Some people think Skyward is the best one because of its high base damage and solid perks, and five stars in general just have higher base damage so it is possible to not rank highly. Some of them do not like the perk of Amos’ Bow because they do not play their archers as shooting things from far away, just like in most of the crowded area battles, that is just hard to do.

There are only three characters in total that currently use bows in Genshin Impact, which two of them are some of the best in the game while another one is the worst. All the three include:

  • Venti
  • Fischl
  • Amber

For your information, Venti is a 5 star, the reason that makes him great by default. Another reason is he is really solid. Fischl is believed to be the best 4 star DPS in the game and is the most favorite.

On the other hand, Amber is known as the worst character of the game by far, but it is possible for her to get a buff in the future. However, it is a must for you to know the upcoming characters who use bows such as Childe (Hydro) and Diona (Cryo).
