Genshin Impact Fischl Guide: Best Build, Artifacts, Team, & More!

Fischl might not be the most powerful character in Genshin Impact, but she’s certainly one of the best. She also happens to be the most popular when it comes to fan art let me tell you. You know there are other characters, right folks? Okay, okay. That’s not what we’re here for. Today we’re going to run down Fischl’s abilities and recommend what we think is the best build, best artifacts, best team composition, and more!

First of all, lets explain her abilities for folks who are unfamiliar. In short, she has the usual bow attacks and the ability to summon Oz, her raven. Oz will fire at nearby foes, inflecting them with electro damage and charging them for detonations. Her ultimate transforms Fischl into Oz and lets her briefly travel as him. In this form, lightning will strike nearby enemies and Oz will remain on the battlefield to inflict more damage. To optimize the time that Oz is up, you should wait until Nightrider has almost expired to use Midnight Phantasmagoria.

  • Bolts of Downfall (Basic Attack)
    • Normal Attack: Perform up to 5 consecutive shots with a bow.
    • Charged Attack: Perform a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG. While aiming, the dark lightning spirits of Immernachtreich shall heed the call of their Prinzessin and indwell the enchanted arrowhead. When fully indwelt, the Rachsüchitg Blitz shall deal immense Electro DMG.
    • Plunging Attack: Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AOE DMG upon impact.
  • Nightrider (Basic Ability)
    • Summons Oz. The night raven forged of darkness and lightning descends upon the land, dealing Electro DMG in a small AOE. For the ability’s duration, Oz will continuously attack nearby enemies with Freikugel. Hold to adjust the location Oz will be summoned to. Press again any time during the ability’s duration to once again summon him to Fischl’s side.
  • Midnight Phantasmagoria (Ultimate)
    • Summons Oz to spread his twin wings of twilight and defend Fischl. Has the following properties during the ability’s duration:
      • Fischl takes on Oz’s form, greatly increasing her Movement Speed.
      • Strikes nearby enemies with lightning, dealing Electro DMG to enemies she comes in contact with. Each enemy can only be struck once.
      • Once this ability’s effects end, Oz will remain on the battlefield and attack his Prinzessin’s foes. If Oz is already on the field, then this will reset the duration of his presence.
  • Stellar Predator (Passive 1) – Ascension 1
    • When Fischl hits Oz with a fully-charged Aimed Shot, Oz brings down Thundering Retribution, dealing AoE Electro DMG equal to 152.7% of the arrow’s DMG.
  • Lightning Smite (Passive 2) – Ascension 4
    • If your active character triggers an Electro-related Elemental Reaction when Oz is on the field, the enemy shall be stricken with Thundering Retribution, dealing Electro DMG equal to 80% of Fischl’s ATK.
  • Mein Hausgarten (Passive 3) – Unlocked
    • When dispatched on an expedition in Mondstadt, the time consumed is reduced by 25%.


There are two different routes to go with Fischl: focus on her ability to charge foes with electro damage before switching off to your main DPS, or also giving her a decent amount of DPS. Our primary recommendations focus on regenerating her elemental skills since those are crucial for quickly charging foes.

Weapon Options

Favonius Warbow – CRIT hits have a 60/70/80/90/100% chance to generate 1 Elemental Orb, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12/10.5/9/7.5/6 seconds.

The Stringless – Increases Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG by 24/30/36/42/48%.

Compound Bow (DPS Build) – Normal Attack and Aimed Shot hits increase ATK by 4/5/6/7/8% and Normal Attack SPD by 1.2/1.5/1.8/2.1/2.4% for six seconds. Maximum of four stacks. Can only occur once every 0.3 seconds.


The best artifact set for Fischl is the Thundering Fury set which provides a 15% boost to electro damage. When sporting a full set of four, it also increases all damage caused from Overloaded, Electro-Charged, and Superconduct conditions by 40 percent. The bonus? This also decreases the cooldown of her Nightrider by one second each time it activates. Can only occur once every 0.8 seconds.

If you want to build her focused on DPS, instead opt for artifacts that increase attack, crit damage, and crit rate. Think Berserker and Gladiator’s Finale which do both! You can even split them up for the two-piece bonus from each if you’d like.

For new players, the Instructor set bonus isn’t awful since you can summon Oz then switch out to another character.


Fischl is one of the best supporting DPS characters out there. To be clear, that’s not to be confused with a healer role. Rather she deals good DPS, but also helps your main DPS character succeed and do more damage. Here are some recommended team compositions:

  • Strongest Team Comp
    • Main DPS: Diluc
    • Secondary DPS: Fischl
    • Healer: Qiqi
    • Support: Traveler
  • Shocking Team Comp
    • Main DPS: Mona
    • Secondary DPS: Fischl
    • Healer: Barbara
    • Support: Venti or Xingqiu
  • Cryo Team Comp
    • Main DPS: Chongyun
    • Secondary DPS: Fischl
    • Healer: Qiqi
    • Support: Kaeya

Talent Materials

  • Talent Level-Up Material: Teachings/Guide/Philosophies of Ballad
  • Common Ascension Material: Firm/Sharp/Historic Arrowhead


We’re putting the constellation information here at the bottom because it’s incredibly hard to get. You unlock one additional level for each subsequent time you summon Fischl. Somehow I’ve managed to get her to level two already and still don’t have Venti. Listen, I don’t want to talk about it.

  • Level 1 – Gaze of the Deep: Even when Oz is not present in combat, he can still watch over Fischl through the crow’s eyes. When Fischl attacks an enemy, Oz fires a joint attack through the crow’s eyes, dealing 22% of ATK DMG.
  • Level 2 – Devourer of All-Sins: When Nightrider is used, it deals an additional 200% ATK as DMG, and its AoE is increased by 50%.
  • Level 3 – Wings of Nightmare: Increases Nightrider’s skill level by 3. Max level is 15.
  • Level 4 – Her Pilgrimage of Bleak: When Midnight Phantasmagoria is used, deals 222% of ATK as Electro DMG to surrounding enemies. When the skill duration ends, Fischl recovers 20% of her HP.
  • Level 5 – Against the Fleeing Light: Increases Midnight Phantasmagoria’s skill level by 3. Max level is 15.
  • Level 6 – Evernight Raven: Increases the duration of Oz’s summoning by 2s. Additionally, Oz attacks with your active character when present, dealing 30% of Fischl’s ATK as Electro DMG.
