What is the best Kazuha build?

Kazuha is best suited to a sub DPS or support role. If you use Kazuha in a sub DPS role, we recommend putting him in a team with Bennett.

The best weapon for a support or sub DPS Kazuha is Freedom-Sworn. We recommend the Skyward Blade if you haven’t managed to get your hands on his best weapon.

Weapon Effect
Freedom-Sworn Damage is increased by 10%. Once every 0.5 seconds, when you trigger an elemental reaction, you will gain a Sigil of Rebellion. When you reach two sigils, they are consumed and increase all nearby party members attack by 20% and normal, charged, and plunging attack damage by 16% for 12 seconds. Once triggered, you won’t gain sigils again for 20 seconds
Skyward Blade Crit rate is increased by 4%. You gain Skypiercing Might when an elemental burst is used, this increases movement speed by 10%, attack speed by 10%, and the damage of normal and charged attacks by 20% for 12 seconds


The best artifacts for Kazuha are items from the Viridescent Venerer set.

Artifact set Effect
Viridescent Venerer Two equipped: Anemo damage is increased by 15%
Four equipped: Swirl damage is increased by 60%. Your opponent’s elemental resistance is decreased by 40% to the element infused in the swirl for ten seconds

What are Kazuha’s skills?

Active skills:

Skill Effect
Garyu Bladework Perform up to five strikes
Garyu Bladework (charged) Consumes stamina to perform two rapid strikes
Garyu Bladework (plunging) Plunges from mid-air, dealing AoE damage on impact
Midare Ranzan:
If Kazuha is in mid-air due to the effects of Chihayaburu, plunging damage is converted to anemo damage and will create a wind tunnel that pulls nearby enemies in
Chihayaburu (press) A rush of wind pulls enemies and objects towards Kazuha before launching enemies into the air, dealing anemo damage and lifting Kazuha up into a wind current
Chihayaburu (hold) Kazuha charges up Chihayaburu, dealing anemo damage over a larger AoE than the press version
Kazuha Slash Deals AoE anemo damage and leaves behind an ‘Autumn Whirlwind’ that periodically deals AoE anemo damage. If the whirlwind comes into contact with cryo, electro, hydro, or pyro, it will deal additional elemental damage of that type

Passive skills:

Skill Effect
Soumon Swordsmanship (unlocked at ascension one) If Chihayaburu comes into contact with cryo/electro/hydro/pyro while being used, it will absorb the element. If Midare Ranzan is used before the effect expires, it will deal 200% additional damage of that elemental type
Poetics of Fuubutsu (unlocked at ascension four) Upon triggering swirl, Kazuha will grant his teammates a 0.04% elemental damage boost for every point of elemental mastery he possesses for eight seconds
Cloud Strider (unlocked automatically) Decreases stamina consumption when sprinting by 20%


Here’s every perk Kazuha receives as you level up his constellations.
