Barbara - Best Team

Best Party For Barbara

Barbara's kit restricts her to be support/healer due to her Elemental Burst only heals and doesn't deal any damage. She can still be used as a sub-dps, but it's a pretty niche build for Barbara.

Premium Team

SupportMain DPSSub-DPSSupport
- Barbara will act as support rather than damage dealer. Her main point will be to apply Hydro to enemies to start the reverse vaporize combo. Save her Skill to when you're engaging in melee with Diluc
- Diluc will be the main DPS of the team and will be on-field for most of the time. Make sure to take use his Skill on Hydro-affected enemies to get Vaporize even when the combo is not ready yet
- With Venti, use him to group up enemies and apply Hydro to them with his Burst. It's important that you Swirl Hydro so Diluc can Vaporize it with either his Skill or Burst
- Bennett can be used to enable Diluc to deal even more damage during the Vaporize combo. He can also act as a battery for Diluc so he can get his Burst sooner

Team Combo

Recommended Rotation
1Start with Barbara to apply Hydro to an enemy
2Use Venti's Burst at Hydro-afflicted enemy to swirl and group them up
3Bring out Bennett's Burst
4Unleash Diluc's Burst. You can then close distance and clean up remaining enemies with Diluc's Skill while they are still Hydro-affected
Character Substitutes
DilucDiluc YanfeiYanfei - Yanfei will act as the main DPS. Particularly, she should be the one that will proc Vaporize when Sucrose uses her Burst and infuses with Hydro
VentiVentiSucroseSucrose - Sucrose can group up enemies and increase the Elemental Mastery of the team. Make sure to swirl Pyro first with her Elemental Skill to increase its damage, before using your Burst to pull enemies and infuse against Hydro
BennettBennettZhongliZhongli- Zhongli's main point will be to shield the team and provide extra crowd control with his Burst. With a full set of Tenacity of the Milileth, he can also give the team attack boost with his Skill

Free To Play Friendly Party

- Barbara will act as the main support and can even start combos with either Melt or Vaporize with the rest of th team
- Xiangling will be the main DPS and will be on the field for most of the time. Combo her Burst with Kaeya's Burst to get constant Melt Damage
- Amber can be a finisher when you freeze enemies with Barbara and Kaeya
- Kaeya can constantly apply Cryo when needed. Use him for either Freezing and Vaporizing enemies
