Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Kaeya

Subtitled the Frostwind Swordsman, Kaeya is now available in Genshin Impact.

A sword wielder, he is aligned with the Cryo element. He's great as a support-type character, and ideal for exploration.

You can get Kaeya for free by completing the Crash Course quest, as well as from the Wanderlust Invocation banner.

The best weapons for Kaeya in Genshin Impact

Possibly the best choice is the Skyward Blade, a sword that increases CRIT Rate and buffs him significantly after using his Elemental Burst. 

A good budget alternative is the Iron Sting, which grants a buff when you deal Elemental DMG.

The best overall set for Kaeya is the Blizzard Strayer, thanks to its affinity with Cryo and the boost to CRIT Rate. 

Alternatively, you can run a 2/2 set with Noblesse Oblige, for more Elemental Burst DMG.
