Best Build for Zhongli at Genshin Impact

"Zhongli is one of the best utility characters in Genshin Impact because it can provide strong Shield, energy and damage."


 Zhongli is a Genshin Impact character with very high defensive power. In terms of stats, he is tougher than many other characters. Not only that, the Geo element and skills that are getting stronger based on the number of HP also make the team that together with Zhongli need not be afraid of swallowing damage from the opponent. But besides that, it also has quite high burst damage and can become a team DPS if needed.

Here is the best build for Zhongli in Genshin Impact.

Best Weapon for Zhongli

Zhongli is generally played as a support in charge of creating a shield as well as a pillar of energy. Then if available, he will also use Elemental Burst to generate damage and more importantly make the opponent silent for a few seconds. Because it gets stronger based on the amount of HP, Zhongli does not have a weapon that synergizes with his Elemental Skills. Therefore, the weapon of choice should focus on Elemental Burst.

  • Favonius Lance: Zhongli has Elemental Burst with a short cooldown and a fairly short cooldown. But to make sure this Burst is always ready, you may need additional Energy Recharge provided by Favonius Lance.
  • Crescent Pike: Zhongli can also be installed as a DPS thanks to his fairly fast attack animation by relying on physical attacks. But in order to maximize his skill, you can use Crescent Pike which gives bonus attack when you get Elemental Orb / Particle.

Best Artifact for Zhongli

Zhongli has two different Artifact builds depending on his role in the team. As support, he needs Artifact which gives a lot of HP and Geo Damage. While for DPS it requires attack and physical damage. Each role also requires a different set.

  • Tenacity of the Millelith (4): This new Artifact set is clearly for Zhongli. This set not only provides additional HP, but also bonus Attack and Shield Strength when your Elemental Skill hits your opponent. For Zhongli, this effect will certainly be active almost any time.
  • Noblesse Oblige (2) + Archaic Petra (2): Before the Millelith set appeared, the Artifact choices for Zhongli support were a pair of Noblesse and Archaic. But its function is a little different because it leads to increasing Elemental Burst damage rather than increasing the Shield's strength.
  • Pale Flame (2) + Bloodstained Chivalry (2): For Zhongli who plays DPS, the best choice is of course a pair of Pale Flame and Bloodstained. Both of them provide bonus Physical Damage which is Zhongli's main source of damage if he wants to play as DPS.

Best Lineup for Zhongli

As a Geo character who can provide a very strong shield and disable, Zhongli actually fits into almost any lineup that requires a shield. But of course there are several lineups that have high synergy and damage with Zhongli.

One of the ideal lineups for Zhongli is Albedo and Tartaglia. Albedo can help activate Geo Resonance, creating a Crystal that provides an additional Shield, and also a Skill that generates additional Geo damage. To take advantage of this Skill, you need another DPS character who also has fast attacks and non-Geo elements. Well, that's where Tartaglia comes into play thanks to the Skill that makes her turn into a melee character with a very fast Hydro attack. Finally, to increase damage, you can play Bennett for healer and buff.

Apart from that, the lineup that is already effective with three characters will be very happy if accompanied by Zhongli who provides a thick shield.
