Genshin Impact Diona Guide: Build, Weapons and Artifacts

Genshin Impact Diona Guide

Diona is a 4 star Cryo archer. Although small in size, she is far from being insignificant! Primarily intended to be played as a support, the feline-looking heroine is particularly flexible: she can heal, protect her companions and apply the Cryo element, which facilitates elemental reactions. To help you get the most out of her build, we've put together this comprehensive guide to Diona from Genshin Impact. It will tell you which artifacts and weapons to equip her with, who to play her with, etc.

How to get Diona in Genshin Impact ?

Diona is a 4-star character, so you have a small chance of summoning her every time you make a wish in a Standard Wish or Character Event Wish.

Diona is very good at supporting heal and shielding without constellations. But if you have the possibility to summon her several times, you can make her even more efficient!

Her C1 " A Lingering Flavor " gives him 15 energy points back at the end of his elemental rampage, which will allow her to use it more often.

How to play Diona in Genshin Impact ?

Diona's gameplay

Diona is mostly played as a support in Genshin Impact to protect and heal her team members. Her elemental attack " Cryo Claws " releases claws that generate Cryo damage. When the claws hit enemies, they generate a shield that lasts for a period of time depending on the number of targets hit. This shield absorbs an amount of damage proportional to Diona's maximum HP. For more protection, prefer the long press; Diona retreats and draws 5 Cryo Claws. The shield gains a 75% damage absorption bonus and is 250% effective against DMG Cryo.

In addition, the passive " Cat's Tail Secret Menu " increases movement speed by 10% and also reduces the stamina consumption of heroes protected by Diona's shield by 10%.

Diona's Elemental Skill Statistics

Still lost a few HP? Don't worry, with her elemental rampage " Special Cuvée ", Diona launches a cocktail, which in addition to inflicting zone damage, generates alcohol vapour. The effect causes continuous damage to opponents. It also restores the health of characters in the area to the level of Diona's health. Thanks to the " Happy Drunk " talent, theATK of enemies entering the alcohol vapour field drops by 10% for 15 seconds.

Diona's elemental rampage statistics

Diona's gameplay in Genshin Impact is really simple; regularly cast her elemental talent on long press to protect your heroes and her elemental rampage as soon as she has finished charging. Upgrade these two skills first, you'll almost never use her normal attack.

What is the best equipment for Diona?

Both of Diona's elemental skills are based on her HP; the higher her HP, the more powerful her shield and healing will be. You should also increase her energy recharge (at least to 150%) so that she can use her elemental rampage as often as possible. Here are the best artefacts and weapons that we advise you to equip her with.

For an optimal support build, the best choice is a combination of two artifact sets. Increase Diona's HP by 20% with 2 pieces of the Tenacity of the Millelith and the care which it brings of 15% with 2 parts ofMaiden Beloved.
