Genshin Impact Dendro Traveler build guide: Best weapons, artifacts & team compositions
The Traveler in Genshin Impact is the most unique character because of their ability to resonate with all elements. This guide will reveal the best artifacts, weapons, and teams to properly build the Dendro Traveler in Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact lets you spend Primogems and Wishes to get your favorite characters and weapons through banners. Moreover, some characters like Xiangling, Kaeya, Lisa, and Barbara can be obtained for free.
A character that often gets overlooked in this massive roster is the Traveler. At the outset of your journey in Teyvat, you choose to play as either Aether or Lumine. However, players quickly swap the main character from their party when they unlock new four-star and five-star units.
It is safe to say that the Dendro version of the Traveler is a capable support character, and this build guide will help you witness their true potential.

Dendro Traveler’s abilities in Genshin Impact explained
With a flourish of your blade, you unleash a spray of razor-sharp leaves that go before you and deal Dendro DMG.
This is a straightforward skill where your character will perform a dash and apply Dendro DMG to all the enemies in range.
Calling upon the might of the flora all around you, you create a Lea Lotus Lamp. This Lamp will deal continuous Dendro DMG to opponents within its AoE.
This skill allows you to place a Dendro lamp in the field with a fixed radius. It deals Dendro DMG to opponents in this range and applies Dendro five times. You can increase it by unlocking the second constellation for the Traveler which increases the skill duration by 3 seconds.
When on the field, the Dendro lamp reacts differently to elements:
- Hydro – The lamp’s AoE and damage increase.
- Electro – The lamp’s ATK speed increases.
- Pyro – The lamp explodes in a few seconds and deals AoE Dendro DMG.
These reactions can happen only once which is why you must be careful during rotations.
How to play as the Dendro Traveler in Genshin Impact
Dendro reactions have turned out to be quite powerful in Genshin Impact, and the Dendro Traveler is great for applying the element to groups of enemies. Characters like Xingqiu, Fischl, and Ayaka are popular for the same reason.
Unlike many other Dendro characters released so far, the Dendro Traveler can fulfill their role perfectly even when off-field. The Elemental Burst is excellent for off-field Dendro application and you can quickly switch to your main DPS and trigger reactions.
Best artifacts for the Dendro Traveler in Genshin Impact
Four-piece Deepwood Memories
The four-piece Deepwood Memories set in Genshin Impact is perfect for Dendro characters and the Traveler is no exception. It increases the Dendro DMG bonus and reduces an opponent’s Dendro RES after a Skill or Burst hits them.

Four-piece Noblesse Oblige
The four-piece Noblesse Oblige grants increased Element Burst DMG in Genshin Impact. After you use an Elemental Burst, the ATK of party members also increases briefly.
The Noblesse Oblige is tailor-made for support characters. Dendro application will still be consistent and anyone who feels that the Traveler deals less damage should use this set.
While these two sets are specifically great for the Dendro Traveler, some artifact sets in Genshin Impact are universally brilliant for certain roles. To check out such artifacts, you can check out our list of the best artifacts in the game.
As for artifact stats, you should focus on getting Energy Recharge that’ll allow you to spam your Elemental Burst on cooldown. Overall, you’ll need over 200 Energy Recharge that can be obtained from Artifacts as well as weapons.
For the best damage output, target a Dendro DMG Bonus Goblet and a Crit Rate/ Crit DMG circlet.
Best weapons for Dendro Traveler in Genshin Impact
The Favonius Sword in Genshin Impact grants a ton of Energy Recharge through the sub-stat and Energy Regeneration through the passive. As aforementioned, Energy Recharge is desirable for the Dendro Traveler and it is fairly easy to obtain the Favonius Sword than other five-star swords.
The five-star Freedom Sworn in Genshin Impact grants Elemental Mastery and buffs your team’s Normal, Charged, and Plunging attack DMG. Because you’ll be relying a lot on Dendro with the Traveler, Elemental Mastery is a great stat.
The Sapwood Blade is a free-to-play option for Genshin Impact players who do not have a Favonius Sword. It has a high base ATK and the 30.6% Energy Recharge will help you use your Elemental Burst more frequently.
Best team compositions for Dendro Traveler in Genshin Impact
To be fair, the Dendro Traveler in Genshin Impact is a universal Dendro support unit. This means that you can place them in almost any Dendro team composition. The best ones include:
- Dendro Traveler, Fischl, Beidou, and Sucrose
- Dendro Traveler, Kuki Shinobu, Beidou, and Sucrose
- Dendro Traveler, Fischl, Yae Miko, and Jean
- Dendro Traveler, Fischl, Xingqiu, and Sucrose
- Dendro Traveler, Ayato/Childe, Raiden Shogun, and Xingqiu
Basically, you’ll require a damage dealer that belongs to some other element like Hydro and Electro. The best options are Childe, Ayato, Yae Miko, and Raiden Shogun.
Dendro Traveler will be your Dendro support unit and you’ll need another support character from the element of your main damage dealer.
The last spot is ideal for characters that can buff elemental damage like Sucrose and Kazuha. The goal here is to:
- Use your Dendro Traveler’s Burst
- Switch to Electro/Hydro support characters and use their skills and Burst.
- Swap main DPS and deal elemental damage.
