Genshin Impact Faruzan build, artifacts, and more

The best Genshin Impact Faruzan build HoYoverse's action role-playing game has to offer right now turns her into a monstrous Anemo support.

Genshin Impact Faruzan build: Faruzan, a blue-haired Anemo user

Genshin Impact’s Faruzan is one of the best four-star characters around, thanks to her ability to both buff the Anemo damage output of her teammates, while shredding enemy Anemo resistance. If you want to get the most out of the bow-toting professor, then this Genshin Impact Faruzan build guide is for you.

Originally released on the Genshin Impact 3.3 banners, Faruzan is one of the newest Genshin Impact characters to make their way into HoYoverse’s hit action role-playing game. Alongside Alhaitham, Faruzan is a part of Haravatat – one of the Six Darshans (schools) of Sumeru’s Akademiya.

The Faruzan build required to fulfil her potential isn’t particularly flexible, due to her innate energy issues. This means that – at least until she reaches her sixth Constellation – you will be looking to funnel everything into keeping her Energy Recharge high enough to allow her to use her premium artifact set.

Genshin Impact Faruzan build overview

To give a brief overview of the best Genshin Impact Faruzan build, here is what you’re going to want:

  • Artifacts: Viridescent Venerer four-piece set
  • Stat priority: Energy Recharge, Crit Rate or Crit Damage, then ATK% or Elemental Mastery
  • Talent priority: Elemental Burst, Elemental Skill, and then Normal Attack
  • Weapon: Favonius Warbow

Below you’ll find our full breakdown of each recommendation, as well as example team comps you should absolutely slot Faruzan into.

Faruzan build artifacts

Faruzan’s best artifact set is Viridescent Venerer. This set ensures that not only is Faruzan shredding Anemo RES from enemies, but the element infused with her ability Swirls too. It’s highly unlikely that you will be running a mono Anemo team, so the set offers plenty of compositional flexibility.

Artifact Effect
Genshin Impact Viridescent VenererViridescent Venerer

Two-piece set: Anemo DMG Bonus +15%

Four-piece set: Increases Swirl DMG by 60%. Decreases opponent’s Elemental RES to the element infused in the Swirl by 40% for 10 seconds.

Genshin Impact Emblem of Severed FateEmblem of Severed Fate

 Two-piece set: Energy Recharge +20%

Four-piece set: Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.

Genshin Impact Noblesse ObligeNoblesse Oblige

 Two-piece set: Elemental Burst DMG +20%

Four-piece set: Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members’ ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.

Genshin Impact The ExileThe Exile

  Two-piece set: Energy Recharge +20%

Four-piece set: Using an Elemental Burst regenerates two Energy for all party members (excluding the wearer) every two seconds for six seconds. This effect cannot stack.

As previously noted, Faruzan suffers from energy issues until her Constellations are maxed. As such, the five-star Emblem of Severed Fate and four-star The Exile sets are solid options as they both offer a 20% ER bonus with two pieces equipped.

If you wish to grant Faruzan extra personal damage, then opt for the Emblem set. Conversely, if you haven’t got the Resin to spare on farming up five-star artifacts, The Exile is farmable from bosses and elite enemies across Teyvat. Additionally, if you’re in dire need of a battery for your main DPS, then its four-piece bonus will bump up the energy regeneration of Faruzan’s party.

The other set of note – particularly for those who have Faruzan at C6 and don’t have good Viridescent Venerer pieces – is Noblesse Oblige. With four pieces equipped, Faruzan’s Elemental Burst will not only do an extra 20% damage, but her party members will also gain a tidy 20% ATK damage buff for 12 seconds.

Noblesse Oblige can not only be farmed, but can also be acquired from the Artifact Strongbox feature. So if you have plenty of trash five-star artifacts to burn, then here’s your chance.

Faruzan build stat priority

Faruzan’s stat priority is Energy Recharge, Crit Rate or Crit DMG, then ATK% or Elemental Mastery.

Slot Main Stat Sub Stat
Flower HP Energy Recharge > Crit Rate/Damage > ATK%/Elemental Mastery
Feather ATK Energy Recharge > Crit Rate/Damage > ATK%/Elemental Mastery
Sands Energy Recharge Crit Rate/Damage > ATK%/Elemental Mastery
Goblet Amemo DMG Bonus Energy Recharge > Crit Rate/Damage > ATK%/Elemental Mastery
Circlet Crit Rate/Damage Energy Recharge > Crit Rate/Damage > ATK%/Elemental Mastery

Ensuring Faruzan has plenty of Energy Recharge is pivotal to ensuring she maintains good up time on her burst. We’ve seen several numbers thrown around with regards to how much ER% she actually needs to burst every rotation, ranging from 220% with Favonius Warbow all the way up to 280% – we weren’t joking when we said she has energy issues.

Ultimately, this’ll come down to the sort of comp you’re running, the existence of other batteries in that comp, Constellations, and weapon choice. Once you find a comp you like that utilises her, and know what weapon and artifact set(s) you can spare, calculate the ER requirements accordingly from there.

Next up is Crit Rate or Crit DMG. If you run Favonius Warbow, you’ll want plenty of Crit Rate to ensure its passive procs consistently. Otherwise try to maintain the golden 1:2 ratio of Crit Rate to Crit DMG, ensuring you have 50% Crit Rate at the minimum.

For Faruzan’s final stat you can go one of two ways. With (hopefully) a ton of crit in your build, prioritising ATK% allows Faruzan to actually pump out a solid amount of damage. Conversely, if you want to maximise her supportive capabilities, bumping up your Elemental Mastery will do wonders for the power of her Swirls. Neither are bad choices, so there is flexibility depending on how you want to play her.

Faruzan build talent priority

Faruzan’s talent priority is Elemental Burst, Elemental Skill, and then Normal Attack.

As a support, Faruzan’s power lies in her Elemental Burst and Elemental Skill. Her burst both buffs her team’s Anemo damage output, and reduces the Anemo resistance of her enemies, making it the main driver of her kit. While her Elemental Skill doesn’t buff team damage, it still shreds Anemo RES.

Faruzan won’t spend a lot of time on the field, and with the impetus on facilitating her team, this leaves her with little time to use Normal Attacks, and little priority on levelling them up.

Faruzan build weapons

Faruzan’s best weapon is the Favonius Warbow. She unfortunately suffers from energy issues prior to reaching C6, necessitating the use of this bow to generate the extra passive particles she desperately needs. This bow essentially allows her to opt for other artifact sets outside of The Exile and Emblem of Severed Fate before her Constellations are maxed.

Weapon Effect
Genshin Impact Favonius WarbowFavonius Warbow


CRIT hits have a 60% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate six Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12 seconds.

Genshin Impact Elegy for the EndElegy for the End

The Parting Refrain

A part of the “Millennial Movement” that wanders amidst the winds. Increases Elemental Mastery by 60.
When the Elemental Skills or Elemental Bursts of the character wielding this weapon hit opponents, that character gains a Sigil of Remembrance. This effect can be triggered once every 0.2 seconds and can be triggered even if said character is not on the field.

When you possess four Sigils of Remembrance, all of them will be consumed and all nearby party members will obtain the “Millennial Movement: Farewell Song” effect for 12 seconds.

“Millennial Movement: Farewell Song” increases Elemental Mastery by 100 and increases ATK by 20%. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Remembrance for 20 seconds.
Of the many effects of the “Millennial Movement,” buffs of the same type will not stack.

Genshin Impact Skyward HarpSkyward Harp

Echoing Ballad

Increases CRIT DMG by 20%. Hits have a 60% chance to inflict a small AoE attack, dealing 125% Physical ATK DMG. Can only occur once every four seconds.

Genshin Impact End of the LineEnd of the Line

Net Snapper

Triggers the Flowrider effect after using an Elemental Skill, dealing 80% ATK as AoE DMG upon hitting an opponent with an attack. Flowrider will be removed after 15 seconds or after causing three instances of AoE DMG. Only one instance of AoE DMG can be caused every two seconds in this way. Flowrider can be triggered once every 12 seconds.

Elegy for the End is a fantastic, premium five-star option that not only has a high base ATK, but gives Faruzan some much-needed Energy Recharge, and the whole team a buff when proc’d. Why is high base ATK important to Faruzan? Well, one of her passives gives allied characters affected by her burst a further damage buff equivalent to 32% of her base ATK. It’s not much in the grand scheme of things, but every little helps in the Abyss.

Next up we have Skyward Harp, which has the highest base ATK out of any bow. Additionally, the Crit Rate from its secondary stat, and Crit DMG provided passively can help ensure she hits as hard as possible.

Finally, on the free-to-play front, we have End of the Line. Though reminiscent of a swordfish in design, this bowfish can be redeemed from the Sumeru Fishing Association should you catch enough of the region’s specialties.

Faruzan build team comps

As the premier support for Anemo carries make sure that, when it comes to putting together Faruzan team comps, she is paired with one of the main DPS options out there right now in Heizou, Scaramouche (Wanderer), or Xiao.

Character Role
Scaramouche (Wanderer)

Main on-field DPS

Incredibly hard-hitting Anemo main DPS.

Faruzan Support


Fischl offers excellent off-field damage, an energy battery to the team, and Scaramouche gains 0.8 Energy from Normal or Charged Attacks every 0.2 seconds while in an Electro-contacted instance of his Elemental Skill.



Bennett provides a solid AoE heal, and an ATK buff to any who stand within that AoE whose health is over 70%. Additionally, he can generate a lot of energy particles when paired with Favonius Sword.

This first example team effectively funnels a ton of energy into Faruzan – who Swirls either Fischl’s Electro or Bennett’s Pyro – and Scaramouche to ensure these mighty Anemo characters have maximum uptime on their bursts. You’ll probably want our Scaramouche build for this.

There is a lot of flexibility with characters here. For example, Raiden Shogun can slot in for Fischl as a more premium battery/secondary DPS. Alternatively, swapping Fischl out for Zhongli’s shields will help ensure Scaramouche stays above 70% HP in order to receive the ATK buff from Bennett’s Elemental Burst.

Meanwhile, Scaramouche can be swapped out for either of the aforementioned Xiao or Heizou, both of whom play nicely with Bennett’s AoE. Note: Heizou also likes Viridescent Venerer, potentially opening up a Noblesse Oblige/other Artifact route for Faruzan.

Big buffs, endless energy. It’s a solid combo.

Character Role

Main on-field DPS

Strong Viridescent Venerer-using Anemo DPS

Faruzan Support


Provides continuous Hydro application, providing easy Swirls



Bennett provides a solid AoE heal, and an ATK buff to any who stand within that AoE whose health is over 70%. Additionally, he can generate a lot of energy particles when paired with Favonius Sword.

This low-cost build is remarkably-potent, thanks to the inclusion of secret six-star duo Bennett and Xingqiu. Though Xingqiu will only really see field time to reactivate his elemental skills, his presence will be felt through each of Heizou’s lightning-fast attacks – themselves bolstered by Faruzan’s burst.

As Heizou traditionally uses the Viridescent Venerer set, Faruzan can opt for a more Energy Recharge-heavy set if your current build doesn’t provide enough for her to use her burst on each rotation. Or, if you want to support your team with Furazan in a different capacity, just slap on Noblesse Oblige and make your enemies go boom.

And that’s the Genshin Impact Faruzan build you should be making the most of right now. Although she does have her fair share of energy issues, she’s easily the best Anemo support available right now if you can make her work.
