• Near-unbreakable shields that can withstand most attacks.
• Shield gives an unconditional All Elemental RES, which makes him extremely flexible to most team comps.
• Large AoE Geo Damage on Burst that can also petrify enemies.
• His Geo Pillar can resonate without other Geo constructs, which adds more DPS to mono-Geo teams.
• Shields are weak to Riftwolves' corrosion and Black Serpent Knight anti-shield mechanics.
• Long Elemental Burst animation that leads to DPS loss when built as a Support.
• Low Elemental Particle generation.

This support build for Zhongli focuses on strengthening the shields for the entire party. Though it does not offer the best damage, it enables you to have the most comfortable playstyle because of its near-unbreakable strength.

Dialogues of the Desert Sages offers a better HP bonus than most weapons, but since Zhongli can only use half of its effect, players can opt for Rightful Reward if they are searching for a weapon to use at full effect.

Mono-Geo teams usually require only three Geo characters and a flex role with a different element to create the Crystalize effect, but with Zhongli in the party, not only will he provide shields, but also reduce the Geo DMG resistance of enemies.

Zhongli also creates a unique mechanic when his Pillar interacts with other Geo Constructs, in which the pulsing effect spreads across all constructs. This effect can be used with Geo Traveler's Elemental Skill and Burst to cover a wide area and deal lots of Geo damage!

Vaporize Team

True to lore, Liyue's Wangsheng Funeral Parlor team, along with Xingqiu and Yelan's massive buffs for Hu Tao, is one of the best single-target team comps you can use with Zhongli.

Physical Team Support

Zhongli's shield can also reduce the Physical Resistance of enemies. A big issue with Eula is how open she is to attacks during her combos, but not anymore when Zhongli is on the team. This can apply to any Phys DMG team comp.

C2 ★★★ • Quick-swapping to Burst automatically sets your shield up.
C4 ★★☆ • Increases Planet Befall's AoE by 20%and increases the duration of Planet Befall's Petrification effect by 2s.
• Fixes the Issue with his Elemental Burst having a small AoE.
• Longer Petrification effect increases his crowd control capability.

C2 Lessens Weakness on Burst

Zhongli's burst is known to have a very long animation, tending players to lose overall party DPS if built as a Support. With his C2, bursting immediately resets your shield, which means you don't have to use your skill again that would have added to the downtime!

Geo Characters that Can Resonate

Geo characters who can create Geo Constructs can only resonate with Zhongli's Stone Stele, so if you want to maximize damage as a Sub-DPS, make sure to bring at least one of them for resonance!

Best Elemental Resonance Setup

Thoughts About Zhongli

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Baizhu ImageBaizhu Ah, Zhongli... Yes, I can tell he is very knowledgeable. He can carry a conversation even when discussing niche topics like ancient medicine. He must also have some habits and practices for himself when it comes to healthy living. The common headache or fever should pose no problem for him, so he doesn't need a prescription from me.
Genshin Impact - Beidou ImageBeidou You mean the gentleman from Wangsheng Funeral Parlor? My men sometimes speak of the rumors surrounding him — he sounds interesting. Yes, if I get the chance I'd like to meet him someday.
Genshin Impact - Chongyun ImageChongyun That Zhongli from the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor seems to be quite an incredible man. Just think, common folk might gang up to commit a murder, we exorcists vanquish demons - but he alone buries the bodies of the adepti.
Genshin Impact - Dori ImageDori About Rex Lapis
Before Rex Lapis parted from this world, I'd say a little prayer every morning: ''O great God of Wealth up above, please bless my day with more Mora to love.'' But uh, now, I guess I just pray to myself... ''O divine Dori right here and now, please bless my day with more Mora to count!" Hehe..
Genshin Impact - Gaming ImageGaming Mr. Zhongli seems like the kind of guy who had an expensive education. Seems like whenever I make a delivery to a teahouse or opera house, he's always there drinking tea, listening to the storyteller, and looking like the smartest guy in the room. Dude, I once overheard him talking to someone about tea - I was like, man, if he ever got talking to my dad, that conversation would go on all night...
Genshin Impact - Ganyu ImageGanyu About Morax
Trust: I have absolute faith in Rex Lapis. It was only through his leadership that we were able to repel the monsters and subdue the sea creatures, and thus protect the peace of Liyue. The sight of him protecting the masses, and the memory of our centuries of camaraderie... I shall never forget it.
Follower: All of Rex Lapis' decisions prioritize the welfare of all life in Liyue. That's what I admire about him the most. I want to live up to the same standard... but it seems that the harder I try to follow in his footsteps, the more overwhelmed I get and the more mistake I make...
Genshin Impact - Hu Tao ImageHu Tao Zhongli looks young, but his personality is a bit dusty. Knows everything, but doesn't fret over anything. Hmm... Couldn't be that he's a...
Hehe, forget it, whatever.
Genshin Impact - Keqing ImageKeqing The gentleman from the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor? Clearly, he's an extremely learned individual, and I do have a lot of respect for him. But his mindset is too traditional for me — he thinks in the same tired old terms as Rex Lapis did... If he were more of an original thinker, I'm sure he'd be a great asset to me in reaching my objectives.
Genshin Impact - Neuvillette ImageNeuvillette About Geo Archon
Nothing will stop me from rendering judgment on each of The Seven. As the Archon who won the Authority of Geo, Deus Auri must be called to trial. If one does not wish to see us on opposite sides of a conflict, they need not worry, for I intend to stay in Fontaine for the foreseeable future, which could well mean another four hundred years. As another point of consolation, even when the trial eventually takes place, it is still not a given that the judgment will lead to a physical confrontation.
Genshin Impact - Ningguang ImageNingguang Zhongli... of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. He's very versed in a great deal of affairs. Although... such excellent pawns are of no use to me until I know their weaknesses.
Genshin Impact - Shenhe ImageShenhe That gentleman claims to be a mortal, yet is very familiar with my master, who is an adeptus. Master once said: "If you see him drinking on a stone stool in front of my abode, do not disturb him. Let him sit quietly for a while." And that's precisely what I did.
Genshin Impact - Tartaglia ImageTartaglia Pondering: There's far more to that man than meets the eye. As for the extent of his power... lots to look forward to, I think.
Challenge: Tell me how has Mr. Zhongli been lately? Not bad, you say? Seems he's had no problem acclimating to "mortal" life. Hmph, he sure had me fooled. Such a fiasco mustn't be so easily forgiven! The only way to reconciliation is fierce combat! What do you mean I'm no match for him? Hahaha...
Genshin Impact - Venti ImageVenti About Morax
Have you seen that gentleman around? Huh? He's just a normal man by the name of Zhongli now? That must be quite the change for that old block-head. Come with me to see him, will you? I have a vintage I dug up from Windrise that I can take as a condolence gift. Oh, ahh... did he still seem strong when you saw him? How strong? Am I likely to get blown away?
Genshin Impact - Xiangling ImageXiangling I've come across a lot of fussy eaters, but Mr. Zhongli is very particular and has no problem getting straight to what he has to say. The first time I served him salt and pepper tofu, he took just one bite, and then proceeded to say: "It would be better to try sea salt extracted from the shallow seas of Guyun Stone Forest, because it would bring a fresh sense of depth to the tofu." I tried it and the taste was just so different! He's just amazing, don't you think!?
Genshin Impact - Xianyun ImageXianyun When Rex Lapis first heard of one's plan to take up residence in Liyue Harbor, he recited a long and detailed list of considerations for the furnishing and adornment of a home. Natural lighting, ventilation, bespoke woodwork, procuring porcelain, placement of plants and flowers... One's mind felt ready to explode from the deluge of information. Do all facets of life in the human world take so much effort?
Genshin Impact - Xiao ImageXiao Can I ask... Zhongli — what does he do with his days? Huh? Birds, antiques, flowers...
Hmm... What deeper meaning do they hold?
Genshin Impact - Xingqiu ImageXingqiu My father and brother entertained that gentleman as a guest once. From the way they were acting, he must be a very high-profile figure indeed. I also heard that he directs funerals for the adepti, so he must surely have great depth to his character. We should do some digging and see what we can find out about him!
Genshin Impact - Xinyan ImageXinyan There was this one fellow who invited me to perform at his place, back when there weren't many who would give my music the time of day. I was touched, let me tell you what. Like, hey, someone gets it! I agreed right away... But when I got there, I found out that he was the consultant at the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. What a weird guy. I mean, how was that appropriate?
Genshin Impact - Yanfei ImageYanfei Mr. Zhongli has so much in-depth knowledge on so many topics, he's like a walking library, you know what I mean? He's a total savant, though he never flaunts it. I could tell just by looking at him. People like him rarely shy away from taking on complex problems alone, so in my estimation he's certainly not a potential client.
And yet, somehow, I can't help but think I know him from somewhere, it's hard to describe the feeling... I asked my father about it, and he just said something to the effect of he didn't know either, though he seemed a little evasive. It was so strange... Anyway, makes me wonder if my father is hiding something from me. Hmph, alright then – if he won't tell me what's going on, I'll just have to find out for myself...
Genshin Impact - Yun Jin ImageYun Jin The customs of the opera are very particular, and are passed down from generation to generation. Sometimes I find that I only know the hows but not the whys behind what we do. But when speaking with Zhongli, it is abundantly evident that he knows the origins behind almost everything. Who wouldn't be delighted to have such a connoisseur in their audience?

Zhongli's Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Ganyu ImageGanyu About Ganyu
Liyue’s prosperity has not merely been built on Rex Lapis’ oracles or wisdom. It is also thanks to the countless servants of the Geo Archon who have honored their end of the contract. Of them, Ganyu is the one who has served for the longest time. If you want to know about her past… You should ask her about it. I fear my wording would not be delicate enough to receive her approval.
Genshin Impact - Hu Tao ImageHu Tao About Hu Tao
The current overseer of the funeral parlor? Ahem. I cannot deal with that child.
Genshin Impact - Keqing ImageKeqing About Keqing
She is the most impious of the Qixing - but I actually find the conviction of such people quite endearing. The only reason I was able to consider taking a step back from such overarching management of Liyue was because there are people like her. People who speak up when they believe themselves to be right, and then go and do something decisive about it.
Genshin Impact - Nahida ImageNahida About Buer
As well as ruling over all of Sumeru, the God of Wisdom, Buer, has a duty to guard Irminsul. Only one who possesses great wisdom could hope to shoulder these Responsibilities. All life in Teyvat owes her gratitude for saving Irminsul.
Genshin Impact - Ningguang ImageNingguang About Ningguang
Despite the multitude of affairs that she deals with in a day, Ningguang always continues to press on. A rare gem indeed. I'm reminded of the time that she used to walk barefoot from Yaoguang Shoal to the south wharf, trying to sell her wares as she went. Time is cruel to humans.
Genshin Impact - Raiden ImageRaiden About Baal
Time tempers all volition. Yet she would give up everyone for her beliefs. Perhaps it is for this very reason that she has come to where she stands today... Should the chance come by me, I too would like to learn of the Eternity for which she so earnestly endeavors.
Genshin Impact - Tartaglia ImageTartaglia About Tartaglia
Composed: That rascal from Snezhnaya has yet to depart from Liyue? Heh, no matter. Just let me know if he gives you any trouble. I shall deal with the matter swiftly.
Drinks: It's said that Childe and his reputation have yet again stirred up waves among the inner ranks of the Fatui. Knowing his type, he will be sure to swiftly depose anyone who dares to challenge his actions. Hmm... Come to think of it, there will be a lot of interesting news to be heard the next time we gather for drinks. Care to join me when the time comes, Traveler?
Genshin Impact - Venti ImageVenti About Venti
sniff' Tsk... It reeks of wine. That bard has just been through here, hasn't he? That drunkard is a disgrace to the arts. Oh... Has he tricked you into getting drunk? You're slurring a little. Wait a moment, I'll brew a pot of sobering tea. It'll be ready in only six hours, so just wait a moment.
Genshin Impact - Xianyun ImageXianyun About Xianyun
I hear many merchants of Liyue tell tales of a Ms. Xianyun. By most accounts, she appears proud and taciturn upon first glance, yet in conversation, people find her to be forthright and fair-minded, and they are pleased to make acquaintance. I am glad to hear this. But... I have also heard a great many accounts lauding her readiness to part with large sums of Mora...
Genshin Impact - Xiao ImageXiao About Xiao
You speak of the young adeptus of Guili Plains… 'sigh' Still fulfilling his duty to this very day. Please give these painkillers to him on my behalf. Oh, yes ー be sure not to let Paimon eat them. Nothing of this world can withstand the power of this medicine.
Genshin Impact - Yanfei ImageYanfei About Yanfei
Despite never having signed a contract with me, she upholds order within many strata of Liyue society in her own way, dispelling misconceptions and correcting biases... Should her father one day return from his travels, I imagine that he would be even more delighted than I.

This should be updated to include the new 4 star weapon, Dialogues of the Desert Sages. It's definitely a more viable choice for shield Zhong than black tassel. Sure, black tassel offers 5.6% more HP, but that only equates to like, 100 extra shield HP. and you're giving up close to 1000 base burst and 200 base skill and resonance dmg. not to mention Dialogues of the Desert Sages synergizes with a C6 Zhongli much better, which is starting to get more feasible since Zhongli has appeared 5x
