Gorou Guide Genshin Impact : Build, Weapons and Artifacts

Gorou Guide Genshin Impact

Gorou appears in the second phase of update 2.3 of Genshin Impact. He arrives with great fanfare with Arataki Itto. But the Geo archer, far from being based on brute strength, is mainly a support character. The great general of Watatsumi's army confers Geo damage and defence bonuses to your team. With our complete guide to Gorou from Genshin Impact, you can exploit his full potential and boost your team. You'll know what equipment he's best suited for, what skills to mount, who to play him with, and more.

How to get Gorou in Genshin Impact ?

Baroud d'Oni banner to summon Gorou in Genshin Impact

You have an increased chance of unlocking Gorou in Genshin Impact with the Oni's Baroud event banner from 14 December 2021 to 4 January 2022. Once this opportunity has passed, you can always try the permanent banner.

Constellations of Gorou in Genshin Impact

We advise you to summon Gorou several times, in order to raise his constellations. The C4 Canine Lick: Goodness of the Water adds a beautiful string to its bow. Indeed, Gorou will heal his team with his elemental rampage. The healing is 50% of Gorou's DEF. This will make his ultimate attack similar to Bennett's.

His C6 Canine Valour: Faithfulness of the Land, meanwhile, increases your team's critical and Geo damage after casting Gorou's elemental skill or elemental rampage by up to 40% if you play at least 3 Geo characters.

What is the best equipment for Gorou?

Like most Geo characters, Gorou's build is focused around defense. Its passive Rendered Favor increases the damage of its elemental attack and its rampage according to its DEF. To play him well, do not neglect his energy recharge. Ideally, it should be at least 180%.

The best artefacts for Gorou

For a good support build, which effectively boosts team performance, 3 sets of artefacts are suitable for Gorou in Genshin Impact :

Best Artifact Set for Gorou in Genshin Impact : Shell of Opulent Dreams
Husk of Opulent Dreams

Artifact for Gorou: Emblem of Broken Destiny
Emblem of Severed Fate
Artifact for Gorou: Ancient Royal Ritual
Noblesse Oblige
  • 4 pieces of the Opulent Dreams Shell set: This is the ultimate set for Geo heroes. 2 pieces increase defence by 30%. With 4 pieces, you can benefit from the Curiosity effect. By accumulating it up to 4 times, you will get 24% more DEF and 24% more Geo damage.
  • 2 pieces Shells of Opulent Dreams and 2 pieces from the Emblem of Broken Destiny set: In addition to boosting Gorou's defence, you will increase its energy recharge by 20%.
  • 4 pieces Ancient Royal Ritual: The set increases the damage of the elemental rampage by 20% and the attack of all characters by 20% when triggered.

Whichever artefacts you choose, go for energy recharge or DEF% on the hourglass, DEF% or Geo DMG Bonus on the cup and DEF% on the crown. As for the sub stats, favour energy recharge, DEF, rate and critical damage.

The best weapons for Gorou

Best bow for Gorou: Favonius hunting bow
Hunting bow by
Favonius (4★)
Weapon for Gorou: Ultimate Sigh (5★)
Last Sigh (5★)
Weapon for Gorou: Sacrificial Bow
Sacrificial bow (4★)

Gorou's equipment in Genshin Impact would not be complete without a good weapon. You can definitely give him theFavonius Hunting Bow (4★). It will give him a lot of energy.

If you don't have it, you have two other options:

  • Ultimate Sigh (5★) adds 60 points to elemental mastery. Hitting an enemy with Gorou's elemental ability or rampage increases elemental mastery by 100 points and all characters' attack by 20%.
  • Sacrificial Bow (4★) provides a 40% chance to end the cooldown of your elemental skill after it hits an opponent every 30 seconds.

Gorou's climbing materials in Genshin Impact

To bring your Gorou up to level 90 in Genshin Impact , you will need :

  • 46 Perpetual Hearts, 1 Shard, 9 Fragments, 9 Pieces and 6 Prithivia Topaz Gems. Get them on the Perpetual Mechanical Matrix.
  • 18 Spectral Shells, 30 Spectral Hearts and 36 Spectral Cores. You can loot them from the Spectres.
  • 168 Coral Pearls, which you can find on Watatsumi Island in Inazuma. Find them more easily with Teyvat's interactive map. Gorou also helps you to locate them.

How to play Gorou in Genshin Impact ?

Gameplay of Gorou in Genshin Impact

Gorou is primarily a support character. He is mainly intended for a team of Geo heroes. With his Inuzuka's Integral Defence elemental skill, he creates a zone that grants bonuses to his team depending on the number of Geo characters in play, including Gorou. If you have at least 3 of them, you will get a DEF buff, RES on interruption and a bonus of DMG geo. The general's banner stays on the battlefield for 10 seconds and also takes 10 seconds to reload.

Gorou's skills in Genshin Impact

The elemental rampage Beast Fangs: Towards Victory summons a banner with the same bonuses, except that it will follow the deployed character and trigger Geo area damage every 1.5 seconds.

As an added bonus, thanks to his Nonchalance of Wind and Rain passive, Gorou, after casting Bestial Fangs, increases the defence of all characters in the team by 25%. We recommend that you start with Gorou's elemental attack, switch to another support character or your main DPS, then return to Gorou to activate his ultimate attack.

On the skill side, raise the level of his elemental attack and elemental rampage.

Which team should Gorou play in?

Unlike Bennett, Gorou cannot be placed in any team. On the other hand, his buffs will be superior to those of the character Pyro, if you place him in a Geo team.

Best team to play Gorou in Genshin Impact

We advise you to play Gorou in Genshin Impact with at least 3 Geo characters. We suggest you Arataki Itto or Noëlle as a DPS hand and Albedo as additional support. These three heroes, with a build focused on defence, will see their power increased thanks to Gorou. If you don't have them all, the Geo Traveller is also a good option.

Complete the team with a character from another element to generate crystallisation. For example, you can use a character from another element to generate crystallisation, Fischl or Raiden will be able to continuously generate Electro damage and recharge your characters' energy more easily.

If you like playing Geo heroes in Genshin Impact, don't miss Gorou ! During your sessions in the abyss, he will allow you to free Bennett and place him in another team. With the right equipment, Gorou can considerably boost the offensive potential of your team. We hope that our guide and tips have inspired you to play the canine warrior.

Hazulia Passionate about fantasy and science-fiction, I am constantly exploring many worlds in my head, in my texts and of course in video games! These last few months, it's Genshin Impact that takes up part of my days... But I also enjoy card games, fighting games, management games, manga, series, movies, etc.
