Although her Burst requires high energy cost, her Elemental Skill can cover it up, especially with the help of C1 and Sacrificial Fragment.
TartagliaTartaglia (Childe)5★HydroBow22254High raw damage but quite difficult to learn and play optimally. Elemental Skill can swap between ranged stance and melee stance, but high cooldown the longer it's used. Elemental Burst also depends on the two stance, with melee stance bringing out the best of him. Suprisingly great at group of enemies rather than single target.
ThomaThoma4★PyroPolearm35343Less synergy with other teams except Mono-Pyro and Burgeon. Elemental Skill deal Pyro damage and creates a decent shield, while Elemental Burst will deal AoE damage periodically which is perfect for Burgeon.

Elemental Burst group smaller enemies but pushes them far away, while ignoring the larger enemies.
TravelerTraveler (Dendro)5★DendroSword25225Great off-field Dendro applicant. Elemental Skill deals decent damage and energy, especially with low cooldown. Elemental Burst need lots of energy but worth the price with the long-lasting off-field Dendro application. Don't forget it can also be infused with Hydro or Electro, dealing decent damage to enemies in the AoE.
TravelerTraveler (Electro)5★ElectroSword45445Both Elemental Skill and Burst are average, providing decent amount of energy for teammates but deal low damage to enemies. One great passive talent comes from C2 (which everyone can get) that decrease enemies Electro RES after being hit by Falling Thunder.
TravelerTraveler (Geo)5★GeoSword44435Decent and spammable Elemental Skill and Burst. The former creates a Geo construct that often used to block enemies movement or attacks. Elemental Burst deals AoE Geo damage and Geo Construct that's better than Skill in term of blocking attacks. Passive skill from C1 increases party members' Crit Rate within the radius of Geo Construct AoE from Elemental Burst.
VentiVenti5★AnemoBow13122Extremely useful in end-game content like Spiral Abyss even until now with his Elemental Skill and Burst.

Exploration skill decrease gliding stamina for party members, in addition to Elemental Skill can creates an upcurrent for gliding.
XianglingXiangling4★PyroPolearm11155Average Elemental Skill, but devastating Elemental Burst that can be utilized in most elemental reaction teams.

Elemental Burst then comes in surrounding the active character with Pyronado that deals continuous Pyro damage to enemies.
XiaoXiao5★AnemoPolearm21551Rare Anemo DPS that deals tons of powerful and consistent AoE damage through Burst alone without any help of elemental reactions. Quite depended on another Anemo character in the team to help him generate energy for Elemental Burst that his Skill lacks. Exploration skill decreases climbing stamina consumption and his Elemental Skill can be used even mid-air.
XingqiuXingqiu4★HydroSword14115Top-tier Hydro support. Elemental Skill deals decent damage and tons of particles, in addition to generate Rain Swords that reduce the amount of damage taken and increase the character's resistance to reduction. Minor healing from when a Rain Sword is shattered or when its duration expires. Elemental Burst is his greatest skill, dealing Hydro damage off-field and allowing active character to trigger elemental reactions.
XinyanXinyan4★PyroClaymore45445Elemental Skill provides a decent shield that get better the more enemies she hit, and scales off her Defense which is clashing with her ascension stats that provides Attack. Elemental Burst deals both Physical and Pyro damage, but the damage itself is mediocre.
Yae MikoYae Miko5★ElectroCatalyst22154Great off-field Electro DPS. Elemental Skill has extremely low cooldown and can also be used to dodge enemies. The summoned Sesshou Sakura has quite a wide targeting area. She needs a LOT of energy so there is definitely a second Electro character as battery if planning to use her Elemental Burst. It is worth it in the end as her Burst deals huge tons of AoE Electro damage.
YanfeiYanfei4★PyroCatalyst33353Consistent and strong Pyro damage with high base attack for a 4-star character. As a catalyst, she can trigger elemental reaction easily, which helps in damage output. Normal and Charged Attacks are long-ranged and can lock on targets but Elemental Skill and Burst are short-ranged for enemies near her only. Exploration skill display the local specialty of Liyue on the mini-map.
YelanYelan5★HydroBow12111Powerful and consistent off-field Hydro application from her fairly high cost Elemental Burst, in addition to provide bonus damage to active character. Elemental Skill can take care of the energy gathering, especially when equipped with ER bow, also while dealing high damage to enemies. Easy to build as most her skills are scaled off her HP. Her Elemental Skill is extremely useful in exploration as it does not consume stamina.
Yoimiya PortraitYoimiya5★PyroBow22345Suffers from targeting issue, prone to interruption, and lack of AoE damage. But once she got some of that problems covered with a shielder and other off-field element applicant, she can melt enemies in single target situation. Her only support skill is increasing party members' Attack after using her Elemental Burst, also dealing AoE Pyro damage when other character hit the marked enemy, which is rarely utilized.
Yun JinYun Jin4★GeoPolearm35325Rare Geo unit that works extremely well with party that have various Elemental Types. While Elemental Skill does not provide any support, it allow her to recharge Elemental Burst where she shines the most. Her Burst will boost party members' Normal Attack Damage based on her current Defense. The bonus is further increased when the party contains at most 4 different Elemental Types.
ZhongliZhongli5★GeoPolearm13114Ultimate defense unit. Elemental Skill will create a formidable shield and Stone Seele that deals AoE Geo damage and can be chained with other Geo construct to largen the AoE. Furthermore, characters protected by the shield will decrease opponents' Elemental RES and Physical RES. Elemental Burst will deal solid damage in an AoE and petrifies enemies in place for a few seconds, in addition to having a low Burst cost.
FaruzanFaruzan4★AnemoBow35324Can only be utilized as Anemo supports with her rare Anemo damage buff and Anemo RES shred. Her gathering from Elemental Skill (Pressurized Collapse) is pretty weak and can only pull small and light-weighted enemies. The downside is she has massive ER problems because of high Energy Cost for Elemental Burst and extremely dependent on her Constellation (especially C6) to fix the problems.
Yaoyao4★DendroPolearm
MikaCryo
DehyaPyro
Alhaitham5★DendroSword
WandererWanderer5★AnemoCatalyst22551A complete DPS without any supporting skill. Since he's a catalyst, every attacks can provide consistent Anemo damage and Swirl. Elemental Skill has a short cooldown and dramatically increase his damage. However, he is quite dependent with shield because once hovering, he's very vulnerable to interruption and can be staggered easily once hit. Elemental Burst is not that big of a deal but has decent Energy Cost and can be spammed IF you have another Anemo character to generate more particles. Exploration skill is his hovering ability when using Elemental Skill.
