ATK% for Goblet Is Great When Using Energy Recharge Weapon & Sands

Since Energy Recharge will already increase Electro DMG Bonus, it is recommended to use ATK% goblet to increase the base ATK where Damage will be calculated.

Use Electro DMG Bonus If Weapon Gives Enough ATK

If you are using a weapon that boost attacks such as Engulfing Lightning and other five star weapons, it is recommended to use an Electro DMG Bonus Cup instead.

Strengths Of Raiden Shogun

Effective Electro Off Field Support With 0 Downtime

The Elemental Skill of Raiden Shogun has a 25 second duration partnered with 9 second cooldown enabling it to be always active. It is also an AOE which makes it an amazing skill for spreading Electro status.

Powerful Elemental Burst That Recovers Energy Of Team

The first slash of Raiden Shogun's burst is a huge frontal slash that deals deadly damage to enemies. After that all hits will not only deal powerful damage but it will also be recovering the burst energy of the team.

Weaknesses Of Raiden Shogun

Elemental Skill Does Not Trigger At Shields

To trigger the skill of Raiden Shogun, you need to deal damage to enemies. Because of this, hitting Elemental Shields will not trigger the slash making it ineffective at shielded enemies. To work around this, you can either switch characters or fight multiple enemies while being close to the target to indirectly hit it with the skill's AOE.

Requires Characters With High Elemental Burst Cost For Teams

To maximize the damage of the Elemental Burst of Raiden Shogun, it is important to have characters with high burst cost in the team. This heavily limits the team options of Raiden Shogun.

Raiden Shogun Story Overview

The Current Electro Archon

Baal is the current Electro Archon, having power over electro, lightning, and storms. However, she did not take part in the Archon War, having only inherited the title years after it.

The Rules Of Inazuma

Unlike the other Archons Venti and Zhongli, Baal continues to rule over Inazuma rather than relinquishing her power. She sought for eternity for her nation and she will accomplish using her own means.

Actually A Puppet

The Raiden Shogun that the Traveler initially met is actually a puppet being controlled by the real Raiden Shogun, Ei. The pupper will act as her body, while she remains in her own real Euthymia to seek eternity.

Voiceline About Raiden Shogun

Voiceline About Raiden Shogun
ZhongliZhongliTime tempers all volition. Yet she would give up everyone for her beliefs. Perhaps it is for this very reason that she has come to where she stands today... Should the chance come by me, I too would like to learn of the Eternity which she earnestly endeavors.
VentiVenti So, I hear you defeated the mighty Raiden Shogun? Ah,I recall the days when she was a kagemusha, seeking power to perfect her martial prowess. Hehe, she now no doubt employs a wide range of reasoning to get you to train with her. Oh but yes, come close and I shall let you in on her weakness ーdesserts!
YoimiyaYoimiyaFireworks are probably the furtherest thing from the "eternity" that Shogun pursues. She probably feels that their transient glory has no practical purpose in Inazuma *sigh* It's probably something that one who has "eternity" in their grasp will find hard to comprehend. It will precisely because we mortals are like fleeting shadows that we need to treasure such flickers of beauty.
IttoIttoDuring the Vision Hunt Decree, the Shogun had to send her top tengu in person to get my Vision off me. Heh, means she must have found me to be quite the pain in the neck. But, y'know, she's abolished the Vision Hunt Decree now, so no hard feelings, I guess. As long as she's learned her lesson, of course. 'Cause if she pulls something like that again, this old pain in the neck will be back with a vengeance.
GorouGorouGrr, the Raiden Shogun... I could never bring myself to accept her past actions, no matter what her reasoning may have been. Though a peace treaty has been signed between Watatsumi Island and the Shogunate, I refuse to let my guard down. If conflict ever breaks out again, I will resume my place back on the front line.

Anonymous 73

you call her baal at the top but it's now confirmed that baal is her dead sister and that raidens actual name is Ei, so maybe change that

Anonymous 72

Which is better?, R5 “The Catch” or R1 Jade Spear?

TokyoQuaSar 71

69 >> Just call her Raiden and we're good lol. Calling her Baal is at the very least ambiguous.

Anonymous 70

Would and r3 Lvl 80 The Catch be better than Lvl70 Skyward Spine? I'm running ER sands and Atk% goblet. I like SS's atk but without the catch I'm down to 220% ER. Worth making the switch? Is there a max to ER I should look out for?

Anonymous 69

68, Raiden literally says she considered the both of them (Ei and Makoto) to be Baal when Makoto was still alive because she was Baal's body double, Baal's shadow. she is formally known Beelzebul.

Just be cautious of hurting other people over lore.
