What are attributes in Wuthering Waves?

Attributes in Wuthering Waves are more like Pokemon types than Genshin Impact’s elements. When you head into battles, the bosses will have certain resistances and weaknesses based on attributes and this should be a key factor as you pick your team.

Attributes also have a major impact on the playstyle of the character. The Resonance Liberation attacks that can be executed after the Resonance gauge fills up are also based on the attribute.

Are there elemental reactions in Wuthering Waves like Genshin Impact?

No, attributes don’t react with each other in Wuthering Waves like elements combine to create reactions in Genshin Impact. The combat in the game is more about testing your mechanical skills and you’ll be expected to master parrying as well as attack timing.
