Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Diona

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Diona

The Cat's Tail bartender has come to Genshin Impact as a 4-star, bow-wielding character with Cryo affinity. Here's what we think is the best build for Diona in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Diona

Subtitled the Kätzlein Cocktail, Diona is now available in Genshin Impact.

A bow wielder, she is aligned with the Cryo element. She's a fantastic support character, which is how we've chosen to build her for this guide.

You can get Diona from the Wanderlust Invocation banner.

The best weapons for Diona in Genshin Impact

There are two great bows available for Diona, both with Energy Recharge as the primary stat.

Sacrificial Bow has a great chance of resetting her Elemental Skill cooldown when used, while the Favonius Warbow is fantastic if you're struggling with Energy management. 

The great thing about both these weapons is that they are four-star, and should be easier to obtain.

Sacrificial Bow


Energy Recharge


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 30/28/24/20/16s.

Favonius Warbow


Energy Recharge


CRIT hits have a 60/70/80/90/100% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12/10.5/9/7.5/6.0s.

The best Artifacts for Diona in Genshin Impact

There are two paths you can go down with Diona's artifacts, generally depending on whether you want to focus on the healing side or buffing party members. 

Maiden Beloved is fantastic for ramping up the healing side of things, while Noblesse Oblige offeres a great buff to ATK while increasing Elemental Burst DMG.

Maiden Beloved

(2) Character Healing Effectiveness +15%

(4) Using an Elemental Skill or Burst increases healing received by all party members by 20% for 10s.

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 Diona in Genshin Impact

Again, your choices depend on whether you're focusing on the healing side or the buffing side of Diona's kit. The Elemental Skill Icy Paws shields party members, while the Elemental Burst, Signature Mix, lays down a healing mist. 

When it comes to Constellations, A Lingeriing Flavour (C1) grants an Energy boost after Signature Mix ends, Shaken, Not Purred (C2) increases the shield strength of Icy Paws, and Cat's Tail Closing Time (C6) ramps up the healing of Signature Mix.

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

Given Diona's abilities scale off HP, that's what you'll want to focus on. Energy Recharge is also highly useful.

Stat Priority

  • HP
  • Energy Recharge
  • Healing Bonus

Substat Priority

  • Energy Recharge
  • HP
