Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun Teams Guide

by Otto

Raiden Shogun is on live for almost a week. After testing for a week, I’d like to suggest some good Raiden Shogun Teams.

First, I’d like to talk about the positioning of Raiden Shogun – a high DMG DPS with various supportive functions to teammates :

  1. Her Elemental Burst is extremely high – that means any buffs applied on her will be very efficient. While teammates use their Elemental Burst, something called “Resolve” will be stacked on Raiden Shogun(Max:60 stacks). “Resolve” will buff Raiden Shogun’s Elemental Burst DMG.

  2. Her Elemental Skill provides DMG bonus to teammates and the bonus depends on the energy consumed, which is 0.3%/Energy at highest elemental skill level. That means the DMG bonus of Elemental Burst of 80 energy required is 80*0.3=24%.

  3. Her Elemental Skill provides frequent and steady electro attachment off field, which create possibility of team using electro-related elemental reactions.

  4. Her Elemental Burst restores energy of teammates. Personally i think this is the MOST outstanding feature of

  5. C6 Raiden Shogun Elemental Burst is very strong, it can lower CDs(Max-5S) of teammates’ Elemental Burst.

What’s about the build of Raiden Shogun, simply speaking :

  1. For Artifacts, use Emblem of Severed Fate, main stats : ATK% or Energy Recharge for Sand, Electro DMG for Globet(but ATK% for high refined Engulfing Lightning), CRIT DMG or CRIT Rate for Circlet(Depends on which one you are lacking)

  2. Best weapon : 5 Stars-Engulfing Lightning/4 Stars-The Catch

So, here are some suggested partners of Raiden Shogun :

C6 Kujou Sara – C6 Kujou Sara increases Electro CRIT DMG of teammates, which makes her best partner of Raiden Shogun.

Bennett – The ATK Bonus provided by Bennett is amplified when using on Raiden Shogun as Raiden Shogun’s Elemental Burst gets very High DMG.

Kazuha – Kazuha is always the best buff machine, it can increase Raiden Shogun’s DMG and lower Electro Resistance of enemies.

Xiangling – Overload Team requires Xiangling, also Raiden can help recharge Xiangling’s strong Elemental Burst.

Eula – Raiden Shogun can help recharge of Eula’s Elemental Burst and also provide Electro attachment for Superconduct which maximizes DMG of Eula’s Elemental Burst.

Yoimiya – Another good partner of Raiden Shogun for Overload team. You will find the enemies can’t stand still when being attacked by Yoimiya with Raiden Shogun’s Elemental Skill.

How should we make Raiden Shogun Main DPS Team with these characters? There are several suggestion :

Thunder Team #1 – Raiden Shogun, C6 Kujou Sara, Beidou, Bennett
Comment : Core of the team is pure Electro DMG under the buff of C6 Kujou Sara. However, after on live, it was found that Beidou’s Elemental Burst can’t be triggered when Raiden Shogun using Elemental Burst. China Bros and some streamers have already reflected to Mihoyo and see if they will fix the bug.

Thunder Team #2 – Raiden Shogun, C6 Kujou Sara, Kazuha, Bennett
Comment : Core of the team is Raiden Shogun’s Elemental Burst, under the buff of C6 Kujou Sara, aid of Kazuha and Bennett. The DMG of Raiden Shogun’s Elemental Burst is maximized in this team.

Eula Superconduct Team – Eula, Raiden Shogun, Rosaria, Zhongli/Diona
Comment : As mentioned before, Raiden Shogun can help recharge of Eula’s Elemental Burst and also provide Electro attachment for Superconduct which maximizes DMG of Eula’s Elemental Burst. This make Raiden Shogun the best Electro Support of Eula.

Yoimiya Overload Team – Raiden Shogun, C6 Kujou Sara, Xiangling, Bennett
Comment : The core of the Team is Yoimiya fast shooting under the aid of Raiden Shogun’s Elemental Skill to trigger overload. Another good point of the team is Yoimiya and Raiden can be switched to each other after their E(Yoimiya) or Q(Raiden Shogun) is CD.

Overload Team – Raiden Shogun, C6 Kujou Sara, Xiangling, Bennett
Comment : The core of the Team is Elemental Burst of Raiden Shogun and off field DMG of Xiangling. Overload is the bonus of the team.
