• Regenerates Energy fast to use his burst off-cooldown.
• Best Crowd Control for lighter enemies with Elemental Burst.
• Can fit in any team comp if AoE crowd control is required.
• Elemental Skill creates a wind current for exploration.
|• Elemental Burst is not good against heavier enemies or single-target bosses.|
Venti's best asset is his Elemental Burst, and improving either its Swirl or CRIT damage is crucial to his build choices.
Venti's DPS and Support builds use Viridescent Venerer as his best artifact, so it's up to your current available weapons and artifact stats should you wish to use him with a specific build.
Sands: Elemental Mastery
Goblet: Elemental Mastery
Circlet: Elemental Mastery
|Substats||Elemental Mastery, Energy Recharge, ATK%, CRIT Rate, CRIT DMG|
This sub-DPS build for Venti focuses on stacking as much Elemental Mastery as possible for his Elemental Absorption damage. Using Elemental Mastery offers the best damage against multiple enemies.
2. Skyward Harp
Goblet: Anemo DMG Bonus
Circlet: CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG
|Substats||CRIT Rate, CRIT DMG, Elemental Mastery, Energy Recharge|
You may use a CRIT build if you cannot find Elemental Mastery main stat artifacts yet. It still offers good damage and may compete with the Elemental Mastery build with enough investment.
|Sub-DPS & Support|
Venti's Elemental Burst is a defining tool for dealing damage and utility, and should be prioritized accordingly. His Elemental Skill also deals high damage, and leveling it up can be valuable. His Normal Attack will be barely used, so it can be ignored or saved for last.

|Recommended Weapons||How to Get|
Venti is a staple for different Freeze comps thanks to his ability to absorb and Swirl Cryo while enemies are applied with Hydro.
Team comps consisting of multiple unique elements to create concoctions of Elemental Reactions like Electro-Charged + Vaporize are good with Venti's Elemental Burst. Characters like Ayato or Layla can provide wide AoE coverage to multiple enemies at once.

|Rating||Constellation Effect / Merits|

Elemental Burst: Wind's Grand Ode
Venti's Elemental Burst, Wind's Grand Ode, creates a vortex that sucks in all surrounding enemies within range. The vortex deals massive damage and absorbs Cryo, Hydro, Electro, and Pyro Elements, dealing additional damage to enemies trapped inside.
Enemies with elemental auras, like slimes, will immediately imbue their element into the vortex and will be immune to the additional elemental damage. Triggering elemental reactions in the vortex is the best way to deal with pesky elemental auras.
Elemental Skill: Skyward Sonnet
Venti's Elemental Skill, Skyward Sonnet, can be used to create air currents for exploration. Players in search of treasure chests and oculi can take advantage of this skill to reach high places that would otherwise be difficult to reach.
It can also be used to dodge enemies while also gathering them together. You can plunge down on them to deal extra damage!
Passive Talent: Windrider
Venti's Passive Talent, Windrider, reduces the gliding stamina consumption of all party members by 20%. This allows for easy gliding throughout Teyvat, especially in mountainous Liyue.
Passive Talent: Stormeye
The Passive Talent, Stormeye, regenerates 15 Energy for Venti and an additional 15 Energy to the character whose element gets absorbed by Venti's Elemental Burst.
Elemental Talents Best Against Mobs
Venti shines best against mobs like the Treasure Hoarders, the Fatui, Nobushi, and Hilichurls. He can use Skyward Sonnet or Wind's Grand Ode to gather them together in a single area!

|Barbara||Venti's voice is amazing! But the songs he sings and the ones I'm good at are very different. I tried to learn them but... the melodies are just so complicated.|
|Diona||Venti? I'm not familiar with him... He's a bard? Oh, he must be that guy who sings tunes to entertain the drunkards. Well, then I don't like him, no no no...|
I heard that bard sing a few songs about the Lawrence Clan...
They were lighthearted and funny stories that mocked the clan in a way I've never heard anyone else do. Even I couldn't help but burst out laughing... And for this, he must pay!
About the Anemo Archon
Since Rex Lapis left us, the question of Liyue's future has been on my mind constantly. In addition to reviewing his own past deeds, I've been researching the other archons' modes of governance, too. Mondstadt's god is the one who baffles me the most though — how exactly do any of his actions contribute to the longevity of Mondstadt? It's completely beyond me.
|Mona||Venti? The bard that sits around doing nothing all day? What's so interesting about him? Sure, I guess I can take a look... Huh, that's weird, the scryglass, it's... I can't see a thing... this wind... i can't... open my eyes! No, my hat! Ah! My clothes, stop! The wind's going to strip all my clothes off! Make it stop, make it stop! ... Alright! I'll never do this again!|
About Anemo Archon
I shall fulfill my vow to judge all of The Seven in turn, even if the sky should fall and the ground give way. As the recipient of the Authority of Anemo, the God of Breeze and Hope must also stand trial....Hmm? He spends most of his time being a harmless drunkard? Well, even so, I must meet him for myself and proceed from there.
|Razor||Razor doesn't know poems, but... Lupical likes them.|
|Rosaria||There's something extremely interesting about this bard... I can't quite put my finger on it. There's something that makes him different from the others in Mondstadt.|
|Xiao||Venti? So that's the name he goes by. His tunes are... forget it.|
|Zhongli||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.|
How do you explain white chalk in black soil, or the earth's dense crust amidst the emptiness of space? Same reason the purest soil gave birth to human life... It's an ancient power with unmistakable properties. Trying to harness it is dangerous indeed, I can't imagine what would happen if someone lost control of it in the city... Ah, never mind! What goes on within Mondstadt's walls is up to Mondstadt's people to deal with!
The darling Deaconess with the sweet singing voice — do you know her? You do? Idol, huh? Meet and greets? Concerts? Wow... That's the power of music for you...
I'm not surprised you want to befriend Master Diluc. Just think of all the vintage wine he must have stored away... Mwuhahaha... Huh? He doesn't let you sample it? Not even the slightest drop? Huh... Well, I guess you can still appreciate the aroma. That's still better than no wine at all, right? No?
There's a special drink known far and wide at Cat's Tail. But it ah... ahh... ACHOO! 'sniffs' How about you go and fetch one for me? I'll be truly thankful, I promise.
Eula has good taste when it comes to beverages of the alcoholic variety. Come summer or winter, she always likes them ice-cold. That's rare among Mondstadters these days! She and I would make great drinking buddies. Huh? My songs about the Lawrence clan… She's heard them already? Eh, no harm done. Maybe she and I can do a duet sometime!
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...
Oh, that astrologer? How should I put it? Fortune-telling and my singing are the same: Both lead to you being so poor you can't even cough up the money for a drink! ... You think that astrology is a cultural tradition, so at least still has some value? Hmph, so rude. In that case, so too is singing, so it still has its value too!
The first thing you think of when you hear "Dendro Archon" is her power over dreams. Her dreams are akin to my ballads: full of emotion and imagination. It goes without saying that we get along really well.
So, I hear you defeated the mighty Raiden Shogun? Ah, I recall the days when she was a kagemusha, seeking to perfect her martial prowess. Hehe, she now no doubt employs a wide range of reasoning to get you to train with her. Oh but yes, come close and I shall let you in on her weakness – desserts!
Ah yes, the white-haired fellow from Wolvendom? Raised by wolves? Really? ... No wonder his scent is so familiar...
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?
