Ability Tips

Beidou’s skill grants you an Electro status for a brief moment upon holding it. This means it can be used for status-cleansing (No particular effective element). Can only be done on herself.

Gameplay Tips

Regarding Weapon Choices:

  • Serpent Spine: This weapon can be considered over Wolf’s Gravestone for a Sub DPS Beidou, while Wolf’s Gravestone is equipped onto another Claymore DPS character with higher field time. Beidou can effectively make use of the full stacks, as long as you have her stacks up before swapped away, the stacks will be maintained even while off-field since her Elemental Burst snapshots her stats. Serpent Spine outperforms Wolf’s Gravestone by a significant margin when Bennett/Sara ATK buffs are applied.
  • Redhorn Stonethresher: Depending on the amount of ATK% buffs you’re getting, this weapon can overtake Wolf’s Gravestone in personal damage.
  • Akuoumaru (260 team energy assumed): Akuoumaru outperforms Skyward Pride on a low ER requirement Beidou (where she is paired with other Electro characters to battery her energy needs). At [R3+], it becomes exponentially better and comes very close to Serpent Spine and Wolf’s Gravestone.

Regarding Artifact Sets:

  • Emblem of Severed Fate (4): Even after considering the 4-piece set effect, you should refrain from investing into Energy Recharge beyond what is needed to burst off cooldown as it will result in a damage loss as compared to prioritising offensive stats such as ATK/Crit. In team comps where Beidou has low ER requirements (i.e. when paired with electro batteries), a Noblesse Oblige (2) / Thundering Fury (2) / +18% ATK set (2) [Choose Two] will outperform Emblem of Severed Fate (4).
  • Thundersoother (4): This set works best in an Electro-Charged or mono Electro comps.
  • Noblesse Oblige (4): This set could be considered if the team doesn’t have a Noblesse Oblige (4) user, do note that sometimes Beidou doesn’t benefit from the ATK buff from the 4 piece set if she’s the set holder, so Beidou as a Noblesse Oblige (4) holder isn’t really recommended.
  • Scholar (2) The Exile (2): This set acts as a cheap beginner’s option to provide Beidou with 40% Energy Recharge to help maintain her Elemental Burst uptime.
