Subtitled the Plenilune Gaze, Ganyu is now available in Genshin Impact.
A bow wielder, she is aligned with the Cryo element. While you can build her as an out-and-out DPS, we like to play her as a secondary DPS and support.
You can only get Ganyu from Event Wishes, as a five-star character.
The best weapons for Ganyu in Genshin Impact
If you're playing around Ganyu's Elemental abilities, then The Stringless is an ideal bow. It ramps up Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG by a very sizeable percentage, allowing you to switch in, unleash the pain, then switch out again.
An alternative that has traction is the Favonious Warbow, which keeps your energy topped up.
Increases Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG by 24/30/36/42/48%.
CRIT hits have a 60/70/80/90/100% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12/10.5/9.0/7.5/6.0 seconds.
The best Artifacts for Ganyu in Genshin Impact
For this build, you want to stick with a 2/2 split between Noblesse Oblige and Blizzard Strayer.
The former increases your Elemental Burst DMG even further, while the latter ups your Cryo DMG Bonus.
(2) Elemental Burst DMG +20%
(4) Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.
(2) Cryo DMG Bonus +15%
(4) When a character attacks an opponent affected by Cryo, their CRIT Rate is increased by 20%. If the opponent is Frozen, CRIT Rate is increased by an additional 20%.
Talent and Constellation priority for Ganyu in Genshin Impact
For this build, it's best to focus on Celestial Shower (Elemental Burst) first. A massive AoE attack, it will help you deal with groups of mobs easily.
However, if you're struggling against groups, consider the Trials of the Qilin Elemental Skill instead. Upgrading it adds a taunt, which enemies will be drawn to, allowing you to focus on reducing the numbers around you.
The most important Constellation is Dew-Drinker (C1), as that's a primary part of your support abilities -- adding a Cryo RES debuff to enemies and regenerating Energy.
