Explaining the Ranks and Characters
Here’s a quick rundown of what the different tiers mean for our Genshin Impact tier list, and our reasoning for the characters being ranked where they are.
Genshin Impact SS-Tier
The Genshin Impact 2.0 update introduced Ayaka, the Cryo Sword user to the game. A lot of people had high expectations from this character, and it’s fair to say she has met them. While she doesn’t have the same damage output as Diluc or Ganyu, Ayaka can be built in a DPS role, but she can also fulfil the sub-DPS role if necessary.
Bennett is simply the best support in the game. He can do it all. He gives a strong ATK buff to your team, and heals. There aren’t many characters that can buff and heal, let alone do it as well as Bennett can.
Ganyu and her Bow are the first to rival Diluc’s base attack power. On top of that, she has the unique ability to shoot different kinds of Cryo arrows with just her charged attack, including one with area of effect damage. Together with her powerful AoE elemental abilities, Ganyu can continuously harm and freeze her enemies.
Kazuha is a premier Anemo support. Anemo supports in general are all very powerful. Kazuha provides grouping, Swirl damage, Elemental Mastery, and more. He’s a unit that can easily fit into any team that cares about Elemental Damage.
When Raiden Shogun first joined the game, she seemed underwhelming at first due to the strength of the Electro element. As players learned how to get the most out of her abilities, Raiden Shogun has shot up in the ranks to become one of the best Genshin Impact characters. Her incredible support build generates an absurd amount of energy, making it very easy for her to slot into a variety of teams.
Xingqiu is one of the best supports in the game alongside Bennett. Xingqiu’s claim to fame is his Hydro application. His burst and skill allow him to apply hydro to enemies without spending much time on the field. This allows other characters to react with Hydro very easily, making him the best support at what he does.
Genshin Impact S-Tier
Genshin Impact’s Ayato is the brother of Ayaka, head of the Kamisato Clan, and Yashiro Commissioner. He’s a very handsome man, and loves drinking boba.
Fischl is an amazing off-field support and Electro applicator. She is a very valuable source of damage in the many different taser teams, and is simply a very powerful reaction based off-field character.
This Polearm and Pyro character can pack quite a punch when set up with the right build. Fans expected another five star Pyro character to be on the same level as Diluc, and while Hu Tao may not be able to deal as much damage through AoE attacks, her damage output against single targets makes her extremely valuable.
The divine priestess of Sangonomiya Temple is a strong healer in a character roster already filled with strong healers. Her Bake-Kurage jellyfish and Nereid’s Ascension help her play a useful support role, providing healing and Hydro-damage, but her Flawless Strategy’s 100% decrease in crit rate for a 25% healing bonus does mean she is better as a healer than a damage-dealer.
Another Anemo support is rated highly, what a surprise. Sucrose is an Anemo support on the level of units like Venti and Kazuha. She fulfills her own niche with her talents giving the team Elemental Mastery. Being a catalyst user also gives her access to TTDS as an option for a support. She can even be run as a pseudo Main DPS in taser (electrocharged) teams where her job is to simply swirl react over and over with her attacks and skills.
It’s unclear what motivates Genshin Impact’s Tartaglia, who is a member of the Eleven Harbingers. Intriguingly, he fights with a bow as it’s the weapon that he’s weakest with, so who knows what power lurks within?
Venti is amazing for the same reason as Kazuha. He’s an Anemo support. His burst can also completely trivialize certain content if enemies are able to be picked up. Anemo overall is just very powerful.
She may not do the highest melee damage with just her Polearm, but there’s no denying that Xiangling is one of the best Pyro’s in Genshin Impact. Her elemental skill drops an auto-targeting, fire-breathing teddy bear, while her elemental burst surrounds her with fire for up to ten seconds.
Genshin Impact’s Yelan is a bow-wielding, hydro character who claims to work for the Ministry of Civil Affairs, but is classed as a ‘non-entity’ on their list.
Genshin Impact A-Tier
Geo characters in general are an interesting case. They can often be very powerful, and can exist outside of the elemental reaction family. Albedo shines as a Sub DPS unit for comps that either want to use Geo supports or want to use a Geo Main DPS.
When Arataki Itto was first announced, there was some hesitancy from the Genshin Impact community about how well a Geo DPS character could perform. The Geo element isn’t known for its DPS capabilities, and Itto’s abilities scale based on his defence stats, casting further doubt on his potential. It’s fair to say Itto has shattered all expectations as he can deal huge amounts of damage when paired with the right party members. The only thing stopping Itto from reaching the highest tier is his need for Geo characters – your team needs to revolve entirely around Itto, whereas the very best characters don’t need anywhere near as much support.
By no means, is Beidou not a strong character. Taser teams are extremely powerful, and Beidou is a key piece to that recipe. However, she has limited use cases being limited to these electrocharged teams, and it just a slight step down from the characters in S tier and above.
This claymore-wielding cryo character is great in a main DPS role. You can find our recommended build for Genshin Impact’s Eula right here.
Jean is mainly used as another Anemo support, but she falls behind the other Anemo supports in terms of her kit. She does have powerful synergies with characters with things like Sunfire, but overall she still falls behind the other Anemo supports.
Sword-wielder Kaeya can fulfil the role of main DPS for beginning Genshin Impact players, but he should be replaced as soon as possible. His ascension stats may give him a higher energy recharge, but Kaeya’s elemental abilities are not nearly as useful as those of other Cryo’s.
Mona is a powerful support that is most popular on freeze teams alongside Ganyu or Ayaka. Her skill can apply Hydro while off field, and her burst allows you to debuff enemies. Lastly, being a catalyst user allows her to use Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers (TTDS), a very powerful support weapon to buff up your Main DPS.
Genshin Impact’s Rosaria is a sister of the Church of Favonius, who you might remember from your quest with Albedo over in Dragonspine.
Shenhe is basically the premier Cryo support. Her main strength is being able to buff up your Main Cryo DPS. While this is very powerful, it’s not necessarily needed. Shenhe shines when you already have a strong team built around a Cryo DPS. She doesn’t enable your account to build into different and more flexible teams like other units do.
As the only Anemo character focused purely on DPS, Xiao does a great job of attacking multiple enemies at once with his plunging attacks. He can easily trigger the elemental reaction Swirl with a host of characters, allowing Xiao to slot in with most of the roster.
Genshin Impact’s Yae Miko is the head shrine maiden of Grand Narukami Shrine. She is the editor-in-chief of Yae Publishing, and is not fully understood by mortal folk.
After the 1.3 update, Zhongli is finally worthy of his five-star rating. The buffs to both Geo abilities and the Geo elemental resonance have drastically increased Zhongli’s damage output. Not only is Zhongli capable of dealing damage on par with S-tier characters, his Jade Shield ability is highly effective, allowing him to play in a DPS and support hybrid role. Give our Genshin Impact Zhongli build a look to see how much better he is now.
Genshin Impact B-Tier
Barbara is a decent support in that she provides a lot of healing, but healing is unique in that you don’t need too much of it. Just a small amount is enough, so specializing in healing can be overkill. Her skill can be used as off field hydro application, but it comes at the cost of the wet status and having to be very close to enemies. Overall, she isn’t a terrible pick, but there are many better options.
Chongyun was used in the early days of Genshin, but nowadays, with access to more Cryo units, he has fallen by the wayside. He can still be used, but he doesn’t particularly excel anywhere.
Diluc is basically the baseline by which we assess character power level. He was the first popular Main DPS and was touted as the strongest character on Genshin’s launch. Since then, we’ve learned about many more mechanics, and while Diluc is still a decent Main DPS, he has definitely been overshadowed over time.
Diona’s claim to fame is the fact that she’s a shielding Cryo support. Being a Cryo support allows her to generate Cryo energy for units like Ayaka or Ganyu. This, combined with the fact that she has solid supporting abilities, ranks her decently. While she can help players with the comfort of shielding, there are other options for Cryo supports that will do more damage.
Gorou is a Geo support through and through. He is arguably Itto’s best support, and makes mono Geo teams stronger. Like some other characters in this tier, Gorou has a strong use case, but is limited to it. Furthermore, being the best Geo support is important, but if Geo teams aren’t the strongest in the game, the tier of Gorou also goes down.
Keqing is one of the OG 5-star characters in the game. She is an Electro Main DPS, but she suffers from a lot of issues. Electro is unfavorable in terms of reactions except electrocharged, and Keqing isn’t amazing at reacting with Hydro. Her ideal attack is also to spam charged attacks, which eat away at stamina.
Klee is another character that is simply just overshadowed by others. She has good potential and can clear the abyss with the right teams, but she is not as easy to pilot or build around as other characters.
So far Kujou Sara’s main role in teams is to buff up Raiden Shogun as the Main DPS. We call this Raiden Hyper Carry (building around buffing up Raiden as much as possible). At C6, Kujou Sara is a great support for Raiden, but before that, she is mediocre. Even at C6, other characters like Lisa can perform similarly in the Electro Support role.
Lisa, like another Electro Catalyst user, is simply a bit clunky to use. Her skill needs time to channel for 2 seconds, which makes her very clunky to play. She can deal solid damage, but is often too slow to justify. Lisa’s saving grace is that she can hold TTDS.
Ningguang is another Geo Main DPS user, but she is not very strong unless she is at C6. Before then, she can arguably be put in C tier, but for the lovers out there, there is some hope at C6.
There is nothing that is wrong with Noelle’s kit, but she doesn’t provide a whole lot. She is a Geo Main DPS similar to Itto, except she lacks the same punch that Itto has. She can still deal huge chunks of damage with the right investments, but those same investments would pay off more on other characters.
Back in the day, Razor was a popular main DPS character. His kit leans into both Physical and Electro damage, but doesn’t excel at either. Scaling Razor’s damage is also difficult without tools like resistance shred or reactions. There is some access to scaling these, but like other characters here, investment would be better off on another character.
Sayu is not bad, but once again, her kit as an Anemo Support revolves around healing, which is not the best kit to build upon. Her Anemo application is not as strong as other Anemo units, and her advantage with healing is lackluster in time trial end game.
Much like the other Main DPS units in this list, Yanfei is simply underwhelming compared to other options.
Yoimiya is another Pyro Main DPS, but she suffers from targeting issues. Her kit relies on her normal attack damage, which can be annoying to use in many situations. She isn’t the greatest Main DPS, but she can still make it work somewhat.
Yun Jin is a solid support for any character that uses their Normal attacks. This includes units like Ayato, Itto, Noelle, and more. She’s a solid support that can go on a decent amount of teams. Her weakness is that the current meta revolves a lot around Elemental Reactions and Damage rather than Normal Attacks.
Genshin Impact C-Tier
Unfortunately, these characters just aren’t very good. They will struggle to clear endgame content, and are difficult to synergize into teams.
In the early days, Amber was top tier for completing Pyro puzzles and lighting torches. Now she sits unused in people’s accounts.
Aloy was a free character given in in collaboration with Horizon Zero Dawn. Unfortunately, she just isn’t that powerful.
The issue with Thoma is that he does virtually no damage. He brings utility in the form of shielding, but that’s not enough to overtake the king of Pyro supports, Bennett.
All of the Traveler variations suffer from just not being able to do quite enough. Anemo and Geo already need lots of help to deal solid damage, and Electro is a niche element that works in very specific teams with specific characters. While the Traveler can definitely fit into many teams, there is almost always a better option.
Qiqi is low on the list similar to Barbara. Her kit revolves around healing, but healing is not a necessary investment. What makes Qiqi even more difficult to use is that she does not generate particles with her skill like most other units do. As such, Diona is preferred to Qiqi in almost every team that wants a Cryo support.
Xinyan is a Main DPS that suffers an identity crisis. Unfortunately, her kit doesn’t synergize with itself and leaves Xinyan as an underwhelming character.
