Best Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou Build
The following are some of the best weapons and artifacts that we recommend for Shikanoin Heizou in Genshin Impact:
Kagura’s Verity is the best weapon for Shikanoin Heizou but since this is a 5-star weapon, you will need to spend your Primogems on the weapon banner in order to get it. The weapon increases elemental skill damage by 12% for 16 seconds and this effect can stack up to 3 times. The buff extends to all elemental attacks at max stacks.
Skyward Atlas is also a great 5-star weapon that you can use if you already have it. It increases elemental damage by 12% and when you do normal attacks there is a 50% chance of triggering the favor of the clouds. This seeks out enemies and deals 160% of attack damage.
If you are a low spender and buy the battle pass then we can recommend getting the Solar Pearl. This allows normal and elemental attacks to increase each other’s damage. Seeing how you will be using both normal and elemental attacks, this can provide you with a good damage boost.
Lastly, we can recommend Sacrificial Fragments. Using this, there is a 40% chance that your skill cooldown will be canceled. Allowing you to constantly spam your skill.
We recommend using the Viridescent Venerer set. Having 4 pieces of the set on gives you a 15% Anemo damage bonus and increases spread damage by 40%. It can also reduce the resistance of enemies hit by spread by 40%. This lasts for 10 seconds.If you do not have 4 decent pieces of the set then you can pair 2 pieces of Viridescent Venerer with 2 pieces of Wanderer’s Troupe.Alternatively, we can recommend the Echoes Of An Offering set. This increases attacks by 18%. Hitting enemies with normal attacks has a 36% chance of triggering Valley Rite. This increases normal attack damage by 20% of attack. If a normal attack does not trail the Valley Rite effect then offs of triggering it the next time will increase by 20%. The effect can be triggered every 0.2 seconds.Lastly, we can recommend the Shimenawa’s Reminiscence set. 4 pieces of this set increases attack by 18% and increases normal charged and plunging damage by 50% for 10 seconds in exchange for energy.No matter which set or combination you go with, we recommend having Anemo damage bonus on the cup, crit rate or crit damage on the hat, and attack% on the sands piece as the main stats.
