Genshin Impact’s lively and quickly expanding cast of characters allows players to mix and match to form the perfect team of four. What’s unique about the game is the characters’ ability to shine and change roles with the right artifacts, stats, and weapons, so don’t be afraid to use your best girl or boy—regardless of how they rank! But to form a team of best-in-slots and save for upcoming banners, read on to find out how each Genshin Impact character fairs in our rankings.

Anemo

The Anemo squad is made up of the game’s coveted crowd control stars. With their unique ability to cast Swirl, they can spread other elements and cause multiple elements to react with one another within the Swirl’s vicinity.

Pyro

Pyro is one of the easiest elements to use in the game because of its ability to synergize with all other elements to create powerful reactions. It’s a useful asset that can help you explore the freezing Dragonspine and quickly break down pesky Cryo shields.

Geo

Geo characters stand out for their inability to form reactions with other elements. But they don’t fall short of damage and utility, as they bring in fun mechanics that switch up Genshin Impact’s element-focused gameplay, from creating shields to summoning Geo Constructs.
