Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Sangonomiya Kokomi

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Sangonomiya Kokomi

The Divine Priestess of Watatsumi Island has come to Genshin Impact as a 5-star, catalyst-wielding character with Hydro affinity. Here's what we think is the best build for Kokomi in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Sangonomiya Kokomi

Subtitled The Pearl of Wisdom, Sangonomiya Kokomi is now available in Genshin Impact.

A catalyst wielder, she is aligned with the Hydro element. While she can be a main DPS, we think she's much better suited as a strong support, thanks to her healing prowess.

You can only get Kokomi from Wishes, as a five-star character.

The best weapons for Kokomi in Genshin Impact

As you want her to heal, the best weapon for Kokimi is undoubtedly the Everlasting Moonglow. It increases her healing by 10%, as well as her Normal Attack DMG according to Max HP.

If you haven't pulled this weapon yet, then the Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers is a good substitute.

Healing Bonus increased by 10/12.5/15/17.5/20%, Normal Attack DMG is increased by 1/1.5/2/2.5/3% of the Max HP of the character equipping this weapon.

For 12s after using an Elemental Burst, Normal Attacks that hit opponents will restore 0.6 Energy. Energy can be restored this way once every 0.1s.

When switching characters, the new character taking the field has their ATK increased by 24/30/36/42/48% for 10s. This effect can only occur once every 20s.

The best Artifacts for Kokomi in Genshin Impact

We think the best Artifact set for Kokimi is the full Tenacity of the Millelith set.

This is because it's a powerful support set, granting a boost to HP and increasing the ATK of nearby party members. 

However, you can also run a 2/2 split with Maiden Beloved, for extra healing.

Tenacity of the Millelith

(2) HP +20%

(4) When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.

Maiden Beloved

(2) Character Healing Effectiveness +15%

Talent and Constellation priority for Kokomi in Genshin Impact

You absolutely want to focus on the Kurage's Oath Elemental Skill first, as it both deals Hydro DMG and heals allies. It scales off her Max HP - more health, more healing.

Then, focus on the Nereid's Ascension Elemental Burst, which deals Hydro DMG and then buffs Kokomi, allowing her Normal and Charged attacks to heal nearby party members and granting her resistance to interruption. She can also walk on water, too.

Finally, upgrade her Normal Attack, The Shape of Water.

In terms of Constellation, the fourth is the one you want to try and attain - The Moon Overlooks The Waters - as it helps with the uptime for her other abilities.

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

As most of Kokomi's abilities scale off her Max HP, that's a key stat to focus on. CRIT, however, is useless.

Stat Priority

  • HP
  • Hydro DMG Bonus
  • Healing Bonus or HP

Substat Priority

  • HP
  • ATK%
  • Energy Recharge
  • Elemental Mastery
