Traveler (Anemo) Talents
Below you can see the list of talents that Traveler uses during the fight. Each of them we have described with the main characteristics.
Normal Attack: Performs up to 5 rapid strikes.
Grasping the wind's might, you form a vortex of vacuum in your palm, causing continuous Anemo DMG to opponents in front of you. The vacuum vortex explodes when the skill duration ends, causing a greater amount of Anemo DMG over a larger area.
Guiding the path of the wind currents, you summon a forward-moving tornado that pulls objects and opponents towards itself, dealing Anemo DMG each 0.5 seconds, 9 times. Elemental Absorption If the vortex comes into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro elements, it will deal 30.7% additional elemental DMG of that type. Elemental Absorption may only occur once per use.
1st Ascension Passive
The last hit of a Normal Attack combo unleashes a wind blade, dealing 60% of ATK as Anemo DMG to all opponents in its path.
4th Ascension Passive
Palm Vortex kills regenerate 2% HP for 5s. This effect can only occur once every 5s.

Below you can see the best team composition for Traveler (Anemo) with Main DPS, Sub DPS and Support characters. Also, we have included alternative characters for each role that go well with Traveler (Anemo) too.
Traveler was meant to be a universal character, who works perfectly in any comp. It is a strong character at Sub DPS role. As an Anemo character Traveler has crowd control that not just group but also push back enemies. Besides you’ll see that Traveler’s swirl is strong and will grant consistent elemental damage. Klee synergies with the Travaler due to her bombs that can be taken into the battle thanks to Travaler’s Elemental Skill and Burst. So you should always start combos with Klee and spread those bombs with Traveler. Tartaglia (Childe) comes into the game after Travaler’s Burst to shoot enemies from a far with his bow, which can also trigger Vaporize reaction if you do it after Klee bombs. Diona is a useful support who can apply shields and heal the team when needed. If you need to activate Cryo Resonance, you can take Chonqyun instead of Childe.
Good characters for this comp: Fischl, Xiangling, Amber, Barbara.
