Genshin Impact Venti Support Build Guide
PSA #1: Support’s job is to make DPS’ job much easier. Pretty much the wing man of the team if juicy damage numbers were a lady.
PSA #2: Both Venti’s abilities scale off ATK.
Elemental Skill – Skyward Sonnet
As the God of Anemo, you would expect some hurricane level catastrophe, but what you get is a small, gentle breeze that lifts enemies up bro…
Passive – Embrace of Winds
If you hold E, the breeze you spawn under you creates a small updraft you can glide on (CAN BE USED TO DODGE ENEMY ATTACKS)
Taping E will create the current in front of you, targeting an enemy and has a shorter CD (much better to use!)
Holding E will create the current directly under you, throwing you into the air and has a longer CD.
BOTH variations will still cause Swirl procs, BUT IT DOESN’T LAST TOO LONG, so make sure you use them AFTER a consistent elemental skill has been activated (like Fischl E, Xiangling E, Kaeya ult, etc…)!
Elemental Burst – Wind’s Grand Ode
Venti gathers all his pent up frustration and literally causes a category 5 hurricane, sucking up every enemy nearby it (honestly it even sucks up enemies far as hell away)
Passive – Stormeye
As if his energy regeneration wasn’t stupid enough already, after using his ultimate both Venti and his team get some juice back
PSA #3: While you should be trying to cause elemental reactions whenever you can with Venti, SAVE THEM FOR HIS ULTIMATE. His ultimate serves as not only (probably the best) CC in the game, but also a damage buffer! Also his ultimate is extremely spammable, so use it whenever its up
WEAPON #1 (Recommended for category 5 hurricanes): The Stringless
How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)
Has base Mastery scaling and the bow’s weapon skill allows for your E and Q to not “blow” so much (get it, like blowing air?)
WEAPON #2 (Recommended for endless farts): Favonius Warbow
How do I get it D: ? – Finish the Stormterror story quest, or it’s time to roll boys (gacha)
Has base Energy Recharge scaling + the weapon’s skill that allows you to essentially turn Venti into an energy orb vending machine
PSA #4: These two bows do not “make or break” Venti. Slingshot, Royal Bow, Rust, and Compound Bow will substitute perfectly fine! The bows recommended just help min-max a lot of Venti’s strong suits. If you have the battlepass, The Viridescent Hunt is also a great replacement
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for airhorn levels of pain): Viridescent Venerer
How do I get it D: ? – Valley of Remembrance Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run)
Scales your Anemo damage, but the big bang for your buck is that Swirl now reduces enemy resistance for the element you toss in there. The wind becomes so strong it literally strips your enemy’s clothes off
This is the only time I will ever say that this artifact set is ABSOLUTELY necessary to turn Venti into a late-game face puncher. Literally you will have a “how it feels to chew 5 gum” moment when you try this set out.
ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for early umbrella flipping winds): Instructor
How do I get it D: ? – Confront Stormterror Domain (60 Resin per run) or you can steal some chests
Makes Venti’s Swirl proc’s lethal and also helps your DPS/other team members follow extremely well
You can run a combination 2-set Exile + 2-set Scholar for even faster ultimate charge. Or, if you are able to farm for it, Noblesse Oblige/Wanderer’s Troupe sets works just as well!
PSA #5: There is a very fun charged shot build Venti can build, but it massively relies on getting C1 for him. If you are lucky enough to, then you can take Royal Bow/Sharpshooter’s Oath for weapon and Wanderer’s Troupe for the 4-set bonus!
