Genshin Impact Genius Invokation TCG equipment card tier list

Equip your character cards with the very best gear.

The Genius Invokation TCG gameplay mode of Genshin Impact allows players a break from the constant hustle and bustle around Teyvat in favor of an epic card-battling game.

Genius Invokation TCG comes with many unique card types that players will need to learn such as equipment cards.

Equipment cards can be powerful when utilized correctly in Genius Invokation TCG, but are generally the least important card type of all. This is due to most equipment cards requiring players to immediately spend Elemental Dice to equip them but then having to wait until their next turn to actually see the benefits take place.

Utilizing equipment cards is also a fairly costly endeavor and mostly results in the game being drawn out longer than it needs to be since it is quite easy to obtain success without utilizing them. Thus, unless you find that equipping equipment cards truly suits your playstyle, it is almost always a better idea to spend those previous Elemental Dice on character skills, event cards, and support cards rather than on equipment cards.

Genius Invokation TCG equipment card tier list in Genshin Impact

Equipment cards can be broken down into three unique types:

  • Weapon equipment cards
  • Artifact equipment cards
  • Talent skill equipment cards

Weapon equipment card tier list in Genius Invokation TCG

The weapon cards that fall within the equipment category all focus on increasing the damage output of the character they are equipped to. This system functions similarly to how weapons regularly work in Teyvat in that the cards reflecting five-star weapons are the best, four-star weapons are solid, and three-star weapons are mediocre.
