Retracing Bolide

Retracing Bolide is counted as one of the artifacts in the popular Genshin Impact game. Compared to the other artifact sets, this one is not that popular as its bonus set effects are not much useful for most of the characters featured in the game. The effectiveness of the shield is increased by the bonus effect of the 2-piece and the 4-piece one grants more normal and charged attack damage when under the cover-up of the shield.

Recommended Characters

Some people think that Noelle is the best one to get the advantage from the set bonus effects of Retracing Bolide. The reason is because she forms a shield with the elemental skill. The effectiveness is able to be increased by this artifact. It is also capable to empower the normal and charged attack damage.

Some other ones also think that if you have a character in your team that generates shields but it is included as a support or a healer like Zhongli, Diona or Noelle, then you are not recommended to equip this set to them. Instead, please do to your main DPS. By doing so, when the support casts a shield or you get a crystal generated via the Crystallize reaction, the main DPS will earn the advantage from the full effects while the shield lasts. As the contrary, if the main DPS character that you have is considered as the shield generator like Beidou or Xin for example, then you are encouraged to equip this set to them so that you will be able to get the full effects offered by this set every time you cast the shield. Besides, you get a crystal generated by the Crystallize reaction.

When you love challenges and want to try to equip the Retracing Bolide to your support, do it but remember that it is kind of useless. It is like your character does not have any artifact set equipped.
