Genshin Impact Kaeya Support Build Guide
PSA #1: Supports are there to make your DPS better. They can help add what you’re missing. Supports are basically condiments.
PSA #2: Both Kaeya’s abilities scale off ATK. If he’s not off playing Minecraft, slap some damage on him and watch him pop off.
Elemental Skill – Frostgnaw
You spit out three icicles in a cone in front of you. Does cryo damage. YOU CAN SPAM THE EVER LIVING F**K OUT OF THIS
Passive – Cold-Blooded Strike
The more enemies you hit with E = the more HP Kaeya heals. ONLY APPLIES TO HIM, NOT YOUR TEAM
Passive – Heart of the Abyss
Basically Kaeya can turn into an energy orb vending machine
Elemental Burst – Glacial Waltz
Summons a ring of ice to show how cool you are. Slaps enemies with cryo damage if they run into you. STAYS WHEN YOU SWAP CHARACTERS.
PSA #3: Like with any cryo character, PAIRS EXTREMELY WELL WITH HYDRO. Kaeya spams a butt ton, so make sure you utilize those free energy orbs
WEAPON #1 (Recommended for early permafrost): Cool Steel
How do I get it D: ? – Go slap some monsters and steal their chests, or it’s time to roll boys (gacha)
Has base ATK scaling and overall improves Kaeya’s damage output
Skyrider Sword also feels really good to use, so you can use that instead of this if you want!
WEAPON #2 (Recommended for avalanche): Fillet Blade
How do I get it D: ? – Go slap some monsters and steal their chests
Has base ATK scaling and honestly you just play peek-a-boo with KaeyaPSA #4: There are a lot of good substitutes for weapons, but Fillet Blade feels too good on Kaeya. When you swap to Kaeya, use the E, normal attack 1-3 times to proc Fillet Blade, then swap out to DPS. You basically play peek-a-boo but you just slap someone really hard
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for early winter): Instructor
How do I get it D: ? – Confront Stormterror Domain (60 Resin per run), or go steal some chests
It’s mainly for the 4-set bonus since Kaeya will always have cryo proc ready
ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for blizzards): Noblesse Oblige
How do I get it D: ? – Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern Domain (AR 35 locked, 20 Resin per run)
Buffs his Q but also directly buffs everyone else’s output
You can run The Exile set as well. It feels really good if your team is lacking some serious energy recharge. If you’re good on energy recharge, then just run these two recommended sets.
What you want for stats:
- Main stat: ATK% (Cryo DMG% for Goblet works fine)
- Substats: CRIT% > CRIT DMG > ATK/Elemental Mastery > Elemental Recharge
PSA #5: There is a CRIT Kaeya build floating around somewhere that’s really fun to play. Basically you run Harbinger of Dawn for weapon, 2-set Berserker and any 2-set 18% ATK artifact and just slap people with icicles
