Genshin Impact Best Constellations For Every 5-Star

Best constellations for every 5-star in Genshin Impact so far!
Anemo Archon, Venti, was the first exclusive 5-star

As if they're not powerful enough, their constellations can be a valuable improvement

All characters in Genshin Impact have a constellation, except those who may be a collaboration with other games such as Aloy, from Horizon’s Zero Dawn. We talked before about the best constellations for every 4 star, this time it’s the turn of the 5-star characters, find out here!


Albedo (Opening Of Phanerozoic)

(The chief alchemist of the Knights of Favonius)

To start this top, we have Albedo, a strong Geo support that provides reliable and consistent Geo damage with his elemental skill, his elemental burst it’s also quite powerful and buffs your party elemental mastery with the right ascension level.

Why Opening Of Phanerozoic is great for Albedo

  • Transient Blossoms generated by Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma grant Albedo Fatal Reckoning for 30s: Each stack of Fatal Reckoning increases DMG by 30% of Albedo's DEF. 
  • The effect stacks up to 4 times. Unleashing Rite of Progeniture: Tectonic Tide consumes all stacks of Fatal Reckoning, increasing the DMG dealt by the Tectonic Tide and Fatal Blossoms based on the number of stacks consumed.

Ayaka (Snowswept Sakura)

(The graceful daughter of the Kamisato Clan)

Ayaka is a powerful Cryo DPS. She can do a lot of damage and her constellations make things way better. Despite all of her constellations are amazing, her first is arguably the best.

Why Snowswept Sakura is Great for Ayaka

  • When Kamisato Ayaka's Normal or Charged Attacks deal Cryo DMG to opponents, it has a 50% chance of decreasing the CD of Kamisato Art: Hyouka by 0.3s. This effect can occur once every 0.1s.
  • If you use Ayaka in a conventional way, you will always be doing Cryo damage, and that will allow you to spam your elemental skill.


Tartaglia (Havoc: Annihilation)

(The youngest of the Fatui Harbingers)

One of the biggest flaws Tartaglia has is the long cooldown of his elemental skill, this is the main reason some people haven’t pulled for him in his past three banners, although he's still a great character with some interesting constellations.

Why Havoc: Annihilation is great or Tartaglia?

  • When Havoc: Obliteration is cast in Melee Stance, the CD of Foul Legacy: Raging Tide is reset. This effect will only take place once Tartaglia returns to his Ranged Stance.
  • This pretty much allows Tartaglia to use his melee stance permanently, his main source of dealing a lot of damage.

Diluc (Flaming Sword, Nemesis of Dark)

(The tycoon from Mondstadt)

This tycoon from Mondstadt has some amazing constellations. He deals decent damage and has the advantage of having a Pyro vision, since all Pyro characters have the chance of dealing the most damage through elemental reactions.

(The imposing suspected to be the Cocogoat)

Ganyu has been crowned by the Genshin Impact community and tier lists as the best DPS in the game, her playstyle is quite simple and straightforward. Her constellations are interesting and the best one is the first.

Why Dew-Drinker is great for Ganyu

  • A hit regenerates 2 Energy for Ganyu. This effect can only occur once per Charge Level 2 Frostflake Arrow, regardless if Frostflake Arrow itself or its Bloom hit the target.
  • The benefit of gaining energy for every hit is highly valuable to spam her burst.

Hu Tao (Crimson Bouquet)

(A funerary director with strange sales strategies)
The 77th director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor is a powerful DPS with constellations that unlock her true potential and allow a smoother playstyle. Her best constellation is her first one, which removes the cost of stamina for her charged attacks.

Why Crimson Bouquet is great for Hu Tao 

  • While in a Paramita Papilio state, activated by Guide to Afterlife, Hu Tao's Charged Attacks do not consume Stamina.

Jean (People's Aegis)

Anemo Traveler (Intertwined Winds)

(The best constellation for the first element the Traveler adopts)

The traveler is the main character that we get to control as soon as the story begins, and of course, he or she is the protagonist of it alongside his or her twin. Because the Traveler is gathering the power of the seven elements nation by nation, he has access to some cool constellations.

  • For the next 1s, he may use Lemniscatic Wind Cycling while ignoring its CD.
  • The fact that you can use his elemental skill while ignoring its CD during a second is totally insane because you can spam it as much as possible during that second.

(The maker of gorgeous fireworks)

The second Pyro character that wields a bow in Genshin Impact. Yoimiya’s abilities work amazing as a support, but she can be a DPS. Her constellations are amazing and increase her damage, the best one is A Procession Of Bonfires.
