The Knight of Favonius is available in Genshin Impact as a 4-star, sword-wielding character with Cryo affinity. Here's what we think is the best build for Kaeya in Genshin Impact.

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. 

Skyward Blade

★★★★★

Energy Recharge

Sky-Piercing Fang

Crit Rate increased by 4/5/6/7/8%. Gains Skypiercing Might upon using Elemental Burst: Increases Movement SPD by 10%, increases ATK SPD by 10%, and Normal and Charged hits deal additional DMG equal to 20/25/30/35/40% of ATK. Skypiercing Might lasts for 12s.

Iron Sting

★★★★

Elemental Mastery

Infusion Stinger

Dealing Elemental DMG increases all DMG by 6/7.5/9/10.5/12% for 6s. Max 2 stacks. Can only occur once every 1s.

The best Artifacts for Kaeya in Genshin Impact

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.

Blizzard Strayer

(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%.

Noblesse Oblige

(4) Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.

Talent and Constellation priority for Kaeya in Genshin Impact

You'll want to focus on building up your Frostgnaw Elemental Skill first, as it's the ability you'll be using the most. 

Then, max out your Glacial Waltz Elemental Burst.

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

Your stat priority is Energy Recharge and Elemental Mastery, to take advantage of all that Cryo potential
