Like many of the characters in Genshin Impact, Noelle is obtained through the gacha pull Wish system. This means players will need a little bit of time and luck to recruit her to their team. However, when the game first released, Noelle could be acquired for free in Genshin Impact for a limited time through the Beginners\’ Wish event, in which she was a guaranteed first-time pull. Because of this event, many players already have her on their team.
While some users prefer equipping Noelle with Artifacts that increase her Elemental Recharge, such as the Exile set, the best Artifacts for her are from the Retracing Bolide set. This set is pretty rare, but it will increase Noelle\’s shield strength by 35% when two pieces are equipped. If four Retracing Bolide Artifacts are equipped, Noelle\’s Normal and Charged Attacks gain a 40% increase whenever her shield is up. This is perfect for Genshin Impact\’s Noelle, since it increases both her DEF and ATK stats simultaneously.
Much like 5-star characters such as Diluc, Noelle uses claymores in battle. The best weapon for Noelle is the Whiteblind claymore, since it means Normal and Charged Attacks increase both ATK and DEF for six seconds. This effect can stack up to four times, which makes it especially great. A more common claymore that also works well is the White Iron Greatsword, which raises DEF while also restoring HP to Noelle every time she defeats an enemy.
Noelle has one of the highest defenses of any character in Genshin Impact. Early on, she\’s especially vital to the party surviving tough fights because of her DEF stats. With any of these character builds, Noelle can be a great fighter while also maintaining high defense in battle.
