Genshin Impact Best Chongyun Build Guide

Chongyun is counted as one of the many playable characters in the game called Genshin Impact. With Cryo skills, this one takes the advantage of the ice based attacks to freeze opponents in their tracks.

The claymores are also used by him for melee damage, the main reason for him to be the best option for a DPS role. With the best character build, he is able to become even stronger.

The Normal Attack of Chongyun deals single damage to an opponent. However, both of the Elemental Skill and the Elemental Burst of him do AoE damage, which makes him a great damage dealer in just about any part in the game.

As of now, there is only a method to obtain Chongyun, which is through the Wish system of the game. It means the chance of pulling a rarer character such as Chongyun depends a lot on luck.

For those who are lucky enough to get Chongyun through the Wish system, you can level him up quickly and make him to be an amazing damage dealer. Due to the fact that he has a great damage output, the artifacts and weapons for the best builds of this one in the game should focus on increasing melee attacks, which means the Elemental stats are not that important in this case.

Even though he is overshadowed by the character of the game that has 5 stars named Diluc when it comes to DPS, he is more common and is able to still hold his own against opponents in the battle.

With four of them equipped in total, the Normal Attack DMG of him is also increased by 35% since the claymores are used in the battle.

You will be able to find a lot of great claymores available in Genshin Impact, and most of them will work for Chongyun. The best weapon is believed to be the Wolf’s Gravestone. The reason is because it can increase his Base ATK by up to 40%. If the health of the opponent is below 30% at the time, it means all the party members get their Base ATK raised by up to 80% for 12 seconds.
