|Recommended Weapons||How to Get|
Jean and Bennett's Elemental Bursts combined can cause a lot of Pyro Swirls around enemies. Jean's Burst will apply the Anemo element to the character while Bennett's will apply Pyro, which makes you automatically Swirl Pyro in the process.
You can use Main DPS characters like Raiden or Tartaglia to trigger multiple bouts of Overcharged or Vaporize reactions respectively.
This team comp synergizes well with keeping Xiao safe as he deals damage with his Elemental Burst. Jean will provide particle generation for Jean's Elemental burst and can also increase his DPS if she has her 4th Constellation unlocked.
Since this is a team that doesn't use Elemental Reactions, we recommend that you equip Jean with the Noblesse Oblige 4 piece set to provide Xiao with more ATK.
Increases the pulling speed of Gale Blade after holding for more than 1s, and increases the DMG dealt by 40%.
When Jean picks up an Elemental Orb/Particle, all party members have their Movement SPD and ATK SPD increased by 15% for 15s.
When the West Wind Arises
Increases the Level of Dandelion Breeze by 3.
Maximum upgrade level is 15.
Lands of Dandelion
Within the Field created by Dandelion Breeze, all enemies have their Anemo RES decreased by 40%.
Increases the Level of Gale Blade by 3.
Maximum upgrade level is 15.
Lion's Fang, Fair Protector of Mondstadt
Incoming DMG is decreased by 35% within the Field created by Dandelion Breeze. Upon leaving the Dandelion Field, this effect lasts for 3 attacks or 10s.
|Rating||Constellation Effect / Merits|
|C2||★★☆||When Jean picks up an Elemental Orb/Particle, all party members increase movement and ATK SPD by 15%.|
|C4||★★★||Jean's Elemental Burst reduces enemy Anemo RES by 40%.|
Buffs that increases ATK SPD are very rare in Genshin Impact. Jean's simple requirement of just absorbing any Elemental Particle or Orb will do wonders in increasing you Main DPS' DMG output!
Jean's fourth constellation allows your characters to deal more Anemo DMG to enemies. This is also a rare buff that helps Anemo DPS characters like Xiao.

The Elemental Skill, Gale Blade, allows Jean to pull enemies towards her and launch them to your chosen direction. Tap her Elemental Skill to automatically blow your enemies away. Hold it to pull and launch enemies off a platform, towards the water, the sky, or the wall!
Take note that enemies launched will take fall damage as they hit the ground.
Elemental Burst: Dandelion Breeze
Jean's Elemental Burst, Dandelion Breeze, sets up a large Anemo AoE and provides heavy heals over time. Damage is also dealt to enemies entering or exiting the field.
Since Jean's healing ability scales with ATK, her elemental burst and ability to heal herself and the party gives Jean tank-like qualities in solo play, and especially in multiplayer.
Normal Attack: Favonius Bladework
Aside from dealing heavy damage with her normal attacks, Jean's charged attack can lift enemies up as well. This gives you a chance to use her Elemental Skill to launch your enemies away!
For larger enemies like Mitachurls, you need to do her charged attack twice to completely topple them!
Passive Talent: Guiding Breeze
Jean's Passive Talent, Guiding Breeze, grants a 12% chance of obtaining double the expected number of items when cooking recovery food. This further boosts Jean's overall party utility.

|Banner Info||Wish Sim||All Wishes|
|Albedo||Jean? She has served exceptionally well as Acting Grand Master, one can even say she is more reliable than Grand Master Varka. Perhaps in our hearts, we all eagerly await the day she can become the official Grand Master herself.|
Help: After the Grand Master left on his expedition, all the affairs of the Knights of Favonius, both big and small, have been left up to Jean. If only there was more I could do to help her...
Care: Jean might still be working? We should invite her for coffee... Let's go.
|Barbara||Acting Grand Master... Leader of the Knights of Favonius... Everyone seems to like her a lot. Oh? Me? I... Of course I have nothing but admiration for her!|
|Bennett||I keep meaning to ask Master Jean for some help with the Mondstadt Adventurers' Guild, but I don't know how to go about it. The Guild doesn't have as many rules and regulations as the Knights of Favonius, the dads and I are pretty laid back about everything. Pretty sure that attitude wouldn't fly with Jean though... I guess I should read up on the Knights' etiquette or something?|
Enemies: Trifling matters can become Jean's greatest enemy.
Responsibilities: Her unparalleled sense of responsibility is the sole reason why she still hasn't found her true calling.
|Diona||Acting Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius... A rare, mature adult who doesn't drink... But perhaps a little too earnest, cause is it just me, or are the Knights overdoing it a bit on protecting me?|
|Eula||The Acting Grand Master's family and mine are sworn enemies. But she draws a clear line between professional and personal matters. She saw I was capable, admitted me into the Knights, and gave me lots of opportunities. So, when the time comes for vengeance, I'll afford her a reasonably soft landing.|
|Kaeya||What? The Acting Grand Master? You need to give her your full support.|
|Klee||Master Jean is the best! But she's also a little bit scary.|
|Lisa||Jean is a gifted and dedicated leader. Seeing how hard she works makes even me want to help her out.|
|Mona||You mean the Acting Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius? her constellation is Leo Minor, which represents strength and responsibility shouldered too young... Though the lioness has been separated from her ride for a long time, she grows from strength to strength, and the day will come when she is ready to return as its glorious leader.|
|Ningguang||The Acting Grand Master of Mondstadt, a strict and impeccable woman. Her flawless etiquette knows no fault, even her letters are meticulously written and creased according to the prescribed rules. It is such easily overlooked details that offer a glimpse into the true qualities of one's character.|
|Noelle||Master Jean has always been my role model, both in terms of ability and dedication. She holds herself and others to the same high standards, so if there ever comes a day when I meet with her approval, it will be the ultimate acknowledgement of all my efforts so far. Until then, there's no room for complacency!|
|Rosaria||She's not only competent in her own work but also somehow manages to clear up various matters for others... Huh. Now that's a woman who deserves admiration.|
|Sucrose||I don't dare talk to Master Jean that much, because she's so strict. I know she's a good person and all — I know that, I do — but... I still find her scary. I don't tend to bother her, and even when I have to... I ask Albedo to go on my behalf.|
|Thoma||Oh, so Jean from the Gunnhildr Clan is the Master of the Knights of Favonius now? She definitely deserves it, she's known all over for her impeccable conduct... Oh, just the ''Acting'' Grand Master? Haha, well, someone of her standing won't care about titles.|
|Venti||Acting Grand Master Jean... Well, what do you think of her? Yes, I couldn't agree more: conscientious, courageous... kind and considerate too. Reminds me of another good friend...|
Sometimes I feel that terms like "genius" were originally created for Albedo.
I must say that Amber's development has impressed me recently. I hope that one day, her deeds will become the words of a bard's tale.
Barbara is a hard worker, but I feel she's too hard on herself sometimes... What? You ask me how I know all of this? It's because the order also manages the Church.
Disillusion: Master Diluc has his reasons for being so critical of the Knights of Favonius. I am not proud of the way things went, but I cannot change the past. All I can do is keep working hard, in the hope he may one day see us in a better light... This is my duty.
Respect: Master Diluc is my senior, and I have the utmost respect for him. Though we have gone separate ways, I can sense we share the same strong commitment to protecting Mondstadt at all costs.
Eula? Um... Please, do not hold her unfortunate background against her. The Knights of Favonius evaluate each person impartially. Eula has a clear sense of right and wrong and is more talented than most. The controversial statements that she makes from time to time are just a product of her personality. For instance, she always mentions wanting to challenge me, but I do not mind.
Is that right...? Kaeya also gave you some suggestions. He is an excellent knight after all — this is a fact no one can deny.
Though it may be said that it is in a child's nature to play, the things Klee plays with are far from toys. I can never take my eye off her.
When Lisa is around, I always have peace of mind.
The Grand Master placed Mika on the front line of the expedition team not simply because he met the requirements of the mission --more importantly, he was impressed by Mika's hardworking and grounded nature. From my own perspective, I feel very honored to work with someone like him.
Noelle... She's very trying in her pursuit to become a Knight of Favonius. However, I fear she is not quite ready for the dangers that lie beyond Mondstadt's walls.
Some may see Sister Rosaria as one who complains about how bothersome her work is, but she does her job well. Last time I saw her I told her she could come find me should she ever need help, to which she simply replied that doing so would be even more bothersome. I need to work harder to become of more assistance to the people of Mondstadt.
Sucrose is also a rare talent in the field of alchemy. Under Albedo's mentorship, she is sure to flourish. I am sure her future will be bright. The only thing is... Ahem, I was momentarily lost in thought. It is nothing. Nothing bad, anyway.
Grand Master Varka is the legend of his generation. On the day of his triumphant return, I shall be sure to personally introduce you to him. I’m sure you too will be in awe of his greatness.
