Faruzan Anemo Support Build

Faruzan's main build is that of an Anemo Support for characters such as Wanderer and Xiao by providing incredibly powerful supportive capabilities. Faruzan is however very Energy-hungry meaning you need to focus on Energy Recharge over personal damage.

  2. CRIT Rate / DMG
  3. ATK

  2. Elemental Skill
  3. Normal Attack

Favonius Warbow is incredibly important to Faruzan because of how impactful it is towards Energy Recharge. When using Favonius Warbow you want to prioritise CRIT over CRIT DMG.

The exact amount of Energy Recharge can vary wildly depending on your rotation and constellations meaning you may require anywhere from 200% to 300% Energy Recharge. Viridescent Venerer is also your best Artifact choice, but at C6 consider swapping to Tenacity of the Millelith.


Energy Recharge Breakpoints

Faruzan's Energy requirements generally depend on how often you create Pressurized Collapse when using Wind Realm of Nasamjnin. With her C6, The Wondrous Path of Truth , your Energy Recharge requirements are significantly lower. If you are specifically using Favonius Warbow you can remove around 35% off of the below requirements.

C0 C1 - C5 C6
2 Pressurized Collapse 100% particles 220 - 240% 175 - 200%
2 Pressurized Collapse 50% Particles 245 - 260% 210 - 230%
1 Pressurized Collapse 100% Particles 275 - 300% 235 - 260%

50% and 100% Particles refers to the energy particles generated when using Wind Realm of Nasamjnin. A character only gains 50% of the energy if they are off-field. 100% would therefore mean that Faruzan was on-field to collect the particles.


Combos and How to Play Faruzan

Faruzan is easy to set up as a support however their charged attacks can feel clunky at times with lower constellations. Start by using Wind Realm of Nasamjnin and Charged Attack to apply Pressurized Collapsee. Repeat a second time for more energy as needed. Afterwards use The Wind's Secret Ways and swap to another party member.

If the Anemo DPS on your team needs additional energy then use The Wind's Secret Ways first and only afterwards use Wind Realm of Nasamjnin. This will allow you to swap to your Anemo DPS, giving them the Energy instead.


Faruzan's Best Team Comps

Being exclusively an Anemo support, Faruzan plays best when with other Anemo characters mainly Wanderer, Xiao and Shikanoin Heizou to increase their personal damage.


Faruzan Supporting Anemo Hypercarries

Main DPS Sub DPS Sub DPS Support
Wanderer Xingqiu Faruzan Layla
Xiao Albedo Faruzan Zhongli
Shikanoin Heizou Yelan Faruzan Kuki Shinobu

Listed above are examples of different Anemo Hypercarries teams using Anemo DPS characters, there are many more examples in their respective guides, which use Faruzan due to how incredibly powerful she is to increasing the damage of the DPS. Different Sub DPS and Supports have been listed as examples of the flexibility available.


Xiao Xianyun Plunge

Main DPS Support Support Support
Xiao Faruzan Xianyun

This plunge team is one of Xiao's best teams to play, Xiao is buffed using characters such as Faruzan, Furina, Bennett. Xianyun and Faruzan are Key to this team being incredibly powerful supports for Xiao. Do not forget that with this team, only one Anemo character requires Viridescent Venerer so Faruzan can wear Tenacity of the Millelith instead.
