What Kind Of Character Is Raiden Shogun?

Raiden Shogun

Raiden Shogun Is An Energy Recharge Support & DPS Character

Raiden Shogun is both a support and a DPS character. Her Elemental Burst allows her to be an on-field Electro DPS while also buffing the Elemental Burst of other characters and restoring their energy.

Raiden Shogun Also Has A Great Off-Field Electro Application

Raiden Shogun's Elemental Skill gives additional Electro DMG to the enemies when they are damage. This has a 100% up-time but the damage is not very high. This is amazing at comps that needs Electro infliction like Hyperbloom.

Strengths & Weakness Of Raiden Shogun

- Elemental Skill has 100% up-time and great Electro application.
- When using her as a DPS, she boost Elemental Burst DMG and reduces Energy Recharge requirement of the rest of the members.
- Amazing DMG that is competitive against top-class supports.
- Elemental Skill does not activate without damage.
↳ Bad for shredding Elemental Shields against Abyss Lectors.
- Difficult to build since she juggles several stats at once.

Should You Pull For C2?

Advantages Of C2
- Ignores 60% Defense of Enemies During Elemental Burst
Damage during Elemental Burst increases by 1.5x
- Amazing when using Raiden in a Hypercarry Comp.
- Constellation 1 helps in gaining stacks.

@A local barrel
Go for main/sub dps to fully take advantage of her kit.
I run her with Tighnari and Ayato but honestly the Quicken reaction is good enough there. For more dmg output after Raiden burst theres always Ayato for me.

A local barrel 79

Is it possible to hybridize the hyperbloom AND subdps build? or is that a point of no return? help?
