KEY POINTS

  • The Emblem of Severed Fate set works extremely well with Beidou
  • Akuoumaru and Luxurious Sea-Lord are effective alternate weapons
  • Beidou's old builds still work very well

Despite new characters being added to “Genshin Impact” over the 2.0 patch, Beidou remains one of the most reliable Electro units thanks to her high offensive support ability and her incredible DPS on and off the field.

Many of the new weapons and artifacts can be equipped on Beidou to great effect, which warrants an updated guide on what could be the best new builds for her in 2022 so far. While characters like the Raiden Shogun and even the upcoming Yae Miko tend to get more attention, players should not sleep on Beidou’s ability to electrocute everything in sight.

Here’s an updated Beidou build for “Genshin Impact 2.4.”

New Beidou Artifact Builds

Much of the core artifact stats for Beidou remain the same. Players will want to get a decent chunk of Energy Recharge and the usual CRIT and ATK stats so she can spam her Elemental Burst without compromising on DPS.

Due to the high energy cost on her Burst, players will want around 130% to 160% Energy Recharge on her artifacts, but this will still depend on the team composition. If there’s another Electro unit with good particle generation like Fischl or Raiden, then players can get away with lower ER values for Beidou.

The Emblem Of Severed Fate might just be the new best artifact for Beidou because of the innate Energy Recharge passive and extra Elemental Burst damage based on her total ER value. On paper, this will make her do less damage than the old Noblesse Oblige and Thundering Fury combo, but not by much.

Best Beidou Weapons

There are a few new notable weapons for Beidou, namely the Akuoumaru and the Luxurious Sea-Lord.

Akuoumaru works best with team comps that have high energy costs, as it will increase her damage significantly. When paired with another Electro character and a team that has good particle generation, the downside of having high energy costs becomes largely negligible.

The tuna sword, on the other hand, is a straight-up buff to Beidou’s DPS output. It provides high ATK and an ATK% secondary stat as well as a boost to her Elemental Burst damage. The titanic tuna passive doesn’t necessarily synergize with her, but the added damage is more than welcome.

Wolf’s Greatsword and Serpent Spine still compete for the title of best weapon for Beidou, but Akuoumaru and Luxurious Sea-Lord make for great alternatives.
