Genshin Impact's Aloy, Raiden Shogun, and Sara against a white background

Our Genshin Impact tier list will help you decide which of the various Genshin Impact characters to play in this enormous, open-world RPG on mobile. There are actually a considerable number of Genshin Impact characters, so you likely won’t know where to start when picking the ultimate character to play. Well, that’s exactly where we come in.

We’ve spent a bunch of time with each of the Genshin Impact characters, ranking them against each other in numerous different areas to come up with this Genshin Impact tier list. There are also rumours of new characters on the way, and we plan to update this guide with them as soon as they’re available. So, as a result, we recommend that you bookmark this list and keep checking back to keep on top of the latest changes.

If you’re looking for other games to play, we thoroughly recommend checking out our best Android games and best iOS games lists, which feature the best that mobile has to offer. We also have a Genshin Impact codes list and Genshin Impact update guide.
