Genshin Impact Nahida guide for best build, artifacts, weapons, and more

God of Wisdom!

The long-awaited 4th Playable God character, Nahida AKA Lesser Lord Kushanali is finally upon us with the release of patch 3.2 of Genshin Impact. She got her debut banner in the first phase of version 3.2. Nahida is the current Archon of Sumeru who uses Catalyst as her weapon. She represents the whole Dendro element as the God of Dendro. If you have not read our Nahida pre-farming guide yet, check this as we discuss how to build the youngest Archon of Gesnhin Impact to her full potential with the recommended build, artifacts, weapons, and more.

Genshin Impact Nahida Talents and Playstyle

Skill Talents

After the release of the new Dendro element, one complaint the player base had was the lack of a consistent Dendro applier. Nahida seems to be designed based on this lack with her providing consistent Dendro application both on and off-field.

The most essential part of Nahida’s entire kit is her elemental Skill All Schemes to Know which deals damage and marks opponents with Seeds of Skandha which links the enemy together and procs the Tri Karma purification after triggering an elemental reaction to deal damage as well as apply Dendro on the enemy. Her Elemental Burst Illusory Heart creates a massive domain around her called the Shrine of Maya. The Burst also has unique buffs based on the elemental type of your party member.

  • Pyro: While Nahida remains within the Shrine of Maya, the DMG dealt by Tri-Karma Purification is increased.
  • Electro: While Nahida remains within the Shrine of Maya, the interval between each Tri-Karma Purification is decreased.
  • Hydro: The Shrine of Maya’s duration is increased.

Passive Talents

Nahida’s passive talents make her even more of an Elemental Mastery dependeth character with her passive one Compassion Illuminated providing Elemental Mastery buff to the whole team based on the highest mount of Elemental Mastery possessed by either Nahida or any of her teammates. Her second Passive Awakening Elucidated increases the crit rate (Up to 24%) and damage bonus (Up to 80%) of the Tri Karma Purification based on the Elemental Mastery she possesses beyond 200.


Nahida has access to some petty strong Constellation with her C2 being an amazing all-rounded Con as it allows not only her but the whole team that relies on Burning, Bloom, Hyperbloom, and Burgeon Reaction a pretty significant boost in damage.

Nahida’s Constellations
C1The Seed of Stored Knowledge:
When the Shrine of Maya is unleashed and the Elemental Types of the party members are being tabulated, the count will add 1 to the number of Pyro, Electro, and Hydro characters respectively.

C5The Leaves of Enlightening Speech:
Increases the Level of Illusory Heart by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.
C6The Fruit of Reason’s Culmination:

This effect can last up to 10s and will be removed after Nahida has unleashed 6 instances of Tri-Karma Purification: Karmic Oblivion.”

Best Artifact Sets for Nahida in Genshin Impact

1. Gilded Dream

Nahida’s whole kit relies heavily on Elemental Mastery, the more you can give to her the better she will get in Genshin Impact. The 4 piece Gilded Dream is currently the best Elemental Mastery based Artifact set with the potential to increase her EM up to 230 with proper setup.

2-Piece SetEM increased by 80
4-Piece SetWithin 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 member whose Elemental Type is the same as the equipping character, and EM is increased by 50 for every member with a different Elemental Type. Each of the buffs will count up to 3 characters. This effect can be triggered once every 8s and even when not on the field.

2. Deepwood Memories

The 4-piece Deepwood Memory set is a must-have set for any team that has Dendro DPS or relies on Bloom Reaction as it reduces the Dendro resistance of the enemy by 30%. If none of her party members is using this set then it is better to go for Deepwood 4-piece than any other Artifact set.

Each effect can stack by a maximum of 3. All nearby party members will also gain an additional 40 Elemental Mastery.

2. Wandering Evenstar

One of the latest four-star catalyst users is a good option to go for Nahida as it has an EM substat as well as a passive that provides her with a decent attack to both her and a small attack bonus to her whole party. The attack stat isn’t that desirable for Nahida but if you are on field with her and dealing good damage with her Normal Attack then it can be a good stat worth aiming for.
