Genshin Impact: The BEST Traveler Teams [Top 3]

I invested more than 700+ days and below are my recommendations for the best Traveler builds and their artifacts!

Genshin Impact has had the Traveler as the main protagonist since its release, and with five regions, the Traveler keeps getting updated with newer elements. Players might want to know what the Genshin Impact Best Traveler Teams are, and what artifacts and team comps to use with them! 

Important: Anemo and Hydro Traveler teams are pretty difficult to make since the elements are weaker for the Traveler and require higher investment.
Key Takeaways
  • The Best Genshin Impact Traveler Teams feature the best characters, such as Nahida, Zhongli, Hutao, Xiangling, and Xiao. 
  • The main advantage of using Traveler teams is that players can benefit frome the broken Dendro MC.
  • One disadvantage is that the Hydro and Anemo traveler MC is pretty weak and doesn’t show a high DPS potential. 
  • Players must significantly farm the best artifacts and build the best weapons for their Traveler teams.

1) Anemo Swirl Composition 

The first of the Best Genshin Swirl Traveler Teams includes the Anemo MC, which focuses on prioritizing the Swirl reaction and has characters like Xiao, Xiangling, and Bennett. 

The roles of the characters and how they perform in the team are all listed as follows: 

  • Anemo MC: Sub-DPS and Swirl reaction catalyzed. 
  • Xiao: Main DPS that deals with anemo plunge damage. 
  • Xiangling: Support/ Sub-DPS for Pyro swirl. 
  • Bennett: Healer + Attack buffer with his Burst. 

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

Pros  Cons 
Swirl reaction catalyzing is easy  Focuses on Anemo characters. 
Xiao is an excellent main DPS. 
Bennett provides perfect heals. 

Anemo MC 

Firstly, the Anemo MC serves as the backbone of the team as they can dish out Anemo damage with the Elemental Skill and the Burst. 

Travelers serve as excellent sub-dps and support using their Elemental Skill to swirl Xiangling’s Burst. 

The best artifact is the 4 piece Viridescent Venereer with the Favonius Sword: 

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

Xiao 

Moving on, Xiao is the main DPS in the Swirl Traveler Genshin teams, as he can dish out excellent Anemo damage by using his Elemental Skill and his Elemental Burst. 

He can use the 4 pieces of Viridescent Venereer and his best in-slot, which is the Jade spear, as listed below: 

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

Xiangling

Next up, Xiangling serves as a four-star Pyro unit in the Best Traveler Teams in Genshin. She can unleash Pyro damage using her Elemental Skill and Burst using her Pyronado. 

She can be an excellent support by allowing the Anemo MC to swirl Pyro. 

She uses the 4 Emblem of Severed Fate and the Favonius Lance or Dragon’s Bane: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: Elemental Mastery 
  • Goblet: Elemental Mastery 
  • Circlet: Elemental Mastery 
  • Best Sub-Stats: Elemental Mastery 

or 

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

Bennett

Lastly, in the Genshin Impact Best Traveler Teams, Bennett is a Pyro character who can use his Elemental Skill and Burst to apply Pyro and heal. 

He acts as the healer as well as attack buffer and can use the four-piece Noblesse Oblige in the Traveler Teams in Genshin:

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: HP% 
  • Goblet: HP% 
  • Circlet: HP% 
  • Best Sub-Stats: HP% 

2) Dendro Traveler Bloom 

Next up, probably one of the Best Traveler Teams has to be with the Dendro Traveler, as he is one of the most well-rounded elements released for the Traveler to date. I typically pair the Dendro traveler with Nahida, Xingqiu, and Nilou. 

The roles of each of the characters are as follows: 

  • Dendro Traveler: Sub-DPS/ Support and Dendro team Applicator 
  • Nahida: Support/ Elemental Targeting using Skill.
  • Xingqiu: Hydro applicator and partial Healer 
  • Nilou: Bloom catalyzed with Skill and Burst 

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

Pros  Cons 
Dendro Traveler is excellent support for bloom comps.  Perfect rotations are required to carry out the perfect Bloom reactions. 
The team synergy is near perfect. 

Dendro Traveler 

The Dendro Traveler is an excellent Dendro applicator for the Genshin Impact Best Traveler Teams. They can use their Elemental Skill and Burst to catalyze Bloom reactions when reacting with Hydro. 

The four-piece Deepwood Memories alongside the Freedom Sworn will be the best artifact and weapon choice: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ER% 
  • Goblet: Dendro Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 
  • Best Sub-Stats: Crit Rate/Crit Damage/ ER% 

Nahida

As far as Nahida is concerned, she is the leading support as she is the Dendro archon, and she can use her Dendro skills using her Elemental Skill and Burst.

She acts as a support as she can use the elemental skill to target enemies and apply Dendro on them, which can then be reacted with hydro to cause the bloom reaction. 

She can use the four-piece Deepwood Memories with A Thousand Floating Dreams as her main weapon: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: Elemental Mastery 
  • Goblet: Elemental Mastery 
  • Circlet: Elemental Mastery 
  • Best Sub-Stats: Elemental Mastery 

Xingqiu 

Another pillar to the Traveler Genshin Teams is Xingqiu, a four-star character who can heal using his Burst and apply Hydro using his Elemental Skill to cast the Bloom reaction. 

The 4 piece noblesse oblige with the Favonius Sword can work best for Xingqiu: 

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

Nilou 

Lastly, Nilou is the perfect ending to the combo, as she is a five-star Hydro character who can apply Hydro using her Elemental Skill and Burst. 

She acts as a sub-DPS/Support, catalyzing the Bloom reaction by applying Hydro on targets. 

She can use 2 pieces of Tenacity of the Millelith and 2 Heart of Depth with the Key of Khaj Nisut:

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: HP% 
  • Goblet: HP% 
  • Circlet: HP% 
  • Best Sub-Stats: HP% 

3) Geo Support MC 

Next up, another team composition you can’t miss out on is the Geo MC with characters such as Hutao, Xingqiu, and Zhongli, as they can work amazingly together. 

The roles that each of the characters will play are listed as follows: 

  • Geo MC: Support 
  • Hutao: Main DPS 
  • Xingqiu: Sub-DPS/Support 
  • Zhongli: Shielder 

The pros and cons for the Geo support MC team are as follows:

Pros  Cons 
Geo MC’s rocks can be broken to inflict damage on enemies.  DPS output is less. 
The resonance between Geo MC and Zhongli is broken. 

Geo MC 

Firstly, the Geo MC is an important support as he can use his Elemental Skill to cast down Geo stones, and his Burst can cast out Geo damage in an AoE range. 

The Geo MC can resonate inexplicably well with Zhonglin to enhance the team’s capabilities. 

He can use the 4 piece Archaic Petra as the best artifact, as listed below:

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK% 
  • Goblet: Geo Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 
  • Best Sub-Stats: Crit Rate/Crit Damage/ ER% 

Hutao 

Next up, Hutao is a five-star Pyro DPS character who can unleash Pyro damage using her charged attacks and Burst. 

She is the main DPS in the Traveler Teams in Genshin, and she can use the 4 piece Crimson Witch of Flames with the Staff of Homa: 

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

Xingqiu

Next up, Xingqiu is a four-star support Hydro character in the Genshin Impact Best Traveler Teams, and he can be the healer and Hydro applicator for the Geo teams. 

He uses the four-piece Noblesse Oblige with the Favonius Sword: 

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

Zhongli 

Lastly, Zhongli is the Shielder, as he can use his Elemental Skill to his advantage and protect players, and he also resonates with Geo MC well. 

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% 
  • Best Sub-Stats: HP% 

My Thoughts 

After investing countless hours playing and maining the Traveler, the best team comps with them will consist of the Dendro MC or the Geo MC, which provides the highest damage output and the best team compatibilities.
