Genshin Impact Venti Guide: Ascension, Talent Materials, Best Weapons, Artifacts

Genshin Impact Venti

Venti is a 5-star bow user and one of the best Anemo characters in Genshin Impact. In order to make the most of the character, you need to level him up along with his talents.

You also need the right weapon and artifacts for him. In this Genshin Impact guide, we are going to go over all the materials you need to level up Venti and recommend a build for him.

Genshin Impact Venti Ascension And Talent Materials

The following are all the materials that you need to level up Venti and his talents in Genshin Impact:

Ascension Materials

You will need the following materials to get Venti to level 90:

  • 1x Vayuda Turquoise Sliver
  • 9x Vayuda Turquoise Fragment
  • 9x Vayuda Turquoise Chunk
  • 6x Vayuda Turquoise Gemstone
  • 46x Hurricane Seed
  • 168x Cecilia
  • 18x Slime Condensate
  • 30x Slime Secretions
  • 36x Slime Concentrate

You can get Vayuda Turquoise Sliver and higher-tier variants of the resource from the Anemo Hypostasis, Maguu Kenki, and by beating Stormterror.

You can also buy the resource from Marjorie and Xingxi. Once you have the base resource, you can convert it into the higher-tier variants at the crafting table.

Anemo Hypostasis also drops Hurricane Seed, so this is the boss that you should prioritize. Cecilia can be found in the wild, Starsnatch Cliff is a great location to get some.

Slime Condensate is dropped from Slimes. Once you have the base resource you can convert it into the higher-tier versions at the crafting station.

Venti: Ascension Upgrade Path

Here is how each major Ascension will look based on the material requirements for Venti:

Level 20 -> Level 40

The first jump comprises 20 levels. However, it’s generally pretty easy to collect the following materials:



Vayuda Turquoise Sliver



Slime Condensate



Level 40 -> Level 50

The second ascension introduces Hurricane Seeds to the mix, which can be gathered from the Anemo Hypostasis as mentioned. Here are the materials you would need for this jump:


Vayuda Turquoise Fragment



Slime Condensate


Hurricane Seed



Level 50 -> Level 60

The third is generally considered as the transition jump from early to mid-game. You would be looking to upgrade your skills and talents to keep up with your leveling speed.

With that said, here are the materials needed to break into this stage:


Vayuda Turquoise Fragment



Slime Secretions


Hurricane Seed



Level 60 -> Level 70

This is another major ascension that symbolizes your transition to the later stages of the mid-game. Here’s what you’ll need to break this limiter:


Vayuda Turquoise Chunk



Slime Secretions


Hurricane Seed



Level 70 -> Level 80

You will be mostly looking to power level through this stage in order to reach the limit as soon as possible.

However, breaking through becomes a bit too expensive here unless you’re a veteran. The materials for breaking through are mentioned below:



Vayuda Turquoise Chunk



Slime Concentrate


Hurricane Seed



Level 80 -> Level 90

This is the final ascension in Venti’s path, once this stage has been reached, you will be focusing on maxing everything out, including all the talents and skills.

You’d need the following to get past this:



Vayuda Turquoise Gemstone



Slime Concentrate


Hurricane Seed




Talent Materials

The following are the materials that you need to upgrade all of Venti’s talents:

  • 9x Teachings of Ballad
  • 63x Guide to Ballad
  • 114x Philosophies of Ballad
  • 18x Slime Condensate
  • 66x Slime Secretions
  • 93x Slime Concentrate
  • 18x Tail of Boreas
  • 3x Crown of Insight

The Tail of Boreas can be earned by completing the Wolf of the North weekly challenge.

You can only get rewards from this challenge once a week. If you have other drops from this boss then you can convert them into Tail of Boreas at the crafting table by using Dream Solvent.

Crown of Insight can be earned as part of special events. You can also get it by leveling up the shrine tree in Inazuma.

Best Genshin Impact Venti Build

Leveling up Venti to the max and upgrading his talents is not going to be enough.

You also need to give him the right artifacts and weapons. The following is the build that we recommend for Venti in Genshin Impact.

Best Weapons 

If you are going for a Swirl Sub DPS build then we recommend using the Elegy for the End. This is a 5-star weapon, so you will need to spend your Primogems on the weapons banner in order to get it.

The weapon has energy recharge as the bonus stat so that you can get your elemental burst back faster. Its passive perk also works best with Venti.

Alternatively, you could use the Skyward Harp. This has crit rate as the bonus stat which is ideal for dealing consistent high damage.

It increases your crit damage by 20% and attacks have a 60% chance of dealing 125% physical attack damage in the form of an AoE attack. This can only happen once every 4 seconds. 

Aside from these, you can also opt for the more meta options:

  1. Favonius Warbow – This 4-star weapon is a popular choice for Venti, as it has Energy Recharge as its secondary stat, which helps Venti generate more Elemental Burst particles.
    Its passive ability, Windfall, has a chance to generate Elemental Orbs when scoring a critical hit, further increasing Venti’s Elemental Burst uptime.
  2. Sacrificial Bow – Another 4-star option, the Sacrificial Bow offers a good balance between damage and support.
    It has Energy Recharge as its secondary stat and its passive ability, Composed, has a chance to reset Venti’s Elemental Skill cooldown after dealing damage with it.
    This allows Venti to use his Elemental Skill more often for crowd control and energy generation.
  3. The Stringless – This 4-star bow is a viable option if you want to focus on Venti’s Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst damage.
    The secondary stat is Elemental Mastery, which increases the damage dealt by his Anemo abilities and the Swirl reaction.
    Its passive ability, Arrowless Song, increases Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG, making Venti’s abilities hit harder.
  4. Dull Bow (3-star, early game) – For very early game, you can use the Dull Bow if you haven’t acquired any of the 4-star bows mentioned above.
    Its passive ability, Bane of Flame and Water, increases DMG against enemies affected by Hydro or Pyro.
    However, it is recommended to replace this weapon with a better option as soon as possible.

Best Artifacts

If you are going for a Swirl Sub DPS build then we recommend using the Viridescent Venerer set. This increases Anemo damage by 15% and increases Swirl damage by 60%.

It also decreases the enemy’s elemental resistance to the element that is infused in the swirl by 40% for 10 seconds. Be sure to have crit rate or crit damage on the hat and Anemo damage bonus on the goblet. 

If you are going for a Burst Sub DPS build then we recommend using the Noblesse Oblige set.

This increases elemental burst damage by 20% and using your elemental burst increases the attack of your party members by 20% for 12 seconds.

Again, you need to have crit rate or crit damage on the hat and Anemo damage bonus on the goblet. 

Consequently, you can also choose Emblem as your main Artifact if you’re looking to increase your Energy recharge along with an Elemental Burst DMG boost.

The increase in the Energy Recharge amounts to 20% for 2-PC, whereas the boost in Elemental Burst DMG can range from 25% of the Energy Recharge to 75%. 

Best Team Comps For Venti

Since Venti is a crowd-control-heavy character, he will work in any team comp as long as they require CC.

However, you would ideally want to maximize his kit’s potential as much as possible. You can think of him as a de-buffer whose main job is to reduce the Elemental Resistance of his opponents. 

Having said that, Venti is generally picket into a Freeze-based team due to his CC and sub-elemental prowess. However, you can also make him work in an Electro-Charged comp given the synergies are optimized. 

Freeze Comp

Main DPS

Ayaka / Ganyu



Main Support

Diona / Shenhe

Sub Support



A combined team of Ayaka, Diona, and Mona tends to work the best when it comes to maximizing Venti’s potential while still being met. You can also switch things up by choosing Ganyu as the main DPS instead of Ayaka. 

Consequently, another variation of the Freeze Comp includes Shenhe being the main support instead of Diona.

Since the goal is to make the most sturdy team comp possible, you will be relying on Venti to Absorp and Swirl Cryo his way out of trouble.  

Make Ayaka grab the Haran Geppaki Futsu along with the Blizzard Strayer while having Diona on Elegy for the End. Mona can wield the Skyward Atlas in order to balance everything out.

If you’re planning to go the Ganyu route, then you should try the Aqua Simulacra instead. 

Electro-Charged Comp

Main DPS








The Electro-Charged team comprises Ayato taking the helm as the main damage dealer while Venti and Fischi become the pseudo-damage supports. Bennett is responsible for holding the team together with her insanely strong abilities. 

Since this comp also relies on the Hyrdo fist, it’s better if you play with Venti as the star of the show in mind.

Ayato generally goes well with the Haran Geppaki Futsu while Fischi can make do with the Aqua Simulacra due to their high damage ratios. 

While the role of Bennett here is to provide support, you can still make him equip damage-based items.

As apparent as it might be, the Electro-Charged comp is miles ahead of the Freeze comp when it comes to DPS, but falls short in the reliability department.

Venti’s Constellations

Increasing the effectiveness of your characters can be extremely important since the stronger they are, the higher the chance of clearing specific stages.

Since you generally want to get the highest ratings possible, it’s best if you focus on character constellations from early on. 

With that being said, Venti has a total of six Constellations with two apparent power spikes that can be unlocked as soon as you reach a specific stage in your character progression.

Let’s count all of these stages down to see how each upgrade affects Venti:

  • (C1) Splitting Gales: Each Aimed Shot fires two additional arrows that deal 67% reduced damage than the original one. 
  • (C2) Breeze of Reminiscence: The enemy’s Anemo RES is decreased by 12% with each successful hit of Skyward Sonnet. This effect lasts for 10 seconds. 
    Consequently, the enemies launched by Skyward Sonnet are get inflicted with an additional Anemo RES of 12%, thereby making the total count go up to 24% with an additional Physical RES decrease while airborne.  
  • (C3) Ode to Thousand Winds: Wind’s Grans Orde experiences a level increase of three with the maximum being capped at 15.
  • (C4) Hurricane of Freedom: Any Elemental Particle or Orb pickup grants Venti a 25 % increase in damage for the next 10 seconds. 
  • (C5) Concerto dal Cielo: Skyward Sonnet experiences a level increase of three with the maximum being capped at 15.
  • (C6) Storm of Defiance: The enemy’s Anemi RES is decreased by 12% with each successful hit of Wind’s Grand Ode. This effect amplifies if the Elemental Absorption is triggered. The target then experiences a 20% RES decrease on the corresponding element as well. 

Venti’s early power spike comes at the Breeze of Reminiscence, with the main one coming at the final Constellation a.k.a Storm of Defiance.

Since you’re going to use Venti for these two constellations, the rest aren’t really needed since there are better DPS-only characters in Genshin Impact. 

You can also choose to skip the mentioned Constellations if your party isn’t lacking Crowd Control. In such scenarios, it’s better to keep him at C0, while investing in your main DPS carry. 

How To Play Towards Venti’s Strengths?

Venti is a support-type bard. Therefore, he possesses a very distinct playstyle that caters more toward exploration than destruction.

Having said that, he isn’t one-dimensional, so you do have the option of flexing him into multiple playstyles given that you’re playing towards his skills instead of stats.

On that note, let’s take a look at how his abilities are intended to work, so you can grasp a general idea about his playstyle:

Passive Talent: Windrider

This talent allows Venti and his party to experience a reduced rate of stamina consumption while gliding.

This not only grant’s you 20% more gliding time, but also enables you to traverse mountainous areas like Liyue much faster and smoother.

Since there are several movement restrictions in Genshin Impact, you’d breeze through the early game with the help of Venti’s passive.

Once the waypoints have been unlocked, you can then use this talent for shorter, more obscure areas. 

Passive Talent: Stormeye

This talent increases Venti’s rate of energy regeneration by 15.

However, it doesn’t end at this instead, the party members that possess the corresponding element of the character affected by Venti’s Elemental Burst also receive the same effect. 

While this is generally better in prolonged fights. Being able to unload your combos due to a high-energy regen can go long way in the mid to late game in Genshin Impact.

Skyward Sonnet

Skyward Sonnet is much more than an elemental skill. It can be used to create artificial currents that can aid you during explorations.

There aren’t many high-altitude abilities in Genshin Impact, so it is really hard to spot treasures and items from a distance due to the unevenness of the terrain. 

The Skyward Sonnet launches your character straight up into the air, thereby making your camera move to a higher altitude along with Venti – which in turn helps you look much farther than usual.

In battles, this skill can be used to create distance between the enemy and yourself.

Elemental Burst:  Wind’s Grand Ode

Venti’s Elemental Burst is a unique ability that creates a vortex sucking surrounding enemies within.

This vortex then absorbs the following elements while dealing massive damage and discombobulating the enemies in return:

  • Cryo
  • Electro
  • Hydro
  • Pyro

Since each enemy surrenders their element to the vortex, the damage numbers start to ramp up as each target is dealt with the full brunt of that elemental force.

However, in DPS-heavy comps – this ability is generally used to trap the enemies while the rest of the team lands their ultimate. 

Skill Priority for Venti

As you progress in the game and level up Venti’s talents, it’s essential to focus on the right skills to maximize his potential. The following is the skill priority for Venti:

  1. Elemental Burst: Wind’s Grand Ode – Prioritize leveling up Venti’s Elemental Burst first, as it is his most powerful and versatile ability.
    It deals massive Anemo damage and can absorb other elements, making it highly effective in various team compositions and situations.
  2. Elemental Skill: Skyward Sonnet – Venti’s Elemental Skill is crucial for crowd control and exploration.
    Leveling up this skill will increase its damage and reduce its cooldown, allowing Venti to provide better support to your team.
  3. Normal Attack: Divine Marksmanship – Venti’s normal attack should be the lowest priority, as he mainly serves as a support character.
    However, leveling up this talent will still improve his overall damage output, especially when using charged shots with an Aimed Shot build.

Exploration Benefits with Venti

Venti’s unique abilities and playstyle offer a range of benefits for exploration in Genshin Impact.

With his Elemental Skill and passive talents, Venti can greatly enhance your experience while exploring the vast world of Teyvat.

Here are some exploration benefits you can enjoy with Venti in your party:

  1. Increased vertical mobility – Venti’s Elemental Skill, Skyward Sonnet, allows him to create an upward wind current that can lift him and other characters to higher locations.
    This is particularly useful for reaching high places, like cliffs or platforms, without the need for excessive climbing.
  2. Gathering collectibles – Venti’s Elemental Burst, Wind’s Grand Ode, can be used to gather collectibles like Anemoculus, Geoculus, and Electroculus.
    By casting his Elemental Burst near these collectibles, you can easily obtain them without having to precisely position your character.
  3. Mobility during combat – Venti’s passive talent, Embrace of Winds, extends the duration of his upward wind current created by Skyward Sonnet.
    This allows you and your party members to maintain aerial superiority during combat, making it easier to evade enemy attacks and target weak points.
  4. Gliding Stamina reduction – Venti’s first passive talent, Windrider, reduces gliding Stamina consumption for your entire party by 20%.
    This makes gliding more efficient, allowing you to cover greater distances without needing to rest or find a high point to recharge Stamina.

Tips and Tricks for Venti

Mastering Venti’s abilities and understanding his role in a team can significantly improve your overall gameplay experience in Genshin Impact.

Here are some tips and tricks to help you get the most out of Venti:

  1. Elemental Burst positioning – Venti’s Elemental Burst, Wind’s Grand Ode, has a wide range but can sometimes miss enemies if not positioned correctly.
    Aim to cast it in the middle of a group of enemies to maximize its crowd control and damage potential.
  2. Elemental skill for crowd control – Venti’s Elemental Skill, Skyward Sonnet, can be used to interrupt enemy attacks and control their positioning.
    Use the hold version of the skill to pull smaller enemies towards you and create an opening for your main damage dealer.
  3. Elemental Burst energy regeneration – Venti’s passive talent, Stormeye, regenerates energy for his Elemental Burst after using Skyward Sonnet.
    Make sure to use his Elemental Skill frequently to maintain a high energy level and ensure his Elemental Burst is always ready for use.
  4. Synergy with other elements – Venti’s abilities are particularly effective when paired with characters that can apply elemental reactions.
    For example, combining his Anemo abilities with Pyro, Hydro, or Electro characters can lead to powerful Swirl reactions that deal increased damage to enemies.
  5. Utilize the environment – Venti’s abilities can be used to interact with environmental objects, like torches or explosive barrels, to create advantageous situations.
    Use his Anemo skills to ignite or explode these objects, creating elemental reactions that can deal additional damage to nearby enemies.
