Genshin DPS Tier List

4.9/5 - (246 votes)

DPS stands for Damage Per Second. In Genshin Impact, DPS characters are on-field damage dealers that provide strong amplified damage with their Skills and Burst through Elemental Reactions, with a focus on using Normal and Charged Attacks. They bear the bulk of the damage with the help of their Sub-DPS and Supports.

What is the difference between Main DPS, Sub DPS, and Support?

  • The Main DPS character in Genshin Impact typically deals lots of damage and is the character that will primarily carry your team in the game. For these reasons, they are on the field most of the time.
  • Sub-DPS characters fall somewhere between a Support and the Main DPS character in Genshin Impact. They can deal a lot of damage, but they are sometimes replaced by another support character depending on the team composition. They should synergize well with your Main DPS character.
  • The Support DPS role in Genshin Impact has a lot of other names: sub-DPS, off-field DPS, and secondary DPS, just to name a few. This role focuses on augmenting the carry’s (also known as main DPS) damage, by either providing significant damage boosts, or by simply doing a lot of damage even when not on the field.

Genshin Impact Team Building Basics

Here are some basics for team building in Genshin Impact:

  • Generally, a team in Genshin Impact is composed of a main DPS character, one or two sub-DPS characters, and one or two support characters. The number of sub-DPS and support characters is interchangeable which means you can have two support characters and a sub-DPS character or two sub-DPS characters and a support character on the team.
  • Have at least three elemental reactions at your disposal.
  • Build your team around what you have and who you feel comfortable playing.
  • Know what each elemental resonance does.
  • Healers are your best friend and make the game easier.
