Top Tier Titans


Since her introduction in update 2.0, Ayaka has remained a top-tier powerhouse. She excels as a DPS character and can even flex into a sub-DPS role if needed. With the right build, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better Cryo damage dealer.

Hailing from Inazuma, Kazuha quickly captured the hearts (and teams) of the Genshin Impact community with his impressive flexibility. When built optimally, this Anemo Sword user can dish out significant damage on his own. However, his true strength lies in his ability to enable devastating elemental reactions within a team composition.


Imagine a Hydro Bennett. That’s the power Furina brings to the table. Her healing and party-wide damage buffs are a game-changer, offering veteran players fresh team-building strategies. As long as you stay alive, even the toughest enemies will crumble.

Hu Tao


Hu Tao is a character who thrives on living life on the edge. Her damage scales with her health being below 50%, making her a high-risk, high-reward character. However, mastering this playstyle unlocks one of the most potent DPS characters in Genshin Impact.


Zhongli’s iconic Jade Shield ability remains a cornerstone of defensive team building. By providing unparalleled protection, Zhongli allows your DPS characters to unleash their full potential without the constant worry of dodging enemy attacks. This translates to significantly higher damage output for your entire team.

While the arrival of new characters always injects excitement, Genshin Impact 4.6 seems to be firmly in the grip of established powerhouses. However, with a growing roster, the potential for new team compositions and strategies is always on the horizon. So, keep experimenting, Travelers, and see who emerges as your personal top tier!
