Jean is one of the most popular characters in Genshin Dampak Impact, and frankly, it’s easy to see why. Besides her obvious appearance as Anemone Sword users, it boasts powerful healing abilities, and stands firm as one of the best five-star characters to have in your party. If you need a strong and capable healer, Jean is your girl, and in this guide we’ll break down the exact build you need to make the most of it.
As a support, Jean usually won’t do a lot of damage to your party, but she’s still a formidable character who can give your team a big advantage. Jack of all trades, be it Elemental cleansing, healing, crowd control, or enemy debuffs, Jean can do it all.
Updated March 7, 2022, by Kyle Gorges: Jean is one of the characters on the Genshin Impact release list, and to say that the game has changed since then is an understatement. Nevertheless, Jean remains a very useful and relevant character in today’s gaming landscape. This guide has been updated to combine Jean’s abilities with more advanced weapons, artifacts and strategies.
Best Weapon For Jean
|Weapon Name||Basic ATK||Secondary Status||Passive Ability|
|Favonius Sword||41||Energy Refill||Jean’s Critical Strike will generate Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 energies for the character who collects them. This can happen once every 12 seconds.|
|Kageuchi’s Amenoma||41||ATK||After Jean casts her Elemental Skill, she will get 1 Succession Seed. The effect can occur once every 5 seconds, and the Seed will last for 30 seconds. Up to 3 Seeds of Succession may exist simultaneously. When Jean uses her Elemental Burst, all Seeds are consumed and Jean will generate 6 energy for each Seed consumed.|
|Sky Sword||46||Energy Refill||Jean’s Critique Rate increased by 4%. After using his Elemental Burst, Jean gains Skypiercing Might for 12s. This effect gives Jean a 10% increase in Movement SPD, 10% increase in ATK SPD, and Normal and Collected Attacks deal additional DMG equal to 20% of Jean’s ATK.|
|Aquila Favonia||48||Physical DMG Bonus||Jean’s ATK increased by 20%. Upon receiving DMG, Falcon of the West’s soul awakens, regenerating HP equal to Jean’s 100% ATK and dealing 200% of his ATK as DMG to nearby enemies. This effect can occur once every 15 seconds.|
Favonius Sword and Kageuchi’s Amenoma will most likely be your best four star choice for Jean’s weapon. Both are easy to reach – Favonius’s sword is a fairly common drop from Wishes and Kageuchi’s Amenoma Can Be Forged – and both offer the same effect. Although their ways were slightly different, the two swords gave Jean a respectable level of ATK while giving her a way to increase her Energy generation. This is important for healers like Jean who always want his Burst available if your team’s health bar drops.
Five stars Sky Sword also has Energy Recharge having a secondary stat to help defend Jean’s Burst, but with the added oomph that higher rarity weapons offer. That weapon A high Base ATK not only increases his damage, but also the amount he heals. Another Skyward Blade effect gives you the option of leaving Jean on the field after her Burst to deliver her own punishment.
Aquila Favonia is another five star option which is actually Jean’s signature sword. Many players prefer to emphasize Jean’s supportive playstyle with the other weapons above, but if you want your Jean to be more active and aggressive, this is the sword for you. The bonus Physical DMG it grants suddenly makes Jean’s Normal Attack harder, and the weapon’s incredible Base ATK means that her healing results remain solid as well. When combining Jean’s innate healing ability with Aquila Favonia’s passive, Jean is nearly immortal in battle.
The Best Artifacts For Jean
|Artifact Name||Two Piece Set Bonus||Four Piece Set Bonus|
|Viridescent Devotee||Bonus DMG Anemo +15%||Swirl Jean’s DMG increased by 60%. He will also reduce the opponent’s Elemental RES to Elements put in Swirl by 40% for 10s.|
|Noble Duty||Elemental Burst DMG +20%||When Jean uses her Elemental Burst, the ATK of all party members increases by 20% for 12s.|
|Sea Colored Shells||Healing Bonus +15%||When Jean heals anyone in the party (including herself), Sea Dye Foam will appear for 3s and start accumulating the amount of HP recovered (plus excess healing). At the end of the duration, Sea Dye Foam will explode, dealing DMG based on 90% of accumulated healing. Only one Marine Coloring Foam can be produced every 3.5 seconds.|
Looking at such a collection of supportive Artifacts, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Jean wanted both supportive and defensive Artifact stats as well; However, this is not actually the case. Remember that Jean’s healing reduces her ATK, and her kit’s innate healing ability is so high that she’s capable of leaning on offensive stats while remaining a reliable healer for your team.
Therefore, you usually want to search Sand ATK%, Anemo DMG Bonus Trophy, and Critique Level Circle. ER Sands can be replaced if you struggle to get enough Energy for your Burst, and Crit DMG Circlet can be used if you have a high enough Crit Rate from another source.
The Artifact Substat that Jean wanted was also offensive: Crit Rate/DMG, ATK% and ER are ideal. Elemental Mastery never bad either, because you’ll often trigger Swirl reactions with Jean. When paired with a special Bennett for their “Sunfire” combination of Burst, you can even take advantage of prime EM to maximize this strategy’s damage potential.
Four-piece Viridescent Veneer is almost always Jean’s best choice, as the ability to destroy enemy Elemental RES is very strong. Therefore, if your team doesn’t use Elemental Reaction at all (e.g. Jean, Xiao, Zhongli, Albedo), the Viridescent Venerer’s effect is basically useless and you’d be better off using Noble Duty on Jean to increase your carry damage. Sea Colored Shells is a funky set of Artifacts you can use to maximize Jean’s solo damage output, but generally she lags behind the other options here.
If you take Aquila Favonia for Jean and is it right want to turn it into a DMG physical powerhouse, consider running two pieces of Pale Flame with two pieces of Bloodstained Knights. This build of course shifts the focus away from healing Jean, Skill, and Burst, but can be a lot of fun if you want to try to damage your friends with so-called healers. Plus, even with this unusual build, Jean’s basic healing should be enough to make you tough enough.
Jean’s Talents and Constellations
Level up characters’ Talent in Genshin Impact consumes a lot of resources, especially at higher levels. Unless you’ve been stockpiling materials for a while, you should probably prioritize which abilities to level up first. For Jean, he Skill and Burst are both valid for leveling upwhile leaving his Normal Attack on the back burner is usually fine. The skill has better scaling and is the main damage source, but The burst is great on its own and that’s where most of Jean’s healing comes from. Prioritize your needs based on how you use Jean, and increase her Talent as needed.
As a five-star character, reaching Jean’s astrological sign not easy. He’s on the Standard Wish Banner, so his Constellation is easier to reach than most. Jean is mostly considered to have the best Constellations of the default five-star charactersand there are a few to turn to if you want to devote yourself to the revered Dandelion Knight. The C1 is amazingto be a direct improvement in his ultimate ability. C2 has a special application for buffing ATK SPD teammates like Yoimiya, when C4 Jean has the rare ability to directly buff Anemo DPS characters like Xiao. Keep in mind that Jean’s Constellation is hardly necessary to play it effectively, but you definitely won’t be disappointed if you manage to get some during your Wishes.
