- Characters from the Fontaine region are the most popular in the Spiral Abyss due to players being required to progress in the story there.
- The most popular Genshin Impact characters for the Fontaine version of the Spiral Abyss include Yelan, Bennett, Nahida, Kazuha, and Xingqiu.
- Team composition and elemental reactions are important in Genshin Impact, and the effectiveness of characters cannot be solely attributed to their rarity.
A new Genshin Impact chart shows which characters are the most popular in the Fontaine version of the Spiral Abyss. With almost every update, the most and least used Genshin Impact characters change as new playable units swell in popularity when they first arrive in the game. Considering the game requires players to move to an all-new region to progress in the story, characters from that location tend to be more popular among the player base.
The Spiral Abyss in Genshin Impact is a domain that consists of 12 floors filled with different mobs. It can be considered a dungeon or tower players can complete to earn valuable items, including Primogems and Mora. Players can check out which enemies they will encounter on which floor and build a strategy to emerge victorious. With the version 4.0 update, Genshin Impact has brought new enemies and bosses from the Fontaine region to the Spiral Abyss and changed the buffs players will get on each floor. For example, they will now receive elemental mastery and increased elemental damage on the top floor.
Reddit user soapz231 shared a chart that shows the most popular Genshin Impact characters for the Fontaine version of the Spiral Abyss. Yelan, Bennett, Nahida, Kazuha, and Xingqiu came first among all playable units, while Heizou and Chongy found themselves at the very bottom of the list. Interestingly, the five-star catalyst user Kokomi is ranked below Xingqiu by one spot. It’s worth noting that these usage rates are calculated based on the number of players that own the character.
In comparison to the previous version of the Spiral Abyss, there are some placement changes on the list. For example, Genshin Impact‘s Bennett advanced to the top tier, unlike other old banners like Xinyan, Amber, and Aloy. Some characters’ usage rates are also inflated by the fact that only a small portion of players own their banners.
Genshin Impact places vital importance on team compositions, which consist of four playable units with different abilities. These lineups help players overcome an array of challenges they will encounter in the game. They also offer elemental reactions that can be applied to create electrifying combos. Luckily, players have access to a catalog of characters in Genshin Impact to put on their respective teams and dominate the current meta. It’s also worth noting that the effectiveness of team compositions can’t be attributed to characters’ rarity, as many four-star units can keep up with others thanks to their versatile kit.
Genshin Impact is available for Mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
