Genshin Impact 4.2 Update Unveils Chart Ranking the Most Popular Phase 2 Spiral Abyss Characters


In the world of Genshin Impact, the Spiral Abyss within the 4.2 update remains a significant challenge for players, often deemed the most demanding end-game content. This special domain features progressively difficult floors—12 in total—with each floor presenting considerably tougher adversaries than those found throughout the Teyvat continent.

The lineup within the Spiral Abyss undergoes bi-monthly alterations, necessitating players to adjust their team compositions to exploit enemy weaknesses effectively. Among these floors, Floor 12 consistently emerges as the most arduous to conquer.

A Reddit user, qri_pretty, shared an insightful chart that ranks Genshin Impact characters based on their utilization rate in the second phase of the Spiral Abyss. Notably, the chart’s top spot belongs to the prominent Hydro Archon, Furina, boasting an astounding usage rate exceeding 89%. Introduced in Genshin Impact’s 4.2 update alongside the Cryo four-star character Charlotte, Furina made her initial in-game appearance in version 4.0, assuming the role of the Hydro Archon overseeing the Hydro nation. Renowned for her crucial role in Fontaine, Furina quickly became an essential Hydro support due to her adaptable abilities that complement virtually any team composition in the game.


Following closely is another Hydro user, Neuvillette, introduced in the prior update. Regarded as the most formidable DPS character recently added to the roster, Neuvillette’s prowess is such that numerous players have successfully navigated all Spiral Abyss floors relying solely on his abilities. His kit revolves around a distinctive Charged Attack, enabling this catalyst user to unleash a potent Hydro beam causing extensive AoE damage.

Securing the third position is Kaedehara Kazuha, a character consistently ranked high in Spiral Abyss usage charts. Renowned for his supportive capabilities as an Anemo character, Kazuha seamlessly fits into various party compositions. His skill set includes crowd-control effects on multiple foes, resistance reduction, and overall damage enhancement for teammates.

Surprising many fans in the comments, the catalyst user Baizhu claimed the fourth spot despite not being deemed as powerful as the preceding three characters. Known as the premier Dendro healer in Genshin Impact, Baizhu’s high pick rate might be attributed to his association with Furina on the previous Limited Character Banner, despite his comparative power levels.
