This Wanderer build not only deals DMG through his Normal Attacks, but buffs other elements in the party through triggering Swirls. This build is a great alternative especially for teams that rely heavily on Elemental Reactions.

Wanderer (Scaramouche)'s Talent Priority

Main DPS
1st Normal Attack & Elemental Skill
2nd Elemental Burst

All of the Wanderer's talents should be upgraded as he can manage to use all of them to deal a lot of DMG. His Normal Attacks and Elemental Skill should be prioritized first as they are the main source of his DPS.

3rd Genshin - Desert Pavilion Chronicle Image Desert Pavilion Chronicle 2-PC: Anemo DMG Bonus +15%
Genshin - Viridescent Venerer Image Viridescent Venerer 2-PC: Anemo DMG Bonus +15%

Desert Pavilion Chronicle set is Wanderer's best artifact. Because the bulk of his DMG come from his Normal and Charged Attacks, this artifact set greatly increases Wanderer's performance as an Anemo Main DPS!

Using the Viridescent Venerer is a good alternative especially if you use the Wanderer on teams that focus on Swirl reactions. However, using Viridescent lowers his own personal DMG.

Wanderer (Scaramouche) Best Teams

Best Team Comps for Wanderer (Scaramouche)

Wanderer (Scaramouche) Main DPS Teams

Because of Wanderer's flexibility to be slotted into multiple team comps due to his ascension passive, you will either want a mix of two different elements of Pyro, Cryo, Electro, or Hydro, or another Anemo that can support him.

Most of the his teams require either Faruzan or Bennett as their abilities to increase Anemo DMG and ATK respectively will greatly benefit his DPS.

Best Team Comps

Main DPS Sub-DPS Support Support
Genshin - Wanderer Wanderer Genshin - Faruzan Faruzan Genshin - Bennett Bennett Genshin - Thoma Thoma
Genshin - Wanderer Wanderer Genshin - Faruzan Faruzan Genshin - Bennett Bennett Genshin - Zhongli Zhongli

Because of his below average resistance to interruption when floating, having Wanderer be protected with a shield is an option to ease this worry, but you will need Faruzan and Bennett to cover the lack of DPS from the shielders.

Double Pyro Wanderer (Scaramouche) Team

Main DPS Sub-DPS Sub-DPS Support
