In Genshin Impact, different characters control different elements, each with its unique properties. Among them, Anemo, the Element of Wind, hosts some of the most varied and compelling characters. This guide will take you on a detailed tour of every character that uses the Anemo element in Genshin Impact to help you better understand their abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Let’s dive in!

1. Anemo Traveler

Genshin Impact Anemo Traveler

The Anemo Traveler is where most players begin their journey in Teyvat. While admittedly not the most powerful Anemo character, the Traveler has a versatile skill set with crowd control, the ability to adapt to different elements and reasonable damage. Just simply not the best at any particular aspect.

2. Sayu

Sayu, a pint-sized ninja from Inazuma, excels as a healer, with her Elemental Skill boosting her speed and allowing her to get close to enemies or retreat quickly. She might not be the most powerful Anemo character, but she certainly knows how to stick around!

3. Jean

Genshin Impact Jean

As the Acting Grand Master of Knights of Favonius, Jean utilizes her Anemo power effectively both for offense and defense. She does a fair job of crowd control and can heal her teammates through her normal attacks. She is as reliable as she is noble.

4. Sucrose

Sucrose might not seem too impressive at first glance, but she brings a lot of utility to the table. With her abilities to cause swift reactions and Buff team's Elemental Mastery, she helps the rest of your team deal more damage effortlessly.

5. Xiao

Genshin Impact Xiao

Xiao is one of the few DPS Anemo characters in Genshin Impact. His quick and furious attack style, coupled with his Plunge Attacks during Elemental Burst, allows him to dish out loads of damage rapidly. Yet, he needs support to balance his self-inflicted Injuries during his Burst phase.

6. Venti

Venti is a versatile potent support character that fits in nearly any team composition. His ability to gather enemies in one place and reduce enemy resistance to elemental damage makes him an ideal setup partner for your main DPS.

7. Kazuha

Genshin Impact game Kazuha

Kazuha is currently hailed as one of the best Anemo characters. His ability to buff the party's Elemental damage and cause great swirl damage, coupled with a skill set great for exploration, makes him an indispensable asset to many team compositions.

To conclude, Anemo may not have the most playable characters in Genshin Impact, but the characters it possesses certainly bring a lot to the table. Whether it's control, support, or damage, the wind element hosts many all-around talented characters, making it an important part of any team composition. Ultimately, Kazuha takes the crown for the best Anemo user thanks to his ability to optimize overall party damage and his powerful Swirl reactions. Keep practicing, and you'll be able to maximize these characters' potential in your journey through Teyvat!
