Genshin Impact Fischl build, banner, and skills

Genshin Impact's Fischl, Prinzessin der Verurteilung, has descended up this land, and we're here to help you understand her skills, best build, and more

Genshin Impact's Fischl shooting her bow

Always accompanied by the night raven Oz, Genshin Impact’s Fischl calls herself Prinzessin der Verurteilung and claims to come from a land far beyond Teyvat. Fischl is currently an investigator in the Adventurers’ Guild, and on her adventures, she comes up with zany theories which often turn out to be true.

Our Genshin Impact Fischl guide will help you master the electro bow-wielding character and provide details on suitable weapons and artifacts for her to use. We’ve also put together a list that includes every item you need in order to ascend Fischl all the way to rank six, as well as a guide to each of her constellations.

If you’re on the lookout for other powerful characters, head on over our Genshin Impact tier list, and for some extra primogems, we’ve got a handy Genshin Impact codes guide. We can also help out with other popular characters. Here’s everything you need to know about Genshin Impact’s Xiao and Genshin Impact’s Hu Tao.

When’s the next Genshin Impact Fischl banner?

Fischl is always available on the standard wish banner, and she routinely appears in the Paimon’s Bargain shop. You can also get a free copy of Fischl through the Summertime Odyssey event. Read more in our Genshin Impact events guide.

We’ll let you know when she’s next featured on a limited Genshin Impact banner.

The best Genshin Impact Fischl build

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.

What is the best Genshin Impact Fischl weapon?

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.

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.

Weapon Effect
Aqua Simulacra Bonus stat: crit damage +19.2%
Skill: increases HP by 16%. When there are opponents nearby, Fischl’s damage is increased by 20%. This effect takes effect whether the character is on-field or not
The Stringless Bonus stat: elemental mastery +36
Skill: increases elemental skill and burst damage by 24%

What are the best Genshin Impact Fischl artifacts?

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.

Artifact set Effect
Thundering Fury Two equipped: Electro damage increased by 15%
Four equipped: Increases damage caused by overload, electro-charged, and superconduct by 40%. Triggering these effects also decreases elemental skill cooldown by one second. This can only occur once every 0.8 seconds
Gladiator’s Finale Two equipped: Attack increased by 18%
Four equipped: If the wielder of this artifact set uses a sword, claymore, or polearm, their normal attack damage is increased by 35%
Gambler Two equipped: increases elemental skill damage by 20%
Four equipped: defeating an enemy has a 100% chance to remove Fischl’s elemental skill cooldown. Can only occur once every 15 seconds
