First published: | Updated:

Welcome to Pocket Gamer's detailed Genshin Impact Fischl guide! Fischl is a mysterious girl who is an investigator for Mondstadt’s Adventurers Guild and likes to roleplay as a princess. She travels with a night raven named Oz and claims to others that she is from another world.

Fischl wears an eyepatch so that her vision isn’t obstructed while possessing Oz. She’s polite, which most find peculiar, but Oz ends up speaking for her most of the time, anyways.

In the guide below you will find the following features:

Electro / A Tier / 4* Rarity / Bow

In Genshin Impact, Fischl is an Electro Bow User and her raven, Oz, can stay out on the field and deliver setups for elemental reactions. In doing so, she also delivers a lot of energy for other teammates to use, making sure you’re always ready for your next attack.

How to get Fischl in Genshin Impact?

You can obtain Fischl in the permanent banner, Wanderlust Invocation.

Genshin Impact Fischl Combat Info (Strengths and Weaknesses)

Fischl Strengths


  • Fischl has crazy fast attack speed
  • Her Skill and Burst remain on the field after you swap to another team member
  • Fischl can apply Electro and help set up Elemental Reactions


  • You’re going to spend some time (and perhaps money) to get Fischl’s Constellation high enough for her to be worth it.
  • Her Elemental Skill, while useful, can take a while to be available again

Best Build for Fischl in Genshin Impact

With Oz’s ability to spread Electro on the field and produce energy for the rest of your team, it would be wise to invest in using the Skyward Harp weapon to increase her CRIT. Using the Thundering Fury artifact set to boost her Electro damage and the damage of Overload, Electro-Charged, and Superconduct reactions is a must to maximize her potential.

Best Party Members to match Fischl with in Genshin Impact

Premium (Gacha) Team

In Genshin Impact, Fischl is a great Support, thanks to her friend Oz. Regardless of who else you are working with, when Oz is on the field, you’ll have the ability to create reactions and dish out damage. Use Venti as additional Support for crowd control and creating elemental combinations.

Childe (Tartaglia) is a great option for your DPS, as his Hydro, when combined with Electro, can cause Electrocharge reactions. Qiqi is a good choice for a Healer, as she can work well with Fischl to make Superconduct happen over and over, which will keep enemies from doing much damage.

F2P Team

Fischl can be used as a DPS to do most of the damage and work with the other characters to create reactions. Xiangling works great for creating an Overload reaction and dealing additional damage. Kaeya can act as the sub-DPS to do additional damage and create Superconduct reactions. Barbara serves as a Healer, who can heal the damage dealers, especially Fischl, even when she’s not doing Electro damage on the field.
