Genshin Impact: The BEST Geo Teams [Top 4]

I spent 2000+ hours playing Genshin, and below are my listed recommendations and characters for the best Geo teams!

Genshin Impact has blessed players with a good range of geo characters that you can play with. The Geo characters can be excellent DPSes and provide good support. Players might want to know the best Geo teams in Genshin Impact, alongside the best artifacts and characters to put in the teams! 

Important: Geo teams work the best with Geo supports of their own, AKA matching their same element.
Key Takeaways
  • The Best Geo Teams feature teams that utilize the best characters, such as Itto, Albedo, Ningguang, and Gorou.
  • The main advantage of using Geo teams is that players can easily create crystallized shields and protect themselves. 
  • One disadvantage is that Geo teams don’t work well with Genshin Impact’s other elemental free characters as well as they do with Geo characters. 
  • Players must significantly farm the best artifacts and build the best weapons for their Geo teams in Genshin Impact.

1. Mono Geo Comp 

The best mono-geo damage team.

One of the first teams that are geo-based includes that of a mono geo comp, which features characters such as Itto, as well as Albedo, Gorou, and Zhongli, all of whom work together explicable well to destroy enemies with stones (quite literally). 

The roles of the characters are listed below: 

  • Itto: Main DPS + Burst damage dealer 
  • Gorou: Support + Attack buffer + Def increase 
  • Albedo: Support + Burst damage dealer 
  • Zhongli: Shielder 
  • Why I Chose This Team: Itto’s burst damage can be boosted using Gorou, albedo, and Zhongli. 

The pros and cons of each team are listed as follows: 

Pros  Cons 
High AoE damage.  Albedo is tough to get as he is a limited character.
Zhongli provides the best shield N/A

Itto

Starting things off, Itto is a five-star geo character who is the best himbo in town! He can unleash his cow at enemies and use his burst to do normal enhanced attacks on them. He acts as the main DPS in the best geo teams and can detonate enemies with the right kinds of support. 

He can use the Husk of Opulent Dreams with the Redhorn Stonethresher as his weapon of choice: 

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

Gorou 

Moving on, Gorou is another solid addition, as he is a four-star geo character. He proves to be the best support for Itto, as he can buff them up by providing both a Defense increase as well a damage output increase. 

The Husk of Opulent Dreams combined with the Favonius Warbrow are the best choices for him:

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

Albedo 

Next up, Albedo is yet another excellent addition to the team, as he is a five-star Geo team. He acts as a support as his Elemental Burst can detonate enemies if he is built correctly. 

He can use the 4 piece Husk of Opulent Dreams with the Cinnabar Spindle as listed below: 

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

Zhongli

Last but not least, Zhongli is a five-star Geo character who can provide the best shielding known to mankind.

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

2. Ningguang Detonation 

The best catalyst team.

Moving on, the next team that I personally love playing includes Ningguang, who is probably one of the best DPSes in-game if you don’t have a solid few options. The characters featured include Bennett, Zhongli, and Yunjin. 

The roles of each of the characters in the Genshin Geo teams are listed as follows: 

  • Ningguang: Main DPS 
  • Bennett: Healer + Attack buffer 
  • Yunjin: Support + Attack speed increase 
  • Zhongli: Shielder 
  • Why I Chose This Team: Ningguang can enhance the damage she deals with using Bennett and Yunjin. 

The pros and cons of the Ningguang team are as follows: 

Pros  Cons 
Ningguang is a great f2p DPS.  Ningguang can be replaced by other five-star geo characters. 
Zhongli provides the best shield N/A

Ningguang

One of the team’s first characters is Ningguang, a four-star Geo character who can annihilate enemies using her Normal and Charged attacks. She is the Main DPS, as she can pair well with Yunjin and Bennett.

Next up, another solid team comp I’ve tried includes Xiao, which features characters like Jean, Albedo, and Zhongli.

The roles of the characters in the following team are listed below: 

  • Xiao: Main DPS
  • Jean: Healer + Sub-DPS
  • Zhongli: Shielder 
  • Albedo: Sub-DPS + Burst Geo Damage 
  • Why I Chose This Team: Xiao’s plunge damage can be boosted using Jean, and Xiao can stay protected while using Zhongli. 

The pros and cons of the team for Xiao and Jean are as follows: 

Pros  Cons 
Xiao provides one of the best Plunge damage.  Xiao is a limited character.

Zhongli

Moving on, Zhongli is one of the best Shielders I have found while playing Genshin Impact, and he is absolutely broken. 

In this team, he can also be used as a Nuke support using his Elemental Burst, but he is mainly used as a support by providing a shield. 

He can use the 4 piece Tenacity of the Millelith with the Black Tassel as mentioned below:

  • Sands: HP%

  • Hutao: Main DPS 
  • Xingqiu: Support + Hydro Applicator 
  • Bennett: Healer + Attack Buffer 
  • Why I Chose This Team: Zhongli can be a broken or burst support. 

The pros and cons for this team are as follows: 

Pros  Cons

My Thoughts 

After spending 750+ hours grinding Genshin, Geo teams tend to be particularly difficult to use and carry out rotations; despite that, a team with Itto, Albedo, and Zhongli outdoes everything. This really interesting video by Sprixx on Youtube showcases the current state of Geo and if it can still hold up!

While you’re here, why not read up on the Unlock Co-Op in the Genshin Impact guide written by Huzaifah Durrani? Other than that, the Genshin Impact Weapon Tier List written by Irfan Ansari is worth reading, too!
