Genshin Impact just released its new anticipated Version 3.3 Patch Update of Sumeru. Even though Sumeru’s main quest has been concluded, there are still more untold stories to be shown one of them being one of the main antagonists of Sumeru Archon Quest, The Balladeer who now calls himself the Wanderer. In this guide, many fans have waited for his side of the story to be told and his highly anticipated banner, along with another new playable character called Faruzan in Genshin Impact. This guide will discuss all the information about Faruzan in Genshin Impact along with the best artifacts, best weapons, and talent materials.
Faruzan is the new 4-star character that has been released along with Wanderer in this new patch. She is quite a mysterious individual with an interesting origin. She will be an amazing Support to be teamed with Wanderer to boost his damage and may help other Anemo DPS characters.
Faruzan: Character information and description
A researcher from “one hundred years ago.” She enjoys self-identifying as everyone’s senior and has significant knowledge of ancient scripts and machines of all kinds. Faruzan is a 4* Star Anemo Bow playable Character in Genshin Impact. She is the first dedicated Anemo damage buffer in the game.
Just like Kujou Sara and Gorou, Faruzan seems to possess a niche kit that is mostly tailored towards a certain Elemental Type and 5-star playable character. Her kit is centred on buffing Anemo characters and reducing Anemo’s Resistance to enemies.
Faruzan: Playstyle and Skillset
In this section of the guide, we will discuss the playstyle and skillset of Faruzan in Genshin Impact.
|Normal Attack: Parthian Shot||Normal Attack|
|Performs up to 4 consecutive shots with a bow.|
|Performs a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG. While aiming, mighty winds will accumulate on the arrowhead. A fully charged wind arrow will deal with Anemo DMG.||Charged Attack|
|Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, hitting opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.||Plunging Attack|
|Wind Realm of Nasamjnin||Elemental Skill|
|Faruzan deploys a polyhedron that deals AoE Anemo DMG to nearby opponents. She will also enter the Manifest Gale state. While in the Manifest Gale state, Faruzan’s next fully charged shot will consume this state and will become a Hurricane Arrow that contains high-pressure currents. This arrow deals with Anemo DMG based on the DMG of a fully charged Aimed Shot from “Normal Attack: Parthian Shot.” Pressurized Collapse The Hurricane Arrow will apply a Pressurized Collapse effect to the opponent or character hit. This effect will be removed after a short delay, creating a vortex that deals with AoE Anemo DMG and pulls nearby objects and opponents in. If Hurricane Arrow does not hit any opponent or character, it will create a Pressurized Collapse effect at its point of impact. The vortex DMG is considered an Elemental Skill DMG.|
|The Wind’s Secret Ways||Elemental Burst|
|Faruzan deploys a Dazzling Polyhedron that unleashes a Whirlwind Pulse and deals AoE Anemo DMG. While the Dazzling Polyhedron persists, it will continuously move along a triangular path. Once it reaches each corner of that triangular path, it will unleash 1 more Whirlwind Pulse. Whirlwind Pulse ·When the Whirlwind Pulse is unleashed, it will apply Perfidious Wind’s Bale to nearby opponents, decreasing their Anemo RES. ·The Whirlwind Pulse will also apply Prayerful Wind’s Benefit to all nearby party members when it is unleashed, granting them an Anemo DMG Bonus.|
Faruzan’s Passive Talents
Ascension 4 passive: Impetuous Flow
When Faruzan is in the Manifest Gale state created by Wind Realm of Nasamjnin, the amount of time taken to charge a shot is decreased by 60%, and she can apply The Wind’s Secret Ways’ Perfidious Wind’s Bale to opponents who are hit by the vortex created by Pressurized Collapse.
Ascension 1 passive: Lost Wisdom of the Seven Caverns
When characters affected by The Wind’s Secret Ways‘ Prayerful Wind’s Gift deal Anemo DMG using Normal, Charged, Plunging Attacks, Elemental Skills, or Elemental Bursts to opponents, they will gain the Hurricane Guard effect: This DMG will be increased based on 32% of Faruzan’s Base ATK. 1 instance of Hurricane Guard can occur once every 0.8s. This DMG Bonus will be cleared after Prayerful Wind’s Benefit expires or after the effect is triggered once.
Utility passive: Tomes Light the Path
Gains 25% more rewards when dispatched on a Sumeru Expedition for 20 hours.
In-Depth Talent Guide and Priority
Elemental Burst>Elemental Skill>Normal Attacks
Faruzan is a dedicated Anemo Support unit. Her most useful Talent is her Elemental Burst. She provides Anemo Damage Bonus and Anemo Resistance Shred due to her Burst. The Buff is only applied once the Polyhedron hits an opponent. The Burst as useful as it seems on paper is very clunky in-game as it rotates every second in a fixed 3 corner way. Elemental Skill is weak since she only generates two energy particles which do not help with her Energy Recharge issues. The skill can temporarily displace enemies although not as good of crowd control and displacement as Venti, Kazuha, or Sucrose.
In this section of the guide, we will discuss the different constellations of Faruzan in Genshin Impact.
|C1||Truth by Any Means||Faruzan can fire off a maximum of 2 Hurricane Arrows using fully charged Aimed Shots while under the effect of a single Manifest Gale created by Wind Realm of Nasamjnin.|
|C2||Overzealous Intellect||The duration of the Dazzling Polyhedron created by The Wind’s Secret Ways is increased by 6s.|
|C3||Spirit-Orchard Stroll||Increases the Level of Wind Realm of Nasamjnin by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.|
|C4||Divine Comprehension||The vortex created by Pressurized Collapses will restore Energy to Faruzan based on the number of opponents hit: If it hits 1 opponent, it will restore 2 Energy for Faruzan. Each additional opponent hit will restore 0.5 more Energy for Faruzan. A maximum of 4 Energy can be restored to her per vortex.|
|C5||Wonderland of Rumination||Increases the Level of The Wind’s Secret Ways by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.|
|C6||The Wondrous Path of Truth||Characters affected by The Wind’s Secret Ways’ Prayerful Wind’s Benefit have 40% increased CRIT DMG when they deal with Anemo DMG. When the active character deals DMG while affected by Prayerful Wind’s Benefit, they will apply Pressurized Collapse to the opponent damaged. This effect can be triggered once every 3s. This CD is shared between all party members.|
Faruzan’s Constellations Value
When it comes to Constellations, it may be hard to come by for 5 stars and in some cases 4 stars. Nonetheless, Constellations helps with many of the character’s kit issues and boost their damage significantly. Faruzan has many issues with her kit mainly due to her clunky play-style and bad Energy issues.
|C1||Allows firing an extra Hurricane Arrow. Not very useful as it takes time to fire the arrows and hence does not help with her high Energy Cost to generate particles.|
|C2||Longer Elemental Burst duration. Helpful as it lasts longer and provides buffs longer.|
|C3||Increases Elemental Skill level. Not useful as her Elemental Skill is not a reliable kit.|
|C4||Adds an energy restoration mechanic that allows more energy particles to be generated. Very useful for her energy issues.|
|C5||Increases Elemental Burst level. Good constellation although not the best.|
|C6||The best constellation to have and helps with many of Faruzan’s kit issues. Provides 40% crit to Anemo characters and makes her kit and buffs easier to rotate.|
Best Artifact Builds for Faruzan in Genshin Impact
Faruzan has severe Energy Recharge issues which hinder her character completely and make it difficult to use her in team rotations. Due to her very high Elemental Burst cost (80 Energy Cost), it is highly recommended that players should stack Energy Recharge on her to a certain threshold. At least over 200%, ER is sufficient enough.
As she is a Support unit, Faruzan can utilize many of the Support buffer Artifact Sets such as Noblesse Oblige. Although pairing Faruzan with an Energy Recharge Set pieces are the best option coupled with other 2 pieces such as Attack Set or Anemo set. Even though Faruzan’s Anemo damage buff is scaled with her Attack, it should not be the main priority when building her as a Support. The attack difference is negligible. Having said that, pairing Faruzan with a 2 piece Attack bonus is good.

Best Weapons for Faruzan in Genshin Impact

DPS Faruzan can be done with a Crit weapon but Faruzan will still have Energy Recharge issues. Luckily there are a variety of good Bow weapons that are F2P friendly.

Special dish and Name card
In this section of the Genshin Impact Faruzan guide, we will let players know her special dish recipe, as well as her Namecard, obtained once you reach Friendship Level 10.
Namecard: Sealed Secret
- Dish Name: Traditionally-Made Charcoal-Baked Ajilenakh Cake
- Dish Effect: Revives the selected character and restores 20% of Max HP, then restores an additional 1500 HP.
- In-Game Description: Faruzan’s specialty. The dark and sweet cake, lying as it does atop a minty-green sauce bed, almost looks like some enigmatic mechanism. Your hesitation must have somehow reached Faruzan, for she then straightened up to assertively reassure you that this was a traditional dish in Sumeru and that its flavor is guaranteed. But you can’t help wondering… Is it really a ‘traditional’ dish that catered to the tastes of Sumeru people a hundred years ago?
