Raiden Shogun Best Builds & Artifact Sets

Genshin Impact: Raiden Shogun Best Builds, Weapons, & Teams

Raiden Shogun is one of the few characters in Genshin Impact that can fit into any role and be the leading character in your team. Her best artifact set can be shared between these three roles of Main DPS, Sub-DPS, and Support, with a focus on increasing Energy Recharge for her Elemental Skill and ATK for her Elemental Burst and Normal Attacks. Here is the best artifact set you can use to increase Raiden Shogun's damage.

4-Set Of Emblem Of Severed Fate

Genshin Impact: Raiden Shogun Best Builds, Weapons, & Teams

This set with 2 pieces will give Raiden Shogun a base increase of 20 percent to her Energy Recharge. For the 4-Set, it will increase Elemental Burst DMG by 25 percent of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75 percent of bonus DMG can be obtained. This set is great, especially for Raiden Shogun's Elemental Skill, which can increase characters' Elemental Burst DMG based on the Energy Cost of the Elemental Burst. This set will increase her Energy Recharge to make the effects of her Elemental Skill stronger. In order to get the most out of this set, here are the stats and substats you should use for each piece.

Type of Artifact Main Stats Substats
Sands of Eon ATK% or Energy Recharge Energy Recharge, ATK%, CRIT DMG, CRIT Rate
Goblet of Eonothem ATK%, Electro DMG Bonus, or Energy Recharge Energy Recharge, ATK%, CRIT DMG, CRIT Rate
Circlet of Logos CRIT DMG or CRIT Rate Energy Recharge, ATK%, CRIT DMG, CRIT Rate

Focusing on Energy Recharge will help with increasing the strength of Raiden Shogun's Elemental Skill and giving an Elemental Burst DMG boost to her teammates. ATK% will also help to increase the damage of her Normal, Charged, and Plunging ATK, which can be used in her Elemental Burst and will be converted to Elemental Burst DMG.

Raiden Shogun's Best 5-Star And 4-Star Weapons

Genshin Impact: Raiden Shogun Best Builds, Weapons, & Teams

Building up on Raiden Shogun's Energy Recharge, ATK, and CRIT Stats is what will improve her abilities the most. She has quite a few weapon options that will keep her Elemental Burst as strong as possible. Keep in mind that if you focused on one particular main stat in your artifacts build, then you should use the another stat for Raiden Shogun's weapon. Here are the best 5-Star and 4-Star weapons you can use for Raiden Shogun.

5-Star Weapons: Engulfing Lighting And Skyward Spine

Engulfing Lighting is Raiden Shogun's signature weapon that you will often see her with in fight cutscenes. This weapon will give her a base increase of 12 percent to her Energy Recharge. Its Bonus Skill will increase ATK by 28 percent of Energy Recharge over the base 100 percent. This weapon can gain a maximum bonus of 80 percent ATK. It will also gain a 30 percent increase to Energy Recharge for 12 seconds after using an Elemental Burst. This weapon helps to keep the focus on Raiden Shogun's Elemental Burst, which is her most important attack as it will recharge the Energy of her team.

Skyward Spine will give a base increase of 8 percent to Energy Recharge. Its Bonus Skill will increase CRIT Rate by 8 percent and will increase Normal ATK Speed by 12 percent. Normal and Charged Attack hits on enemies will have a 50 percent chance to trigger a vacuum blade that deals 40 percent of ATK as DMG in a small Area of Effect. This vacuum blade can occur only once every 2 seconds. Skyward Spine, like Engulfing Lighting, focuses mainly on Energy Recharge, but will also give Raiden Shogun a boost to her CRIT Rate so you can more often perform CRIT Hits.

4-Star Weapons: Wavebreaker's Fin And Blackcliff Pole

Wavebreaker's Fin will give a base increase of 3 percent to ATK. Its Bonus Skill will increase Raiden Shogun's Elemental Burst DMG by 0.12 percent for every point of the entire party's combined maximum Energy capacity. This effect can have a maximum of 40 percent increased Elemental Burst DMG. If you focused more on Energy Recharge for Raiden Shogun's artifacts, this weapon will be great for keeping her ATK high. It will also greatly increase her Elemental Burst DMG as she will already have a large Energy capacity.

Blackcliff Pole will give a base increase of 12 percent to CRIT DMG. Its Bonus Stat will increase ATK by 12 percent for 30 seconds after defeating an enemy. This can have a maximum of 3 stacks, and the duration of each stack is independent of the others. This weapon is a great well-rounded option that focuses on increasing Raiden's overall damage stats. You will be able to make stronger CRIT Hits with the boost to CRIT DMG.

Free-To-Play Weapon: The Catch

The Catch is a Free-To-Play option that is actually one of the best weapons for Raiden Shogun. It will give a base increase of 10 percent to her Energy Recharge. Its Bonus Skill will increase Elemental Burst DMG by 16 percent and Elemental Burst CRIT Rate by 6 percent. This weapon focuses heavily on increasing the damage output from Raiden Shogun's Elemental Burst, which is her strongest attack. You can obtain this weapon by fishing and catching Golden Koi, Rusty Koi, and Raimei Angelfish.
