Genshin Impact: The BEST Pyro Teams [Top 3]

I spent 750+ days playing Pyro teams, and below listed are my recommendations for the best artifacts and characters for Pyro teams!

Genshin Impact and its Pyro element feature a wide variety of team comps that can be created to decimate enemies. Players might want to know some of the best Genshin Impact Pyro Teams alongside their artifacts and characters featured. 

Important: Pyro teams work exceptionally well with Hydro characters but not as well with Dendro characters!
Key Takeaways
  • The Best Pyro Teams feature teams that utilize characters such as Yoimiya, Xiangling, Bennett, and Yanfei.
  • The main advantage of using Pyro teams is that players can easily proc Vape reactions with Hydro characters in their teams.
  • One disadvantage is that Pyro teams don’t work well with Genshin Impact’s Dendro free characters.
  • Players must significantly farm the best artifacts and build the best weapons for their Pyro teams in Genshin Impact. 

1) Yoimiya Domination 

The best single-target damage team.

One of the first Genshin Impact Best Pyro Teams focuses on featuring characters such as Yoimiya, Yelan, Yunjin, and Zhongli. 

Below listed are the team compositions as well as the roles that the characters play: 

  • Yoimiya: Main DPS
  • Yelan: Sub-DPS and Hydro applicator 
  • Yunjin: Attack speed buffer 
  • Zhongli: Geo resonance and Shielder 
  • Why I Chose This Team: Yoimiya’s Single-target damage is crucial for boss fights, and she is one of the strongest characters in-game.

The pros and cons of the Yoimiya team are listed as follows: 

Pros  Cons 
High single-target damage.  Yoimiya can’t deal good AoE damage. 
Yunjin buffs normal attack speed at C6. High investment team
Zhongli can provide excellent Shielding N/A

Yoimiya 

Firstly, Yoimiya is an excellent five-star Pyro character who acts as the main DPS and can single-handedly dominate the abyss and overworld with this Genshin team.

She is the Main DPS, and she can use her Elemental Skill to charge her regular attacks, and then her Burst can prove to be deadly to enemies. 

Below listed are her best artifacts, which is the 4 piece Shimenawa’s Reminiscence with the Thundering Pulse: 

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

Yelan

Moving on, Yelan acts as the second DPS in the team, but she is primarily used as a Hydro applicator to allow Yoimiya to Vaporize in the Genshin Pyro Teams. 

She uses the 4 piece Noblesse Oblige for its passive as well as the Aqua Simulacra: 

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

Yunjin

When it comes to Yunjin, she is a four-star Geo character who can work pretty well with Yoimiya as a support. 

She acts as the perfect support by enhancing Yoimiya’s Normal attack by increasing the attack speed and the Attack speed, which increases Yoimiya’s bonus. 

The best artifacts for her are the 4 piece Husk of Opulent Dreams listed below: 

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

Zhongli

Lastly, Zhongli is the binding pillar (haHA) in the Pyro Teams in Genshin Impact, as he is a five-star Geo character. 

He acts as a support by providing excellent shielding to Yoimiya and all other characters in the team, and with Yunjin in the team, he can also activate his Geo resonance. 

The best artifacts for Zhongli in the Genshin Impact Best Teams are the 4 piece Tenacity of the Millelith: 

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

2) Hutao Vaporize 

The best Vape reaction team comp.

Moving on with these teams, the Hutao Vaporize team features characters such as Hu Tao, Xingqiu or Yelan, Zhongli, and Kazuha, and the team features applying Hydro to proc Vaporization reaction using Xingqiu. 

The roles of the characters are listed as follows: 

  • Hutao: Main DPS 
  • Xingqiu/Yelan: Support/ Hydro Applicator 
  • Kazuha: Support + Hydro Swirl 
  • Zhongli: Shielder 
  • Why I Chose This Team: Hutao and Yelan work together to create the most devastating Vape reactions and Hydro applications against enemies. 

The pros and cons of this team are listed below: 

Pros  Cons 
High single-target and AoE damage.  Hutao requires perfect artifacts and crit stats to work properly.  
Kazuha buffs total damage output.  High investment team
Xingqiu can proc Vape reactions with ease.  N/A

Hutao 

Firstly, Hutao is an excellent main DPS Pyro character and can fit well in the Genshin Pyro Teams, as her damage output is pretty high. 

She pairs exceptionally well with Xingqiu to procure the Vaporization reaction with Xingqiu’s Hydro application using his Elemental Burst. 

She uses the 4 piece Crimson Witch of Flames with her best in-slot, which is the Staff of Homa: 

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

Xingqiu/Yelan

Next up, Xingqiu can also be replaced with Yelan if needed as both serve the same purpose: to act as Hydro applicator and support for Hutao being the main DPS. 

If Yelan doesn’t work, Xingqiu is probably one of the most broken four-star Hydro characters. 

He uses the four-piece Noblesse Oblige with the Sacrificial Sword as his weapon of choice: 

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

Kazuha

Moving on, Kazuha works exceptionally well as he is a five-star Anemo unit that can fit right in with the Genshin Teams. 

He acts as a support by providing Swirl reactions using Hydro and Pyro, as well as being able to buff the teammates’ damage output. 

He uses the 4 piece Viridescent Venereer with the Freedom Sworn as his best weapon, as listed below: 

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

Zhongli

Lastly, Zhongli is a five-star Geo character in Genshin Impact that everyone adores, as he is the primary support. He can provide a broken Shield to all teammates and decrease the enemies’ overall defense.

He uses the 4 piece Tenacity of the Millelith with the Black Tassel: 

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

3) Yanfei/Yelan Combo 

The best free-to-play Pyro team comp.

Moving on, the next Genshin Impact Pyro Teams will focus on characters such as Yanfei, Xingqiu Yelan, Bennett, and Zhongli. 

The roles of all the characters are listed below as follows: 

  • Yanfei: Main DPS 
  • Xingqiu/Yelan: Support and Hydro Applicator 
  • Bennett: Attack Buffer and healer 
  • Zhongli: Shielder 
  • Why I Chose This Team: Yanfei is a great free-to-play option and her charged attacks can render enemies useless with her high Pyro Damage.

The pros and cons for the Yanfei comp are listed below: 

Pros  Cons 
High AoE damage.  Yelan is a better investment than Xingqiu.
Bennett buffs the total base attack with his Ult.  Yanfei won’t work well with Burgeon comps. 
Xingqiu can proc Vape reactions with Yanfei.  N/A

Yanfei 

Starting things off with Yanfei, she is a four-star Pyro character that can replace a few five-star units if you don’t already have them. I have tried Yanfei, and she can act as a proper Pyro DPS by using her charged attacks and detonating enemies. 

She uses the 4 pieces Wanderer’s Troupe with the Widsith or the Lost Prayer: 

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

Xingqiu 

Next up, Xingqiu can be a crucial component as he can support a four-star character and proc Vaporize with Yanfei’s Charged attacks. 

He uses the Four piece Noblesse Oblige with the Sac Sword as his weapon of choice: 

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

Bennett

Regarding Bennett and using him in the Pyro Teams, he is a four-star Pyro character who can simultaneously support and be a crucial component. 

He can heal characters and provide attack buffs to increase the total damage output. 

He uses the four-piece Noblesse Oblige as listed below: 

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

Zhongli

Lastly, Zhongli is the same as he has been in other team comps, acting as a broken Shielder and supporting all teams. 

He uses the four-piece Tenacity set with the Black Tassel as his best in-slot: 

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