Ability Tips

To make Mona’s burst damage trigger the Vaporize 2.0x multiplier:

  1. Apply Pyro on enemy.
  2. Cast Burst (should react and remove Pyro status on the enemy after using Burst).
  3. Wait 2.5 seconds for Mona’s burst ICD (Mona should stay on field if you have Bennett, to keep the buff).
  4. Swap to Pyro character and apply Pyro on enemy.
  5. Burst will pop after enemy gets hit, applying Hydro and vaporising her damage.

Gameplay Tips

Mona’s Elemental Skill provides taunt and procs wet status on enemies, her Elemental Burst is also capable of rendering smaller enemies immobile (Mona needs to be at least 20 levels within the enemy’s level) and providing a huge damage burst (and additional omen debuff after proc).

Look to the Nuke Mona’s Ability Tip section for Vaporize Nuke set up instructions.

  • 2. Crit Rate
  • 3. ATK%

**Offensive stats aren’t needed, just stack ER for comfortable Elemental Burst uptime

Talent Priority

  • 1. Burst

Ability Tips

Mona’s Burst applies bubble and Omen debuff upon cast, the count down timer only begins when the bubble is broken.

Frozen enemies can have their bubbles preserved as long as enemies stay in a frozen state. This technique makes Mona a priority Support for Freeze DPS teams.

Gameplay Tips

Mona’s main role on a freeze team is to provide Omen debuff from her burst as it is extendable via Freeze mechanics. Note that you must apply Cryo before casting Mona’s Elemental Burst for the extension to happen. Omen Freeze extension can be done by reapplying Cryo and Hydro aura consistently (this can be done with Cryo/ Hydro infused Venti Elemental Burst + on-field Cryo/ Hydro aura).

Regarding Artifact Sets:

  • Tenacity of the Millelith (4): Run this set if there’s already another character with Noblesse Oblige (4) on the team.

Regarding Weapon Choices:

  • Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers: Generally the best option on Freeze Support Mona because she can furthermore buff the ATK of your Main DPSThis however comes with an assumption that with TTDS, you still have 100% Elemental Burst uptime. If you do not, pick the other Energy Recharge weapon options for more Elemental Burst uptime.
