Obtained early in Genshin Impact\’s story, Kaeya\’s ice-based attacks are great for causing damage-over-time and freezing foes. This also means Kaeya can freeze water when it\’s in front of him by using his Cryo powers. This ability is very useful, making it exponentially easier to cross large bodies of water since players don\’t have to worry about running out of stamina and drowning.
When looking at Artifact sets for Kaeya, the Noblesse Oblige Artifacts would be ideal. This will raise Kaeya\’s Elemental Burst damage by 20%. If four Artifacts in this set are equipped, it will also raise the ATK of the other Genshin Impact party members by 20% for 12 seconds. This way, both Kaeya and the other party members all benefit from his Artifacts. However, a more common Artifact set is the Exile set. This boosts Kaeya\’s Cryo DMG and ATK, and it can increase his Energy Recharge by 20%. With either of these Artifact sets, Kaeya can maximize his Cryo damage while also boosting his normal attacks.
Because Kaeya is a Cryo user and swordfighter like Qiqi in Genshin Impact, they can use similar weapons, such as the 5-star Skyward Blade. However, the 4-star Alley Flash can be ideal for Kaeya since it raises his ATK by 28%. Cool Steel is a 3-star weapon, making it incredibly common. It\’s also perfect for Kaeya in Genshin Impact, because Cool Steel amps up damage to enemies weakened by Cryo.
While characters acquired through the Wish system may ultimately outshine Kaeya, he\’s still one of the best free characters in Genshin Impact. With the right character build, he can become very powerful and is definitely an asset to any team. For players wanting to get the most out of Kaeya in Genshin Impact, he just needs Artifacts and weapons that raise ATK stats while boosting his Cryo abilities.
