A 4-Star Utility character that also works well as a Main or Sub DPS early on in Genshin Impact.

A solid A-Tier in the Genshin Impact Character Tier List, Chongyun is dependable, and beloved by many Genshin Impact players.


The following is a solid build for those looking to include Chongyun in their team.

The Best Genshin Impact Chongyun Build

As stated above, Chongyun is a Utility character.

That being said, he is best to build with DPS in mind, focusing on ATK%, CRIT Rate, and CRIT DMG.


It does not hurt to have a bit of Cryo DMG, Energy Recharge, and Elemental Mastery for him as well.

The goal with Chongyun is to be able to pop off Spirit Blade: Chonghua's Layered Frost, converting normal attacks to Cyro DMG for Elemental Reactions.

Chongyun Best Weapons

Rarity Name Stat Ability
5-StarSkyward PrideEnergy RechargeIncreases all DMG by 8%. After using an Elemental Burst, Normal, or Charged Attack, on hit, creates a vacuum blade that does 80% of ATK as DMG to enemies along its path. Lasts for 20s or 8 vacuum blades.
5-StarWolf's GravestoneATKIncreases ATK by 20%. On hit, attacks against enemies with less than 30% HP increases all party members' ATK by 40% for 12s. Can only occur once every 30s.
4-StarPrototype ArchaicATKOn hit, Normal or Charge Attacks have a 50% chance to deal an additional 240% ATK DMG to enemies with a small AoE. Can only occur once every 15s.

The Skyward Blade increases all DMG, offering extra DMG after using an Elemental Burst, Normal, or Charged Attack.

It is a versatile weapon suited to Chongyun's play style and position in almost any party composition that includes him.

Sticking Chongyun with a 4-Piece Blizzard Strayer will ensure he gets the maximum value out of the Cryo Element with the following bonuses:

  • Cryo DMG Bonus +15%
  • When a character attacks an enemy affected by Cryo, their CRIT Rate is increased by 20%. If the enemy is Frozen, CRIT Rate is increased by an additional 20%.

The substitutes are for when players do not have a full set of Blizzard Strayer or are seriously only looking for raw DMG output for him.

The Best Chongyun Party Composition

Sub DPSChongyunCryo
Elemental ReactionXingqiuHydro

While Chongyun is powerful, he converts all DMG to Cryo when players use his Elemental Burst.


This works well with Klee, or even Yanfei, as a Main DPS, employing Melt to maximum efficacy.

Xingqui provides Wet to freeze enemies and can also provide a small amount of healing.

Diona provides protection and proper healing for the entire team, as well as provides Elemental Resonance to boost Cryo Crit Rate.
