The following data is derived from a recent Genshin Impact survey
as shown in this article. In that article, there is a table that transcribes all of the characters listed by appearance rate, owned rate, and usage rate. This article will primarily focus on the top five units as sorted by their usage rate. This part of the article will be objective, as it’s taken directly from the survey.
The more subjective part of the article will come in the form of why certain characters are useful. Of course, it is important to remember that it’s an analysis of data from a survey, so that doesn’t necessarily mean that these five units are the five objective best choices.
Five most preferred Genshin Impact characters for Spiral Abyss floor 12 #5 – Xingqiu (76.81%) Xingqiu is a powerful support option in Genshin Impact that excels as one of the premier options for both F2P and P2W players alike. Supplemental Hydro damage is nice, especially in conjunction with the numerous powerful Pyro options a player can have at their disposal (like Diluc).
What really helps Xingiu stand out as a top-tier support option is that he can reduce incoming damage and heal the team as a single party member. Combining this with his better damage potential makes him more useful than other Genshin Impact healers like Barbara, who simply lack the sheer versatility Xingqiu has.
As he is a support unit in Genshin Impact, Xingqiu can come in, do his stuff, and then swap out, leaving the heavy work to other party members.
#4 – Hu Tao (79.34%) Bennett is the more offensive support option when compared to Xingqiu. Unsurprisingly, this means that he is slightly more viable given that players want to beat the Spiral Abyss as fast as possible. Of course, Bennett also has some defensive utility that makes him worth it as a solo support option in Genshin Impact.
Role compression is a valuable thing to have in Genshin Impact. As Bennett’s attack boost is based on his attack stat, some players could build him offensively just to rush through Floor 12 as fast as possible.
Likewise, less-skilled players can do a mix of attack and HP, as the latter skill is instrumental in bolstering his healing capabilities.
#2 – Ganyu (87.24%) Spiral Abyss in Genshin Impact. Considering Ganyu can easily deal with these enemies (especially when combined with Hydro support), it’s no surprise that Genshin Impact players use her the second most often for Floor 12 in the Spiral Abyss.
A well-built Ganyu can be a bit overpowered for the Spiral Abyss, especially since Floor 12 doesn’t have many Cryo enemies to ruin her day.
#1 – Zhongli (97.25%) Zhongli excels in every part of the game, so it shouldn’t be surprising that his usage rate would be the highest in Floor 12 of the Spiral Abyss. Remember, the usage rate in the survey had to do with players who had Zhongli. A 97.25% usage rate doesn’t mean that Zhongli is used in nearly every Floor 12 attempt, just that he’s nearly used in every Floor 12 attempt by people who own him.
Zhongli simply excels in Floor 12 of the
Spiral Abyss since his large AOE Geo damage is so useful. Add in the fact that Zhongli has a powerful shield and can drain enemy defenses, then it should be readily apparent why so many players love him.
Zhongli can deal with every single enemy found on Floor 12 in Genshin Impact, mostly thanks to the fact that he uses the Geo element. Emphasis on the word “can”, as Zhongli can easily use his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst, and then swap to a more potent DPS option if the player has one.
