Best Gorou Builds

Gorou is one of the supporting characters in Genshin Impact. There are a lot of different builds and roles for Gorou, but most players are using support builds. He is a decent character, but when you compare him to other supporting characters, you will notice that he does not perform that well. There is a much better option for your team. In our opinion, Gorou is the A-tier character in Genshin Impact, while for some players he is S-tier.

Best Gorou Weapons

Favonius Warbow

CRIT hits have a 60/70/80/90/100% chance to generate 1 Elemental Orb, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12/10.5/9/7.5/6s.

Elegy for the End

A part of the “Millennial Movement” that wanders amidst the winds. Increases Elemental Mastery by 60/75/90/105/120. When the Elemental Skills or Elemental Bursts of the character wielding this weapon hit opponents, that character gains a Sigil of Remembrance. This effect can be triggered once every 0.2s and can be triggered even if said character is not on the field. When you possess 4 Sigils of Remembrance, all of them will be consumed and all nearby party members will obtain the “Millennial Movement: Farewell Song” effect for 12s. “Millennial Movement: Farewell Song” increases Elemental Mastery by 100/125/150/175/200 and increases ATK by 20/25/30/35/40%. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Remembrance for 20s. Of the many effects of the “Millennial Movement,” buffs of the same type will not stack.

There are a lot of team comps that you can make in Genshin Impact with Gorou. We recommend team comps that we think are best for Gorou. There are a lot of different characters, and there is a high chance that you do not have some of them. So you should create your team comps, test them out, and see what is best for you and your playstyle. With that, you will become better at the game, and you will know how your team works.

Gorou Skills Talents

Ripping Fang Fletching: Normal Attack

Normal Attack
Performs up to 4 consecutive shots with a bow.

Charged Attack
Perform a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG. While aiming, stone crystals will accumulate on the arrowhead. A fully charged crystalline arrow will deal Geo DMG.

Plunging Attack
Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Inuzaka All-Round Defense: Elemental Skill

Deals AoE Geo DMG and sets up a General’s War Banner.

General’s War Banner
Provides up to 3 buffs to active characters within the skill’s AoE based on the number of Geo characters in the party at the time of casting:

  • 1 Geo character: Adds “Standing Firm” – DEF Bonus.
  • 2 Geo characters: Adds “Impregnable” – Increased resistance to interruption.
  • 3 Geo characters: Adds “Crunch” – Geo DMG Bonus.

Gorou can deploy only 1 General’s War Banner on the field at any one time. Characters can only benefit from 1 General’s War Banner at a time. When a party member leaves the field, the active buff will last for 2s.

Juuga Forward Unto Victory: Elemental Burst

Displaying his valor as a general, Gorou deals Aoe Geo DMG and creates a field known as General’s Glory to embolden his comrades.

General’s Glory
This field has the following properties:

  • Like the General’s War Banner created by Inuzaka All-Round Defense, provides buffs to active characters within the skill’s AoE based on the number of Geo characters in the party. Also moves together with your active character.
  • Generates 1 Crystal Collapse every 1.5s that deals AoE Geo DMG to 1 opponent within the skill’s AoE.
  • Pulls 1 elemental shard in the skill’s AoE to your active character’s position every 1.5s (elemental shards are created by Crystallize reactions).

If a General’s War Banner created by Gorou currently exists on the field when his ability is used, it will be destroyed. In addition, for the duration of General’s Glory, Gorou’s Elemental Skill “Inazuka All-Round Defense” will not create the General’s War Banner. If Gorou falls, the effects of General’s Glory will be cleared.

Gorou Passive Talents

Heedless of the Wind and Weather: First Ascension Passive

Gorou Constellations

Level 1: Rushing Hound: Swift as the Wind

When characters (other than Gorou) within the AoE of Gorou’s General’s War Banner or General’s Glory deal Geo DMG to opponents, the CD of Gorou’s Inuzaka All-Round Defense is decreased by 2s. This effect can occur once every 10s.

Level 2: Sitting Hound: Steady as a Clock

Increases the Level of Inuzaka All-Round Defense by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.

Level 4: Lapping Hound: Warm as Water

When General’s Glory is in the “Impregnable” or “Crunch” states, it will also heal active characters within its AoE by 50% of Gorou’s own DEF every 1.5s.

Level 5: Striking Hound: Thunderous Force

Increases the Level of Juuga: Forward Unto Victory by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.

Level 6: Valiant Hound: Mountainous Fealty

For 12s after using Inuzaka All-Round Defense or Juuga: Forward Unto Victory, increases the CRIT DMG of all nearby party members’ Geo DMG based on the buff level of the skill’s field at the time of use:

  • “Standing Firm”: +10%
  • “Impregnable”: +20%
