Chongyun Quick TL;DR Team Comp Guide

Chongyun (ice ice baby)

Did you guys know he’s an exorcist? I didn’t LOL

Element: Cryo

Weapon: Claymore

Pros:

Consistent cryo procLow E CDLow Q CD
Low energy costEasy to gear/playDecent damage scaling
Passives have nearly 100% uptime

Cons:

Conflicts with superconductLacks AoE in abyssSomewhat reliant on constellations
Squishy

PSA #1: Majority of Chongyun’s damage is reliant on normal attacks — this can be problematic is because he doesn’t benefit from superconduct unless he never E’s, cryo is provided by only his Q, or another source. Hence why his team should be focusing on other strongsuits, rather than trying to fix a con

Who to take (alternatives explained below!):

Kaeya
  • Provides cryo resonance which gives a free 15% CRIT% buff against frozen enemies
  • Another source of consistent cryo proc’s
  • Can be geared to be a buff mule
  • CAN REPLACE WITH XIANGLING OR BENNY FOR EASY AND CONSISTENT MELT PROC
Venti
  • Professional Dyson vacuum
  • Energy orb generator (ensures Chongyun Q will always be fully charged before CD)
  • Provides extremely easy spread of cryo + hydro
  • CAN REPLACE WITH SUCROSE OR MONA FOR EASY AOE + DAMAGE BUFFS
Barbara
  • Heals are nice when you’re just bashing your claymore against enemies
  • Extremely consistent hydro proc with E + charged attack for frozen (get that free 15% CRIT%) + shatter since Chong is a claymore user
  • Straightforward to play and gear (cost efficient character)
  • CAN REPLACE WITH XINGQIU, BENNETT, OR QIQI IF YOU WANT TO REPLACE KAEYA

PSA #2: I guarantee running the cryo team bonus with a hydro user (in any variation) will get you the most mileage over taking an electro with Chongyun. Take an anemo user to spread hydro proc for permanent frozen CC + free consistent CRIT% buff. It’s unfortunate his E conflicts, but you’ve got to play the hand you’re dealt

Great flex slot alternatives:

  • Bennett – Amazing Q that heals and buffs ATK. Essential for proc’ing tons of melt, which is insanely strong
  • Xingqiu – E + Q helps keep enemies perma-frozen during Chong E, and helps lower incoming damage
  • Diona – Great alternative to another cryo if Kaeya not leveled/don’t want to use. Shields are strong and her E is spammable to provide energy to Chong
  • Mona – Taunt is amazing for keeping enemies frozen. Her Q is always a great burst addition for CC and nuke potential
  • Sucrose – If running a melt comp, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to take Sucrose to EM mule + provide TTDS buff

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK QUESTIONS BELOW! I’ll try my best to respond as I know some players may not have ANY of the characters mentioned

Hope this helped. Bye.
