How to unlock

How to get Venti in Genshin Impact

Given that Venti is a five-star character, he's usually an extremely rare reward—specifically you needed to Wish for him on the limited-time Ballad in Goblets banner, of which the chances of snagging him were a measly 0.6 percent. He was last available during the game's 1.4 update in March 2020, so you may need to wait a while to add him to your team. 

Overview

Genshin Impact Venti overview

As a ranged DPS/Support, Venti is best keeping his distance as much as possible while dealing damage. And since he’s an Anemo unit, his skills complement that approach. Skyward Sonnet is a good way of delaying your enemies and also getting out of tricky situations by launching up in the air and gliding to safety. Wind’s Grand Ode is the perfect combination of crowd control and continuous damage, too. 

Normal attack: Divine Marksmanship
Normal Attack:Shoots up to six consecutive arrows.
Charged Attack:A precise Aimed Shot with increased damage. A fully-charged shot deals Anemo damage.
Plunging Attack:Fires off a shower of arrows from mid-air and strikes the ground dealing AoE damage.

Elemental skill: Skyward Sonnet
Press:Summons a Wind Domain at the enemy's location, dealing AoE Anemo damage and launching enemies up in the air.
Hold:Summons an even larger Wind Domain with Venti as the epicenter, dealing AoE Anemo damage and launching affected enemies into the air. After unleashing this ability, Venti rides the wind current.

Elemental Burst
Wind's Grand Ode:Summons a huge Stormeye that sucks in object and enemies along its path, dealing continuous Anemo damage.
Elemental Absorption:If the Stormeye comes into contact with any different element, it will also deal elemental damage of that type. Occurs once per use.

Passives
Embrace of Winds:Holding Skyward Sonnet creates a wind current that lasts for 20 seconds.
Stormeye:Regenerates 15 Energy for Venti after Wind's Grand Ode ends. If an Elemental Absorption occurred, this also restores 15 Energy to all characters of the other element.
Windrider:Decreases gliding stamina consumption of your characters in the party by 20%. Not stackable with talents with the same effect.

Constellations
Splitting Gale:Fires two additional arrows per aimed shot that deals 33% of the original arrow's damage. May hit and damage the same target in close range. Each arrow has its own critical rate.
Breeze of Reminiscence:Skyward Sonnet decreases enemy Anemo Resistance by 12% for 10 seconds. Enemies launched up in the air suffer an additional 12% Anemo and Physical Resistance debuff.
Ode to Thousand Winds:Increases the level of Wind's Grand Ode by three, up to a maximum of 15.
Hurricane of Freedom:When picking an Elemental Orb or Particle, Venti receives a 25% Anemo damage bonus for 10 seconds.
Concerto dal Cielo:Increases the level of Skyward Sonnet by three, up to a maximum of 15.
Storm of Defiance:Targets who take damage from Wind's Grand Ode have their Anemo Resistance decreased by 20%. If an Elemental Absorption occurs, then their resistance towards the corresponding Element is also decreased by 20%.
