Mika & Diona can apply Cryo to the enemy. Even if Mika uses a polearm, aim shot can still be used. This aim shot is the same as Diona's but Mika can only do this thru Skill.

HP-Scaling Characters

Aside from Cryo vision, another similarity is that they both scale with HP. With higher HP, the support that Mika & Diona can provide becomes better. But which one is better between two?

Mika As Cryo Support & Healer

Tailored For Physical DPS

Mika is tailored to support Physical DPS such as Eula. Apart from healing, Mika has buffs that can improve the damage output of the Physical DPS in the team.

Aim Shot For ATK SPD & Physical DMG Bonus

Aim Shot For ATK SPD & Physical DMG Bonus

Attacking an enemy with an aim shot thru Mika's Skill increases the active character's ATK SPD & Physical DMG temporarily. The buff lasts for 12s and has a cooldown of 15s so it has 3s downtime. Also, the active character gains 60% Physical CRIT DMG when C6 has been unlocked.

Buff With Heal From Burst

Buff With Heal From Burst

Mika's Burst instantly heals the team and the active character can restore more HP to oneself when attacking while the buff is active. The buff lasts for 15s and has a cooldown of 18s so managing to fill up the required energy makes it 3s downtime.

Stacks For Physical DMG Bonus

Stacks For Physical DMG Bonus

You can gain stacks that increase the Physical DMG: 1 stack can increase the Physical DMG of the active character by 10%.

How To Gain Max Stacks?

Initially, the max stack is up to 4 but it is increased by 1 when C6 has been unlocked. To gain the max stacks from Mika, cast his Skill by holding and hitting at least 4-5 enemies or simultaneously activate buffs from Skill & Burst. While the buffs are active, the active character gains 1 stack when scoring CRIT hit.

Diona As Cryo Support & Healer

Can Fit In Different Team Comps

Can Fit In Different Team Comps

Diona is flexible support that can fit in most team comps, especially team comps that involves elemental reactions. She has a shield & heal that can keep the active character safe.

Diona Best Build & Weapon

Active Buffs While Shielded

Active Buffs While Shielded

Aside from being shielded from incoming damage, one of Diona's passive, Cat's Tail Secret Menu, gives the active character active buffs while shielded: the movement SPD is increased by 10% while stamina consumption is decreased by 10%. The buffs are useful for both exploration & combat.

Skill Can Be Used Twice With Sacrificial Bow

Skill Can Be Used Twice With Sacrificial Bow

The passive effect of Sacrificial Bow has a chance to reset Diona's Skill enabling her to cast Skill and produce a shield twice which is great for prolonging the shield.

AoE With Heal Per Second From Burst

Can Fit In Different Team Comps

Using Diona's Burst lets her throw her signature mix that summons a healing AoE for 12s. In order to restore HP, the active character must be inside the range. Only 1 character can be healed at a time so if all of your characters need healing, you should switch them out one by one.

Burst AoE Buff & Debuff

Burst AoE Buff & Debuff

One of Diona's passive, Drunkards' Farce, has a debuff that decreases the ATK of enemies when inside the AoE by 10% for 15s which is great for prolonging her shield. In addition, unlocking her C6 lets the active character inside the AoE gain 200 EM bonus if the active character's health is above 50%.

Mika Vs Diona Tips

Mika As ATK SPD Buffer

Mika As ATK SPD Buffer

With ATK SPD buff, Mika can hasten the combat execution of characters that utilize normal attacks such as Yoimiya, Wanderer, & Ayato. Mika's ATK SPD buff can stack with other ATK SPD from different sources like Yun Jin's C6 & Jean's C2.

If Mika & Diona Are In A Single Team

Diona Is A Great Battery

Diona Is A Great Battery

When Mika & Diona are included in a single team, you can focus on the full HP build for Mika since Diona can already generate Cryo particles, especially with Sacrificial Bow.

Artifact With HP Main Stat Plus Black Tassel

Artifact With HP Main Stat Plus Black Tassel

Mika's buff scales with his max HP so focusing on HP would make his buff even better. Use artifacts with HP main stats plus Black Tassel to significantly increase Mika's max HP.

Use Different Artifact Set

Use Different Artifact Set

Between Mika & Diona, you can only choose one user for Noblesse Oblige x4 because the ATK buff does not stack. Instead, use artifacts that can increase HP & healing bonus such as Tenacity of the Millelith, Maiden Beloved, & Ocean-Hued Clam.

Prioritize Mika For Noblesse Oblige

Since you can optimize the ▲stacks when both of Mika's buffs are active, it is better to equip Mika with Noblesse Oblige over Diona. You can equip Diona with mentioned artifacts above which are beneficial for Diona's shield & heal.

Favonius Lance For Extra Energy Particles

Favonius Lance For Extra Energy Particles

If you want to produce more particles, you can opt for Favonius Lance instead of Black Tassel for Mika.
