Essential constellation

To start enjoying Zhongli to the fullest, you must have unlocked Constellation #1.

Rock, the Backbone of Earth

Increases the maximum number of Stone Steles created by Dominus Lapidis that may exist simultaneously by 2.

Zhongli's first constellation point is crucial because it allows him to further optimize his offensive capacity: Dominus Lapidis. With this, your enemies will take additional damage as you can summon 2 rocky ridges. In addition, they will be forced to fight in a smaller area, which will allow you to play with AOE.

Best Zhongli Synergy


Zhongli combines wonderfully with Fischl, the latter being from the Electro element, you will benefit from the Crystallization elemental reaction . In addition, this archer will increase the damage of your heroes, which will make your Zhongli even more powerful than originally.
