Dori is a four-star Electro character in Genshin Impact and has made her debut in the Sumeru 3.0 update. Dori is one of the first Electro characters that has high synergy with Dendro, enabling new reactions and playstyles for team comps. Dori is mainly a reaction support healer that can be played in a myriad of forms. With the addition of Dendro, existing reactions and teams have gone through drastic changes, and even Dori’s kit on her own is somewhat difficult to grasp. In this Genshin Impact guide, we will talk about all you need to know about Dori, her builds, and the materials required for her ascension.

Best Artifacts Build for Dori in Genshin Impact
Main DPS / SUB DPS Build
Dori can be mainly played as a Support character that can either be a Healer or a Reaction buffer. In the healer role, Dori will be purely a healer. For that, she is best equipped with either a 4pc Noblesse Oblige for damage buff on the whole team or a 4pc Ocean-Hued Clam, which will provide some extra damage. Players can also go with Hybrid artifact sets like 2pc like Maiden Beloved + 2pc Ocean-Hued Clam for even more healing.
In Reaction-based teams and Dendro teams, Dori can be either equipped with Deepwood Memories or Gilded Dreams, depending on the other characters in that team. Her entire kit has mixed attributes for EM and HP, which makes her a bit problematic to build, but also gives some freedom for more team comps. Dori can make use of the Gilded Dreams set that compliments her passive talents to further increase the buffs it provides.
In Dendro comps, she can use the Deepwood Memories artifact set. The 2pc effect is useless for her, but the 4pc effect can shred targets’ Dendro resistance by a great margin, and using this set on Dori, can free other characters to have more offensive artifact sets. In this guide, we will list down the artifacts for the best artifact set build for Dori in Genshin Impact.
- 2-Piece Bonus: Healing Bonus +15%.
- 4-Piece Bonus: When the character equipping this artifact set heals a character in the party, a Sea-Dyed Foam will appear for 3 seconds, accumulating the amount of HP recovered from healing (including overflow healing).
- At the end of the duration, the Sea-Dyed Foam will explode, dealing DMG to nearby opponents based on 90% of the accumulated healing. (This DMG is calculated similarly to Reactions such as Electro-Charged, and Superconduct, but it is not affected by Elemental Mastery, Character Levels, or Reaction DMG Bonuses).
- Only one Sea-Dyed Foam can be produced every 3.5 seconds.
- Each Sea-Dyed Foam can accumulate up to 30,000 HP (including overflow healing).
- There can be no more than one Sea-Dyed Foam active at any given time.
- This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.
- 2-Piece Bonus: Elemental Burst DMG +20%
- 4-Piece Bonus: Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members’ ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.
- 2-Pieces: Dendro DMG Bonus +15%.
- 4-Pieces: After Elemental Skills or Bursts hit opponents, the targets’ Dendro Res will be decreased by 30% for 8s. This effect can be triggered even if the equipping character is not on the field.
- 2-Piece Bonus: Elemental Mastery +80
- 4-Piece Bonus: Within 8s of triggering an Elemental Reaction, the character equipping this will obtain buffs based on the Elemental Type of the other party members, ATK is increased by 14% for each party member whose Elemental Type is the same as the equipping character, and Elemental Mastery is increased by 50 for every party member with a different Elemental Type. Each of the aforementioned buffs will count up to 3 characters. This effect can be triggered once every 8s. The character who equips this can still trigger its effects when not on the field.
Artifact Stats Priority
In order to bring the support potential to the maximum for any character, min-maxing will always have the utmost importance. Dori mainly uses her Elemental Burst to heal and provide reaction utility which determines what sub-stat should be prioritized.
The healer build will have HP% Sands, HP% Goblet, and Healing Bonus Circlet, whereas the reaction build will have EM Sands, EM Goblet and Circlet can be based on whichever stat you need the most. Players should aim to clear the ER% threshold first, because, in optimal rotations, her burst is very important and is the main utility. Once ER% is not an issue, players must focus on boosting ER% / EM / HP% as required.
Note: If Dori uses Favonius Greatsword, then you should also focus on building enough Crit rate to trigger the weapon’s passive effect that can provide extra energy to the whole team.
Desired Substats: ER% / EM / HP%
|Artifact Type||Main Stat||Sub Stat Priority|
|Flower||HP||ER% / EM / HP% > ATK%|
|Plume||ATK||ER% / EM / HP% > ATK%|
|Sands||ER% / EM / HP%||ER% / EM / HP% > ATK%|
|Goblet||HP% / EM||ER% / EM / HP% > ATK%|
|Circlet||Healing Bonus / CR% / CD%||ER% / EM / HP% > ATK%|
ER% requirement for Dori
Dori’s main source of healing comes from her Elemental Burst which has a very high cost and without a dedicated battery, she will require a lot of ER% on her to use the burst more often. The ER% threshold depends on what team comp Dori is used in, but to be on the safe side of things, aim for at least 210+ ER%.
Dori has many choices in the 4-star weapon category for Energy Recharge weapons, which makes it much easier to hit the required threshold.
Best Weapons for Dori
Dori’s Elemental Burst has an energy cost of 80, which means in most scenarios she will require an ER% Claymore to make use of her bust efficiently. Favonius Greatsword and Forest Regalia are very strong choices for her, based on the type of role she will play on the team. For fulfilling the role of a healer, Favonius Greatsword is the best choice. If she is in a Dendro team or a reaction-based team, it is better to use the Forest Regalia, which provides extra buffs, based on Dendro reactions. In this section, we will discuss the best weapons for Dori in Genshin Impact.
Dori can alternately also use weapons like Skyward Claymore and Sacrificial Greatsword, but they won’t be as good as the weapons above due to less synergy with Dori. The Bell is also not a good choice for Dori, as the weapon doesn’t have ER%, as the Sub-stat which would make the Burst recharge faster.
Note: Weapon rankings should only be taken as a reference as damage numbers can skew depending on multiple factors, team comps, characters, artifacts and rotations. So, test your own characters to see what’s the best weapon for them.
