Beidou Character Overview & Evaluation
Self-Buffing Melee Attacker
Beidou is a powerful Claymore user that can buff herself up and knock down enemies with ease. Her Elemental Burst ability is already quite powerful, but we found that getting her to Ascension Lvl 4 will provide a huge buff to her Elemental Skill, which improves her attack speed and damage.
Guard By Holding Elemental Skill
By holding Beidou's Elemental Skill, she can use her sword as a way to shield against damage. Depending on the amount of attacks she takes while guarding, she can buff her own damage when the ability ends!
Beidou - Best Build & Weapon
Recommended Artifact Set Bonus
|Gladiator's Finale||2-Piece: ATK +18%|
4-Piece: Characters equipping this set who use a Sword, Claymore, or Polearm gain +35% increased regular attack damage.
|Resolution of Sojourner||2-Piece: ATK +18%|
4-Piece: Increases Charged Attack CRIT Rate by 30%.
4-Piece Gladiator Is Recommended
Beidou's ability "Tidecaller" gives her a powerful damage buff when it ends, so we feel it's better to specialize her into physical attacks rather than focusing on Elemental skills. For this reason, Gladiator is the best choice.
Use Sojourner Early On
If you still don't have the Gladiator's set, you can use the Resolution of Sojourner or Brave Heart sets in the meantime, as they also buff your ATK.Check Out A List Of Artifacts Here

Basic Info & Voice Actor
|Claymore||How To Get|
|Voice Actor (EN)|
|Voice Actor (JA)|
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!"
