Tighnari is a highly competent fighter in Genshin Impact. Given that he uses the Dendro element, he relies heavily on reaction procs and triggers. Here’s our Genshin Impact Tighnari best team comps guide to help you with the ideal characters that can fit in the squad.
Genshin Impact Tighnari best team comps guide
Before we discuss the best team comps for Tighnari in Genshin Impact, let’s talk about some key facets and why we’re picking certain options:
- Charged Attack/Wreath Arrow – When fully-charged, fires four projectiles that track a target.
- Elemental Skill: Vijnana-Phala Mine – Does AoE damage and taunts nearby enemies. Even better, it signficantly lowers the charging time of his Wreath Arrow, allowing for rapid-fire hits. You can fire up to three of these shots for every skill cast.
- Elemental Burst: Fashioner’s Tanglevine Shaft – Fires six projectiles that track opponents and deal Dendro damage, plus another wave of projectiles upon hitting the initial target.
- Passive: Keen Sight – +50 elemental mastery (EM) for four seconds after firing a Wreath Arrow.
- Passive: Scholarly Blade – Increases the damage of the charged attack/Wreath Arrow and elemental burst by 0.06% for every point of EM; capped at 60% bonus damage.
As you can see, Tighnari’s abilities are self-boosters (they don’t necessarily buff the entire party unlike Nahida). His kit also implies a main DPS role — not a heavy carry, but someone who’ll be on-field for several seconds before quick-swapping to others.
Quicken -> Aggravate/Spread
This is one of the best team comps for Tighnari in Genshin Impact since it’s fairly straightforward, and it relies primarily on fast elemental reactions made by Dendro and Electro:
- Electro sub-DPS: Yae Miko or Fischl – Either of these two femme fatales will aid in the creation of non-stop procs, thanks to their off-field usage.
- Two flex slots: Any support – This slot can have anyone that can synergize with the above choices:
- Dendro Traveler, Collei, or Nahida – If you need more Dendro applications. Nahida’s EM-based party buffs are also great to have, though she’ll likely have a minor role if Tighnari is your main DPS.
- Kuki Shinobu – Another Electro option with decent healing and an amazing aura uptime.
- Zhongli or Kazuha – Shields/elemental resistance shred and pulling.
Note: As mentioned in our best artifacts guide for Tighnari, you can choose from three artifact sets. However, if you brought a support character with you, then they can use Deepwood Memories for the resistance shred. This frees up Tighnari so he can use either Gilded Dreams or Wanderer’s Troupe.
Another viable team comp for Tighnari focuses on Dendro plus Pyro:
- Pyro sub-DPS: Bennett or Xiangling
- Two flex slots – You’ll want Dendro or Pyro characters here. Don’t risk an Electro since they could accidentally trigger Overload.
Bloom -> Burgeon/Hyperbloom
Sadly, we found this kind of setup a bit iffy for Tighnari. Bloom cores are created when there’s a reaction between Dendro and Hydro. If Pyro or Electro is applied to the cores, then you’ll get Burgeon or Hyperbloom respectively.
The downside is that Tighnari’s AoE Dendro application comes from his skill, which tends to be followed by three Wreath Arrow shots. That means Hydro has to affect enemies first (i.e., Kokomi’s skill), then Tighnari or another Dendro character will need to create the cores. Finally, a Pyro or Electro character has to hit those cores for Burgeon/Hyperbloom. That leaves little room for Tighnari’s usual rotation, which can throw off your timing.
