Anemo Traveler gains most from the Elemental Mastery buff in Genshin Impact

Traveler is the only character in the whole game which can hold the power of every element in the game. There are seven types of elements – Anemo, Geo, Electro, Hydro, Dendro, Cryo, and Pyro. Currently, Traveler can use two elements which are Anemo and Geo.

Until now, everyone considered Traveler as a burden, and most players never leveled them up. The main reason being they do less damage and due to very few resources, everyone tries to focus on other characters. However, miHoYo just buffed Elemental Mastery and every Anemo character is now improved including Traveler.

Anemo Traveler solves the problem of crowd control that most players face in Spiral Abyss. Furthermore, in-floor 11 developers also buff Swirl damage by 300% which increases their value. Most importantly, Traveler is one of the characters that players get for free and the only character you can get as C6 in the game.

Other than that, they wield the power of every element; therefore, it’s highly likely they may become more powerful than before in the future. If you want to build him as a great Anemo support damage dealer then you should put a full piece Viridescent Venerer artifact set.

For the weapon, you can go for Iron Sting, which is a craftable weapon in the game and provides Elemental Mastery as a sub-stat.

You just have to build him around Elemental Master and every artifact should have a sub-stat of Elemental Mastery in it. You don’t have to focus much on increasing their Crit Rate or Crit DMG while building him around the Anemo element.
