How to get Kaveh in Genshin Impact?

If you're still wondering how to unlock Kaveh, look no further. You can only get this 4-star character at Gacha, especially on the 3.6 character event banner. Although you can claim him on standard and weapon banners, the chances are slim. Your best chance of getting him is when Kaveh is on the event banner, making him the rate-up character.

Kaveh's constellations are exemplary, to say the least, as all of them synergize well with his kit. Kaveh's C1 constellation provides more survivability in terms of triggering Dendro Cores, while his C2 does increase his normal attack speed, which is not beneficial for him in Bloom teams. His C4 is his best constellation regarding Bloom damage, as it buffs its damage whenever Kaveh triggers a Dendro Core.

Kaveh’s C6 urther increases his overall DPS as it deals an area of effect Dendro Damage whenever his normal attacks hit under his Elemental Burst that causes any Dendro Cores to explode immediately.

How to play Kaveh in Genshin Impact ?

Kaveh is an on-Field Dendro character that triggers Dendro Cores in Bloom or Hyperbloom teams. His playstyle mainly focuses on making the Dendro Cores explode with Kaveh’s Elemental Skill, Artistic Ingenuity. His elemental burst is his bread and butter, as it buffs the damage of the explosion of Dendro Cores while also healing him due to one of his passive talents, An Architect’s Undertaking.

On-field Bloom Kaveh DPS

In this Genshim Impact Kaveh guide, we’ll tackle one of his playstyles, on which you focus on triggering Dendro Cores with his Elemental Skill, Artistic Ingenuity, as it scans Dendro Cores created around Kaveh and immediately makes them explode which also increases the explosion damage of each triggered Dendro Core by his Elemental Skill, thanks to his Elemental Burst, Painted Dome.

Genshin Impact Kaveh elemental skill

Kaveh’s elemental burst, Painted Dome, is his bread and butter for buffing his damage for Bloom teams. It provides increased Resistance to interruption, increased Bloom damage, and normal, charged, and plunging attack damage while infusing Dendro into all his normal attacks.

Nevertheless, Kaveh’s first ascension passive synergizes well with Bloom teams as the on-field Bloom driver. It is because when the Dendro Core damage hits Kaveh, his first Ascension Passive, An Architect’s Undertaking, heals him to 300% of his Elemental Mastery. This Passive is excellent for active characters in Bloom teams, such as Kaveh, as the Dendro Cores can sometimes hurt, especially in large numbers.

Spread Kaveh DPS

In this alternative Kaveh playstyle, Kaveh is the on-field character when dealing Spread damage to the enemy using his Dendro-infused normal attacks. And suppose you didn’t know what Spread damage is. In that case, Spread damage is the byproduct of further Dendro applications right after triggering Quicken, which can be triggered by Dendro and Electro elements.

Genshin Impact Kaveh Normal Attacks

If you wish to use this playstyle for Kaveh, you should also prioritize leveling up his normal attacks, aside from his Elemental Burst, as it can be infused with Dendro damage. Leveling up his normal attacks further increases its damage multiplier, thus increasing his Spread damage using his infused normal attacks.

You should also focus on getting characters that are beneficial for him in terms of Spread damage, like Fischl or Lisa, for free-to-play options. These characters are some of the best Electro damage users, even for a F2P option.

What's the best equipment for Kaveh?

In order to figure what’s the best equipment for Kaveh, we must determine what main stats and talent that should be considered on his artifact sets depending on the playstyle of players who want to play Kaveh, which includes being the on-field Bloom DPS or Main Spread DPS.

Beacon of the Reed Sea
Beacon of the Reed Sea (5★)
Skyward Pride
Skyward Pride (5★)
  • Beacon of the Reed Sea: This is one of the best Claymorefor Kaveh, mainly for its Critical Rate substat and the attack buff that it provides.Also, remember that the Attack buff will only be active if the holding character takes damage. And with Kaveh, knowing that Bloom also hits the active character, it’s easier to procure this weapon talent with him;
  • Skyward Pride: If you’re in need of energy recharge with a bit of extra damage, Skyward Pride is the best for you. Skyward Pride’s huge base attack benefits Kaveh too, for his normal attack damage, not to mention the vacuum waves it produces that add up to his overall DPS.

  • 420,000 Mora and 168 Mourning Flowers, which you can find in the desert of Sumeru desert. Locate them with the help of interactive map of Sumeru;

What are the best teams for Kaveh?

Genshin Impact Kaveh is a character who dramatically excels in most Dendro teams, mainly Bloom and Spread. Kaveh’s Ascension Passive, which heals him whenever he takes friendly Bloom damage, enables him to be the on-field character for Bloom teams.


According to our Genshin Impact Kaveh guide, he does well on Bloom teams, which is why we created this team. Nilou and Kokomi are great at applying Hydro consistently, which synergizes well with Nahida because she, on the other hand, can also constantly apply Dendro, which, if combined, makes Dendro Cores. Nahida can also boost the team's Elemental Mastery, further increasing Dendro Core damage with her Elemental Burst, Illusory Heart. However, even though he didn't create the previously mentioned Dendro Cores, Kaveh can still boost the bloom damage with his Elemental Burst and trigger Dendro Cores with his Elemental Skill.


In order to have a Spread reaction, we must first combine Electro and Dendro, which can lead to a Quicken reaction. This Elemental Reaction buffs Electro and Dendro damage to the enemy in the Quicken State, which is why Fischl and Nahida re essential when building a Spread team on Kaveh. With Nahida's burst, all characters will have additional Elemental Mastery, which is beneficial for team comps that mainly rely on Elemental Reactions to deal damage like Spread. Fischl'selemental skill and passive talent also provide a generous amount of electrical damage, while Zhongli 's shield shreds all elemental resistance, including Dendro Resistance. This resistance shred can further increase if Nahida equips 4-piece Deepwood Memories.

How old is Kaveh in Genshin Impact ?

Although the game hasn’t said anything officially about his age, we know Kaveh has graduated from Kshahrewar, an Academy focusing on Architecture. With this knowledge, we can estimate that Kaveh is around 26 and 29 years old, the average age a young lad can be after graduating. Additionally, Kaveh’s birthdate, according to the game, is July 9.

Kaveh's birthday Genshin Impact (age)

Kaveh is a well-known Sumeru architect who graduated with honors from Kshahrewar. Kaveh is an outspoken supporter of the arts and values aesthetics and creative maturity in almost everything, including architecture, interior design, mechanics, and even narrative.

In contrast to Alhaitham's logic, Kaveh operates first and primarily on what he believes to be correct.

And that's all there is to it. You've reached the end of our Genshin Impact Kaveh guide. Overall, Kaveh is only a B-tier on-field DPS because he needs a lot of good timing, rotation and other characters to buff him to reach his full potential as a Dendro Reaction DPS. To cut a long story short, Kaveh has a mid to high-skill ceiling. For other Dendro characters, check out our Baizhu guide, which can also be great when paired with Kaveh.

Yaya Yaya would never have spent a single cent on a mobile game. At least, that's what the legend says.
