Who is Faruzan?

The blue-haired lady is a professor at the Sumeru Academy and a member of the Haravatat Darshan. Recently, she returned to the Akademiya after solving a puzzle and escaping the ruins that had trapped her for a century. Due to this, she is affectionately called "Grandma" in the Genshin community.

Faruzan is a decent Bow unit and can provide excellent support in battle. If you or your teammates are good at this character, then with the right build and understanding of the advantages and disadvantages, you can use her skillfully in battle. So first, let's talk about her strengths and weaknesses.


  • Elemental Skill and Charged Attacks help to effectively control the crowd
  • Anemo DMG increases for you and Anemo RES decreases for enemies
  • Its kit includes the rare Anemo Resistance Shred


  • Elemental Skill generates only a few elemental particles
  • The relatively high cost of Elemental Burst
  • Limited team comps
  • Very Constellation dependent

Best weapons for Faruzan

There are many good Energy Recharge weapons that can be used to boost Faruzan's Swirl DMG. Below is the full list:

Elegy for the End
Energy Recharge
Increased Elemental Mastery by 60. Gain sigils when dealing damage with Elemental Skill or Burst every .2s even when off-field. At 4 sigils, all sigils will be consumed and Elemental Mastery is increased by 100 and ATK increased by 20% for 12s. Once the effect is triggered, you cannot gain Sigils for 20s. The same buffs from the Millennial Movement series does not stack.
Favonius Warbow
Energy Recharge
CRIT Hits have a 60% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12s.

Faruzan also works well with these Bows:

  • Skyward Harp
  • Sacrificial Bow
  • Fading Twilight

  • End Of The Line

Of course, the best choice among all of them is 5-star Bow Elegy For The End. It is the best fit for all the requirements, which include Energy Recharge and base ATK. We understand that not every player has such a weapon in their arsenal, so if you don't have this option, you can choose an alternative one, namely the F2P weapon, Favonius Warbow. This is a great replacement, and you can get the weapon for free by completing A Long Shot during Prologue Act III.

Best artifacts for Faruzan

Unlike the large assortment of weapons, there are less than half as many artifacts. Here is the artifact sets that we recommend you use on Faruzan:

Artifact Bonuses
Main Stats
Support Build for Swirl
Viridescent Venerer
4-Piece: Increases Swirl DMG by 60%. Decreases opponent's Elemental RES to the element infused in the Swirl by 40% for 10s.
Sands: Energy Recharge or ATK% - Goblet: Anemo DMG Bonus - Circlet: CRIT Rate/DMG
Support Build Buffer
Noblesse Oblige
4-Piece: Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.
Sands: Energy Recharge or ATK% - Goblet: Anemo DMG Bonus - Circlet: CRIT Rate/DMG

Each of these artifact sets will be useful to you in its own way, especially if you have already chosen the right weapon. Among the others, we want to focus on Viridescent Venerer, as we think it is the best possible artifact to enable Faruzan's potential to utilise Swirl to deal DMG.

Best teams for Faruzan

When you are ready to go into battle and have created your build according to our recommendations, it is important not to forget about your team. Choosing the right teammates can ensure that you win without any additional effort.

Faruzan is a support tailored for Anemo so it is highly recommended to pair her with an Anemo main DPS. Here is the team we recommend:

Main DPS
Wanderer (Scaramouche)
Elemental Reaction

This is a well-oiled group of characters who depend on each other. Wanderer will act as the main DPS character, which will be supported by others. Faruzan will take care of Anemo Resistance reduction and DMG boost, and Yelan and Bennett will put additional buffs on Wanderer. Feel free to substitute the characters you don't currently have with similar units, such as Scaramouche with Heizou, or Yelan with Xingqiu.
