What character is good for Vortex Vanquisher?

Jul 5, 2022

Zhongli (Chinese: 钟离 Zhōnglí) is a playable Geo character in Genshin Impact. He is a consultant of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. He is later revealed to be the current vessel of the Geo Archon, Morax, who has decided to experience the world from the perspective of a mortal.

Vortex Vanquisher: This sharp polearm can seemingly pierce through anything. When swung, one can almost see the rift it tears in the air.

Weapon Type: Polearm
Rarity: 5 Stars
Series: Liyue Series
How to Obtain: Weapon Event Wishes


Zhongli is seen wielding this polearm in his official art, as well as in his official Character Demoand in Collected Miscellany - "Zhongli: Dominance of Earth" | Genshin Impact.

Zhongli formerly wielded this polearm as a trial character in the one-time domains Of Mysteries and Salt and Beneath the Ancient Tree, before it was switched with Staff of Homa, and switched back to Vortex Vanquisher in both instances.

What character is good for Vortex Vanquisher? 

Vortex Vanquisher is mainly made to be used with Zhongli, as he is the only character who can take advantage of the shield boost. While this can be placed on other polearm users as a substitute weapon, it won't perform as well.


This was an ancient time, when ships sailed alongside sea monsters.

In those days, Liyue Harbor was not at peace, not from those creatures from the deep.

They say that a great shadow once dwelt within the oceanic abyss. With great vortexes and whirlpools it would smash even the strongest of ships, and drag its prey down into the sunless depths. They also say that a divine island would emerge from the sea, rainbow-clad and fog-shrouded...

All who are fortunate enough to set foot on that island will find treasures buried for time incalculable.

Still others say that this island is a great monster in a threadbare torpor.

Most legends that pass between sailors and skippers are such bizarre ones as these. But there is one story that they all believe. They believe that Rex Lapis had once wielded a spear that pierced the rainbow, pinning the churning vortex that had once terrorized the oceans in the center of the deep sea.

Legends have it that since then, one can often see dolphins and whales congregate about that patch of ocean, singing.

Some hold that they mourn for the God that they revered, and sing many a winding dirge for it.

Others claim that they do so in awe of Rex Lapis' great power, that he could indeed pierce the rainbow's arc and bring them down the sun.

But folk legend also holds this.

That one day, the vortex, consigned to a dead stillness by the Lord of Geo's divine spear, will once again begin to wake.

When the wind once again brings the stench of the depths onshore, that will be the omen of a hurricane as large as a nine-headed hydra.

Who, then, will be able to subdue That Which Lies in the Deep?
