Genshin Impact 2.5 Best Character Tier List: DPS, Sub DPS, Support

Read this guide to find out Genshin Impact’s best character tier list so won’t build the wrong character. Basically, there’s no useless character in Genshin Impact, but because there are a lot of them, a few of them is considered better than the others.

But if you play Genshin Impact because you like the character is design, for example, I think tier list doesn’t suit you. Just play what you want. In the end, Genshin Impact is an RPG adventure game, not a competitive one.

I’ve already played this game for a long time and Mihoyo as the developer use one rule for their 5-star character, the newer one is considered better than the oldest one like Diluc.

Marketing strategy so people buy Primogems for the new character? Maybe.

Genshin Impact just like the other RPG games, each character has their own role. There are three: DPS, Sub DPS, and Support.

To make this tier list more understandable, I will divide those characters based on their roles. Below the tier list, I will explain a little bit about that character and recommended constellation.

Just remember this game is called Genshin Impact, not DPS Impact. These things become a meme because some people judge a good character only from their damage.
