When a Plunging Attack is performed using the effects of the Elemental Skill Chihayaburu, Plunging Attack DMG is converted to Anemo DMG and will create a small wind tunnel via a secret blade technique that pulls in nearby objects and opponents.



Elemental Skill

Unleashes a secret technique as fierce as the rushing wind that pulls objects and opponents towards Kazuha’s current position before launching opponents within the AoE, dealing Anemo DMG and lifting Kazuha into the air on a rushing gust of wind.

Within 10s of remaining airborne after casting Chihayaburu, Kazuha can unleash a powerful Plunging Attack known as Midare Ranzan.

Kazuha Slash

Kazuha Slash

Elemental Burst

The signature technique of Kazuha’s self-styled bladework — a single slash that strikes with the force of the first winds of autumn, dealing AoE Anemo DMG.

The blade’s passage will leave behind a field named “Autumn Whirlwind” that periodically deals AoE Anemo DMG to opponents within its range.

This will be considered Plunging Attack DMG.

Elemental Absorption may only occur once per use of Chihayaburu.

Best Genshin Impact Kazuha Builds

Kazuha is probably one of the most versatile characters in Genshin Impact’s roster. However, this doesn’t mean that Venti or Sucrose is going to be replaced by Kazuha in every team composition.

There are teams where it would be much preferred to have Sucrose than Kazuha, such as vaporize and melt compositions where Sucrose’s passive helps the other members of the party.

While Venti is easily the strongest Anemo sub DPS character, if you’re having trouble hitting enemies inside his elemental burst, Kazuha’s elemental skill does the same thing but in a shorter fashion and a much lower angle.

Best Genshin Impact Kazuha Weapons

The best weapons for Kazuha depend on the type of artifact and main stats you’re running.

If you’re running a full elemental mastery on him, we suggest going for a sword that has energy recharge as its sub stat like Sacrificial Sword.

If you’re running energy recharge and double elemental mastery, we suggest an elemental mastery sword, like Iron Sting or Freedom-Sworn.

Sacrificial Sword​

Sacrificial Sword

 After dealing damage to an opponent with an Elemental Skill, the skill has a 40% chance to end its own CD. Can only occur once every 30s.



A part of the “Millennial Movement” that wanders amidst the winds. Increases DMG by 10%. When the character wielding this weapon triggers Elemental Reactions, they gain a Sigil of Rebellion. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s and can be triggered even if said character is not on the field.

When you possess 2 Sigils of Rebellion, all of them will be consumed and all nearby party members will obtain “Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance” for 12s. “Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance” increases Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack DMG by 16% and increases ATK by 20%. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Rebellion for 20s.

Of the many effects of the “Millennial Movement,” buffs of the same type will not stack.

Iron Sting

Iron Sting

Dealing Elemental DMG increases all DMG by 6% for 6s. Max 2 stacks. Can only occur once every 1s.

Best Genshin Impact Kazuha Artifacts

There’s only one artifact that fits Kazuha to a tee, and that’s Viridescent Venerer.

Viridescent Venerer

Viridescent Venerer

  • 2-piece effect: Anemo damage bonus +15%
  • 4-piece effect: increases swirl damage by 60%. Decreases the opponent’s elemental resistance to the element infused in the swirl by 40% for 10 seconds.

FAQs about Genshin Impact Kazuha

Kazuha (written: 一葉, 円葉 or 和葉) is a feminine Japanese given name. But Kazuha is a true male character.

Approximately 18-22 years old. The age of Kazuha is not obviously stated in the game. His birthday is on October 29th

Kazuha is a 5-star Anemo Sword character in Genshin Impact. Learn more about Kazuha’s character information, best weapons, artifacts, and builds, recommended characters, ascension materials, Talents, Constellations, and more in this build guide!

Kazusa Murai: Kazuha’s Mother. Some people may also ask: Is Kazuha Beidou’s son? Beidou and Kazuha are not related.

Against those enemies, Kazuha fares better since, as mentioned above, he can Swirl multiple elements, leading to higher damage output. This lets the team burst down the big enemies with their colorful team compositions. Against other bosses, Kazuha also functions better than Venti.

Yes, you should get Kazuha’s character, because Kazuha is an excellent Anemo Sword user and Sub-DPS who can amplify your DPS’ Elemental DMG.

Kazuha’s Elemental Skill can suck in enemies while dealing with Anemo DMG, it can also be used for exploration purposes.

You’ll want Kazuha on a Melt Team with Ganyu because he’s an Anemo-user, meaning he can react with all other elements.

If you have access to him, you can swap him out for Sucrose and Venti on a team because he has a mix of both of their elemental functions.

If you’d rather focus on building Kazuha as a pure DPS character, the weapon of choice here is the Sacrificial Sword.

It increases damage dealt by normal and charged attacks by 30% while additionally regenerating health equal to 80% of his attack stat when either a normal or charged attack hits with a critical hit.

Ideally, you’ll want to prioritize Kazuha’s burst, followed by his skill and, finally, his normal attacks.

Passive talents:

Cloud Strider -20% stamina consumption for the party.
Soumon Swordsmanship – Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, and Electro effects are absorbed by the Chihayabaru elemental skill.

If Kazuha is in C0, he might be a very good support to the team. If he is in higher constellations, such as C4-C6, he will be the team’s main DPS.

If you don’t have enough Primogems, and only pull him in Constellation 0 (C0), I suggest using him as a support. Just use his Elemental Skills and Elemental Burst.

With Kazuha’s massive buffs, this setup allows for the highest DPS of any Hu Tao team. Bennett can be replaced here with another Pyro support. Even Amber works, and the new character Thoma may also be a good fit.

No, Kazuha does almost nothing for Xiao.

For grouping enemies, as discussed earlier, Venti always wins against Kazuha. Outside of combat, Venti has more utility; players can even use his Elemental Burst to concentrate loot in one spot if they’re feeling lazy.

The best team composition for Kazuha includes Hu Tao, Bennett, and Xingqiu.

Bennett’s Elemental Burst doesn’t only heal and grant damage buff, but it also infuses the active character with Pyro. This is usually used to cleanse Elemental debuff, but with Anemo characters, it can be utilized to trigger Swirl.

With Bennett, Kazuha can easily trigger Pyro Swirl, which is great for characters that react with it. Furthermore, Kazuha can also benefit from the infamous C6 Bennett.

Bennett’s last Constellation grants 15% Pyro damage and Pyro infusion. Kazuha will happily take the damage bonus for his Plunge attack.

Xingqiu also allows Kazuha to easily Swirl. Although Xingqiu doesn’t provide multiple buffs like Xiangling, he also has Hydro Resistance Reduction on his second Constellation. One downside with Xingqiu is that his Elemental Burst only triggers when the character uses Normal Attack. So this may not be optimal for Kazuha.

Hu Tao is dependent on her Elemental Skill, Guide to Afterlife. When Hu Tao enters her Paramita Papilio state, she can deal great Pyro damage in exchange for her HP.

Kazuha’s ability to collect enemies, reduce their resistance, and increase her Pyro damage will further boost Hu Tao’s damage.

Moreover, if enemies were affected by Cryo, Electro, or Hydro, Kazuha’s Swirls will keep those elements rotating between enemies. This allows Hu Tao to trigger more Elemental Reactions.
