Welcome to Pocket Gamer's detailed Genshin Impact Aloy guide! Aloy is a hunter with mysterious circumstances surrounding her birth, as it is unknown who her parents were and why she was shunned by most of her tribespeople. Her search for answers leads her out into the wild world, where mechanical beasts and dangerous humans roam, presenting an ever-looming danger.

Aloy finally discovered her past and fought a battle to save the world from looming destruction by fighting an AI to keep it from destroying her future. She has come to Teyvat in search of new challenges and adventures.

In the guide below you will find the following features:

Best Party Members to match Aloy with in Genshin Impact

Premium (Gacha) Team

In Genshin Impact, Aloy is a great DPS, delivering blow after blow of intense Cryo damage. Tartaglia is a great choice to back up Aloy, as he can help set up Freeze elemental reactions. Zhongli is another perfect pair, as he brings much-needed shields to the party and can help reduce Elemental resistance. Diona will serve as a healer and can both give elemental resonance with Aloy and provide additional shields.

F2P Team

Aloy is your DPS in this team, shooting off Cryo and setting up AOE attacks. Use the Anemo version of Traveler to control mobs and debuff their elemental attacks. Xiangling will give a perfect pair to Aloy’s element to cause Melt reactions. Barbara will serve to heal the party and her Hydro can help cause Freeze when added to Aloy’s Cryo attacks.
