The Best Wriothesley Build in Genshin Impact: Weapons, Gadgets, and More!


    Wriothesley is a five-star Cryo catalyst user who serves as a primary DPS on Cryo-oriented teams. As the formidable Fortress Lord of Meropide, he faces enemies head-on and attacks them at close range using his fists, similar to Shikanoin Heizou. With Wriothesley, you can enjoy a slightly higher level playstyle that involves attacking combos and be very aware of his HP levels. If you’re up for the challenge, here’s everything you need to know about how to build Wriothesley in Genshin Impact, including its best weapons, artifacts, and recommendations for teammates.

    The best weapons for Wriothesley in Genshin Impact

    Wriothesley is a simple DPS unit that relies on attack and critical stats, so there are plenty of weapon options you can choose from.

    Five star options

    The best artifacts for Wriothesley in Genshin Impact

    Wriothesley is a traditional DPS main unit, so it pairs well with attack and crit stats:

    • Beach: Attack percentage
    • Cup: Cryo damage bonus
    • Ring: Critical rate or critical damage (aim for your ideal ratio)
    • Substatisticians: Attack, Critical Rate or Critical Damage (aim for your ideal ratio), and some Energy Recharge or Elemental Mastery (for Melt teams)

    Meanwhile, for artifact sets, there is only one set I would highly recommend gifting to Wriothesley:

    • Marechaussee Hunter four-piece
      • Increases Wriothesley’s normal and charged attacks by 15% and then additionally increases his critical rate whenever his HP increases or decreases. He can easily activate the HP increase and decrease condition thanks to his elemental skill.

    Alternatively, you can go for a four-piece Blizzard Strayer in Freeze teams, but I personally don’t think that’s a practical option as it locks you into a single-team composition. In the meantime, you can also opt for attack-boosting two-piece sets as temporary alternatives before switching to the Marechaussee Hunter.

    Best equipment for Wriothesley in Genshin Impact

    Wriothesley is a selfish DPS that requires a lot of time on the field to do the most damage. As a result, he pairs well with off-field units that can support him without monopolizing field time. Since his Elemental Skill puts him in a state of constant HP depletion and requires his HP levels will always be above 50%. To maximize his damage, I highly recommend pairing him with a good healer.

    That being said, Wriothesley pairs best with the following:

    • Curator – Choose strong healers who can function as supports or elemental buffers, such as Kokomi and Bennett.
    • Shock absorbers – Some great options are Shenhe and Yun Jin, as they offer damage buffs and additional buffs beneficial to Wriothesley. However, you can choose buffers based on who you have on your list.
    • anemo support – great for destroying elemental resistance (via four-piece Viridescent Venerer) and crowd control. Options include Kazuha, Venti, and Sucrose.
    • Pyro Support: Absolutely necessary for Melt-related gear. Some consistent high-performing players include Bennett and Xiangling, but you can also explore other Pyro units.

    Some team template options include:

    • Freeze – Wriothesley + consistent Hydro applicator + Cryo support + Anemo support
    • Reverse melt – Wriothesley + consistent Pyro applicator + Anemo support + any Pyro/Anemo/Cryo character of your choice (choose your preferred resonance bonus)
