Additionally, Spiral Abyss Ley Line Disorders for Floor 11 and 12 have been adjusted, and there are two new Lunar Phases.

Phase I: Lightning Moon

When opponents take Electro-Charged DMG, their Electro RES decreases by 10% for 10s. Max 4 stacks. Each stack's duration is independent. Each enemy can receive this effect once every 1.2s.

Phase II: Godcall Moon:

When the active character's Normal Attacks, Charged Attacks, Plunging Attacks, Elemental Skills, and Elemental Bursts hit an opponent affected by Electro, a shockwave is created at that opponent's position, dealing True DMG. A shockwave may be produced in this manner every 2s.

Now, let's take a look at the improvements, fixes and optimizations in via the Genshin Impact 2.5 patch notes.
