II. The Flute Genshin Impact Best Character

In addition to ascending the weapon, you also need to choose the best character to use the Flute. The Flute Genshin Impact character will receive the greatest benefit from its bonus stats. There are five characters who can use this 4-star sword efficiently and make it as powerful as a 5-star weapon.

  • Jean

Jean is a 5-star Anemo sword user. She can play as a DPS and healer in your team. Therefore, the ATK bonus of the Flute will help Jean a lot, especially when she faces big and dangerous bosses. Her normal attacks and charged attacks will be buffed a lot when Jean uses the Flute.

Jean can use the Flute to boost her healing skills.
  • Qiqi

Qiqi is also a 5-star sword user. This Cryo character is one of the best healers in Genshin Impact up to now. But her healing skills also scale with her attack like Jean. Therefore, you need to give her a decent ATK bonus. So, the Flute is a must-have sword for Qiqi. This 4-star sword is not very rare. Just try to get this sword for Jean and Qiqi.

  • Keqing

Keqing is a powerful Electro DPS in Genshin Impact. Her power and damage rely on normal and charged attacks. Therefore, the Flute with a decent ATK bonus is one of the best choices for Keqing. She will deal more damage to the target when using this beautiful sword.

The Flute is also one of the best swords for Keqing.
  • Ayaka

Kamisato Ayaka is a 5-star Cryo DPS from Inazuma. Her normal and charged attacks will be more powerful when she uses this 4-star sword. Though it's not as highly recommended as Mistsplitter Reforged and Primordial Jade Cutter, the Flute is still used more widely because it's easier to obtain from Weapon banners than 5-star weapons.

  • Kaeya

Apart from Jean, Qiqi, Keqing, and Ayaka, Genshin Impact players can also use the Flute for Kayea - a powerful Cryo sub-DPS. His damage also relies on normal and charged attacks. Especially, he will deal more ATK damage with normal and charged attacks during the burst phase. Therefore, the Flute can be a prior choice for this Cryo supporter.

Ayaka Qiqi
The Flute is a good sword for some Cryo characters.

III. Prototype Rancour Vs The Flute

You should use the Flute for characters who have fast attacks, such as Keqing, Qiqi, and Jean. Meanwhile, Prototype Rancour is a better choice for those who have long Elemental skills or burst cooldown.

Although both of them are 4-star swords, Prototype Rancour still has higher base damage than the Flute. But the gap is not so big. In addition, Prototype Rancour has a high Physical DMG Bonus that is good for Lumine or Aether.

In conclusion, the Flute Genshin Impact is a good weapon for DPS, such as Qiqi, Keqing, Jean, Ayaka, and Kaeya. It fits characters with fast attacks and gives them a decent ATK bonus.
