents locked on within the viewfinder, and apply the same Snappy Silhouette as Tap Mode does to them. If you unleash this ability only after reaching Finisher Frame, you will instead apply Focused Impression, which lasts longer and deals more DMG, although the Skill CD will be longer.
Composition Mode lasts a maximum of 15s and allows a maximum of 5 opponents to be selected.

Elemental Burst: Still Photo: Comprehensive Confirmation

Condensing ice to create The Steambird’s signature, Charlotte creates a Newsflash Field that will deal AoE Cryo DMG and restores HP for all nearby party members based on Charlotte’s ATK.
Newsflash Field
While the ability is active, Monsieur Verite will deal Cryo DMG at intervals to opponents within its AoE.
Will continuously restore HP to active character(s) within its AoE based on Charlotte’s ATK.

Ascension 1: Moment of Impact

When opponents marked by “Focused Impression” are defeated, Framing: Freezing Point Composition’s CD will be decreased by 2s. This CD decrease can be triggered 4 times every 12s.

Ascension 4: Diversified Investigation

When the party contains 1/2/3 Fontainians other than herself, Charlotte gains a 5%/10%/15% Healing Bonus. When the party contains 1/2/3 non-Fontainians, Charlotte gains a 5%/10%/15% Cryo DMG Bonus.

Passive Talent:

After activating the Special Analysis Zoom Lens, Charlotte’s “Framing: Freezing Point Composition” Hold Mode cannot trigger its original effects, but instead enables her to take photos in a rather unique manner…

C6: A Summation of Interest

This effect can be triggered once every 6s and both DMG and healing dealt in this way will be considered as having been done by Charlotte’s Elemental Burst.
