You might already be aware of the role-playing gaming genre that requires users to advance throughout the gaming story by choosing & controlling particular characters; such characters can be differentiated based on their attributes & roles.
In a similar fashion, we can see many characters in the Genshin Impact; Genshin Impact is actually one of the famous adventurous role-playing games that are totally free to play. There are almost 48 playable characters in the respective game. Some might be free, but most of these come in the purchasable category; thus, it may not seem feasible for the users to be closely familiar with each character of the game.  
However, here we a chosen specifically the Ganyu Genshin Impact character to make the users fully aware of all its attributes & other vital related aspects.
In this comprehensive piece of the discussion, we intend to elaborate on the ways you can opt to get the best out of Ganyu’s character and a detailed guide to build a support Ganyu has been put forward because basically, you need to properly build a character in order to make it play in a particular playstyle.

What is Ganyu?

Ganyu is basically a playable character in the video game Genshin Impact and is quite popular for dominating the battlefield with her deadly ranged & critical hits; moreover, it decimates everything that gets in its questing way.

How old is Ganyu?

How old is Ganyu?

Ganyu is the oldest one among all playable characters of the Genshin Impact game, having the most extended history. It is said that Ganyu was created on the 2nd of December and her birthday is about 3000+ years old. So, she comes under the Sagittarius zodiac sign.

Is Ganyu a Support character?

Although it is a DPS character, in fact, it won’t be wrong to call it the most robust DPS character of the game; still, you can use it as a support character also, as a Ganyu helps you out in encountering and dealing with the strict enemies on the battlefield.

Note: The term DPS refers to the characters that are supposed to quickly deal with the damages.

Role of Ganyu in Genshin Impact

Ganyu being the most robust & most versatile DPS character plays a leading role in Genshin Impact, and the way she functions in a game may impact the overall game plot.
As we have stated earlier, Ganyu has support capabilities also in addition to playing a DPS role, so, being a hybrid character (possessing both Supportive & DPS properties), initially, she draws in the enemies relying on her elemental skills and then deals with the attacks & Cryo damages.

 What are the Ganyu weapons?

 What are the Ganyu weapons?

Ganyu is an incredible character of the Genshin Impact RPG (Role-playing game) that is quite popular for charged shots & elemental reactions and isn’t much dependent on the weapons, but still, some of the good weapons used by Ganyu are enlisted below.

Amos’ bow 

It is an extremely ancient 5-star bow in Genshin Impact that proves to be quite effective for Ganyu build and can be pulled out at any time. In fact, it is equally effective for everyone intended for attack buffs.

Skyward Harp 

Skyward Harp is another powerful five-star bow in Genshin Impact, which actually resembles a harp and is considered a fantastic weapon, especially for Ganyu.

The Stringless

It is actually the strongest 4-star bow in the Genshin Impact game; however, it might be slightly weaker than other five-star bows. The Stringless is quite suitable for the elemental mastery of Ganyu.

Blackcliff Warbow

The Blackcliff Warbow weapon in Genshin Impact is considered the 3rd best bow that is made of Blackstone, and it can easily be obtained via Starglitter Exchange; this can work as a good alternative to Amos’ bow for Ganyu. 

Prototype Crescent

The Prototype crescent is basically a craftable item that mainly increases the movement speed and provides a ton of attack; therefore, given this fact, it is considered the best 4-star weapon to be used by Ganyu.
Even we can call out a weapon as Ganyu’s signature weapon, which is Amos’ bow; Amos’ bow is often considered the best bow for Ganyu as it makes the Ganyu shine out in the gaming fights even better. However, other five-star bows can also be used if you don’t have an Amos’ bow because some players might need to unlock it in the first place.

Note: Ganyu’s performance may get affected by the type of weapon she is equipped with.

What are Ganyu Artifact?

Artifacts are basically the items playable characters get equipped with in order to increase their stats because such artifacts actually grant significant boosts to characters, and therefore, when it comes to building a character in Genshin Impact, either it is Ganyu or someone else, artifacts always play the crucial role.
Each artifact offers different buffs & set bonuses, and being a player, you need to choose it appropriately. So, here, we have cited a brief & quick Ganyu artifact build guide in the following section.

  • Blizzard Strayer (Peak of Vindagnyr Domain)
  • Wanderer’s Troupe (Boss Drop)
  • Noblesse Oblige (Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern)

Though all the stated artifacts are good, but the Blizzard Strayer is considered the best artifact for Ganyu.

Ganyu constellations

Ganyu constellations

Constellations act as an Upgrade way for Genshin Impact characters. If we consider Ganyu in this regard, we can find out it works fine even at zero constellation; however, still, players can make their Ganyu character stronger (in terms of skills or talents) if they want by upgrading to constellation levels C1, C4, and C6.
Note that the players might require collecting certain essential materials in order to unlock or upgrade a constellation in Genshin Impact. Each Ganyu constellation can be unlocked by the players by consuming a material Stella Fortuna, and this Stella Fortuna can be obtained either by duplication of character via Wishes/ Gacha Pull or by purchasing from Paimon’s Bargains.

C1 – Dew Drinker
C2 – The Profitable 
C4 – Stopover to the west 
C6 – The Clement


You might have gone through the entire Genshin impact Ganyu build guide given above. So, from the above-stated discussion, we can conclude that Ganyu is a hybrid character that acts as both Support & DPS characters.
Ganyu is referred to as a pretty dominant character on the battlefield due to her outstanding elemental skills, and Amos’ bow is considered the signature weapon used by her. Moreover, we have also elaborated on Ganyu’s constellations & Artifacts and demonstrated the way to unlock such constellations.
