Genshin Impact is an MMORPG developed by a Chinese developer named HoYoverse with anime-style artwork. As good as it may sound, the game is heavily dominated by the gacha system which means, it will induce players to spend in-game currency to receive a random in-game item. These in-game currencies can be gained through gameplay, by using real-world funds to purchase in-game items. In this article, we will discuss the top 5 F2P-friendly characters in Genshin Impact.
- 1. Bennett
- 2. Albedo
- 3. Sangonomiya Kokomi
- 4. Zhongli

Top F2P-friendly characters in Genshin Impact
Free-to-play friendly means that players don’t have to rely on constellations to do big damage and provide support. Craftable weapons work well on these characters and players don’t need to rely on gacha or Battle Pass to get good weapons with good damage. Obviously, low spenders and F2P players do not get every character in the game.
Bennett is arguably one of the most F2P-friendly characters in the game. His role as the buffer, healer and sub-DPS comes at a price of one 4-star. Bennett is good without constellations, but C1 is what travelers may want the most. Bennett may work with many different artifact sets, but his best in the slot is Noblesse Oblige. Players must stack a high base attack sword on him with HP-based artifacts and your team is good to go.
Albedo is yet another great option for F2P players. This Alchemist from the Knight of Favonious is a great choice for sub-DPS/support for Geo-based teams. As Albedo scales with DEF, which of course, players get very often making artifact farming relatively easy for him, Albedo’s best slot is the husk of Opulent Dreams. As for weapons, the free 4-star event sword Cinnabar Spindle is a great choice for him. Else, Harbinger of Dawn is fine, as well.
3. Sangonomiya Kokomi
This divine priestess from Watatsumi Island is another next best option for the F2P community. Players don’t need to farm for Crit Rate/Crit Dmg for this one, thanks to her ascension passive, because of that players can entirely focus on HP. The Kokomi build is based on the fact, that her healing scales of with her max HP, her best in slot option is the ocean calm hued. As for weapons, Prototype Amber and Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers, both being F2P friendly options, work well with Kokomi.
The Geo Archon is known for his unbreakable shield, based on the HP, which is yet another good stat to start with, as players see this stat on artifacts in abundance. Zhongli‘s best in the slot is the tenacity of the millilith, players can go for Black Tassel, which is a 3-star weapon with HP % substat for making the shield stronger, Zhongli may also be used as a sub-DPS, as his meteor deals quite a lot of damage while petrifying the enemies as well. Making the Geo-Archon is a solid choice for F2P players.
5. Raiden Shogun
Raiden Shogun or the Electro Archon is the best battery currently in the game right now. She can fulfill the energy demands of many team comps, hence making her versatile. Raiden Shogun scales with Energy Recharge (ER) and her best in the slot is the emblem of servered fate artifact set. This domain is one of the best artifacts domains to farm, as many other characters in the game work well with the emblem and Shimenawa Artifacts set. For the weapons, The Catch is, by far, the best F2P option for Raiden Shogun.
