2. How to use Kazuha effectively?

Kazuha is a powerful Anemo sub DPS that focuses on Elemental Mastery damage via Swirls.

Crowd control with Chihayaburu

Kazuha can pull enemies and objects towards his position when using Chihayaburu, which you can use for crowd control. Afterward, players can drop down with a Plunging attack, dealing extra Anemo damage. The attack can deal different Elemental DMG when another Element is present.

Use Elemental Burst for continuous Anemo damage

Kazuha's Elemental Burst, Kazuha Slash, expands into a wide AoE and deals continuous Anemo DMG to enemies inside. Positioning for this skill is really easy as its AoE is very big.

Whatever Element reacts with Kazuha's Burst first will set the Anemo Swirl DMG within the AoE. Depending on the Element, his burst would also change color. Kazuha's ability should be used first in a combo in order to boost other characters' damage. Together with the Viridescent Venerer, Kazuha will be able to provide Buff and debuff for the team.

3. Best Genshin Impact Kazuha build

Overall, Kazuha works best as a support/crowd control, allowing the team to deal massive elemental damage. With high enough investment/good weapon/good artifact, he can also serve as a decent sub-DPS.

Kazuha's Anemo Support Build

Best Weapon

  • Freedom-Sworn: This is a support weapon that increases Kazuha's Elemental Mastery, which in turn increases the value of his damage buff. The weapon also give an extra ATK boost for Kazuha's teammate while allowing him to stay off-field.

Alternate weapons

  • Iron Sting: The best 4-star weapon for a support Kazuha, increasing his Elemental Mastery.
  • Sacrificial Sword: Allowing Kazuha to use his CC more often while giving him some Energy Regeneration.
  • Favonius Sword: Good weapon that allows Kazuha to use his Burst more consistently.

Best Artifact

  • Viridescent Venerer x4: This is the best artifact for Kazuha as it provides even more Elemental Damage with Swirl RES reduction.
  • Noblesse Oblige x4: Players can use this as a temporary artifact if you do not have a decent Viridescent Venerer set yet.

Kazuha's Sub DPS Build

Best Weapon

  • Primordial Jade Cutter: The best weapon for Kazuha sub-DPS build, providing good stats and damage.

Alternate weapons

  • Mistsplitter Reforged: Good alternative weapon - can become the BIS weapon if Kazuha is C6.
  • The Black Sword: Increasing Kazuha's overall attack damage.
  • Iron Sting: Good budget weapon for Sub-DPS Kazuha.

Best Artifact

  • Viridescent Venerer x2 + Gladiator's Finale x2: Increase Kazuha's ATK and Anemo damage. This build does not really need the 4 piece bonus of Venerer.

Recommended Artifact Sub stats

Overall, players just need to get as much Elemental Mastery on Kazuha as possible. Some Energy Recharge is needed for Kazuha to use his Burst more consistently. Outside of that, just focus on the usual ATK% and crits.

4. Kazuha Constellations and Talent Priority

Constellations

Kazuha Constellations

While Kazuha can work regardless of constellations, getting him to C2 is a must. This is why Kazuha's rerun banners are always one of the most wanted. Coincidentally, his C1 is also good:

  • C1: Increases the amount of times Kazuha's Elemental Skill can be used, which lessens Kazuha's Energy Recharge requirements.
  • C2: Kazuha's 2nd constellation is pretty much a meta-defining passive. It provides an absurd amount of Elemental Mastery to party members and Kazuha, on top of the damage bonus from Kazuha's 2nd passive.

If players have a lot of money to spend on Genshin Impact, Kazuha's C6 turns him into a powerful DPS character, rivaling the top DPS in the game. It infuses Kazuha's attack with Anemo.

Talent Priority

Kazuha is a support character first and foremost, so players need to max his Elemental Burst and Skill first. His Attack talent can be left for later.

5. What are the best teams for Kazuha?

Any team that deal Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro dmg

As Kazuha is an Anemo character who boosts elemental damage and can crowd control, he pretty much fits in nearly all teams dealing Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro dmg. From Hu Tao + Yelan to Childe + Xiangling, Kazuha can support pretty much all lineup.

Kazuha can become the core of a team upon reaching C6, but even then, he does not require any specific support.

Which team should not use Kazuha?

Overall, all teams that do not use the above 4 elements should not use Kazuha at all. For example, if you are running a Physical team with Eula or a pure GEO team with Itto, Kazuha would not have a place in those lineups.
