Azhdaha: New weekly boss in Genshin Impact

The Phase 1 fight with Azhdaha is quite simple and easy. All of his attacks are Geo and dodging his attack is not too difficult except one and it is the earthquake attack. In the earthquake attack, Azhdaha makes groundbreaking waves that can instantly kill your character.

Luckily, you can dodge this easily with a trick. You just have to notice and get far away as possible from Azhdaha as soon as you can. He always commits these waves after he narrates his voice line in between the fight.

Phase 2 and 3 are the most difficult phase of Azhdaha to deal with. During this state, he absorbs and surrounds his surroundings with the Hydro and Electro elements. In Phase 2 he absorbs the Hydro element, while in Phase 3 he goes with the Electro element.

In his Hydro phase, the best way is to dodge the incoming Hydro attacks from him. Furthermore, you can fully dodge it if you are using a shield character. The shield character’s element is unnecessary, which implies you can use characters like Noelle, Diona, Xinyan, and Beidou.

However, in case you get in contact with his attack and get marked by his debuff, you can even use Jean’s elemental burst to remove the debuff. Azhdaha in his Electro phase deals huge Electo damage. All his attacks have tremendous damage and range. Electro Azhdaha is quite tough and very annoying. Before going to electro state, he stomps on the ground multiple times dealing huge AoE damage; hence, it would be best to keep your distance at that time.

In his Electro state, he goes under the ground and starts dealing Electro damage all over the field. Keeping your distance is not a safe bet, as sometimes you will face situations where you can’t dodge his attack at all. It would be best to take close-range fights with him during this state, and dodging his attacks becomes a lot easier. In short, using shield characters is the safest option while taking the fight with the new weekly boss.
