Kazuha Genshin Impact Guide

Kazuha Genshin Impact Guide

Kazuha has been long sought after since his first banner, and for many is a must-have pick for any Genshin Impact team. In this Kazuha Genshin Impact Guide I will be taking you over some of the best builds, best weapons, best artifact sets and best team compositions to make your Kazuha well… the best!

Genshin Impact started in 2020 with a roster of a couple of playable characters and now features more than 40 characters. Each character possesses unique abilities that can be game-changing in dire circumstances. On top of the character’s unique abilities, they all have their own background stories that connect players emotionally with them. While some players find themselves associated with a Genshin character’s background story, others like to play them because of their voice actors.

As players start to run through the game, they realize they need to level up their favourite characters and invest time in learning about their game mechanics. This eventually helps them clear the content game poses and unique events that run throughout game updates.

Since its launch, I’ve played Genshin Impact and still learning new things about characters. Keeping yourself up to date with in-game concepts like elemental reactions, team compositions, and weapons helps a lot when it comes to end-game content like the Spiral Abyss.

While characters have their roles, some characters shine in their dedicated roles. In this Kazuha Guide, I’ll be going over one such character who is one of the best support characters in the game and brings immense potential to the table. Kaedahara Kazuha! He is a wandering samurai with a gentle heart and a master of his art.

Kazuha: Character Details

kazuha genshin character

Kaedehara Kazuha is an anemo sword character who has allegiance to the crux fleet under captain Beidou’s command. Kazuha has a calm, modest, and intelligent personality that you can observe in quests related to him. He likes to enjoy peaceful locations and holds friendships in high regard. Although he’s a samurai, he has all qualities you can expect from a gentleman.

I remember there was a short cutscene in the Inazuma trailer where Beidou and Kazuha came in to support Gorou in a fight, and Kazuha dived into it without giving a second thought. Keeping friendship in high regard, he didn’t hesitate to go on a one-on-one with Raiden Shogun later on in the story.

So far, Kazuha has only had one promoted banner that ran in June 2021. I couldn’t get him, so I’m highly optimistic that Hoyoverse may run his banner in the future. I’ve been saving primogems to get him because of his potential among one of the best supports.

I’ve been stacking up resources to ascend him over level 80 and invest in his talents. Kazuha’s ascension stat is elemental mastery that scales up to 115 at level 90. This helps him to provide an extra elemental damage bonus to team members on a full elemental mastery build. Here’s a quick overview of his ascension materials and talent materials.

kazuha ascension materials

Ascension Material
Treasure Hoarder Insignia = 18 Vayuda Turquoise Sliver = 1 Mora = 1.6 + million


Marionette Core = 46

Silver Raven Insignia = 30 Vayuda Turquoise Fragment = 9
Golden Raven Insignia = 36 Vayuda Turquoise Chunk = 9
Sea Ganoderma = 168 Vayuda Turquoise Gemstone = 6


Material for Single Talent
Treasure Hoarder Insignia = 6 Teachings of Diligence = 3 Mora = 1.6 + million
Silver Raven Insignia = 22 Guide to Diligence = 21
Golden Raven Insignia = 31 Philosophies of Diligence = 38
Gilded Scale = 6 Crown of Insight = 1


Additionally, you need 415+ Hero’s Wits and 1.6+ million Mora to level up Kazuha to level 90, and this may take you a few weeks to farm because of the resin cap. I suggest you pre-farm for materials before investing in Kazuha extensively and not worry about farming after wishing for him. 


Normal Attack: Garyuu Bladework

Performs up to 5 rapid strikes with the sword

Kazuha Normal Attack Garyuu Bladework

Charged Attack

Consumes a specific quantity of Stamina to unleash two rapid sword strikes

kazuha charged attack

Plunging Attack:

Plunges from mid-air to hit the ground below, damaging enemies and dealing area of effect damage upon impact. If Chihayaburu triggers this plunging attack, it will be converted to a plunging attack: Midare Ranzan.

When a plunging attack is performed using the bonuses of the elemental skill Chihayaburu, Plunging ATK damage is converted to Anemo DMG. It will create a small wind tunnel via a secret blade technique that pulls nearby objects and opponents.

Unless you want to play Kazuha as a physical damage dealer like one of my friend plays, you should avoid leveling up his regular attack. However, the plunging attack Midare Ranzan that deals Anemo DMG is affected by the level of this talent.

So, if you want to have some extra anemo AMG in your kit, you should level up this talent. But, make sure to level up other skills before utilizing resources in a normal attack because that damage boost isn’t significant.

Elemental Skill: Chihayaburu

Chihayaburu Kazuha

Unleashes a secret technique as fierce as the rushing wind that pulls things and enemies towards Kazuha’s current location before launching enemies within the area of effect, dealing anemo DMG, and lifting Kaedehara Kazuha into the air on a rushing gust of wind.

In 10 s of remaining airborne after casting Chihayaburu, Kazuha can unleash a powerful Plunging attack known as Midare Ranzan which will deal AoE anemo DMG.

Press – Cooldown 6 seconds

kazuha press

Kazuha can use it in mid-air

Hold – Cooldown 9 seconds

kazuha hold ability

Charges up before unleashing more significant Anemo damage over a larger area of effect.

Plunging attack: Midare Ranzan

When a plunging attack is performed using the effects of the elemental skill, plunging ATK damage is converted to anemo DMG.

Kaedehara Kazuha creates a small wind tunnel via a secret blade technique that pulls nearby objects and opponents on landing.

Midare Ranzan’s damage is considered plunging ATK damage.

Midare Ranzan

Kazuha’s kit also caters to crowd control abilities that can help you tackle lightweight enemies. But I shall disclose that the crowd control isn’t as massive as in Venti’s elemental burst.

On tapping the elemental skill, Kazuha quickly launches himself in the air and has an air cushion around him while gliding down. You can perform Midare Ranzan or plunging attack while in the air, which deals anemo DMG to enemies on the ground. The press version has a shorter cooldown time and lesser damage than the hold version.

On holding the skill for a short period, Kazuha charges up and launches himself into the air and can perform Midare Ranzan. Both of these versions of his elemental skill have different damage multipliers that you can expect. But make sure to level up his standard attack talent to see an increase in damage to Midare Ranzan.

A few things more about the skill are that you can swirl an element in his elemental skill, and after the skill ends, a small vortex is created that can pull enemies towards it. The vortex isn’t as massive as the one Venti creates with his burst but good enough to pull in lightweight enemies like hilichurls and treasure hoarders.

Elemental Burs: Kazuha Slash

kazuha slash

The signature technique of Kazuha’s self-styled bladework – a single slash that strikes with the force of the first winds of Autumn, dealing AoE anemo DmG.

The blade’s passage will leave behind a field “Autumn Whirlwind” that timely deals AoE anemo DMG to opponents within its range.

Elemental Absorption

If Autumn’s whirlwind comes into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro, it will deal additional elemental DMG of that type.

Elemental absorption may only occur once peruse.

  • Duration – 8 seconds | Cooldown – 15 seconds | Energy cost – 60
  • Talent level-up priority: Kazuha Slash > Chihayaburu > Normal attack
Elemental Absorption

Kazuha’s elemental burst deals area-wide anemo DMG on the first slash and leaves behind a field that can infuse elements within itself to deal additional elemental DMG.

His burst is helpful if you want to swirl an element in an area to apply infused elements to enemies. Suppose you are fighting Electro lecters and able to infuse pyro or hydro element in the elemental burst. Then you can break down their shield much faster and have more straightforward gameplay.

Although he may infuse some elements before others due to their priority in reactions, Pyro infusion is prioritized over hydro, electro, and cryo. But according to my experience in the abyss, swirling a specific element requires good timing and positioning on the battlefield because of multiple enemies and elements around you.

Overall, Kazuha’s elemental burst will help you deal with Anemo DMG and infused elemental damage in an area of effect. This allows you to cover a lot of enemies around you and crowd control them simultaneously. Swirling helps to shred elemental resistance from enemies if you have Viridescent Venerer artifact and pump up your elemental damage potential.

Passive Talents

Cloud Strider

Cloud Strider kazuha

Decreases sprinting stamina consumption for your party members by 20%. Not stackable with passive talents that provide the same effects

Kazuha is one of the most recommended characters in exploration because of his ability to position himself higher and reach trickier places. Catching seelies on higher places or climbing a cliff, you can use his elemental skill to boost yourself and reach the places quickly. With this passive unlocked, you also get a reduction in stamina consumption rate that can help you to reduce the draining of your stamina bar.

Soumon Swordsmanship

Soumon Swordsmanship

Suppose Chihayaburu comes into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro when cast. In that case, Chihayaburu will absorb that element.

If plunging attack: Midare Ranzan is used before the buff expires, it will deal an additional 200% ATK of the absorbed elemental type as damage. This will be considered plunging attack DMG.

Elemental absorption may only occur once per use of elemental skill Chihayaburu.

Unlocking this passive will help you deal extra damage while using Kazuha’s elemental skill. Remember that Midare Ranzan will deal damage that will scale with Kazuha’s normal attack, so you can prioritize that if you want to benefit from this passive.

Elemental absorption is also decent if you want to apply elemental to enemies or swirl to shred elemental resistance from them to deal extra damage. Kazuha’s passive is pretty decent in combat, and he turns into excellent support for the team.

Poetics of Fuubutsu

Upon triggering a swirl reaction, Kazuha will buff all team members a 0.04% elemental damage bonus to the element absorbed in swirl reaction for every point of Elemental Mastery he has for 8 s. Bonuses for different elements obtained through this method can co-exist

One of the best passive abilities in the game when it comes to supporting characters. Kazuha boosts the elemental damage bonus of party members with a swirl that scales off his elemental mastery. This passive is one of the significant reasons full elemental mastery build is recommended on Kazuha to boost his elemental damage buff potential.

The cherry on the top is that you can trigger this passive even off-field, which means the passive will be in effect even if you swap to another character. And the passive will act on different elements to provide that element’s damage bonus to team members. Combining this passive with Viridescent Venerer turns Kazuha into monstrous support that can take your party’s damage potential to sky-high values. Keep in mind that this doesn’t work on geo characters because Viridescent Venerer doesn’t apply to the geo element.

Besides Geo, swirling other elements will skyrocket your damage numbers with additional elemental damage bonuses. The low cooldown on Kazuha’s elemental skill and elemental burst to help out with swirls makes Kazuha one of the best anemo support characters in the game.


C1: Scarlet Hills

kazuha Scarlet Hills

Decreases Chihayaburu’s cooldown by 10 %. Using Kazuha Slash resets the cooldown of Chihayaburu.

While the cooldown isn’t significant for Kazuha’s elemental skill, the reset effect is what you are looking for. Having tried C1 Kazuha, I would say it helps you to generate more energy particles because, with this constellation, you have two charges on elemental skill.

You can quickly build a complete elemental mastery build on Kazuha and complement energy generation with additional energy particles generated with elemental skill.

C2: Yamaarashi Tailwind


The Autumn Whirlwind field area created by Kazuha slash has the following effects:

  • Increases Kaedehara Kazuha’s elemental mastery by 200 points
  • Increases the elemental mastery of team members within the field by 200 points.

The elemental mastery boost of this constellation does not stack.

I don’t have Kazuha on my main account, but I’m saving intertwined fates just in case he re-runs shortly. In this constellation, you get a fair boost in Kazuha’s elemental mastery that can help you achieve an extra elemental damage bonus. While his burst is active, other team members will obtain elemental mastery that will help to increase reaction damage potential.

This constellation can be a good stop if you are a free-to-play player and want to save up primogems, as C2 Kazuha is quite a damage boost when it comes to supporting characters. Amplifying reactions’ damage will go over the roof, and you will see massive damage numbers with a complete elemental mastery build Kazuha.

C3: Maple Monogatari

Kauzha Maple Monogatari

Increases the level of Chihayaburu by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15

The constellation adds up to three extra talent levels to Kazuha’s elemental skill. You can expect to see better Skill damage, which is quite lovely to fill in a bit of DPS loss.

C4: Oozora Genpou

Oozora Genpou Constellations

When Kazuha’s energy is lower than 45, obtained the following effects:

  • Pressing or holding elemental skill Chihayaburu regenerates 3 or 4 energy for Kazuha, respectively
  • When gliding, Kazuha regenerates 2 energy per second

This constellation will be better if you don’t have much energy recharge substats on your artifact pieces. By triggering a swirl reaction, you can recharge your burst with elemental skill and boost the elemental damage bonus. When traveling in the overworld, you have to kill enemies to generate energy particles from them to recharge your burst.

Unlocking this constellation gives you auto energy recharge for your elemental burst that happens just by gliding. You can perform gliding the spiral abyss if you use Kazuha’s elemental skill on top of Geo constructs to reach a certain height or usually tap his elemental skill.

I recommend you pay attention to your surroundings and the types of enemies you are dealing with because I’ve observed that some enemies change their attack patterns when Kazuha uses his elemental skill.

C5: Wisdom of Bansei

Wisdom of Bansei Constellation

Increases the talent level of Kazuha Slash by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.

Better damage on your elemental burst and additional elemental damage along with it. You can choose to crown your elemental skill and elemental burst after reaching this constellation if you love to play Kazuha.

C6: Crimson Momiji

Kazuha Crimson Momiji

After using Chihayaburu or Kazuha slash, Kazuha gains an anemo infusion for 5 s. Additionally, each point of elemental mastery will increase the damage dealt by Kaedehara Kazuha’s normal, charged, and plunging attack by 0.2 %

This constellation is quite the opposite of what you expect from a support Kazuha because, at this point, you are acting as the primary damage dealer. More precisely, an anemo DMG dealer. After using either of his elemental skill or elemental burst, Kazuha will get anemo infusion on his attacks. Also, you are getting a multiplier on the damage that scales with his overall elemental mastery.

Even if you build Kazuha as a support, this constellation won’t hurt your playstyle because it’s buffing up his damage. While you can play him as the primary damage dealer with this constellation, his support role is more valuable.

Specific food

All-Weather Beauty

Dry-Braised Salted Fish

Effect: Restores 16 % of maximum HP and an additional 1,350 HP to the selected character

Recipe : Fish x 1, Salt x 1

Kazuha’s special dish helps you restore some HP, and the ingredients are also commonly available. You can keep a few of them in your inventory because there are better recovery dishes that have relatively simple ingredients.

Unless you plan to use this dish regularly and catch plenty of fish, I advise you to stick with the essential dishes for recovery. The best tip would be to have a good healer in your team or just re-visit the statue of seven from time to time.


5-star weapons

Freedom Sworn

Freedom sworn was featured alongside Kazuha’s promoted banner as his featured and best weapon. Freedom sworn boasts its 198 elemental mastery and 608 base attack at level 90 that can buff up Kazuha’s overall elemental mastery.

The passive allows Kazuha to boost up team members’ normal, charged, and plunge ATK damage by 16-32% and offers an increase in ATK%.

With a cooldown of 20 seconds on this passive, you have to make sure to take the benefit of buffs before the passive effect resets, as it doesn’t stack up.

Freedom sworn is an excellent choice if you are going for a total elemental mastery build Kazuha in a support role. He will help to boost up your team’s damage potential and get a boost in his elemental mastery.

Skyward Blade

Skyward Blade is an excellent weapon that can help your character get elemental burst back in several rotations. It offers a marginal 55 % energy recharge and 608 base attack at level 90 that can recharge your character’s elemental burst faster.

The passive helps increase the CRIT rate by a few percent, but that’s more like a minor addition.

The critical passive effect is when you use an elemental burst that triggers a 10 % increase in movement speed, a 10 % attack increase, and a regular and charged ATK damage increase.

The average and charged ATK damage increases according to attack, and the overall elemental burst buff has a cooldown of 12 seconds.

Mistsplitter Reforged

Mistsplitter reforged offers one of the highest base attacks among swords and CRIT damage as a secondary stat. The base attack scales to 674 and CRIT damage up to 44 % at level 90.

Also, the passive boosts elemental damage bonuses and depends on different conditions. I won’t go into intricate details, but the weapon is quite suitable if you want to deal anemo DMG with Kazuha and play him in a DPS role.

Primordial Jade Cutter

Primordial Jade cutter is a sword that features essential CRIT rate as its secondary stat and allows players to take advantage of its passive that helps to boost ATK% that scales off HP.

Additionally, the passive also increases the character’s health by a certain percentage so that your character becomes a bit tankier. You can use this weapon if you have extra rolls on HP on your artifact substats and proportionally increases overall attack based on HP.

This weapon is good if you want to make Kazuha anemo damage a dealer that can shine in the overworld, but you need to use complete elemental mastery build for the spiral abyss.

4-Star Weapons

Iron Sting

Iron sting is a craftable weapon you can forge at a blacksmith’s shop. It offers elemental mastery as its secondary stat that scales up to 165 units at level 90, and the passive helps to increase all damage by a certain percentage.

As you will deal elemental damage to the enemies, you can obtain a maximum of 2 stacks of buff lasting 6 seconds with a cooldown of 1 second for each stack.

Overall, this weapon is quite a decent choice if you want an alternative to Freedom sworn and go with a full EM build Kazuha.

Favonius Sword

The Favonius sword is one of the best swords for recharging elemental bursts. The weapon features energy recharge at its secondary stat, and the passive helps to generate energy particles on CRIT hits. Passive can proc every 12 seconds, and the cooldown time gets lower as you refine the weapon.

You can use this sword if you want to build full EM Kazuha as a support and not worry much about using energy recharge sands on the artifact. If you can manage a few energy recharge substats from artifacts, this weapon can help you spam your elemental burst and deal swirl DMG to enemies.

Sacrificial Sword

The sacrificial sword is another energy recharge sword that can help Kazuha get his burst back faster. The sword features 61% energy recharge at level 90, and the passive gives a chance to players to reset the cooldown of elemental skill.

The passive’s cooldown gets reduced at higher refinement, and players can use Kazuha’s elemental skill two times to generate more elemental particles. This is a good sword if you want to have your burst back faster and keep 100 % uptime on Kazuha’s ultimate.

Weapons Summary

If you are a free-to-play player, I assume you have a C0 Kazuha and run a complete elemental mastery build with the Viridescent Venerer artifact set. Kazuha is an awesome support character, but you may have energy recharge issues with him if you don’t have better energy recharge substats on artifact pieces.

Weapons like Skyward Blade, Sacrificial Sword, and Favonius Sword can help you reduce those requirements and keep 100 % uptime on your elemental burst.

So, if you plan to use him with other weapons that don’t feature energy recharge as a secondary stat, you should have team members that can generate energy particles for Kazuha. Sometimes, it’s better to run a 4-star weapon than a 5-star weapon in specific team compositions because of their synergy with the team.


Viridescent Venerer

Viridescent Veneer

  • 2-piece set bonus: Increases anemo DMG by 15 %
  • 4-piece set bonus: Increases swirl DMG by 60 % and decreases enemies’ elemental resistance to the element infused in the swirl by 40 % for 10 s

Viridescent Venerer is the go-to choice for most anemo characters except Xiao because of his main niche damage dealing role. This set allows Kazuha to shred elemental resistance from enemies and make them vulnerable to severe elemental damage. The 4-piece set bonus also increases swirl DMG that can suit well with a complete elemental mastery build. If you don’t know much about elemental mastery, I recommend you go over the elemental mastery guide on our site to get a firm grasp of the concept.

In a nutshell, elemental mastery plays a crucial role in teams that focus on dealing with damage with the help of elemental reactions. Amplifying reactions like vaporizing and melt’s damage can scale sky-high if you can boost up your characters’ elemental mastery.

So, even if your artifact pieces are under-levelled, having a 4-piece set bonus on Kazuha will help you to shred elemental resistance from enemies.

I would highly recommend you use this artifact set on him if you want to go with teams that can trigger massive damage dealing reactions.

2-piece Wanderer + 2-piece Emblem

Wanderer's Troupe

  • 2-piece wanderer set bonus: Increases elemental mastery by 80
  • 2-piece emblem set bonus: Increases energy recharge by 20 %

Although this artifact set wouldn’t be optimal in the longer run, you can still run this artifact set if you don’t have a complete Viridescent Venerer set.

You can equip energy recharge sands on your artifact set and get an extra energy recharge bonus from the emblem.

2-piece wanderer’s troupe set will help get you some extra elemental mastery, and you can get a little boost in Kazuha’s overall elemental mastery.

I won’t recommend you use this set, but if you don’t have any other options and want to have better energy recharge on Kazuha, you can cope with this artifact set.

Thundering Fury

Thundering Fury Genshin

2-piece set bonus: Increases electro damage by 15 %

4-piece set bonus: Increases damage caused by electro-charged, superconduct and overload reactions by 40 %. Elemental skill cooldown reduces by 1 seconds with such effects. It can occur only once every 0.8 seconds.

I learned about this set when YouTubers used Bennett’s elemental skill to break electro abyss lecters’ shields. The critical role here is a 4-piece set bonus that helps decrease elemental skill cooldown as you trigger electro reactions.

While this set isn’t the best for Kazuha, you can equip this set if you want to run teams that can help to trigger electro reactions. The gameplay would be centred around Kazuha, and you can use an extra anemo character to shred elemental resistance.

Ultimately, it depends on what approach you want to follow while building Kazuha in certain team comps.

Artifacts Summary:

The best artifact set for Kazuha would be Viridescent Venerer because of its unique 4-piece set bonus that helps shred elemental resistance.

Most of Kazuha’s support-focused abilities and even constellations are an additional buff to his support role. Other artifact sets can be equipped in niche situations, but they start to fall off when you target the end-game content like the spiral abyss.

So, I suggest you go with a complete elemental mastery built on Kazuha and look for substats like energy recharge and elemental mastery on artifact pieces. Having decent energy recharge with plenty of elemental mastery will help you bring out Kazuha’s best supporting role.

Team compositions

Vaporize – Pyro Hydro Kazuha Flex

Vaporize and reverse comes under amplifying reactions that can deal massive damage. In this team composition, you can use characters like Childe, Xingqiu, or Kokomi to apply Hydro on the enemies.

And use characters like Xiangling, Hu Tao, Diluc, or Klee to trigger vaporize or reverse-vaporize reactions. To benefit from elemental resonance, you can add extra characters like Bennett or Mona to apply additional buffs for the team.

Melt – Cryo Pyro Kazuha Flex

Characters like Ganyu, Chongyun, or Rosaria to effectively trigger reverse-melt or melt reactions that can deal massive damage to the enemies. I remembered using Ganyu, Bennett, Xiangling, and Kazuha against a perpetual mechanical array and was able to deal over 100k charged ATK damage with melt reaction. You may run into energy recharge issues with Xiangling, which can be taken care of if you use a 4-piece emblem of severed fate artifact set on her.

Mono-Element – Kazuha Anemo/Flex Flex Flex

The mono-element team focuses on dealing with a single type of damage to the enemies. An example of it can be Bennett, Kazuha, Klee, and Xiangling, with optimal energy recharge to keep the rotation going on.

You can also opt for double anemo and double pyro characters to benefit from both pyro and anemo elemental resonance.

The key here is to maximise elemental damage bonus with Kazuha and swirl the element you are using on your characters. Remember that anemo cannot swirl the geo element, so using a mono-geo element team with Kazuha won’t produce massive results.

My favourite mono-element teams are Raiden Shogun, Kazuha, Bennett, and Sara because of their immense potential to boost Raiden Shogun’s burst damage. 

Freeze – Hydro Cryo Kazuha Flex

Characters like Ayaka, Chongyun, or Kaeya, who can benefit from Blizzard strayer artifact, can deal massive damage in freeze team compositions. You can chip in extra cryo character to take benefit of cryo elemental resonance, which will boost your CRIT rate.

Ensure that you are not shattering enemies as that will damage them physically. Teams with Ayaka, Ayato, Kazuha, and Shenhe can help you clear even the tankiest enemies in the game.

Electro-Charged – Hydro Kazuha Electro Flex

Electro-charged teams are easily viable if you use Hydro characters that can cover many areas like Childe, Ayato, or Kokomi. As for electro characters, Beidou and Fischl are among the top picks that can help you apply the element to multiple enemies.

Electro-charged teams can both be good and bad at the same time as you risk getting stun-locked if the reaction happens to you. So, keep in mind to avoid getting into stun-locks; although it seems easy, it’s not.

Team Composition Summary

Kazuha’s main role is to buff elemental damage bonuses to his team members and boost their overall elemental damage potential. On top of that, he can also shred elemental resistance from enemies with the help of the Viridescent Venerer set that allows his team members to boost up their damage by a couple of percentages.

His elemental skill and elemental burst also provide crowd control utility that can help you group up lightweight enemies and deal burst damage to them with the help of another team member. 

While Kazuha is one of the best anemo supports in the game, you should pay attention to your other team members. You may run into energy recharge issues and not be able to get back your elemental burst back even after a few rotations. So, you can swap in some energy recharge weapons on other team members to compensate lack of energy recharge and keep the rotation active.


Question: Sucrose C6 or Kazuha, what should I go with?

Answer: I don’t have Kazuha on my main account and have been using Sucrose C6 to benefit from the elemental boost she gives to other team members. If we are talking about an elemental damage bonus, then Kazuha will outshine Sucrose in the case and offer multiple elemental damage boosts to your team members. He can swirl multiple elements, and their elemental damage bonuses will have separate counters. 

On the other hand, Sucrose’s kit focuses on buffing the overall team’s elemental mastery, which can help you amplify reactions to deal a massive amount of damage. You can see one-shot enemies with vaporizing or melt reactions after buffing up your team’s elemental mastery with Sucrose. Conclusively, Sucrose and Kazuha are both different characters with unique abilities and have their team-specific requirements.

Question: How good is Kazuha when it comes to crowd control? Is he better than Sucrose and Venti?

Answer: I don’t think Kazuha is better than Sucrose and Venti when applying crowd control to enemies. Venti can summon a massive vortex that can suck in lightweight and heavy enemies when they freeze. Kazuha’s crowd control is relatively small in his elemental skill; however, his elemental burst can still cover many areas. Also, Sucrose’s elemental skill and elemental burst can pull in enemies and group them at a single point to deal damage to them. So, on the sole basis of crowd control, Venti and Sucrose are better than Kazuha because of their massive area-wide application.

Question: Do you think Kazuha will be re-run?

Answer: We recently got Venti’s third re-run, and so far, Kazuha only had one promoted banner. There was a lot of misinformation on Youtube videos about his abilities and utilization in team composition, so many players refrained from pulling on his banner. As players started to learn the benefit of his abilities, he became one of the best support characters in Genshin Impact. For the same reason, I couldn’t wish on Kazuha because some YouTubers said he’s not good at all. Well, I should say I regret that choice a lot. 

Coming to his re-run, its’ highly possible that he may have a re-run soon after Venti because we have Ayaka re-run right now. So, I won’t be surprised if Kazuha gets a promoted banner soon enough.

Question: How good is Kazuha when it comes to the spiral abyss?

Answer: Let’s discuss my strategy while making teams for the spiral abyss. I like to play teams that focus on dealing elemental damage or reaction damage. So, I always keep at least one anemo character in each team to benefit from Viridescent Venerer’s elemental shred. This helps my teams to do better damage and shred enemies’ resistance at the same time.

Coming to Kazuha, I would say he’s an excellent character who can shred multiple elemental resistances and provide multiple elemental damage bonuses. Although the duration for his buff is short, it still gives you a chance to perform massive burst damage attacks. Coupling him with Raiden Shogun, Sara, Bennett, or Mona can obliterate the enemy’s health bars. I would highly recommend you wish for Kazuha if he re-runs because of his massive potential to fit into any elemental team composition.

Wrapping up

Kaedehara Kazuha is one of the best anemo support for “meta” gameplay in Genshin Impact. And features a lot of abilities and unique passives that can enhance his overall utility to the team. While his gameplay may have a bit of a learning curve, you can expect to see better results once you get over it. Being a flexible anemo character, he can be played in many reaction team compositions and produce potent results for the team’s overall damage.

I highly recommend you to wish for him if you want a character that can boost your elemental damage and love to play teams that depend on elemental reactions. He brings immense support potential to the time, and his constellations enhance his potential further. Also, as an anemo character who’s good in a support role, Viridescent Venerer is the de facto choice for his artifact set. You can shred elemental resistance and boost elemental damage at the same time.

That was all from my end, and I hope you learned something new about Kazuha! I’ll recommend you go over other guides on the site. I guess I can hope to meet you in another guide.
