A new phase for Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss has begun in version 2.7, with players racing forward to clear floor 12. In order to get the 600 primogem bonus, fielding a good team is a must. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 5 best characters to use in Genshin Impact 2.7 Spiral Abyss.

The data comes from SpiralAbyss.org, a website specialized in collecting data for Genshin Impact's Spiral Abyss.

1. Bennett

Ever since Genshin Impact's release, no character has managed to push Bennett out of the "versatile all-purpose support". He can be splashed in pretty much every team. On top of his powerful heal, Bennett also provides a powerful ATK boost, which is useful for most characters. Despite being 4-star, Bennett surpassed pretty much all other characters in popularity.

Bennett Attack

His element is also a huge advantage. Bennett can trigger Pyro resonance alongside another Pyro, which yields a lot of free damage.

2. Zhongli

Zhongli, the former Geo Archon, has the strongest shield in the game, and that's probably not gonna change any time soon. He is popular in hard content like Spiral Abyss, as teams with Zhongli's backing would stay alive 100% of the time. His powerful Elemental Burst drops a meteor at enemies, dealing high damage and inflicting petrification.


Similar to Bennett, Zhongli is splashable in most teams, as the only thing you actually need him to do is to cast his shield. Characters who gain buff at low HP like Hu Tao benefit from his shield the most.

3. Xingqiu

Despite Yelan's release, Xingqiu is still the premier Hydro support in Genshin, due to the fact that many players already have him at high constellations. Before 2.7, he is the best Hydro support in the game, with the ability to apply Hydro continuously without much cooldown. This allows reaction teams like Vaporize, Freeze and Electro Charged to work smoothly.

Xingqiu Consistent Source Hydro

With Spiral Abyss allowing up to 2 teams, even Yelan users are putting Xingqiu in the other team that doesn't have Yelan. Overall, despite getting power creeped, Xingqiu is not going out of meta any time soon.

4. Xiangling

Xiangling or "the 4 star Pyro Archon" is a powerful Pyro character that most players have at high constellation. Her skill and burst are powerful Pyro applicators that can be used to support reaction teams.  She is no slouch in dealing damage, of course, as her Elemental Burst can snapshot. It is perfect to be used inside Bennett's AoE for the extra ATK.

Genshin Impact Xiangling

Similar to Bennett, she is also a common character to trigger Pyro resonance in teams.

5. Raiden Shogun

With the Electro element being somewhat underpowered, it is likely that miHoYo gave Raiden Shogun her busted skillset to make up for that. The Electro Archon is one of the most powerful characters in the game and has been part of the top 5 spiral abyss characters ever since her debut.

Electro Archon Raiden Shogun

She is part of the f2p friendly "national team" lineup of Raiden + Bennett + Xingqiu + Xiangling. All three supports are useful 4 stars and can beat Abyss floor 12 easily with Raiden's help.
