A brand new character is now available in Genshin Impact and this is the information you need.
The All-New Shikanoin Heizou is a brand-new character added with Genshin Impact update 2.8, which also added the Phantasmal Conch event.
Heizou is an Anemo character – there isn’t a character with the upcoming Dendro element yet – who uses Catalyst weapons.
In this guide, we’re going to break down the best weapon, gear, and team builds that Heizou can be used in to help you excel in your Genshin Impact battles.
Heizou’s best weapon – Genshin Impact
If you want to use Heizou to the best of his ability, aim for the five-star rare catalysts that suit his playstyle:
- Skyward Atlas – Increases attack value and increases elemental damage.
- Lost prayers to the holy winds – Increases elemental damage and stacks in addition to movement buff.
If you don’t have access to those rare five-star catalysts, there are a few decent four-star options too:
- Solar Pearl – Increases attack damage and special abilities.
- The Wisith – Randomly increases Attack, Elemental Damage, or Elemental Mastery.
- Mappa mare – Increases elemental damage when using elemental reactions.
Heizou best artifacts – Genshin Impact
Arguably the best artifact set for Heizou is Vibrant veneer, which increases Anemo damage and can reduce enemy resistance to the elements you use. This is perfect for Heizou’s playstyle, but difficult to achieve.
If you don’t have a Viridescent Veneer available, these more common artifact sets also work well:
- Echoes of an offering
- Shimenawa’s memory
Heizou best teams – Genshin Impact
Heizou is a natural DPS role and can easily become the main DPS on your team. We have an ideal team that we recommend:
- Heizou (DPS)
- Xingqiu (Sub DPS)
- fish (Sub DPS)
- bennett (Support)
This team consists of three DPS characters with which you can deal a lot of damage and invoke elemental reactions. Heizou’s Swirl ability works well with this composition.
- Heizou (DPS)
- Yelan/kokomi/Xiangling (Sub DPS)
- raiding/Miko (Sub DPS)
- jean/barbara (Support)
This build is a bit more variable for those who may not have the perfect characters available.
If you’re missing the characters we listed in the first team, you can replace them with these other characters and still have an incredibly strong setup.
