Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Jean

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Jean

The Acting Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius has come to Genshin Impact as a 5-star, sword-wielding character with Anemo affinity. Here's what we think is the best build for Jean in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Jean

Subtitled the Dandelion Knight, Jean is now available in Genshin Impact.

A sword wielder, she is aligned with the Anemo element. She's a fantastic healer and a solid tank, so we've built her to take advantage of that.

You can get Jean from the Wanderlust Invocation banner.

The best weapons for Jean in Genshin Impact

Given Jean's healing scales off her ATK, the Aquila Favonia is a good shout. You could also run the Primordial Jade Cutter too, if you're running a super-tanky build that loads up on HP as well as ATK.

A decent budget option is the Prototype Rancour, which also increases Base ATK and DEF for that tanky build.

Aquila Favonia


Physical DMG Bonus

Falcon's Defiance

ATK is increased by 20/25/30/35/40%. Triggers on taking DMG: the soul of the Falcon of the West awakens, holding the banner of the resistance aloft, regenerating HP equal to 100/115/130/145/160% of ATK and dealing 200/230/260/290/320% of ATK as DMG to surrounding opponents. This effect can only occur once every 15s.

Primordial Jade Cutter



Protector's Virtue

HP increased by 20/25/30/35/40%. Additionally, provides an ATK Bonus based on 1.2/1.5/1.8/2.1/2.4% of the wielder's Max HP.

Prototype Rancour


Physical DMG Bonus

Smashed Stone

On hit, Normal or Charged Attacks increase ATK and DEF by 4/5/6/7/8% for 6s. Max 4 stacks. Can only occur once every 0.3s.

The best Artifacts for Jean in Genshin Impact

Use Viridescent Venerer for the Anemo DMG bonus, as well as boosting the Swirl effect of her Elemental Burst.

Artifacts that ramp up ATK are also useful for this build, such as Gladiator's Finale.

Viridescent Venerer

(2) Anemo DMG Bonus +15%

(4) Increases Swirl DMG by 60%. Decreases opponent's Elemental RES to the element infused in the Swirl by 40% for 10s.

Gladiator's Finale

(2) ATK +18%

(4) If the wielder of this artifact set uses a Sword, Claymore or Polearm, increases their Normal Attack DMG by 35%.

Talent and Constellation priority for Jean in Genshin Impact

Focus on the Elemental Burst, Dandelion Breeze, first. You shouldn't even be thinking of maxing anything else before this, as it's a huge source of healing and the whole point of having Jean in your party in the first place.

After that go with the Gale Blade Elemental Skill, as it's a useful knock-up and pulling ability.

Constellations that boost Jean's Elemental Burst, such as Lands of Dandelion (C4) and Lion's Fang, Fair Protector Mondstadt (C6) are useful.

The best stat priority and substat priority for Jean in Genshin Impact

Focus on ATK, as the more you have, the more healing you'll do.

Stat Priority

  • ATK%
  • Anemo DMG Bonus
  • Healing Bonus 

Substat Priority

  • ATK%
  • Energy Recharge
  • CRIT Rate
