Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Electro Traveler

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Electro Traveler

If you're looking to optimize your Electro Traveler build in Genshin Impact with the best weapons and artifacts, then this guide is for you!

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Electro Traveler

The main character in Genshin Impact is the Traveler, with the story focusing on their hunt for their twin sibling after being stranded in the world of Teyvat by a mysterious god-like character.

They can be of three different elements -- either Anemo (the starting affinity), Geo, or Electro. All builds use the Sword.

Players can switch between affinities at a relevant Statue of the Seven. Anemo Statues are found in Mondstadt, Geo Statues in Liyue, and Electro Statues in Inazuma.

This build focuses on the Electro Traveler, and is more ideally focused towards a support role.

The best weapons for Electro Traveler in Genshin Impact

There are two ways you can equip Electro Traveler. The first provides a regular boost to DMG and buffing afterwards with the Skyward Blade, or aiming for more Elemental Skill DMG with Festering Desire.

Either way, the build is more about generating Energy for yourself and your team.

Skyward Blade


Energy Recharge

Sky-Piercing Fang

Crit Rate increased by 4/5/6/7/8%. Gains Skypiercing Might upon using Elemental Burst: Increases Movement SPD by 10%, increases ATK SPD by 10%, and Normal and Charged hits deal additional DMG equal to 20/25/30/35/40% of ATK. Skypiercing Might lasts for 12s.

Festering Desire


Energy Recharge

Undying Admiration

Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 16/20/24/28/32% and Elemental Skill CRIT Rate by 6.0/7.5/9.0/10.5/12%.

The best Artifacts for Electro Traveler in Genshin Impact

The Emblem of Severed Fate set is great for ramping up Energy Recharge, and is the ideal set for the build we're aiming for. Elemental Burst DMG will also be improved through maximising Recharge.

Alternatively, you can opt for Noblesse Oblige for a boost to Elemental Burst DMG, or Thundering Fury for the Electro-focused DMG buff.

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%

(4) Increases damage caused by Overloaded, Electro-Charged and Superconduct by 40%. Triggering such effects decreases Elemental Skill CD by 1s. Can only occur once every 0.8s.

Talent and Constellation priority for Electro Traveler in Genshin Impact

Given the build works best around the generation of Abundance Amulets to restore Energy, you'll want to focus on improving the Lightning Blade Elemental Skill first.

Then, max out Traveler's Elemental Burst, Bellowing Thunder

In terms of Constellations, Spring Thunder Of Fertility (C1) and Fickle Cloudstrike (C4) are key in increasing Energy Recharge.
