Beidou Guide Genshin Impact : Build, Weapons and Artifacts

Guide to Beidou in Genshin Impact

Beidou is a 4-star Electro character fighting with a claymore. While she can be played as a main DPS, she shines as a sub DPS. She will be able to inflict heavy damage with her elemental rampage and apply a powerful Electro aura to her allies. The Crux captain excels at creating elemental reactions. We'll help you equip the best build for her with this comprehensive guide to Beidou from Genshin Impact. Our tips and tricks will tell you which artifacts and weapons to give her, as well as who to play her with.

Beidou Constellations

If you can play Beidou without unlocking its constellations, it will be all the more powerful with it.

With his C2 Upon the Turbulent Sea, the Thunder Arises Beidou's elemental rampage hits 2 more enemies, so you'll do more area damage.

C6 Bane of Evil reduces the Electro resistance of enemies by 15% when Beidou's elemental rampage is active.

How to play Beidou in Genshin Impact ?

Beidou gameplay

Beidou is an excellent sub DPS, particularly with his elemental rampage. Stormbreaker creates a lightning shield that deals Electro damage for 15 seconds. From then on, normal and charged attacks release one electrical discharge per second on enemies. The active character's resistance to interruption is increased and they take less damage. We advise you to cast Stormbreaker and switch directly to another character (Pyro, Hydro or Cryo) in order to achieve maximum elemental reactions.

Statistics of the Beidou elemental rampage in Genshin Impact

You will also be able to apply Electro and deal damage with the elemental ability Tidecaller. On a single press, Beidou executes a sword strike charged with Electro. On long press, she generates a damage-absorbing shield based on her max HP. It disappears when you release the skill. Beidou then counterattacks according to the number of hits she received.

By attacking right after an attack, the heroine will inflict maximum damage with the passive Retribution. If you have successfully dealt maximum damage, the Lightning Storm passive activates. Your normal and charged attacks will do 15% more damage and their speed will be increased by 15% for 10 seconds. So, with the right timing, you can do a lot of damage.

Our advice is to increase Beidou's elemental rampage first, then his elemental attack.

And finally, an Anemo character (Kazuha or Sucrose) to gather enemies and do more elemental damage.

Beidou will also work in an Overloaded team with Yoimiya, Fischl or an Anemo character and Bennett, as well as in a Superconduct team with Eula, Chongyun and Zhongli or Eula, Diona and Fischl.
