Best Heizou Builds

Anemo Sub DPS Build

Heizou fills a similar role to Sucrose, but can be built in two different ways: Attack / Anemo Damage / Crit and full Elemental Mastery. Which one is better depends on the team you run him on. We recommend the Elemental Mastery build so that he excels in popular teams like Tazer and National.
