All Geo Genshin Impact Characters

Looking for the best shielders in the game? You can certainly count on Geo characters as they can put up reliable shields capable of taking the damage for you. In addition to this, there are also Geo DPS units available at your disposal, although some of them require a mono-geo team due to the fewer elemental reactions they can trigger.

Most of the individuals in the Geo Genshin Impact characters list utilize the defense stats to either strengthen their shield or increase their damage.
