Genshin Impact 2.8: Should You Pull For Kazuha, Klee, Or Yoimiya

Genshin Impact 2.8 Kazuha Klee Yoimiya Official Art

Genshin Impact Version 2.8 features rerun banners for three of Genshin Impact\’s 5-star characters, with a double banner for Kazuha and Klee in the first half, and a rerun of Yoimiya\’s banner in the second half. For Anemo-wielding Kazuha and Pyro DPS Yoimiya, the 2.8 update features their first reruns since they were added to Genshin Impact. This will be the second rerun for Pyro character Klee, who received her first rerun in June 2021. Though Kazuha, Klee, and Yoimiya each have their unique strengths and weaknesses, weighing up these pros and cons will help Genshin Impact players decide which 5-star character they should pull for.

Most of Genshin Impact\’s 5-star playable characters can only be obtained through the game\’s gacha system, known as Wishes. Genshin Impact players can use Intertwined Fate or Primogems to wish on limited-time Character Event Wishes, in the hopes of procuring the promoted character who receives a drop-rate boost. Like many gacha games, Genshin Impact players can purchase a paid currency known as Genesis Crystals, which can be converted to Primogems at a 1:1 exchange rate, then used to make Wishes.

First up, Kaedehara Kazuha is a 5-star sword-wielding Anemo user in Genshin Impact. Kazuha is regarded as one of Genshin Impact\’s most powerful Sub-DPS and Support characters, as well as one of Genshin Impact\’s best Anemo characters without Constellations. However, at C2, Kazuha\’s elemental mastery is increased by 200 as is the elemental mastery of his on-field teammates. Kazuha excels at grouping enemies for crowd-control and by triggering Swirl elemental reactions. As far as weaknesses go Kazuha has few, though he\’s not an ideal Main DPS, nor does he work especially well with Geo, as there\’s no elemental reaction between Anemo and Geo currently.

Which Genshin Impact 2.8 5-Star Character Banner Is Actually Best?

Genshin Impact 2.8 Should Players Pull For Kazuha Klee Or Yoimiya

Alongside Kazuha, 5-star Pyro catalyst user Klee gets a rerun. Klee is the only 5-star character with this weapon and element combination. Best in the Main DPS role, Genshin Impact\’s Klee delivers high Pyro DMG using explosions that continue to trigger elemental reactions. Klee\’s explosions come in handy for exploration, especially mining ore, and her Passive Talent \”All of My Treasures!\” helps players locate Mondstadt Local Specialities. As for weaknesses, Klee\’s attacks have a short range and long animations that leave Klee vulnerable to enemy attacks. As Klee\’s banner is followed by Yoimiya\’s, another 5-star Pyro Main DPS, players may opt to save their Wishes for her instead.

In the second half of the 2.8 update, 5-star Pyro bow user Naganohara Yoimiya gets her first-ever rerun. Excelling in the Main DPS role, Genshin Impact\’s Yoimiya can apply Pyro from afar, plus her Elemental Skill converts her arrows\’ DMG to Pyro DMG. During her Elemental Burst, Yoimiya leaps into the air and fires rockets at opponents, dealing AoE Pyro DMG. When Yoimiya fires her rockets, an opponent will become marked, and subsequent attacks on the marked opponent by Yoimiya\’s teammates will trigger another Pyro DMG explosion. The downside to this is that Yoimiya has to be taken off-field after using her Elemental Burst. Additionally, as many of Yoimiya\’s abilities single out opponents one by one, she\’s not effective against mobs of enemies.

Genshin Impact players looking for a Main DPS character should pull for Klee or Yoimiya over Kazuha, as the Anemo character is better suited to Sub-DPS and Support. When deciding which Genshin Impact character to wish for, players should take into account the makeup of their current team and which characters they already own. For example, Kazuha doesn\’t work well in alongside a Geo-focused team, due to the lack of elemental reactions between Geo and Anemo. However, if a team requires a Support character in a party that has good synergy with Anemo, Kazuha would be an ideal choice.
