Zhongli is the Geo Archon in Genshin Impact and is a highly recommended character as he is the best shield applicator in the game. His shield is so powerful that it allows us to do without a Healer on the team as long as you don't play VERY poorly.

But that's not the only thing Zhongli provides through his shield. In addition to being very durable, it also reduces the resistances of all elements (including physical) for enemies close to us, making it a passive way to increase the damage our characters deal while providing good protection.

In addition to this, he also has a quite powerful Ultimate, although in many cases, it's preferred to do without it because the animation is somewhat long, which can compromise our character rotation's damage a bit. So, in the end, you mainly want him for his shield, what a piece of a shield, I must say.

Special Stat: +28.8% Geo DMG

Zhongli Support DPS

We can gear him a little more towards dealing damage or a little more towards support, personally we think it's much more worth strengthening his support component as this will result in a better shield and bonuses for his teammates who will usually be the ones to deal the damage.
