Genshin Impact Faruzan Guide : Build, weapons and artifacts

Genshin Impact Faruzan is a 4 star anemo character fighting with a bow. She is mostly played as a support. She has the ability to lower the Anemo resistance of her enemies and boost the Anemo damage of her allies. This makes it the ideal support for Anemo DPS such as Nomad, Xiao and Heizou. In this detailed guide, we explain how to play and equip Faruzan in Genshin Impact to get the best build. Thanks to our tips and tricks, you will know in this way which artifacts and weapons to choose, but also with whom to play her.

How to get Faruzan in Genshin Impact ?

Genshin Impact Faruzan is a 4 star character. You have a small chance to get him every time you perform invocations on an Character Event Wish or a Standard Wish.

You have more chance to unlock Faruzan in Genshin Impact when it is highlighted on a Character Event Wish, as it is the case on the banners of Itto and Nomade from December 7th to December 28th 2022.

Genshin Impact Faruzan Constellations

To shine as an Anemo holder, Faruzan will need as many constellations as possible. Ideally, he would need to unlock all of them. His C1 will allow him to fire two charged arrows after launching his elemental attack, which will generate more energy particles.

With his C2, the Anemo damage and enemy Anemo resistance drop buff of his elemental rampage will last 6 seconds longer. Its C4 will make its energy recharge easier. While the last constellation will provide a large critical damage bonus to Anemo characters taking advantage of Faruzan's elemental rampage buff.

To be able to play Faruzan properly in Genshin Impact, you should have at least unlocked his second constellation. Otherwise, his buffs will be too short.

Gameplay of Genshin Impact Faruzan

Faruzan is played as a support in teams mainly based on the Anemo element. Its purpose is to increase the Anemo damage of its allies.

Faruzan's attacks

Genshin Impact Faruzan's appeal lies in her elemental rampage: Wind Realm of Nasamjnin. The heroine Anemo deploys a Dazzling Polyhedron for 12 seconds that deals area damage and moves in a triangle. At each end, it releases a vortex pulse. This inflicts the Perfidious Wind’s Bale effect on enemies within range, lowering their Anemo resistance by 30%.

But that's not all: allies receive the Prayerful Wind’s effect. It gives them a bonus to their Anemo damage based on Faruzan's ATK . The higher the level of the ability, the greater the bonus. Each of these effects lasts 4 seconds. If you have unlocked the second Faruzan constellation, the dazzling polyhedron will last an additional 6 seconds.

To make the most of Genshin Impact Faruzan's buffs, you will need to be able to cast his elemental rampage as often as possible. Unfortunately, the latter costs 80 energy points.

You will be able to recover some energy particles by performing Faruzan's elemental attack: Wind Realm of Nasamjnin. But for that, just after activating it, you will have to make a targeted shot (two, if you have unlocked its first constellation). This one will have the added advantage of attracting enemies and objects nearby, which will be more convenient to attack them later.

In short, to play well Faruzan in Genshin Impact, start by launching his elemental attack, make a charged attack just to attract the enemies and generate energy particles, then launch his elemental unleashing as soon as possible. Then switch immediately to an Anemo DPS such as Wanderer (Scaramouche) or Xiao.

Increase the level of Faruzan's elemental rampage first, then his elemental attack. You will not use his normal attacks.

The liabilities of Faruzan

Thanks to the Impetuous Flow passive, Faruzan's target shot charge time is reduced by 60% after casting his elemental ability. As an added bonus, enemies hit by this ability will suffer the Perfidious Wind’s Bale effect and have their Anemo resistance lowered.

The Lost Wisdom of the Seven Caverns passive provides an additional damage boost to allies during Faruzan's elemental rampage. Any character under the Prayerful Wind's effect that deals Anemo damage will have their damage increased to 32% of Faruzan's base ATK .

In which teams do you play Faruzan in Genshin Impact ?

Genshin Impact Faruzan will only be interesting if played with an Anemo DPS such as Wanderer (Scaramouche), Xiao or Heizou.

We recommend the teams :

Faruzan in Genshin Impact

Nomad / Faruzan / Yelan or Xingqiu / Bennett: you can also play Xiangling to have two Pyro characters or two hydro characters, etc.

Faruzan in Genshin Impact

Xiao / Faruzan / Sucrose / Zhongli or Layla : we advise you to use a third character Anemo in order not to have energy problems for Xiao's elemental rampage.

Faruzan in Genshin Impact

Heizou / Faruzan / Xiangling / Bennett or Heizou / Faruzan / Xingqiu / Shinobu for a team composed of 4 star characters and therefore more free-to-play.

Faruzan in Genshin Impact

Faruzan will also be a great addition to a team with a majority of Anemo players such as Wanderer / Venti or Kazuha / Faruzan / Bennett. Venti or Kazuha (in DPS build) will be able to group enemies while taking advantage of Faruzan's bonuses so that your Anemo DPS can do maximum damage.

How old and tall is Genshin Impact Faruzan ?

Profile of Genshin Impact Faruzan

Although Faruzan does not appear to be older than 18 years, she is actually about 118 years old and therefore does not age. She devotes all her time to research at the academy of Sumeru. Rather small, Faruzan would measure in the 1m57.

That's it for our tips and tricks in this Genshin Impact Faruzan guide. In summary, this is the ideal support if you want to boost Wanderer (Scaramouche), Xiao or Heizou's damage. However, she needs all her constellations to shine and really buffer her Anemo allies. Also, you'll have to make sure to give her a maximum of energy recharge in her build.

Thus, Faruzan is more of a niche character that will be played in few teams. If you are looking for an Anemo character to gather enemies, or even buffer your teams more generally, we would recommend Kazuha, Venti or Sucrose. On the other hand, Faruzan will be the best support for Anemo DPS.
