Although Pyro element is currently the best element in the game, miHoYo is also focusing on Anemo Characters. The new Abyss favors Swirl reaction a lot and even crowd control is very necessary for some floor chambers.

Floor 9 and 10 require Pyro characters as there are a lot of Cryo enemies on those floors. Therefore, keeping a Pyro character on both teams will be a splendid choice. Opponents in these floors are not of high level therefore defeating them would not be that big of a deal.

However, you will encounter Abyss Herald in floor 10 chamber 1 second half and Abyss Lector in floor 10 chamber 2 second half. Although they very tough opponents, their level is much low as compared to the previous Abyss. Regardless, having a Cryo character would be beneficial on the second team.

Things get a bit tricky on the 11 and 12 floor as you must keep at least one Anemo character on one team. Anemo character on one team. The major reason being Swirl damage is increased by 300% and its AoE by 100% on Floor 11. Hence, you can use Venti if you have him or Sucrose who is a four-star character, and a majority of players already have her.
