HoYoverse is finally bringing back one of, if not the most awaited character, Kaedehara Kazuha, in the Genshin Impact 2.8 update. It will be his first-ever rerun since the initial release when he was labeled as “not that great character,” only for people to swallow their words a few weeks later.
This Anemo unit has dominated the Spiral Abyss since his first release, and it doesn’t seem like he will be leaving that spot any time soon. So, how do you play with this character? You’re in luck because this article is all about the best Kazuha build and team composition!
Best Kazuha Build In Genshin Impact
Kazuha’s Kit And Talent Priority
Anemo units are widely popular for their ability to crowd control, and Kazuha appears to be the best at it. So, how does he work exactly?
- Normal attack: Performs up to five raid strikes with his sword.
- Elemental Skill (E): Creates a gush of wind which gathers the enemies as Kazuha triggers swirl and lunges up; upon release, Kazuha performs a plunge attack and deals damage to the enemies that were caught up in the Vortex.
- Burst (Q): With a single strike, Kazuha deals massive AoE Anemo damage and activates swirl. If an element is absorbed into the ultimate attack, that element will deal increased damage.
Regarding talent priority, his burst (Q) should receive the most attention and be leveled up first. His normal attack and elemental skill can be leveled up after that.
Best Artifacts And Weapon For Kazuha
Viridescent Verner is the universal Anemo artifact set that offers a 20 percent Anemo damage bonus if the character is equipped with a 2-piece and 4-piece provides an increase of 60 percent swirl damage and also shreds enemy defense to the element that it swirled with by 40 percent for 10s.
Therefore, Kazuha, a character that consistently triggers swirl paired with this artifact set, is a force to be reckoned with. This set is ideal if you’re considering building a DPS Kazuha since it provides the most value for him. The support build should focus on Elemental Mastery Sands, Circlet, and Goblet.
However, a DPS Kazuha would want a Crit Circlet, Anemo Damage Goblet, and an Elemental Mastery/ATK percent Sands with a focus on mostly ATK percentage, Crit, and about 140% Energy Recharge. Noblesse Oblige can also be a substitute set for Kazuha as 2-piece offers an increase in burst damage by 20 percent and also buffs the teams by increasing ATK percentage by 20 percent for 12s. However, Viridescent Verner is the ideal set for him.
Kazuha is a sword user who scales off of Elemental Mastery. Freedom Sworn is the ideal weapon for Kazuha since it offers Elemental Mastery as the secondary stat, and it will also be featured in the upcoming weapon banner alongside him. Iron Sting is also a great choice, and it is also easy to get as it can be crafted. Sacrificial Sword and Favonius Sword are also good options for a support Kazuha; however, a DPS Kazuha would bode well with a Mistsplitter or Jade Cutter.
Best Kazuha Team Composition: Which Characters Can Be Paired With Him?
Kazuha, being a universal character, can be put into any team, and he’ll perform outstandingly. However, some of the popular team compositions that include him are:
- Kazuha National: Kazuha, Bennett, Xiangling, and Xingqiu
- Kazuha Vaporize: Yelan (or Childe/Xingqiu), Hu Tao (or Xiangling), Kazuha, and Zhongli (or Bennett)
- Kazuha Overload: Raiden Shogun, Kujou Sara, Kazuha, and Bennett
- Morgana (but with Ayaka): Kamisato Ayaka, Mona (or Shenhe/Sangonomiya Kokomi), Kazuha, and Diona
The best part about Kazuha is that you’re free to mix and match team comps with him, so if there’s a team comp you enjoy, you can probably swap out one character for Kazuha and make your best Kazuha team!
Which Kazuha Constellations Should You Go For?
Kazuha, without any constellation, performs quite brilliantly, so there isn’t a need for any of his constellations. However, if you want to go for it, his C2 is the most sought after as it increases Elemental Mastery by 200 for him and the party members who are in the field when he uses his burst. C1 is also quite notable since it decreases the cooldown on his burst by 10%.
In conclusion, Kazuha can be spotted at almost every character damage showcase for a reason. He does not only deal solid damage on his own, but even an unbuilt Kazuha carrying the Viridescent set can do wonders for your team. Not to mention, his aesthetics are just as captivating. Now that you have a guide on best Kazuha build and team composition, will you be pulling for him in 2.8?
