The Anemo squad is made up of the game’s coveted crowd control stars. With their unique ability to cast Swirl, they can spread other elements and cause multiple elements to react with one another within the Swirl’s vicinity.
Pyro is one of the easiest elements to use in the game because of its ability to synergize with all other elements to create powerful reactions. It’s a useful asset that can help you explore the freezing Dragonspine and quickly break down pesky Cryo shields.
