Nahida has the most consistent Dendro application that she can perform as the sole Dendro character in the team. Due to this, maintaining the uptime of reactions is only a piece of cake for her. Her ascension passive makes her a great buffer to characters that need to stack as much EM. Ultimately, Nahida is easy to play, and build, and can comfortably slot herself in a rather diverse range of team compositions.

How to play Nahida Genshin Impact?

Nahida is a Dendro Catalyst Character capable of taking the role of an on-field DPS, off-field sub-DPS and support, and EM buffer, and that is all thanks to her kit.

Nahida Genshin Impact Talents

The Dendro Archon's consistent dendro application mainly comes from her elemental skill, All Schemes to Know. Casting it unleashes the karmic bonds, and inflicts AOE Dendro Damage. Up to 8 opponents can be affected by the Seed of Skandha. Seed of Skandha will unleash the Tri-Karma Purification which deals Dendro damage as well based on her EM and ATK on the affected units after triggering elemental reactions, or after the opponents receive damage from Dendro cores. Due to this, it is always advisable to pair her with at least one Electro, Pyro or Hydro.

Players can opt to tap or hold it. Tapping it instantly cast the skill and affect opponents around her. Holding it however allows her to enter the aiming mode, giving Nahida the ability to select opponents within an area. While in the aiming mode, Nahida will not be able to move.

Nahida's elemental burst on the other hand deals zero damage, but it does not mean it does not bring any value. Illusory Heart brings out a dome-like field providing buffs to Nahida's Tri-Karma Purification and the buff per se, depending on the elements present in the party.

Pyro increases the damage of the Tri-Karma Purification, Electro decreases the interval between each Tri-Karma Purification, while Hydro lengthens the duration of her burst.

With her ascension passive, each time she erects the Shrine of Maya, the active character will also be given 25% of the EM of the character with the highest elemental mastery.

Additionally, another passive of hers will use each point of her EM beyond 200 to provide at most 80% bonus damage, and 24% Crit rate to Tri-Karma Purification.

Nahida Genshin Impact Constellations

Nahida Genshin Impact, like every other Archon in the game boasts a strong set of utilities used for combat and exploration.

Even at C0, she does not disappoint and she perfectly does a great job in her role as a sub-DPS, dendro applicator, buffer and more. However, gaining access to her constellations proves to be valuable especially at C2 and C6.

  • C1: Nahida's first constellation, The Seed of Stored Knowledge upgrades the effect of Nahida's elemental burst by 1, depending on elements present in your party.

  • C2: The Root of All Fullness is the ideal stopping point when aiming for her constellations. With her C2 active, transformative reaction made by Dendro can score critical hits (20 CR and 100 CDMG) resulting in a huge damage boost. Simultaneously, enemies affected by Quicken, Aggravate, Spread will reduce the DEF by 30%.

  • C3: Increases the level of her skill by three, therefore higher damage on her elemental skill and the Tri-Karma Purification.

  • C4: The Fourth Constellation helps Nahida in reaching 1000 EM by 100-160 depending on the number of enemies present.

  • C5: Upgrades the effect of the Shrine of Maya.

  • C6: Given that the sixth constellation requires Normal and Charged Attacks, Nahida must land Normal and Charged Attacks after her skill to use the Tri-Karma Purification: Karmic Oblivion to deal Dendro damage based on her attack and elemental mastery.

That's it for this guide dedicated to the Dendro Archon, Nahida Genshin Impact. Indeed, the God of Wisdom is a top-tier character both in the lore and in-game with her unparalleled kit, making her a solid pick in any Dendro team of your choice.
