The best Teams in Genshin Impact | Character Composition

Best teams Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact already has over sixty different characters. This offers a huge choice to compose teams, especially sinceHoYoverse introduces new heroes with each new update. Forming a good team is essential to defeat the monsters of the Abyss in the time allowed to win all the Primogems. To help you get the most out of your characters, we've put together a list of the best compositions and teams in Genshin Impact.

This tier list of the best teams of Genshin Impact takes into account all characters available until the 3.5 update.

How to build a good team in Genshin Impact ?

Team Raiden National in action

Having a strong team in Genshin Impact is essential to successfully pass all the floors in the Abyss. Opting for powerful characters is not always enough. You must first make sure that they have a good build. On top of that, the characters must have a good synergy between them. To do this, play on the elemental reactions. For example, by combining a Cryo hero with a Hydro hero, you can freeze your enemies. Also, by playing two characters of the same type, you will benefit from elemental resonance. Two Pyro characters will increaseATK by 25%.

Make sure you have a balanced team with different roles. Gathering several powerful DPS is not necessarily optimal. Ideally, you should have one primary DPS, one secondary DPS, one support and one healer or shield. It is also possible to play two secondary DPS.

On the support and DPS support side, 4-star characters such as Bennett (for DPS boost and heal), Xingqiu (to apply Hydro), Fischl (for his raven that generates Electro), Sucrose (to gather enemies and boost elemental mastery), Xiangling (which does a lot of Pyro damage) or even Yaoyao (to apply the Dendro element and heal) are back in many teams.

Tier list of the best teams of Genshin Impact around a main DPS

Many compositions teams in Genshin Impact revolve around a particular DPS hand. The other characters are then used to boost his attack, protect him and/or heal him. We have selected the top 10 teams in Genshin Impact.

Team Alhaitam: the best DPS Dendro

Appeared in the 3.4 update, Alhaitham is now one of the best DPS in Genshin Impact. For this 5-star Dendro character to produce maximum damage, we recommend always playing him with an Electro character. This will allow you to perform Overactivation and Propagation, which boosts both Electro and Dendro damage.

You can for example play it with Nahida in order to increase her elemental mastery, Yae Miko or Fishl to do off-camera damage and Kuki Shinobu to heal your team while also applying the Electro element. Alhaitham also works very well with Yaoyaoan excellent Dendro healer.

It is also possible to replace an Electro character with Xingqiu or Yelan to create Dendro Cores and then doExuberance with the Electro Element. This turns the seeds into projectiles, so you will do more elemental reaction damage. The more elemental control your characters have, the more devastating the reactions will be.

The principle of the Cyno team is the same as for Alhaitam's team, i.e. to do Overactivation, Propagation and even Stimulation. Except that this time, the focus is on an Electro character whose gameplay revolves around his elemental rampage and who occupies a significant amount of field time. Cyno can also be replaced by Raiden, Yae Miko or Keqing.

Among the best meta teams to play Cyno in Genshin Impact, we recommend Cyno / Fishl / Nahida / Zhongli or Cyno / Xingqiu or Yelan / Nahida / Shinobu. In all cases, choose characters that can apply damage and elements out of the field for at least ten seconds in order to assist Cyno when he activates his elemental rampage and make a maximum of reactions. Always start by playing all your support characters before switching to Cyno.

Team Ayaka : the queen of Cryo and gel

Ayaka excels in perma-gel teams, where you will first soak the enemy with Hydro attacks, then follow up with her Cryo attacks. Also, Shenhe will greatly increase his Cryo damage. Finally, an Anemo hero will gather your enemies more easily, while weakening them.

The composition Ayaka / Shenhe / Kazuha / Kokomi gives you a good control in most of the floors of the Abyss. If you don't have these characters, Ayaka also works well with Mona or Xingqiu, Venti or Sucrose and Diona for the Cryo resonance, the heal and the shield that it brings.

Team Raiden: hyper carry Raiden Shogun

The Raiden Shogun remains one of the most powerful characters in the RPG. As such, the hyper carry team Raiden Shogun still stands out asone of the best teams in Genshin Impact. Although the Archon Electro is mostly played as a DPS support, here she takes on the role of a DPS hand. By combining it with Kaedehara Kazuha, Kujou Sara and Bennettyou increase its damage enormously. If you don't have the sixth constellation of Kujou Sara, you can opt for Lisa.

After using Kazuha's, Bennett's and Sara's elemental rampages, all you have to do is cast Raiden's.

Team Hu Tao : the queen of Pyro

Hu Tao is without doubt one of the queens of the abyss! If her gameplay is not easy to understand, especially if you haven't unlocked her first constellation, she generates a lot of damage, especially in single-target. The heroine Pyro being more powerful at low HP, we advise you not to put a healer in the team.

Portrait Xingqiu Genshin Impact

Portrait Zhongli Genshin Impact

Portrait of Yelan
Yelan (5★) Hydro

Hu Tao, Xingqiu, Zhongli and Yelan are one of the best teams of Genshin Impact. Zhongli protects Hu Tao with his shield and lowers the resistance of enemies. Xingqiu and Hu Tao form one of the best duos in Genshin Impact. Thanks to the Hydro element that he applies with his elemental attacks, you can trigger evaporation almost permanently.

The same goes for Yelan, who will boost Hu Tao's damage and do maximum Evaporation and Hydro damage. In addition, playing two Hydro characters will give you a 25% HP bonus, which is ideal for Hu Tao: she gets a bonus ofATK based on her max HP.

But it is also possible to opt for Albedo instead to make a double Geo team with Zhongli.

Team Yoimiya : one of the best teams of Genshin Impact for aerial bosses

Yoimiya is one of the often underestimated characters of Genshin Impact. But in a team like Yoimiya, Yun Jin, Zhongli and BennettShe will do a lot of damage, even in the abyss. Being an archer, she will be able to hit enemies from a distance and from the air much more easily, like the Manifestation of Thunder. We recommend her especially for single-target.

In this configuration, Yun Jin boosts Yoimiya's normal attack, Zhongli shields her, making it easier for you to fire arrows, and Bennett provides healing while increasing damage. It is also possible to replace Zhongli with a Hydro character like Xingqiu to performEvaporation, but Yoimiya will not be protected by a shield. However, this Hydro character still increases the resistance to interruption.

Team Nomade : the aerial fighter

Released during the 3.3 update of Genshin Impact, Nomad (Scaramouche) is more powerful than Xiao as an Anemo DPS. You can play him with Faruzan to boost Anemo damage, Zhongli to protect him with his shield and Bennett to increase his damage and heal the team.

Nomad offers a unique gameplay as his elemental attack allows him to levitate and attack in the air. This makes it easier for him to hit airborne enemies. However, he can be interrupted and will be easier to play with a shield like Zhongli.

Team Itto: a team focused on the Geo element, strong for both single-target and multi-target

Itto is a hard-hitting character, especially when he unleashes his elemental rampage. To make him even more powerful, combine him with other Geo characters such as Zhongli or Albedo and Gorou. If you play three Geo heroes, Gorou will grant DEF, Interrupt Res, and Geo damage buffs with his elemental attacks. To complete the team, you can add Bennett to heal and boost damage.

Team Ganyu Reverse Melt

Ganyualthough released a while ago, is still in the tier list of the best characters of Genshin Impact. His charged shots inflict phenomenal damage.

Ganyu / Xiangling / Bennett / Zhongli is a team in Genshin Impact that works on the principle of reverse casting. You start by applying Pyro on your enemies with Bennett and Xiangling, then deploy Zhongli's shield to protect Ganyu. The archer will then be able to fire charged arrows without being interrupted.

You can also opt for Ayaka or Rosalia instead of Ganyu.

The advent of the Dendro element offers a new option; by replacing Xiangling with Nahida, you will also be able to perform Burn reactions.

Team Eula: a team focused on physical DPS

EulaEula, although a Cryo type, inflicts mostly physical damage. One of the best ways to boost her is to combine her with an Electro hero, like Raiden or Fishl, to supercharge her and lower the enemy's physical resistance. Mika is also a very good support as it boosts attack speed and physical damage. Zhongli will bring protection, but he can be replaced by Yun Jin for example to increase the normal attack of Eula.

Tier List the best teams from Genshin Impact for elementary reactions

In addition to the Genshin Impact teams built around a particular character, you can also rely on elemental reactions. This type of team produces devastating combos, which are particularly useful in multi-target DPS to defeat groups of enemies.

Team Nationale Raiden: one of the best teams in Genshin Impact

The "National Raiden Team" consists of Raiden / Xiangling / Xingqiu and Bennett. It is a variation of the national team, based on elementary reactions.

Thanks to the energy Raiden brings, you will be able to chain elemental reactions (Electro-Charged, Vaporize and Overload). You should try to trigger Xingqiu's Hydro aura and Xiangling's Pyronado as often as possible. Raiden will then be able to finish off your enemies with his elemental rampage. This is one of the most played teams in the abyss.

International Team Tartaglia

The international team follows the same principle and has this name because it contains 4 characters from different regions: Tartaglia, Xiangling, Kazuha and Bennett.

The gameplay is based on very strong DPS phases. To this end, the easiest rotation is to first cast Bennett's elemental rampage and his elemental skill, the same with Xiangling, and then Kazuha to gather the enemies.

Finish with Tartaglia, you can then cast his elemental rampage in bow mode. Then switch to dagger mode for about ten seconds to hit your enemies with Hydro.

The Bloom team: one of the best Dendro teams in Genshin Impact

Among the most interesting elemental reactions related to theelement Dendroelement, we find the Flowering reaction. The meeting of Dendro and Hydro gives birth to a Dendro Core that inflicts Dendro damage, then finally explodes. Nilou makes the most of this mechanic by considerably boosting the damage of Dendro Cores if you play only Dendro and Hydro characters in your team. This type of composition is ideal for multi-targeting.

You can formone of the best teams of Genshin Impact by playing Nilou with Nahida who benefits from an excellent Dendro application, Xingqiu, Ayato or Yelan in order to do more damage (especially in single-target) and Yaoyao, Kokomi or Barbara to heal your team. Since the Dendro Cores will also hurt your characters, it is essential to have a healer.

Team Budding

The Dendro element offers many other possibilities, such as the Boiling teams (Dendro + Hydro + Pyro). This reaction causes Dendro Cores to explode over a wider area of impact.

Thomas excels particularly in this exercise. Among the best budding teams, we find Kokomi (to heal and apply Hydro), Xinqiu, Yelan or Ayato (to apply Hydro), Nahida (to apply Dendro) and Thomas in order to make the seeds explode easily.

Electro-Charged Team in Genshin Impact

In this type of composition, the goal is simple: to inflict a maximum of Electrocution damage (Hydro + Electro) on your enemies. To do this, you usually play at least two Electro characters.

To doExuberance, you'll need Dendro, Hydro and Electro characters. This combo will do a lot of damage very quickly, especially if you have maximized the elemental control of your characters. For example, we recommend playing Yaoyao / Fischl / Xingqiu / Kuki Shinobu or The Traveler Dendro / Xingqiu / Fishl / Kuki Shinobu.

With this tier list list of the best teams from Genshin Impact, you now have plenty of options for creating fun and successful teams without breaking the bank at Primogems. Most of the 5-star characters on this list work just fine without their constellations. Just test it out and find out which Genshin Impact teams you like best!
