Genshin Impact Ningguang DPS Build Guide

by 2Board

PSA #1: A DPS is yo mama. They run the house, and as long as your supports do their job, the DPS won’t get angry. Don’t forget to eat the dishes, clean your homework, and do your vegetables guys

PSA #2: Both Ningguang’s abilities scale off ATK. Meme her all you want, but she’s a goddamn rocket launcher. Remember that scene in Iron Man when Tony releases those mini homing rockets at those terrorists? That’s basically Ningguang in a nutshell

Normal Attack: Sparkling Scatter

Normal attacking poops out a gem. You can have 3 gems total. More gems = more charged attack damage

Passive: Backup Plan

Basically having a single gem = charged attack costs no stamina (SAVE YOURSELF THE 50 STAMINA PLEASE)

PSA #3: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, make sure to normal attack 3 times before you charged attack. IT’S LITERALLY FREE REAL ESTATE (damage). The 3 gems you have will fly out and nuke enemies you hit with a charged attack

IMPORTANT TIP: Hold W (or any direction) while normal attacking, as it will reset the animation half way. This will allow you to get normal attacks faster = stack gems faster

Elemental Skill: Jade Screen

Drop a literal, whole wall on your enemies. Does AoE geo damage and blocks any projectiles. Wall HP scales off Ning’s HP (but you don’t need to run HP)

Passive: Strategic Reserve


PSA #4: BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING, PUT DOWN THAT WALL AND WALK THROUGH IT FOR A FREE 12% GEO DMG BUFF (No need to if you’re not phase 4 Ning yet). Just make sure to hit an enemy with it, and not cast it in the middle of nowhere

Elemental Burst: Starshatter

This is what makes Ning so strong. She basically summons homing rock missiles to slap enemies. Her E will summon additional rock missiles if you Q while it’s up

PSA #5: Wow 2Board, that’s a lot of PSA’s already. It’s because they’re IMPORTANT for maximizing Ning’s damage. Please make sure to put E down, walk through it, and THEN Q

WEAPON #1 (Recommended for TACTICAL NUKE INCOMING): Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds

How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)

Has base CRIT% scaling and just provides a super consistent damage buff

WEAPON #2 (Recommended for early pebble power): Prototype Malice

How do I get it D: ? – Forge (Prototype x1, Crystal Chunk x50, White Iron Chunk x50)

Has base HP% scaling and overall provides good utility for the team

Yes, you can run Eye of Perception, Skyward Atlas, The Widsith, Favonius Codex, Mappa Mare and BP Catalyst on her. They’re all extremely good, and flow well with her playstyle. The only weapon I don’t suggest is Royal Grimoire, as it seemed to have inconsistent damage output

ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for earthbending destruction): Berserker + Archaic Petra

How do I get it D: ? – Berserker at any Boss (40 Resin per run). Archaic Petra at Domain of Guyun Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run)

Haha pebble go CRIT

Ever heard what a rock hitting a human skull sounds like?

You can honestly replace Berserker with an ATK 18%+ 2-set or even Martial Artist 2-set bonus. They both performed extremely well and damage output was fairly neck and neck (Martial Artist was a bit more consistent since Ning normal/charged attacks a lot)

ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for early rock action): Resolution of Sojourner

How do I get it D: ? – Midsummer Courtyard Domain (AR 22 locked, 20 Resin per run)


If you are honestly struggling to having near 100% uptime with Ning’s Q, then you can run The Exile for some quick compensation

PSA #6: I know there is currently a bug with Ning where ATK% isn’t providing the appropriate scaling for skills, but this build will still be MORE than enough. Once that gets patched, it will only do more damage

Main stat: ATK% on Sands, Geo DMG% on Goblet, and CRIT% or CRIT DMG on Circlet

Substats: CRIT% > CRIT DMG > ATK/HP > Elemental Recharge/Elemental Mastery (it really doesn’t matter for substats… I didn’t notice it, you won’t either)

Remember to get ATK% instead of flat ATK if you don’t have it as your main stat (referring to your Goblet and Circlet)
