Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu Build
Kuki Shinobu is a 4-Star character in Genshin Impact and the very first Electro based Healer! Kuki wields a Sword and can deal damage but also support her group with heals.
Her skills scale with her HP so it will be wise to pick weapons and artifacts that boost that specific stat. Kuki Shinobu is a nice choice if you are looking for a decent support character that can do a little bit of everything.
This Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu Build Guide will focus on the role of Support/Healer!
Table of Contents
Her Elemental Skill, Sanctifying Ring, creates a ring that follows the active character, at the cost of part of her HP. The ring deals Electro damage but also heals the character, based on Kuki’s Max HP! The HP consumption from using this skill cannot drop Kuki below 20% HP.
Her Elemental Burst, Gyoei Narukami Kariyama Rite, creates a field that deals continuous Electro damage to enemies. If her HP is equal or below 50% when you use the skill, the field will last longer.
Weapon and Artifacts
The best option for a good Kuki Shinobu Support Build, is to pick Weapon and Artifacts that boost her HP. Of course there are other options you choose, depending on the role you wish to focus more, Healer or Sub DPS.
The Primordial Jade Cutter, seems to be a great weapon for Kuki. A 5-Star Sword you can get through the wish system, that boosts HP by 20% and provides an ATK bonus based on 1.2% of the wielder’s Max HP.
Other good alternatives include the Freedom-Sworn and Iron Sting.
The Freedom-Sworn is a 5-Star Sword you can get from wishes. It boosts Elemental Mastery and its special skill is as follows:
A part of the Millennial Movement that wanders amidst the winds. Increases DMG by 10%. When the character wielding this weapon triggers Elemental Reactions, they gain a Sigil of Rebellion. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s and can be triggered even if said character is not on the field.
When you possess 2 Sigils of Rebellion, all of them will be consumed and all nearby party members will obtain Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance for 12s. Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance increases Normal, Charged and Plunging Attack DMG by 16% and increases ATK by 20%. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Rebellion for 20s. Of the many effects of the Millennial Movement, buffs of the same type will not stack.
Iron Sting on the other hand is a crafted 4-Star Weapon that boosts Elemental Mastery and increases all DMG by 6% for 6s. Maximum of 2 stacks that can occur once every 1s.
Tenacity of Millelith is a great Artifact Set for Kuki Shinobu. A 5-Star Set that drops in the Ridge Watch Domain and boosts HP by 20% with its 2-piece bonus.
As a full set, when an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using the artifact set is not on the field.
Other alternatives include Maiden Beloved, Noblesse Oblige and Thundering Fury.
Maiden Beloved is excellent if you want to focus on Healing and keep your group alive easier. Its 2-piece bonus increases Healing Effectiveness by 15%, while its 4-piece bonus when using an Elemental Skill or Burst it increases healing received by all party members by 20% for 10 seconds.
Noblesse Oblige is a good option to boost your Elemental Burst! Increases Normal Attack and Charged Attack DMG by 15%(2-piece) and after using Elemental Skill, increases Normal Attack and Charged Attack DMG by 25% for 8s(4-piece).
Finally Thundering Fury is good if you wish to deal more Electro damage. It grants a 15% Electro DMG Bonus(2-piece) and increases damage caused by Overloaded, Electro-Charged, and Superconduct DMG by 40%. Triggering such effects decreases Elemental Skill CD by 1s. Can only occur once every 0.8s(4-piece).
