The best Genshin Impact characters for mining

Mining is a key aspect in Genshin Impact. The ores that you collect are used to level up weapons and craft weapons. Some of these materials are even used to ascent characters. Here are the best characters for mining in Genshin Impact.


This Geo polearm user previously went by the name of Rex Lapis. As the retired Geo Archon of Liyue, he commands immense power over the Geo element. What makes Zhongli so efficient at farming is his Elemental Skill. If you hold Dominus Lapidis, it will resonate out from Zhongli, breaking any nearby rocks.


Klee inherently does explosive damage with her attacks, which are perfect for breaking rocks. Upon charging her basic attack, she deals a massive AOE explosion that does great damage against rocks. Her mining damage output is comparable to claymore users.


Ningguang doesn’t make this list because of her ability to mine, but rather her ability to find ore nodes. Her passive talent, Trove of Marvelous Treasures, marks nearby Iron Ore, White Iron Ore, Crystal Ore, Magical Crystal Ore, and Starsilver. It does not however mark Cor Lapis or Noctilucous Jade. Qiqi will mark these ores with her passive.


This boy raised by wolves not only excels as main DPS, but he is also one of the most efficient miners in the game. Similar to Zhongli, if you charge his Elemental Skill, it can destroy ore nodes in a short radius. The skill has a relatively short cooldown, too.

Any claymore user

Along with Razor, all claymore user characters are great for mining in Genshin Impact. Claymores deal the most amount of damage against ore nodes and can take out most of them in 3 to 4 hits. Some of these characters include Chongyun, Beidou and Xinyan.
