Pls fix the Kuki Shinobu Constellation part, That's for Hydro traveler not Shinobu herself.

Anonymous 19

I have her at C3 with her talent at 8, with 4piece Maiden, H. Bonus/HP/HP, Iron Sting. Heals for around 4,900 Hp per tick (and a little over 5,100 Hp when at low health.) Sure her damage isn't great, but I don't use her for that. She applies electro and heals large amounts of HP stupid fast.

Anonymous 18

please DO NOT build Kuki with full HP stats it's wasting your time, the damage was too low it won't clear anything. use EM build she already has 75% healing effect based on her total EM

Anonymous 17

The recommended weapons chart says that Primordial Jade increases Elemental Mastery... it does not.

Anonymous 16

some dendro reactions like aggravate and spread can crit... just focus on em and crit for dendro kuki.
