Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Mona

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Mona

Mondstadt's resident Astrologist is available in Genshin Impact as a 5-star, catalyst-wielding character with Hydro affinity. Here's what we think is the best build for Mona in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Mona

Subtitled the Astral Reflection, Mona is now available in Genshin Impact.

A catalyst wielder, she is aligned with the Hydro element. She's ideal as a burst support who buffs her teammates, loaded with Energy Recharge for maximum uptime.

You can get Mona from the Wanderlust Invocation banner.

The best weapons for Mona in Genshin Impact

The Skyward Atlas is perhaps the best all-round catalyst for Mona, thanks to its increase in Elemental DMG and nice little attacking passive. 

Alternatively, budget players can equip The Widsith, which grants a random buff when taking the field of battle.

Skyward Atlas



Wandering Clouds

Increases Elemental DMG Bonus by 12/15/18/21/24%. Normal Attack hits have a 50% chance to earn the favor of the clouds. which actively seek out nearby opponents to attack for 15s, dealing 160/200/240/280/320% ATK DMG. Can only occur once every 30s.

The Widsith




When a character takes the field, they will gain a random theme song for 10s. This can only occur once every 30s.

Recitative: ATK is increased by 60/75/90/105/120%.

Aria: Increases all Elemental DMG by 48/60/72/84/96%.

Interlude: Elemental Mastery is increased by 240/300/360/420/480.

The best Artifacts for Mona in Genshin Impact

There are two obvious choices for Mona when it comes to artifacts. Firstly, the Emblem of Severed Fate set ramps up Energy Recharge, a key stat, and increases Elemental Burst DMG by a percentage of Energy Recharge. This makes it the strongest choice. 

Alternatively, you can opt for Noblesse Oblige, which has Energy Recharge as a primary stat and boost Elemental Burst DMG.


Emblem of Severed Fate

(2) Energy Recharge +20%

(4) Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.

Noblesse Oblige

(2) Elemental Burst DMG +20%

(4) Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.

Talent and Constellation priority for Mona in Genshin Impact

As a burst support, you absolutely want to max out Illusory Torrent (Elemental Burst) first. 

Then, focus on Mona's Elemental Skill, Mirror Reflection of Doom for the taunt and AoE DMG.

As for Constellations, both Prophecy of Submersion (C1) and Prophecy of Oblivion (C4) buff attacks when an enemy is affected by Omen, so are useful.

The best stat priority and substat priority for Mona in Genshin Impact

As mentioned previously, you want to focus on Energy Recharge for maximum Elemental Burst uptime. 

Stat Priority

  • Energy Recharge
  • Elemental Mastery
  • Hydro DMG Bonus
  • ATK%

Substat Priority

    CRIT Rate
