Here’s everything you need to know about Genshin Impact’s Fischl.
|Aqua Simulacra (five-star)
|The Stringless (four-star)
|Best artifact set
|Artifact set substitutes
We recommend building Fischl as an off-field sub-DPS and battery. Her best weapon in this role is Aqua Simulacra as it buffs her elemental skill. Her best artifact set by far is a four-piece set of Golden Troupe. Make sure to build her with plenty of attack, elemental mastery, electro damage bonus, and crit.
Fischl is an amazing sub-DPS and battery, capable of providing plenty of energy particles to even non-electro characters. Her companion Oz acts as a super handy turret for constant electro application, and as such she excels at triggering elemental reactions, even from off-field.
She has high attack speed and both her skill and burst remain active when you swap to a different character. Her one downside is that she requires multiple constellations to truly shine, but as a four-star character that appears in the Paimon’s bargains shop, she’s not too difficult to obtain. While Fischl can slot into a main DPS role, our recommendations here are based exclusively on using her as a sub-DPS as that is the role we feel she excels in the most.
Currently, the best weapon for Fischl is Aqua Simulacra, due to its skill increasing Oz’s damage even when she’s off the field, which perfectly compliments her quick rotation playstyle.
Fontaine gave us another great five-star option for a ranged-focused Fischl in The First Great Magic. It shares Aqua Simulacra’s crit damage bonus stat and its skill grants her extra attack buffs depending on how electro-heavy your team is. This weapon does require Fischl to be on-field more often though.
The Stringless is also a great four-star, more affordable option, increasing Fischl’s elemental mastery to buff her elemental reactions, and boosting her skill and burst damage.

As of update 4.0, Fischl’s best-in-slot artifact set is Golden Troupe. This set is all about buffing her elemental skill damage and it even provides bonus buffs when Fischl is off-field. It’s like Hoyoverse made this set for her!
Thundering Fury is a good choice for Fischl, as it increases her electro damage and the impact of her elemental reactions. You can also mix two Thundering Fury with two Gambler or two Gladiator’s Finale to reap the benefits of the two-equipped buffs.

Fischl works wonderfully as a battery, so she can slot into a whole range of team comps with her quick swap playstyle. She’s also great for electro application, so synergizes with a range of elemental reaction comps.
Here are a couple of examples of a strong Fischl team comp:
Fischl’s elemental skill makes her a great off-field electro-application unit, so make sure to use Oz!
|Normal attack: Bolts of Downfall
|Normal: Performs five shots
Charged: Performs a powerful aimed shot. When fully charged, the arrow will deal electro damage
Plunging: Deals AoE damage on impact with the ground
|Elemental skill: Nightrider
|Press: Summons Oz to deal AoE electro damage. For the skill’s duration, Oz continuously attacks enemies
Hold: Adjust Oz’s summon location. Press again during the ability’s duration to summon Oz to Fischl’s side
|Elemental burst: Midnight Phantasmagoria
|Fischl takes on Oz’s form, increasing her movement speed and striking nearby enemies with lightning. Oz remains on the battlefield when this ends
|Hit Oz with a fully charged Bolts of Downfall and he will deal AoE damage equal to 152.7% of the arrow’s damage
|If your active character triggers an electro elemental reaction when Oz is on the field, the enemy receives electro damage equal to 80% of Fischl’s attack
|Expeditions in Mondstadt take 25% less time
You can level up Fischl’s constellations after receiving her as a duplicate when making a wish. Here’s every bonus you receive when activating them.
