Childe belongs to the hydro element and fulfills the role of the main damage dealer. Furthermore, he can deal a vast amount of damage but only if you built him correctly. In order to get substantial damage at his base constellation, you will need to trigger several elemental reactions.

Build Childe as a great damage dealer in Genshin Impact

Weapons

Childe is a bow user and is arguably second on the list of great main damage dealers in the bow category after Ganyu. The best four-star weapon for him would be Rust because of its amazing passive. Its passive helps in increasing the normal attack damage by 40%, but decreases charged attack damage by 10%.

Childe can gain the most benefit out of all the four-star bow users as all his damage mostly relies on his normal attack. Another impressive weapon that you can get your hands on is Viridescent Hunt. The weapon’s sub-stat contains Crit Rate; therefore, it’s the best weapon if you run out of the Crit Rate while building him. You can get your hand on this weapon by buying the battle pass that miHoYo has introduced in the game.

Indeed, all four-star weapons get outshined by any five-star bow, and using them would be a substantial choice. However, if you got unlucky with the game’s gacha system, then crafting Prototype Crescent from blacksmith would be best.

Artifacts and Teambuilding

Undoubtedly, the best artifacts to get the most benefits from the Childe kit would be Heart of Depth, commonly known as a hydro set. Using the four-piece set of a hydro set is the most advantageous.

Getting good substats from an artifact is pretty much luck-based, and if luck is not by your side, then you should go for a two-piece set of Heart of Depth and Gladiator or Noblesse Oblige. Furthermore, you can also try to equip the four-piece set of Wanderer’s Troupe.

While building a team with Childe, you have to focus on the best elemental reactions. He can have a great synergy with Xiangling because of the Vaporize reactions they can provide together. Moreover, anyone can unlock Xiangling for free after reaching Adventure Rank 20, so having her on your team won’t be an arduous task.

Other than Xiangling, you can use any Pyro character you want to trigger Vaporize effects. You can even use Beidou for some Electro-Charged reaction or some Frozen composition with Kaeya, Chongyun, or Rosaria.
