Genshin Impact Character Tier List

The following Tier Lists separate Genshin Impact characters by SS-Tier, S-Tier, A-Tier, B-Tier, and C-Tier.

Each section is further separated into Main DPS characters, Sub DPS characters, and Utility characters.

It is important to note that this list is based on character potential for min-max players.

There is no such thing as a bad Genshin Impact player, and this list should in no way deter players from using their favorite Genshin Impact characters.

Best Teams in Genshin Impact

Choosing the absolute best team in Genshin Impact is a hard feat to tackle.

There are many effective combinations based on the characters players wish to use.

A great way to start building a team is to choose who players want their Main DPS to be, then build from there.

For example:

Players selecting Hu Tao as their Main DPS will want a solid Pyro Sub DPS to compliment her since she works best at low HP.

Bennet is an excellent choice, as he can do a great deal of damage and is also one of the best supports in the game.

What works well with Pyro?

Hydro, meaning XIngqiu is a great choice for Elemental Reactions.

Jean or Qiqi can round out the party composition to provide extra dealing boosts, which Hu Tao regularly needs.

There are many great character combinations to experiment with and many great party compositions yet to be found.
