Dexterous use of Ice Lotus can effectively redirect enemy fire creating a safe environment for Ganyu to dish out damage.

After unlocking the Talent “Harmony Between Heaven and Earth”, with Ganyu in your party all active party members within Celestial Shower’s AoE gain a Cryo damage bonus.

Ganyu Passive Talents

Unlock 2 more passive talents for Ganyu on her first and fourth ascension phase.

Undivided Heart
After firing a Frostflake Arrow, the CRIT Rate of subsequent Frostflake Arrows and their resulting bloom effects is increased by 20% for 5s.
Harmony between Heaven and Earth
Celestial Shower grants a 20% Cryo DMG Bonus to active members in the AoE.
Preserved for the Hunt
Refunds 15% of the ores used when crafting Bow-type weapons.

A constant barrage of Frostflake Arrows is what makes her strengths truly shine heading her to victory. Ganyu can use her Elemental Skill to get out of harm’s way and taunt her opponents allowing her to then fire Frostflake Arrows unbothered dealing damage to groups of enemies from afar. When facing more formidable foes together with her allies, Ganyu’s ability to taunt and infuse enemies with Cryo is an effective form of support for the whole party that allows for defeating enemies in one fell swoop.

Ganyu Constellations

What should I focus on for her build? Like, should I focus on crit rate, crit damage, recharge, etc? I want to main her, since I’m guaranteed on her re run

if you’re going with 4set blizzard + cryo resonance, crit rate wouldn’t be a problem and you should just focus on her cdmg.
my team comp for ganyu is, ganyu (main dps), kokomi (hydro applicator + healer (you can use Mona for applicator and for now i dont think there’s a better hydro applicator for Ganyu than this 2), Zhongli (Shield to avoid interuption during her charged attack or just use Diona for Heal, Shield, and Cryo Resonance), and the last slot is Rosaria to activate resonance and boost my crit rate (you can swap her with bennet if you’re using Diona instead of Zhongli).
Just from my Teamcomp, my Ganyu already gain 15% Crate + 40% Crate from Blizzard (20% affected by Cryo + 20% Froxen Enemies), + 7%-ish from Rosaria, and 20% from her first ascension skill. In total my Ganyu Critrate boosted from 30% to almost 100%.
She really is a broken character LOL

What weapons would you recommend?

I would recommend Amo’s bow or skyward harp, for 4 stars I would recommend blackcliff, the stringless or favonius warbow. 😀

For 5 stars u can also use polar star

There is also prototype Crescent which is REALLY good for her

i think her BIS for 4star is Prototype (Mondstadt Craftable Bow, you have to aim it perfectly), Hamayumi (Inazuma Craftable Bow, you cant use your burst to maximize the full potential).

amos’ bow is literally her designated weapon so if you have it slap it on her immediately. if you don’t though (which is fine) prototype crescent is her second best bow in the game (first being amos’ bow) so prototype crescent would be the way to go. if you have other 5 star bows though, polar star would be good, then skyward harp, mostly just focus on ones that boost atk with dmg boosters as their substat effects (hence why amos’ bow is her best and prototype crescent is her best 4 star).

U guys should ganyu use blizzard or wanderer:(

blizzard if less crit rate and wanderer if u have decent crit ratio

More like blizzard for freeze ganyu and wanderer’s for melt

wanderer is the better option

does anybody know how to get “Shadow of the Warrior” 🙁

I think you get it from fighting level 70+ childe. He might not drop it so you can also use dream solvent to convert other stuff you get from him into that

Its been two months i think you already know but note that you should farm materials if you are AR 40 or higher (ar 40 is the average, domains farming btw [kinda same as bosses]) so you get better drops.
