Genshin impact has developed a full roster of characters since launching in 2020 and we’ve got all the guides you need to level up.
4 Star Genshin Impact Characters
Barbara is the most effective support character in Genshin impact currently. It provides a constant wet effect to enemies. One of the two musical characters of Genshin impact, Barabara uses his beautiful melodies to heal his teammates and woo fans. Most of her skills and abilities evolve with her maximum health, adapting Diona to the role of a paladin-type healer. Equipping her with artifacts to improve her health will make Barbara more effective in the long run.
Beidou is the leader of an elite Liyue-based pirate fleet, and an underrated electro character in Genshin impact. She uses a claymore to run through mobs of enemies and can deal massive Electro damage, while protecting herself.
Xinyan is a rock’n’roll star from Liyue in Genshin impact. Wielding a ruan, a traditional Chinese stringed instrument, she uses her music as a means to bring passion to the people and to rebel against prejudice. His kit focuses on protecting his allies as well as physical and pyrotechnic damage.
Diona is a bartender at the Cat’s Tail tavern in Mondstadt and one of the smallest characters in Genshin impact. This Cryo cat-cat wields a bow, providing massive AOE shields and healing for his team. When it comes to consistent Cryo status effects, no character does it better than Diona.
Sucrose is a 4 star Anemo character in Genshin Impact. One of the world’s many scientists, Sucrose researches bio-alchemy, creating life to aid him in battle. His kit focuses on grouping enemies together and creating Swirl reactions. She doesn’t do anything fancy and is quite underpowered, but isolating enemies in a specific area is unique to Sucrose.
The bow-wielding Prinzessia der Verurteilung and controls the lighting is one of the most powerful 4-star characters in Genshin impact. Fischl deals most of his damage with his elemental skill which spawns his Night Raven Oz. Fischl enjoys dealing electro damage while dancing around the battle with high movement speed.
Xingqiu is the son of the guild director of the Feuyun Trade Guild. He is studious and outwardly gentle, with an adventurous side underneath. He fights using the Clan Guhua fighting style and deals Hydro damage. His kit focuses on mitigating incoming damage while creating elemental reactions.
The Wolf Boy Wonder Razor is a flashy and powerful addition to any list of Genshin impact. If built well, Razor can be a downright disgusting damage dealer, dealing Electro Elemental Reactions consistently due to his short skill cooldowns. Being a four star character only makes Razor better because it is easier to make him more powerful.
Genshin Impact 5 Star Characters
Xiao is a 5 star Anemo character in Genshin impact. He is an Adeptus: divine beings who wield immense power. Xiao is a sworn protector of Liyue, who defeats demonic spirits all over the land. This demon slayer aggressively uses a polearm to deal massive damage quickly.
Mona is a mysterious astrologer whom the Traveler meets during his trip to Genshin Impact. She is unique in many ways and can travel the map faster than any other character currently available. Mona is a 5-star Hydro character who uses a catalyst and acts as a support for elemental damage.
Diluc is the main husband in Genshin impact and one of the strongest Pyro characters to date. Being a 5 Star character puts him at a slight disadvantage when it comes to wishing and upgrading constellations, but luckily Diluc is pretty powerful on his own. The Traveler meets Diluc early in the story and he plays a pivotal role in the Mondstadt storyline, being the owner of the Dawn cellar as well. Once a knight of Favonius, Diluc has since continued to protect Modstadt in his own way after his father’s death.
Albedo is the saving grace of the Geo element. Undoubtedly one of the weakest elements Genshin, Geo has been struggling for some time, with Zhongli failing in many areas and earning his place as a low-level hybrid.
Albedo is the chief alchemist, captain of the Knights of Favonius investigative team, and mentor to lovable scientist Sucrose. Albedo’s Toolkit is designed to stack Geo damage by having high defense and creating elevated terrain.
Venti was the first limited-stroke 5-star to be added to Genshin Impact. A major character in Mondstadt’s history, we meet Venti at the start of the game. Besides being a bard who could captivate his audience, he is the Anemo Archon.
Ganyu is the new 5-star character of Genshin impact. This Cryo character wields a bow and controls the battlefield with his abilities. She can use her elemental skill to distract enemies, and her elemental explosion is great for sustained AoE damage.
