When you play Genshin Impact everything depends not only on your main character but also on the composition. You should learn how elements complement each other and build the best team for your main.

Also, we have included alternative characters for each role that go well with Traveler (Anemo) too.

Sub DPS

Main DPS

Sub DPS

Support

Vaporize

Frozen

Swirl

Melt

Traveler

Klee

Tartaglia

Diona

Alternative Characters

Yanfei

Chongyun

Xingqiu

Traveler was meant to be a universal character, who works perfectly in any comp. It is a strong character at Sub DPS role. As an Anemo character Traveler has crowd control that not just group but also push back enemies. Besides you’ll see that Traveler’s swirl is strong and will grant consistent elemental damage. Klee synergies with the Travaler due to her bombs that can be taken into the battle thanks to Travaler’s Elemental Skill and Burst. So you should always start combos with Klee and spread those bombs with Traveler. Tartaglia (Childe) comes into the game after Travaler’s Burst to shoot enemies from a far with his bow, which can also trigger Vaporize reaction if you do it after Klee bombs. Diona is a useful support who can apply shields and heal the team when needed. If you need to activate Cryo Resonance, you can take Chonqyun instead of Childe.

Good characters for this comp: Fischl, Xiangling, Amber, Barbara.
