Here we will be listing all the Geo characters currently available in Genshin Impact, and provide an opinionated ranking of them all based on their strength and other attributes.
Released in 2020, Genshin Impact is a free-to-play open-world action RPG created by the Chinese videogame developer miHoYo. For a free-to-play game, Genshin Impact packs a punch with its immersive world and a refreshing lineup of characters. In Genshin Impact, players can form a party of up to 4 characters who each use one of seven forms of elemental magic to battle enemies and monsters during their adventures across Teyvat. In this guide, we will specifically be focusing on characters who draw their powers from Geo (earth).
The Geo Archon Morax grants people the power to use soil and rocks in their elemental attacks. However, unlike elements like Cryo, Pyro, Electro, and Hydro, this element does not leave a status effect on enemies unless used in collaboration with another element. That’s why to achieve a Crystalize Elemental Reaction, players need to pair them with characters with the aforementioned powers. In this guide, we will be listing all the Geo characters you can obtain in Genshin Impact and rank them in tiers.
All Geo Characters in Genshin Impact
As of writing, Genshin Impact has introduced up to 5 playable Geo characters in 2021, with 2 upcoming Geo characters announced to be on the way.
Albedo is a 5-star Geo character and a Sword-wielder in Genshin Impact. He not only works as the Chief Alchemist for the Knights of Favonius but is also the Captain of their Investigation team. Through his Solar Isotoma Elemental Skill, he is able to knock off multiple enemies by causing a blast on the ground, causing AoE Geo damage.
Not only that, but he can also gain altitude by lifting himself up on a platform, allowing him to smash the ground from above and hit multiple enemies at once. His elemental burst also allows him to burst geo crystals from the ground over a large area of effect. With that being said, his strength alone makes him a great Main DPS.
Ningguang is a 4-star Geo character and a Catalyst user. She is the Tianquan of the Seven Stars of Liyue, also known as the Liyue Qixing. Moreover, she also owns Liyue’s floating Jade Chamber. Her Jade Screen elemental skill allows her to deal AoE Geo damage to surrounding enemies and provides her with a protective barrier that deflects enemy projectiles. Moreover, her elemental burst allows her to throw a barrage of geo crystals at her enemies. She could be used as a Support character for your team.
Noelle is a 4-star Geo character and who wields a Claymore. Her Breastplate Elemental Skill not provides her with a protective shield but also deals Geo damage to surrounding enemies. While armoured, if Noelle lands a hit on enemies, her allies regain some of their HP. Moreover, through her elemental burst, she is able to imbue her greatsword with the strength of stones and slash hard. She can be used as a Support healer for your party.
You can play as either of the Traveller twins when you first start off Genshin Impact’s story. They are the main protagonist of Genshin Impact’s story and are the only playable characters that can control multiple elements. Their Starfell Sword Geo Elemental Skill allows them to rip out a meteorite from the depths of the earth and deal Geo damage to surrounding enemies. Moreover, with their elemental burst, they can strike the ground hard enough to form a stone wall, dealing AoE Geo damage.
Next, we have the Geo Archon in flesh. Zhongli is a 5-star Geo character who uses a Polearm in Genshin Impact. He is the human vessel of Morax. Through his Dominus Lapidis elemental skill, he is able to erect a stone pillar from the ground that knocks nearby enemies out, dealing AoE Geo damage.
Not only that, but it also acts as a shield that increases Zhongli’s damage absorption to both physical and elemental damage to 150%. It also resonates with surrounding Geo constructs that deals Geo DMG to enemies. Furthermore, his elemental burst calls forth a literal meteorite from the sky that obliterates enemies before they can even know what hit them.

Best Geo Characters in Genshin Impact (A Complete Tier List)
- Best (S-tier) : Albedo, Zhongli
- Good (A-tier) : Ningguang, Noelle
- Average (B-tier) : Traveller
Albedo and Zhongli are our top picks for the best Geo characters in Genshin Impact. Albedo is a reliable DPS as he is able to deal tons of elemental damage over a large area with low cooldowns. So he is very good for crowd control. Apart from his incredible base strength, he is also very fun to play as. Moreover, being able to elevate himself from plain grounds gives him a tactical advantage on the battlefield.
Zhongli on the other hand is one of the best supports you can have in your party. His shield is literally indestructible and the best of any character shields in the game. Not only that, he too is able to cover large ground when it comes to attacking multiple enemies at once. Not to mention his insanely powerful elemental burst that literally paralyzes enemies.
