Provides Off-field Electro Support With Burst

Beidou functions really well as off-field support. Her Burst spreads Electro easily and decreases any damage taken while in effect. In addition, her Burst at Constellation 1 erects a shield that can protect the active character from incoming damages temporarily. If you can easily gain Energy, use her Burst more often to somehow sustain the shield.

Beidou Can Work Her Way To Get Energy

This build focuses on making Beidou an on-field DPS carry. You can opt to have lower ER since Beidou is going to be the active character who can collect Energy particles by using Skill. She can also be paired with characters that work well with Electro.

Prioritize CRIT Stat As Much As Possible

The Unforged is the best claymore for Beidou since she can erect a shield of her own which can maximize The Unforge's passive. On the other hand, Serpent Spine is an excellent claymore due to its CRIT Rate stat & passive that can further increase Beidou's damage output.

Elemental Mastery Is Also Viable

Meanwhile, EM increases the damage of all Electro-related reactions. Using an EM weapon is great if you already have a good CRIT stat ratio from artifacts alone.

Go For Pure Elemental Mastery When Using Gilded Dreams

It is great to use Gilded Dreams when you are using Beidou as support with Dendro. With pure EM build, Beidou can trigger quicken reaction with Dendro that can inflict powerful damage periodically.

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

If you want to specifically use Beidou as the only Electro in the team, you can change your ATK% Sands to ER to compensate for her Energy for Burst uptime. Do note that you sacrifice damage in exchange for Energy.

Thundering Fury Is Excellent For Electro Reactions

The 4-piece effect of Thundering Fury can periodically reduce the CD of Skill while simultaneously increasing the damage output of all Electro-related reactions. If you are able to proc said reactions, it is possible for you to use Skill more often which could also produce Energy for Burst.

Retracing Bolide & Thundersoother Are Both Situational

Beidou can benefit from both artifact sets but situational. For instance, the 4-piece effect of Retracing Bolide is only activated when Beidou has a shield while Thundersoother is only applicable for mono Electro team comp.

I put "Ultimate overlords mega magic sword" on beidou and it proforms incredibly well. I have her built as a battery and support and the damage is quite good imo then again i was a beidou main lol

Anonymous 9

They again put her into an A-tier. I pray for some consistency. Being a (somewhat) niche doesn't make a character any worse. There will be more and more such characters as the game progresses.

SirKastiqGaming 8

Anyone else remember when she was considered F tier? Yeah I remember. Then she slowly went all the way up to now being considered SS tier. LMAO
