Why building physical damage dealers is an arduous task?

In miHoYo’s life simulator game, elements play a very important role. There are a total of seven elements: Pyro, Hydro, Dendro, Cryo, Electro, Anemo, and Geo in the game. Each character belongs to a unique element and with distinct elements you can produce different elemental reactions.

There are several elemental reactions in the game, like Melt, Vaporize, Burning, Super-Conduct, and much more. Moreover, Melt and Vaporize are considered the best elemental reactions among others as they provide tremendous damage. Elemental reactions deal so much damage that building a physical damage dealer becomes a laborious task.

Furthermore, characters can deal more damage because of elemental reactions as compared to physical damage dealers. Until now players prefer to use Beidou, Razor, Keqing, and Physical Fischl as physical damage dealers. The reason being the Electro element can trigger super-conduct reaction which reduces enemies’ physical resistance by 40%.
