With the growing expectations of a new Geo meta in Genshin Impact, players may be wondering which Geo characters are the best to invest in. The new canine warrior Gorou is coming with abilities that allow the strength of the team to scale depending on how many Geo members are in the party. The increasing amount of Geo characters being added to the game means players may want to try building more of their Geo units.
Geo characters are often great choices for providing defense and attack to a team, with consistent support and Sub-DPS capabilities. As of now, there are currently five Geo units in Genshin Impact. This includes Noelle, Ningguang, Albedo, Zhongli, and the Geo Traveller. However, the second half of the 2.3 update will see the release of the new Geo 5-Star Claymore user Arataki Itto, and the 4-Star Geo bow user Gorou. In addition, a new 4-Star Geo polearm user named Yunjin is rumored to be released in the 2.4 update.
Zhongli is one of the best Geo characters in Genshin Impact, and possibly one of the strongest Support and Sup-DPS units in general. Zhongli’s Elemental Skill creates a construct that deals a burst of AoE Geo DMG, and creates a shield for the player that scales off of his Max HP. This construct also drains Geo from enemies, destroying enemy shields with ease. His Elemental Burst summons a meteor that crashes onto the battlefield, dealing enormous Geo DMG and freezing all enemies for a period of time.
Which Geo Characters Players Should Invest Into in Genshin Impact
Zhongli has both massive damage capabilities and the strongest shield in Genshin Impact, meaning players who have Zhongli will often be able to avoid taking damage in fights altogether. It’s no question that any player who has Zhongli should fully invest in him. However, for players who don’t have Zhongli, Noelle can serve as a free-to-play substitution.
Noelle is the other Geo support unit whose Elemental Skill grants the party with a Geo shield. When Noelle has her shield up, dealing damage with her heals the entire party, and this healing scales off of her Defense. Her Elemental Burst converts all her damage into Geo DMG, and massively extends the reach of her sword to deal easy damage and heal up the party fast.
For Genshin Impact players looking for a Geo Main DPS, they may want to pull for Arataki Itto. Itto gains strength stacks when he hits his 2nd and 4th auto-attack, as well as when he uses his Elemental Skill (which summons a bull that deals Geo DMG on the field, and taunts). These stacks increase Itto’s DMG significantly and increase his resistance to interruption. His Elemental Burst converts all his damage into Geo DMG, and increases his ATK and ATK speed. Itto is a Geo unit meant to remain on the field, making him one of the few Geo Main DPS in the game as of now. For players looking for a free-to-play Geo Main DPS, Ningguang’s kit also focuses on her being on the field to deal Geo DMG and Crystallize reactions.
As a 5-Star unit in Genshin Impact, Albedo is obviously a fantastic choice to invest in if players have him. He functions as a Sub-DPS unit that helps the team by dealing Geo DMG, and enabling Geo reactions. However, for players looking to build a team of Geo users, they’ll have to make sure they’re pulling for Gorou. This upcoming 4-Star support uses his Elemental Skill to grant the team with various strong buffs depending on how many Geo users are in the party, meaning he will likely be an indispensable support for players who want to use strong Geo characters together like Itto and Zhongli.
