Best Beidou Build in Genshin Impact
Beidou is the captain of a renowned crew in Liyue known as The Crux. The following are the artifacts and weapons that work best on Beidou’s DPS build.
Two artifact sets work best on Beidou. The Gladiator’s Finale and Thundering Fury. If you equip two pieces of Gladiator’s Finale, then you get an 18% increase in Attack. Equipping four pieces gives a 35% increase in Normal Attack Damage if you use a Sword, Claymore, or Polearm. Thundering Fury gives you a 15% increase in Electro Damage. Equipping four pieces to increase 40% of damage caused by Overloaded, Electro-Charged, and Superconduct. It also decreases Elemental Skill Cooldown by 1s. However, this can occur once every 0.8s.
Even though going complete Gladiator’s Finale set is an option, you can also go two pieces Gladiator’s Finale and two pieces Thundering Fury. This will allow Beidou to have increased Electro as well as Normal Attack Damage.
The two best options for weapons would be Wolf’s Gravestone and Prototype Archaic. Wolf’s Gravestone increases Attack by 20%. It also increases all party members’ Attacks by 40% for 12s if you attack an enemy with less than 30% HP. Prototype Archaic gives Normal and Charged Attack a 50% chance to deal an additional 240% Attack damage on hit to all enemies in a small area. This effect can occur only once every 15s.
