Inuzaka All-Round Defense
Deals AoE Geo DMG and sets up a General's War-Banner.
General's War Banner
Provides the following buffs based on the number of party members who are of the Geo Element:
• Having 1 Geo party member grants "Standing Firm": DEF Bonus.
• Having 2 Geo party members adds the "Impregnable" effect: grants resistance to interruption.
• Having 3 part members adds the "Shatter" effect: grants a Geo DMG Bonus.
Only 1 General's War-Banner that Gorou created himself can exist on the field at any one time. Characters can only benefit from 1 General's War-Banner at a time.
"Take up this formation and we'll be safe — I guarantee it!" As a general and a leader of troops, the last thing Gorou wants is to see is those who follow him getting hurt.

Juuga: Forward Unto Victory
Displaying his valor as a general, Gorou deals AoE Geo DMG and creates a field known as General's Glory to embolden his comrades.
General's Glory
This field has the following properties:
• It has the same effects as the General's War Banner created by Inuzaka All-Round Defense, providing buffs based on the number of party members whose Element is Geo. It will also move together with your active character.
• Generates 1 Crystal Collapse every 1.5s that deals AoE Geo DMG to 1 opponent within its AoE.
• It will pull elemental shards created by the Crystallize Reaction within its AoE to your active character's position every 1.5s.
If a General's War-Banner created by Gorou himself currently exists on the field when this ability is used, it will be destroyed. Additionally, using Inuzaka All-Round Defense while General's Glory is active will not create a General's War-Banner.
If Gorou falls in battle, the General's Glory effects that he activated himself will be canceled.
"We have the high ground!" Gorou can ever-so-slightly change the terrain of the battlefield to help win victory. This technique has seen him through many battles against seemingly superior opposition.

    Is it strange that I am more excited to see how Gorou turns out on release over Itto? Kinda like that whole thing of how we already know that Itto will hurt things and his similarities with Noelle kinda already tells us that he will be a alright character already. So far Gorou is just being viewed as nothing more than a pure support which don’t get me wrong he kinda is but his buffs count for himself soooooooo kinda makes me wonder with his lower scaling how his buffs might lean him more dps worthy if geared right. Might just be a little hopeful on him having more potential than whats being seen on paper but I look forward to maining this geo doggo :3
    Good luck to all you for any future pulls you may do!!! <3

    My reasons for getting him:
    -I have Kokomi, can’t let her not have her greatest general
    -Local specialties minimap passive! I’ve been waiting for a character with that passive for Inazuma!
    -Come on, he’s a puppy that summons a puppy. Does anything more really need to be said??
    (I also have a perfect Geo cup with crit rate crit damage and defense percentage substats, it’ll be nice to have someone to use it on, rather than have it languish in my inventory)

    A lot of people complaining that he’s too niche as if that’s a bad thing lmao. like childe is locked on only being usable with either beidou or xiangling does that make him bad? gorou is a 4 star meaning he literally is free you don’t have to spend actual money to try and get him and just like kokomi you can literally just skip him / ignore building him if u don’t want to use itto too. like did y’all build xinyan, amber, and Lisa?? just because you get to pull him doesn’t mean you need to use him??.

    swear to God the people complaining about gorou here are the same ones trashing kazuha cause y’all can’t read how a support character works and their purpose lmao. save your complaints for trash kits like kokomis to actual limited 5 star characters, not irrelevant 4 stars.

    Would like to hear your thoughts on my planned Gorou support build. 🙂

    Weap: Favonius Warbow
    Arti Set: 4pc Noblesse
    Main Stats: Def% Sands – Def% Goblet – Def% Circlet (or Crit Rate if low on other artifacts to proc Fav)

    I know the upcoming Def set may be good on him, but I’m sure my Albedo and Itto would be fighting over those pieces like rabid dogs. lol plus the 12 second buff from Noblesse will synchronize perfectly with C2 Gorou.

      Judging by his current kit, and assuming he has particle generation like Sara without electro resonance, that is a pretty decent idea. Although, it depends on your main damage dealer and your fellow party members.
      If Gorou is the only buffer in the party, and your main damage dealer uses dmg bonus goblet, or not using atk% sand, then 4pc Noblesse; otherwise use 4pc Petra – his pull could be useful.

    to all of you mihoyo shills defending gorou, wtf are you thinking??
    this is mihoyo doing limit testing. They are testing the limit on how useless a 4 star can be before players start a riot.

    A character whose entire use is 15% geo dmg bonus?? AND YOU NEED 3 GEO CHARACTERS IN THE TEAM JUST TO DO THAT??????
    Ningguang does that WITH ONE OF HER PASSIVE. And it’s just so happen that she can also do 10k dmg 12 times with only 40 energy burst with 12s cooldown. While also doing 20k dmg 2 times every 12s.

    how the hell can ANYONE be fine with gorou??? WTF is wrong with y’all mihoyo shills?? There’s a limit on shilling out for multi billion dollar corporate you know??

    sure he provides some def too, a whooping 300 points at that. It’s like, what, a whooping 15% def of a fully built def characters?? How great… tell me more about it.

    I can’t even belief that some people are dumb enough to justify this shit… my mind is blown on how stupid people can be, defending a character whose entire use is 15% geo dmg and 300 def. WTF humans??

      and 25% def, and a little bit of damage. and a little healing, and an okay/good amount of crit damage, counting constellations, which should be at least considered since this is a 4 star.
      definitely super niche with the defense and geo restrictions, relatively underpowered numbers overall, but not just “15% geo dmg and 300 def” like it seems you keep insisting. “a character whose entire use is 15% geo dmg and 300 def” isn’t what the “mihoyo shills” are “defending”, there are more words and numbers to be read on this page, don’t be toxic like that. just say ‘this isn’t that good actually, people should at least be expecting 25% geo dmg’ and move on.
      seriously though, how hard is it to read “25% def”, it’s right there. “15% geo dmg, 300 flat def and 25% def”, see? it isn’t even a 250 boost with itto, sure, but it’s still relatively significant. makes the boost easily 500 def in total, not the best, not the worst, not *300* come on. and noelle snapshots her defense on burst, so the 9/20 shouldn’t be much of a problem in her case, don’t know about itto though.

      Chill the fuck out. He also gives +25% DEF when you cast his burst. He’s a way better Geo buddy than Ningguang for DEF based charas like Itto, Noelle, and Albedo.

      his entire purpose tho is to be a dmg buffer for defense scaling characters aka geo. he gives geo dmg and a good amount of defense thanks to his passive which u glossed over. yes it’s pathetic how useless he is outside of geo comps and specifically itto, albedo, and Noelle centric comps but he works great for his purpose so I don’t see the problem? it’s not like he’s a 5 star or someone u are required to build…

      Gorou is for mono geo team comps and he’s a support for Itto, Albedo and Noelle…

      Don’t know if this is bait or not but…
      Gorou is far from useless If you use him right, Gorou is design for Mono Geo, Niche? Yes. but Geo in general is Niche except for Zhongli.

      Let’s me give you a few example of what he offer to the table.
      At base with his E, He offer 300 Flat Def, Interrupt Resist, 15% Geo Dmg with almost 100% Uptime and 25% Def with his Burst. (Basically a Dmg Buff for Itto, Albedo & C6 Noelle)
      At C1 He have 100% up time on his E
      At C2 He can now extend his burst duration with crystalize reaction.
      At C4 He can also heal and extend his Burst up time with crystalize reaction.
      At C6 He will give 40% Crit Dmg for all party members with a 100% Uptime.
      All of his kit is scale with Def unlike Albedo or Xinyan (His E with 3nd Passive will scale with Def)
      And because of that he probably gonna do some decent damage with his burst if he is decently invested

      He is a niche support but that doesn’t mean he is useless, In fact he is looking great for Mono Geo team just don’t put him in team that doesn’t work with him

      Ah, the typical player that only values the meta or top tier characters and forgets everyone else. Gorou is a godsend support for Noelle, Albedo and likely Itto. You are basically ignoring all other buffs he does to those characters, like the DEF increase and Crit DMG bonus for Geo. Just because he doesn’t buff Ningguangg properly, doesn’t mean he is useless or trash. Try to look outside the box for once.

    Something I gotta ask:

    Is it worth to sacrifice a second resonance (usually pyro) for a 15% Geo DMG bonus plus 20% Crit DMG?

    Also:

    Is Gorou + another Geo able to replace and be as good as Bennett + Xiangling in a Ningguang + Zhongli comp?

      depending on the team you use, one of the advantages of gorou is that it can increase def which is very useful for only a few characters. for your second question, no.

      No, it isn’t.
      +15% Geo Damage for Ninguang almost nothing.

      If Ninguang use Solar Pearl and she has 1600 ATK
      +24%Geo DMG from passive + 15%Geo DMG from Archaic +46,6%Geo DMG from Goblet = 1600+85,6% = 2970

      If use 4 Geo inckuding Gorou
      +15% Geo DMG from Gorou = = 1600+100,6% =3210

      If use Benett and Xianling
      +800 ATK from Benett Burst and +25% (180) ATK from Pyro Resonance= 2580+85,6% = 4788
      And also you have a Pyronado.

      if ningguang is the main dps trust me you don’t need gorou at all. he only works for itto and noelle and sacrificing pyro res for gorou is only viable once again if itto or noelle is the main dps not ningguang.

    About Rorou’s Skill
    +1 Geo Character: DEF buff.
    It’s only good for Noelle and Itto

    But…

    Solo Noelle C6: 12K DPS

    With Ninguang and her Skill 16,3K DPS
    With Geo Traveller and her/him Burst 16,3K DPS
    With Zhongli’s Shield 16,8K DPS

    With Gorou’s Skill: 17K DPS (C3, T12)
    Well its greater, but this is only a small difference.

    +2 Geo Character: Interuption Buff.
    Yes! This is wery werey important for Geo Characters!
    NO! Unnecessary! They have Shield! They make Shield!

    +3 Geo Character: Geo DMG buff.
    Good for all Geo Characters…
    But 15% in every Talent Level.

    C6 Noelle With Gorou, Ninguang, and Geo Traveller: 20,5K DPS
    If Ninguan or Traveller replace with Zhongli: 21K DPS
    If Gorou C6: 24K DPS

    Comparison:
    C6 Noelle with Ninguang, and Xingqiu ~26K DPS
    C6 Noelle with Ninguang, Xingqiu and Beidou ~35K DPS
    C6 Noelle with Ninguang, Xingqiu and Electro Traveller ~34K DPS (And Energy Cherarge)
    C6 Noelle with Ninguang, Xingqiu and C1 Benett ~35K DPS

    Conclusion. For Noelle, any Geo Character and any two support with different element is
    better than the 4 Geo Gorou Party.

    All DPS value based on a “best” 4 star weapons and “okey” (not perfect) Artifacts

    Gorou’s Skill with this walues isn’t good. I hope, they will change it.

        Just for you:
        My C6 Noelle with R4 Whiteblind (max Stack)
        ATK 1483
        DEF 2677
        CritRate 58,3%
        CritDMG 77,2%
        Geo DMG Bonus 46,6%
        Normal and Charged Attack DMG Bonus from Retracing Bolide 40%
        Total DMG bonus 86,6% (if use Normal Attacks)
        Burst Talent Level 12 = Convert 130% of the DEF to ATK 2677*1,3 = 3480
        ATK with Burst 1483+3480 = 4963
        With DMG bonus 4963*1,866 = 9261
        Same level enemy damage reduction (50%) 9261*0,5=4630
        Enemy resist (usually 10%) 4630*0,9 = 4167

        Normal Attack
        1st hit 156% = 4167*1,56 = 6500
        2nd hit 145%= 4167*1,45 = 6042
        3rd hit 171%= 4167*1,71 = 7125
        4th hit 224%= 4167*2,24 = 9334
        SUM = 29001
        (Claymore users perform the 4 hit combo in 3,6 second)

        Base DPS: 29001/3,6=8055
        Crit DPS: 8055*1,772 = 14273
        Average DPS: 8055*(1+0,772*0,583)= 11680

        Geo Resonance
        +25% DMG
        11680/1,866 = 8259
        8259*(1,866+0,25) = 17476
        (seems like something wrong with the calculator)
        https://genshinimpactcalculator.com/genshinCalc.html

        Decrease enemy Geo RES with 20%

        DPS without enemy RES 17476 = 17476/0,9 = 19417
        10% RES – 20% = -5%
        (Under 0% the Resist Reduction efficiency is 50%)
        DPS With Geo RES reduction. 19417*1,05 = 20388

        With Zhongli’s Shield 20% Elemental RES reduction 19417*1,15 = 22329

        or

        With Gorou’s Skill (lvl12) 412 DEF bonus (=535 ATK)
        (20388/4963)*(4963+535) = 22586

        With Goro and Zhongli
        (22329/4963)*(4963+535) = 24736

        With Goro, Zhongly and Ninguang (15%+12% Geo DMG Bonus)
        (24736/2,116) *(2,116+0,15+0,12) = 27892

        Whith Zhongli Xingqiu (~10KDPS) and Xianling (~9KDPS
        Sorry if i don’t write down Xingqiu’sand Xianling’s Damage calcualtions and use simple numbers)
        22329+10000+9000 = 41329

        41329 > 27892 (48% difference)

        Conclusion:
        Something wrong with the online damage calcualtor.
        But 2 Geo+2 different elemental support party is still better than 4 Geo Gorou’s party

    basically the geo + DEF buffer equivalent to bennett. he’s a must have for people who loves running geo comps and I think it’s super neat. I love how they’re changing how the game works. you can play your reactions, they deal a lot of dmg whatever but geo is starting to be on that level too (and I do think geo playstyle is more fun, but that’s just my opinion). gorou best boy

      “equivalent to bennett”

      of course, since +1k atk is equivalent to +300 def and 15% geo dmg.

        At lvl 12 he gives 412 DEF plus his burst gives 25% Def .
        If you have 2000 Def then you have 912 more Def and 15%geo DMG bonus so for Itto and Noelle gorou is like Bennet and you can use Bennet in another team

        Imagine getting so worked up over pixels on a screen. He’s clearly exclusive for Geo comps but you want him to buff as much as Bennett does?? Do you even know how DEF scaling works? OP was right in saying he’s the Geo counterpart of Bennett. For Itto/Noelle comp, Gorou is almost better to use than Bennett because ATK does jack shit for their entire kit (Noelle however needs to be C6 but that’s not the point). You just can’t read or have very poor comprehension. Gonna bet my two cents that you’re also one of the people that said Kazuha would suck and is just another Sucrose lmaooo

        This is how you know people don’t read.

        300def is low balling it hard.

        His E alone can give 400 DEF and that’s before the 25% DEF bonus he gives all teammates.

        15% geo damage and at C6 he can give 40% crit DMG to geo attacks.

        All that while having an ult that draws crystallize to you (which are actually usable in a team with high DEF) and giving additional heals at C4.

        As a geo support he’s fine, just say you don’t have/want itto and albedo and move on

    If I’m gonna use him in a mono geo team at C6, should I build him with decent crit stats or dump those? I don’t know how impactful his off-field damage will be. Would he do more damage with mega defense anyways or with a geo cup and crit hat? I’m considering using the Slingshot if his off-field damage is decent enough.

    (The other party members would prolly be Albedo and Aether supporting C6 Noelle.)

      I would rather build him to be good healer since all his buffing capabilities are not tied to any stat or talent level. Building healing on him would make Gorou a reliable healer + buffer and that’s exactly what Bennett does. The buffs and healing might not be as good as Bennett but focusing him to be a pure support will make him more valuable in a team

      going by the passive and con i guess crit rate would be good on him? since it would still impact his damage and the passive does say it increases the damage of his skill and burst based on his def, so crit would still work i think

      Honestly it’s hard to give advice when we don’t have the character himself yet. Things are usually different in practice vs. on paper. But in the end it all comes down to how you want to play him. Honestly, it sounds like you have an idea for him already so I’d aim for that for now, try it out and change it if you don’t like it when you get him. As for me, I want a bit of damage on my supports so I can bring them to co op and not depend too heavily on teammates dealing damage. I’ll be going Def%, Geo%, and Crit Rate.
