CR/CD/ATK Sub-Stat Weapon Is Ideal

For a Main DPS Build, it's essential to have weapons that will have either Crit Rate, Crit DMG, or ATK% as their main stat. Wolf's Gravestone is the best, but another good option is the Battle Pass exclusive weapon, Serpent's Spine.

Elemental Mastery Weapons Are Also Good For Reaction Comps

You can also opt to use Elemental Mastery weapons like Mailed Flower or Rainslasher when you are using comp that damage boosting reactions like Vaporize or Melt.

Prioritize CRIT Rate/DMG

Just like any other DPS build, having a good Crit Rate and Crit DMG ratio will be essential for this build. Make sure to have at least a 1:2 CR/CD ratio in order to get the best damage balance.

Choose EM / ATK Sands Based On Sub-Stat

Since Elemental Reactions are often used in Team comps with Diluc. Because of this, having a good amount of Elemental Mastery is also recommended. You can use EM Stands instead of ATK because there are many sources of ATK. Choose which main stat you are going to use based on the sub-stat.

Uses Of Diluc's Elemental Skill

Constant Application Of Pyro

Every hit of Diluc's skill will apply Pyro so it's a great way to proc quite a bit of Elemental Reactions. It's consistent and hits fairly easily.

Can Be Combined With Normal Attacks

Diluc's Elemental Skill can actively be paused to weave in normal attacks for more damage. Just make sure alternate between them in order for the Elemental Skill to continue and not expire.

Uses Of Diluc's Elemental Burst

High Pyro Burst Damage To Multiple Enemies

Diluc's Burst should be used after using his Elemental Skill to deal even higher Pyro damage with its use. It will hit multiple enemies at a time, each with Pyro damage.

Knocks Back Enemies

Enemies hit by Diluc's Elemental Burst will be knocked back once they're caught in it. You can use this to your advantage, whether to give yourself a breather or continue with your assault.

Applies Pyro Infusion To Normal Attacks

After using Diluc's Elemental Burst, Diluc's weapon will get Pyro Infusion. Either use this in combo with another character for continuous Elemental Reactions or just his own for raw Pyro damage.

Diluc Wish & Constellation Guide

Should You Get Or Wish For Diluc?

No Need To Target Diluc When Pulling


Since Diluc can be pulled from both Standard and Limited-time Banners, it's recommended not to aim for him when pulling. It's better to leave it up to chance that you can get him when losing 50-50 from the Limited-time Banners, rather than pulling on the Standard Banner for him.

Best Constellation For Diluc

★★★・・C1: Conviction
Diluc deals 15% more DMG to opponents whose HP is above 50%.
★★★★・C2: Searing Ember
When Diluc takes DMG, his ATK increases by 10% and his ATK SPD increases by 5%. Lasts for 10s.
This effect can stack up to 3 times and can only occur once every 1.5s.
★★★・・C3: Fire And Steel
Increases the Level of Searing Onslaught by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
★★★・・C4: Flowing Flame
Casting Searing Onslaught in rhythm greatly increases damage dealt.
2s after casting Searing Onslaught, casting the next Searing Onslaught in the combo deals 40% additional DMG. This effect lasts for 2s.
★★・・・C5: Phoenix, Harbinger Of Dawn
Increases the Level of Dawn by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
★★★★・C6: Flaming Sword, Nemesis Of The Dark
After casting Searing Onslaught, the next 2 Normal Attacks within the next 6s will have their DMG and ATK SPD increased by 30%.
Additionally, Searing Onslaught will not interrupt the Normal Attack combo.

No Cons Is Good But C2 Will Make Him Better

Since it's difficult to acquire Diluc's Cons and he's a pretty solid character already without cons, having none of them is okay. However, it's recommended to get him to C2 if you can since it greatly increases his performance due to a more constant and stable damage output.

I'm trying to get him for 3 years now and right now his might be B tier but for me he will always be S tier.

sammumel 18

b tier.

your PaL 17

Zhongli for what ?
To protect the dmg bonuses gave by Serpent Spine.

btw i prefer serpent spine because its 2nd stat is CritRate, rather than using Wolf gravestone (2nd ATK)

your PaL 16

this build is great. Fast energy recharge among Diluc, Yelan (favonius bow), & Bennet as the battery too.
When combo starts, Diluc will deal 23K to 40K vaporize dmg per NA.
But the core keys are Yelan, serpent spine, zhongli
