Top five characters with best elemental burst in Genshin Impact


Rex Lapis is the Geo archon in the game and also has a more familiar name, Zhongli. There were a lot of controversies when Zhongli was first released and many players were disappointed that they made an investment in him. However, miHoYo later gave some buffs to Zhongli as well as Geo resonance, which made him one of the strongest characters of the game.

Zhongli’s elemental burst, Planet Befall, summons a meteor to smith his enemies. The meteor deals massive Geo DMG to opponents caught in its AoE and applies the Petrification status to them. The Petrification status makes opponents stable for few seconds.

Furthermore, his elemental has a very low energy cost and only requires 40 energy. Thus, he can often launch his elemental burst over opponents owing to his low energy cost.


Venti is the Anemo archon introduced by miHoYo at the release of the game. We also know him as Barbatos, and he had his re-run banner at the start of the 1.4 update. Venti’s elemental burst, Wind’s Grand Ode, creates a huge Stormeye that sucks in opponents and deals continuous Anemo DMG.

Moreover, if his elemental burst comes in contact with Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, and Electro elements, it will deal additional elemental damage to enemies. Venti’s burst makes him an unbelievable support character and really makes clearing many hard floors of Spiral Abyss a piece of cake.
