[Top 3] Genshin Impact Best Kaeya Builds That Wreck Hard!

Genshin Impact, Characters, Build, Sword, Kaeya, Cryo
Three builds for our favourite Knight!

Kaeya is the Cavalry Captain of the Knights of Favonius. The first time you meet him is in the Prologue, Act I: The Outlander Who Caught the Wind. 

He’s sarcastic but kind, two characteristics that charmed us the first time we saw him. Kaeya is also eccentric and full of secrets, but we also love that about him. His adoptive brother is Diluc and they have a complicated relationship, let’s call it like that.

Even if you think he just can be built with Cryo DMG because he’s a Cryo character, you’re wrong! Kaeya is a really flexible character when we talk about builds, so let us show you some examples that we think are the best for him!

3. Shimenawa’s Reminiscence and Bloodstained Chivalry


Shimenawa’s Reminiscence is an Artifact Set available at 4-star and 5-star rarities which can be obtained from Momiji-Dyed Court in Inazuma. The 2-Piece Bonus of Shimenawa’s Reminiscence increases your attack by 18%. 

Bloodstained Chivalry is available at 4-star and 5-star rarities and can be obtained from Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern. The 2-Piece Bonus increases Physical DMG by 25%.

Now that we learned a little bit about these sets, let’s talk about the fun part!

  • Even if Kaeya is a Cryo character, he can be built as a DPS because of his Physical DMG. He has a lot! And you can always get that Cryo DMG in the Goblet’s set.
  • These two artifacts combined will increase Kaeya’s DMG a lot. Gladiator’s Finale has the same 2-Piece Bonus as Shimenawa’s Reminiscence, but we prefer this one because it can be farmed, while Gladiator’s Finale is only available from Bosses.
  • The perfect weapon for this build is Aquila Favonia, a 5-star sword that can be obtained from wishes. This weapon has Physical DMG as its second stat and increases ATK by 20-40%.

2. Shimenawa’s Reminiscence and Noblesse Oblige


Noblesse Oblige is an Artifact Set available at 4-star and 5-star rarities and can be obtained from Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern. Its 2-Piece Bonus increases Elemental Burst DMG by 20%.

If you like to deal DMG with Kaeya’s Elemental Burst while he deals DMG with his basic attacks, this is the perfect build for him!

  • As we said, Shimenawa’s Reminiscence increases Kaeya’s DMG, making him a really good DPS.
  • Kaeya’s Elemental Burst creates a Cryo circle around the character that spins and deals Cryo DMG. Noblesse Oblige will increase this Cryo DMG.
  • The best weapon for this set is Freedom-Sworn, a 5-star sword with Elemental Mastery as its second stat. This weapon increases DMG by 10-20% and it stacks when you deal Elemental Reactions. Bennet is a must for your team with Kaeya.

1. Blizzard Strayer and Noblesse Oblige


Blizzard Strayer (or Icebreaker) is an Artifact Set available at 4-star and 5-star rarities which can be obtained from Peak of Vindagnyr. The 2-Piece Bonus of this set increases Cryo DMG by 15%.

  • If you still want to build Kaeya with Cryo DMG we don’t blame you, we think it's the best way too. With these two sets together Kaeya’s Elemental Skill and Burst will deal a lot of Cryo DMG.
  • This build is indicated for an elemental support Kaeya. “What does it mean?”. It means that Kaeya will just deal elemental DMG to your team while you deal DMG with another character.
  • Iron Sting is the best weapon for him. Its second stat is Elemental Mastery and increases Elemental DMC by 6% every 1s. When you build a character as your elemental support the most important things are Energy Recharge and EM.

Now that we showed you what we think are the best builds for Kaeya, it’s your turn to choose which one you prefer! As we always say, you can do what you want in Genshin Impact, nobody is gonna argue with you. 

But tell us, which one did you choose?
