Weapons hold immense significance in the captivating world of Genshin Impact, serving as the primary tools of combat for the game’s diverse roster of characters. These weapons come in various forms, ranging from mighty swords and fierce polearms to elegant bows and devastating catalysts. Each weapon possesses its own distinct attributes, such as attack power, elemental affinity, and specialized abilities, enabling players to strategically choose the most suitable weapon for their characters’ playstyle and elemental synergies.
Ganyu is one of the strongest DPS in the game and since she’s currently having her rerun in Version 3.6, we thought it would be a good time to discuss her best weapon options for all players and playstyles.
Ganyu’s Best Weapons in Genshin Impact 3.6
Ganyu has a plethora of weapon options due to her versatile kit and playstyle options. That said, if you do intend to use her as a support or Burst DPS in a Freeze team, we recommend only the 4-star support bows since 5-star support bows have high value and are better used on other characters.
Ganyu’s best 4-star weapons are actually F2P so you can also get their maximum refinement if you have enough bow prototypes.
- Prototype Crescent- Great overall weapon except against enemies without a weak spot.
- Hamayumi- Another great option even though it vastly reduces the utility of her elemental burst.
For an off-field Burst support or Freeze Ganyu, any of the following weapons can be a good pick:
- End of the Line- Decent option since it gives ER and deals AoE DMG.
- Fading Twilight- Another decent ER weapon that also works off-field.
- Favonius Warbow- Best weapon for off-field support Ganyu due to its high ER bonus.
- Stringless- To be considered only when she has enough ER as this can buff her Skill and Burst DMG.
Ganyu’s 5-star options are basically almost all of the 5-star DPS bows in the game and even though her signature weapon is very strong and requires low investment, it’s still not actually her best-in-slot option.
- Polar Star- Overall her best-in-slot weapon.
- Aqua Simulacra- The best option for Melt Ganyu and the second-best option overall.
- Amos’ Bow- Ganyu’s signature weapon but it scales badly with high investment.
- Hunter’s Path- Excellent for Melt Ganyu.
- Skyward Harp- Great stat stick and better than all her 4-star options.
- Thundering Pulse- Another great stat stick even though its Normal Attack buff from its passive is useless on Ganyu.
Obtaining and upgrading weapons is essential for progressing through challenging quests, conquering formidable bosses, and excelling in the game’s cooperative multiplayer mode. Additionally, weapons often possess their own lore and tales, intertwining with the rich narrative of Teyvat and providing players with deeper insights into the world’s history and the characters’ personal journeys. From forging mighty weapons to unlocking their true potential through refinements and enhancements, Genshin Impact emphasizes the importance of weapons as essential tools that empower adventurers to rise above adversity and unravel the mysteries of a breathtaking universe.
