As of Patch 1.5, the latest added character in the tier list is Yanfei.
So, you have a bunch of Genshin Impact characters but aren’t sure how powerful they are. Luckily, we’ve put together a tier list that can help you gauge how your characters stack up to others in the roster. Keep in mind, not all tier lists are the same since it’s largely based on the opinion of whoever ranked the characters. Nevertheless, it’s an important part of the player experience, especially with Gacha games like Genshin Impact where you don’t know which character you’re going to get per roll.
Before we begin, let’s preface with how these characters are ranked. As stated above, a tier list is largely based on the opinion of the person who made it. In addition to our impressions of the characters and our experience playing with them, we’ve also considered their placements on existing tier lists. We also ranked them at C0.
With all of that out of the way, it’s time to rank these Genshin Impact characters!
Genshin Impact Main DPS Character Tier List
The Main DPS character in Genshin Impact typically deals lots of damage and is the character that will primarily carry your team in the game. For these reasons, they are on the field most of the time.
- Tier S: Ganyu, Diluc, Klee, Hu Tao, Xiao
- Tier A: Fischl, Childe, Jean, Keqing, Yanfei
- Tier B: Beidou, Ningguang, Rosaria, Razor
- Tier C: Chongyun, Xinyan
Genshin Impact Sub DPS Character Tier List
Sub DPS characters fall somewhere between a Support and Main DPS character in Genshin Impact. They can deal a lot of damage, but they are sometimes replaced by another support character depending on the team composition. They should synergize well with your Main DPS character.
- Tier S: Albedo, Fischl, Mona, Zhongli, Venti
- Tier A: Beidou, Ganyu, Jean, Kaeya, Rosaria
- Tier B: Chongyun, Lisa, Xiangling, Xingqiu
- Tier C: Amber, Noelle, Traveler (Anemo, Geo)
Genshin Impact Support Character Tier List
Support characters are the backbone of your team composition in Geshin Impact. They’re the ones who are tasked with keeping your team alive or applying constant elemental reactions to the enemy. They provide valuable support for the Main DPS and the whole party doesn’t have a hard time.
- Tier S: Albedo, Jean, Mona, Qiqi, Venti, Zhongli
- Tier A: Diona, Fischl, Kaeya, Lisa, Sucrose, Bennett, Xingqiu
- Tier B: Barbara, Beidou, Rosaria, Xiangling
- Tier C: Noelle, Traveler (Anemo, Geo)
We hope this tier list has given you an idea of where your characters stand within the roster. Keep in mind, however, that characters on the lower tiers aren’t useless. What they need is the right team and the right role, and they can perform well!
