Diluc Character Overview & Evaluation

Highest Burst DPS of All Characters

Diluc's biggest strength is his phenomenal burst damage. His use of Claymores also allows him to break an opponent's guard easily, particularly with the use of his melee attack + Elemental Skill combo!

Artifacts Can Buff Him Up Even Further

By equipping Artifact sets with useful bonuses, such as the Crimson Witch of Flames, Berserker, and Gladiator's Finale, you can boost his damage even more. Increasing his Crit rate and Pyro damage will cause him to deal absolutely massive damage, so we highly recommend you do so immediately.

Elemental Burst Wipes The Floor With Enemies

AoE Burst

Diluc's Elemental Burst ability summons creatures that deal massive frontal AoE pyro damage. This ability's range is quite big and the damage keeps going as long as the summoned birds are out on the field, making this excellent for taking out groups of enemies.

Diluc - Best Build & Sets

Pyro-AOE DPS Build

This build focuses on maximizing the Pyro Skills of Diluc to become a stronger damage dealer that deals strong damage to multiple enemies.

A small thing I noticed, this lists his affiliation as Mondstadt but the in-game Profile lists it as Dawn WInery.
Also, what would people recommend building on him?
