The Narukami Ogosho will be released soon Genshin impact 4.3 banners and maybe you want to start making farming equipment for her. For those who don’t know, Raiden Shogun is a sub-DPS support character that can deal massive damage, strengthen your party members, and meet their energy needs. In this guide, let’s take a look at the best build, weapons, artifacts, and more for Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact.
Best Raiden Shogun Builds in Genshin Impact
The best build for Raiden Shogun is the Emblem of Severed Fate artifact set paired with her signature weapon, Engulfing Lightning. Both increase Raiden Shogun’s Energy Recharge, which is an essential stat in her kit. In addition to her signature weapon, it is essential to use the Emblem set, as a 2-piece set gives her 20% Energy Recharge and a 4-piece set increases her Burst Damage by 25% of the Energy Recharge.
Engulfing Lightning is the best weapon for Raiden Shogun for two reasons: it has an Energy Recharge sub-stat of 55.1% (max), which is important for Raiden Shogun, and the passive increases Attack by 28% of the Energy Recharge for the period base 100%. This way, Raiden Shogun can gain a maximum bonus attack of 80%. Additionally, Engulfing Lightning also grants the user 30% Energy Recharge for 12 seconds after using an Elemental Burst.
As for other options, there aren’t any. Emblem of Severed Fate is the best out there for Raiden, but if you’re missing the same, you can try the 2-Piece Emblem and 2-Piece Thundering Fury, but that’s about it. Here are all the options you can try:
- 4-piece Severed Fate Emblem (THE best artifact set for Raiden Shogun)
- 2-piece Severed Fate Emblem + 2-piece Thundering Fury (if you don’t have any good emblem artifacts)
- 2-piece Severed Fate emblem + 2-piece Nobless Oblige
- 2-piece Nobless Oblige + 2-piece Thundering Fury (now stop being lazy and look for Emblem)
Raiden Shogun Priority Main and substats
It’s important to have good Crit sub-stats for both the Flower and Feather, in addition to Attack rate and Energy Recharge, but when it comes to the main stats, it’s complicated. The stats you should have for the Sands and Goblet depend on the team or, more importantly, the weapon you are using.
If you use her signature weapon and the Energy Recharge is already above 230, then there is no doubt that you should have Attack Sands and Electro Damage bonus Goblet. However, if you’re using a free-to-play weapon like The Catch, you should have Attack Sands and Goblet.
If you are using Vortex Vanquisher or another ATK% weapon and have less than 200 Energy Recharge, it is important to have Energy Recharge Sands instead of Attack. Likewise, if you use Energy Recharge Sands on Raiden Shogun, make sure you have an Attack Percentage Goblet on her.
Therefore, Energy Recharge would be the right priority ≡ Attack% ≡ Electrodamage% > Critrate ≡ Critical damage.
|Flower||Flat HP: Charge Energy, Crit Rate, Crit Damage, ATK%|
|Resilience||Flat ATK: Charge Energy, Crit Rate, Crit Damage, ATK%|
|Sand||Charge energy ≡ ATK% (Depending on the weapon) > Critical review ≡ Critical damage|
|Cup||Electro Damage Bonus ≡ ATK% (depending on weapon) > Critical damage ≡ Critical rating > ER%|
|Circle||Crit damage ≡ Crit speed /ATK% > ER%|
For every 1% energy charge above 100%, Raiden Shogun’s Passive gives her a bonus of 0.6% more energy recovery and 0.4% electro damage. This may lead players to think that stacking as much ER on Raiden as possible is the best choice. However, piling ER% will yield diminishing returns at some point. Therefore, you should also focus on building up her attack to maximize her potential as a sub-DPS. 200-260 Energy charging is generally sufficient.
Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun Talents
Raiden Shogun’s gear revolves around dealing constant electro damage, increasing party members’ elemental burst damage. When the party members use their bursts, Raiden gains resolve stacks and the same increases her burst damage, helping to restore energy to all party members during the skill.
Normal Attack: Origin – Raiden Shogun performs five consecutive attacks that deal physical damage, charged attacks, and plunging attacks by consuming stamina that also deal physical damage.
Elemental Skill: Ominous Omen – Raiden Shogun cuts down on dealing Electro Damage and gains the ‘Eye of Stormy Judgment’. The Eye of Stormy Judgment performs coordinated electro attacks every 0.9 seconds (while the character is attacking), and for characters with the same attack, the elemental burst damage is increased based on the energy cost of the burst.
Elemental Burst: Secret Art: Musou Shinsetsu – Raiden Shogun unleashes a massive Electro slash with Musou No Hitotachi that deals big AoE damage, followed by the Electro-infused damage. The damage done by this is directly proportional to the number of Resolve Stacks consumed when used.
