Want to know the best Genshin Impact Cyno build? The new Genshin Impact character is an Electro polearm user. He’s available on the current banner, appearing alongside some other new faces in Sumeru including two Hydro users, Candace in the first phase of 3.1 and Nilou in the second phase.

Cyno is a five-star character and the main DPS role in most parties. Here are the artifacts and weapons we recommend for the best Genshin Impact Cyno build. You can also read up on the best Cyno team comp and how to get Cyno’s ascension materials to level up.

Cyno DPS build

As Cyno is Electro, he pairs well with the new Dendro element causing a powerful catalyze effect, but there are a few different ways to build Cyno depending on who else you have in your party. If your party features Hydro characters, you could also capitalise on the hyperbloom reaction.

The best Genshin Impact Cyno build is:

  • Weapon: Primordial Jade Winged-Spear
  • Artifacts: Gilded Dreams (four-piece)

Cyno is set to have a powerful Elemental Burst, so we want to use artifacts and weapons that complement this ability to convert normal attacks to Electro damage. Cyno needs a good all-rounder weapon, which mainly focuses on upping his damage output, so we’ve chosen Primordial Jade Winged-Spear. This five-star polearm provides a 22.1% critical damage increase and attack of 674, alongside increasing attack on hit. You could also use Staff if the Scarlet Sands which features on the current weapon banner, or the Staff of Homa as another option to increase HP and attack bonus.

For the artifacts we’ve gone for the four-piece Gilded Dreams to provide Elemental Mastery +80 and additional buffs when elemental reactions are triggered. Alternatively, Thundering Fury is another good option for Electro damage bonus +15% for the two piece and increased damage caused by Overloaded, Electro-Charged, Superconduct, and Hyperbloom by 40% – both of these options are great, so whatever you can get your hands on.
