I'm so confused of those who complain. Zhongli is in my coop party, he's so strong & worth the S tier. It's a shame that players are blinded by DPS only while there're so many good things beside DPS. If you say he's a bad 5 sta, you don't know and don't have the skill to play with him you DPS maniac

Anonymous 4

Surprised they aren't recommending recharge on Zhongli. He's pretty good if you kit him out with it, it's been working fantastically for me. The guy's a killing machine with attack and recharge.

Anonymous 3

Seeing people getting mad at Zhongli for being a "bad character" or "only a 4 star character" is so funny to me lmao I'm over here vibing with my Zhongli that f_cks up bosses in a minute. Just say you're mad because you don't have him

Anonymous 2

Zhongli's S-tier, you say?
If you want proof that this tier list's a joke, you now have it.
