Kokomi & Ganyu: Best Teammates & Team Compositions

Let's start by saying that both characters are worth your Primogems, they are part of some of the best teams in the current state of the game. However, they are in different circumstances.

After Cryo was left out from Dendro's reactions, it is likely Ganyu will be displaced from her spot as one of the best DPS. But by any means, we are saying she's not great, we're just saying Ganyu has seen better days.

If you get her we recommend using her in the following team:

  • Main DPS: Ganyu
  • Sub-DPS: Mona
  • Elemental Enabler: Shenhe, Diona
  • Support: Venti or Sucrose.

On other hand, Kokomi's popularity is rising now, even more, considering her Hydro Application work very well with the current Dendro Supports, in Quicken and Burgeon Teams.

The next team composition is pretty fun and explores the new elemental reactions:

  • Main DPS: Raiden Shogun or Yae Miko
  • Sub-DPS: Kokomi
  • Elemental Enabler: Dendro Traveler
  • Support: Sucrose
