In Genshin Impact, a character’s main abilities often get their time in the spotlight, with flashy visual effects and high damage numbers. However, a character’s passive talents are often overlooked and many players are unaware of their existence. Today, we’d like to give Forgotten Skills some love, with our list of the best passive skills in Genshin Impact.
Top 10 passive talents in Genshin Impact
10- Night walk (Rosaria)
Rosaria’s passive increases the movement speed of your party members by 10%, but only from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM. This is a unique but oddly specific ability that has less utility than other talents of the same type. It’s an interesting idea, but in practice it’s not too beneficial for your team composition.
9- Snap and Swing (Thoma)
Thoma’s passive talent grants a 20% chance that any fish you catch in Inazuma will grant double materials. This is a massive help for players who fish frequently in Inazuma, but since there are several other regions and players will rarely be fishing in an exclusive area, this passive ability is quite situational.
8- The more the merrier, the more the merrier (Hu Tao and Ayato)
Hu Tao’s passive skill states that when she cooks a dish perfectly, she has an 18% chance of receiving an additional “suspicious” version of that dish. While this ability is humorous, it is less useful than other cooking passives that grant a dish of equal quality. Ayato also shares this ability under a different name, but none of these passive abilities shine brighter than their peers.
7- Treasure of wonderful treasures (Ningguang)
Ningguang’s passive talent displays the location of all nearby ore veins. This is useful for players who enjoy forging items, and it’s not limited to a single region. While Ningguang’s passive ability isn’t quite a lifesaver, it’s generally useful for locating materials.
6- Flamboyant match (Yoimiya)
Yoimiya’s passive skill grants a 100% chance to refund some of the materials used in crafting certain furniture. This passive is extremely useful for players who frequently customize their Serenitea Pot and reduces the need to search for materials.
5- Seeker of Shinies (Gorou)
Gorou’s passive talent reveals the location of nearby Inazuman resources on the minimap, which is a lifesaver when searching for dozens of Onikabuto to grind for Itto and Heizou. Since Inazuma is full of nooks, crannies, and subterranean parts, this talent is especially useful for finding the necessary materials.
4- Master of Armaments (Tartaglia)
Tartaglia’s passive skill increases the normal attack level of each of your party members by one while in the party. This ability is a nice boost for under-leveled characters, putting your team on a similar playing field. This passive is especially useful for physical DMG teams, rather than elemental reaction teams.
3- Yoohoo Art: The Secret of the Silencer (Sayu)
Sayu’s passive skill prevents your party members from spooking small animals, like foxes and Crystalflies. This is effective when using the Omni-Ubiquity Net to capture creatures for your Serenitea Pot, as you can sneak past them with less difficulty.
2- Woodchuck Chucked (Itto)
Itto’s passive skill grants party members a 25% chance to get an extra Wood Log when attacking a tree. This ability is crucial when harvesting wood for furniture, as it greatly reduces the amount of labor required. Although it has little use outside of Serenitea’s pot, it is a great help when collecting materials for furnishings.
1- Guide breeze (Jean, Barbara, Diona)
When you cook a dish with restorative effects perfectly, John’s Passive Skill gives you a 12% chance of getting double the product. For the majority of Genshin players, healing dishes are the most frequently cooked dishes. Jean’s passive grants a small chance to provide an additional healing meal, placing an extra emergency snack in your arsenal and promoting Jean to the top of the list.
