There are quite a few character types in Genshin Impact that are essential to your team. One of these is a shield user who can protect your team from damage. Zhongli is one of the best characters for negating damage in the game, especially when you use the right build.

Zhongli is the geo archon and a polearm user who is a great support unit for your team. He is able to erect a pillar that pulses geo damage while simultaneously casting a shield that protects the on-field character. To get the full effects of his shield, though, you need the right equipment.
