Shikanoin Heizou is a rather atypical 4-star Anemo hero. While he is armed with a catalyst, he actually fights hand-to-hand. He thus benefits from an original and particularly fun gameplay. He will be played mostly as a main DPS or burst DPS and will be able to cause big damages in elementary teams. We reveal the strengths and weaknesses of Shikanoin Heizou from Genshin Impact as well as our tips and tricks for playing the hero in this complete guide. You'll know which weapons and artifacts to equip to give him the best build, but also in which teams to play him.
Shikanoin Heizou is a 4-star character, you have a small chance to summon him in Standard Wish and Character Event Wish.
The chances of unlocking Heizou in Genshin Impact are increased when he is featured in an Event Banner, as is the case in the first part of update 2.8 of Genshin Impact (Wednesday, July 13 to Tuesday, August 2). You can get it by performing invocations on the Banners of Klee or Kazuha.
You will be able to make your Heizou more powerful thanks to its challenges. His C1 Named Juvenile Casebook allows him to attack faster and to obtain 1 Declension accumulation for his elemental attack.
Investigative Collection (C2) increases the pull of Heizou's elemental rampage and its duration by one second.
But, the biggest damage boost is provided by its C6 Curious Casefiles. It greatly increases the damage and critical hit rate of your Heizou.
While the hero Anemo has the advantage of being able to disperse with all of his attacks, his normal attacks do little personal damage. On the other hand, his elemental attack Heartstopper Strike does a lot of damage. To take full advantage of this, you'll need to charge 4 Declension stacks.
Thanks to the Paradoxical Practice passive, you get a Declension stack when Heizou triggers a Swirl. This effect can be activated every 0.1 seconds.
So for optimal rotation and maximum Anemo damage, we recommend that you start by performing a normal attack, a charged attack, the elemental rampage, and then a Heartstopper Strike.
As an added bonus, when Heizou's elemental attack hits an enemy, the elemental mastery of all characters (except Heizou) is increased by 80 points for 10 seconds with the Penetrative Reasoning passive.
With his Windmuster Kick elemental rampage, Heizou leaps into the air to deliver a powerful kick to the enemy and launch a vacuum bomb. It explodes on impact and creates a whirlwind that sucks in enemies. If they are affected by the Hydro, Pyro, Cryo or Electro element, the ability deals damage from that element.
Nevertheless, Heizou's pull (even with his C2) is not comparable to Venti's, Kazuha's or even Sucrose's and needs to be well placed to be effective. Ideally, raise all 3 of Heizou's abilities to level 8.
You can assign two types of builds to Shikanoin Heizou: a build where you focus on his elemental mastery in order to achieve maximum damage with elemental reactions or a build where you increase his ATK, his hit rate and critical damage. It is this configuration which will allow him to carry out the most damage in the majority of the cases.
In this guide we reveal the best weapons and artifacts to equip on Heizou in Genshin Impact.
For an offensive equipment, you can choose the following weapons:
The best artifact set to equip on Heizou in Genshin Impact is the 4-piece Viridescent Venerer set. In addition to increasing Anemo damage by 15%, it increases Swirl damage by 60% and lowers the elemental resistance of enemies by 40% for 10 seconds depending on the elemental type of the Swirl. With this trick, you can greatly increase the damage of Heizou and your other characters.
If you play it with another Anemo character already equipped with this set, you can choose two Anemo coins and two artifact coins that increase ATK by 18%, such as Gladiator's Finale or Shimenawa's Reminiscence.
When it comes to stats, you have several choices. You can focus on an attack/damage and critical strike set or elemental mastery.
For secondary statistics:
To raise Heizou to level 80+ in Genshin Impact, you will need the following resources:
In Genshin Impact, Heizou will perform mostly in teams with fast rotations. He will then be used to perform Swirls, boost damage with his Viridescent Venerer artifact set, and perform high damage with his elemental attack.
You can play it in many teams such as :
Heizou is one of the smallest male characters. He was born on July 24, and although he seems relatively young, he is already considered the best detective of the Tenryou commission.
That's it for our tips and tricks in this Heizou from Genshin Impact guide. While he is a very good DPS burst, he will be less effective as a support than Kazuha or even Sucrose, who boost the elemental attacks of the characters in your team considerably. On the other hand, Heizou can cause a lot of damage. As a bonus, he is particularly fun to play. While it doesn't revolutionize the RPG, it will allow you to vary your teams and take advantage of a powerful 4-star hero. He is without a doubt one of the best 4-star characters in Inazuma.
