Genshin Impact Faruzan
Genshin’s Faruzan is a four-star anemo bow wielder. She best suits the role of sub-DPS support, with skills that decrease enemy anemo resistance and boost ally anemo damage. As such, she’s a high utility support for other anemo characters, especially Genshin Impact’s Wanderer. She also fit the role of a strong dedicated support for Genshin Impact’s Xiao at C6.
The best Genshin Faruzan weapon is Elegy for the End, as it offers a significant boost to her energy recharge and elemental mastery. Its skill also works well with her kit, as she can trigger it even when she’s off the field through her polyhedrons, and it buffs her allies’ attack and elemental mastery when she gathers four sigils.
Skyward Harp is also a popular choice for Faruzan, boosting her crit rate and crit damage through its base stat and skill. However, its skill isn’t as useful if you’re primarily using her as a quickswap or off-field support.
Alternatively, Favonius Warbow is a much more affordable option which can still pack a good punch and, in some situations, goes toe to toe with Skyward Harp. It serves well to help with Faruzan’s energy issues, as it boosts her energy recharge and allows her to regenerate elemental particles on hit. This is especially useful for Xiao teams, as it increases Faruzan’s ability to battery him.
|Weapon||Effect||How to obtain|
|Elegy for an End||Base stat: energy recharge
Skill: increases elemental mastery by 60. When the wielder’s elemental skills or bursts hit opponents, the wielder gains one Sigil of Remembrance. This effect can trigger every 0.2 seconds, even if the wielder is not on the field. When you possess four Sigils of Remembrance, you consume all of them, providing nearby party members with the Millennial Movement: Farewell Song effect for 12 seconds. This effect increases elemental mastery by 100 and attack by 20%. Once this effect triggers, you can’t gain Sigils of Remembrance for 20 seconds.
|Skyward Harp||Base stat: crit rate
Skill: increases crit damage by 20%. Hits have a 60% chance to inflict a small AoE attack, dealing 125% physical attack damage. Can only occur once every four seconds
|Favonius Warbow||Base stat: energy recharge
Skill: crit hits have a 60% chance to generate a small amount of elemental particles, which regenerate six energy for the character. This can only occur once every 12 seconds
Faruzan is a prime holder for either Viridescent Venerer or Noblesse Oblige if no one else on your team is using these sets. Both offer extremely useful team-wide buffs, though they don’t stack.
If someone else on your team is holding Viridescent Venerer or Noblesse Oblige, Tenacity of the Milelith or Emblem of Severed Fate are another two great options for Faruzan, depending on your team comp and how you intend to use her.

After a short delay, this effect expires, unleashing a vortex that deals AoE anemo damage and pulls nearby objects and opponents in. If the Hurricane Arrow doesn’t hit any opponents or characters, it creases a Pressurized Collapse effect at its point of impact. The Vortex damage is considered elemental skill damage
