Ganyu DPS or Support ?
Ganyu DPS or Support ? – Ganyu will become a new character following Albedo in the 1.2 Genshin Impact update series. The character we have met in Tevyat is a very agile arrow user. Ganyu will also be an additional Cryo character in Genshin Impact which is a pity to miss. So, we wants to give a review of Ganyu’s abilities and whether he deserves to enter high tier or unfortunately he doesn’t shine. Each consideration will be given a rating and let’s see if Ganyu is a five-star character that you must collect or not. Listen carefully to the following reviews.
- Excellence as a DPS
Like Diluc, Ganyu has a very high average ATK. At level 90, Ganyu gets a base ATK of 335, which is very high for arrow users. Unfortunately, his Elemental Skill and Burst abilities couldn’t support him to become pure DPS. The reason is, the cooldown ability is quite high and makes it difficult to spam. On the other hand, the hits from Ganyu have a small percentage of attack compared to Fischl or Tartaglia. This makes it less shining if used as the main DPS. At level 14, Ganyu can only collect 160% ATK from each hit, compared to Fischl and Tartaglia which can reach 180%.
- Excellence as a support
Even though he can’t become a DPS, Ganyu will be a very high addition to the Sub-DPS for your team. His Celestial Shower has a very high average damage, even his attack range in area types is very deadly. This can make him really shine in the Spiral Abyss. On the other hand, Ganyu’s Elemental Skill, Trail of the Qilin could make him attract the enemy’s attention. In this way, Ganyu will be a very useful support to distract the enemy.
Ganyu’s passive talent is only useful for giving additional Ore if the player makes arrows. This does not make it special and feels obligatory to collect. It’s different from Talent abilities like Xingqiu or Sucrose which are very useful in Crafting. Ganyu DPS or Support ?
On the other hand, Ganyu’s elemental abilities could be very useful for farming around Tevyat. He can eradicate many weak enemies with his Elemental Skills and Burst.
Cryo elements are very useful and can synergize easily. In fact, Cryo can provide DMG effect from Melt, reduce RES from Superconduct or give Freeze effect and therefore this element is very useful. Seeing how Ganyu’s Skill works makes it very easy to synergize with team members.
If you don’t have arrow users, then Ganyu can be a very useful character. Whether it’s to solve a puzzle or immediately finish off the enemy with his Cryo element synergy. So what will you build, Ganyu DPS or Support ?
