Genshin Impact: 10 Tips for Playing as Kaedehara Kazuha

One of the most powerful Anemo characters in Genshin Impact is Kaedehara Kazuha, a wandering samurai. When we first meet him, he is a temporary crew member on “The Crux.” This kind and quiet member of the Kaedehara Clan has a really sad story that he carries with him wherever he goes.

10 Tips for Playing as Kaedehara Kazuha in Genshin Impact

Through the Story Quest, we learn that Kazuha is a skilled swordsman who would make a great Anemo support character on your team. The Anemo element causes a reaction called “Swirl,” which makes the damage done by the whole party much worse. When paired with other elemental characters, Kazuha gives constant Swirl reactions, making him a valuable addition to any party.


Viridescent Venerer All the Way

At the moment, any Anemo character in Genshin Impact must have the Viridescent Venerer set. Even though it will be hard to find the right artefacts, it is still worth it to use them for the set bonus.

The 2-piece Viridescent Venerer Set increases Anemo damage by 15%, while the 4-piece set increases Swirl damage by 60% and also lowers the Elemental Resistance of your enemies.


Double Jump Using Kazuha!

Chihayaburu, one of Kazuha’s Elemental Skills, uses the air around him to help him jump higher, making it almost like a double jump. This skill helps a lot when you are exploring the open world and looking for Oculi.

It can also be used in the air if you are about to run out of energy. This will make it possible for him to stay in the air for a longer time. His passive skill, Cloud Strider, is also great because it cuts the party’s stamina use by 20% when they run.


Elemental Mastery Is Key

Elemental Mastery is the sole factor in Kazuha’s damage potential. So, pay close attention to the artifact’s stats and sub-stats as you build him. You will have to grind to get the perfect Viridescent Venerer artefact with Elemental Mastery as the main stat.

When he has all three items, his Elemental Mastery can go up by more than 500. If any artefact has Elemental Mastery as a sub-stat, it will be a bonus on top of the main stats.


Iron Sting – The Best F2P Weapon

The Iron Sting is perfect for Kazuha, who is one of the few characters who will benefit from a free-to-play weapon. When his Elemental Mastery is at its highest level, the 4-Star craftable weapon Iron Sting will boost it by 151. All you have to do is find some White Iron chunks, Crystal Chunks, and a Northlander Sword Billet.

The first two can be found in the open world, but to get the Northlander Billet, you have to beat a weekly boss or buy it from the Mondstadt Souvenir Shop.


Constellation 2 – If You Can

The gacha system in Genshin Impact is known for its low drop rate and hard-to-find characters. But you can choose a C2 Kazuha if you are willing to spend some money. Yamaarashi Tailwind, which is his second Constellation, makes his Elemental Burst stronger. When Kazuha Slash is used, it gives him 200 more Elemental Mastery.

Anyone on your team who is in its range will also get an Elemental Mastery boost. If you want to support Kazuha in the next banner, whenever Mihoyo decides to run it, this huge boost to the team’s Elemental Mastery is worth it.


Prioritize Elemental Burst

Every Genshin Impact player knows that it takes a lot of resources to improve a character’s skills. Since Kazuha will mostly be used as a support character, the best thing to do is to improve his Elemental Burst. When his Elemental Burst is at its highest level, he can be added to a Swirl Reaction. And there’s nothing else like C2 Kazuha if you have it.

Once you have upgraded his Elemental Burst, you can upgrade his Element Skill. The main goal of Kazuha players should be to use Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst.

The way Kazuha’s Elemental Skill is used is different, and it might take some time to get used to it. When you hold and press the Elemental Skill button during a fight, it will have a different effect. When you hold the Elemental Skill, Anemo will do more damage over a larger area than when you use the Press mode. This can be used to get a lot of enemies together and do a lot of AoE damage.

When used together with his dive attack, this ability can be a very powerful combo. You can also use it to gather things like dropped artefacts, weapons, and even the characters’ dolls in one place.


Plunging Attack Bonus

Kazuha can do a powerful Plunging attack called Midare Ranzan after using his Elemental Skill and staying in the air for 10 seconds. This attack’s damage will be turned into Anemo damage on its own. You can also deal different Elemental damage if another element is present.

This will then cause a Swirl reaction, which will add to the damage. If you can time it right, this is a great way to increase the damage done to a lot of enemies.


Battery For Recharge of Elements

Kazuha can be a great player for the team as a battery. It means that when he uses his Elemental Skill, particles will be made that can be used to power up his Elemental Burst. This is very helpful for teams that depend on Elemental Bursts.

You can use Kazuha’s Elemental Skill and then switch to an Anemo DPS character like Xiao to charge up his Elemental Burst.


Elemental DPS Combo

One important thing to remember is that Kazuha can take in elements. When his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst are used, it will absorb another element to create a Swirl reaction. So, use the same element as your main DPS when you use his Elemental Skill. And when he uses Elemental Burst, use a different element to counter the element of the main DPS.

For example, if you’re using Pyro as your main damage-dealing skill, you can use Pyro for Elemental Skill to get a damage bonus from elements. And while using Elemental Burst, use a different element, like Hydro, to create the Vaporize reaction and do more damage.
