Spiral Abyss 4.1 features many new enemies and bosses from Fontaine. There are some changes in the rank of some top-picked characters. Let's check out the most used characters for Spiral Abyss 4.1 and learn why they are highly trusted.

Spiral Abyss 4 1
These are the top picked characters in Spiral Abyss 4.1.

I. Top 3 Remains Unchanged

Nahida, Kazuha, and Yelan are still the top-used characters in Spiral Abyss. They are still the most reliable DPS and sub-DPS characters for this combat challenge.

Nahida has an impressive pick rate of 83.1% which proves her usefulness of the Dendro Archon in Spiral Abyss. With overwhelming skill and burst, she can trigger lots of powerful reactions, especially Bloom and Hyperbloom reactions with powerful Dendro Cores.

Best Characters For Spiral Abyss
Nahida is still the best DPS in Spiral Abyss after many seasons since her release.

Kazuha's Swirl is always one of the most essential reactions in Spiral Abyss as it spreads the AoE of elemental attacks and reactions. Moreover, he has the best crowd-control skills, which is critical in this combat challenge. That's why his pick rate is up to 82.2%.

Kazuha Spiral Abyss
Kazuha's crowd-control ability makes him one of the best supporters in this combat challenge.

With a high pick rate of 70%, Yelan remains in the group of the top S+ tier characters for Spiral Abyss. Her AoE Hydro burst supports Nahida in triggering Bloom reactions on a wide area.

II. Neuvillette Surpasses Kokomi

Before the release of Fontaine and new bosses, Kokomi had been in the tier S plus. But she dropped out of this top list, especially after Neuvillette came out. The Chief Justice of Fontaine became one of the most helpful units for the new season thanks to his Fontaine features. He can replace many Hydro characters in many Spiral Abyss 4.1 teams, such as Hyperbloom, Bloom, Freeze, etc.

Neuvillette Spiral Abyss
Neuvillette became one of the most used Spiral Abyss characters very soon.

He also surpassed Raiden Shogun and Baizhu, who were among the top-used characters in previous seasons. But his pick rate hasn't surpassed Zhongli, Xingqiu, Alhaitham, and Bennett. These four characters have been reliable playable units for Spiral Abyss. Zhongli's shield is essential for vulnerable on-field DPS like Nahida, Alhaitham, Yelan, etc.

Are Fontaine characters increasingly preferred?

Lyney is another Fontaine character from the Land of Hydro. He cannot enter the tier-S group though he also has the Arkhe Energy, indicating that not every Fontaine character is preferred in Spiral Abyss 4.1 challenges.

But you can expect other upcoming Fontaine characters, such as Wriothesley and the Hydro Archon Furina. These characters are expected to have overwhelming power.

Genshin Impact Neuvillette
Neuvillette's AoE elemental burst makes him soon preferred in this combat season.

III. Zhongli, Alhaitham & Kokomi Remain Important

Zhongli, Alhaitham, and Kokomi are still in the top-S characters thanks to their abilities. Their kits are not out of meta.

  • Zhongli has an unbreakable shield which is essential for your team when countering powerful bosses in Spiral Abyss 4.1, such as machinery bosses. These new bosses have strong shields and great elemental resistance. Then, you DPS characters like Nahida, Alhaitham, Nilou, etc. have to stay on-field longer. They need a solid shield to stay safe from these bosses.
  • Alhaitham is a powerful on-field Dendro DPS for those who couldn't get Nahida. This character can trigger many meta reactions, such as Burgeon, Bloom, Hyperbloom, etc. to boost the output damage to enemies.
  • Kokomi's healing effect is less preferred, but it's still essential for many players who haven't got Neuvillette. She is still an ideal supporter and healer for many Dendro, Cryo, Electro, and Pyro teams. Apart from her healing ability, her Hydro application kit is still suitable in the current meta.
Zhongli And Alhaitham
Zhongli and Alhaitham are not surpassed because of their talents and skills.

IV. Top Used 4-Star Characters

There are four 4-star playable characters who have performed very well throughout many seasons. Therefore, they still remain in the group of tier-S characters thanks to their versatility and uses. In addition, most of the veterans in Genshin Impact have reached the optimal constellation levels as well as the best weapons and artifacts for these old characters.

  • Xingqiu (65%)
  • Bennett (61.9%)
  • Kuki Shinobu (51.7%)
  • Xiangling (41.6%).

These 4-star characters even surpassed many top-picked 5-star characters in previous seasons, such as Raiden Shogun and Hu Tao. Most of the single-target characters dropped their rank throughout recent reasons as Sprial Abyss features more enemy mobs. But these four fixed characters of National teams still stay on high positions.

Xiangling Xingqiu And Bennett
Shinobu, Xiangling, Xingqiu, and Bennett have been still the best 4-star units throughout many seasons.

They are the best characters to use in Spiral Abyss 4.1. The launch of Neuvillette brought an amazing option for lots of team. If you have got these characters, build a strong team to complete all chambers with 3 stars and earn tons of Primogems.
