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 Support is like eating a hotdog with no condiments. Yeah, it'll still taste pretty good, but why eat a pretty good hotdog when you can eat a bomb ass hotdog instead?
Both Diona's abilities scale off ATK. While her shield and healing do scale off HP, it's fairly low and not worth the investment. Literally everything about this character is a cat lovers wet dream

Diona shoots out cryo cat paws that home in on enemies. Grants a cryo shield on hit. STAYS WHEN YOU SWAP CHARACTERS. Number of paws hit = longer the shield lasts. Applies cryo to self for a tiny bit when shield forms.
IMPORTANT TIP: THESE CAT PAWS ARE DUMB AND WILL JUST ALL HIT THE SAME TARGET HALF THE TIME. EXTREMELY DEPENDS ON YOUR POSITION.

WEAPON 1 (Recommended for rush hour service): Sacrificial Bow
How do I get it D: ?: It's time to roll boys (gacha)
Has base Energy Recharge scaling and makes Diona's E A LOT more forgiving.
YOU CAN RUN ANY OF THE DAMAGE ORIENTED BOWS AS WELL. Sacrificial Bow makes holding E much more forgiving and helps to extend the shield duration. Favonius Warbow is a strong contender, and does better than Sacrificial Bow if your goal is to turn Diona into an energy orb slot machine.
WEAPON 2 (Recommended for that hangover early in the morning): Prototype Crescent
How do I get it D: ?: Forge (Prototype x1, Crystal Chunk x50, White Iron Chunk x50)
Has base ATK scaling and weapon skill feels nice to open up with Diona.
Slingshot is also an incredibly easy placeholder weapon as well. If you don't have either, by all honesty, Recurve Bow is also a solid option early as it's 1) free to get in chests and 2) it provides HP scaling to make the shield and heal stronger.
ARTIFACT 1 (Recommended for a drink on the rocks): Noblesse Oblige + Maiden Beloved (2 pieces each)
Noblesse Oblige - Makes Q do more damage (both explosion and tick).
Maiden Beloved - Makes Q healing much stronger.
Feel free to also run two 18% ATK+ sets, or 4-set Noblesse as it turns her into an ATK buff mule (sort of like a weak cryo version of Bennett Q). You can also take 2-set Retracing Bolide and 2-set Maiden to make the shield stronger too.
ARTIFACT 2 (Recommended for early brain freeze): The Exile
How do I get it D: ?: Any World Boss (40 Resin per run), or go steal some chests.
