Genshin Impact has developed a deep roster of characters since its launch in 2020 and we have all the guides you need to get up to speed.
4- star Genshin Impact characters
Barbara is the most effective support character in Genshin Impact currently. She provides a consistent wet effect to enemies. One of two musician characters in Genshin Impact, Barabara uses her gorgeous melodies to heal teammates and woo fans. Most of her skills and abilities scale with her max health, fitting Diona into the paladin-type healer role. Equipping her with artifacts to increase her health will make Barbara more effective in the long run.
Beidou is the leader of an elite pirate fleet based out of Liyue, and an underrated Electro character in Genshin Impact. She uses a claymore to swipe through crowds of enemies and can deal out massive amounts of Electro damage, all while protecting herself.
Xinyan is a rock ‘n’ roll star from Liyue in Genshin Impact. Wielding a ruan, a traditional Chinese stringed instrument, she uses her music as a way to bring passion to the people and rebel against prejudice. Her kit focuses on shielding her allies as well as dealing Pyro and Physical damage.
Diona is a bartender at the Cat’s Tail tavern in Mondstadt and one of the smallest characters in Genshin Impact. This Cryo kitty-cat wields a bow, providing shields and massive AOE heals for her team. When it comes to consistent Cryo status effects, there aren’t any characters that do it better than Diona.
Sucrose is an Anemo 4-star character in Genshin Impact. One of the many scientists in the world, Sucrose researches bio-alchemy, creating life to assist her in battle. Her kit focuses on grouping up enemies and creating Swirl reactions. She doesn’t do anything extraordinary and is fairly underpowered, but isolating enemies to a specific area is unique to Sucrose.
The Prinzessia der Verurteilung who wields a bow and commands lighting is one of the strongest 4-star characters in Genshin Impact. Fischl deals most of her damage through her Elemental Skill which spawns her night raven Oz. Fischl thrives on dealing out Electro Damage while dancing around the battle with high movement speed.
Xingqiu is the son of the Guild Manager of the Feuyun Commerce Guild. He is studious and outwardly soft, with an adventurous side underneath. He fights using the Guhua Clan‘s fighting style and deals Hydro damage. His kit focuses on mitigating incoming damage while creating elemental reactions.
The wolf-boy wonder Razor is a flashy and powerful addition to any roster in Genshin Impact. If built right, Razor can be a positively disgusting damage dealer, inflicting Electro elemental reactions consistently due to the short cooldown on his skills. Being a four-star character only makes Razor better as it is easier to make him more powerful.
5- star Genshin Impact characters
Xiao is a 5-star Anemo character in Genshin Impact. He is an Adeptus: god-like beings who wield immense power. Xiao is a sworn protector of Liyue, who vanquishes the demonic spirits throughout the land. This demon slayer utilizes a polearm aggressively to deal massive damage quickly.
Mona is a mysterious astrologist that the Traveler comes across during their journey in Genshin Impact. She is unique in many aspects, and can traverse the map faster than any other character currently available. Mona is a 5-star Hydro character that utilizes a catalyst and acts as elemental damage support.
Diluc is the primary husbando in Genshin Impact and one of the strongest Pyro characters yet. Being a 5-star character puts him at a slight disadvantage when it comes to wishing and upgrading constellations, but luckily Diluc is powerful enough on his own. The Traveler meets Diluc early on in the story and he plays a crucial role in the Mondstadt storyline, also being the owner of the Dawn Winery. Once a Knight of Favonius, Diluc has since moved on to protect Modstadt in his own way after the death of his father.
Albedo is the saving grace of the Geo element. Inarguably one of the weaker elements in Genshin, Geo has been struggling for quite some time, with Zhongli falling short in numerous areas and earning his place as a low-tier hybrid.
Albedo is the Chief Alchemist, Captain of the Investigation Team of the Knights of Favonius, and mentor to the adorable scientist Sucrose. Albedo’s tool kit is designed to stack Geo damage by having a high defense and creating high ground.
Venti was the first limited run 5-star to be added in Genshin Impact. A major character in the Mondstadt storyline, we meet Venti near the beginning of the game. As well as being a bard that could captivate his audience, he is the Anemo Archon.
Ganyu is the newest 5-star character in Genshin Impact. This Cryo character wields a bow and controls the battlefield with her abilities. She can use her Elemental Skill to distract enemies, and her Elemental Burst is great for sustained area damage.
