    • Instant RR (enter and exit aim mode in 1 frame): Youtube
    • Hold M1 Double CA: Youtube
  • Unlike most characters, Gorou does not keep one eye closed after ARCC (Yoimiya also does not). - BowTae#0141

Skill Mechanics

  • Gorou himself count for E buff condition. Nass008#8577
  • Gorou E and Q initial hit don't get the benefit of its own buff - Nass008#8577
  • Gorou's E is unaffected by gravity. - Aevean Leeow#1362
  • Gorou's zone has a delay before applying the buff (like Bennett's Q), the character receives the buff when the paw appears above their head - Frost--Flame#2563

Burst Mechanics

  • Gorou's Crystal Collapse damage from his Elemental Burst doesn't snapshot. Neptunya#8291
  • Gorou E and Q initial hit don't get the benefit of its own buff - Nass008#8577
  • Q initial hit (and A4 on initial hit) benefits from A1, but not Q buff, while Q collapse (and A4 on collapse) can benefit from A1 and Q buff. - MeCrush14#2271 (Stats)
  • Gorou's Q buff lingers for 2 extra seconds. - Vess#7650

Ascension Mechanics

A1: Heedless of the Wind and Weather

  • Gorou's Heedless of the Wind and Weather (A1) only scales off of base defense stat. A1 will not scale off of additional defense values gained from artifacts and/or skills. Trosalio#0420

Constellation Mechanics

C1: Rushing Hound: Swift as the Wind

  • Gorou's C1 CD eventually desyncs from his E CD, meaning you cannot proc it on every E cast. Steno#0119
  • Gorou's C1 can snapshot/Gorou's E and Q zone buff is delayed like Bennett's Q buff. To trigger C1 the character must deal geo damage while in the field, for characters with off-field abilities it just means they need to enter the zone and use the ability before going off-field. In the second half of the video Albedo/Zhongli's E were used before they received the buff, meaning they weren't considered to be in gorou's E at the time of casting. - Frost--Flame#2563

C4: Lapping Hound: Warm as Water

C6: Valiant Hound: Mountainous Fealty
