Synergy Of Shielder Zhongli Team

CharacterDetail
Yoimiya She can attack enemies while on Albedo's Skill platform. Her Burst also deals additional damage when the marked enemy is attacked by other characters other than herself.
Fischl At C6, Oz releases an additional projectile whenever Yoimiya performs a normal ATK. With Thundering Fury x4, triggering Electro-related reactions reduces Skill's CD which is great for sustaining Oz's presence on the field.
Yelan She is one of the best off-field Hydro DPS that can synergize well with Yoimiya's quick Normal ATK. Also, additional ATK & EM buff is provided to the team whenever Elegy's passive is activated.

The objective of this team is to enable coordinated attacks with Yoimiya. This team highlights the coordinated attacks in quick succession.

Pros & Cons Of Shielder Zhongli Team

Pros- Powerful against single targets, especially if the target is a single boss
- Can inflict damage & trigger elemental reaction simultaneously thru Yoimiya's normal ATK
Cons- Yelan needs to have decent ER value for consistent Burst usage
- When affected by Cryo, Yoimiya's normal ATK speed is slowed which also affects the frequency & performance of coordinated attacks
- Difficult to utilize if you are facing an enemy with a debuff that can ignore shield such as corrosion

Rotation Of Shielder Zhongli Team

No.Procedure
1Use Zhongli's Skill for shield
2Switch to Yelan
3Use Yelan's Burst for the coordinated attack
4Use Yelan's Skill to inflict Hydro DMG and produce Hydro particles
5Switch to Fischl
6Use Fischl's Skill to inflict initial Electro DMG and summon Oz
7Switch to Yoimiya
8Use Yoimiya's Skill and utilize it until the duration ends
9Repeat from step 1

The infusion from Yoimiya's Skill disappears when she gets switched out so use it when the setup is done.

Echoes Of An Offering Vs Shimenawa's Reminiscence

When using Echoes of an Offering, you can freely use Yoimiya's Burst whenever available and the passive of Thundering Pulse can be activated at max if Yoimiya's energy is less than 100%. Meanwhile, Shimenawa's Reminiscence limits Yoimiya's Burst usage as you need to have at least 15 Energy to trigger its 4-piece set effect.

- Aside from a second off-field DPS, you can go for a healer or buffer that can improve the damage output of main DPS

Zhongli's shield can shred the elemental & physical resistance of nearby enemies which makes Zhongli a flexible shielder that can fit in most team comps.

Synergy Of Microwave Zhongli Team

CharacterDetail
Zhongli He is a staple in microwave team comps since he is the only one who can enable the pulses from Geo constructs through his monolith. Also, his durable shield can protect Xiao from incoming damage & interruption and reduces the elemental RES of nearby enemies.
Xiao The raw Anemo DMG from his Burst & Plunge ATK goes well with Albedo & Zhongli. On top of this, Albedo's C4 can improve the damage output of Xiao's Plunge ATK.
Bennett He is an excellent healer who can provide ATK thru Burst & Noblesse Oblige x4. In addition, his Pyro infusion at C6 cannot override the Anemo infusion from Xiao's Burst so pairing C6 Bennett with Xiao is safe.

The objective of this team is to inflict Geo DMG with the Geo constructs and since Geo resonance is enabled, the team's damage output is empowered and the durability of Zhongli's shield is improved.

Pros & Cons Of Microwave Zhongli Team

Pros- Vibration from the Geo constructs can inflict decent damage to nearby enemies
- Xiao's attack is increased when shielded
Cons- Xiao's plunge attack could miss when landing on Albedo's turret while elevated
- Geo constructs are stationary and can be destroyed easily

Rotation Of Microwave Zhongli Team

No.Procedure
1Use Zhongli's Skill for shield and monolith
2Switch to Albedo
3Use Albedo's Skill and place the Geo construct near the monolith for resonating vibration
4Switch to Bennett
5Use Bennett's Burst for ATK buff
6Switch to Xiao
7Use Xiao's Burst for Anemo infusion & empowered plunge attack then utilize it until the duration ends

Before using Xiao's Burst, ensure that the Geo constructs & ATK buff are all active,

- Zhongli's shield may get dispelled before the CD is refreshed, opt to have a healer who can provide buffs

In this build, Zhongli's shield is not as durable as with full HP build and it is ideal to include a healer. However, Zhongli can surely throw a punch, especially with his Burst.

Synergy Of Mono Geo Zhongli Team

CharacterDetail
Itto A powerful Geo DPS who fights in close combat. His Skill, Ushi, is considered as Geo construct that can also inherit the pulse from Zhongli's monolith
Gorou He is tailored to support for DEF-scaling characters. Including him with Itto & Albedo can increase the damage output of them both. Also, he can restore a bit of HP at C4.
Albedo His Geo construct can deal off-field Geo DMG thru coordinated attacks and also inherit the pulse from Zhongli's monolith when placed nearby.

The objective of this team is to utilize a team of 4 Geo characters. Since Zhongli's shield can be sustained, you can opt to not include a healer.

Pros & Cons Of Mono Geo Zhongli Team

Pros- Geo resonance can increase the damage output as long as the shield is active
- Geo resonance improves the durability of the shield
Cons- Albedo's Skill is a Geo construct which can be destroyed easily
- It could be difficult to defeat enemies that are resistant or immune to Geo such as Geovishaps & Geo Specter
- Itto's rotation can be interrupted if accidentally elevated by Albedo's Skill
- Difficult to utilize if you are facing an enemy with a debuff that can ignore shield such as corrosion

- At C6, Noelle is a great main DPS who can heal whenever she attacks while her shield is active and corrosion is no longer much of a problem
- Ningguang is a powerful Geo DPS, especially at C6, and since the Jade Screen is considered as a Geo construct, it can also resonate with Zhongli's monolith
GorouGorouGeo TravelerGeo Traveler
Yun JinYun Jin
- Geo Traveler has a CRIT Rate buff and can produce Geo constructs that can also resonate with Zhongli's monolith

AlbedoAlbedoGeo TravelerGeo Traveler
MonaMona
XianglingXiangling
- Geo Traveler has a CRIT Rate buff and can produce Geo constructs that can also resonate with Zhongli's monolith
- Other elements for sub-DPS are also considerable

Due to the current available Geo characters, the "Mono Geo" terminology is discredited when using a character with a different element. However, the attack rotation and effectiveness of the team stays the same.

Geo Construct Is Capped At 3

The number of Geo constructs that can simultaneously exist is up to 3. When another Geo construct is produced beyond the cap, the initially created Geo construct gets destroyed.
