Genshin Impact: 6 Best Team Builds

Preview

This article will tell you about 6 of the best team builds to use in Genshin Impact, typically for Spiral Abyss. The information is retrieved from the survey conducted on China's server for all users that have completed Floor 12 of Spiral Abyss. I have looked through the responses from the survey and compiled these commonly used teams. In this article, I will give variations of some of the characters. I understand that not everyone has all the characters for the "best builds", but fret not as there are great 4 star substitutes for 5-star characters as well.

Team 1 - Geo

    1. Noelle C6 (substitute): Main DPS, heals, provides a shield
