In Genshin Impact, Slimes are one of the most common common mobs that drop slime, secretions and slime concentrate required for leveling some characters and types of weapons. In this guide, you will learn how to fight these monsters, where to find them (with the best farming routes), and what exactly they are for.
How to kill slimes in Genshin Impact
< h3>Characteristics and types of slimes
In Teyvat, you can meet several varieties of slimes that differ in size (regular and large) and elements (anemo, cryo, dendro, electro, geo, pyro and hydro). Each variety has immunity to its element, that is, electro slugs, for example, do not make sense to hit with electro attacks, as well as with a certain set of attacks and movements.
At the same time, in terms of basic parameters (health, attack and protection) slimes of different elements are identical to each other. The screenshots above show the stat progression of normal and large slugs from level 1 to 100.
Below we will give tips for fighting each type of slime separately. We'll look at the larger versions right away, as they tend to have the same attacks as regular ones, plus a couple of extra moves.
These opponents perform the following attacks during battle:
- Inflatable Kick – if the player is close to the slime, then it quickly inflates to deal damage to the Anemo hero in a small area.
- Jumping Kick – if the player is far from the slime, then side of the hero and falls on him, dealing Anemo damage.
- Gusts of Wind – the slime jumps into the air, inflates and releases up to 4 air projectiles at the player, each of which deals Anemo damage.
- Final Explosion – On death, creates a gust of wind that pushes nearby characters and causes effects related to Anemo. There is also an updraft that can be used to float up.
You can instantly kill these opponents by simply shooting them while they are inflated. For this, long-range attacks or abilities that hit the area are suitable. The gif below shows the moment.
Note that these enemies are immune to Anemo damage (even when inflated), but they are equally susceptible to any other elements. You can also use them as a springboard by jumping on them right before they use Gust of Wind.
The larger versions of these monsters have two combat modes: with the flower intact and with the flower destroyed. In the first case, the slime will always have Dendro status. If you attack it with Pyro skills, you can cause the Burn reaction, in which the slime will continue to stand still and shake, trying to put out the fire.
At this stage, he can perform the following attacks:
- Ambush Leap – while burrowed (only a large red flower visible on the surface), jumps out of the ground high into the air when the character's back is turned, and then lands on the player, dealing 300% of base ATK in the form of physical area damage.
- Summon Dendro Slimes – The enemy scatters 3 seeds that grow into regular Dendro Slimes. Summoned creatures do not drop any materials, and they disappear when the summoner is killed. There can be a maximum of 6 summoned slugs at a time.
- Poison Field – The enemy creates a field around himself that damages Dendro players and continuously heals other monsters in the area.
- Poison Seeds – Shoots 3 seeds that, when they fall, create poisonous clouds that inflict the poisoned status on the character if they pass through them. If the seeds come into contact with Pyro, they will explode, causing physical damage.
If a Dendro slime burns for a long time, its flower will disappear along with the Dendro status. After that, he will begin to perform the following attacks:
- Strike – dashes towards the player, inflicting physical damage.
- Jump – jumps high into the air and then falls on the player, dealing physical damage in a small area.
Note that most Dendro slimes try to mimic plants and are not hostile towards players, so if you just walk past them, they most likely won't even attack you. If the battle still happened, then we recommend using Pyro characters in the battle.
These opponents have a Cryo shield with a strength of 8 conventional units. It takes 4 Pyro, 8 Electro, or 16 Anemo/Geo to destroy it, so if Pyro attacks take two hits to take down the shield, Anemo takes only eight. So we recommend destroying these monsters with fire or electric characters.
The enemy can restore their shield by retreating and creating an ice mist around them (deals damage). Constantly attack him to prevent him from regaining his protection. Note that this slime will be immune to Cryo attacks even after losing the shield. Unfortunately, you won't be able to drown him, as he will form ice all the time on the water.
Cryo and Hydro slimes can easily freeze your characters if they attack you at the same time. Therefore, dodge their attacks or create your own shield.
These enemies can go into Electro mode (their antenna starts to glow), in which all their attacks deal Electro damage and they are constantly under the influence of electricity, so any elemental attacks will cause different reactions. However, they are most vulnerable to Cryo and Pyro attacks.
Of course, electric attacks won't do any damage to them. In combat, they mainly use dashes and jumps, which can be easily dodged. In general, they are not very dangerous opponents.
There is also a special variety of these enemies – Mutant Electro Slime. He is able to discharge Electro Slimes that are close to him, causing them to simultaneously use a shock attack. Quite a dangerous ability if you are surrounded by electric slugs.
These opponents have a strong Geo shield and are invulnerable to Geo elements. Their shield is most effectively destroyed by two-handed sword strikes, falling attacks, explosions (Overload reaction) and Geo attacks (that is, they do not damage the slime, but destroy its shield).
In combat, these slugs can spit rocks that deal Geo damage and jump towards the player. If they lose their shield, they may try to retreat to restore their defenses, so try not to lose sight of them.
They are invulnerable to the Hydro elements and dangerous because they are able to lock the character in a bubble for a while, interrupting his attack and making him defenseless. In addition, his attacks inflict the Wet status, so when combined with Cryo Slimes, he can easily freeze the character. Therefore, we advise you to destroy them first.
The fastest way to kill them is with the help of Pyro and Cryo attacks, which will allow you to deal additional damage with Steam or simply freeze the slugs.
Resistant to fire attacks and can rekindle their own flames, giving themselves a Pyro status, making it easier for you to create powerful elemental reactions. However, in this state, the enemies become more aggressive and their attacks deal additional damage. If you hit them with Hydro (faster), Cryo, Anemo, Electro or Geo (slower) attacks, you can extinguish them.
During combat, they release up to three fireballs that deal AoE damage to Pyro, dash towards the player, and jump at them. Many attacks can be interrupted by hitting them with a Hydro element. When they die, they explode, dealing massive area damage.
Since the slime element is not marked on the map, we advise you to take a versatile team that includes characters of different elements so that you can effectively fight the enemy of any element. You can take Yun Jin into such a squad, which receives a bonus if there are multi-elemental heroes in the team. You can also gather a group where the main damage dealer will deal physical damage. The table below shows some of the most interesting unit options.

- Slime slime – drops from slimes of any level.
- Slime secretions – can drop from slimes of level 40 and above.

Where to buy slime, secretions and slime concentrate
If you are too lazy to kill slimes and you have extra money, then you can simply purchase the right amount in the Paimon store for Star Glitter. True, the number of items sold is limited.
At the Alchemy Workbench, you can create higher-level materials from less rare resources. Plus, the slime is useful for fishing.
- Fake Worm x10 = Slime Slime x1 + Berry x1
- Slime Excretion = Slime Slime x3 + 25 mora
- Slime Concentrate = Slime Extract x3 + 50 mora
This way you don't have to try to mine secretions and concentrate from slimes, since later they can be simply created. We advise you to use Sucrose when crafting these items to get additional materials.
