Best Raiden Shogun Builds in Genshin Impact
Raiden Shogun’s best build is the Emblem of Severed Fate set, paired with Engulfing Lightning. Raiden Shogun gains Energy Recharge from both sets, a stat that is essential to her. It’s more important to use the Emblem Set than Raiden Shogun’s signature weapon because a 2-piece gives her 20% energy recharge and a 4 piece set will increase her burst damage by 25%.
The best weapon in its slot for Raiden Shogun is Engulfing Lightning for two main reasons: It has a sub-stat Energy Recharge of 55.1%(max), which is very important to Raiden Shogun, and it’s passive boosts Attack by 28.8% over 100% Energy Recharge. Raiden Shogun will gain an 80% bonus to attack. Engulfing Lightning gives the user 30% energy recharge for 12 second after an Elemental Burst.
There are no other choices. Emblem Of Severed Fate for Raiden is best, however, if it is not available, then you can try the 2-Piece Emblem or 2-Piece Thundering Fury. You can choose from the following options:
- The best set of artifacts for Raiden Shogun is the 4-piece Emblem of Severed Fate
- If you don’t have any good Emblems, this 2-piece Emblem of Severed Fate and 2-piece Thundering Fury is for you.
- Emblem of Severed Fate 2-piece + Nobless Oblige 2-piece
- Two-piece Nobless Oblige + two-piece Thundering Fury
Priority for Raiden Shogun’s Main Stats and Sub-Stats
The main stats are complicated. It is important to have good Crit Sub-stats for both the Flower and Feather, besides the Attack percentage and the Energy Recharge. Sands and Goblet stats are dependent on your team, or even more important, what weapon you use.
You should definitely have Attack Sands if you’re using her signature weapon, and the Energy Recharge has already surpassed 230. If you are using a weapon that is free to play, such as The Catch, then you will need both Attack Sands, and Goblet.
It’s crucial to use Energy Recharge Sands in place of Attack if you are running Vortex vanquisher, or another ATK%-based weapon with less than 200 energy recharge. If you are running Energy Recharge Sands for Raiden Shogun and have less than 200 Energy Recharge, it’s important to use an Attack Percentage Goblet.
The right order would then be: Energy Recharge Attack%, Electro Damage% > Critical Rate Crit Damage.
|Flower||Flat HP: Energy Recharge, Crit Rate, Crit Damage, ATK%|
|Feather||Flat ATK : Energy Recharge, Crit Rate, Crit Damage, ATK%|
|Sands||ATK% Energy Recharge (Depending upon the weapon) > Critical Rate Crit Damage|
|The Goblet||Electro damage bonus ATK% (depending on the weapon).> Cri Damage Crit Rate > Er%|
|Circlet||Crit damage Crit rate ATK% > Er%|
Raiden Shogun’s passive grants her 0.6% more Energy Restoration, and a 0.4% bonus to Electro Damage for every 1% Energy Recharge over 100%. It may fool players into believing that stacking as much Energy Recharge on Raiden will be the best way to play. Stacking ER% has diminishing benefits at some point. You should therefore also concentrate on her Attack in order to maximize her ability as a DPS sub. Generally, 200-260 energy recharge is enough.
