Ganyu Build – Best Weapon

Here’s a short argument of the best Ganyu weapon in her build.

  1. Aqua Simulacra: Provide large Crit DMG, which is great since players can easily fulfill Crit Rate requirements.
  2. Amos’ Bow: The most common weapon for Ganyu. It provides ATK and a boost to Normal and Charged Attack DMG.
  3. Thundering Pulse: Also grant Crit DMG and some additional ATK; passive is almost useless.
  4. Polar Star: Has a better passive than Thundering Pulse, but Ganyu doesn’t need too much Crit Rate in Freeze team.
  5. Skyward Harp: Gives both Crit Rate and Crit DMG, along with a large base ATK.
  6. Prototype Crescent: The best F2P option for Ganyu if the enemy has a weak point.
  7. Blackcliff Warbow: A great Ganyu weapon, but its performance depends on whether the passive is activated or not.
  8. Hamayumi: Another forgeable bow suitable for Ganyu; grants ATK and buff Normal and Charged Attack DMG.
  9. Hunter’s Path: Has a large Crit Rate and its passive enhances Charged Attack DMG based on Elemental Mastery, making it great for Melt Ganyu.
  10. Elegy for the End: Great option for sub-DPS Ganyu to buff the entire team and ensure the availability of her Elemental Burst.
  11.  Alley Hunter: Great sub-DPS weapon that enhances DMG when the wielder is off-field.
  12. The Stringless: Sub-stat is niche, but passive is great for a sub-DPS.

Ganyu Build – Best Artifact

Unlike her weapon that’s suitable for many roles, the artifacts for Ganyu best build in Genshin Impact are more restricted

Freeze DPS

  1. 4-Blizzard Strayer: This set grants a large Critical Rate, which means people only need to focus on Crit DMG. Only viable in a permafreeze team like the Morgana.

Melt DPS

  1. 4-Wanderer’s Troupe: Boosts Charged Attack DMG and Elemental Mastery.
  2. 4-Shimenawa’s Reminiscence: Grant a large Charged Attack DMG in exchange for Energy, but this isn’t much of an issue since Melt Ganyu shouldn’t use her Elemental Burst.
  3. 2-Blizzard Strayer + 2-EM +80: A mix-set to enhance Melt DMG.
  4. 2-Blizzard Strayer + 2-ATK +18%: A mix-set for more ATK.


  1. 4-Blizzard Strayer: Great if Ganyu is a sub-DPS in a Freeze team.
  2. 2-Blizzard Strayer + 2-Noblesse Oblige: Enhances Cryo DMG and Burst DMG; a great pair in general.
  3. 4-Emblem of Severed Fate: Specifically for Burst DMG: Performance depends on Energy Recharge value.

Ganyu Talent Priority In Genshin Impact

Ganyu talent priority in Genshin Impact is Normal Attack > Elemental Burst > Elemental Skill. But if she’s playing as a sub-DPS, then Normal Attack can be ignored.

Ganyu Talent Level Recommendation

  • Normal Attack: 10
  • Elemental Skill: 6 to 10
  • Elemental Burst: 8 to 10
