Genshin Impact Mona DPS Build Guide
PSA #1: Both Mona’s abilities scale with ATK.
Passive – Illusory Torrent
This is her passive. She pretty much said “why use my legs when I have MAGIC” and just swims around everywhere (SHE FAST AF BOY). Other characters’ stamina drain 25/s when they run. Mona just build different bro.
IMPORTANT EXPLORATION TIP: SHE CAN USE THIS ACROSS WATER.
Passive Talent – Come ‘n’ Get Me, Hag!
Can Michael Phelps do damage to others while he swims? Don’t think so buddy. Basically you spawn a mini E if you sprint near enemies.
Passive Talent 2 – Waterborne Destiny
As if her kit wasn’t good already, her super soaker gains more damage if she has energy recharge.
Elemental Skill – Mirror Reflection of Doom
She’s a literal brat that taunts her enemies. They’re so pissed of they don’t even realize she’s constantly slapping them with hydro damage.
If you tap her E, it places it far away. If you hold E, it will spawn it where she is and she’ll jump back cause she scared herself.
Elemental Burst – Stellaris Phantasm
Mona is a guaranteed psychopath. Her ultimate is literally drowning enemies near her by putting them in bubbles bro. FRIGGIN BUBBLES. Do them a favor and break them out of their bubbles by blowing them up.
PSA #2: The ultimate itself doesn’t do damage; it’s a damage buffer. Until you hit the enemies in the bubbles, it will just CC them. Any damage done to the enemies will increase the damage of the said ability and cause a hydro damage reaction (which is why Mona is also a great support!).
WEAPON #1: (Recommended for Super Soaker 9000): Favonius Codex
How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha).
Has base Energy Recharge scaling which increases her damage (because of passive). The additional energy regeneration from the weapon skill is also helpful!
Whenever they add Wine and Song, replace it this with it. Wine and Song basically gives a free scaling ATK% + movement speed buff which both feel amazing for Mona.
WEAPON #2: (Recommended for early Super Soaker 9000): Magic Guide
How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha) or you can just slap a few monsters and steal their chests.
Has base Elemental Mastery scaling and provides a constant hydro damage buff.
You can run Mappa Mare early as well. R2+ Mappa Mare is extremely potent for Mona if you aren’t lucky with gacha.
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for cannonball at the pool level devastation): Noblesse Oblige
How do I get it D: ? – Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern Domain (AR 35 locked, 20 Resin per run).
Make her bubbles more bubbly it just does more damage (ever get soap in your eye? It hurts A LOT). It also buff’s your team so the overall synergy just goes through the roof
ARTIFACT #2: (Recommended for a fun day at the pool): The Exile + Scholar
How do I get it D: ? – The Exile at Confront Stormterror Domain (40 Resin per run). Scholar at Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern Domain (AR 35 locked, 20 Resin per run). BOTH YOU CAN GET FROM CHESTS AS WELL.

PSA #3: You could honestly substitute Instructor, Sojourner, Wanderer’s Troupe, or even any ATK%+ artifacts here. My recommendation just plays well with her passive which helps scale hydro damage% extremely well.
PSA #4: ATK% is still your #1 main stat. Substats you can do CRIT% > CRIT DMG > Elemental Mastery > ATK. If you roll Hydro DMG% or even Elemental Recharge for Goblet, that’s fine too (but try to get the prior mentioned!).
