Genshin Impact Razor Best Team Combo





– Razor will be the on-field DPS for this team comp. Make the most out of his damage by juggling between your supports to constantly apply superconduct and increase his Physical Damage output further.

– Kaeya is the best Cryo partner for Razor since his Burst is on-field, constantly applies Cryo, and lasts for a good amount. His Skill also has a small cooldown and hits multiple enemies in a small area.

– Juggle Fischl between Razor to apply Electro damage to enemies for the Superconduct. However, it’s not advisable to use her skill before Razor’s Burst is used

– Diona is a good healer/support for Razor. She provides shield, healing, and Cryo damage that will benefit the close-ranged Razor

Best Genshin Impact Razor Builds

Razor is in a tight spot regarding his flexibility. The only role he’s suited to is the main DPS which can make him very susceptible to power creep.

Best Weapons for Razor in Genshin Impact

Since Razor will be dishing out lots of damage, you’d want a weapon that can do the same. Here are some of the best weapons for Razor:

Wolf's Gravestone​

Wolf's Gravestone

Increases ATK by 20%. On hit, attacks against opponents with less than 30% HP increase all party members’ ATK by 40% for 12s. Can only occur once every 30s.

Serpent Spine​

Serpent Spine

Every 4s a character is on the field, they will deal 6% more DMG and take 3% more DMG. This effect has a maximum of 5 stacks and will not be reset if the character leaves the field, but will be reduced by 1 stack when the character takes DMG.

Prototype Archaic

Prototype Archaic

On hit, Normal or Charged Attacks have a 50% chance to deal an additional 240% ATK DMG to opponents within a small AoE. Can only occur once every 15s.

Best Artifacts for Razor in Genshin Impact

Similar to above, you’d want artifacts that boost Razor’s attack or have very good synergy with him. Here are some of the few that he can use. Make sure not to mix and match these two. If you’re using one of them, go for the 4-piece effect.

For main stats, look out for ATK Sands, Electro DMG% Goblet, and Crit Rate/Crit Damage Circlet depending on your Crit Rate.

Pale Flame

Pale Flame

  • 2-piece effect: Physical DMG +25%
  • 4-piece effect: When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, ATK is increased by 9% for 7s. This effect stacks up to 2 times and can be triggered once every 0.3s. Once 2 stacks are reached, the 2-set effect is increased by 100%.
Gladiator's Finale

Gladiator's Finale

  • 2-piece effect: ATK +18%.
  • 4-piece effect: If the wielder of this artifact set uses a Sword, Claymore or Polearm, increases their Normal Attack DMG by 35%.

FAQs about Genshin Impact Razor

In order to get Razor in Genshin Impact, you will have to shell out 34 Masterless Starglitter.

He will only be available until the server refreshes later today. In case you missed out on the opportunity, don’t worry, he is more likely to return at some point in the times to come.

Based on how Diluc and Kaeya looked at 18 in the manga, Razor is probably closer to 16.

Especially since he refers to Barbara as a child and she is assumed to be between 14 to 15 herself. 

The ages of all playable Genshin Impact characters are not confirmed by the developer but are just a guess from their images.

However, the characters’ birthdays are confirmed. Razor was born on September 9th.

No. Razor is actually a 4-star Electro Claymore character in the game. It’s easy to get Razor.

Chances are you’ll be after a five-star character (with a measly pull chance of 0.6 percent), but end up with Razor (who, alongside the other 13 four-stars in the banner, has a pull chance of 2.2 percent).

As a sword-wielding Electro character, Razor performs well in parties that can help cause Genshin Impact elemental reactions – Cryo, Pyro, and Hydro characters help Razor deal massive amounts of damage.

Razor’s damaging attack combos make him the ideal candidate for the central DPS role in any party.

Not really. The rarity to get Razor in Genshin Impact is only 4-star. That means you can not only put it from any active banner but also purchase this character with 34 Masterless Starglitter. 

However, Razor is an extremely rare four-star rated electro-elemental character in Genshin Impact, and he can be quite difficult to unlock.

Though Noelle deals heavy damage and mostly penetrates all elements except itself. – Noelle heals the entire party while Razor doesn’t. – Razor’s DPS is not locked by his elemental burst and it adds more to his overall damage with both his Physical and Electro Damages kicking in against your enemies.

The best weapons for Razor include Wolf’s Gravestone, Serpent Spine, and Prototype Archaic.

They work great to improve Razor’s performance in ATK, DMG, and Normal or Charged Attacks.

Razor scales with physical attack damage, which works well with the superconduct of him and Kaeya since it lowers enemy physical resistance by 40% for 12secs. Keep that in mind as you build both him and your team.

It’s better to improve Razor’s talents of Normal Attack and Elemental Skill first to improve his performance.

So while Kaeya isn’t the best main DPS character, if he’s your only cryo character, you should have a DPS Kaeya build ready to go whenever you need a cryo DPS on your team.

As a physical DPS, Razor is among the best. Use him when you need a heavy hitter, or if you need an electro DPS but you don’t have Keqing.

Klee and Razor know each other and appear to be good friends with each other.

The best team composition for Razor inclues Kaeya, Fischl, and Diona.

Diona is everything Razor wants in one character. She can shield him during his Elemental Burst, giving players the confidence to be aggressive. She can heal Razor when he’s hurt, and she can apply Cryo on enemies to trigger Superconduct.

Kaeya’s Elemental Skill is also one of the best batteries in the game, so Kaeya can easily spam his Elemental Burst, Glacial Waltz.

This is thrilling because Kaeya’s Elemental Burst is an off-field skill, similar to Xiangling. Players can swap Kaeya out after using his Burst and let Razor go berserk with Kaeya’s Glacial Waltz.

Fischl’s supportive abilities are so underrated because of her high DPS. Her Elemental Skill provokes enemies to attack it while her Elemental Burst creates a huge AOE of continuous Cryo application. Fischl’s Elemental Burst can have 100% uptime, so she’s an amazing support to trigger Superconduct.
