Full Set Viridescent Venerer Is The Best Set

This build will not work without a full set of Viridescent Venerer. This is due to the 4-piece effect providing a 60% increase for Swirl DMG and the RES reduction of 40% to enemies affected by Swirl. Gilded Dreams Set can also be used but tends to be weaker because of lack of Resistance Shred.

Triple EM For Higher DMG Bonus

Elemental Mastery as the main stat of the Artifacts is ideal when using Kazuha as a support. If you do not have a complete set of Elemental Mastery for Viridescent Venerer, you can opt for Elemental Mastery pieces as a temporary set.
