Traveler (Anemo) Quick TL;DR Support Build Guide
PSA #1: A good Support is always willing to take one for the team. Even if your DPS is messy, it’s their job to pick up the pieces.
PSA #2: Both Traveler’s (Anemo) abilities scale off ATK. Even though they “succ” more than the other anemo characters, at least they can fulfill their role as a glorified vacuum cleaner
IMPORTANT TIP: It is extremely recommended that you hold E, as it will absorb and spread any elemental procs nearby/on the enemies
KEEP IN MIND that you are stationary when using E — this makes you a prime target to getting absolutely slapped, so make sure you don’t get interrupted
Holding E isn’t very punishing, as it has a low CD and doesn’t last too long. It will still allow you to do your team rotation without issue
It is highly recommended to apply an element PRIOR to using Q to ensure that you are able to proc swirl with the element you want. Against element-infused enemies, it becomes much more difficult, but there’s still a brief window to replicate it!
IMPORTANT TIP: DO NOT WASTE TIME TRYING TO DO A FULL NORMAL ATTACK COMBO. As a support, your job is to quickly proc/use your abilities then swap back to your DPS
Talent Leveling Order: E > Q > Normal
WEAPON #1 (Recommended for Dyson quality suction): Festering Desire
How do I get it D: ? – Dragonspire Storyline
Favonius Sword or even Iron Sting are great alternatives if you’re using Festering Desire on another support. Sacrificial isn’t as warranted, as the E CD is already extremely low
WEAPON #2 (Recommended for early breeze): Harbinger of Dawn
How do I get it D: ? – You get one from Kaeya, but the rest gacha
The only downside to Harbinger of Dawn for anemo Traveler is that you’re stationary when using E. This makes you extremely prone to taking damage, resulting in HoD’s buff doing nothing. It is HIGHLY recommended to take a shielder or healer when using HoD!
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for hurricanes): Viridescent Venerer
How do I get it D: ? – Valley of Remembrance Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run)
There is no better alternative. Noblesse is okay, but there are other supports/healers that are better suited for it. Viridescent is especially crucial if anemo Traveler is your only anemo character!
ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for early morning gusts): Instructor
How do I get it D: ? – Confront Stormterror Domain (60 Resin per run), or go steal some chests
PSA #3: You can run The Exile if you’re having troubles with energy recharge, or honestly any 18% ATK+ 2-sets if you just want more slappage.
|ATK%||Anemo DMG%||CRIT% or CRIT DMG|
Substats: CRIT% > CRIT DMG > ATK > EM
If you want other characters let me know. Hope this helped. Bye.
