Zhongli is one of the most hyped characters of Genshin Impact. Now that he is available in the game, players have already started to perform Wishes to get him. Though, if you are free to play player and don’t have any Primogems left, then check out our previous article “Genshin Impact To Issue 800 Primogems To All Players“.

Now moving forward with the topic, today we are going to talk about Zhongli’s abilities, best weapons, artifacts, and certain builds that will help players who are trying to use Zhongli as the main DPS character.

Zhongli’s Elemental Skill and Burst Attacks

Vago Mundo aka Zhongli is the Geo Archon whose elemental skill and burst abilities deals devastating AoE damage. The elemental skill Dominus Lapidis calls forth a stone stele that deals Geo damage upon impact as well as a pulsing AoE Geo damage over the time.

Alike other playable characters’ elemental skill abilities, Zhongli also has two forms of elemental skill. Holding the elemental skill button deals a burst of AoE Geo damage to nearby enemies as well as creating a defensive shield that scales with Zhongli’s Max HP.

The later elemental skill is useful while dealing with enemies with Geo shields, as the attack either weakens the shield or completely destroys the shield.

The Elemental Burst Planet Befall summons a huge Geo Meteor that that upon impact petrifies all nearby enemies. Zhongli’s elemental burst is an ability that players can use to clear Domains, Spiral Abyss, and such other places where we can find a group of enemies altogether.

High DPS Builds for Zhongli

When it comes down to high DPS builds, we generally cover two forms of DPS, one being the the physical DPS and the other one is the Elemental DPS. Though, in case of Zhongli we are going to talk about the Physical DPS, as when it comes down to elemental skill, Zhongli abilities do deal high damage but it happens over the time.

So, we recommend using Zhongli as a support character if you want to increase the elemental skill and burst stats.

That being aside, let’s us talk about Zhongli’s High Physical DPS build.
