Kaeya Overview

This Page provides the Best Kaeya Build information.

Kaeya is a thinker in the Knights of Favonius with a somewhat exotic appearance.

Kaeya is a Cryo DPS in Genshin Impact. Kaeya Support Build and Sup DPS Build are mostly used by travelers. His Elemental Burst can help the party to dish out damage while he is off field.

Kaeya has different ways to help the party. Not only can dish out DPS while he is off field by using the Elemental Burst, but his Passive Skill also helps decrease sprinting Stamina consumption of your characters in the party by 20%. Energy recharge is the most important stats for Kaeya, so the Support Build and Sub DPS Build will also help travelers to stack the energy recharge for Kaeya.

In Genshin Impact, Kaeya is a 4 Stars rarity Cryo character currently in B tier.
