Ganyu Best Builds

Charged Attack Focused DPS

For this build, you can choose between 2 route: regular dps build or dps specifically with freeze team. If you are going for regular dps build, sniping from afar and so on go for 4 Wanderer’s Troupe or 4 Shimenawa Reminiscence.

But if you are going for freeze team you can go with 4 Blizzard Strayer set and make sure to stay close to the enemy, inside Ganyu burst range since her Celestial Shower will boost Cryo DMG by 20% thanks to Harmony between Heaven and Earth passive.
