Spread Reaction Guide in Genshin Impact

Spread is an Elemental Reaction caused by applying Dendro onto Quicken. Once a reaction has occured, increased Dendro DMG will be dealt and the Quicken effect will remain on the enemy allowing for additional reactions to take place. It must be occasionally maintained with Electro DMG, otherwise Quicken will wear off.
