The “Quick TL;DR” guide series:

I’ll get straight into it.

PSA from OP: As per usual, thank you so much for the dedicated testers (lol you whaling freaks) who stay up with me and put up with my list of questions! To readers: I apologize that it’s a bit long. There are a lot of things and I wanted to make sure I covered all bases!

PSA #1: A DPS is a literal GOD and their team is their worshipers. Worship your god and they’ll make your enemies disappear; otherwise, you better start praying.

PSA #2: Both Zhongli’s abilities scale off ATK, but both also benefit A LOT from HP. As Lord of Geo, he WILL have his order… just make sure you brought some money…

Summons a giant, girthy rod from the ground. PULSES with geo DMG to nearby enemies. I’ll stop with the innuendos…

PSA #3: E has two ways you can use it (BUCKLE THE FK UP LOL)

  1. Tap E to summon a stone stele that does damage where it’s spawned

  2. It will pulse 15 times, doing geo DMG to nearby enemies (lasts 15 seconds, 1 pulse = 1 sec)

  3. Nearby geo structures will also pulse geo DMG (will list what can/cannot below)

  4. Can only have ONE out at a time (two if you have C1)

  5. ABSOLUTELY POOPS CRYSTALLIZE SHARDS

  6. CAN CLIMB THE PILLAR AND IT BLOCKS STUFF

What resonates with pillar:

Geo MC EGeo MC Q (all 3 walls pulse)Ninguang E (pulses from center of gate, not sides)
Ninguang QGeo Hypostasis pillarsGeo Samachurl pillars

2) Hold E to summon a shield

  1. Will do massive AoE geo DMG on activation

  2. Chunks geo elements nearby (up to two targets – clarification below)

  3. Shield lasts 20 sec

  4. Scales off HP

What Hold E can absolutely delete:

ANY ORE (#1 MINER)GEO SHIELDS/ARMORROCK SHIELDS
Geo Samachurl pillarsGeo Hypostatis pillars

Tap E at the start of the fight, then Hold E when it comes off CD. Always position to attack enemies TOWARDS the pillar to maximize damage.

Masochism… You literally get hit to get stronger…

YEETS A GODDAMN METEOR AT YOUR FOES. PETRIFIES ALL TYPES OF ENEMIES AND THEY CAN’T MOVE. LORD OF GEO DON’T MESS AROUND.

Zhongli is literally one of the few characters that can hit over 12K with ZERO assistance/buffs… This is why…

WEAPON #1 (Recommended for ORDER): Vortex Vanquisher

How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)

Has base ATK scaling and increases shield + overall damage output a ton (literally made for him)

Currently still testing between Deathmatch, Jade Winged-Spear, and Skyward to see which is best in slot. Will keep this updated, but Vortex Vanquisher feels extremely good at the moment.

WEAPON #2 (Recommended for early pebble power): Crescent Pike

How do I get it D: ? – Forge (Prototype x1, Crystal Chunk x50, White Iron Chunk x50)

r/Genshin_Impact - Quick TL;DR dps guide/build for Zhongli

Has base Phys DMG% scaling and 80% of Zhongli’s damage comes from normal attacks

Deathmatch is an extremely good alternative if you have BP. Run Prototype Grudge if you’re planning on taking Zhongli strictly support.

ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for planetary devastation): Retracing Bolide

How do I get it D: ? – Domain of Guyun Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run)

r/Genshin_Impact - Quick TL;DR dps guide/build for Zhongli

Makes shield stronger and basically overcharges normal attacks. You’ll have shield up 24/7, so 100% uptime basically

ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for early slappage): Gladiator’s Finale

How do I get it D: ? – Any World Boss (40 Resin per run)

r/Genshin_Impact - Quick TL;DR dps guide/build for Zhongli

Basically a bootleg early version of Retracing Bolide. Easy to farm and fast slaps!

PSA #4: So two final things: 1) If your goal is main DPS, Vortex Vanquisher + Gladiators will be best. For support, Grudge + Noblesse Oblige will do great. 2) Currently, sitting around 16K -20K HP hits really hard for Q. I won’t say running HP% main stat is recommended (100% go two HP% main stat and Geo DMG% Goblet for support), but having HP% substats does not feel bad at all for DPS Zhongli

Main stats: ATK% Sands / Geo DMG% Goblet / CRIT% Circlet (or CRIT DMG)

Substats: CRIT% > CRIT DMG > HP% or ATK% for Goblet/Circlet > HP or EM

If you want other characters let me know. Hope this helped. Bye.
