do you think that two piece golden troupe two piece gilded dreams will work

Anonymous 39

Yea, Nahida’s weapon is good with Gilded since you can go att% on goblet sands and Sub DPS builds (Fischl beats it barely at c4). Only situation it’s bad in is Yae hyper with Benny, Sara, flex/battery. Just remember her turrets proc aggravate every three hits.

Anonymous 38

She should be an S DPS after Dendro tbh.

Anonymous 37

Would nahida's weapon be any good for miko if someone were to accidentally pull one without nahida?

Yep, we need hyperbloom team mentioned. Arguably, it's now the strongest team for Miko. But anyway, I appreciate your hard work on this site and your not downgrading Miko! Thanks!
