The Wanderer, formerly known as Scaramouche, has returned to Genshin Impact on the event wish banner as a playable character. He is a 5-star Anemo character who wields a Catalyst as his weapon of choice. As a main DPS, he is as selfish as Xiao when it comes to on-field time, thanks to the new hovering mechanics introduced in his kit by the developers at HoYoverse.

When he casts his Elemental Skill, he can hover and deal damage while flying in the air. Meanwhile, his Element Burst deals massive AoE Anemo damage to enemies caught within its range.

This article will outline the five best team compositions for Wanderer in Genshin Impact that players can follow.

Genshin Impact: 5 best team comps where Wanderer will shine

Looking at Wanderer's kit, it seems that the 5-star Anemo character is meant to be played as an on-field damage dealer. His kit demands a lot of on-field time in Genshin Impact.

Hence, teams should be built around him as he will be the main damage dealer due to his on-field abilities.

1) Wanderer Hypercarry

Players can go for this team composition if they wish to use their Wanderer as a Hypercarry unit in Genshin Impact. The roster will include the following characters to support him:

  • Faruzan: Anemo battery & buffer
  • Zhongli: Shields
  • Bennett: Healing and ATK buff

Faruzan provides off-field crowd control abilities to Wanderer to ensure no damage output goes to waste. However, the former has a ton of energy issues until she reaches C6. Hence, players who don't have a C6 Faruzan can swap her with a Yunjin instead who can provide buffs to increase Normal ATK damage.


2) Wanderer Freeze Team

In the Cryo team, Wanderer takes advantage of frozen enemies because he can deal damage and no one can interrupt or knock him down while he's airborne. Hence, Genshin Impact players can use the following characters to build an ideal freeze team for him:

  • Layla: Cryo Sub-DPS
  • Xingiqu: Hydro enabler
  • Rosaria: Sub-DPS/ Crit buffer

With Cryo resonance and Wanderer's own ascension passive, players don't need to worry about Crit-Rate in this team and can focus more on building Crit-DMG.

In addition to providing shields, Layla will also apply tons of Cryo with her kit and Xingqiu will provide resistance to interruptions while applying Hydro on enemies.


3) Wanderer National Team

Most characters work well with the National Team because its core is very strong. For those who don't know, it refers to a party with the following 4-star characters:

  • Xiangling: Sub-DPS
  • Xingqiu: Hydro Enabler
  • Bennett: Healer/ATK Buffer

Still, some characters work better with the National Team than others in Genshin Impact. These include Raiden Shogun, Kaedehara Kazuha, Sucrose, and others.

Luckily, Wanderer is one of these characters as well. If a player struggles to build a team around him, they may choose to play him in the National Team as it is always strong and credible.


4) Wanderer Taser Team

The Taser team for Wanderer allows players to employ him in a quick swap playstyle. He does not perform as the main DPS in this composition, rather he is the driver for his party members. The ideal Taser team in this scenario will include:

  • Xingiqu/Yelan: Hydro enabler
  • Fischl: Electro enabler
  • Beidou: Shielder and AoE Electro enabler

This team provides players the flexibility to use different artifact sets on Wanderer in Genshin Impact. Instead of a damage build, he can be equipped with the Viridescent Venerer artifact set to shred elemental resistance, so the party members can deal more damage.


5) Mono Anemo Team

Wanderer is the only Anemo character in Genshin Impact that benefits from the mono Anemo team. The ideal roster built around him in such a case will include:

  • Faruzan: Anemo Buffs/Debuffs
  • Venti: Crowd Control
  • Bennett: Healer/ ATK Buffer

Players who do not have Venti can use other Anemo crowd controllers such as Kazuha and Sucrose.
