With twenty-three characters currently unlockable and obtainable in Genshin Impact, there are tons of ways to create a great party. However, some characters are simply better than others, which is why so many people have begun making tier lists to rank them all. It can be overwhelming, and a lot to sort through, but understanding character rankings in Genshin Impact is actually simpler than it initially seems.

The first thing to understand is that tier lists are completely subjective. Character preferences can totally differ between players. However, based on a lot of the lists floating around, there are clearly some characters in Genshin Impact that just rank higher than others. The reasons for this are typically based on a character\’s base stats, how well they improve over time, and how well they can be used for exploration and in boss fights.
