Heziou is a four-star Anemo character who likes to punch enemies rather than use his weapon. He made Genshin Impact history by being the first male catalyst introduced in the game, and he has a unique fighting style. But if you want to use Heizou, then you need to know how to build him.

Best Weapon for Heizou

Heizou is a selfish DPS that likes to be on the field as much as possible. He needs a weapon that can help with his elemental damage. Here is the best weapons for Heizou:

  • Skyward Atlas: Heizou earns a 12 percent increase to elemental damage, and when he hits an enemy, there is a 50 percent chance that favor of the clouds will trigger, which deals 160 percent of Heizous attack damage to enemies for 15 seconds.
  • Solar Pearl: When Heizou hits an enemy with his normal attack, his skill and burst damage is increased by 20 percent. When Heizou uses his elemental skill or burst, his normal attack damage is increased by 20 percent. This lasts for six seconds.

Best Artifacts for Heizou

Artifacts can make or break a character, and Heizou can benefit from a couple of different sets. Here are the artifact sets that works best with Heizou.

  • Viridescent Venerer: This set gives Heizou a 15 percent Anemo damage buff and increases his swirl damage by 60 percent. If an enemy is resistant to the swirled element, their resistance will fall by 40 percent for ten seconds.

Heizou’s artifact sets are still being determined, but he may also benefit from using splits sets that give him an attack or burst damage boost, like with the two-piece Noblesse Oblige.

Best Teammates for Heizou

Heizou likes to be on the field and cause swirl damage, so you will want to pair him with support characters who react with Anemo. Here are some examples of characters who should work well with Heizou.

  • Xiangling
  • Xingqui
  • Bennett
  • Mona
  • Kaeya
  • Raiden Shogun
  • Ganyu

Team testing for Heizou is still underway, but he seems to greatly benefit from teams that have off-field attacks that will apply their element. We will update this article when Heizou releases with any new information regarding his build.
