Xinyan has flown under the radar for many players as she hasn't appeared in the story of Genshin Impact, nor does she appear to deal much damage, but for any players who run Physical DMG-focused teams, Xinyan is invaluable.

Xinyan is a 4-star Claymore character who uses Pyro. She brings powerful buffs and even Physical resistance shreds to a team, along with being one of the game's only sources of Pyro element shields. Players should definitely not overlook Xinyan if they need a great support for their Physical team.

#4 - Beidou

Players should definitely give Beidou some recognition, especially as they will be able to get a free copy of the character during an upcoming event. Beidou is a 4-star Claymore user who uses the Electro element.

This character provides huge Electro AOE damage to a team, along with a powerful Counter type Elemental Skill that players can use to negate damage. This is the only skill in the game that functions as a counter, so players who are fans of that type of ability should give Beidou a try.


#3 - Ningguang

Ningguang is one of Genshin Impact's most underrated DPS units, and she is capable of dealing insane amounts of Geo Damage to enemies. She is a Catalyst using Geo 4-star character.

She also provides buffs to Geo damage and can help support a team with her Energy generating Jade Screens. Players should definitely give Ningguang a try if they want an unconventional Catalyst wielding DPS.


#2 - Fischl

Fischl is a character that most players were able to receive for free during the Unreconciled Stars event, and players who overlooked her at the time should definitely give her a try now.

Fischl is a 4-star Electro Bow user, and she provides some of the most consistent Electro damage in the game. She also deals insane damage after the Electro buffs in 1.6. Players who aren't utilizing Fischl in their teams are missing out on one of the best sources for Electro reactions in Genshin Impact.

Diona is a 4-star Cryo Bow user that almost every Genshin Impact player should have a copy of. She is an incredibly useful character as she provides Cryo shields and healing and can consistently keep enemies locked down with her icy abilities.

She provides great supportive capabilities and is especially useful in the current Abyss as Cryo is powerful against both the Abyss Herald and Abyss Lector and can help players shred these tough enemies much quicker.


These Genshin Impact characters are definitely worth building, and players can get some great use out of each of them.
