What is Forte Circuit in Wuthering Waves?

Much like your Intro and Outro Skills, the Forte Circuit is a special skill that is available to your Resonator once you've filled up a certain gauge (more on how to do this below). Unlike your other skills, the Forte Circuit is a passive ability that provides a unique effect that will completely determine your character's playstyle.

Each Resonator's Forte Circuit works alongside their Normal Attack, Resonance Skill, and Resonance Liberation.

How to use Forte Circuit in Wuthering Waves

Your Forte Circuit is built up by carrying out attacks and dealing damage. You'll notice your Forte Gauge, allocated directly above your health bar, will fill up until you can trigger the release of the Forte Circuit skill or a heavy attack to deal devastating damage to your enemies.

Your Forte Gauge glows the color of your specific elemental ability. For example, Rover's glows yellow, while Yangyang's glows green. Each time your Forte Gauge fills up, your character will be prompted by a specific trigger button to carry out the skill.

How to level up Forte Circuit in Wuthering Waves

In the Forte Menu under your chosen Resonator, you can view which level you are currently on for Forte Circuit. This is the middle of the five options on the screen. You must level up by using your skill, but also by upgrading at Resonator Rank 2.
