Genshin Impact Fischl Character and Build Guide

Her speech is hard to parse, but Fischl's high damage potential is easy to understand.

by Brandon Adams


The “Prinzessin der Verurteilung”, Fischl is one of the best support damage dealers in Genshin Impact, and easily one of the most desirable characters to pull for whenever she has a rate-up. Fischl can be turned into a devastating Physical damage machine gun, but it’s truly her raven Oz who steals the show. Fischl may be a little too deep into her roleplay, but her bow and Electro powers are no child’s game.

Genshin Impact Fischl Character and Build Breakdown

Below are listed Fischl’s full set of attacks and abilities, her passive talents, constellations, and finally all of her ascension and talent material requirements. Build recommendations, to include both suggested weapons and artifact sets, are in the center of this guide following Fischl’s constellations. If you’d like to see a full list of stats – such as damage numbers, percentages, etc. – check out Honey Hunter World, which was used as a source for this guide.

Fischl Build Suggestions in Genshin Impact

Fischl can act as a super-powered main DPS with her Physical damage build in Genshin Impact, but the build requires a few of her early constellations to be unlocked. Fischl’s secondary DPS Electro build, however, doesn’t require any of them to be viable (though the first constellation, Gaze of the Deep, is still a massive boon to Fischl’s damage). There’s a single 5-star weapon shared across both builds, though you’ll need a different collection of artifacts for each.

The Skyward Harp is the best bow available in Genshin Impact for Fischl. Its ability to trigger a small AoE in tandem with Oz’s attacks and AoEs creates a staggering amount of damage, but as a 5-star it’s more expensive and difficult to acquire. Rust is a suitable 4-star replacement for Physical Fischl builds, yet the craftable Compound Bow is an equally solid 4-star alternative. Electro Fischl builds will want the 4-star Stringless bow if they are unable to or would rather not pull for the Skyward Harp.

  • Skyward Harp: Increases Crit damage by 20% (up to 40%). Hits have a 60% (up to 100%) chance to inflict a small AoE attack, dealing 125% Physical attack damage. Can only occur once every 4s (down to 2s). Secondary: Crit Rate.
  • Rust: Increases Normal attack damage by 40% (up to 80%) but decreases Charged Attack damage by 10%. Secondary: Attack.
  • Compound Bow: Normal Attack and Charged Attack hits increase Attack by 4% and Normal Attack Speed by 1.2% for 6s. Max 4 stacks. Can only occur once every 0.3s. Secondary: Physical Damage Bonus.
  • The Stringless: Increases Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst damage by 24% (up to 48%). Secondary: Elemental Mastery.

Electro Fischl’s will only need to farm the Thundering Fury artifact set, since it boosts her Electro damage and all Electro-based elemental combos. Electro Fischl builds will want to aim for Energy Recharge first and foremost, followed by Electro damage and Attack percentage. Physical Fischl damage builds will fill a main DPS role, so they’ll need a combination of Gladiator’s Finale and Bloodstained Chivalry to maximize Fischl’s Physical damage output. This build requires Attack percentage as the main stat roll, followed by Physical damage and Crit Hit.

  • Thundering Fury (Midsummer Courtyard)
    • (2) Electro Damage Bonus +15%.
    • (4) Increases damage caused by Overloaded, Electro-Charged and Superconduct by 40%. Triggering such effects decreases Elemental Skill cooldown by 1s. Can only occur once every 0.8s.
  • Gladiator’s Finale (Elite Bosses and Weekly Bosses at World Level 2+)
    • (2) Attack +18%.
  • Bloodstained Chivalry (Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern)
    • (2) Physical damage +25%
