A lot of players have got Shikanoin Heizou from Kazuha and Klee's banners. But many of them are still making these mistakes when using this new character. Check them out to avoid these mistakes.

Heizou Tips And Skills
Check out top must-avoid mistakes when using Heizou.

#1. Ignore His Best Equipment

You should use the best weapon and artifact set for Heizou. This 4-star character is weaker than 5-star characters in Genshin Impact. Therefore, you should give him enough buffs by using the correct weapon and artifact set for him, including:

  • Best artifact set: 4 pieces of Viridescent Venerer;
  • Best weapon: Skyward Atlas.

These artifacts and weapons will give Heizou a significant buff to make Heizou strong enough to play the main DPS role.

#2. Use Heizou As Sub-DPS

The best role of Heizou is the Swirl Main DPS fighter. With the best weapon, artifact set, C6, and highest level unlocked, this 4-star character can play as the main CRIT and Swirl DPS in your team, especially your Anemo team with Sucrose, Kazuha, and Venti.

It's useless to use Heizou as a sub-DPS or supporter because he cannot provide any buffs for other characters in his team.

#3. Underestimate His Swirl Skill

Heizou's best skill is Swirl which deals high damage to enemies and has other physical effects. If you don't know how to use this skill, you cannot optimize the power of this 4-star Anemo DPS. Here're two tips to use Heizou's Swirl correctly.

  • Use the Swirl ability in fighting against the crowd because his element rebound among enemies in a group. It's more useful to use this skill against more than one enemy.
  • Don't use his Swirl ability on a Hydro-affected enemy because its effectiveness decreases in this case.
Use Swirl Skill
Build his Swirl Skill to use him in his best role.

#4. Lack Of Elemental Applicators

You need to use adequate Elemental applications to boost his Swirl ability. It means that you should use off-field sub-DPS or supporters for Heizou like Yelan, Xingqiu, and Xiangling. Their elemental skills and bursts still apply their elements to enemies while they are not on the field.

Use the right supporter. 

#5. Solely Focus On Energy Recharge

Many players are still focusing solely on building the Energy Recharge of Heizou. His elemental skills and bursts do not require many energy points to be fully recharged. Therefore, it's unnecessary to build his energy recharge. Instead, you should build his Elemental Mastery, CRIT Rate/CRIT DMG, Anemo DMG, and ATK.

Swirl Skill
You shouldn't solely focus on his Energy Recharge.

#6. Ignore Declension Stack

Heizou can gain Declension Stack from his Ascension Passive to increase the Detective’s damage. You can collect up to four Stacks of Declension at a time when you hold the Skill. After getting enough stack, Heizou can deal extra Conviction damage in the next skill. It's more useful when Heizou is at a high level.
