With her Elemental Burst, Faruzan deploy a "Dazzling Polyhedron" that moves along a certain path, and provide and Anemo Damage Bonus to all nearby team members. It also releases a Whirleind Pulse periodically and decreases Anemo Resistance of nearby opponents.

This guide is based on the Community Character Builds by the Genshin Helper Team.


Skills Overview

Normal Attack: Parthian Shot

Normal Attack
Performs up to 4 consecutive shots with a bow.

Charged Attack
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 Anemo DMG.

Plunging 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.


Elemental Skill: Wind Realm of Nasamjnin

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 Anemo DMG based on the DMG of a fully charged Aimed Shot from "Normal Attack: Parthian Shot."
Manifest Gale Duration: 18 seconds
Cooldown: 6 seconds

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 AoE Anemo DMG and pulls nearby objects and opponents in. If the 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 Elemental Skill DMG.


Elemental Burst: The Wind's Secret Ways

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.


Ascension 1: 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 4: Lost Wisdom of the Seven Caverns

When characters affected by Elemental Burst's 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.


Passive Talent: Tomes Light the Path

Gains 25% more rewards when dispatched on a Sumeru Expedition for 20 hours.


TLDR / Rotation

(Highly recommended in most scenarios) For funneling particles to Faruzan:
Skill --> Charged Shot --> Burst
By using the Skill and Charged Shot right before Burst allows Faruzan to gain the particles created by the Pressurized Collapse effect.

For funneling particles to other units:
Skill --> Burst --> Charged Shot
In contrast, if you use Charged Shot to activate the Pressurized Collapse right before swapping characters, this allows your next character to gain the particles created.

At C6 bear in mind, that the Charged shot portion of the rotation no longer becomes necessary since your burst will start activating the Pressurized Collapses instead.

1) Favonius Warbow (ATK: 454 • Energy Recharge: 61.3%)

CRIT Hits have a 60/70/80/90/100% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12/10.5/9/7.5/6s.

2) Elegy for the End (ATK: 608 • Energy Recharge: 55.1%)

A part of the "Millennial Movement" that wanders amidst the winds. Increases Elemental Mastery by 60/75/90/105/120. When the Elemental Skills or Elemental Bursts of the character wielding this weapon hit opponents, that character gains a Sigil of Remembrance.
This effect can be triggered once every 0.2s and can be triggered even if said character is not on the field. When you possess 4 Sigils of Remembrance, all of them will be consumed and all nearby party members will obtain the "Millennial Movement: Farewell Song" effect for 12s. "Millennial Movement: Farewell Song" increases Elemental Mastery by 100/125/150/175/200 and increases ATK by 20/25/30/35/40%. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Remembrance for 20s. Of the many effects of the "Millennial Movement," buffs of the same type will not stack.
Note: Usually only a better option at higher constellation levels such as [C6] where her energy needs can be met without Favonius passive particles.

3) End of the Line (ATK: 510 • Energy Recharge: 45.9%)

Triggers the Flowrider effect after using an Elemental Skill, dealing 80/100/120/140/160% ATK as AoE DMG upon hitting an opponent with an attack.

When attacks hit opponents, this weapon will switch to the next state. This weapon can change states once every 7s. The character equipping this weapon can still trigger the state switch while not on the field.
