While a DPS in Genshin Impact makes it easier for you to win the game, a healer is the one that makes it harder to lose. In a word, healers like Noelle and the Acting Grand Master Jean will gain you an edge and make a difference between living and dying.

With that being said, knowing how to use these characters is all fans’ interest. Have a look at the Genshin Impact healers tier list of Gurugamer.com and you’ll be good to go.

Roles of Healers in Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact Healers are meant to back up their teammates with healing abilities. They usually have weak damage and support against enemies.

These characters own the most skilled healing potential while their builds are meant to further enhance the damage.

Also, a team full of Healers can counteract you, it is recommended that you put at least one support and one DPS to assist them. The synergy between the characters is also a must to make the best use of them.

Genshin Impact Healers tier list: Ranked

Genshin Impact healing characters currently have 18 names. Here’s their tier and how they are ranked as the best healer Genshin Impact until update 4.3.

18. Gorou

Albedo Zhongli Itto Gorou
Gorou's healing ability has yet been highly appreciated.

Although not commonly recognized as a healer, Gorou possesses healing abilities that are accessible only through his constellations.

Specifically, activating Gorou's C4 constellation will provide active characters within the area of effect with a healing effect every 1.5 seconds based on 50% of Gorou's DEF when his Elemental Burst is in either the "Impregnable" or "Crunch" states.

However, his healing ability is restricted by the fact that it requires at least two Geo characters in the party and it is locked behind a late constellation.

17. Dori

Dori Genshin Impact
Genshin Impact healers ranked: Dori.

Instead of healing, Dori's biggest strength is her role as ER support. This means users can utilize her alongside any DPS unit that needs mid to high Energy Recharge.

Her single-target healing is, in fact, quite decent. You should prioritize leveling up her Burst and Skill while skipping her Attack talent.

16. Sayu

Sayu is petite yet she can be a decent healer.

The little girl has a decent healing ability while the consistent Anemo procs might be her greatest strength. With EM being her hidden stat, she can serve as a battery for quite a few characters.

Besides, her kit's decent AoE can generate a lot of particles and energy. This makes Sayu much easier to play and gear compared to other supports.

15. Zhongli

Can Zhongli heal in Genshin Impact?

Zhongli Genshin
Yes, Zhongli can heal, but there's a catch.

Being a strong DPS, the Geo Archon is, in fact, quite underwhelming when it comes to healing. It's way until his C6 that players can unlock his minor healing effect. Although this makes Zhongli a special character, it does not stand out that much, especially in this ranking.

The 5-star unit still shines the best being the most powerful shielder in the game right now.

14. Mika

Genshin Impact Mika Talent
The character was introduced in version 3.5.

With his C1, Mika can heal the team more frequently and with shorter intervals between healing. It's important to note that his healing ability scales with HP, so it's recommended to prioritize this stat when building him.

When Mika hits enemies with his Normal attacks, he can heal the entire party.

13. Charlotte

Charlotte Best Build Artifacts Weapons Teams
Charlotte healer build in Genshin Impact.

Charlotte joined the healer line in Genshin Impact version 4.2. However, her existence as a Cryo healer is quite frowned upon. The reason is before her, some characters of the same category had already won hearts: Diona, Mika, Qiqi.

Although several players hoped for the better when she arrived, it's a shame that she still ends up being underappreciated.

Charlotte can heal any active character in her Burst AoE while dealing DMG to nearby opponents. However, the size of this area of effect is very limited.

12. Noelle

Knight-wannabe Noelle.

Noelle plays the part of a defensive Healer, and this makes her stand out amidst the small number of healers in Genshin Impact. Qiqi has pure healing capability, Jean reigns supreme when it comes to offensive prowess.

For starters, both Jean and Qiqi place very close to Noelle in whole usefulness. However, Noelle is the most challenging to take down.

She is excellent with the first constellation. Moreover, the character’s Elemental Skill – Breastplate, can give rise to a protective stone shield which will deal Geo damage to her enemies.

The scales of damage absorption depend on her defense. Her attack will also most likely regenerate HP for every character in the party.

11. Chevreuse

Chevreuse Kit Is Useful
Chevreuse kit is useful, but not that versatile.

Chevreuse is a new entry since update 4.3. Being an HP-scaling healer whose kit revolves around healing and buffing Overload reaction, she is very welcome in an Overloaded team comp.

But this is also her downside as her role is limited to only these teams. She is less versatile than those who are in top 5 of this list.

10. Furina

Is Furina good for healing? Can Furina be a good healer?

Furina Is The Meta Character
Despite being the META character now, Furina might not be the best healer in Genshin Impact.

Furina is the Hydro Archon whose appearance was anticipated way before the official entry. As a 5-star Hydro character, she is sometimes put on a comparison with Kokomi. According to players' observation, Furina's healing:

  • Has 100% uptime due to infinite skill
  • Has a range similar to Nahida's burst, which can cover the whole battlefield
  • Can consistently heal teamwide (in Co-op mode)

Her healing is not useless as it can synergize with her buffing mechanics due to draining on her attack skill. Hence, she can maintain consistent HP fluctuation.

But overall, Furina's healing is more like a nice overworld addition as it's quite irrelevant in normal rotations. If anything, Furina is an amazing support for DPS Kokomi.

9. Qiqi

She tops when it comes to sheer healing skills so far and it’s her primary set as a character.

Qiqi in Genshin Impact can fire some serious Cryo damage to opponents when is off the field, gaining her a considerable edge. As a 5-star unit, she is hard to get and is luck-based. She is currently only available in Character Event banners.

Both of her Elemental Skill and Burst, Adeptus Art: Herald of Frost and Preserver of Fortune can offer passive healing. It means you can easily activate her ability and change to another character.

However, a downside she has is the longer time of cooldown compared to that of other healers.

8. Jean

Genshin Impact Jean

Genshin Impact Jean is a multi-talented character who can work as a DPS and the main healer.

Her Dandelion Breeze can generate a Dandelion Field to do Anemo damage and launch enemies. She also recreates a massive amount of health for all team members.

When you use Jean, the smart strategy is to focus on attack stats as well as energy recharge boosts. It will assemble more frequent healing from her burst.

7. Kuki Shinobu

Kuki Shinobu Genshin Impact 2 7
Sidekick of Arataki Itto and Deputy Leader of the Arataki Gang.

Her damage and healing abilities are based on her HP, making her easier to build for players. Unlike some characters, she does not need to be on the field to be effective.

Kuki Shinobu is ideal for pure Electro and Taser teams because she can consistently apply Electro damage while off-field.

6. Barbara

In spite of her free status, her skill is the first among those who can be comfortably used as the main healer.

Barbara can offer a revive when her cap constellations are available.

Her attacks, Let the Show Begin, can summon water drops that deal Hydro damage to foes. Her burst – Shining Miracle, and the regular attacks, may also heal every part member depending on the maximum health she has.

Tips: You should concentrate on two of her stats, HP and Attack. Making use of some healing bonus gear can even help further.

5. Yaoyao

Yaoyao Is Lovely
An adorable healer.

Yaoyao's abilities make her a versatile healer both in combat and outside of it by applying Dendro effects. Players can optimize her skills by placing her White Jade Radishes strategically for optimal Dendro application.

This could make her a top choice for teams focused on Dendro Reactions in Genshin Impact.

4. Diona

Diona is appreciated for her healing properties.

Her only benefit is that she can heal others within a period. However, the bartender from Cat’s Tail indeed makes a decent support healer or substitute healer.

Her charged attacks, Kätzklein Style, can apply Cryo status which makes her a good initiator for Superconduct and Melt reactions.

3. Baizhu

Baizhus Healing And Shield
Baizhu's healing and shield made him very appealing.

Baizhu is a 5-star Dendro catalyst character who made an entrance in update 3.6. For those unknown, his kit revolves around HP as both his healing and buffs scales from HP.

Baizhu's skills focus on healing and shielding the team while also consistently applying Dendro to enemies. For those unknown, he was considered one of the best characters for Spiral Abyss defeat not long after his first banner.

But one thing to consider is his Dendro application is not too flabbergasting. You should solely build him as a healer as being a support might not be his best suit.

2. Bennett

Bennett is one of the strongest healing units.

While it might seem peculiar for a four-star to rank higher than other 5-star units, Bennett has a lot to offer and he is no doubt the best healer Genshin Impact.

Bennett’s Elemental Burst, Fantastic Voyage, can increase the player’s attack in a certain range. Also, he can do the healing while simultaneously offering strong support. Learn about Bennett's best build to make the most of his powers.

1. Kokomi

Kokomi used to be the target of ridicule due to her low crit chance debuff. But as time passes by, she is now considered amongst the best healers in the game.

Kokomi can also be a great sub-DPS with the right build.

Her Elemental Skill, the Jellyfish, can constantly heal team members while also applying Hydro to enemies. Furthermore, this skill has amazing uptime thanks to its duration refreshing after Kokomi uses her Burst. Attacks during Kokomi's Burst also regenerate players' HP.

Post the release of Dendro, Kokomi becomes even more useful, especially in Bloom teams. Along with Dendro units like Alhaitham, Tighnari, or Nahida, she can create many powerful Dendro cores.
