Strong Hydro Normal Attacks

Kamisato Ayato's main source of damage is his normal attacks. His Elemental Skill enhances this further by imbuing it with the Hydro Element, making it easy to trigger Elemental Reactions such as Freeze with a Cryo character.

Use Characters that Buff Normal Attacks

If you want to increase Ayato's personal damage, it is ideal to pair him with characters that can buff it even further. Yun Jin can buff his normal attack damage with her Elemental Burst while Rosaria can increase Crit Rate when using her Elemental Burst.

Capitalize on Electro reactions!

Yae Miko goes great with the Raiden Shogun because of the Electro Resonance and because Miko's burst has a high Energy Cost. Once you cycle through Miko's skill and burst, you can swap Raiden in and go all out!

Bennett and Kazuha also provide the best buffs for both Raiden and Yae Miko with minimal investment. It also enables the Overloaded reaction!

Activate Raiden Shogun's Burst Last

Focus on Getting Vaporize Reactions

Hu Tao's attacks get infused with Pyro when she uses her Elemental Skill. By adding a Cryo or Hydro Sub-DPS character, Hu Tao can trigger Melt and Vaporize reactions to increase her overall damage.

Using Xingqiu and Yelan's Elemental Burst allows Hu Tao to consistently trigger Vaporize reactions.

Get Shields Instead of Healer

Since Hu Tao's damage increases depending on how low her HP is, it's better to focus on providing shields instead of heals so that she can take more hits while also keeping her damage output high.

Keep Opponents Frozen

Ganyu is a heavy hitter, but as a Bow user, she would need the right environment to be able to continuously land hits to the most number of opponents. Use Hydro characters to be able to Freeze opponents when paired with Ganyu's Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst.

Make it Easier to Hit Enemies

In addition to triggering the Freeze Reaction, characters who can provide crowd control for smaller enemies and a shield for Ganyu can make it easier to focus on dealing as much damage as possible while avoiding taking any hits.

Strengths
・Zhongli and the Traveler (Geo) can create Geo Constructs to solve the puzzles around Liyue and also use it to reach higher places.
・Similar to Klee, Qiqi's Passive Talent marks out Liyue local specialties on the mini-map.
・Party setup has good HP management with Qiqi as a healer and Zhongli providing shields.
・Amber can decrease gliding stamina consumption as well as solve any Pyro puzzles.
・Zhongli's Elemental Skill can be used to quickly mine ores.

Zhongli makes exploration around Liyue easier as he can defeat the enemies that use Geo shields and solve the Geo puzzle found all over the region. Since the Liyue region also has a lot of high mountains, Amber and her Passive Talent will come in handy when you're gliding from different points of the map.

Strengths
・Kazuha's Passive Talent decreases sprinting stamina consumption while his Elemental Skill can be used to reach higher places.
・Kokomi can provide healing with her Elemental Skill.
・Beidou gives a shield and can use Electro attacks to solve Inazuma puzzles.
・Yoimiya can solve Pyro puzzles while also being able to take out flying enemies easily.

Most of the puzzles found in Inazuma require Electro to solve them, this is where Beidou comes in handy as she can use Electro as well as provide some shields against the stronger Inazuma enemies. Due to that a healer is also highly recommended, especially against the Rifthound enemies that deal damage that ignore shields.

Party Building Tips & Tricks

Start by Choosing the Main DPS

Genshin Impact - Best Team Comp - Main DPS

Role ・Main source of damage for the team.
Features ・Damage is mostly from Normal or Charged attacks.

When building a team, it is best to always start with the Main DPS and build around them. As the Main DPS they will be dealing the most damage and be out on the field for longer.

The Main DPS should specialize in combat, preferably one that can deal high amounts of damage with even just their Normal or Charged attacks.

Pick Sub-DPS with Elemental Reaction

Role ・Secondary source of damage.
・Sets up Elemental Reactions for the Main DPS.
Features ・Reliant on Skills or Bursts for damage.
・Effects of Skills or Bursts stay on the field even after switching.

Once the Main DPS has been selected, it's time to choose one or two Sub-DPS for your team. The role of the Sub-DPS is to set up Elemental Reactions for the Main DPS, they are also the secondary source of damage while the Main DPS is inactive.

It is recommended that Sub-DPS Elemental Skills and Bursts stay on the field even after getting switched out, so that the Main DPS can keep setting up Elemental Reactions.

Choose a Character that can cause an Elemental Reaction with Main DPS

Elemental Resonance grants additional buffs based on the number of party members of a particular element.

These buffs can help push a party's damage and synergy potentials to even greater heights and should also be considered when selecting the last characters for a party.
