Genshin Dori

Who is Genshin Dori?

Dori is a merchant from Genshin Impact’s Sumeru, who has a reputation for offering a huge range of weird and wonderful wares. She’s a four-star support unit, who wields an electro claymore and restores hp and energy for nearby teammates with her elemental burst.

What is the best Genshin Dori build?

Genshin Dori is a unique character with rare support capabilities, both healing her allies and regenerating energy. She makes for a pretty great battery, too, making her a great support choice for any team with energy-hungry DPS.

At constellation four, Dori’s healing and energy recharge receive a great boost under certain parameters. Don’t worry if you haven’t got this constellation though – it’s a handy bonus, but not a necessary one.

On the other hand, her personal damage really isn’t great, and she does require a lot of energy recharge herself to maximise her potential. But in the right team she can be a true asset.

What’s the best Genshin Dori weapon?

Generally speaking, Sacrificial Greatsword is one of the best weapons for Dori. Despite it being a four-star, its high energy recharge and the CD reset of its skill makes it pull ahead of five-star options like Skward Pride. That being said, Skyward Pride is still a strong option if you’ve got a spare copy laying around.

Favonius Greatsword and Katsuragikiri Nagamasa are good alternates if you don’t have the weapons mentioned above, if only as stat-sticks to boost her energy recharge. There’s also some discussion around how viable The Bell is. The Bell has been considered pretty useless since its release, but Dori can actually make use of its passive – though it still doesn’t work as well as the previously mentioned options.

Dori weapon Description How to obtain
Sacrificial Greatsword Base stat: +6.7% energy recharge
Skill: after damaging an opponent with an elemental skill, the skill has a 40% to end its own cooldown. This can only occur once every 30 seconds

What are the best Genshin Dori artifacts?

Generally, combining two Emblem of Severed Fate with two Tenacity of the Milelith best suits Dori in most situations. Noblesse Oblige is also a good option if no one else on the team has a full set, or you can go with a full set of Emblem of Severed Fate.

Tenacity of the Milelith Two equipped: HP +20%
Four equipped: upon hitting an enemy with an elemental skill, all nearby party members gain 20% attack and 30% shield strength for three seconds. You can trigger this effect once every 0.5 seconds, even if the character equipped with the artifact is not on the field
