Quicken is an Elemental Reaction in Genshin Impact. Elemental Reactions are a combat mechanic in Genshin Impact. When a Playable Character inflicts an Enemy with an Element, the Enemy gains a decaying aura of that Element, which can be combined with a new compatible Elemental Aura to lead to an Elemental Reaction. This mechanic can also be used on players and objects.
Elemental Reactions can be triggered using the 7 Elements in Genshin Impact, Anemo (Wind), Geo (Earth), Electro (Lightning), Dendro (Nature), Hydro (Water), Pyro (Fire) and Cryo (Frost).
Quicken Reaction Genshin Impact
Quicken will apply a decaying Quicken Aura to the target. This aura can be used to trigger Aggravate by adding an Electro aura or trigger Spread by adding a Dendro aura. This interaction will not consume the original Quicken aura.
Aggravate and Spread will scale with Character level and Elemental Mastery, with the Base Damage of the reaction being multiplied by these variables. ATK, Crit rate, Crit DMG and any other stats besides CL and EM will not impact the damage of this reaction. However, the initial hit that trigger Aggravate or Spread still scale with Attack and Crit stats.
How to trigger Quicken Genshin Impact
Quicken can be activated by combining the Electro aura with the Dendro aura or vice versa. This can be achieved by either applying both auras with the Playable Characters in your party, or by applying Dendro/Electro to an Enemy who already has the complementary aura, such as a Electro Slime/Dendro Slime.
Quicken Various Reactions in Genshin Impact
When Electro is applied to a target with the Quicken aura, the attack that applied Electro will experience a Flat DMG Bonus.
Example: Keqing uses Starward Sword to hit targets with multiple AoE Electro Damage attacks while they have the Quicken aura, increasing the damage of all the attacks in Starward Sword (As the quicken aura is not consumed by the first attack).
When Dendro is applied to a target with the Quicken aura, the attack that applied Dendro will experience a Flat DMG Bonus.
Example: Collei uses Trump-Card Kitty to hit targets with multiple AoE Dendro Damage attacks while they have the Quicken aura, increasing the damage of all the attacks in Trump-Card Kitty (As the quicken aura is not consumed by the first attack).
