With a proper combination of various skills of different characters, we can apply different elemental reactions and manipulate our game fights. 

Players often come across a point when they have to choose a banner carefully to wish from due to limited primogems and Intertwined Fate.

So players must know basic character details to maximize their team performance. So here we are with a list of top 5 4-star characters in no particular order:

Genshin Impact – Shikanoin Heizhou

The in-game description of Heizhou describes him as a young prodigy from the Tenryou commission. Since he is introduced in the game quite recently, he we are yet to see his full potential as DPS in the team. Regardless, he is still “OP”.

Weapon

Shikanoin Heizhou’s weapon is a Catalyst.

Elemental Skill

With his elemental skill, Heizhou punches a “Heartstopper strike,” which deals Anemo damage to the enemies. This strike can also be charged up to four “Declension effects,” further increasing the damage.

With his elemental burst, Heizhou kicks air in front of him, which creates a powerful gust of wind and deals Anemo damage to the enemies. It also reacts with the first element, which it comes in contact with and further increases the damage.
