Genshin Impact Jean
What’s the best Genshin Jean build?
Jean is a unique, five-star anemo bow wielder with the flexibility to fit multiple playstyles and roles. She’s capable of healing and supporting her allies, while also driving elemental reactions and dealing a decent amount of damage.
You can choose to build and play your Jean in multiple ways, but her two most popular builds are anemo sub-DPS support, and elemental mastery ‘Sunfire’.
As an anemo sub-DPS support, her focus is to enable strong off-field and burst DPS units. She has low field time and fast cast times on her elemental skill and burst, allowing room for quickswap formations, and offers an extremely versatile support kit with crowd control, healing, and debuff cleansing capabilities. This build is also more flexible than Sunfire, allowing you to slot her into multiple comps.
The only issues with the anemo sub-DPS support come from what she lacks in comparison with her competitors. She has lower damage compared to other supports, and brings less impactful buffs than other anemo units like Genshin Impact’s Kazuha and Genshin Impact’s Sucrose. However, with the addition of her healing (something both Kazuha and Sucrose lack), she can be extremely valuable for freeing up another slot in exchange for another damage dealer.
The elemental mastery build, most commonly known as ‘Sunfire’, is an interesting build that relies on combining Jean and Genshin Impact Bennett‘s elemental bursts to trigger pyro swirls. This dishes out some extremely strong damage, especially when paired with electro and hydro units for even more elemental interactions.
Sunfire does have its limitations, though, as both Jean and Bennett require a lot of energy recharge in this build when not paired with Genshin Impact’s Raiden. It also, of course, relies on the use of Bennett, who is hotly contested across many team comps, and its playstyle requires you to stand within two circles, which can be quite restrictive against more mobile enemies.
What’s the best Genshin Jean weapon?
For anemo sub-DPS support Jean, Primordial Jade Cutter is the best in slot weapon, providing great flat attack and crit rate. Its passive also compliments her kit better than most other characters due to her high base HP. Alternatively, in this role Jean’s best four-star weapon is Amenoma Kageuchi, which slashes her energy recharge requirements down dramatically.
For Sunfire Jean, Freedom-Sworn pulls into the lead due to its high elemental mastery and handy passive. Iron Sting is her best four-star option in this role, offering both elemental mastery and a nice boost to her personal damage.
|Primordial Jade Cutter||Base stat: crit rate
Skill: increases HP by 20% and provides an attack bonus based on 1.2% of the wielder’s max HP
|Mistsplitter Reforged||Base stat: crit damage
Skill: gain a 12~24% Elemental DMG Bonus for all elements and receive the might of the Mistsplitter’s Emblem. At stack levels 1/2/3, Mistsplitter’s Emblem provides a 8/16/28~16/32/56% Elemental DMG Bonus for the character’s Elemental Type. The character will obtain 1 stack of Mistsplitter’s Emblem in each of the following scenarios: Normal Attack deals Elemental DMG (stack lasts 5s), casting Elemental Burst (stack lasts 10s); Energy is less than 100% (stack disappears when Energy is full). Each stack’s duration is calculated independently.
|Freedom-Sworn||Base stat: elemental mastery
Skill: increases damage by 10%. When the wielder triggers elemental reactions, they gain a Sigil of Rebellion. They can trigger this effect once every 0.5 seconds, even if they’re not on the field. When the wielder possesses two sigils, both are consumed and all nearby party members obtain ‘Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance’ for 12 seconds, which increases normal, charged, and plunging attack damageby 16% and increases attack by 20%. Once this effect triggers, you don’t gain any more sigils for 20 seconds. Multiple buffs of the same type don’t stack
|Amenoma Kageuchi||Base stat: attack
Skill: after casting an elemental skill, gain one Succession Seed. This effect can trigger once every five seconds. The Succession Seed lasts for 30 seconds. Up to thee Succession Seeds may exist simultaneously. After using an elemental burst, all Succession Seeds are consumed and after two seconds the equipping character regenerates six energy for each seed consumed
|Iron Sting||Base stat: elemental mastery
Skill: dealing elemental damage increases all damage by 6% for six seconds. Max two stacks, can only occur once every one second
What are the best Genshin Jean artifacts?
Viridescent Venerer is the best set for both of Jean’s builds. It doesn’t boost her personal damage as much as other sets, but the resistance shred it offers gives a substantial increase to the whole team.
Alternatively, if there’s already an anemo character on her team with the four piece VV set already equipped, you can combine two pieces of VV with two pieces of an attack set like Gladiator’s Finale or Shimenawa’s Reminiscence. However, this is a less flexible kit as it does require that extra anemo VV user to appear in each of her comps, so we generally advise against it.
|Viridescent Venerer||Two equipped: 15% anemo damage bonus
Four equipped: Swirl damage is increased by 60%. Your opponent’s elemental resistance to the element infused in the swirl is decreased by 40% for ten seconds
|Gladiator’s Finale/Shimenawa’s Reminiscence/other two-piece attack set||Two equipped: increases attack by 18%|
