Navia What Kind Of Character

Navia is a geo DPS that focuses on using Elemental Skill as a source of damage. Everytime Navia get a shield from Crystalize reaction, she will get a bullet stacks that would increase the damage of Elemental Skill.

Strengths & Weakness Of Navia

- Can work as a Main DPS with long up-time or a quick-swap DPS that deals powerful damage with short on-field time.
- Has one of the highest Base ATK among characters.
- Very easy to use and has multiple team comps.
- Geo having no access to damage boosting reaction makes Navia's DMG lower than top-class DPS.
- AoE of Elemental Skill is narrow and requires you to be close to enemies to deal maximum damage.

Nighttime Whispers In The Echoing Woods Fits Navia's Kit

Navia increases damage when she absorbs Crystalize. This artifact works well with Navia and the best for boosting damage. If you are still farming for the perfect set of Echoing Woods, you can opt to use ATK set and Geo Set.

When Using Golden Troupe, Opt For A Quick Swap Playstyle

DMG Bonus is very important for Navia since she has many sources of ATK with Passive and outside buffs making Golden Troupe an amazing set. However, when using Golden Troupe, make sure to opt for a Quickswap so you do not lose the DMG boost from 4pc. set.

Increase ATK & DMG Bonus While Aiming For 70/140 CRIT Rate & DMG

Navia Skill Guide & How To Use Navia

2Switch to Navia and use Elemental Burst.
3Use Hold Elemental Skill to absorb shards and shoot.
Optional: Deal Normal Attack damage to produce Crystalize.

Effects Of Elemental Skill

Elemental Skill Deals Powerful Frontal Damage

Elemental Skill of Navia has 2 charges and deals powerful frontal damage. This is the main source of damage of Navia. You can power up the Elemental Skill by absorbing Crystalize shards. This will also give 3 seconds of infusion.

Boost Damage By Absorbing Crystalize Damage

3 Crystals6 Crystals
3 Stack
6 Stack

When Navia or other members of the team absorbs Crystal shards more Shots will be sprayed by Elemental Skill. The more bullet that hit the enemies, the higher the damage they will receive. 3 Stacks is the maximum increase of bullets and anything above 3 (maximum of 6 Stacks) increases the damage by 15%.

You can aim the Elemental Skill of Navia. Aiming towards Crystalized Shards will make Navia absorb them.

Make Sure To Use DMG While Close To Enemy

Navia's Elemental Skill has a fairly narrow range so it is recommended to use the Elemental Skill when you are very close to the enemy. The further you are the enemy, the smaller the damage you deal.

Effects Of Elemental Burst

Elemental Burst Deals Multiple Hits Of Geo

Elemental Burst deals will launch a series of attack of Geo all over the field for 12 seconds. This area follows Navia's location and automatically hit opponents within Navia's range.

Mainly Used for Crystalize Reaction & Getting Stacks

Navia requires consistent production of Crystalize to continuously deal powerful damage from Elemental Skill. Elemental Burst mainly helps with that.

To the person giving me advise on Albedo thank you , I have still been unsure but that is a good idea , I dont have much time left but will try it . I have been practicing her rotations in the event also. thank you again

Anonymous 10

I use R5 Sacrificial greatsword because you get to use her E 3 times at once.

Anonymous 9

To the person with Albedo I would say try and farm her Artifact set (while contemplating) and if you get a decent one she is worth it. Albedo fits as well with her as Big Zo and the artifacts help her go crazy. Just put Bennett on all Att% and her damage gets close to top tier DPS.

Having the unforged weapon rusting away. I'm tempted to get her plus I have albedo on shelf but don't know
