Genshin Impact Best Support Tier List (1.6)

Genshin Impact Best Support

Every character in Genshin Impact is very powerful and useful on its own. However, some characters perform better when used for a certain Role. In this guide, we will rank the best Characters that perform well in the Support Role. Support characters are characters that can provide supplemental effects to your team. They can give offensive buffs which boost the overall damage of your team, or they can aid defensively by providing shields and healings.


Here are the ranks we used:

  • OP = characters that are broken (in a positive way) in the current version
  • S = top-performing Support characters
  • A = good Support characters that can provide utility and healing to the team
  • B = pretty decent as a Support, but they can be outperformed by others for this role
  • C = can be used as a Support but is probably better for other roles




Zhongli's shield is indestructible and gives Resistance Reduction to surrounding enemies. Zhongli is efficient at triggering Crystallize Reactions - giving additional shields for his allies. His Elemental Burst also petrifies enemies in a large area. He can also create Stone Steele that can be used for exploration or blocking projectile attacks.
Venti is a good CC character. His Elemental Burst can group multiple enemies for a long duration. If equipped with Viridescent Venerer Artifact Set, Venti can decrease the Resistance of enemies to the Swirled Element. Venti's Elemental Skill is also useful for exploration.




Bennett can create an Inspirational Field using his Elemental Burst. Inside the field, allies will be healed if their HP is below 70%. If their HP is above 70% they will gain Attack Bonus instead. If Bennett's 1st Constellation is unlocked, the HP requirement for the Attack Bonus will be negated.
Diona can provide all the supporting tools to her team. She can shield her allies repeatedly with her Elemental Skill. Her Elemental Burst creates a field that heals allies and damages enemies inside the AOE. At full Constellations, Diona can also provide Elemental Mastery buff to her allies.
Jean is a reliable Healer. Her Elemental Burst can instantly heal her allies upon activation. Her Elemental Burst also leaves a field that provides healing over time. She can also heal her allies by performing Normal Attacks.
Sucrose has a good CC potential. Almost all of her abilities have Crowd Controlling effects on the enemies. Sucrose can also provide constant Elemental Mastery Buff for her allies.

If his 2nd Constellation is unlocked, the field created by his Elemental Burst provides Elemental Mastery Bonus to allies inside it. Kazuha can also serve as an Energy "battery" for his allies.
Mona is very good at applying Crowd Control effects to enemies. Mona's Elemental Burst also applies a debuff to affected enemies. Attacks performed on the debuffed enemies will be boosted.

Albedo is very good at triggering repeated Crystallize Reactions. His Elemental Burst can give Elemental Mastery Bonus to his allies whenever he uses it. Albedo's Solar Isotoma can also elevate allies stepping on it - making it a great tool for exploration.
