Zhongli Quick TL;DR Team Comp Guide

Zhongli (HE WILL HAVE ORDER)

Love him, hate him. The one thing you have to agree with is he looks CLEAN AF

Element: Geo

Weapon: Polearm

Pros:

Low E CDLow Q CDHas massive AoE
Petrification CC goes through shields/armorExtremely easy to gear/playNot constellation dependent
Great at breaking Geo shieldsPractically 100% crystallize/shields uptimeE can block stuff 🙂

Cons:

Poor energy regenQ has petrifrication bugNon-Geo shields are bane
Constellations are supportiveAnother Geo user helps A LOT

PSA #1: DPS Zhongli plays like Xiangling, but can afford more aggression due to shields and CC. His only real cons are his lack of ER for himself and struggle with elemental shields

Who to take (alternatives explained below!):

Ningguang
  • Provides Geo resonance for free 15% ATK DMG buff
  • Ning E not only buffs Geo DMG, but also resonates with Zhongli E
  • Ning can be a sub DPS, provide Geo energy regen, and also prolong crystallize generation
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH NOELLE OR GEO MC FOR BOTH SUB DPS SLOT AND SYNERGY WITH E
Fischl
  • Oz constantly poops out energy particles
  • Necessary for helping proc superconduct
  • A great source of consistent damage with both her E and Q
  • CAN REPLACE WITH XIANGLING OR XINYAN FOR SHIELDING + PYRO RESONANCE
Diona
  • Diona E is great energy regen and also prolongs shield uptime
  • Necessary for helping proc superconduct
  • Q healing can be optimal, since Zhongli is in their face anyways
  • CAN REPLACE WITH QIQI OR BENNETT IF YOU WANT PYRO RESONANCE

PSA #2: Ning – Fischl – Diona is the comp I run currently for Phys DMG% Zhongli. It feels really clean, simple, and easy to play. You can run Geo MC as they provide CONSTANT energy with E and the Q also synergizes well! The other team comp, that is mentioned in bold, is Ning/Geo MC – Xinyan – Bennett for the classic 2-Geo + 2-Pyro comp

Great flex slot alternatives:

  • Xinyan – A4 passive buffs Phys DMG by 15%, and can be run as a burst DPS for strong nuke windows
  • Bennett – Strong heals + ATK buff that is essentially up 24/7. Has great synergy with high HP characters like Zhongli (and really easy to gear too!)
  • Geo MC – Covers for Zhongli’s low ER with E spam + their Q resonates with Zhongli pillar to provide small bits of CC
  • Ganyu – Run as burst DPS. Great source of Cryo spread and does quite a lot of damage too (makes proc’ing superconduct extremely easy)
  • Venti – Amazing energy source with E spam + Venti Q works really well with Zhongli Q, as enemies stuck in tornado turn to stone and stay on the ground (they still take damage from Venti Q while on the ground!)

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.

    Hello,

    What would be the team with Venti ?
    I’m thinking Zhongli Diona Venti Fischl.
    Venti can easily spread cryo or electro for aoe superconduct before Zhongli starts wiping all monsters traped in the tornado.
