Chongyun stands out as one of the most valuable 4-star characters in Genshin Impact. His immense value is evident in his inclusion in two popular team compositions: one tailored for free-to-play players and another dedicated to Kamisato Ayato mains.

Chongyun’s versatility makes him an excellent addition to any party, capable of fulfilling the roles of DPS, sub-DPS, or support, depending on the weapons and artifacts bestowed upon him. Notably, his elemental burst, Spirit Blade: Cloud-Parting Star, unleashes a devastating Cryo damage AoE, wreaking havoc upon enemies.
