You Can Use ER Sands If She's The Only Electro In The Team

If you want to specifically use Beidou as your only electro character, you can change your ATK% Sands to ER to compensate for her energy issues. Do note that you'll lose damage output if you do.

Electro Main DPS

This build focuses on making Beidou an on-field dps carry. With this build, you can opt to have lower ER since Beidou will be on the field to collect particles with her skill. She can also fit into various team comps with this build.

Affiliation: Liyue
Beidou is the leader of the Crux - an armed fleet based in Liyue Harbor. An armed fleet means exactly what it sounds like: a fleet of ships armed to the teeth.
Without getting into too many details, everything the Crux does is approved by the Qixing... more or less.
Beidou is a trusted leader, so much so that her crew believe her capable of taming the storms and billows on the sea.
"It's Beidou! Even the mightiest of storms must bow its head to her might!"

Beidou Story Overview

A Known Strong Woman

Beidou is known as one of the powerful, unbound and forthright woman in Liyue. Known as a liquor lover, she spends her spare time drinking. She is a trusted leader to her crews where they put their full trust and loyalty to her. She is also a good friend of Ningguang, Yoimiya and Kazuha.

Owned The Crux Fleet

Beidou is the captain and the owner of the famous Crux Fleet that is based in Liyue region. She and her Crux Fleet became a trusted trade partner with the other nations, especially in Inazuma.

Beidou Is Affiliated With Kazuha

She played a big role at Kazuha's life by saving him during his escape from Inazuma. Beidou welcomed him to join his fleet and be a part of her Crux Fleet family.

Voicelines About Beidou

Voicelines About Beidou
KazuhaKazuhaI owe Beidou my life. She took me in when I fled from Inazuma and gave me the courage to return there at the most difficult time of my life. She is a comrade in whom I and all the other sailors can place our trust
YoimiyaYoimiyaBeidou's been helping me ship my fireworks out ever since Inazuma was locked down. I prepared a huge boat-shaped firework just to surprise her—and when the Crux Fleet was about leave, this firework went whoosh! Right in front of their eyes, straight into the sky. The sailors got such a huge fright — they thought one of their ships had somehow flown off! but Beidou liked that trick very much, saying that it was exactly what a pleasant surprise should be — very pleasant, and a surprise.
XinyanXinyanHer? She speaks her mind and has a big heart, and we get on great. The Crux's adventures are real epic. They've given me tons of inspiration in the past! I even wrote them a song. Nowadays, I just need to sing the first line, and most all the sailors will join in. It's fast becoming a new sea shanty, it is.
XiaoXiaoBeidou? I have nothing to do with her. Though there is such a thing as the leviathan. As a mere human, she has proven her power in defeating Haishan.
NingguangNingguangAbout Fines: That... captain. She clearly receives the adoration of many, but will always be the first to disregard the rules. The fines she has paid would be enough to buy her a whole new ship...
About Attitude: Perhaps you've never heard me speak like this. All that can be said has been said — both the good and the bad — but she still does as she pleases. Forget it. Keep Beidou out of my sight.
GorouGorouCaptain Beidou values camaraderie, and her exceptional abilities command respect. She once said that she prefers to avoid involving her companions in disputes that don't concern them, which I can completely understand. That's why I only request her help when we have no one else to turn to.
