There are few characters that can fit any team as a supporting character. These units offer amazing buff, primary heal, elemental reaction, and an unbreakable shield. These 5 handpicked units are tailormade for a support role, and if you get the chance, ensure you pick them up.

Zhongli

The geo Archon himself is seen as undoubtedly the strongest support unit. He offers an unbreakable shield that scales with his HP. It will essentially make the game easier, as you will no longer have to bother about dodging. He is currently available on the rate-up banner and if you have the primogems to spare, use it to grab this amazing support character.

Venti

Venti is another archon character, who excels at being a supporting unit. Much like Zhongli, Venti also removes game mechanics as he makes your life significantly easier. He offers the greatest crowd control ultimate that can suspend mobs of enemies in mid-air. Hence the community regards him as the strongest support unit, who can be paired up with anyone, including Xiao.

Ganyu

Ganyu is arguably one of the strongest DPS units, and she can fill the role of support as well. She can offer a constant barrage of Cryo applications that no other unit can match. It can be used to unleash Melt, Super Conduct, and Frozen reaction. This can be used to amplify the damage output of most DPS units, as Ganyu can also lock enemies with her basic ability.

Bennett

He is one of the few 4-star units, who can outdo 5-star support characters in terms of utility. He offers insane healing based on his HP pool and lucrative attack buff that is based on his basic attack. This allows him to take on the role of off-field support, as you would only need to swap him in for his ultimate ability.

These are the 5 best support units that you should pick up from the shop and Gacha system. These units can essentially make the game a lot easier by offering incredible support to any unit.
