Official Character Trailer

Overview

Zhongli is a mix of support and damage dealer. He uses polearm so his attacks are quite fast, and also has a unique charge attack that's useful for positioning. His elemental skill places a stone slab to deal damage, and has synergy with other Geo structures. Holding the skill will detonate the Geo structures to deal some damage while also gaining a shield based on his max hp. His elemental burst deals damage and petrifies enemies, immobilizing them for a short period of time.

Recommended Builds

DPS Build

From the early looks, Zhongli is best with his normal attacks and physical damage increase IF you want to build him as your main DPS. This is because his elemental skill has low damage for tap, and long cooldown for hold. The elemental burst may not be super reliable since you need to keep charging it as well as wait for the cooldown.

There are 2 options if you want to build him for normal atk damage. 2 piece Bloodstained Chivalry with 2 piece Gladiators Finale, or 4 piece Retracing Bolide. Go with the one that you have good main stat and substats on the artifact. You mainly want Phys DMG increase on the cup, and crit rate on the crown, crit dmg up if you use a crit rate up weapon.

The weapon of choice is Crescent Pike if you are free to play. It helps boost damage by a noticeable amount, and can be refined for further increase if you happen to get the drop material from weekly bosses. Otherwise, any 5 star polearm is a good option, Primordial Jade Winged-Spear being the better one, or the weapon that will be coming with Zhongli's banner.

Support Build

For support, there's 4 piece Archaic Petra. It mostly works if you get the shield from "Crystalize" reaction, a pretty conditional restriction, but can boost the damage by a noticeable amount when done right. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with just 4 piece Noblesse Oblige, or some 2 piece energy recharge sets like Scholar or The Exile to spam his elemental burst often. Focus on HP main stat and substats to increase the strength of his shield, and energy recharge substats for faster elemental burst charge.

For weapon, since you won't really be using him to deal damage, go with weapons that give energy recharge like the craftable Prototype Grudge.

Team Recommendations

If you are building him for damage, then you're going to want to put him in a party with at least another Geo user to help with energy gain. Zhongli might have a synergy with the Geo main character if his elemental skill works with the Geo construct. There's also Ningguang that can really generate a lot of energy if you have her at constellation level 2. For the other 2 in your party, you can consider someone like Xingqiu for extra durability as well as high damage elemental burst support, and / or double Pyro characters for the resonance using characters like Bennett for easy atk increase.

CharacterIn-Game Transcription

Keqing
The gentleman from the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor? Clearly, he's an extremely learned individual, and I do have a lot of respect for him. But his mindset is too traditional for me — he thinks in the same tired old terms as Rex Lapis did.. If he were more of an original thinker, I'm sure he'd be a great asset to me in reaching my objectives./td>
Beidou
Beidou
You mean the gentleman from Wangsheng Funeral Parlor? My men sometimes speak of the rumors surrounding him — he sounds interesting. Yes, if I get the chance I'd like to meet him someday.
Xiangling
Xiangling
I've come across a lot of fussy eaters, but Mr. Zhongli is very particular and has no problem getting straight to what he has to say. The first time I served him salt and pepper tofu, he took just one bite, and then proceeded to say: "It would be better to try sea salt extracted from the shallow seas of Guyun Stone Forest, because it would bring a fresh sense of depth to the tofu." I tried it and the taste was just so different! He's just amazing, don't you think!?
Xingqiu
Xingqiu
My father and brother entertained that gentleman as a guest once. From the way they were acting, he must be a very high-profile figure indeed. I also heard that he directs funerals for adepti, so he must surely have some inside information. We should do some digging and see what we can find out about him!
Tartaglia (Childe)

There's far more to that man than meets the eye. As for the extent of his power... lots to look forward to, I think.
Tartaglia (Childe)
Tartaglia (Childe)
Tell me, how has Mr. Zhongli been lately? Not bad, you say? Seems he's had no problem acclimating to "mortal" life. Hmph, he sure had me fooled. Such a fiasco mustn't be so easily forgiven! The only way to reconciliation is fierce combat! What do you mean I'm no match for him? Hahaha...

Normal Attack (Combat Talent)

"Normal Attack

Performs up to 6 consecutive spear strikes.

Charged Attack

Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward, causing stone spears to fall along his path.

Plunging Attack

Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact."

Elemental Skill

Every mountain, rock and inch of land is filled with the power of Geo, but those who can wield such powers freely are few and far between.

Press

Commands the omnipresent power of earth to solidify into a Stone Stele, dealing AoE Geo DMG.

Additionally, the Stone Stele will resonate with other Geo Constructs in the vicinity, dealing Geo DMG to surrounding enemies.

The Stone Stele is considered a Geo Construct, and can both be climbed and used to block attacks. Only one may exist at any one time.

Hold

Causes nearby Geo energy to explode, causing the following effects:

  • Creates a shield of jade. The shield's DMG Absorption scales based on Zhongli's Max HP, and absorbs Geo DMG 250% more effectively.
  • Causes AoE Geo DMG.
  • If there are nearby targets with the Geo element, it will drain a large amount of Geo element from a maximum of 2 such targets. This effect does not cause DMG.

Elemental Burst

Brings a falling meteor down to earth, dealing massive Geo DMG to opponents caught in its AoE and applying the Petrification status to them.

Petrification

Opponents affected by the Petrification status cannot move.
