Gameplay of Alhaitham

Alhaitham is mostly played as a main DPS and will therefore occupy a lot of time on the field. His gameplay may seem complex at first since the character's damage depends on the mirrors he summons. But don't worry, we reveal our tips and tricks, as well as how to play Alhaitham in Genshin Impact.

Alhaitham's skills

Genshin Impact Alhaitham infuses the Dendro element into his normal, charged and diving attacks when a mirror is present on the field.

Statistics of Alhaitham's elemental attack at level 8

The elemental attack Universality: An Elaboration on Form automatically generates a Chisel-Light Mirror. If you have none, it will create a second one. You can have a maximum of 3 at a time. A mirror disappears every 4 seconds. Additionally, when Alhaitham casts this ability, he rushes forward.

In addition to infusing the Dendro element into Alhaitham's normal, charged, and plunging attacks, the diffraction mirrors trigger a radiation attack that deals area Dendro damage when you hit enemies. This effect can activate every 1.6 seconds. A word of advice: the more mirrors you have, the more damage you can do.

The Elemental Unleashing Particular Field: Fetters of Phenomena also depends on the number of mirrors present on the field. If 3 mirrors are active, Alhaitham will perform 10 fast and devastating attacks. But all the mirrors will then be consumed, so his normal attacks will no longer be infused with Dendro.

On the other hand, if there are no mirrors on the field, Alhaitham performs an only 4 attacks combo, but then 3 mirrors appear. If he does less damage, this will allow you to follow up with normal Dendro attacks.

The best rotations of Alhaitham

While it may be tempting to wait until you have 3 mirrors to activate Alhaitham's elemental rampage in Genshin Impact, we advise you to launch it from the beginning and do the following rotation: elemental rampage > normal attack for 4 seconds > elemental skill > normal attack for 4 seconds > charged attack > normal attack for 4 seconds.

With the Four-Causal Correction passive, charged and diving attacks that deal damage to enemies can generate a diffraction mirror (triggered every 12 seconds).

With this rotation, you will have 3 mirrors for 12 seconds and can do maximum Dendro damage. Then switch to your support characters before returning to Alhaitham. Always remember to activate their buffs and apply their element to the enemies beforehand. For example, the Electro element will boost Dendro attacks.

It is also possible to use Alhaitham as a DPS burst by activating his elemental rampage when there are 3 diffraction mirrors on the field. To take full advantage of Alhaitham's potential, the trick is to increase the level of all his skills.

What is the best equipment for Alhaitham?

If Genshin Impact Alhaitham is played as a DPS, it is his elemental mastery that will bring him the most damage. Many of his abilities take into account his elemental mastery number when calculating damage. Likewise, his Mysteries Laid Bare passive grants a 0.1% damage bonus for each point of mastery he possesses to radiation from mirrors.

You'll also need to increase his damage and critical strike rate as well as his energy recharge to allow him to regularly unleash his elemental rampage. To that end, we list the best artifacts and weapons to equip on Alhaitham in Genshin Impact for an optimal DPS build.

The best artifacts for Alhaitham

If you don't play any other Dendro character in your team, the best artifact set to equip on Alhaitham will be the 4-piece Deepwood Memories set. In addition to granting a 15% Dendro damage bonus, this equipment lowers the Dendro resistance of enemies by 30% when an elemental skill hits them, even if the equipped character is not active.

However, if you are playing Alhaitham with another Dendro support, you are advised to equip the Forest Memory set to him. You can then give the 4-piece Gilded Dreams artifact set to Alhaitham. 2 pieces of equipment increase elemental mastery by 80 points, while with 4, triggering an elemental reaction increases ATK by 14% for each character of the same type as the equipped hero (Dendro in this case). The elemental mastery will also be increased by 50 points for each character of different type. This effect lasts 8 seconds and can be triggered every 8 seconds.

  • Hourglass: elementary mastery;
  • Cut: Dendro damage bonus or elemental mastery ;

Which teams does Alhaitham play in?

Alhaitham is a fairly flexible DPS that will take advantage of most teams that rely on Dendro reactions.

Nevertheless, the best teams to play Alhaitham in Genshin Impact are those that rely on the Hyperbloom reaction (Dendro + Hydro + Electro). This will cause Dendro cores to explode on enemies. In addition, you will benefit from the Spread effect which boosts Dendro damage when in contact with Electro.

For example, you can play the team Alhaitham / Nahida or YaoYao / Xingqiu or Yelan / Shinobu or Raiden. It is possible to replace Nahida by another Hydro support or a shield carrier like Zhongli. But by playing two Dendro characters, you will have Dendro Resonance. This one brings a bonus of elemental mastery.


You can also only play Dendro and Electro characters with a team Alhaitham / Nahida / Yae Miko / Shinobu for example.
