Diluc may just joined the cast of Genshin Impact four months ago but it has quickly become one of the most popular and one of the best five star DSP characters in the game. This one is so good at dealing high amounts of damage with both elemental and normal attacks. When you pair him with the right build and party members, the damage output of him is simply amazing. Are you looking for the best build of one of the characters in Genshin Impact called Diluc? You are in the right page.
Even though Diluc can be used as a support character, he shines the best in the primary DPS role. If you make a team by using Diluc as the sole DPS character, you should be able to deal with almost each opponent in the game easily. Here is everything that you should know if you want to make the best build for this character in this game.
Best DPS build of Diluc in Genshin Impact
As you probably know, Diluc was designed as a DPS character first and foremost, so the main focus is the build that makes it possible for him to deal as much damage as possible. the attacks of Diluc are mostly based on Pyro, meaning the Crimson Witch of Flames artifact set is the best option for maximizing his damage output. In case there us no artifact set, you can look for the ones that provide boosts to Pyro damage, attack damage, and critical rate or damage.
All Pyro damage can be boosted by 15% with just two pieces of the Crimson Witch of Flames set. If you use four pieces of the set, the damage will be multiplier, increasing overloaded and burning damage by 40%. On top of that, your elemental skills will get a damage buff. The sad news is that there is nothing in the game that rivals this artifact set and it should be your main focus when building towards a DPS Diluc.
You have to take a note that if you want to get the best out of Diluc, considering your standard attack pattern may be needed. In order to maximize your DPS as Diluc, you can try to space out Searing Onslaught in between each normal attack. Instead of making gaps after the standard normal attack animations of Diluc, spacing it out creates a constant loop of damage. It is possible for you to deal more damage in a shorter period of time by optimizing the way you attack the opponents.
The best weapon for Diluc is called Wolf’s Gravestone. This one has an excellent effect that awards each party member a damage boost of 40% when targeting the weakened opponents. If you want an alternative with a lower cost, you are suggested to get the Prototype Archaic. This one is a four star that has a 50% chance of dealing an extra 240% attack damage to opponents. It might not be as good as the previous one but it can be forged at a Blacksmith. Another good thing is the fact that it does not involves any gacha mechanics.
In the end, you might want to try to pair Diluc with the characters that can get the most out of his abilities. Due to his Cryo abilities, Kaeya is the perfect option. You will be allowed to perform the elemental reaction Melt with Kaeya. After making the opponent frozen by taking the advantage of Kaeya’s ultimate ability, it is time for Diluc to rack up loads of elemental resonance effect to increase your attacks by 25%. Do not forget to include a healer to make sure your team stays alive throughout multiple fights. As for the healer, the most recommended one is Xingqui.
