Aim For CRIT Stat & Damage Multipliers

Every projectile, from Normal & Charged Attack to Elemental Skill & Burst, can deal powerful damage to the enemy. While CRIT stat is undoubtedly the best stat for every main DPS, it is also great to use a catalyst that can provide a lot of damage multipliers.

Quick Swap Playstyle Can Deal Powerful Damage

Since this playstyle is a quick swap, it is good to invest with catalysts that do not require Ningguang to be on the field for too long. For instance, the best & 2nd in the list are fit for a quick swap playstyle while the remaining can provide support to the other characters in the team.

Use A Complete Noblesse Oblige If You Want A Buffer

Whenever Ningguang uses her Burst, the effect of 4-piece Noblesse Oblige gives ATK% buff to everyone in the team. Only use a complete Noblesse Oblige if you do not have another character that uses it in the team since the buff does not stack.

Ningguang Guide - How To Use Ningguang?

Recommended Rotation For Ningguang

Recommended Rotation
1Use Elemental Skill, then pass through its veil
2Spam normal attacks until you get 3 Star Jades. Unleash Charged Attack for additional damage
3If Elemental Skill is still active, pass through it again then use Elemental Burst. Ideal to use Burst when you also have 3 Star Jades
4Return to no.1

Uses Of Ningguang's Elemental Skill

Creates A Protective Veil Against Projectiles

Besides the Geo buff, the veil can also protect characters from incoming projectiles. However, because the Skill can be destroyed, this is not a reliable way of escaping enemy attacks.

Amplifies Geo Damage

A character that passes through the veil of Ningguang's Elemental Skill receives Geo DMG bonus. This is a set-up ability and should be used before going on the offensive.

Additional Projectiles Upon Using Elemental Burst

Additional Projectiles Upon Using Elemental Burst

While the veil is active, it retracts and produces additional projectiles when Ningguang has used Elemental Burst.

Uses Of Ningguang's Elemental Burst

Explosive Geo Burst Damage

Explosive Geo Burst Damage

Ningguang's Elemental Burst is a purely offensive ability. Unleash it as much as you can with the right set-up to get the most out of it.

Constellation 6 Greatly Increases The Damage Created

C6 Ningguang

At Constellation 6, Ningguang's Elemental Burst will create 6 Star Jades that will greatly increase the damage of your next charged attack through its raw power.

Normal Attack & Charge Attack Is The Main Source Of Damage

When using Ningguang as a DPS, most of the damage will come from the combination of Normal Attacks and Charged Attacks.

Perform 3 Normal Attacks Then Use Charged Attack

Every Normal Attack that hit the enemies will create Star Jades. You can unleash these jades by using Charged Attack.

Should You Get Or Wish For Ningguang?

Pull If You Need A DPS

Ningguang
Ningguang is a Geo DPS that can deal constant damage with her normal & charge attacks. Ningguang's constellation significantly improves her abilites & damage output. If you main her, it is recommended to pull for her constallations.

Strengths & Weakness Of Ningguang

Strengths
- Powerful Charged Attack especially when there are max Star Jade.
- Can increase Geo DMG & block enemy projectiles with her Elemental Skill
- Low energy cost for Elemental Burst
- Does not rely on reactions to deal maximum damage.
Weakness
- Fairly slow movements as a Main DPS and has difficulty dodging.
- Requires a fairly high amount of investment in End-Game

Best Constellation For Ningguang

Constellation 1 Fix The Lack Of AOE

Ningguang, with no constellation, has a problem of being too single target. Constellation 1 makes the stone from the Normal attack of Ningguang to explode and hit multiple enemies at once making her a more effective main DPS.

How is she D tier?

Anonymous 9

Thank you for a very comprehensive guide! Lost Prayer is a really the best weapon for her (not The Memory of Dust).

P.S. But her being A tier character while also an S tier damager doesn't make sense, IMO. Same with many other characters here.

Anonymous 8

there are atk% in the the atk% clock's substats,
and ning don't need EM.

Anonymous 7

Amber? I think not

Anonymous 2

I thought so too, the gladiator 4 piece set is useless for ningguang as she use catalyst. Sojourner 4 pice set would be better.
