Best Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou​ Team Combo

Shikanoin Heizou

Since Heizou can easily deal swirl damage with normal attacks, he is very flexible, especially for synergy with off-field DPS.


Yelan will work well with Heizou especially since her Elemental Burst stays on-field and is triggered with Normal Attacks.


Fischl’s Elemental Skill will consistently apply Electro and with the right rotations, have an almost 100% up time.


Bennett provides heal & additional attack stat for the whole team while inside the AOE of his elemental burst.

Genehin Impact Shikanoin Heizou​ Builds

Shikanoin Heizou has the potential to be a primary DPS character or a strong elemental support DPS – or both. With his flurry of punches infused with Anemo, he can easily swirl opponents afflicted with elements, or even better, he can swirl off of his teammates’ skills or burst.

Heartstopper Strike is a highly damaging ability that should be used in conjunction with your normal attacks. His Elemental Burst, Windmuster Kick is a great skill to use when being mobbed so you can immediately gather all the monsters in it and easily combo them with normal attacks and Heartstopper Strike.
Because Shikanoin Heizou looks to be an Anemo damage dealer with a focus on elemental reactions, you likely want to leave his talents at 1/1/1 for normal attack, elemental skill, and elemental burst. Instead, you want to get your elemental mastery as high as possible.

It’s also recommended to get him to Level 90, because the damage formula for transformative reactions – including Swirl – factors in your character level.

Best Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou​ Weapons

What’s better than using your elemental skill? Using it and not having to deal with its cooldown! Sacrificial Fragments is one of the best weapons for Heizou for that reason, since it lets you get the most from his Heartstopper Strike Declension stacks and deal more elemental damage.

Another weapon to note is the Solar Pearl, which works perfectly with Heizou, as the Solar Pearl’s passive enhances normal attacks after using his elemental skill or burst and enhances elemental attacks after using normal attacks.

These are our top picks, but if you don’t manage to get them, you’re not out of luck.
