Kazuha's Elemental Burst does a single slash, dealing AoE Anemo damage. During the process, Kazuha forms a wide field, continuously dealing Anemo damage. Any other element present within that field reacts with Anemo and deals additional damage due to Swirl reaction.

Kazuha's passive talent reduces sprinting stamina of party members by 10%. When Kazuha triggers a Swirl reaction, all party members' Elemental damage increases by 0.04% for 8s. After his 4th ascension, the passive talent 'Soumon Swordsmanship' will unlock. This passive talent increases Kazuha's plunging attack damage by 200% when performed after triggering elemental skill. This effect will take place only when Kazuha has absorbed some other element.
