Kazuha is one of the many five-star characters available in Genshin Impact. First introduced in the 2.8 updates, this seafaring ronin has since won the hearts of many players and become a staple in many of the game’s meta-team compositions. Here’s a brief overview of his background, abilities, and role.

How to Play Kazuha in Genshin Impact

Kazuha is a wandering samurai from Inazuma who uses the power of Anemo and his family’s special sword techniques to cut down enemies. He is a member of the now-defunct Kaedehara Clan, which was known for its bladesmiths and sword masters. Calm and soft-spoken, Kazuha spends his days with Liyue’s Crux Fleet as a member of Beidou’s crew.

In-game, he works best as a Sub-DPS/Enabler character who excels at priming enemies for big elemental combos. His Elemental Skill, Chihayaburu, can group targets up into a tight formation. Meanwhile, his Elemental Burst, Kazuha Slash, creates a large Anemo field that periodically deals damage while simultaneously triggering elemental reactions.

Outside of combat, Kazuha is also a great character for traversing the world of Genshin Impact. Chihayaburu launches him upward, giving players that extra vertical bump they need to reach certain ledges or get some extra airtime while gliding.

As mentioned above, the Sub-DPS/Enabler role is where Kazuha shines most. He can be built as an EM buffer or Main DPS carry, but he is at his most effective when used as the primary driver for elemental combos.

The Viridescent Venerer set is perfect for Sub-DPS Kazuha. Not only does it give a 60% bonus to his Anemo DMG, but it also shreds 40% off of the resistances of all enemies affected by Swirl. Combine this with a high Elemental Mastery stat from individual artifact pieces and weapons like Freedom-sworn or Xiphos Moonlight, and players will be able to clear bosses, domains, and Abyss floors in no time.

As far as team comps are concerned, he can fit in almost anywhere, even in Physical DMG teams. His utility is just that good. However, his best synergies lie in Hyperbloom comps. Team him up with Ayato, Nahida, Raiden Shogun or other equivalent characters then watch as big numbers fill the screen.

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play gacha-based role-playing game currently available on PC, PS4, Android, and iOS.
