Weapon and artifacts, Chongyun's build
Chongyun is mainly played as a DPS in view of his damage, but his Cryo Divine Eye makes him an excellent support. His artifact set allows him to increase physical damage, which combines perfectly with his weapon.

(2) Bonus de dommages 18%
(4) Damage bonus (basic attack only) 35% if the wearer equips a sword, greatsword or polearm.
If the Death of the wolf is Chongyun's ideal weapon, it is possible to replace it with other viable options. We thus find thesword of reason, or more particularly theSwordfish (Prototype) which stands out.

How to play Chongyun?
Chongyun's goal in Genshin Impact with his DPS build is to unleash his rage with Mind Blade: Starfall. Its basic attacks are very powerful, however, and its Spirit Blade: Layered Frost combines with many other skills. He is therefore very good at freezing his enemies for long seconds, but also dealing them powerful and destructive blows.
With his very high base damage but also his skills, Chongyun is a very powerful DPS. His Divine Eye is a major asset in his team since it allows him to manage large waves of enemies just like an elite that is a little too cumbersome. It is particularly effective in closed places.
