It is intended to be a brief overview of the strengths/weaknesses of the character, with the authors own opinions on the best currently available gear to pair with the character.
A DPS is the captain of a pirate crew. They just tell their crewmates what to do so their job gets easier. Make sure to help your captain or walk the plank (it's cause Beidou is a pirate).
Both Beidou's abilities scale off ATK, but her E also scales with HP. She's arguably one of the most satisfying characters to play, which really do make her "bae doe." BUCKLE DOWN ME MATEY, WE'RE GOIN' ON A TRIP WITH THIS TL;DR.
Conqueror of Tides
Decreases all party members' swimming Stamina consumption by 20%.
IMPORTANT TIP: There are 2 ways to use E.
Tap E to instantly slash in front of her dealing electro damage.
Hold E to put up a shield that absorbs damage and release to dish that damage + more back to the enemy.
Using E will apply electro proc on yourself, so just be careful not to take hydro damage or you will stun lock yourself.
Her E has some explaining to do:
- The shield from holding E scales with HP. The more HP = more you can store damage (but you don't need to build HP).
- The SHIELD WILL BREAK IF THE DAMAGE ABSORBED EXCEEDS IT'S TOTAL HEALTH. This will forcibly release the E and you WILL TAKE THE EXCESS DAMAGE.
- Taking 2 instances of damage while holding E will grant it maximum damage (caps at 2 stacks).
Example: no attacks blocked = 200%, one attack blocked = 400%, two attacks blocked = 800%
Counterattacking with Tidecaller at the precise moment when the character is hit grants the maximum DMG Bonus.
Basically you need to learn how to use her E to dish maximum damage. It isn't strict, so you can still get perfect counters if you do it a second too early or late. YOU CAN TELL IT'S A PERFECT COUNTER BECAUSE A GIANT ELECTRO AURA WILL OCCUR.
Gain the following effects for 10s after unleashing Tidecaller with its maximum DMG Bonus:
- DMG dealt by Normal and Charged Attacks is increased by 15%. ATK SPD of Normal and Charged Attacks is increased by 15%.
- Greatly reduced delay before unleashing Charged Attacks.
Getting a perfect counter or taking 2 instances of damage while holding E procs this passive. Makes Beidou slap like an actual truck. My advice is getting good at perfect countering arrows from Hilchurls and you'll be a master.
|Shield DMG Absorption||18.0% max hp+1837|
|DMG Bonus on Hit Taken||200%|
This is her bread and butter. Learn how to master this quickly if you want to really watch Beidou slap her simps around.
Beidou said "nah" to taking damage, so her ultimate reduces damage taken and also dishes damage while you normal/charged attack. STAYS WHEN YOU SWAP CHARACTERS (which is why she can also be a great electro support!).
WEAPON #1 (Recommended for MAXIMUM BOOTY): Wolf's Gravestone
How do I get it D: ?: It's time to roll boys (gacha)
Has base ATK scaling and do I really need to say anything? She's already a dumpster truck by herself, this weapon just makes her the landfill.
WEAPON #2 (Recommended for early bonk go to horny jail): Debate Club
How do I get it D: ? - Go slap some monsters and steal their chests, or it's time to roll boys (gacha)
Has base ATK scaling and synergizes really well with Beidou since she focuses on normal/charged attacks.
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for maximum slappage): Martial Artist + Berserker (2 pieces each)
How do I get it D: ? - Martial Artist at Hidden Palace of Zhou Formula Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run). Berserker at any World Boss (40 Resin per run), or slap a few monsters and steal their chests.
You can also run 2-set Sojourner or Brave Heart instead of Martial Artist (or just both of those at the same time) as well.
ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for HIYAH *shield spam*): Thundering Fury
How do I get it D: ? - Midsummer Courtyard Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run).
Compliments her E and Q damage, but also helps her spam E for faster Lightning Storm passive proc.
You can run Gladiator's Finale if you want, but I highly recommend Martial Artist over the other two sets.
DO NOT WORRY ABOUT STACKING HP. You can still focus on ATK% > CRIT% > CRIT DMG > ATK/Elemental Mastery as you don't want to be AFK holding E a long time. It's better to honestly have the shield shatter and return to doing normal attack parses (your Flower of Life should be more than enough)!
Main stats: ATK% Sands / Electro DMG% Goblet / CRIT% or CRIT DMG Circlet
Substats: CRIT% > CRIT DMG > ATK > EM
