Subtitled the Dark Side of Dawn, Diluc is now available in Genshin Impact.
A claymore wielder, he is aligned with the Pyro element. He's a character best suited to unleashing massive amounts of Pyro DPS, so we've gone with a build that reflects that.
You can get Diluc from the Wanderlust Invocation banner.
The best weapons for Diluc in Genshin Impact
The ideal claymore for Diluc is the Wolf's Gravestone, a weapon that increases ATK and provides a further buff to ATK when enemies are low health.
Alternatively, if you're a budget player you could run the four-star Sacrificial Greatsword. Its passive has a decent chance to reset the cooldown of your Elemental Skill on use, so you can deal even more Pyro DMG.
Or, if you want a bit of fun, take the Luxurious Sea-Lord. This claymore procs a giant tuna to do even more damage once your Elemental Burst hits - which it will, because it's a giant, flaming bird with a rather wide hitbox.
Increases ATK by 20/25/30/35/40%. On hit, attacks against opponents with less than 30% HP increase all party members' ATK by 40/50/60/70/80% for 12s. Can only occur once every 30s.
After dealing damage to an opponent with an Elemental Skill, the skill has a 40/50/60/70/80% chance to end its own CD. Can only occur once every 30/26/24/20/16s.
Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 12/15/18/21/24%. When Elemental Burst hits opponents, there is a 100% chance of summoning a huge onrush of tuna that charges and deals 100/125/150/175/200% ATK as AoE DMG. This effect can occur once every 15s.
The best Artifacts for Diluc in Genshin Impact
By far the set with the most synergy for a Pyro DMG build is the Crimson Witch of Flames. We honestly don't feel you need any other set, thanks to its fantastic four-set buff which ramps the Pyro DMG up even more.
(2) Pyro DMG Bonus +15%
(4) Increases Overloaded and Burning DMG by 40%. Increases Vaporize and Melt DMG by 15%. Using an Elemental Skill increases the 2-Piece Set Bonus by 50% of its starting value for 10s. Max 3 stacks.
Talent and Constellation priority for Diluc in Genshin Impact
We'd recommend maxing out Searing Onslaught first, as the Elemental Skill is going to be your primary source of Pyro DMG. It has a short cooldown, and will be online often.
Afterwards, go for which you feel you need most in the moment. The Tempered Sword Normal Attack is a good option, as you'll be spamming AAs when Onslaught is on coolldown. However, if you find yourself surrounded by mobs often, maxing out Dawn will allow the Elemental Burst to be more effective in getting you out of a bind.
Follow a similar path with the Constellations, too. Flowing Flame (C4) ramps up DMG when used in succession, for even more fiery pain. However, Conviction (C1) and Searing Ember (C2) are also both amazing for increasing overall DPS output.
