Quicken is an elemental reaction in Genshin Impact that was added to the game with version 3.0 as a part of 'The Morn a Thousand Roses Brings' update that introduced the Sumeru region and the Dendro element.

What separates Quicken from other Genshin Impact elemental reactions is the fact that it is part of a group of three elemental reactions under the Catalyze category. So triggering it during battle or other scenarios is bemusing.

As we mentioned earlier, Quicken is one of the three elemental reactions in Genshin Impact under Catalyze group of reactions. While it doesn't directly boost damage inflicted on enemies, it creates a Quicken aura around them, which helps trigger the other Catalyze group reactions, Aggravate and Spread.

In Genshin Impact, you can trigger the Quicken elemental reaction by inflicting the target with Dendro and Electro elements. You must also ensure the target is not inflicted with any other element, or you may trigger Bloom, Blurgeon, and other such Dendro reactions.

When you fight enemies near water, elemental crystals, or plants, the enemies get afflicted by the natural element sources, and you fail to trigger Quicken. And that is why you must keep a keen eye on your enemies and their elemental status.

That said, to sum things up, to trigger Quicken elemental reaction, attack an enemy with Electro -> Dendro or Dendro -> Electro. Doing so will trigger Quicken with further Electro attacks triggering Aggravate and Dendro attacks triggering Spread.
