Genshin Impact: Kuki Shinobu build, weapons and artifact sets

If you're looking to power-up your Kuki Shinobu here is our complete guide from artifacts to main stats and weapons.

Genshin Impact: Kuki Shinobu build, weapons and artifact sets

The deputy leader of Clan Arataki is now available to all players who have successfully summoned her. This new heroine of Genshin Impact has a unique role at present and she will please fans of the Electro element.

Kuki Shinobu, a one-of-a-kind character

Kuki Shinobu is a 4-star rarity character with an Electro Divine Eye. Her particularity is that she is the only healer of this attribute to be present in the game. Her gameplay will be based on her elementary skill or her outburst although her skill is the number 1 asset she has. Indeed, thanks to it, she can create a ring that remains even if she leaves the field and whose purpose is to inflict Electro damage and heal.

This ring surrounds your active hero and you will understand that it will create reactions and heal your other characters. It is also his max HP that will interest us most of the time since it is thanks to them that you will be able to max out damage and healing. Of course, elemental mastery and energy recharge will be very useful to trigger the burst more often, for example, and increase the damage of the reactions it triggers. Mastery will also allow you to obtain bonuses on the ring, but these will not necessarily be very interesting, but we will not spit on it.

The other particularity that Shinobu has are the effects related to its amount of remaining HP . For example, if she has less than 50% of her HP, she gets a healing bonus of 15% via her passive, but that's not all since if her elemental unleash is used with this same condition, it will last longer. . Of course, that would require Shinobu to lose some HP, but you won't have to look far for that, as his elemental skill sacrifices his hitpoints knowing he can't drop below 20%.

To conclude on Kuki Shinobu, you can play her as a Sub-DPS if you want, but her main role will still be to be sent into the field to cast her skill and then let your main DPS do the work.
