Genshin Impact: BEST Sunfire Jean Build [2024]

Here are my best recommendations for the best team comps to use for a Sunfire Build after playing for 2000+ hours!

Genshin Impact has had Jean out for quite a while, though a sun-fire build has been pretty niche amongst players for a while. Players might want to know the best artifacts, as well as characters to choose for the Genshin Impact Best Sunfire Build guide! 

Important: Sunfire teams are extremely niche, and are typically difficult to get off as they require specific artifacts and the perfect rotation.
Key Takeaways
  • The Best Sunfire Build feature teams that utilize characters such as Jean, Bennett and Raiden in Genshin Impact. 
  • The main advantage of using a Sunfire Build is that Bennett is typically easy to acquire from the Standard banner, therefore he can come in handy for the team. 
  • One disadvantage is that Sunfire teams absolutely require you to have Jean, who is a difficult character to acquire with no pity. 
  • Players must significantly farm the best artifacts for the characters and build the best weapons for their Sunfire teams.

1) Sunfire OverVape

One of the first team comps includes characters such as Bennett and Jean, two of whom are crucial elements to the team and cannot be replaced, alongside two characters such as Raiden for Overload and Xingqiu for Vape. 

  • Why I chose this team: Mixing Vape with Overload can have interesting reactions when used with Sunfire. .

The roles of each of the characters in the Genshin Best Sunfire Teams are mentioned as follows: 

  • Raiden: Overload with Bennett 
  • Bennett: Elemental Burst Applicator for Sunfire 
  • Jean: Burst Applicator 
  • Xingqiu: Vape with Bennett 

The pros and cons for using a Sunfire Overvape are listed as follows in my opinion: 

  • Xingqiu is able to proc Vape with Bennett. 
  • Jean is not a guaranteed character. 

Bennett

One of the first characters in the team is Bennett, a four-star Pyro team sword user who is an indispensable part of the Genshin Best Teams. 

While he is in the team, his main focus is to apply his Elemental Burst using his Q to trigger Sunfire with Jean. 

For his artifacts, the Noblesse Oblige set with a weapon that grants him a high base attack is favored in my opinion: 

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

Jean

As far as Jean is concerned, she is the main component of the Sunfire Team and a five-star Anemo sword user. 

While she is present in the team, her main focus is to apply her Elemental Burst and Bennett’s Burst in the correct rotation as needed. 

She uses the 4 piece Viridescent Venereer for her artifacts as they best suit her as per my experience: 

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

Raiden 

Now, when it comes to Raiden in the Best Sunfire Build in Genshin, any character other than Bennett and Jean is a side character, as Raiden is a five-star Polearm user. 

She is present in the team to trigger overload with Bennett, as she can use her Elemental Skill and Burst to fit in Bennett and Jean’s rotation. 

She can use the 4 piece Emblem of Severed Fate with the Catch as her weapon of choice as mentioned follows as per my testing: 

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

Xingqiu

Last but not least, Xingqiu is a four-star Hydro character sword who happens to be the final key to the team. 

In the team, he is supposed to proc Hydro for Vape with Bennett, and he can do either with his Elemental Skill or his Elemental Burst as required. 

He can use the 4 piece Noblesse Oblige as well as with the Sacrificial Sword: 

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

2) Sunfire Overload

Another interesting Best Sunfire Team that you can try out features characters such as Bennett, Jean, and Raiden, as well as Xianging.

The team’s main aim typically relies on carrying out Sunfire as needed by Bennett and Jean’s Bursts, but also fits in two other slots, Xiangling and Raiden, to trigger Overload. 

  • Why I chose this team: Xiangling and Raiden’s Elemental Bursts can proc the best Overload reaction

The most fitting roles of each of the characters after testing them myself for a while are as follows: 

  • Raiden: Overload Trigger
  • Bennett: Elemental burst user 
  • Jean: Sunfire Trigger 
  • Xiangling: Overload with Raiden 

The pros and cons of using an Overload team with Sunfire is as follows: 

  • Jean and Bennett are indispensable assets to Sunfire. 
  • Xiangling and Raiden can proc Overload perfectly. 
  • None. 

Bennett 

When it comes to Bennett, he is an excellent, overpowered four-star sword character that still cannot be replaced. 

In the team, his main role is to trigger Sunfire using his Elemental Burst, typically carried out before Jean’s Burst is applied. 

He can use the 4 piece Noblesse Set as it has a good amount of supporting stats for Bennett:

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

Jean 

As far as Jean is concerned, she is a five-star Sword character as well, and she is not only a pretty good sub-DPS but also, in general, apart from the Sunfire team, heals pretty well. 

While being part of the team, however, she can trigger Sunfire, as the rotation for her turn follows after Bennett’s Skill as well as Burst is applied. 

She uses the  Viridescent Venereer for her artifacts, as mentioned below as per my testing: 

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

Raiden 

When it comes to Raiden Shogun teams in Genshin, she is a five-star Polearm user, and she is not only the archon, but she is also one of the best characters for Overload in Best Sunfire Build. 

She can get a ring of Electro around her back and give it to her teammates with her Elemental Skill, and she can trigger Overload with Xiangling. 

She uses the 4 piece Emblem artifact set, and a weapon like the Catch is the perfect fit for her: 

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

Xiangling

Last but not least, Xiangling is yet another overpowered four-star Polearm character who happens to be Pyro character

She is one of the best characters to pair together with Raiden as her Elemental Burst and Raiden’s Elemental Burst can trigger Overloaded. 

She can use the Crimson Witch set as needed to have the best outcome: 

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