Genshin Impact 2.1 Raiden Shogun – Best Build

Raiden Shogun is an Electro character and is the vessel of Baal, the Electro Archon of Inazuma. Many players are looking for the best build for the Raiden Shogun.

If you are using Raiden, then like every time, the best weapon to use is the latest weapon that has been added in the update. The Engulfing Lightning is a Polearm that will suit quite well with Raiden’s abilities.

Attack increased by 28% of Energy Recharge over the base 100%. You can gain a maximum bonus of 80% ATK. Gain 30% Energy Recharge for 12s after using an Elemental Burst.

If you are not able to get the Engulfing Lightning, then good alternatives include the Skyward Spine, The Catch, Primordial Jade Winged-Spear, and Favonius Lance.

When it comes to artifacts the Emblem of Severed Fate is the preferred artifact for the Raiden Shogun. Here are its stats.

2-Piece Set– Energy Recharge + 20%

4-Piece Set– Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.
