The First Great Magic and 4 Best Characters to Use it in Genshin Impact

Before discussing the best characters to wield The First Great Magic, it is essential to examine its stats and skills. Below are the latest stats and abilities of the upcoming 5-star weapon at level 90 R1:

  • Base ATK: 608
  • Second stat: 66.2% CRIT DMG
  • Skill: Charged Attack DMG increased by 16%. Every party member with the same element as the user will gain 1 Gimmick stack. Every party member with a different part from the user will gain a Theatrics stack. When the user has 1/2/3 or more Gimmick stacks, ATK will be increased by 16%/32%/48%. When a unit has 1/2/3 or more Theatrics stacks, movement speed will increase by 4%/7%/10%.

With the weapon details out of the way, below is a list of some of the best characters in Genshin Impact to use The First Great Magic.

1) Lyney

The first candidate has to be Lyney since The First Great Magic is his signature weapon. Several leaks have suggested that he is a main Pyro DPS unit, and most of his damage supposedly comes from his Charged Shots, so the new Bow is a perfect fit for him. The new 5-star item has a high Base ATK and an insane CRIT DMG bonus, making it a good weapon option for most DPS.

Furthermore, The First Great Magic's skill perfectly synergizes with Lyney's kit, making him the best character in Genshin Impact to wield this Bow.

2) Ganyu

Ganyu is one of the best DPS characters in Genshin Impact, and her primary source of damage is her charged shots. The First Great Magic is a perfect option for her since it can significantly increase her Charged Attack DMG and also buff her ATK. In addition, the high Base ATK and CRIT DMG will also considerably boost Ganyu's overall damage, which could potentially outperform even Amos' Bow and Hunter's Path in certain situations.

3) Tighnari

Tighnari is an amazing Dendro Bow DPS. While he relies mainly on his Charged Attacks to deal damage, his playstyle differs slightly from the previous entries. But that will not change the fact that The First Great Magic can be an excellent option for him. The new weapon provides so many buffs it can be considered one of the best options for Tighnari in Genshin Impact.

4) Childe

While the Charged Attack DMG bonus will be useless to Childe, The First Great Magic can still be an acceptable option for him. It provides a vast ATK% bonus, CRIT DMG, and increases the wielder's movement speed. It essentially has everything he needs as a damage dealer.
