Razor Quick TL;DR Team Comp Guide

Razor (he is a good boy, possibly even best boy)

Seriously… where are his parents?

Element: Electro

Weapon: Claymore

Pros:

Consistent electro procExtremely low E CDVery low Q CD
Has Phys DMG% as hidden statHigh attack speed for claymoreSuperconduct is OP
High damage scalingVery easy to gear/playBest of both electro and phys worlds

Cons:

Cryo user is essentialHigh energy on Q (x)Lacks AoE

PSA #1: Cons are easily fixable, making Razor one of the easiest DPS to run currently. His lack of energy regen and AoE can be practically disregarded, as his team can fill those gaps

Who to take (alternatives explained below!):

Fischl
  • Electro resonance provides much needed energy regen
  • Oz procs electro, generates energy, and does decent damage consistently
  • Can be run as a sub/ranged DPS
  • CAN REPLACE WITH LISA OR BEIDOU AS HER Q FELT REALLY GOOD TO USE WITH RAZOR
Xingqiu
  • Can cause electro-charged for CC’ing enemies and doing chain electro damage
  • Xingqiu Q feels absolutely amazing with Razor’s Q
  • Xingqiu E helps negate punishment while you’re ramming your face in with Razor
  • CAN REPLACE WITH MONA, VENTI, OR SUCROSE IF YOU WANT GROUPING AOE CC
Diona
  • Can cause superconduct to help boost physical damage output
  • Diona E shield procs both cryo and helps keep Razor safe
  • Diona Q patches up boo boo’s and also provides a consistent cryo AoE circle on the ground
  • CAN REPLACE WITH QIQI OR KAEYA IF YOU’RE F2P/RUNNING XINGQIU ALREADY

PSA #2: If you’re stuck between Sucrose and Venti, take Sucrose. While Venti’s Q is superior at grouping, Razor for some reason struggles to reach enemies in the vortex (even in Q form). A fun “meme” comp was Beidou – Xingqiu – Diona, as you’re practically unkillable with the consistent damage reduction, healing, and shielding

Great flex slot alternatives:

  • Beidou – Can be swapped to E nuke enemies, and her Q is a great source of constant electro proc’s (damage reduction is also nice!)
  • Xinyan – A4 passive increases Phys DMG, which is essential for Razor. Overloaded can be annoying, but dashing will close the gap. Run as burst DPS
  • Venti/Sucrose – Both are great as EM mules + AoE CC/grouping. Sucrose is preferable over Venti here since she can take TTDS + extremely easy to gear
  • Albedo – Build around his E, as it’s a great additional source of DPS + great at breaking geo shields
  • Kaeya – Insanely good Cryo proc’s since you can spam his E, and Kaeya Q can consistently proc superconduct with Razor Q

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.

I spend too much time filling out spreadsheets for incoherent data, but at least I can turn them into guides :P

    Just keep in mind that Chongyun’s E does conflict with Razor’s damage, since it’ll enchant his normal attacks to do cryo DMG rather than phys DMG. This is bad cause then you won’t be able to really benefit from superconduct (which makes enemies take more phys DMG).

    You can however run Chongyun as a burst DPS in that comp, which pretty much negates the issue since you won’t really be using Chong’s E (or at all). Kaeya is just a better fit because he’s cheap to build + has extremely low CD’s — but if you really want to force Chongyun you can!

    Hi!
    my team consists of razor as a main dps, rosaria ( sub dps ) and bennett ( support ), idk who else to take ?? 😩

      You can take either Fischl for more damage as an enabler, or if you find yourself taking a lot of damage (or needing to heal frequently) take a shielder like Diona/Zhongli.

    Welpppppp, What if I don’t have Xingqiu nor Xingqiu’s substitutes ? XD

    • 2board says:

      So Xingqiu is basically kind of the staple for most DPS that normal attack a lot. But, if you don’t have him you still have other options like Fishcl, Kaeya, and Xiangling. In terms of Hydro supports, Mona and Barbara actually work very well. Barbara isn’t exactly the greatest, since her E can get you CC stunned, but it’s still better than nothing if you really want to take hydro!

    Does Bennett work too? Thank you for answering! 😀

    I currently run kazuha + Bennet + Razor(C4) + Rosaria(C1), I am building my fischl to replace kazuha. For healers or shielders I only have Jean, Bennet, Barbara and Noelle and also the qiqi I got while pulling Ayaka…
    So my question is should I replace Bennet with qiqi or no ?
