Genshin Impact Character Breakdown

Here is a breakdown of each character, along with their rarity, weapon, and element. Also, we share some detail about their pros.

SS-Tier Character Breakdown

Diluc

Best Genshin Impact Character diluc

  • Rarity: 5-Star
  • Weapon: Claymore
  • Element: Pyro
  • Notes: He has a big area damage, the best ultimate in the game, and massive overall damage output.

As we know that Diluc is one of the best DPS characters in the game of Genshin Impact. Between his two abilities, he will be able to put out an absurd amount of damage (so long as your enemies are not Pyro resistant). His regular attacks are nice vicious. Just stun your enemies with a character like Venti, switch to Diluc, and then watch them evaporate.

Venti

Best Genshin Impact Character venti

  • Rarity: 5-Star
  • Weapon: Bow
  • Element: Anemo
  • Notes: Her skills really useful in Battle, a good choice for a main carry, Swirl damage for big numbers.

Venti is one of the most sought-after characters in Genshin Impact for good reason. Between his two abilities, he will be able to stun an enormous number of opponents effectively for an unparalleled length of time. He is really great in any fight where you are  outnumbered, however Skyward Sonnet is also able to be useful for solving a few outdoor puzzles and creates climbing a bit easier.

Klee

  • Rarity: 5-Star
  • Weapon: Catalyst
  • Element: Pyro
  • Notes: Amazing crowd control, Fire and catalyst let for many elemental reactions, Great cast and swap elemental abilities.

We have realized her potential to be a powerhouse DPS. Her abilities are capable of nuking large groups of opponents all at once, that makes her almost as useful as Diluc as. If you have her, you have to make use of her definitely.

Qiqi

  • Rarity: 5-Star
  • Weapon: Sword
  • Element: Cryo
  • Notes: Really good for elemental reactions, simply to use character, Synergizes well with other members.

Qiqi is not only the best Cryo character in Genshin Impact, but also her ability to produce 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 obvious is that the healing scales based off of Qiqi’s attack stat. So, you need to load her up with attack boosting items.

S-Tier Character Breakdown

Bennett

Best Genshin Impact Character bennet

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Sword
  • Element: Pyro
  • Notes: Great damage and unique combo of skills, he will able to heal, Pyro allows for explosive damage and big numbers.

Bennett is a solid support character in 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.

Childe

Best Genshin Impact Character childe

  • Rarity: 5-Star
  • Weapon: Bow
  • Element: Hydro
  • Notes: The Blended playstyle, really short cooldowns, especially with constellations, Inflicts high amounts of Hydro damage often.

Childe is an absolute beast. His passive ability improve the normal attacks of your party. Also, he can switch between ranged and melee makes him useful in good much every situation. His bow attacks and Elemental Burst will be able to apply a status effect named Riptide, that add the damage enemies take and even causes them to periodically explode, dealing Hydro damage to nearby enemies.

Chongyun

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Claymore
  • Element: Cryo
  • Notes: will be able to deal massive cryo damage, amazing for elemental damage and reactions, easily can traverse water.

Like many other characters in this tier, Chongyun is a capable fighter who only lacks a certain something which makes him exceptional.

Fischi

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Bow
  • Element: Electro
  • Notes: Best enabler in Genshin Impact, Electro is very useful for elemental reactions, Allows for multiple play styles.

Fischi usually fights from a safe distance, but it is often 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. If you get surrounded or pushed into a corner, her Elemental Burst allows you escape quickly without taking any damage. Both are really useful skills.

Jean

  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Sword
  • Element: Anemo
  • Notes: Easily can draw the opponents and provide has crowd control

Her crowd control and healing cannot keep up, but she is a fantastic character if you have. Her Elemental Burst scales off of her attack stat. Thus, you need to complete her with as many attack-boosting weapons as possible to really get the benefits of her healing.

Keqing

  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Sword
  • Element: Electro
  • Notes: Electro attacks are really useful for elemental reactions, Easy to use character, this effective at all ranges

Keqing is a DPS character who comes with some pretty mobility, thanks to her Elemental Skill. Also, her Elemental Burst does big damage, making her a great addition to most any party members.

Mona

  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Catalyst
  • Element: Hydro
  • Notes: Highly mobile character, good for elemental damage, amazing for setting up elemental reactions

Mona is the only character who can run across water. It is very useful in some circumstances. The other thing which makes her incredibly useful is her Elemental Skill, as it deals respectable damage. So you are able to switch to a flimsy DPS character.

Razor

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Claymore
  • Element: Electro
  • Notes: Good choice for a main damage dealer, High area of effect elemental skills, Solid charged attack.

Razor is a beast, if you use his skills correctly. You will want to have three sigils on the go and then use them all at once to trigger his Elemental Burst. 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, making it hard to set up big elemental combos.

Xingqiu

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Sword
  • Element: Hydro
  • Notes: Easy character to use all around, High output from default attack

Apparently, for the most part, the ability of Xingqiue is just shave off a chunk of the damage he takes while fighting. However, here is a better idea.

Albedo

  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Sword
  • Element: Geo
  • Notes: Great combo damage dealer, Flexible Geo character, Good synergy with any team.

Albedo will not set the world on fire, however he is really reliable secondary DPS character who is able to put out impressive damage. Also, his Solar Isotoma has some nifty utility by levitating, that might help you reach inaccessible areas that you cannot climb to.

A-Tier Characters

Barbara

Barbara genshin impact

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Catalyst
  • Element: Hydro
  • Notes: Solid support class, Bursty heals and good area coverage.

Barbara is one of some free characters in the game of Genshin Impact. Also, she is one of the first healers you are likely to get. Fortunately, she is extremely competent at what she does and she is easy to use. Let the Show Begin is a good way to get a small amount of healing in, but you have to beware that it makes Barbara wet.

Beidou

Beidou -

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Claymore
  • Element: Electro
  • Notes: Really strong melee abilities, Allows for iframes, High overall damage output.

Beidou sound is really cool. But, it is hard to use her Elemental Skill effectively. Timing the block correctly is not easy and opponents do not always attack reliably enough to create the best use of the skill.

Ningguang

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Catalyst
  • Element: Geo
  • Notes: Good choice for support and DPS, Elemental abilities give a great support, Good choice for breaking shields.

Her Jade Screen will be able to be extremely useful if there are archers at your flank,

Noelle

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Claymore
  • Element: Geo
  • Notes: Good charged spinning attack, Good support elemental abilities.

Unfortunately, her shield feels pretty useless since it is always better to avoid damage rather than tank it.

Sucrose

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Catlyst
  • Element: Anemo
  • Notes: Amazing crowd control and high damage output, Pretty for elemental reactions and Swirl, Requires several distance and positioning

She is extremely good at setting up big combos. Because Anemo characters are so rare in the game of Genshin Impact, so Sucrose is a great addition to most parties.

Xiangling

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Polearm
  • Element: Pyro
  • Notes: Skills lets for cast and swap playstyle, good for elemental reactions, High damage and area of effect

Xiangling is a good Pyro DPS beaten only by Diluc. Her Elemental Burst will be able to cover the entire battlefield quickly in flames and her rapid polearm attacks are vicious.

B-Tier Characters

Diona

Diona genshin

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Bow
  • Element: Cryo
  • Notes: Amazing support with shield abilities, Explosive burst damage, Sunergizes well with most party members

Diona is a good addition to Genshin Impact and a great healer or utility character for your party. Her shield is very powerful and easy to trigger, and her healing effect will keep you in the fight for a long time.

Kaeya

Kaeya genshin impact

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Sword
  • Element: Cryo
  • Notes: Easy to use character, Very low cooldown skills, Consistent overall damage

Another one of the freebie characters, Kaeya is not that useful. Neither of his abilities do much to help the rest of your party, so we suggest you to replace him if you have.

Lisa

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Catalyst
  • Element: Electro
  • Notes: Elemental skills deal big area damage, Nice for elemental damage and reactions, really high overall damage output with proper gear

Her Electro abilities are really powerful, however her Elemental Skill has to be charged up to be useful, leaving her extremely vulnerable.

C-Tier Characters

Amber

Amber -

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Bow
  • Element: Pyro
  • Notes: Good for exploiting weakpoints on enemies, Very good distance, Capable of carrying a team with high damage

Both of her abilities are underwhelming, especially Explosive Puppet, that takes ages to kill.

Traveler

  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Sword
  • Element: Anemo, Geo
  • Notes: Versatile build options, Easiest character to use in the game, Passive talents are useful in both elements.

You may want to start the game with this character. His abilities will be useful for a long time until you get access to get better Anemo characters.
