Fischl, a top-tier 4-star character in Genshin Impact, has consistently risen in power with each update.
Her versatility and strength in various team compositions make her an asset in any adventurer's lineup.
This comprehensive guide dives into her abilities, best builds, top team compositions and strategies for optimal use.
The Ultimate Guide to Fischl: Best Builds and Team Comps
Fischl's Core Abilities and Strengths
Elemental Skill: Nightrider
Fischl summons Oz, her raven, to attack enemies with Electro damage.
Oz remains on the field, attacking independently, even when Fischl is switched out.
Oz’s continuous Electro attacks provide a steady stream of damage, making Fischl effective in prolonged battles.
Elemental Burst: Midnight Phantasmagoria
Fischl briefly transforms into Oz, dealing AOE Electro damage upon activation and reactivation.
This ability also redeploys Oz, ensuring his constant presence on the battlefield.
At her fourth constellation, Fischl’s Elemental Burst provides additional AOE Electro damage and heals her, enhancing her survivability.
Ascension 4 Passive - Lightning Smite
When an active character triggers an Electro-related Elemental reaction, Oz reacts by dealing additional Electro damage.
This ability has no internal cooldown, allowing for rapid reapplication of Electro and frequent reaction damage.
Fischl's Talent Prioritization
Oz, summoned through her Elemental Skill, is the centerpiece of Fischl's kit, consistently dealing Electro damage.
As Oz stays active even when Fischl is off-field, upgrading this talent enhances her supportive capabilities in triggering Elemental reactions.
This talent is less crucial but still valuable for its initial Electro AOE damage and for repositioning or resummoning Oz.
While not as consistently impactful as her Elemental Skill, it's beneficial when Oz's duration needs to be extended or when Fischl needs a quick escape.
Only prioritize if Fischl is used as a primary damage dealer, which is less common.
In a support role, Fischl rarely uses normal attacks, focusing instead on Oz's Electro damage.
Optimal Artifacts for Fischl
Golden Troupe Set (Best for Electro Support/Sub-DPS)
Increases Elemental Skill damage by a significant margin.
Maximizes Oz's Electro damage output, making this set a top choice for Fischl when used primarily to support and trigger Electro reactions.
Thundering Fury Set (Alternative for Reaction-Based Teams)
Boosts Electro damage and reduces Elemental Skill cooldown upon triggering Electro-related reactions.
Particularly effective in teams focusing on Electrocharge reactions.
Mixed Sets (Versatile Option)
2-Piece Thundering Fury and 2-Piece Gladiator's Finale or Shimenawa's Reminiscence for a balance between Electro damage and overall ATK boost.
Offers a balanced approach, suitable for various team compositions.
Gilded Dreams Set (Aggravate/Spread Teams)
Provides Elemental Mastery, strengthening reaction damage in Dendro-based teams.
Ideal for teams where Fischl plays a role in triggering Aggravate or Spread reactions.
Main Stats Priority
- Sands: ATK% or Elemental Mastery (for reaction-focused builds).
- Goblet: Electro DMG Bonus to maximize her Electro damage output.
- Circlet: CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG, aiming for a balanced CRIT Rate to CRIT DMG ratio of 1:2.
Focus on CRIT Rate/DMG, ATK%, Elemental Mastery (for reaction-based roles), and Energy Recharge if needed for Burst uptime.

Synergistic Team Compositions
Electro-Charged (Taser) Teams
Fischl and Hydro DPS create frequent Electro-Charged reactions, increased by Anemo's Swirl and Elemental Mastery buffs.
Can be filled by a healer like Barbara for sustainability or another Electro character like Beidou for enhanced Electro reactions.
Combines Fischl's Electro application with Pyro for powerful Overload explosions.
Anemo character can spread and strengthens the reactions.
Ideal for physical DPS characters.
Superconduct reduces enemies' Physical RES, allowing the Physical DPS to maximize damage.
Aggravate/Spread Teams (Dendro)
Fischl aids in setting up Aggravate/Spread reactions with Dendro, enhancing overall damage output, especially with Raiden Shogun as an Electro battery.
Core Team: Fischl, Energy-hungry DPS (e.g., Razor, Beidou), Anemo support, and a healer.
Fischl serves as an excellent battery, particularly beneficial for characters with high Energy demands.
Sub-DPS in Mixed Reaction Teams
Core Team: Fischl, Main DPS of a different element, Support character for additional reactions (e.g., Xiangling for Overload), and a healer.
Versatile team comp that can adapt to different scenarios.
Fischl provides additional damage and reaction opportunities.
C1: Gaze of the Deep
When Fischl hits Oz with a fully charged Aimed Shot, Oz brings down Thundering Retribution, dealing AoE Electro DMG equal to 152.7% of the arrow's DMG.
Increases AoE Electro damage potential but is generally less impactful for her usual support role.
C2: Devourer of All Sins
When Oz is on the field, characters' Electro-related reaction DMG is increased by 80% for 10s.
Significantly boosts the damage of Electro-Charged and other Electro-related reactions, enhancing Fischl's support role.
C4: Her Pilgrimage of Bleak
When Midnight Phantasmagoria is used, it deals 222% of ATK as Electro DMG to surrounding enemies.
When the skill duration ends, Fischl regenerates 20% of her HP.
Adds more AoE damage potential and a self-heal mechanism, offering more survivability.
C6: Evernight Raven
Increases Oz's duration by 2 seconds.
Additionally, Oz attacks with the current character when present, dealing 30% of Fischl's ATK as Electro DMG.
This constellation is a game-changer. It not only increases Oz's uptime but also adds significant extra Electro DMG whenever the active character attacks.
Advanced Strategies and Tips
Maximizing Oz’s Uptime and Damage
Understand that Oz’s damage snapshots Fischl’s stats at the moment he is summoned.
This includes buffs from food, potions, or abilities from other characters.
Summon Oz using Fischl’s Elemental Skill, switch to your main DPS, and then bring Fischl back to re-summon Oz with her Elemental Burst when he's about to disappear for near-constant uptime.
Electro Reaction Optimization
Pair Fischl with Hydro characters like Xingqiu or Tartaglia for consistent Electro-Charged reactions.
Fischl's C2 enhances this synergy.
Team up with Pyro characters for Overload reactions.
Ideal in scenarios requiring AoE damage and knockback.
Energy Recharge Balance
ER Management: While Fischl doesn’t heavily rely on Energy Recharge, maintaining a balance ensures more frequent use of her Elemental Burst for additional Oz summoning.
Favonius Warbow Usage: If Fischl’s CRIT Rate is high, using Favonius Warbow can turn her into an efficient energy battery.
Positioning and Field Awareness
Oz Placement: Position Oz strategically using Fischl’s Elemental Skill or Burst to ensure maximum enemy coverage.
Reactivate Oz: You can reposition Oz by reactivating the Elemental Skill or using her Burst, making it versatile for dynamic battle situations.
C6 Synergy: If you have C6 Fischl, synchronize her with characters that have fast attack rates to maximize the additional Electro damage.
C4 Healing: Use her C4 for a self-sustain, especially in longer fights or when Fischl is used as a main DPS.

Fischl's evolution into a powerhouse character in Genshin Impact is undeniable.
Whether as a supportive Electro applicator or a significant source of off-field DPS, she adapts remarkably to various team setups.
Her ability to synergize with multiple elements and playstyles, coupled with the right build and strategy, makes her an invaluable asset in any player's roster.
