Genshin Impact Tier List (December 2020)

Who are the best characters in Genshin Impact? Find out with our Genshin Impact tier list, updated every patch to consider any buffs and nerfs. We factor in team synergy, overall damage output, support effectiveness, and other things like ability cooldown and reaction potential when considering the rankings.

Tier lists are entirely subjective. We try to be unbiased in our rankings, but a lot depends on who you enjoy playing. A character ranked low on the list might be one you want to play. Do not let any tier list deter you from playing a specific hero because they can all be powerful with the right gear.

At the moment, we believe Diluc, Klee, Qiqi, and Venti are great all-around picks that make great additions to any team composition. Your ideal team comp depends on which characters you have available and the artifacts you have managed to obtain. Without the right gear, a hero won’t live up to its full potential. Keep these things in mind when leveling your characters and deciding how to proceed.
