Beidou is an Electro user, an element typically reserved for ranged attackers in Genshin Impact. While Electro users like Fischl outrank her on most character tier lists, Beidou can still be a hard-hitting member of any team. Her claymore attacks are slow but can hit for major melee damage as well, which can make her quite useful in boss fights.
The best Artifacts for Beidou\’s build in Genshin Impact come from the Gladiator\’s Finale set. With two pieces in this set equipped, Beidou\’s ATK is raised by 18%. With four pieces equipped, Beidou\’s Normal Attack DMG is boosted by 35% since she uses claymores in battle. While players won\’t get any Gladiator\’s Finale pieces until later in the game, any Artifacts that increase ATK stats work great on Beidou in the meantime.
The best claymores in Genshin Impact for Beidou focus on raising her ATK and DMG stats. The Wolf\’s Gravestone is great because it increase her Base ATK by up to 40%. Once an enemy\’s health goes below 30%, everyone in the party gets a Base ATK increase by up to 80% for twelve seconds. A more common weapon option for Beidou would be the Prototype Aminus, which gives both Normal and Charged Attacks a 50% chance of dealing extra damage to surrounding enemies by up to 480%. With the right materials, the Prototype Aminus can be crafted by the blacksmith in Mondstadt, which means it shouldn\’t be too difficult for Genshin Impact players to obtain.
Beidou is typically ranked as a mid-tier character in Genshin Impact. However, with the right character build, she can be even more powerful and rack up large amounts of DPS. With her high defense stats, she\’s also great for Damage Absorption in tougher fights. She can make an excellent addition to just about any team in the game.
