Genshin Impact Tier List for Version 4.6

4.6 Main Tier List Changes

Name Changes
Main-DPS Tier List revamp As more and more characters get introduced in the game, the previous tier list inflated most characters on the same tier in SS and S, which resulted in the boundaries between the two tiers being vague, and made the perception of A-tier and below into meaningless ranks.

This change makes it so the boundaries between each tier would be better pronounced, while still maintaining the value of characters in the lower tiers. S-tier is now the standard for the best characters, while SS-tier characters are merely the outlier in terms of pull value.

Our criteria has also been revamped due to this change, as it now greatly values a character's worth per resources used relative to their strength, longevity, Primogem investment, and ease of use for players rather than just pure damage potential. You can read more about it here.

Note that Arlecchino is affected by this change, but this change is not a direct result of Arlecchino's release.
Genshin - Arlecchino C0Arlecchino
Genshin - SS Main DPSNEW

Arlecchino's strong raw damage even in non-Vaporize or Overloaded (with Chevreuse) teams is exemplified by her wide AoE and swift Normal Attack strings despite being a melee character. While Bond of Life is a unique mechanic, Arlecchino's actual learning curve on her recommended rotation isn't complicated enough for her to work optimally.

For early-game players, Arlecchino's high-risk gameplay is compounded by the fact that she can't be healed from any sources other than herself, so her team requires a shielder or a strong support with interruption resist like Xingqiu (or with C1). Nevertheless, her base damage is high enough to make up for the slot you may use for the protection.

That being said, Arlecchino is currently the 8th Pyro on-field only DPS in the game having more or less similar team comps as the ones before her, and a similar performance as that of Hu Tao, who currently has the more premium supports, although Arlecchino scales better with more constellations. Pull for Arlecchino if you need better AoE coverage!
Removal of Characters within the Main-DPS Rosaria, Beidou, Kaeya, Chongyun, Fischl, and Nilou have been removed from the Main-DPS tier list to further emphasize their recommended main roles. They are still viable if built as one nonetheless.

Tier list has been updated to May 8, 2024.

Tier List Criteria and Notes

Tier List Overview Criteria

As we theorize and test characters, they are not treated as a singular unit but as a core member in their best team comp. In other words, characters shall not be judged in isolation. Here you can check the summary of explanations for each tier:

Genshin - SS Rank Icon SS Tier Characters that stand out as one of the strongest units in their intended team comps within a small amount of investment, who also has the edge of potentially staying relevant for long periods of time.
Main DPS: The sheer damage potential ensures that their longevity can be maintained, not to mention their great ease of use and comfortability to defeat enemies. They greatly utilize existing and any potential future support units due to their universality as they are able to be inserted in the best team comps within their respective elements.
Sub DPS: Characters who are the best Elemental Applicators and are also often the best teammates on several top-tier team comps, all while having good damage of their own.
Support: Universal buffers who are essential to increase most top-tier team comps' overall damage, and sustainers who offer the best talents to prevent your party from ever being wiped out.
S Rank Icon S Tier Characters that reach their peak strength with the recommended investment. There's only small rooms for improvement and they ensure that you can beat any content with ease.
Main DPS: The starting point of the best characters at the recommended level of investment. They can match up against the best characters in the highest tier, but only with the right tools.
Sub DPS: Characters with superb damage, or are often the core applicators for some relevant team comps in the game. There may be certain alternatives who are able to work better in a particular team comp.
Support: Offers one of the best buffs or sustain in their own particular niche, but are less accessible if put to other team comps.
A Rank Icon A Tier Characters who can only become strong with maximum investment on all aspects (artifacts, weapons, team comps) to achieve similar performance as the other characters in the upper tiers. This is the cut-off point for the strongest characters in their respective roles.
Main DPS: Requires max investment on both their own and all three of their other teammates to be able to match up against characters in the upper tiers.
Sub DPS: Good Elemental Applicators or damage dealers up until a point, who specifically shines in their own team comps. They are also often used in some niche or specialized team comps.
Support: Offers specialized buffs or sustain, but have certain limitations in their own kits that prevents them from being more universal.
B Rank Icon B Tier Characters with solid performance in their respective roles. They shine in specific team compositions, but not so much on their own.
Main DPS: Characters who require max investment, but may still not be enough to compete against the best DPS in the game due to limitations on their kit, stats, or talent scalings, and gets no sufficient help from current meta units.
Sub DPS: Decent Elemental Application and damage on their respective team comps, but are not entirely required on such parties.
Support: Characters who are good on their intended role, but sees minimal usage from the top-tier team comps versus the other characters in the higher tiers.
C Rank Icon C Tier Characters who can do the job for their respective role, but can be replaced quickly due to mere lack of good numbers from their talents or stats, or are stunted by their own cooldowns and energy requirement.
Main DPS: Damage scaling is lower in comparison, but are able to do their job in the right team comp. More often than not, it's better to pick characters who can trigger better reactions.
Sub DPS: Offers some manner of application and damage, but are stunted by their own scalings or rate of application.
Support: Characters who can offer sustain or buffs and are decent at doing it. However, there exists better alternatives who are easier or more efficient to use in the long run.
D Rank IconD Tier Characters with limited combat utility. You can use these characters if you don't have anyone else, but we recommend replacing them with a better character for that role.
Main DPS: Damage scaling is very low to be able to keep up, even against elite mobs.
Sub DPS: Extremely niche and offers no real edge in terms of damage and application against characters in all other tiers.
Support: Characters that have some manner of support, but are outright replaced with characters that are more accessible or useful in a given team comp.

Role Breakdown

Role Function
Main DPS ・The main damage dealer of the party, which is often the hypercarry, the on-field driver, or the trigger for Elemental Reactions.
・Damage dealt is mostly from the character being on-field for an extended period of time, often being the final character in your team's rotations.
Sub DPS ・Providers of off-field damage and utility via Elemental Application. These characters focus on helping the Main DPS trigger reactions by setting up the necessary elements, while also dealing damage of their own.
・Characters with Talents that stay on the field even after being switched out.
・Characters with damaging talents that are meant for quick-swap teams.
Support ・Provides support in the form of buffs, shields, heals, or crowd control via the use of their Elemental Skills, Burst or Passive Talents, and are primarily used off-field.
・Have Talents capable for elemental application, not necessarily for dealing damage.

Tier List by Constellations

Constellation levels listed in the Main Tier List are considered the ideal level for that character's role.
It is important to note that characters are evaluated in comparison with other characters in the current meta, and as such, may affect their rankings in all tier lists.
For example:
• Xingqiu's C6 is considered his optimal constellation and is thus ranked on that power level.
• Hu Tao and Wriothesley C1 open up new playstyles and combat rotations, and so it may be considered as the better starting point before they are assessed on their power level.

On Changes to the Tier List

Changes to a tier list is delicate and periodical, and we understand that any changes made to a tier is drastic and requires explanations. Below, you can find four scenarios within a patch's life cycle and our plan of action when it occurs:

Scenario Notes
A new character releases: Preliminary Rankings Expect preliminary rankings for a character when they first release. These will not be their final rankings in the version and will always be subject to change. As we'll need time to test their kit out, we urge our readers to treat the rankings on their first week as temporary. These will now be denoted with aNEW symbol.
A character's banner will soon end: Final Rankings Around a week before the new character's banner ends, we will be finalizing our thoughts about the character's tier.
While we call this as the final rankings, characters released in the future may affect previous characters' overall performances. Those characters will be subjected to change as well.
Meta Shifts Shifts to the combat system like new mechanics or the release of a powerful support character can shake up our tier list. A concrete example of this was Dendro shaking up the meta when it first released, resulting in characters like Shinobu, Keqing, and Thoma, to rise up in rankings.
Fixes Feedbacks that explain in detail why a character may or may not be in the correct tiering can be reconsidered for deliberation.

Initially we removed Raiden Shogun from the Support Tier List to follow through the ongoing simplification of the tier list, as most players who would play Raiden would focus more on her Main or Sub DPS capabilities (similar to Yelan as a Sub-DPS), but this change undervalued Raiden Shogun's support capabilities for her Energy Recharge and Burst buffs, and so we're quickly fixing her absence in this revamped support tier list.

4.5 Changes

Name Changes Notes
Genshin - Chiori C0Chiori Genshin - A Sub DPS The simplest way to describe Chiori is that she's a smoother Albedo. Her Skill works as an indestructible turret instead of a construct, with good potential for Crystallize creation for Navia teams (although C1 unlocks her full potential on such parties).

Her off-field ability's scaling is higher, while having a better Elemental Burst that actually scales on what she builds. Despite this, both she and Albedo are in the same tier, who as Geo users, are also unable to utilize their element that would help translate to more team damage.
Genshin - Albedo C0Albedo Genshin - A Tier Down Sub DPS Albedo is a dated unit in the game with a crucial Elemental Skill that easily destroys itself, and an element that currently needs help to be more relevant. Unfortunately, he directly competes with the newest character, Chiori, who has a distinguishible edge over him in pure damage with the same artifacts and weapons.
Tier List Criteria Revamp - Our tier list criteria has been revamped to include separate explanations for Main DPS, Sub-DPS, and Supports in each tiers. This new criteria has been applied with our recent changes to the Sub-DPS and Support tier list, although slight fixes or adjustments may be made in the future. You can read the new criteria here.
As the Main DPS tier list needs more careful deliberation, changes for it are planned to be made on Version 4.6.
Sub-DPS Tier List revamp - The Sub-DPS tier list has been revamped based on our tier list criteria changes. This change also removes characters like Layla, Charlotte, and Chevreuse, who are all better suited to remain on other roles.
