Welcome to Fischl's Build Guide!

Fischl of Genshin Impact might oddly present herself as Prinzessin der Verurteilung, who hails from the realm of Immernachtreich. If you don’t mind her long and formal dialogues, you will definitely enjoy a powerful sub-DPS and support Fischl build carrying your party.

That is why we prepared the best Fischl build so you can maximize her physical and Electro damage against enemies. Read on to know more about her talents, suitable weapons, teams, and recommended artifacts!

A Summary Of Fischl’s Kit

Fischl has many weapon options to choose from; she can be equipped with the 5-star Aqua Simulacra, the Skyward Harp, or the Polar Star. As for her best 4-star weapon, The Stringless is by far the best choice.

As for her ideal artifact set, players can choose to mix and match Shimenawa’s Reminiscence, Thundering Fury, and the Gilded Dreams set. For the best results, we suggest players combine the former two artifact sets mentioned.

Due to her flexible skillset, Fischl can work either as a Physical sub-DPS or an Electro support. Her fast Normal Attack speed is ideal for dealing raw Physical DMG while her raven Oz can inflict continuous Electro DMG, even when Fischl is not the active character.

Fischl’s Elemental Skill

Throughout the ability’s 10-second duration, Oz will attack enemies with Electro using Freikugel. This attribute makes this Elemental Skill useful in making a series of elemental reactions such as Overload, Electro-Charged, and Hyperbloom.

That’s exactly what makes Fischl‘s Elemental Skill, Nightrider, impressive. While this skill doesn’t have any unique version when held, it allows you to aim it towards your enemies. However, if you’re practically next to your target, you can tap or press the skill to summon Oz, dealing instant Electro DMG within a small AoE.

Fischl’s Elemental Burst

Fischl‘s Elemental Burst, Midnight Phantasmagoria, will allow her to take the form of Oz and move at a greater speed. As she escapes through the crowd, she will strike each nearby enemy with lightning, dealing Electro DMG. At the end of her Elemental Burst, Fischl automatically uses Nightrider to summon Oz to her position.

To maximize Fischl‘s skillset in your team composition, you can follow this attack sequence.

  • Use Fischl‘s Elemental Skill “Nightrider.”
  • Switch to your DPS characters, preferably Pyro or Hydro for Overload or Electro-Charged, respectively.
  • If you use a Physical Fischl build, switch back for her Normal Attack during her skill’s CD.
  • To escape mobs, tap Fischl‘s Burst and control its direction.
  • NOTE: Use Fischl‘s Elemental Skill first before her Burst to utilize Nightrider’s initial AoE Electro DMG.

Best Artifacts for DPS/Support

As a damage dealer, Fischl would benefit from the classic DPS build with ATK, Electro or Physical DMG Bonus, and Crit Rate or Crit DMG stats. Travellers should also consider prioritising Elemental Mastery as an artifact sub-stat since that will help her proc devastating reactions.

Fischl’s Best Teams

Diona, Raiden Shogun, and Rosaria

In this team comp, Fischl can work as an excellent supportive character for the Raiden Shogun. The character can be utilised as an Electro Battery to provide for Ei’s ridiculous energy costs. Supporting characters like Rosaria and Diona are good team mates for the Shogun.

Diona, Eula, and Rosaria

Fischl can use her Off-field Electro applying capabilities to consistently proc the Electro-charged elemental reaction, which can help Eula do massive burst DMG. Note that Rosaria and Diona are supportive characters and can be replaced by any other character that fits your playstyle.

Kamisato Ayato, Kaedehara Kazuha, and Bennett

This team is perhaps the most chaotic (and fun) team to play with Fischl. With Kazuha swirling everything, Bennett providing ATK boosts and occasional Pyro application, and Ayato wiping the floor with everything else, this team will surely rack up some electrifying DMG!


What do you think of Fischl as a Physical or Electro damage dealer? We hope this handy guide on Fischl helped you use her potential for your combats in Teyvat!
