Go For Damage Multipliers Aside From CRIT Stat

Wolf's Gravestone is a great claymore since it can boost Chongyun's ATK and can also give an ATK buff to the team. On the other hand, Serpent Spine is an excellent claymore due to its CRIT Rate stat & passive that can further increase Chongyun's damage output.

Chongyun Best Team Comp

Premium Party For Chongyun

Depending on your team, Chongyun can act as the main DPS & support although his support potential is limited since all melee characters inside the range of his Skill automatically get Cryo infusion which is disruptive, especially to Physical DPS.

Premium Team

SupportMain DPSSupportSupport
- In this team, Chongyun acts as a support. His Elemental Skill buff can be maximized by Ayaka.
- Ayaka is a powerful main DPS who can consistently deal Cryo DMG. Chongyun's Skill is beneficial to Ayaka since it can help her to sustain the Cryo infusion which is helpful in conserving stamina as Ayaka does not need to sprint much to get Cryo infusion.
- Kazuha can amplify the elemental DMG of Ayaka when Cryo gets absorbed in his Burst. In addition, he can gather lightweight enemies with his Skill and also spread Hydro to nearby enemies for Ayaka & Chongyun to freeze.
- Kokomi is a great healer & Hydro applicator who can help the team to freeze the enemies.

Other Characters That Works With Chongyun

AyakaAyakaShenheShenhe- Although Shenhe is better as a support than a main DPS, she can boost Chongyun's damage output as main DPS.
- Zhongli has a shield that can protect the active character while decreasing the Elemental & Physical RES of nearby enemies.
- Since Zhongli's Skill can be sustained, it is great to go for an off-field DPS that can synergize with Cryo. Yelan & Xingqiu are both powerful off-field Hydro DPS whose Bursts can perform a coordinated attack with Chongyun's Normal Attack. Also, shattering frozen enemies deals additional damage.

- Chongyun acts as the main DPS of the team who can proc reverse melt with Xiangling's Skill & Burst and freeze with Barbara's Skill.

- Sucrose has crowd control that can gather lightweight enemies. She can also decrease the Elemental RES of enemies with 4-piece Viridescent Venerer set.
- Barbara is a great healer & Hydro applicator who can synergize with Chongyun & Xiangling to proc powerful elemental reactions.

Chongyun Wish & Constellation Guide

Should You Get Or Wish For Chongyun?

Pull If You Need A Cryo DPS & Support


Chongyun is a great Cryo DPS & support. His elemental skill can imbue Cryo to any melee character that is inside its range. Although Chongyun's constellation improves his DPS & support capabilities, it is not recommended to aim for Chongyun when pulling unless Chongyun's rate is boosted.

Best Constellation For Chongyun

★・・・・C1: Ice Unleashed
The last attack of Chongyun's Normal Attack combo releases 3 ice blades. Each blade deals 50% of Chongyun's ATK as Cryo DMG to all opponents in its path.
★★★★★C2: Atospheric Revolution
Elemental Skills and Elemental Bursts cast within the Frost Field created by Spirit Blade: Chonghua's Layered Frost have their CD time decreased by 15%.
★★★★・C3: Cloudburst
Increases the Level of Spirit Blade: Cloud-Parting Star by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
★★★・・C4: Frozen Skies
Chongyun regenerates 1 Energy every time he hits an opponent affected by Cryo.
This effect can only occur once every 2s.
★★・・・C5: The True Path
Increases the Level of Spirit Blade: Chonghua's Layered Frost by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
★・・・・C6: Rally Of Four Blades
Spirit Blade: Cloud-Parting Star deals 15% more DMG to opponents with a lower percentage of their Max HP remaining than Chongyun. This skill will also summon 1 additional spirit blade.

Good At C2

Once you get Chongyun to C2, it's already ideal since it's there where he gets the strong buff he could get. The Cooldown buff is very strong, especially in team comps wherein strict rotations are required.

If you're someone looking at this because you're looking to build your Chongyun, don't be discouraged by this guide. He is an absolute UNIT
He's the only character in Genshin I've had since the Mondstadt arc and is STILL in my team in 4.0. He's carried me through the entire game

Wouldn't Chongyun's best F2P team be the original national team of him xiangling, bennett and xingqiu?

Anonymous 11

Would Chongyun be good in a Superconduct comp as a Cryo applicator? I prefer using characters I like, and Chongyun is one of the few I really like.
