Kazuha is one of the best Anemo characters in Genshin Impact with his ability to Swirl. Here is our Kazuha Best Build Guide where you can find the best weapons and artifacts for him.

Kazuha is an Anemo Sword user in Genshin Impact. Kazuha made the decision to abandon his beloved country when the Vision Decree was adopted in Inazuma and he lost a comrade to enemy forces. He is currently living onboard The Crux as a wandering samurai under Captain Beidou’s command. A well-known member of the illustrious Kaedehara Clan is Kazuha. He is also good friends with Gorou, a Geo Bow user.

Kazuha has been the top choice of players for completing the Spiral Abyss in every update. He is incredibly useful against bosses and hordes of enemies. He can act as the best Sub-DPS and support character in the game.

Kazuha Talents

Garyuu Bladework (Normal Attack)

  • Normal Attack – Performs up to 5 rapid strikes.
  • Charged Attack – Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash 2 rapid sword strikes.
  • Plunging Attack – Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact. If this Plunging Attack is triggered by Chihayaburu, it will be converted to Plunging Attack: Midare Ranzan.
  • Plunging Attack (Midare Ranzan) – When a Plunging Attack is performed using the effects of the Elemental Skill Chihayaburu, Plunging Attack DMG is converted to Anemo DMG and will create a small wind tunnel via a secret blade technique that pulls in nearby objects and opponents.

Chihayaburu (Elemental Skill)

Unleashes a secret technique as fierce as the rushing wind that pulls objects and opponents towards Kazuha’s current position before launching opponents within the AoE, dealing Anemo DMG and lifting Kazuha into the air on a rushing gust of wind.

  • Press – Can be used in mid-air.
  • Hold – Charges up before unleashing greater Anemo DMG over a larger AoE than Press Mode.
  • Plunging Attack (Midare Ranzan) – Within 10s of remaining airborne after casting Chihayaburu, Kazuha can unleash a powerful Plunging Attack known as Midare Ranzan. When a Plunging Attack is performed using the effects of the Elemental Skill Chihayaburu, Plunging Attack DMG is converted to Anemo DMG. On landing, Kazuha creates a small wind tunnel via a secret blade technique that pulls in nearby objects and opponents. Midare Ranzan’s DMG is considered Plunging Attack DMG.

Kazuha Slash (Elemental Burst)

The signature technique of Kazuha’s self-styled bladework — a single slash that strikes with the force of the first winds of autumn, dealing AoE Anemo DMG. The blade’s passage will leave behind a field named “Autumn Whirlwind” that periodically deals AoE Anemo DMG to opponents within its range.

Elemental Absorbtion – If Autumn Whirlwind comes into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro, it will deal additional elemental DMG of that type. Elemental Absorption may only occur once per use.
