Charged

Barbara

Keqing

Klee

Fischl

Alternative Characters

Diluc

Ganyu

Zhongli

Barbara is a popular Support in Genshin Impact due to her healing and elemental reactions. The best main DPS that fits Barbara is Keqing, who deals a lot of damage with Electro and normal attacks. Electro and Hydro elements trigger Overloaded reaction while Klee is Pyro and in combination with Hydro will trigger Vaporize. If you prefer Melt reactions more you can think of adding Ganyu with Diluc as sub and main DPS characters. But Keqing and Fischl are good together as they provide your team with Electro resonance.

Good characters for this comp: Xingqiu, Sucrose, Tartaglia, Kaeya, Xiangling.
