While Genshin Impact is one of the more complicated RPGs on mobile, it still follows the same rule that most RPGs have: the higher the DPS, the better. Because of this, DPS is pretty much the universal measurement to see if a character is worth using or not. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 6 Genshin Impact best DPS characters in update 2.5.

1. Genshin Impact best DPS - Ganyu

Not many characters in Genshin can compare to Ganyu in the ranged damage department. She can continuously dish out a great amount of AOE damage using Frostflake arrows. With her high base Crit damage and multiple AoE skills, she can deal excellent damage even at C0. This is the reason Ganyu is #1 instead of the other Genshin best DPS on this list.

Ganyu Ulti
Her Elemental Burst, Celestial Shower is the ultimate skill that causes huge damage to enemies in an AOE.

Ganyu is also an excellent sub-DPS as well. Her Elemental Burst packs some serious damage and has great uptime - Ganyu can keep it up 100% during combat, apply Cyro endlessly to foes. This ability is the reason Ganyu is amongst the best DPS in Genshin Impact.

Amos' bow is the best weapon for DPS Ganyu. It increases Normal Attack and Charged Attack DMG by 12%. Furthermore, after a Normal or Charged Attack is fired, DMG dealt increases by a further 8% every 0.1 seconds the arrow is in the air for up to 5 times.

2. Ayaka

Ayaka rivals Ganyu in the Cryo DPS department. She can have 100% ice infusion on her sword, which works great in Cryo builds. Players can solely focus on Crit Damage in a Freeze comp, as Ayaka would be able to get a free 55% crit rate with Cryo Resonance and the Blizzard Strayer set.

The best sword for Ayaka is the Mistsplitter Reforged. She can also use the Primordial Jade Cutter or the Black Sword.

One of the best features of Ayaka is her ability to spread Cryo fast through her dash, normal attacks and skills.

3. Eula

Eula is a DPS fighter whose greatest strength is her powerful burst and physical damage potential. She is undoubtedly one of the best Genshin Impact characters, an S-tier damage-dealer who caters to that classic Diluc playstyle. With the right build, she's one of Genshin Impact best DPS characters.

Genshin Impact Eula
Eula can be built around her physical DPS, with focus on her attacks and burst.

As her Elemental Burst deal Phys damage, it is best to build Eula around Physical damage. Her Cryo Vision grants access to the Superconduct elemental reaction, which amplifies her physical damage even further.

It should come as no surprise that the best weapon for Eula as the main DPS is her signature claymore, Song of Broken Pines. It allows Eula to stack Sigils with her normal and charged attacks, which are consumed to gain a buff state.

4. Hu Tao

Hu Tao is one of the strongest damage dealers in Genshin Impact. She excels at single target damage, especially when animation canceling her Charged Attack and triggering Melt and Vaporize. It is a bit tricky to get the highest DPS out of her, as players need to keep her below 50% at all times.

Hu Tao
Hu Tao benefits from having teammates who can shield her instead of heal.

She gets a huge power spike at C1, gaining a new passive that remove the Stamina cost of her Charge Attacks. The best weapon to use on her is the Staff of Homa.

5. Xiao

Xiao is an Anemo DPS that excels at dealing high AoE damage with his plunge attacks within the radius of his Elemental Burst. He is fairly f2p friendly, as his kit allows him to deal massive damage without constellations unlocked.

Furthermore, he is about to get a new artifact set called Vermillion Hereafter in 2.6, with skills designed solely for his kit. With the set, Xiao can easily get to the SS tier.

Best Build For Xiao Genshin
Xiao is going to be super good after his upcoming artifact sets are released.

The best weapon for Xiao is the Primordial Jade Winged-Spear, which allows him to gain a stackable ATK boost.

6. Itto

Being one of the most underrated characters in Genshin Impact, Itto can only work in a Geo team. However, if you have the right teammates to accompany him, the character becomes an unstoppable force amongst Genshin Impact best DPS. Itto has a high base CRIT Rate, which makes his builds much easier.

Itto Weapon
Itto requires a team to play around his strength instead of carrying the team by himself.

His abilities work really well together, with Elemental Skill taunting enemies and Elemental Burst increasing overall DPS. Itto mainly deals damage using his Charged attacks, which is enhanced by Superstrength stacks from Normal attacks and Elemental Skill.

As he has a high energy cost Burst and requires setup for his Charged attacks, players need to have at least Gorou to bring out his full potential. Albedo or Zhongli are also good additions.

The best weapon for Itto is the Redhorn Stonethresher, which increases DEF alongside Normal and Charged Attack DMG.
