Cryo Bow

Ganyu is a renowned DPS in Genshin Impact. Her ease of use is paired with simplicity, which makes her highly useful on the battlefield. With Ganyu, players gain a priceless unit that works perfectly in a Morgana team comp. Those who likes to play against the meta can even utilize her as a Burst DPS, where she only takes the field to cast her Celestial Shower. The Qilin's Burst has great AoE and reliable Cryo application. It also has a 100% uptime, which means it can be cast endlessly.

Overall Rating


Difficulty: ★☆☆☆☆ (Very easy)

Gameplay Difficulty

Ganyu is among the easiest Genshin Impact characters to use. Players simply have to charge her Aimed Shot and wait until it’s ready to shoot the Frostflake Arrow. As long as players train themselves to know exactly when to shoot the Frostflake Arrow, then Ganyu can be utilized effectively.

Building Difficulty

The Secretary of the Liyue Qixing has a lot of weapon and artifact options. F2P players can do just fine with free options like Hamayumi, Blackcliff Warbow, and Prototype Crescent, which makes Ganyu easy to build.

Flexibility: ★★★★★ (Excellent)

Team Composition Flexibility

Ganyu is typically used in a Morgana team comp that abuses the Frozen reaction. For this team, there are plenty of Hydro, Cryo, and Anemo options that can be paired with Ganyu. The Qilin is also often paired in a Melt comp. Considering the number of characters and teams that Ganyu can fit in, she ranks high in terms of flexibility.

Role Flexibility

Ganyu is primarily used as a main DPS, but players can also use her as an off-field DPS, support, battery, and Cryo enabler.

Weekly Boss: ★★★★★ (Excellent)

Ganyu has a long range and can easily hit weekly bosses, even if they’re mobile. The only weekly boss Ganyu can’t fight is Andrius, as he’s immune to Cryo.

World Boss: ★★★★☆ (Great)

The only reason why Ganyu loses a star for world boss is that she can’t utilize Elemental reactions against some of them. This means players can only rely on her raw DMG, and artifacts like Blizzard Strayer become ineffective.

Spiral Abyss: ★★★★★ (Excellent)

Ganyu may be released a few months after Genshin Impact’s initial release, but she’s still relevant up until now. Her strong Charged Attack and ease of use still work great in the Spiral Abyss, and she doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
