1) Uplifted Wanderer Oblivion 

The best AoE damage team.

Firstly, Wanderer is probably one of the best DPSes I have encountered while playing Genshin (courtesy of my C6 Wanderer). The characters in his team include Faruzan, Yunjin, and Zhognli. 

  • Why I Chose This Team: Wanderer’s AoE damage is crucial for boss fights, and he is one of the strongest characters in-game.

The roles of each of the characters, as well as their placement in the Genshin Impact Teams, are listed as follows:

  • Wanderer: Main-DPS and Anemo applicator 
  • Faruzan: Support and Ultimate buffer 
  • Zhongli: Shielder 
  • Yunjin: Normal attack buffer 

The pros and cons of this team are listed below: 

Pros  Cons 
Wanderer’s AoE damage is insanely good. DPS is centered on Anemo characters. 
Zhongli’s shielding abilities are broken. N/A

Firstly, Wanderer is a five-star Anemo character who can go airborne whenever his Elemental Skill is used, which is helpful for exploration. 

He plays a role as a main DPS in these Anemo Teams in Genshin, and his Ultimate Burst damage is insane as he steps on enemies. 

The artifacts he uses are the 4 piece Desert Pavilion Chronicle with the Tulaytullah’s Remembrance: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Anemo Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 

Faruzan 

As far as Faruzan is considered, she is a four-star Anemo support who can decrease the Anemo resistance of the enemies. 

She is the best support and can boost the critical damage for Wanderer when she is in the Genshin Anemo Teams. 

She can use the 4 pieces of Tenacity of the Millelith with the Favonius Warbrow: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Anemo Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 

Zhongli 

Regarding Zhongli in the Anemo Teams, he is a five-star Geo character who is one of the best characters I’ve tried. 

He supports by providing the most broken shield to all teammates and shredding the Geo resistance of enemies in front. 

He can use the 4 piece Tenacity as well with the Black Tassel: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: HP%
  • Goblet: HP% 
  • Circlet: HP% 

Yunjin

Lastly, Yunjin binds the entire team together by being a four-star Geo character who can boost any character’s overall attack speed. 

She uses her Ultimate/Burst, which can directly affect Wanderer’s attack speed and buff it up. 

The Husk of Opulent Dreams is one of the best artifact sets for her, as listed below: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: DEF%
  • Goblet: DEF%
  • Circlet: DEF% 

2) Xiao Plunge Composition 

The best plunge team comp.

Moving on, the next Anemo team features Xiao as an amazing main DPS, and the characters are Faruzan, Bennett, and Zhongli. The team works insanely well. 

  • Why I Chose This Team: Xiao and Faruzan work well together, and Xiao’s Elemental Burst can deal high Anemo damage to enemies. 

The roles of these characters are listed as follows: 

  • Xiao: Main DPS and Anemo Damage Dealer
  • Faruzan: Support + Anemo damage buffer 
  • Bennett: Healer + Attack buffer 
  • Zhongli: Shielder 

The pros and cons for the team are listed as follows:

Pros  Cons 
Xiao’s plunge damage is impressive. Single-target damage isn’t as high as AoE. 
Faruzan can boost damage using her Elemental Burst. N/A

Xiao

Moving on, Xiao is the main Anemo component for the Genshin Teams, and he is a five-star Anemo character with insanely high Burst and Skill damage. He acts as the main DPS, and using his Elemental Skill, he is able to slash enemies in front, as well as use his Elemental Burst to plunge into them. 

He can use the 4 piece Vermillion Hereafter with the Jade Spear as his weapon of choice:

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Anemo Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 

Faruzan

Next up, Faruzan is a four-star Anemo support specifically introduced to buff Anemo damage and crit damage for Anemo’s main DPS characters. She is able to provide Anemo damage bonus to Xiao, increasing his overall damage output. 

She can use the 4 piece Tenacity of the Millelith with the Favonius Warbrow as her best in-slot weapon: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Anemo Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 

Bennett

When it comes to Bennett, he is a four-star Pyro character (I hate him) who is an excellent Healer and damage buffer. 

Using his Elemental Burst, he can heal Xiao and increase his base damage, making Xiao even more viable as a main DPS. 

The best artifacts for him are the four-piece Noblesse Oblige with the Favonius Sword: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: HP%
  • Goblet: HP% 
  • Circlet: HP% 

Zhongli

Last but not least, Zhongli is a five-star Geo character in Genshin Impact who can be the optimal Shielder for the teammates. 

He can use the 4 piece Tenacity set alongside the Black Tassel, which is his best weapon:

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: HP%
  • Goblet: HP% 
  • Circlet: HP% 

3) Childe/Kazuha Swirl Comp 

The most broken Swirl team comp.

Next up, another broken team composition you might not want to miss out on is Childe, who can be paired insanely well with characters such as Kazuha, Xiangling, and Bennett. 

  • Why I Chose This Team: Kazuha can swirl Hydro extremely well using his Elemental Skill and Burst. 

The roles of the characters are listed below: 

  • Childe: Main DPS 
  • Kazuha: Support + Swirl reaction 
  • Xiangling: Pyro support and Vaporize Proc
  • Bennett: Healer + Normal attack buffer 

For the pros and cons are as follows: 

Pros  Cons 
Childe can change his stance using his Elemental Skill.  Swirling the Hydro using Kazuha’s Burst is quite difficult
Kazuha can boost damage using his Elemental Burst N/A

Childe 

Childe is a five-star Hydro main DPS who can unleash change stances using his Elemental Skill. 

He can use his ELemental Skill to target enemies with Hydro damage and react with Xiangling to produce Vapirize reactions. 

He can use 2 pieces of Heart of Depth and 2 Gladiator’s Finale with the Rust as his best in-slot weapon: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Hydro Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate

Kazuha

Moving on with the Genshin Impact Best Anemo Teams, Kazuha is a five-star Anemo character who can Swirl elements and buff damage. 

He Swirls Tartaglia’s Hydro damage and can also buff him up, allowing for greater hydro damage. 

He can use the 4 piece Viridescent Venereers with the Iron Sting: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: EM
  • Goblet: EM 
  • Circlet: EM 

Xiangling

Moving on, Xiangling is a four-star Pyro character who can pair perfectly with Childe to boost the damage done by the Vaporize reaction. She supports the Anemo teams in Genshin Impact by using her Elemental Burst, and Childe can use his Elemental Skill. 

She uses the four-piece Emblem of Severed Fate with the Favonius Lance: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ER%
  • Goblet: Pyro Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 

Bennett

Lastly, Bennett can pair well to be a stand-in and provide solid heals and buff Childe’s Attack.

  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: HP%

After spending hours playing Genshin Impact, the best Anemo Teams include characters such as Wanderer, Xiao, and Faruzan. Personally, when I used them, I noticed way better overall synergy and team play. It was incredibly easy for me to make combos and reactions that dealt tons of damage. As such, if you have the characters, I’d highly suggest going for this team.
