In Genshin Impact, Venti is known for wandering the streets of Monstadt and playing music to the people, before stopping off at the local tavern for a glass of dandelion wine. This whimsical character performs strong ranged attacks and uses anemo skills to suspend enemies in mid-air.
Our Genshin Impact Venti build guide will assist you in finding the best weapons and artifacts for the five-star character, as well as provide information on his active and passive skills. Although Venti can dish out some decent DPS, we recommend using him as a support character, unless you’re in desperate need of an anemo damage dealer.

The best Genshin Impact Venti build
As mentioned above, we recommend using Venti as a support character. You’ll want to use weapons and artifacts that lower the cooldown time of his elemental burst skill in order to whip up some powerful storms.
Which weapon should you use?
We’ve picked out two weapons that are perfect for a Venti support build.
|The Stringless||Increases elemental skill and elemental burst damage by 24%|
|Elegy for the End||Increases elemental mastery by 60. When elemental skills or bursts hit enemies, you gain a Sigil of Remembrance. The sigil can be triggered every 0.2 seconds even when the character is not on the field. When you earn four Sigils of Remembrance, they will be consumed and nearby party members will gain the Millennial Movement: Farewell Song effect for 12 seconds. this effect increases elemental mastery by 100 and increases attack by 20%|
Which artifact set should you use?
Both artifact sets we’ve chosen work great when using Venti as a support character. Feel free to equip a full set or just two of each for some great results.
|Viridescent Venerer||Two equipped: 15% anemo damage bonus
Four equipped: Increases swirl damage by 60%. Decreases the opponent’s elemental resistance to the swirl element by 40% for ten seconds
