Overview

Zhongli is a support focused Geo character that provides many utilities to help with survivability and damage. Many of his skills scales off of his max HP, and he naturally has one of the highest base HP out of all the other characters, making it easy to reach around 30k+ HP with some artifacts. He can create a Geo shield that lasts longer than its cooldown, and can reduce all damage taken at 150% damage absorption, as well as reducing all nearby enemy's RES by 20%. His elemental burst can deal respectable damage even with a full HP build, and it also petrifies most enemies for a few seconds.

Recommended Builds

DPS Build

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 several ways to go about it. If you only want to focus mostly on his normal/charge attack damage, you can go with 4 piece Gladiators Finale, or Retracing Bolide. Otherwise, it's either 2 piece Bloodstained Chivalry with 2 Gladiator or with 2 Noblesse Oblige for higher meteor damage. Go with the one that fits your preferred playstyle, or the one with better substats on the artifacts. 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

If you want to build him for full HP that can reach up to 50k max HP, since there are no 5 star artifacts that gives more HP, you'll want to just get any HP mainstat artifacts. This does give some options as to what set to use, 4 piece Noblesse Oblige gives some nice attack buff after you use his burst, 4 Archaic Petra is also a nice supporting ability if you can make good use out of it. 2 piece petra with 2 noblesse if you want to just see higher numbers on Zhongli's damage. For the weapon, Black Tassel is the one and only main choice due to its secondary HP% stat.

For a more damaging support build, then ideally it's 2 petra with 2 noblesse. The only thing you want to change is mostly just their artifact mainstats. HP% on sands and crown pieces for a comfortable 30k+ HP with up to 50k+/- damage on crit for the meteor. 4 piece noblesse works as well. For the weapon, either Deathmatch or Favonius Lance for easily accessible weapons, otherwise it's Primordial Jade Winged-Spear for possible best in slot weapon.

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 works well with Geo main character because their elemental skill and burst creates Geo constructs. 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.

A superconduct team is also very good on him since most of his attacks are physical, and he attacks fast. Fischl or Beidou are really good Electro options to bring. As for Cryo, there's Kaeya or Diona. Chongyun won't be a good option since his elemental skill makes normal attacks into Cryo within the field, which won't work well for superconduct physical damage focused setup.

Plunging Attack

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

  • If their maximum number hasn't been reached, creates a Stone Stele.

  • Deals 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.

Stone Stele

When created, deals AoE Geo DMG.
Additionally, it will intermittently resonate with other nearby Geo constructs, dealing Geo DMG to nearby opponents.
The Stone Stele is considered a Geo construct that can both be climbed and used to block attacks.
Only one Stele created by Zhongli himself may initially exist at any one time.

Jade Shield

Characters protected by the Jade Shield will decrease the Elemental RES and Physical RES of opponents in a small AoE by 20%. This effect cannot be stacked.

Zhongli in Character's Voicelines

CharacterIn-Game Transcription
Keqing
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

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!

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...

hot to calculate the damage output ?
if we have some stats, look likes :
ex ==> elemental burst Zhongli (all talent unlocked & no cons)
- skill dmg = 500%
- HP = 20.000
- geo dmg bonus = 50%
- total atk = 1.000
- crit rate = 100%
- crit dmg = 120%

please give a formula about this, thanks

Damage calculation formula is quite complicated to explain. If you only want the formula, you can find it here:

Plugging in your numbers, it's something like:
(1000(your attack) * (1 + 50%)(element damage bonus)*(500%(skill multiplier))*50%(same level between you and your enemy)*(1 - 10%(enemy resistance)) + 20.000*33%(Zhongli 4th ascension passive)) * 120%(crit damage modifier)

Not entirely sure yet if the 4th ascension passive is before the crit, but the result is roughly around 7425.
