Cyno, furina, nahida and baizhu seem to do well. Furina being a good boost

Anonymous 32

Best team comp for premium: Cyno, Kazuha, Nahida and baizhu. Baizhu's dendro application ends too early for cyno to optemize fully.

Fafnir 31

Could I use the new BP weapon on him or is it bad?

Anonymous 30

Shouldn't Baizhu be also added in the recommended supps for Cyno's hyperbloom and aggravate comps since he clearly synergizes with him?

Anonymous 29

Why does the description still say "Dendro traveller" when the team comp has already been updated to include Nahida
