Barbara’s kit is suited to Support, and she is considered one of the best healers in the game. In this Genshin Impact guide, we go over the best build for Support Barbara. 

Best Barbara Build In Genshin Impact

Barbara does not have much room for consideration in artifacts and weapons. There are only a few which are perfect for her. 


There are two options for weapons on Barbara. Prototype Amber and Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers. Prototype Amber regenerates 4 Energy every 2s for 6s if you use Elemental Burst. All party members will regenerate 4% HP every 2s for this duration. Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers gives a 24% increase in Attack for 10s to the character on the field if you swap him/her in. However, do bear in mind that this effect can only occur once every 20s. Prototype Amber, in my opinion, is the better choice to use on her as you need to use her solely for healing. 


Maiden Beloved is the only option for the artifact on Barbara. Maiden Beloved gives your character an 15% increase in Healing Effectiveness if you equip two pieces. If you equip four pieces healing received for all party members increases by 20% for 10s if you use Elemental Skill or Burst. This is by far the best option for an artifact on Barbara as it increases her utility to give healing to her allies. 

This is the build that we recommend for Barbara in Genshin Impact. If you want to learn more then you can check out our guide on where you can find Cor Lapis in the game.
