The Archon of Inazuma has come to Genshin Impact as a 5-star, polearm-wielding character with Electro affinity. Here's what we think is the best build for Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Raiden Shogun

Subtitled The Plane of Euthymia, Raiden Shogun is now available in Genshin Impact.

A polearm wielder, she is aligned with the Electro element. You'll want to play her as a Burst DPS.

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

The best weapons for Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact

There's one obvious choice of weapon for Raiden Shogun -- the Engulfing Lightning polearm. Given you're going to build her with tons of Energy Recharge, this weapon ramps up her damage in parallel.

If you haven't pulled this weapon yet, then "The Catch" is a good substitute.

Engulfing Lightning

★★★★★

Energy Recharge

Timeless Dream: Eternal Stove

ATK increased by 28/35/42/49/56% of Energy Recharge over the base 100%. You can gain a maximum bonus of 80/90/100/110/120% ATK. Gain 30/35/40/45/50% Energy Recharge for 12s after using an Elemental Burst.

"The Catch"

★★★★

Energy Recharge

Shanty

Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 16/20/24/28/32% and Elemental Burst CRIT Rate by 6/7.5/9/10.5/12%.

The best Artifacts for Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact

We think the best Artifact set for Raiden Shogun is the full Emblem of Severed Fate set.

It increases Energy Recharge by a significant amount, and then ramps up Elemental Burst DMG in parallel.

However, you can also run Noblesse Oblige, or a 2/2 split between Noblesse and Thundering Fury for loads of 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.

Thundering Fury

(2) Electro DMG Bonus +15%

Talent and Constellation priority for Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact

Given you're a Burst DMG build, it makes sense you focus on Raiden Shogun's Elemental Burst, Secret Art: Musou Shinsetsu, first.

Elemental Skill is next, as Transcendence: Baleful Omen deals Electro DMG and grants a buff to party members. Finally, build up her Normal Attack, Origin.

In terms of Constellation, her C2 -- Steelbreaker -- will help deal even more DMG, thanks to her Elemental Burst ignoring 60% of enemies' DEF.

The best stat priority and substat priority for Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact

This bulild is all about that DMG, so you want ATK and CRIT.

Stat Priority

  • ATK%
  • Electro DMG Bonus
  • CRIT Rate / CRIT DMG

Substat Priority

  • ATK%
  • CRIT DMG
  • CRIT Rate
  • Energy Recharge
