Their skills and talents are far beyond others. Players can achieve a certain 'spam' of their abilities when they have the right items and artifact sets. Reaching Constellation level 6 with both can dismantle enemies in a few hits.

They are followed by two 5-star Pyro-types, Diluc and Hu Tao. Diluc has established himself as one of the most powerful characters in Genshin Impact for an already long time. His Pyro burst damage attacks can deal massive damage to enemies.

Meanwhile, Hu Tao has yet to prove herself. But she is already being seen as a top contender with her current performance as a playable character a few days after her release.

Zhongli, who is not on top of the tier list, is now considered the strongest defensive character. His skills can be utilized to create pillars and shields that are durable enough to withstand strong attacks. But he is also capable of dealing enormous damage thanks to his elemental burst "Planet Befall."

The mid and lower tiers are all 5 or 4-star characters from various game updates. Those at the bottom are mostly free characters who can be obtained in the game's early parts. It includes the Anemo and Geo-type Travelers, as well as the Pyro-type, Amber.
