Like most of the characters in Genshin Impact, Mona is only obtained through the Wish system. This means players will have to roll for her character. With the right amount of time and luck, though, Mona might just join players\’ teams.
As an astronomer, Mona has a lot of magic skills and can benefit the party in a support role. However, some players opt to use her more for DPS in Genshin Impact. Whichever role Mona fills, she\’ll need stat increases that focus on her Elemental DMG, Elemental Recharge, and Elemental Mastery. This is the best way to take advantage of her AoE attacks, and it\’s also great for triggering Elemental Reactions alongside other Genshin Impact characters.
The best Artifacts for Mona should increase her various Elemental stats. Unlike some of the other best characters in Genshin Impact, Mona is extremely flexible in this regard. The Noblesse Oblige set is great for people who want to focus on increasing Elemental Burst DMG. As a more common set, the Exile set is great for increasing Mona\’s Elemental Recharge by 20%. The Instructor set is also great – and extremely common in Genshin Impact – since it will increase Mona\’s Elemental Mastery. Any of these Artifact sets work well with Mona, but players should try to equip four of whichever set they choose in order to get the most bonuses.
The Favonius Codex is the best weapon for Mona, since critical hits will generate an Elemental Orb, which will restore 6 Energy. This is especially important for causing damage, and for triggering quick Elemental Reactions alongside Electro users like Lisa. The 4-star spellbook can be hard to obtain through gacha pulls, but the 3-star Otherworldly Story is more common and still works pretty well. It will increase Mona\’s ATK and Energy Restore, and the Orbs it generates can also restore Mona\’s health.
With the right character build, Mona can be one of the most powerful characters in Genshin Impact. Her true value comes from being a fairly flexible character and from her ability to help trigger Elemental Reactions to take down enemies quickly. Any Artifacts and weapons for Mona should reflect those various Elemental skills to make her as powerful as possible.
