Main DPS Gaming

Gaming is primarily played as a Main DPS dealing Plunging Attack DMG via repeated uses of their Elemental Skills. Gaming actually has a more unique situation where their best weapon is actually from the Battle Pass.

BiS Weapon Serpent Spine
Alternative Weapons
  1. Verdict
  2. Beacon of the Reed Sea
  3. Redhorn Stonethresher
  4. Wolf's Gravestone
  5. Rainslasher
  6. Mailed Flower
Best Artifacts
  1. Marechaussee Hunter
  2. Crimson Witch of Flames
Main Stats
  • Sand Stats: ATK % or Elemental Mastery
  • Goblet Stats: Pyro DMG
  • Circlet Stats: CRIT Rate / CRIT DMG
Substat Priority
  1. Energy Recharge to requirements
  2. CRIT Rate / CRIT DMG
  3. Elemental Mastery
  4. ATK %
Talent Priority
  1. Elemental Skill
  2. Elemental Burst
  3. Normal Attack

Gaming's best weapon is Serpent Spine as long as you can maintain at least a couple of the weapons stacks generated by not taking damage. Beacon of the Reed Sea and Verdict are incredibly close to each other and also Serpent Spine. If you are not a player who purchases the Battle Pass, then Verdict is your best option.

Gaming's best artifacts are Crimson Witch of Flames and Marechaussee Hunter both being extremely competitive. Marechaussee works incredibly well due to Skills, Ascension Passives and Constellations all having HP-Manipulation mechanics. Crimson Witch tends to be better at C6. Stat priorities focus primarily on CRIT Rate and CRIT DMG however Elemental Mastery can be important in Vaporize reaction teams. Gaming wants around 130 - 160% Energy Recharge.

Gaming's Elemental Skill is his most important talent to focus on and is where the majority of his DMG comes from.


Combos and How to Play Gaming

Gaming's gameplay is focused on dealing Plunge Attack DMG but instead of having to jump into the air, he can use Bestial Ascent which automatically jumps into the air with a different animation and not attacking directly with his Claymore.

Gaming's Elemental Burst, Suanni's Gilded Dance allows Gaming to enter a Wushou Stance and summoning the Suanni Man Chai. When Plunge Attacking with the Elemental Skill, the Man Chai will also land at a random part of the floor nearby. When you get close to the Man Chai they link with Gaming to reset his Skill Cooldown.

This means as soon as you finish a Plunging Attack: Charmed Cloudstrider you want to find your Man Chai to link and allow yourself another Plunging Attack. Your rotation becomes:

  • Bestial Ascent
  • Suanni's Gilded Dance
  • Bestial Ascent spam

Gaming Best Team Comps

Gaming's best team comps are those which either enable his Plunging Attack playstyle or those that help to apply Elements and increase his Amplifying DMG as a result of Plunging Attacks not having an Internal Cooldown.


Gaming Xianyun Plunge

Main DPS Support Support Support
Gaming Furina Bennett Xianyun
Main DPS Sub DPS Support Support
Gaming Bennett

The first team is Gaming's best team, using the incredibly powerful pairing of Furina and Xianyun to deal great Plunge Vaporize damage. Bennett, in this team, provides both Pyro Resonance as well as another DMG boost. At C6, Bennett also provides a Pyro Infusion to Gaming. This can be great and allows Gaming to utilise Xianyun's Elemental Burst to alternate between Plunging Attacks from Bestial Ascent and Normal Plunging Attacks now infused with Pyro.

Other Vaporize teams have also been listed as well using characters such as Xingqiu, Sucrose, Yelan and Kazuha.


Melt Gaming Team

Main DPS Sub DPS Support Support
Gaming Rosaria

Melt teams are another way in which you can play Gaming. Rosaria having steady Cryo application can be great here. Bennett is the ideal option for your Anemo Kazuha or Sucrose so that you Swirl Pyro. Diona and Layla can be helpful options if you feel you need additional Cryo application or Bennett is being used elsewhere but it will be noticeably less DMG compared to using Bennett.
