Tier List: Best and Worst Characters
This Genshin Impact guide will teach you everything you need to know about the Tier List in Genshin Impact, which includes everything from Main DPS to Support. Sangonomiya Kokomi has been added to this tier list as of patch 2.1.
So you’ve got a bunch of Genshin Impact characters, but you’re not sure how strong they are. Fortunately, we’ve put together a tier list to help you figure out how your characters compare to the rest of the cast. Keep in mind that not all tier lists are created equal, as they are largely based on the preferences of the person who ranked the characters. Nonetheless, it’s an important part of the player experience, particularly in Gacha games like Genshin Impact, where you have no idea which character you’ll get per roll.
Let’s start by discussing how these characters are ranked. As previously stated, a tier list is largely based on the creator’s opinion. We considered their placement on existing tier lists in addition to our impressions of the characters and our experience playing with them.
Everyone was ranked at C0 on this Tier List so you could see how good they are right away. Higher constellation levels imply that things will only get better.
Main DPS Tier List
In Genshin Impact, the main DPS character usually deals a lot of damage and is the one who will primarily carry your team through the game. For these reasons, they spend the majority of their time on the field.
|S||Ganyu, Klee, Eula, Diluc, Hu Tao, Xiao, Kamisato Ayaka|
|A||Tartaglia (Childe), Jean, Keqing, Yanfei|
|B||Fischl, Ningguang, Razor, Rosaria|
The entire S-tier is the best of the best. Those characters deal the most damage and can carry your team through almost any content with minimal investment if a good support character, such as Bennett, is present. Those in the A-tier require a little more investment but are still viable; expect to spend a little more time building up their artifact domains.
The time and resins you’d be willing to put into the character to build it are referred to as investment. A high investment indicates that you have made every effort to obtain the best artifacts and weapons for that character, whereas a low investment indicates the inverse.
In high-end content, B-tier and lower DPS are rarely used as the primary DPS. Some of them are great for quick swap teams, but not as the sole DPS.
Sub DPS Tier List
In Genshin Impact, Sub DPS characters fall somewhere between a Support and a Main DPS character, and they can usually deal damage even when they aren’t on the field. They can deal a lot of damage, but depending on the team composition, they may be replaced by another support character. They should be a good match for your main DPS character.
|S||Albedo, Fischl, Mona, Zhongli, Venti, Raiden Shogun, Xingqiu, Kaedehara Kazuha|
|A||Beidou, Ganyu, Jean, Kaeya, Rosaria, Xiangling|
|C||Amber, Noelle, Traveler (Anemo, Geo)|
Sub DPS characters are crucial to the party because they supplement the damage dealt by the main DPS with buffs or effects that last even when they’re not on the field. Many characters in S-Tier can do this, such as Mona and Xingqiu, who deal a lot of hydro damage, and Venti and Kazuha, who can Swirl and group up opponents for an easier time.
In this section, A-Tier characters do the same as S-Tier characters, but with a slight disadvantage: they are hampered by either a high energy cost for their burst or a long cooldown in their elemental skill.
B-tiers and below are either more affected by this issue or are simply not worth investing in because other characters are better at what they do.
Support Tier List
In Genshin Impact, support characters are the foundation of your team. They’re in charge of keeping your team alive or dealing with the enemy’s constant elemental reactions. They help the main DPS a lot, and the rest of the party doesn’t have any problems.
|S||Albedo, Mona, Jean, Raiden Shogun, Venti, Zhongli, Kaedehara Kazuha, Bennett|
|A||Sangonomiya Kokomi, Xingqiu, Kujou Sara, Diona, Fischl, Kaeya, Sucrose, Rosaria|
|B||Qiqi, Lisa, Barbara, Beidou|
|C||Noelle, Traveler (Anemo, Geo)|
As previously stated, support characters are the backbone of your team’s composition. Because some of these characters can heal and boost defenses, having a good support character can mean the difference between life and death. Bennett, one of the only characters in S-Tier who can heal and boost your attack, is one of the only characters who can do so. Because these roles can overlap quite a bit with only minor differences, the majority of the S-Tier characters have already appeared in the Sub DPS tier list.
Support characters usually have a healer, a shield, or provide a lot of utility to the team. Diona, a shield and healer, Sangonomiya Kokomi, a powerful healer, and Kujou Sara, who can buff your party’s attacks but requires a little more setup than Bennett’s.
B-tier characters, like those on previous tier lists, have other characters who outshine them in their roles, making it unwise to invest in them. It’s perfectly fine to invest in higher-tier characters if you don’t already have them.
