Ganyu is an S-Tier main DPS character among the best characters in the Genshin Impact tier list, but she can also work as a Sub DPS. She is in a unique position among bow-wielder characters in Genshin Impact as her Charge Attack has two charge levels, the second of which does AoE Cryo damage.

This allows her to be a Charged Attack Main DPS. As a Cryo Main DPS, she can work very well with Hydro characters when she uses Blizzard Strayer due to the damage bonus against Frozen enemies. Keep in mind that Ganyu won't work well with Xinqiu being her Sub DPS hydro character due to being a ranged character.

Mona is the best Hydro character option to team up with Ganyu, while Tartaglia should work too, although he has a long downtime.

As a Sub-DPS, you will rely on her Elemental Burst for damage and Cryo applications, allowing for reverse melts or making her a good complement for Pyro DPS characters like Diluc and Hu Tao. However, Xinqiu would probably be a better option.

Best Ganyu DPS Artifact Sets Ranked

As already mentioned the first set is ideal for Frozen team comps. The second one is also very good due to the 4-piece bonus and it will work really well with reverse melts if you have Bennett or even better Xiangling on your team who is easy to C6. The third and fourth best set are generic alternatives until until you have the first two sets or until you get the right characters for frozen or reverse melt team comps.

Best Ganyu Sub DPS Artifact Sets Ranked

The first set is a very solid if you use Ganyu as a Sub DPS as it will maximize her Elemental Burst damage. Sets 2 and 3 are decent options until you get 2-pieces of Blizzard Strayer and Noblesse Oblige with the right substats.

The fourth option is there only in case you use Ganyu as a support character to apply Cryo and then switch to a Pyro character for metls.
