Some characters are not too hard to get in Genshin Impact, yet their usefulness is majestic compared to those with 5 stars. If you are looking for the best 4-star characters Genshin Impact to invest in, take some references from the list below:


Fischl Genshin
Fischl's toolkit is unique and not present in any of the 5-star Electro units currently available.

Ever since the release of Genshin Impact, Fischl has been a crucial Sub-DPS that players adore. She is relatively easy to use in tandem with other Electro characters, even at C0. But her damage output is not particularly impressive until she obtains some constellations.

At C6, Fischl gains the ability to summon Oz and is active on the field for a great portion of battles. This presents an edge since Oz generates energy particles for the team and effortlessly triggers Electro-related reactions, while also inflicting considerable damage.


She's good at crowd control.

Sucrose continues to be an outstanding support character in Genshin Impact. With the release of Sumeru, she becomes even more highly sought-after thanks to her ability to tremendously boost her team's Elemental Mastery.

The amount of EM that Sucrose offers her team is nearly as impressive as that of Nahida, the Dendro Archon. Furthermore, Sucrose can perform some of the essential tasks that are typically assigned to 5-star Anemo supports like Venti and Kazuha.

Sucrose can continually activate the Swirl reaction even while off the field, and reduce enemies' resistance to the Element she reacts with.


Xiangling Genshin
The chef has a deadly Pyronado.

Xiangling is one of the best 4-star Genshin Impact characters due to her ability to deal off-field damage and apply Pyro effects.

While other characters like Thoma and Dehya were expected to fill her role, Xiangling remains a cut above the rest. One of the primary reasons for Xiangling's dominance is her short Internal Cooldown (ICD) and versatility to adapt to different playstyles.

Xiangling can perform effectively with various stats, including ATK, Pyro DMG, Elemental Mastery, Energy Recharge, and CRIT.

At C4, she can continuously spin her Pyronado, allowing the active character to benefit from the Pyro applications and damage.


Genshin Impact Xingqiu
Xingqiu is among the strongest 4-star characters in Genshin Impact right now.

He can support Pyro DPS characters like Hu Tao to trigger Vaporize. Meanwhile, Xingqiu also helps Electro units like Cyno to activate Electro-charged attacks and has one of the core elements needed for Bloom teams.

Being a 4-star character who can easily apply Hydro like no other, he is a must-have for meta slaves.

There was an inside joke saying that there’s not enough Xingqius in the game since he fits in most team compositions. But now, there's Yelan whose kit is almost identical to Xingqiu. The crazy part is that at C6, Xingqiu's DMG output is comparable to hers, in addition to every bonus utility he offers.


The unlucky boy further boosts the team's ATK by a great percentage and is in many Spiral Abyss teams.

Bennett stands out as a formidable support unit that only needs the first Constellation to achieve his potential. What sets Bennett apart is his capability to heal the active characters while significantly increasing their damage output, coupled with his Pyro vision.

Being a Pyro user in Genshin Impact, Bennett can collaborate with another unit to activate the Pyro Resonance, which further boosts the team's ATK by 25%.
