Best Genshin Impact Cyno​ Team Combo


Cyno is the main DPS of this team, it’s going to be up to him to provide the damage.


Yelan would be able to provide the electro-charged effect with his burst.


Collei is an effective dendro applicator for catalyzing and more reactions.


Dori’s main role in this team aside from being a healer is a battery, having another electro in this team compo will help Cyno regenerate lots of energy because her energy cost is at 80.

Genehin Impact Cyno​ Builds

Genshin Impact Cyno is a main DPS  character using a polearm assisted by the power of his Electro vision. S

he has destructive power during his Pactsworn Pathclearer, which is activated by his Elemental Burst, and can even extend it with his Elemental skill. This will, in turn, make it so that the Elemental Burst will have little to no cooldown at all as long as you hit the resets.

Cyno’s passive talents will increase the damage of his elemental burst the higher his elemental mastery is.

Because of this, you want to pump his with as much elemental mastery as possible; and because you’re pumping his with lots of elemental mastery, it’ll also be a missed opportunity to not take advantage of it by putting characters that will also set up elemental reactions for him.

Best Genshin Impact Cyno​ Weapons

The best weapons for Genshin Impact Cyno are those in the banner he comes along with, the Staff of the Scarlet Sands.

However, if you’re F2P, you might want to have your eye on the other weapons on this table as they’re all really good choices.
You can also do a little experimentation, if you feel like you’re having trouble with energy, you’re going to want to use energy recharge weapons.

While if you’re having trouble with damage, you want to go with ATK or Elemental Mastery.
