What is National Team in Genshin Impact?

genshin impact why you should use the national team

National Team in Genshin Impact is the team that consists of these characters: Bennett, Xingqiu, Xiangling, and Chongyun. With the flexibility of you being able to replace Chongyun with some other characters. The reason it is called the National team is because of the Chinese community that popularised this team composition. Thanks to user u/ParryThisYouFilthyCa on the Genshin Impact subreddit for sharing the possible meaning of this team. You can check out the entire discussion thread here.

The second thing you should know about this team is that these characters are easy to obtain thanks to them being 4-Star characters.

  • Xiangling (Pyro): Complete Floor 3 Chamber 3 of the Spiral Abyss to get Xiangling for free. You can also get her from Wishes.
  • Xingqiu (Hydro): You can get him from Wishes.
  • Bennett (Pyro): You can get him from Wishes.
  • Chongyun (Cryo): You can get him from Wishes.

Why you should Use the National Team?

The reason you might consider using the National team is because of the insane damage output. With the elements Hydro and Pyro you can easily Vaporise your enemies. As for the elements Pyro and Cryo, they allow you to melt them. The biggest issue with this team is the lack of a bow user, thus not having a long range coverage.

  • Xiangling: Polearm user
  • Xingqiu: Sword user
  • Bennett: Sword user
  • Chongyun: Claymore user

Thus in order to solve it, you could replace Chongyun with Ganyu. Here are some of the characters that you could replace Chongyun with for a modified National team. Note not all of these solve the range issue mentioned above.

  • Ganyu
  • Raiden Shogun
  • Sucrose
  • Jean
  • Yelan
  • Zhongli
  • Venti
