Best Kazuha builds in Genshin Impact


The optimal build for Kazuha in Genshin Impact depends on the player’s team composition and role requirements. However, in general, focusing on high Elemental Mastery is recommended as his talents synergize well with it. Here are some suggested artifact sets for Kazuha:

  • 4-piece Viridescent Venerer: Best set for Kazuha. Gives Anemo DMG bonus and shreds enemy resistance
  • 2-piece Viridescent Venerer + 2-Piece Gladiator’s Finale: Anemo DMG bonus + ATK%
  • 4-piece Gilded Dreams: EM bonus + buffs after dealing Elemental Reactions

Some players may like to go for an Anemo DPS build, in which case you can prioritize CRIT over EM. However, the Viridescent Venerer remains to be the best set for Kazuha and is highly recommended.


There are several excellent weapon options for Kazuha, including both free-to-play (F2P) options and 5-star weapons. Here are some recommendations:

  • Freedom Sworn: The BiS weapon for Kazuha, with an EM stat and buffs on dealing Elemental Reactions.
  • Iron Sting: Craftable F2P with Elemental Mastery sub-stat and Elemental DMG
  • Xiphos’ Moonlight: Elemental Mastery sub-stat and ER

Team recommendations

Kazuha is an excellent support who goes well in almost all Meta teams. He has one of the highest usage rates in the Spiral Abyss and provides great AoE through his attacks. However, some of the most popular teams that include Kazuha are mentioned below:

  • Childe International team: Tartaglia + Xiangling + Kazuha + Bennett
  • Hyperbloom team: Ayato + Nahida + Kuki Shinobu + Kazuha

Unfortunately, no specific birth years for characters are provided by HoYOverse when announcing their birthdays in Genshin Impact. Therefore, age estimates for characters are typically based on storyline, lore, and character designs. Using this approach, it is reasonable to estimate Kazuha’s age to be between 20 and 30 years old.

Kazuha celebrates his birthday on October 29. Similar to other characters in the game, players were rewarded with gifts on their birthday, which included 1 Guide to Elegance, 1 All-Weather Beauty in 2021; 1 All-Weather Beauty, and 10 Kalpa Lotus in 2022.

Every Ascension Material needed to level up Kaedehara Kazuha

Apart from Mora and EXP books, Kazuha requires specific materials to ascend to level 90, including:

To collect normal enemy drops for Kazuha’s ascension in Genshin Impact, players must defeat Treasure Hoarders, which are enemies scattered throughout Teyvat. These drops come in various types such as Treasure Hoarder, Silver Raven, and Golden Raven Insignia, each with different levels of rarity. To aid in locating Treasure Hoarders and obtaining the necessary drops, players can make use of the in-game Handbook or the Teyvat Interactive Map available on HoYoLAB.

The Teyvat Interactive Map is indeed a useful resource for players to locate Sea Ganoderma, which is a local specialty found near water bodies in Inazuma. The interactive map can provide precise locations to aid players in their search.

To obtain Marionette Cores in Genshin Impact, players need to defeat the Maguu Kenki boss located in Serpent’s Head on Yashiori Island in the region of Inazuma.

It might be useful to know that Kazuha excels as support till his C5. However, unlocking his C6 evolves a massive change in his playstyle, with a more DPS way of fighting. It reduces his cooldown to gain Anemo infusion after a Skill or Burst. It is a great addition to his utility, and players can go for it if they have the resources.

Kazuha has his own Story Quest Acer Palmatum, which not only provides a great backstory for his character but also delves into certain key aspects of Inazuma’s past.

In conclusion, Kazuha is a highly anticipated character in Genshin Impact with his unique Anemo abilities and captivating playstyle. To unleash his full potential as a damage dealer, it is crucial to upgrade him effectively by selecting the right weapons, artifacts, and teammates.
