Best Genshin Impact Ganyu build

This DPS build focuses on getting the most out of Ganyu’s passive talents, specifically Undivided Heart, which can be extremely powerful in the correct setup. The Amos’ Bow can be obtained in the current weapon banner, but you need to unlock it within the next three weeks

  • Weapon: Amos’ Bow
  • Artifacts: Wanderer’s Troupe

You want to equip the Wanderer’s Troupe artifact set which drastically increases Ganyu’s charged attack damage when fully assembled. Not only does this impact the Frostlake Arrow, but it also grants the same damage bonus to its AoE bloom effect, dealing massive damage to multiple enemies.

If you can’t afford the full Wander’s Troupe artifact set, you should be looking for artifacts that increase your Cryo damage, critical damage, and base attacks. Regaining energy isn’t as much of a priority thanks to the Dew Drinker constellation which quickly replenishes two energy after firing a Frostlake Arrow.

As for Ganyu’s weapon, we’ve gone with Amos’ Bow to deal as much damage as possible. This bow increases normal and charged damage by 12%, perfect for the bloom effect on Ganyu’s Frostlake Arrows.
