Noelle is a 4-star Geo user that you can get pretty early on in Genshin Impact. In order to make the most of the character, you need to level her up and upgrade her talents. You will also need the right artifacts and weapon for her. In this Genshin Impact guide, we are going to walk you through the talent and ascension materials you need to level up Noelle and recommend a build for her.
Genshin Impact Noelle Ascension And Talent Materials
In order to make the most of the character, you need to level her up and upgrade her talents. The following are all the resources that you need in order to do that and where you can get them from.
The following are the ascension materials that you need to level up Noelle to level 90:
- 1x Prithiva Topaz Silver
- 9x Prithiva Topaz Fragment
- 9x Prithiva Topaz Chunk
- 6x Prithiva Topaz Gemstone
- 46x Basalt Pillar
- 168x Valberry
- 18x Damaged Mask
- 30x Stained Mask
- 36x Ominous Mask
You can get Prithiva Topaz Silver and higher-tier variants of the resource by completing the Wolf of the North weekly challenge or by beating the Geo Hypostasis. The Geo Hypostasis also drops Basalt Pillar. so this is the boss that you should prioritize. Once you have the lower-tier resources, you can use the crafting bench to convert them into their higher-tier variants. Valberry can be found in the wild in Stormbearer Point and the Stormbearer Mountains among other locations. Damaged Mask and higher-tier variants of the resource can be farmed by beating Hilichurls. You can use the crafting bench to convert lower-tier variants into higher-tier resources.
The following are the talent materials that you need to upgrade Noelle’s talents:
- 9x Teachings of Resistance
- 63x Guide to Resistance
- 114x Philosophies of Resistance
- 18x Damaged Mask
- 66x Stained Mask
- 93x Ominous Mask
- 18x Dvalin’s Claw
- 3x Crown of Insight
Dvalin’s Claw can be obtained by completing the Stormterror weekly challenge. You can only get rewards from this boss once a week. So this can take a while. If you have other drops from this boss then you can convert them into Dvalin’s Claw at the crafting bench if you have Dream Solvent. Crown of Insight can be earned by taking part in special events or by leveling up the shrine tree in Inazuma.
Best Genshin Impact Noelle Build
Upgrading the unit and her talents is not going to be good enough. In order to tank and deal damage, you will need the right artifacts and weapon. The following is the build that we recommend for Noelle in Genshin Impact.
The Unforged is the best weapon that we can recommend. This is a 5-star weapon, so you do need to spend your Primogems on the weapons banner if you have not already got it. Attack% is the bonus stat of the weapon and it increases the strength of your shield by 20%. When you attack an enemy, your attack is increased by 4% and this can stack up to 5 times. When you are protected by a shield, your attack is increased by 100%.
Skyward Pride is another 5-star weapon that we can recommend. Energy recharge is the bonus stat of the weapon and it increases all damage that you deal by 8% after you activate your Elemental Burst. Normal and charged attacks deal 80% of attack damage in the form of an unleashed blade. The blade can be used a total of 8 times during a 20-second duration.
The Bell is a 4-star weapon that we can recommend if you do not have Unforged and are not looking to spend too many wishes on the weapons banner. HP% is the bonus stat of the weapon which will increase the survivability of your unit. When you take damage, a shield is generated that absorbs 20% of your max health. While you are protected by the shield, your damage is increased by 12%. Your shield can only last for 10 seconds and this shield can only be triggered once every 45 seconds.
Whiteblind is another great weapon that we can recommend. It has defence as the bonus stat and on hit, attack and defense is increased by 6% for 6 seconds. This can stack up to 4 times.
If you are interested in using Noelle as your main DPS then we can recommend going with Retracing Bolide. With 4 pieces on this artifact set is going to increase your shield strength by 35%. Note that this only applies to Noelle and not the other characters in your party. While you are protected by a shield, your normal and charged attack damage gets an extra 40% buff.
We can also recommend the Gladiator’s Finale set. This is going to increase attack by 18% and normal attack damage by 35%. In both cases, you should prioritize defense and crit stats for the main and sub-stats of the artifacts.
