Venti

Venti

Venti is one of favorit characters on the game of Genshin Impact. Also, he is a good Anemo support that can dealing massive damage. He will be able to launch the opponents into the air with his Elemental Skill and deal additional Hydro, Electro, Pyro, and Cryo damage to opponents with his Elemental Burst. The only downside to Venti, if he has one, is that he requires a good team to truly flourish. Venti is one of the most prominent Genshin Impact characters for good reason. Between his two great abilities, he is able to stun an enormous number of enemies effectively for an unparalleled length of time. He is very useful in practically every circumstance.

Diluc

Diluc

Diluc is one of the best DPS characters in the game of Genshin Impact. Between his two abilities, he is able to put out an absurd amount of damage (so long as your foes are not Pyro resistant), and his regular attacks are pretty vicious too. Stun your opponents with a character like Venti and Diluc, watch them evaporate. Any team requires at least one powerful DPS, and Diluc is without a doubt the best option. With his sword and Pyro damage, he is effective against wooden shields particularly, which easily he can burn and break. Now let us take a moment to sum up his Elemental Burst. It starts by dealing knockback and Pyro damage to nearby opponents then it deals Pyro damage to them again in the form of a fiery phoenix, then does several explosive Pyro damage. Next it sets Diluc’s sword on fire so he will be able to deal a bit more Pyro damage with his normal attack.

Fischi

Fischi

Fischl is an excellent Electro bow character on the game of Genshin impact. She is good for ranged damage, one of the great advantages of having Fischl character on your team is her usefulness whenever she is not on the battlefield. Easily, she is able to jump in, cast her Elemental Skill, and jump out. Her Electro raven will be able to attack opponents and potentially trigger Elemental Reactions.

Fischl is S-tier as her utility and mobility. Normally, she fights from a safe distance, but it is frequently better to use Nightrider and then switch to another character to focus on DPS or queue up an elemental combo with the raven’s Electro attacks.

Qiqi

Qiqi

Qiqi is not only the best Cryo character on the game of Gemshin Impact, but also her ability to regenerate enormous amounts of health creates her an easy pick for any team. Both of her Cryo abilities heal the party if she attacks opponents affected by them, but what is not immediately obvious is that the healing scales based off of Qiqi’s attack stat. So, load her up with attack boosting items. If you attack them with regular attacks, Qiqi will be able to heal herself and her party. Let us talk about her elemental Burst: Preserver of Fortune marks nearby opponents and deals constant Cryo damage. Same with her Elemental Skill, attacking those opponents regenerates HP for the entire party.

Klee

Klee

Klee is the best choice, if you want a ranged Pyro DPS on your team. Unlike lots of characters using a bow, Klee is able to defeat multiple opponents easily at once with her explosive attacks. But, Diluc is still the best Pyro DPS. If you are a bit of a pyromaniac and like to do extra Pyro damage, this character, Klee is a better teammate for Diluc than melee Xiangling because of her ranged AoE damage.

Element: Pyro

Weapon: Catalyst

Elemental Skill: Klee has an ability named Jumpy Dumpty which is a bouncing bomb that can ignites the opponents before exploding into several small mines when opponents get close.

Elemental Burst: Sparks and Splash causes a trio of fire lasers to blast the opponents for ten seconds.

Tartaglia

Tartaglia

Tartaglia is also one of the best characters on Genshin Impact game. Aside from that, his bow attacks and Elemental Burst are able to apply a status effect named Riptide, that increases the damage opponents take and causes them to periodically explode, dealing Hydro damage to nearby opponents. All of this combined means Tartaglia will be able to put out extreme amounts of DPS, creating him a must-have for almost any team.

Element: Hydro

Weapon: Bow (also use  daggers)

Elemental Skill: Foul Legacy: Raging Tide switches Tartaglia into a melee stance where he utilizes Hydro daggers to deal damage.

Elemental Burst: Obliteration changes depending on whether you are in ranged or melee stance. In ranged, Tartaglia fires a Hydro arrow that does large AoE damage to opponents. In his melee stance, he slashes all nearby opponents, dealing large AoE Hydro damage.

Mona

Mona

Apparently, Mona has a unique movement abilities which let her to dash through water and swiftly move across the battlefield. She is really skilled at dealing high Hydro damage while avoiding all incoming damage. Her Elemental Burst is especially useful as it immobilizes opponents and makes them wet. Due to the large AoE, this is amazing for setting up Elemental Reactions. Mona is the best DPS and the best Elemental support. However, she is able to do both extremely well. Even, lots of people think that she should be the number one choice for any team which requires a Hydro.

Keqing

Keqing

Electro is one of the most useful characters on the game of Genshin Impact for making reactions in combat. Definitely you will want this best Electro DPS character, Keqing on your team. As a fast sword which is wielding DPS, Keqing is an asset to any party composition. Even, she is more versatile than it. She is able to do normal attack (melee damage), ranged damage and AoE damage interchangeably. The best thing related to her is her ability to teleport across the battlefield. This is not only convenient for Keqing herself. If you are using a ranged attack but require to swap to a melee character, Keqing can be the best choice for you.

Jean

Jean

This character is a jack of all trades; good at support, good at DPS, and good at healing. Her normal sword attack is brilliant for DPS, her Elemental Skill is great for crowd control (she is able to pull opponents towards her), and she is able to heal the teammates with her Elemental Burst. On the downside though, Jean is not the greatest in any of those categories. She is a very welcome addition to teams that do not have truly specialized characters yet.

Bennett

Bennett

Bennett is a solid support character on the game of Genshin Impact who is best used to set up another DPS character to do mad damage. After using his Elemental Burst, you are going to switch to a character who will benefit from the increased attack and Pyro damage, like Keqing. His ability to heal characters also gives him a ton of utility in fights (below 70 percent HP)

Element: Pyro

Weapon: Sword

Elemental Skill: Passion Overload, if pressed, does a swift Pyro slash. If held, Bennett begins charging up. Bennett will attacks twice and launches the enemies, if held during the first phase of the charge. While if held to the second phase, Bennett will attacks three times with the last attack to trigger a massive explosion that launches Bennett and opponents.

Elemental Burst: Fantastic Voyage makes Bennett to jump at an opponent and attack, making a large Inspiration Field with different effects. The characters within the field who are below 70 percent health will be able to regenerate HP, and for the characters who are above 70 percent HP, they are going to attack boost and deal Pyro damage with their basic attacks.

Barbara

Barbara

Barbara is an excellent healer and must be built with high HP. Whenever teammates get in trouble, quickly Barbara can cast her Elemental Skill or Burst to save them. Furthermore, Barbara is amazing for setting up Elemental Reactions with Hydro. Her attacks do low damage, you will not use her for that anyway. But, if you have Mona for Hydro reactions and Qiqi for better healing, we think that you do not need Barbara anymore.

Razor

Razor

Razor is an animal, but only if you use his skills properly. You will want to always have three sigils on the go and then utilize them all at once to trigger his Elemental Burst that much quicker. While he is using Lightning Fang, you will be able to do excellent damage to a single enemy target. The only problem is that Razor does not play well with other characters, creating it hard to set up big elemental combos.

Element: Electro

Weapon: Claymore

Elemental Skill: The claw and thunder is a bit complicated. You are able to press it to do a quick Electro attack which temporarily grants you a sigil that increases Razor’s energy recharge rate. He is able to own three of those, with new ones replacing the oldest sigil.

Elemental Burst: Lightning Fang possesses Razor with the spirit of a wolf, allowing him rapidly claw the enemies to deal big Electro damage while becoming immune to Electro attacks.

Xianling

Xianling

Xiangling is a fantastic Pyro DPS on the game of Genshin Impact. She beaten only by Diluc. Her Elemental Burst is able to quickly cover the entire battlefield in flames and her rapid polearm attacks are vicious. The only downside is that Guoba Attack will be able to take some positioning to use effectively. The panda is going to always turn to attack nearby opponents, but it is still easy to throw it the wrong way or to have the action move beyond its reach.

Element: Pyro

Weapon: Polearm

Elemental Skill: Guoba Attack summons Xiangling’s magic panda who breathes fire on the opponents a few times over a few seconds.

Diona

Diona

Diona is a best and fantastic character on the game of Genshin Impact. Also, she is a great healer and utility character for your party. Her shield is very powerful and easy to trigger. Aside from that, her healing effect will be able to keep you in the fight for a long time. Because she is only a four-star character and relatively easy to get, there is no reason you should not add Diona to your party especially if you want to ditch Barbara or another dedicated healer.

Element: Cryo

Weapon: Bow

Elemental Skill: Icy Paws fires cute lil’ paws at opponents that deal Cryo damage. For each paw that hits (you will fire more if you hold down the button), Diona gets a shield which scales off of her maximal HP, with its duration scaling off of how lots of icy paws hit the target.

Elemental Burst: The signature Mix throws a cocktail that shatters on the ground, creating a large area of effect which deals Cryo damage to the opponents within it while regenerating the HP of any allies within the circle continuously.

Lisa

Lisa

Lisa is another character who will be replaced as soon as you have someone better. Her Electro abilities are powerful, however her Elemental Skill has to be charged up to be useful, leaving her extremely vulnerable. Otherwise her regular attack damage is unimpressive.

Element: Electro

Weapon: Catalyst

Elemental Skill: Violet Arc is able to be pressed to fire a Electro orb quickly that chases and zaps enemies, or you are able to hold it to charge up an enormous lightning storm which deals big Electro damage around Lisa.

Elemental Burst: Lightning Rose summons a floating lamp which zaps any opponents who gets close.
