As confirmed by Mihoyo in their Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview, Genshin Impact\’s fourth explorable nation will be Sumeru. With the completion of Inazuma\’s primary storyline already completed, Sumeru may be just around the corner.
However, Genshin Impact continues to introduce fans to exciting new playable characters from Inazuma. Before leaving Inazuma behind, it is important for fans to figure out which playable Inazuma characters will be the best companions for continuing on their journey.
10 Kujou Sara
While every playable character in Genshin Impact can be useful in their own ways, bow users tend to be less popular than other characters. Unfortunately for Kujou Sara, she is no exception. Kujou Sara certainly isn\’t the worst bow user in Genshin Impact, but her stats are simply underwhelming compared to other playable characters from Inazuma. Unless a player is specifically searching for an Electro bow user, there is no real reason to invest in Kujou Sara.
While all of Genshin Impact\’s playable Inazuma characters are relatively new in comparison to characters from Mondstadt or Liyue, Gorou is one of the two newest playable characters to be introduced to the game as of December 14, 2021. Gorou is difficult to compare to other characters, as his use is very specifically tailored to full Geo teams. Players with an overwhelming fondness for their Geo characters may find that Gorou is precisely the Support they needed to build their dream Geo team. However, Gorou is easily outclassed by other Support characters when paired with teammates that use any other element.
While Thoma is an important story character in Genshin Impact\’s second chapter, he was only released as a playable character in November 2021. Many players were excited to see what this 4-star Pyro polearm user would have in store. However, Thoma is one of three different Pyro polearm users, including a 5-star character (Hu Tau) and one of the most popular Pyro characters in the game (Xiangling).
There is nothing necessarily wrong with Thoma, but the only reason he might be more useful than characters like Hu Tau or Xiangling is if players are lacking shield characters.
