Who are the best 'Genshin Impact' characters?

There are a handful of characters who stand out as assets, who can easily be built out to be more powerful, and who have skill sets that tend to be more helpful to have in battle. In no particular order, these characters are Venti, Diluc, Eula, Qiqi, Ganyu, and Hu Tao.

Venti is a Bow and Anemo character and has some of the best elemental skills in the game. His ability to absorb Pyro, Electro, Hydro, and Cryo elements (and then use it to deal 50 percent more damage) makes him a seriously powerful option.

Diluc has a Claymore, the highest base attack power of all characters, and a high critical rate. Add this to his Pyro powers and he's a seriously powerful addition to your team.

With Eula, players can build their stacks of Grimheart to deal immense damage to an opponent, thanks to her Lightfall Sword and huge AoE burst damage. Really, if you're looking to deal damage, she's worth it to have on your team.

Qiqi's high defense is what makes her a very valuable asset. She can deal continuous Cryo damage while healing your active character, making her double the asset to have.

Ganyu's bow can be equipped with different kinds of Cryo arrows, making the damage she deals rival Diluc. Add her elemental abilities and she's a strong asset.

Lastly, Hu Tao is a Polearm and Pyro character who, if built right, can deal some immense damage to single opponents, making her a great option.

Who are the worst 'Genshin Impact' characters?

Certain characters in Genshin Impact are clearly easier to build and make powerful assets to your team, but almost any character can be used to make a successful impact in battle.

The keyword is almost any character.

Unfortunately, if Amber is your favorite character to use in battle, we're here to tell you she's unarguably the worst to have on your team. It's not that her skill set and builds are bad, but other characters can easily do so much better.

Amber is just an introductory character to get you through the beginning of the game. Once you've unlocked some of the more advanced characters, you should leave her behind.

Other than her, though, there really aren't any other characters who are the "worst." If you don't see some of your favorites listed among the "best," that doesn't mean that with the right build and training, they won't be great assets to your own team.
