Genshin Impact BEST Fontaine Teams [2000 Hours Experience]

I played Genshin Impact for 2000+ hours and after trying out various Fontaine teams, here are my recommendations for the top 3 best teams.

Genshin Impact Fontaine region release has expanded the possibility for the best Fontaine teams that players can select. With characters like Wriothesley, Neuvillette, and Lyney, players might want to know what the best team compositions might be for exploration as well as overall damage output. 

Important: These teams are highly invested and require optimal substats and weapons to work best in their respective teams.
Key Takeaways
  • The Genshin Impact Fontaine Teams are ranked based on their damage output and exploration combined with their usability during combat. 
  • The main advantage is that it makes progression in Fontaine more accessible, and doing abyss and fighting enemies becomes easier.
  • The main disadvantage of aiming to build a Fontaine team is that most characters are highly invested and need perfect artifacts to work well. 
  • Significantly, players farm for characters and use the correct weapon and the correct artifacts to maximize the damage output for each team.

Below listed is a summarized version of the Best Fontaine Teams, alongside the characters and artifacts:

1. Neuvillette Hyper Bloom Team

First things first, one of the most broken characters is Neuvillette, who is a Hydro five-star unit that focuses on AoE damage, and below listed are some of the characters in his Team: 

  • Neuvillette: Hydro hyper-carry and main DPS that will deal the highest amount of damage. 
  • Nahida: She will act as a Bloom trigger by reacting Dendro with Hydro when used with Neuivillette. 
  • Kazuha: He triggers crowd control for the team by grouping the opponents during a battle and grants damage buffs. 
  • Kuki Shinobu: Electro support to activate hydro bloom cores and healer at C2. 


The first main carry will be Neuvillette, who focuses on dealing hydro damage by charging his main skill and using his ultimate to detonate enemies. 

Below listed is the Marechaussee Hunter 4-piece set, alongside the substations used to enhance Neuvillette’s role: 

PiecesStatsWhy Choose It

  • As for the weapons, players want to pull for the Tome of the Eternal Flow, as it is his best in-slot weapon; however, the Sacrificial Jade can be a suitable replacement as a four-star weapon. 


Moving on, Nahida will act as a damage dealer by using her elemental skill, but she will also be able to help trigger the Bloom reaction by having Neuvillette react with Hydro after applying her Dendro skill. 

Below listed is the Deepwood Memories 4 piece set with the optimal stats and substats to prioritize to maximize her damage output:
