Ability Tips

Diluc has a number of combos he can do during his uptime.

N = Normal Attack, E = Elemental Skill, Q = Elemental Burst (N2 would equal 2 Normal Attacks)

His most common combo is Q N2 E N2 E N2 E. This fits perfectly into the buff window of his teams.

For high upfront damage, use Q E N1 E N1 E N1. This falls off significantly if the enemy isn’t killed within this window.

A full rotation combo can look similar to Q N2 E N2 E N2 E N4 N3 E N1 E E.

Gameplay Tips

Regarding Weapon Choices:

These placements assume strong ATK buffs such as Bennett, as Diluc is commonly played with them present in his party.

  • Redhorn Stonethresher: This weapon falls off considerably when strong ATK buffs are not present, still being a top tier option but similar in power to the weapons ranked directly below.
  • Serpent Spine: This placement assumes you can maintain high stacks of the weapon effect. If you find yourself being hit often, a low-stacked Serpent Spine will find itself falling significantly in potential. This weapon scales well with refinements, having the potential to be Diluc’s best weapon.
  • The Unforged: This weapon matches Wolf’s Gravestone while shielded. While unshielded, it loses some potency but is still a strong weapon tied with a low refined Rainslasher.
  • Rainslasher: This weapon should only be used in teams where Diluc is consistently Vaporising his attacks. This weapon scales well with refinements, potentially surpassing Wolf’s Gravestone at [R5].

Regarding Artifact Sets:

  • Crimson Witch of Flames (4): Generally the best go to set for Diluc due to how easily Diluc can stack the Pyro Damage effect, while his burst imbues his Normal/Charged Attacks with Pyro.
  • Gladiator’s Finale (4): For those who are still reluctant on farming for Crimson Witch of Flames (Pre-AR 45), this will still provide a fairly decent increase in DPS as a large portion of his damage is tied into his Normal Attack talent.

Regarding Main Stats Priority:

If Diluc is run alongside Xingqiu where he can trigger vaporize very often, he can run EM sands as an alternative to ATK sands as EM boosts Diluc’s reaction damage significantly.
