Best Arataki Itto team comp

Zhongli official artwork in Genshin ImpactmiHoYo
Zhongli is a great pick for any Genshin Impact team comp.

The best Arataki Itto team comp utilizes Zhongli, Albedo, and Bennett. Zhongli is a must for most meta teams in Genshin Impact, but especially in this comp. The double Geo resonance will increase Itto’s damage by 15%, and decrease enemy Geo resistance by 20% whenever he is protected by a shield. 

Adding even more Geo damage to this comp is Albedo. His Elemental Skill will consistently deal AoE damage whenever his allies take damage, while his Elemental Burst can wipe out huge amounts of grouped units, especially when Zhongli locks them in place with Dominus Lapidis.

Rounding out the comp is Bennett, Genshin Impact’s meta support. If Arataki Itto’s DPS wasn’t tantalizing enough, then further damage buffs from Bennett’s ult make this comp even more promising. 

When the health of a character within Bennett’s ultimate is higher than 70%, they gain an attack bonus that is based on his base attack. Should you find yourself taking damage, then Bennett’s Burst can also heal his allies. It’s certainly not hard to see why the boy wonder is a staple in most meta comps.
