Should You Pull For Zhongli ?

Pull If You Need A Shielder & Support


Zhongli is the best support in terms of shielding since his shield is consistent and it can also decrease the elemental & physical resistance of nearby enemies; he is a must-have character. Zhongli is already great initially and his constellations make him even better but it depends on your prioritization.

Constellation 2 Gives 100% Up Time Of Shields

While at constellation 2, using Elemental Burst will also create a Jade Shield to your character making it a lot easier to have a 100 percent up-time on shields.

Strengths & Weakness Of Zhongli

- Consistent shield that can decrease the Elemental & Physical RES of nearby enemies
↳ Currently the best shielder
- One weapon that can be used for him is F2P-friendly
↳ He can maximize Black Tassel which is a 3* polearm that can be easily upgraded
- Can fit in any team comp
- Split-scaling for DPS & Shields.
- Long animation for Elemental Burst.
 ↳ While it looks amazing, it can be a DPS loss especially at higher level contents.
