Genshin Impact Zhongli Guide: Build, Weapons and Artifacts

Genshin Impact Zhongli Guide

Are you looking for an effective way to protect your characters' health points in Genshin Impact ? Zhongli shines in this area: his shield takes most of the damage. TheArchon Geo also deals a lot of damage. He is an excellent support in any team! But to take full advantage of his potential, you'll first need to give him a good build. With this complete guide to Zhongli from Genshin Impact, you'll know which artefacts and weapons to equip on him, how to play him, etc.

How to get Zhongli in Genshin Impact ?

Zhongli was released on December 1, 2020. To hope to unlock the Geo Archon, he must be featured in an Character Event Wish.

Zhongli has a rerun in the second part of update 2.4 of Genshin Impact from 25 January until 15 February 2022. This will give you a small chance to summon him by making wishes in the Mountains and Markets banner.

Zhongli Constellations

Zhongli is one of those characters who doesn't need constellations to be strong. However, if you really want to invest in him, his C2 Stone, the Jade Cradle is quite interesting. Zhongli's elemental rampage in turn creates a shield. This way, you can ensure that your characters are always protected.

How to play Zhongli in Genshin Impact ?

Zhongli is a versatile character who fits perfectly into any team. While he can be played as a main DPS, we recommend that you use him as a support character; his normal attack lacks power.

On the other hand, his Dominus Lapidis elemental attack makes him a very good tank. The simple support generates a Stone Stele that causes zone Geo damage. It can resonate with other Geo constructs and these will then inflict Geo damage. With a long press, Zhongli also creates a Jade Shield that absorbs an amount of damage (physical and elemental) proportional to its HP. Enemies' resistance is also reduced by 20% and Zhongli absorbs the Geo element in his opponents, which can then break their shields.

Thanks to its Resonant Waves passive, each attack hitting the Jade Shield increases its strength by 5%. Furthermore, the effect can be cumulated 5 times. However, Zhongli's shield does not protect against corrosion. You will still lose health points.

You will also inflict a lot of damage with Planet Befall, Zhongli's elemental rampage. As the name suggests, a huge meteor crashes down on enemies. It immobilises its victims by petrifying them.

For a support build, mostly mount the elemental attack and elemental rampage (at least level 6). For this, collect Teachings of Gold, Guide to Gold and Philosophies of Gold in the Taishan Mansion dungeon on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.

What is the best equipment for Zhongli?

Zhongli from Genshin Impact needs to accumulate as many HP as possible in order to provide the best protection for his team. In addition, his Dominance of Earth passive increases the damage of all his attacks according to his HP.

The best artefacts for Zhongli

For a really HP oriented build, we recommend equipping 4 pieces of the Tenacity of the Millelith set. This set increases Zhongli's HP by 20% and, when an elemental skill hits an enemy, theATK of the whole team is boosted by 20% and the strength of the shield by 30% for 3 seconds. The effect can be triggered every 0.5 seconds, even if the wearer of the set is not present on the field.

An indestructible Zhongli shield requires feeding him lots of HP stats. Hence, opting for artifacts that could grant him the highest amount is optimal. In this case, equipping 2PC Tenacity of Millelith and Vourukasha’s Glow is recommended as each pair provides 20% HP.

For a more aggressive build, prefer the combination of two artefact sets: 2 pieces of Ancient Royal Ritual and 2 pieces of Ancient Rock. You will obtain a bonus of 20% for the elementary unleashing as well as a bonus of damage Geo of 15%.

In terms of stats, focus on HP if you want equipment that increases Zhongli's shield considerably. To do more damage, go for HP% on the hourglass, Geo damage bonuses on the cup and damage or critical rate on the crown. For secondary stats, look for critical rate, critical damage, HP%, attack and energy recharge.

The best weapons for Zhongli

In order to perfect Zhongli's shield build in Genshin Impact, we recommend weapons that increase the character's health points such as the Homa Staff (5★). This hast weapon brings a lot of critical damage and HP. Whether playing offensively or defensively, this is the best spear for Zhongli level build. The other 5-star option remains the Prismatic Piercer (5★), his signature weapon. It increasesATK and shield strength.

If you play free-to-play, you can choose the Black Tassel (3★) which directly increases HP. It will also be easy to mount!

To play more offensively, any hast weapon with critical rate or damage will work with Zhongli. For example, the Battle Pass weapon the Scion of Victory (4★) increases critical rate andATK and DEF by 16% if there are two or more enemies. If there are fewer,ATK is increased by 24%. Or " The Grip" (4★) which increases the damage of the elemental rampage by 16% and the CRIT rate by 6%.

Zhongli's ascension materials in Genshin Impact

In order to reach level 90 in Genshin Impact, Zhongli will need several resources:

  • 419 Lessons from the Hero and 2.1 million Moras ;
  • 1 sliver, 9 fragments, 9 chunks and 6 gemstones of Prithivia topaz as well as 46 basalt pillars to be recovered from the Geo Hypostasis.
  • 18 Blob Slime, 30 Blob Mucus and 36 Blob Essences;
  • 168 Cor Lapis to collect in Liyue. You are advised to refer to the interactive map of Teyvat to locate them more easily.

Which team should Zhongli play in?

Zhongli can be adapted to all the teams of Genshin Impact. But it will be even more valuable in teams where the main DPS has little HP and needs protection, like Yoimiya and Ganyu. It will also protect the two archers from interruptions.

The archon is also a good support choice for Xiao and Hu Tao who lose health points quickly because of their skills.

Finally, it works particularly well with heroes with Geo builds such asAlbedo and Ningguang. You can for example play it in a team of Geo characters with Albedo, Arataki Itto and Gorou.

What is Zhongli's birthday and height from Genshin Impact ?

Zhongli Profile in Genshin Impact

Zhongli is no less than Morax, the Geo Archon! He has made many contracts over the millennia. However, he has now chosen to live incognito among men in Liyue, where he is a consultant for Wangsheng's funeral. He is a very detail-oriented character who knows almost everything there is to know about Teyvat.

Zhongli is approximately 1.85m tall: he is one of the tallest characters in the game. He was born on December 31st and is said to be over 6000 years old. You can learn more about him by completing his 2 story quests.

To conclude this guide to Zhongli from Genshin impact, it can only be repeated that it excels as a support. Thanks to its shield, you will be able to protect your characters effectively and concentrate on attacking rather than dodging. If you are having trouble keeping your heroes alive in the abyss, Zhongli will probably save the day.

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.
