Ganyu is a Genshin Impact character who is very solid and most importantly flexible, aka can fill many roles in his team.
Ganyu was finally released on Genshin Impact on January 12th. Similar to Diona, this character uses a bow and arrow weapon and has Cryo elements. But as a five-star character, he was of course much stronger than many other characters.
Sure enough, Ganyu is a very solid character and most importantly flexible. It can be installed as the main DPS, second DPS, or support. But regardless of his position, he can always provide consistent damage output and elemental effects.
In this article, we will cover the best builds for Ganyu in Genshin Impact.
Ganyu has two tools that become his main weapons, namely a charged attack that produces AoE damage and an Elemental Burst that has no down-time (active duration equals cooldown). What the best build for Ganyu on your team looks like depends on what you’ll be using and making the most of. As for weapons, apart from of course five-star weapons, Ganyu can use one of the options below depending on his role in the team:
Viridescent Hunt: This weapon is suitable if you want to maximize Ganyu’s overall damage output. This means that this weapon is suitable if you want to use Ganyu as DPS. The one thing you are looking for the most in this weapon is its second stat, namely the Crit Rate, which of course complements the Ganyu Ascension effect which increases Crit Damage.
Sacrificial Bow or Favonious Warbow: We include these two weapons because they have the same purpose. You are only looking for one thing from these two weapons, namely the second stats of Energy Recharge. The goal is that you always have enough energy to continuously use the Elemental Burst.
Ganyu is a character who has quite a flexible choice of Artifacts. He has many effective Artifact sets depending on his role in the team. But the stats you are looking for are generally the same, namely Crit Rate, Attack%, ??Cryo Damage, and Energy Recharge. Which stats take priority depends on what you need.
Blizzard Strayer (4): I think Blizzard Slayer is the best set for Ganyu, whatever role he has. The full effect of this Artifact is to increase the Crit Rate when you attack an opponent affected by Cryo. Since Ganyu had Elemental Burst that should always be active, he would be able to maximize this effect well. Not only that, for Ganyu himself, this Artifact maximizes his ability which has high Crit Damage.
Noblesse Oblige: Because it can act as support, Ganyu is also suitable to use Noblesse Oblige. Elemental Burst that can always be active will certainly allow you to maximize the two effects of Noblesse Oblige.
Wanderer’s Troupe: If you have a team that can consistently activate the Melt effect, you might want to consider Wanderer’s Troupe. But again, use this set if you’re on the budget or you have a team with specific synergies and playing styles and can really benefit from this Artifact.
