Ganyu Build Guide
Ganyu Build Guide

Ganyu is 5 star cryo bow character, one of the best dps in the game. She’s way too broken, and mistake that mihoyo will never repeat again.


Ganyu DPS revolves around her charged attack. Hell, you can just spam her charged attack all day, not using her elemental skill + burst and still able to reach high dps potential. This is the reason why she’s so broken, and because of this leveling normal attack takes priority than other talents.

Ganyu elemental skill, Trail of The Qilin will summon ice lotus that continuously taunt surrounding opponents and explode after few seconds. You can use this elemental skill, step back and spam charged attack to the enemy surrounding ice lotus.

Ganyu elemental burst, Celestial Shower will continuously rain down shards of ice, striking opponents within an AoE and dealing Cryo DMG. Celestial Shower grants a 20% Cryo DMG Bonus to active members in the AoE, as described by Ganyu passive: Harmony between Heaven and Earth.
