Ganyu Overview

This Page provides the Best Ganyu Build information.

Ganyu is the secretary at Yuehai Pavilion. The blood of the qilin, an illuminated beast, flows within her veins.

Ganyu is the Second powerful Cryo DPS in Genshin Impact at the moment. Ganyu Main DPS and Sup DPS Build are mostly used by travelers. Her Elemental Burst can keep triggering element reaction while dishing out strong damage.

Ganyu has different ways to help the party. Not only can dish out DPS within a short period of time by using the Elemental Burst, but her Elemental Skill also helps trigger element reaction easily. ATK% is the most important stats for Ganyu, so the Main DPS Build and Sub DPS Build will also help travelers to stack the ATK% for Ganyu.

In Genshin Impact, Ganyu is a 5 Stars rarity Cryo character currently in SS tier.
