Ganyu Quick TL;DR Team Comp Guide

Ganyu (officially recognized as cocogoat by miHoYo)

She practically shoots a tactical nuke for a charged shot…

Element: Cryo

Weapon: Bow

Pros:

Low E CDAverage Q CDInsanely easy to play
Has crazy scaling/multipliersEasy to gear + massive AoECan consistently apply cryo
Able to buff herself with QExtremely easy to stack CRIT%CRIT DMG as hidden stat

Cons:

Shines best with an EM compPractically non-existent ERStruggles against enemies with shields
Extremely squishyBuffs from weapons/sets/passives can be conditional

PSA #1: Ganyu is straightforward and hits like a truck. Having a shielder can be nice, as getting hitting will take you out from aim mode, but her E + additional CC also works. Her team should compliment her damage with EM as much as possible!

Who to take (alternatives explained below!):

Sucrose
  • The best EM mule in the game. Provides an overkill amount of EM to Ganyu, allowing reactions to hit much harder
  • Has a great AoE CC that groups enemies + provides decent amount of energy
  • Can be geared with TTDS to gain free 48% ATK buff + Viridescent to boost damage
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH VENTI/JEAN OR ANEMO MC TO HELP GROUP/PUSH AWAY ENEMIES
Xiangling
  • Guoba does a decent job applying pyro proc’s everywhere + A4 passive provides a free 10% ATK buff you can pick up
  • Xianling Q is perfect to synergize with Ganyu’s Q + charged shots, as well as stagger enemies hit by it
  • Pyro can deal with most wooden/ice shields, allowing Ganyu’s charged shots to deal damage
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH XINGQIU/MONA OR KLEE IF YOU WANT ANOTHER SUB DPS TO KEEP DPS UP
Bennett
  • Can spam E to give energy + apply pyro everywhere
  • Bennett Q works great in tandem with Ganyu Q, as it will constantly proc melt to enemies in both fields
  • Amazing burst healing + ATK buff is great for helping keep Ganyu healthy and doing more damage
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH QIQI OR DIONA IF YOU HAVE C6 FOR MORE EM DAMAGE + CRYO RESONANCE

PSA #2: This is the comp I currently run with my Ganyu, as Sucrose provides the EM + TTDS and Xiangling + Bennett gives pyro resonance for the free ATK buff. With melt proc’d, I consistently hit 33K+ per charged shot bloom and pretty easy to play/setup!

Great flex slot alternatives:

  • Xingqiu – Ironically, the shield provided from E or Q is great with dealing with nearby enemies, as they’ll apply wet to themselves, which you can freeze with Ganyu to kite
  • Diona – Provides a strong shield, while also giving good energy regen to Ganyu. If you have C6 Diona, the additional EM will be insanely helpful
  • Anemo MC – Bootleg, but still works great! Just E to gather enemies, then Q them away. While enemies are in the tornado, shoot it with charged shots to deal massive damage
  • Venti – Amazing energy battery + Q is great for grouping. Good tip: make sure if you aren’t confident you can hit enemies bouncing around in the tornado, just aim at the ground below them. The bloom will still hit them in the air
  • Mona – Another taunt is always helpful + applies wet to enemies. Mona Q actually hits really hard with Ganyu’s charged shot as well

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK QUESTIONS BELOW! I’ll try my best to respond as I know some players may not have ANY of the characters mentioned

Hope this helped. Bye.
