Finding: Candace's infusion overrides c6 Bennett


Significance: May enable some new teams that couldn't work with c6 Bennett
Finding: Candace can't overwrite Chongyuns infusion


Significance: Infusion priority shenanigans

Finding: Candace + Chongyun infusion = frozen weapon (that does Cryo dmg)


Significance: Chongyun doesn’t quite override Candace. What may happen is that the weapon infusions trigger freeze on the weapon, which depletes both elements and leaves a frozen aura. This frozen aura is what deals Cryo dmg. This is more information on weapon infusions and can lead into questions of dumb shit like can a weapon do Cryo and hydro dmg if there is enough hydro on it (like how swirl can swirl Cryo and hydro on a frozen enemy). It’s also very cool

Finding: Interaction between Candace and Keqing infusion
(Tldr: weapon is Electrocharged but deals hydro dmg)

Clip 1.
Clip 2.
Clip 3.

(Clip 1)
After keqing cast her skill, her weapon gains purple aura as usual but she still has visual effect of Candace burst.
When using elemental sight, her weapon looks like electro infused.

(Clip 2)
Even though her weapon has appearance of electro infusion, Keqing normal attacks under Candace burst deals hydro dmg.

(Clip 3)
When applying infusions in order of “Candace burst -> Keqing skill -> Chongyun skill”. Super conduct is triggered. Indicating electro gauge is physically present (not just as a visual effect) even though it does not seem to affect damage type of attacks.

not sure if this is exactly the right place, but

Finding: Candace n4 string is able to get 12 procs of Beidou's Q pretty easily. Her Q and E timings allow for multiple variations


These combos do require a small amount of timing after the N4, since mashing LMB or dashing into an N1 will make you hit slightly too fast.

First combo: n1Q n3 E n4w n4 E n4

The start of this should work well for Candace's setup if swapping to another character. The E should be done slightly before the n3-2 connects to space out for the following n1.

Second Combo 2: n4 e n4w n4 e n4
Potential basic combo after quickswapping in. The E animation is under 1s, so it can be weaved in anywhere after a Beidou proc.

Third Combo: 4n4w

Initial proof of concept. Main takeaway is that Candace would be able to drive well when quickswapped into.

Candace might have some value in Beidou quickswap stuff
Candace Beidou Driver Combos
0:00 n1Q n3 E n4w n4 E n4
0:16 n1 E n3 Q n4 E n4w n4
0:33 4n4w

These combos do require a small amount of timing after the N4, since mashing LMB or dashing into an N1 will make you hit slightly too fast.

The start of the first combo should work well for Candace's setup before swapping to another character. The E should be done slightly before t...

Wait just for clarity of the findings: weapon infusions include elemental reactions? Do we know if stuff like artifact set bonuses trigger on said reactions? Is this ticket worthy? Who volunteers?

any c6 icd clips?
aftermathrarFri, September 30, 2022 at 10:32 AM
Finding: Candace's counter has no startup, it is active as soon as the UI greys out. However, there is a variable delay between key press and activation dependent on input delay.

Additionally, her A1 will only activate while E is held at the time of getting hit.


First vid shows that the thrown knife hits 1 frame after disappearing (can be 1 or 2 frames), then parrying the knife on the frame the UI greys out for a full counter. The effect shows up as a small white spot on the shield summon anim.

Second and third clips show that E must be held in order to activate A1. The second video is a frame 2 counter with E released, Candace performs the normal shield bash. The third clip is a frame 6 counter with E held, Candace performs the full counter version.

In order to not delay the jump animation on the full counter, the parry should be done between frames 1-5.

Somewhat related, the skill CD is higher with the perfect parry.

Better understanding of the mechanics of the parry and why sometimes it seems like the A1 failed to activate (and feels worse compared to beidou).

For non-c4 havers, knowing how to avoid getting the longer cd and animation of the full counter is very useful. Tapping very quickly will still confer the shield for the duration of the animation while not messing up rotation timings.

Candace's gauges are all 1A.
Tap E is 1A (first appeared frame 1083, disappeared 1652. Difference is 569 frames or 9.49 seconds in 60fps)
Fully-charged hold E is also 1A (frames 1988 to 2561, 573 frames or 9.55 seconds in 60fps)
Initial hit of Q is, yet again, 1A (frames 2891 to 3463, 572 frames or 9.53 seconds in 60fps)
Swapping characters while in Q is 1A (6:01 to 15:49, 9.48 seconds in 60fps) used for all frame counting, no idea why it changed numbering systems.
Significance: Better understand Candace's kit, more accurate guide writing, haha the gauge recording monke strikes again

Candace Q swap damage (Wave Impact DMG) has no icd

I've seen others test icds on anemo cube, so hopefully this is right:

Swirl numbers pop up on initial cast and each swap (number goes up cuz instructor)

Affects hydro app metering
Bobrokrot [RU] Genshin AcademyTue, October 4, 2022 at 04:53 PM
Finding: Candace hold E and Q do not snapshot.

Finding: Candace tap E creates 2 particles each time it hits an enemy
Evidence: 16 trials, no case where 2 particles are not produced
Significance: Calcs and ER stuff
Candace Tap E Particle Counts
16 trials, tap E produced 2 particles 100% of the time
Finding: Candace hold E creates 3 particles each time it hits an enemy
Evidence: 5 minutes' worth of trials, should be enough
Significance: Calcs and ER stuff
Candace Hold E Particles
I dunno exactly how many trials but this should be enough to confirm that it's always 3 hydro particles with hold E on Candace.

Finding: Candace's C6 does NOT work with teammates in coop
Teammates do not unleash any Wagtail tides at all

Significance: This means C6 is completely useless for coop, and is solely designed for single-player players who want to activate Wagtails by attack instead of switching characters

Evidence: got matched with the asia server player "kawaiigin" UID 833167462. Tested it with him
