Diluc is still a great damage dealer in Genshin Impact

The main reason that Diluc will always be a reliable character is that he belongs to the Pyro element. Furthermore, Pyro is the best element in the game currently as it triggers Melt and Vaporize elemental reactions which have the highest damage scaling. This increases his viability as other damage dealer other damage dealers that rely on physical damage lose their spark, eventually.

The most important thing that maximum players ignore is that all five-star claymores in the game are just average. This makes the use of Diluc quite limited when compared to others. Unlike Hu Tao, who deals immense damage through Staff of Homa, and gains tremendous bonus through its signature weapon’s passive Diluc doesn’t have this advantage.
