Genshin Impact Best Beidou Build

Beidou is a four-star Claymore user with Electro Vision. She has a unique playstyle where she can use her Elemental Skill to counterattack an enemy’s hit if you can grasp the proper timing. She is meant to be a main DPS, but you may also use her as a sub-DPS that triggers various elemental reactions.

  • Weapon: Wolf’s Gravestone
    • Alternative: The Unforged, Serpent Spine, Katsuragikiri Nagamasa, or Luxurious Sea-Lord
  • Artifact Set: Emblem of Severed Fate
    • Main Stats:
      • Sands – ATK%
      • Goblet – Electro Damage Bonus
      • Circlet – CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG
    • Secondary Stats: Energy Recharge, CRIT Rate, CRIT DMG, or ATK%
  • Constellation: C2
  • Talent Priority: Elemental Burst > Elemental Skill > Normal Attack

Genshin Impact Beidou Build

The best weapon for Beidou is Wolf’s Gravestone, which can increase her ATK. This sword can also boost damage against enemies with less than 30 percent HP by increasing all party members’ ATK by 40 percent for 12 seconds. For F2P players, you can use the craftable weapon Katsuragikiri Nagamasa or the limited-time event sword Luxurious Sea-Lord.

Like Xiangling, the best Artifact for Beidou is the Emblem of Severed Fate set. This equipment can increase her Energy Recharge by 20 percent and also boost her Elemental Burst DMG up to 75 percent.

If you plan to get her copies, you should aim to unlock Beidou’s C2, Upon the Turbulent Sea, the Thunder Arises. This Constellation allows Stormbreaker’s arc lightning to reach two additional targets, allowing her to deal more damage.

You should prioritize leveling up Beidou’s Elemental Burst if you want to use her as a sub-DPS or her Elemental Skill if she is your main DPS. Her Normal Attack should only be upgraded if you plan to make her your main damage dealer.

That’s the end of our guide on how to build Beidou. For more Genshin content, I recommend you read our post on the best build for Barbara. She is one of several free characters in the game, and she will likely become your first healer.
