Kaeya Character Overview & Evaluation
Cross Bodies of Water
Kaeya's Elemental Skill freezes things in an area in front of him, including water! This means that if you're patient, you can use him to traverse large bodies of water! There are a few places you can't reach just by swimming where you can make use of this.
Apply Cryo To Enemies
Kaeya's low-CD Elemental Skill applies the Cryo debuff to enemies. This allows you to pair it with Pyro or Electro abilities to trigger a reaction and get beneficial buffs. This makes him a potent supporter as well as DPSer.Check Out More On Elemental Combos Here
Kaeya - Best Equipment
Recommended Artifact Set Bonus
|Noblesse Oblige||2-Piece: Elemental Burst DMG +20%.|
4-Piece: After using an Elemental Burst, all teammates get +20% ATK. Lasts 12s, does not stack.
|Gladiator's Finale||2-Piece: ATK +18%|
4-Piece: Characters equipping this set who use a Sword, Claymore, or Polearm gain +35% increased regular attack damage.
Noblesse 4-Set Is Best
Kaeya's physical damage is okay, but other characters can perform better. For this reason we recommend getting off your Elemental Burst and using the Noblesse 4-piece bonus to get another character in to benefit from that +20% ATK buff.
Finale Works Too
If you want to build Kaeya as a main attacker, go ahead and run a 4-piece Finale instead. Brave Heart will work if you don't have Finale yet.Check Out A List Of Artifacts Here
