Damage potential for Dendro reactions like Hyperbloom and Aggravate is high, and Razor in this build can work similarly like Cyno to trigger both reactions during his Elemental Burst.

Because this build focuses on Elemental Mastery, Razor's core use for Physical DMG would be ignored.

Razor's Talent Priority

For a Main DPS Razor
1st Normal Attack
2nd Elemental Burst
3rd Elemental Skill

Razor's playstyle utilizes his Normal Attacks during his Elemental Burst, therefore we recommend on leveling up those talents respectively. Afterwards, level up your Elemental Skill to deal more overall DMG.

Razor Best Team Comp

Razor Superconduct Team

Main DPS Sub-DPS Sub-DPS Support
Genshin - Razor Razor Genshin - Fischl Fischl Genshin - Rosaria Rosaria Genshin - Mika Mika

This Razor superconduct team focuses on dealing maximum Physical damage. Mika acts as a support with healing and attack speed buffs, while Rosaria provides CRIT Rate through her Elemental Skill and double Cryo resonance. Fischl acts as another Sub-DPS and a battery to recharge Razor's Elemental Burst.

Razor Hyperbloom + Aggravate Team

Main DPS Sub-DPS Sub-DPS Support
Genshin - Razor Razor Genshin - Nahida Nahida Genshin - Xingqiu Xingqiu Genshin - Baizhu Baizhu

DPS-wise, Razor gets more value if placed in a Dendro Team as he can build Elemental Mastery and CRIT Stats to trigger Hyperbloom and Aggravate during his Elemental Burst.

As such, his Physical DMG would be irrelevant in this team, but the high damage potential from Dendro Reactions compensates this loss.

How to Use Razor

Manage Electro Particles from his Elemental Skill

Razor Tap vs Hold Elemental Skill
Elemental Skill: Claw and Thunder

Razor's Elemental Skill, Claw and Thunder, generates Electro particles that will boost his Energy Recharge or recover energy depending on it being pressed or held.

Claw and Thunder (Tap)

Tapping Razor's elemental skill will create a small sigil that increases his Elemental Recharge by 20%. Razor can have up to a total of 3 active orbs at any time. Razor's fourth constellation gives a huge boost in damage by reducing enemy DEF by 15%.

Claw and Thunder (Hold)

The charged version of Razor's Elemental Skill will deal damage and consume all active sigils for a total of 5 energy each. This is important for maintaining uptime on Razor's Elemental Burst which drastically increases his overall DPS.

Elemental Burst Ends with Switching Characters

Genshin - Razor Elemental Burst - Lightning Fang
Elemental Burst: Lightning Fang

Lightning Fang summons Razor's inner wolf and drastically boosts his attack speed, Electro and Interruption RES and supplements his Physical Attacks with Electro DMG. While this provides a massive DPS increase, it will immediately end if you change characters and the Wolf Within will vanish.

Only Suited for Main DPS

Razor's Talents and Constellations are centered solely on improving his damage and offer no benefits to him as a sub DPS or Support. If you decide to build Razor then he will only be effective as the party Main DPS.
