Genshin Impact Diona Support and Healer Build Guide

by 2Board

PSA #1: Both Diona’s abilities scale off ATK. While her shield and healing do scale off HP, it’s fairly low and not worth the investment.

Elemental Skill – Icy Paws

Diona shoots out cryo cat paws that home in on enemies. Grants a cryo shield on hit. STAYS WHEN YOU SWAP CHARACTERS. Number of paws hit = longer the shield lasts. Applies cryo to self for a tiny bit when shield forms

IMPORTANT TIP: THESE CAT PAWS ARE DUMB AND WILL JUST ALL HIT THE SAME TARGET HALF THE TIME. EXTREMELY DEPENDS ON YOUR POSITION

Passive Talent – Cat’s Tail Secret Menu

Shield makes you zoom zoom and stamina drains less (works with dash)

Elemental Burst – Signature Mix

Diona kicks a cocktail shaker at her enemies. Does AoE cryo damage on hit and puts down a cryo field. Enemies in cryo field take cryo damage over time. Characters in the field heal

Passive Talent 2 – Drunkards’ Farce

Enemies do less damage when in the cryo field

WEAPON 1: Sacrificial Bow

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

Has base Energy Recharge scaling and makes Diona’s E A LOT more forgiving

PSA #2: YOU CAN RUN ANY OF THE DAMAGE ORIENTED BOWS AS WELL. Sacrificial Bow makes holding E much more forgiving and helps to extend the shield duration. Favonius Warbow is a strong contender, and does better than Sacrificial Bow if your goal is to turn Diona into an energy orb slot machine

WEAPON 2: Prototype Crescent

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

Has base ATK scaling and weapon skill feels nice to open up with Diona

Slingshot is also an incredibly easy placeholder weapon as well. If you don’t have either, by all honesty, Recurve Bow is also a solid option early as it’s 1) free to get in chests and 2) it provides HP scaling to make the shield and heal stronger

ARTIFACT 1: Noblesse Oblige + Maiden Beloved

How do I get it D: ?: Noblesse Oblige at Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern Domain (AR 35 locked, 20 Resin per run). Maiden Beloved at Valley of Remembrance Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run)

Makes Q do more damage (both explosion and tick)

Makes Q healing much stronger

Feel free to also run two 18% ATK+ sets, or 4-set Noblesse as it turns her into an ATK buff mule (sort of like a weak cryo version of Bennett Q). You can also take 2-set Retracing Bolide and 2-set Maiden to make the shield stronger too.

ARTIFACT 2 (Recommended for early brain freeze): The Exile

How do I get it D: ?: Any World Boss (40 Resin per run), or go steal some chests

Ever see a cat poop out energy? You want to?

PSA #3: For those wondering, stacking HP stats is not worth it. Usually a single HP% artifact + with Flower of Life is good enough. Diona is fairly consistent, but still gets massively outclassed by Qiqi healing and damage (still worth getting her if you desperately need a cryo user other than Kaeya)

Main stats: ATK% Sands / Cryo DMG% Goblet / Healing Bonus% Circlet

Substats: CRIT% > CRIT DMG > ATK/Elemental Mastery > HP%/HP
