Genshin Impact Traveler Geo DPS and Support Build Guide

by Nikakosa

Starting off, Anemo Traveler & Geo Traveler Builds are generally the same. Following the pattern of stronger Normal & Charged Attacks, while bolstering the overall dmg that their Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst do. Let’s jump into it.

———————————————————————————

~~ TL;DR ~~

————————————-

~ Geo DPS ~

—-

Weapon: Skyward Blade (5*)(P2P), The Black Sword (4*), Fillet Blade (3*)(F2P)

Artifacts: Gladiator’s Finale (4) OR Gladiator’s Finale (2) & Archaic Petra (2)

~ Geo Support ~

—-

Weapon: The Flute (4*), Fillet Blade (3*)

Artifacts: Noblesse Oblige (2) & The Exile (2) OR

Noblesse Oblige (4) OR The Exile (4)

———————————————————————————

~~ Geo DPS ~~

————————————-

~ Weapon ~

I recommend using one of the following weapons:

Skyward Blade (5*), The Black Sword(4*), Fillet Blade (3*)

————————————-

Skyward Blade

—-

Main Stat: Attack

Sub-Stat: Energy Recharge

Following after my Anemo Traveler guide, I recommend Skyward blade to maximize Traveler’s DMG potential through Crit’s and it’s fantastic effect, which is more obtainable thanks to its Sub-Stat. The effect increases a plethora of different stats after an Elemental Burst is used. Including: Movement Speed (10%), Attack Speed (10%), and Normal and Charged Attack DMG by 20% for 12s.

Crit Rate increased by 4/5/6/7/8%. Gains Skypiercing Might upon using Elemental Burst: Increases Movement SPD by 10%, increases ATK SPD by 10%, and increases the DMG of Normal and Charged Attack hits by 20/25/30/35/40% for 12s.

————————————-

The Black Sword

—-

Main Stat: Attack

Sub-Stat: Crit Rate

The Black Sword is a Battle Pass exclusive weapon that is extremely strong. Boosting DMG dealt by Normal and Charged Attacks by 20%, while also allowing for consistent and decent heals. 60% of ATK as HP When Normal and Charged Attacks score a CRIT Hit. This is perfect for any Sword user as it allows them to sustain themselves and deal increases consistent DMG.

Increases DMG dealt by Normal and Charged Attacks by 20/25/30/35/40%. Additionally, regenerates 60/70/80/90/100% of ATK as HP when Normal and Charged Attacks score a CRIT hit. This effect can occur once every 5s.

————————————-

Fillet Blade

—-

Main Stat: Attack

Sub-Stat: Attack %

Fillet Blade can help Traveler deal extra damage through it’s effect. While also increasing their Base Attack to deal more devastating attacks. I recommend the Fillet Blade overall because it can deal that consistent extra dmg at a 50% chance. It is also a rather free to play weapon. Even though it is achieved through rolls, it being a 3* means that the drop rate is quite frequent.

On hit, has 50% chance to deal 240/280/320/360/400% ATK DMG to a single enemy. Can only occur once every 15/14/13/12/11s.

———————————————————————————

~ Artifacts ~

I recommend using the following Artifact sets for the Geo DPS Build:

Gladiator’s Finale & or Archaic Pertra

————————————-

Gladiator’s Finale

—-

Sub-Stat wanted:

ATK / ATK / Physical DMG Bonus / Geo DMG Bonus

Gladiator’s Finale will bolster Traveler’s Attack by 18% at (2). This will seriously increase the amount of dmg they can do. At (4) Normal Attacks will have their dmg increased by 35%. This additive to the already very high dmg Elemental Skill, will make it an even deadlier attack! While also allowing for more consistent dmg from their Normal Attacks.

(2) Atk +18%

(4) If the wielder of this artifact set uses a Sword, Claymore or Polearm, increases their Normal Attack DMG by 35%.

Archaic Petra

—-

Sub-Stat wanted:

ATK / ATK / Physical DMG Bonus / Geo DMG Bonus

The reason I recommend Archaic Petra is because while you’ll still be using Normal and Charged attacks for your main consistent DMG, their Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst are DEADLY talents that can create spacing and deal significant damage to enemies around them.

(2) Geo DMG Bonus +15%

(4) Upon obtaining a crystal created through a Geo Elemental Reaction, all party members gain 35% RES to that particular element for 10s. Only one form of Elemental RES can be gained in this manner at any one time.

———————————————————————————

~~ Geo Support ~~

————————————-

~ Weapon ~

I highly recommend using this weapon on for Traveler Geo Support:

The Flute (4*), Fillet Blade (3*)

————————————-

The Flute

—-

Main Stat: Attack

Sub-Stat: ATK %

The Flute will help increase the overall DMG that Traveler will do thanks to its Sub-Stat. Also allowing for rather decent dmg through its effect. Allowing for consistent DMG to surrounding enemies while you deal big DMG with your Main DPS.

Normal or Charged Attacks grant a Harmonic on hits. Gaining 5 Harmonics triggers the power of music and deals 100/125/150/175/200% ATK DMG to surrounding enemies. Harmonics last up to 30s, and a maximum of 1 can be gained every 0.5s.

————————————-

Fillet Blade

—-

Main Stat: Attack

Sub-Stat: Attack %

Fillet Blade can help Traveler deal extra damage through it’s effect. While also increasing their Base Attack to deal more devastating attacks. I recommend the Fillet Blade overall because it can deal that consistent extra dmg at a 50% chance. It is also a rather free to play weapon. Even though it is achieved through rolls, it being a 3* means that the drop rate is quite frequent.

On hit, has 50% chance to deal 240/280/320/360/400% ATK DMG to a single enemy. Can only occur once every 15/14/13/12/11s.

———————————————————————————

~ Artifacts ~

The artifact sets I recommend are:

Noblesse Oblige, Archaic Petra, & The Exile

————————————-

Noblesse Oblige

—-

Sub-Stat wanted:

ATK % / Geo DMG Bonus / ATK %

Noblesse Oblige will increase the DMG output of their Elemental Burst by 20%. Geo Reactions aren’t really all that great, but their DMG as a whole using Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst are pretty good. Increasing that DMG just adds to the potential as a support. (4) Noblesse Oblige is a decent choice as well. As it will allow for the teams ATK to be buffed by 20% after Elemental Burst is used.

(2) Increases Elemental Mastery by 80.

(4) After using Elemental Skill, Increases all party members’ Elemental Mastery by 120 for 8s.

Archaic Petra

—-

Sub-Stat wanted:

ATK / ATK / Physical DMG Bonus / Geo DMG Bonus

The reason I recommend Archaic Petra is because you’ll be mainly using their Geo Elemental Skill and Burst. This will increase the DMG enemies take by increasing their Geo DMG by 15%. I do not recommend using (4) Archaic Petra, as it will barely benefit you. However, It can be used if needed. (For tanking more dmg of a specific element.)

(2) Geo DMG Bonus +15%

(4) Upon obtaining a crystal created through a Geo Elemental Reaction, all party members gain 35% RES to that particular element for 10s. Only one form of Elemental RES can be gained in this manner at any one time.

The Exile

—-

Sub-Stat wanted:

ATK % /  Geo DMG Bonus / ATK %

The Exile (2) promotes their Energy Recharge rate. Allowing for more consistent Elemental Burst usage. While (4) will provide 2 energy for other party members every 2s for 6s, when an Elemental Burst is used. I would strongly recommend The Exile be used in tandem with either of the two above. As that would provide the best support for your main DPS.

(2) Energy Recharge +20%

(4) Using an Elemental Burst regenerates 2 Energy for other party members every 2s for 6s. This effect cannot stack.

———————————————————————————

~~ Conclusion ~~

While I mainly use Geo Traveler as a Support, They can easily be used as a F2P optional Main DPS. I would avoid using them as a main stay DPS, and try and focus on someone who can benefit the team more. However, As I see it Traveler is more of a main support to the party. However, I have seen some wacky Traveler DMG on YouTube. Be sure to look those up if you’re curious. Tis just my opinion though!
