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!

Ami Koshimizu
February 14


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!"

How Tall Is Beidou?

There is no in-game and official data regarding the height of Beidou. We compared characters and Beidou is Tall comparatively.

Effects In-Game

Character height gives advantages and disadvantages in-game. For instance, smaller characters will need to swim even at shallow waters but they easily dodge some enemies attacks or enter narrow entrances of caves.
