Subtitled the Frozen Ardor, Chongyun is now available in Genshin Impact.
A claymore wielder, he is aligned with the Cryo element. Thanks to his ability to apply Cryo easily, we think he's great as a support DPS alongside a Pyro main, such as Diluc.
You can get Chongyun from the Wanderlust Invocation banner.
The best weapons for Chongyun in Genshin Impact
Given we're using Chongyun as a support/Burst DPS instead of a main DPS, we've gone with the Skyward Pride claymore. As well as raising DMG, it has a nice little passive AoE proc that will remain after you've switched him out again.
For a more budget-friendly option, go with the Sacrificial Greatsword. Having a chance at resetting the cooldown of your Elemental Skill is always a bonus for sub-DPS characters.
Sky-ripping Dragon Spine
Increases all DMG by 8/10/12/14/16%. After using an Elemental Burst, Normal or Charged Attack, on hit, creates a vacuum blade that does 80/100/120/140/160% of ATK as DMG to opponents along its path. Lasts for 20s or 8 vacuum blades.
After dealing damage to an opponent with an Elemental Skill, the skill has a 40/50/60/70/80% chance to end its own CD. Can only occur once every 30/26/24/20/16s.
The best Artifacts for Chongyun in Genshin Impact
We've gone for a classic 2/2 pairing of Noblesse Oblige and Blizzard Strayer for this build, as it increases both Elemental Burst DMG and Cryo DMG.
However, you could also just run the four-set Noblesse, as that will empower your main DPS once they are switched back in following Chongyun's Elemental Burst.
(2) Elemental Burst DMG +20%
(4) Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.
(2) Electro DMG Bonus +15%
(4) Using an Elemental Burst increase all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.
Talent and Constellation priority for Chongyun in Genshin Impact
As a sub-DPS, you'll want to focus on maxing Chongyun's Spirit Blade: Chonghua's Layered Frost Elemental Skill first, as it is a huge source of DMG.
Then focus on Spirit Blade - Cloud-Parting Star, Chongyun's Elemental Burst.
Constellation-wise, you'll want to try and unlock both Atmospheric Revolution (C2) and Rally of Four Blades (C6) to increase the effectiveness of both his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst.
