Basic elemental skill (E): Dominus Lapidis (Tap)
Zhongli can summon a climbable stone monolith on the battlefield when you tap the ability once. It will deal AOE Geo damage to the enemies nearby, and the monolith can also block projectiles. Only one such monolith can exist at a time, while additional Geo constructs on the battlefield will empower its AOE damage.

Basic elemental skill(E): Dominus Lapidis (Hold)
Adding more layers to Zhongli’s kit, the basic ability can do a lot more than just summoning a stone Monolith. Holding the (E) key down will cause Geo energies in the environment to explode, granting a jade shield that can absorb damage.
The jade shield’s damage absorption scales with Zhongli’s maximum HP, granting a 250% Geo damage absorption buff, while also dealing AOE damage. Not just that, it can also drain Geo energy from 2 random Geo elemental enemies present on the battlefield.

Perhaps one of the coolest ultimate abilities present in the game, Zhongli can summon a meteor from the sky onto his enemies. The meteor deals massive Geo damage to the enemies while applying Petrification on impact. Petrification will cause the enemies to remain immobile for the duration, making it easy to finish them all off.
