Snapshot & Dynamic

Snapshot & Dynamic

Snapshot and Dynamic are properties assigned to Elemental Skills and Bursts that last over time. Talents that snapshot use the character's stats when cast, and will continue to use those stats regardless of buffs gained or lost in that timeframe after it is cast.

Dynamic talents continuously update their damage calculations based on the character's stats in real time.

Healing effects also snapshot based on the user's stats at the time of activation.

In general, stats that are not in a character's "Details" page do not snapshot. However, the exception is that "Increases All DMG" effects do snapshot, except for the exceptions to this exception: Alley Hunter, Fading Twilight, and Geo Resonance don't snapshot their "Increases All DMG".

Another exception is that Ganyu's A1 "snapshots", because the Frostflake Arrow generated when A1 is active is a completely different internal object than the Frostflake Arrow generated when A1 is inactive. (Additionally, it's not just CA CRIT Rate, because her uncharged CAs don't get the 20% CR buff).


Static Buffs either do not scale off any attribute or snapshots the attribute the buff scales off at cast time.

Dynamic Buffs update according to the attribute the buff scales off.

Direct Buffs do not change the stats of the character, and instead directly affect the damage output of the character after a snapshotting Skill/Burst is cast. These buffs include:

Dynamic Transformative Reactions

Transformative Reactions do not snapshot EM as of patch 1.4. Even if a Skill snapshots, their EM will update real time.
Transformative Reactions include: Overload, Superconduct, Electro-Charged, Shatter, Swirl, and Crystallize.

Fischl summons Oz outside of Bennett's Burst. Oz deals 920 Electro damage and 1870 on Overloads. Sucrose shares EM with Fischl and Fischl steps into Bennett's Burst. Oz still deals 920 Electro damage, but Overload damage has been increased to 1900.
