What is the best Genshin Impact Dori build?

Best weapon Sacrificial Greatsword
Weapon substitutes Katsuragikiri Nagamasa
Best artifact set Gilded Dreams
Artifact substitutes Noblesse Oblige
Main stats
  • Sands: energy recharge or elemental mastery
  • Goblet: elemental mastery or electro damage bonus (aggravate)
  • Circlet: elemental mastery (hyperbloom) or crit rate/crit damage (aggravate)
  • Energy recharge
  • HP%
  • Elemental mastery

Dori’s best weapon is the four-star Sacrificial Greatsword thanks to its high energy recharge and potential to reset her cooldowns. Her best artifacts set is Gilded Dreams thanks to its powerful flat elemental mastery buff and flexible four-piece bonus.

Above all, your main aim for Dori is to get her energy recharge up to about 200% or higher, as her main utility is her burst. After that, you should aim to increase her elemental mastery.

How should I use Dori?

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. Her main utility is her burst which she uses to heal her allies even when she is off the field.

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

What are the best Dori weapons?

Generally speaking, Sacrificial Greatsword is one of the best weapons for Dori. Despite it being a four-star, its high energy recharge and the cooldown 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.

Weapon Effect How to obtain
Sacrificial Greatsword Bonus stat: 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
Skyward Pride Bonus stat: energy recharge
Skill: increases all damage by 8%. Creates a vacuum blade upon an elemental burst, normal, or charged attack hit. The vacuum blade does 80% of attack as damage to enemies along its path. Lasts for 20 seconds or eight vacuum blades
Favonius Greatsword Bonus stat: energy recharge
Skill: crit hits have a 60% chance to generate a small number of elemental particles, which regenerate six energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12 seconds
Katsuragikiri Nagamasa Bonus stat: energy recharge
Skill: increases elemental skill damage by 6%. After your elemental skill hits an opponent, Dori loses three energy but regenerates three energy every two seconds for the next six seconds. This effect can occur once every ten seconds and can trigger even when Dori isn’t in the field

What are the best Dori artifacts?

According to Keqingmains, a four-piece set of Gilded Dreams is extremely reliable for Dori. Its two-piece bonus boosts her elemental mastery massively and she’s able to proc the four-piece bonus fairly consistently, despite her limited field time.

Noblesse Oblige is the best option if your Dori build is more healing-focused or generally doesn’t focus on aggravate and hyperbloom reactions. Just make sure no one else on the team is using it to benefit from the four-piece bonus.

If you’re looking for a four-star, early-game set, Instructor is your best bet, especially if multiple teammates are driving reactions.

Artifact set Effect How to obtain
Gilded Dreams Two equipped: elemental mastery +80
Four equipped: within eight seconds of triggering an elemental reaction, Dori obtains buffs based on the elemental type of the other party members. Attack increases by 14% for each party member whose elemental type is the same as Dori (electro), and elemental mastery is increased by 50 for every party member with a different elemental type. Each of the aforementioned buffs will count up to three characters. This effect can trigger once every eight seconds. Dori can still trigger its effects when not on the field
Spire of Solitary Enlightenment domain on Gandha Hill, Sumeru
Noblesse Oblige Two equipped: elemental burst damage +20%
Four equipped: increases all party members’ attack by 20% for 12 seconds after using an elemental burst. This effect cannot stack

What are the best Dori team comps?

As a battery supporter, Dori works wonderfully in a range of energy-hungry team comps in need of a healer. She’s a great addition to a multi-element team, but also fits in well in an otherwise mono-geo team using Genshin Impact’s Itto, Genshin Impact’s Gorou, and Genshin Impact’s Albedo.

Here’s an example of a strong, F2P-friendly Dori team comp:

The connected character continuously restores HP based on Dori’s max HP, and continuously regenerates energy. When the connector between the Lamp Spirit and the character touches opponents, it deals electro damage to them every 0.4 seconds. Only one Lamp Spirit can exist at one time

Compound Interest When the Troubleshooter Shots or After-Sales Service Rounds from Spirit-Warding Lamp: Troubleshooter Cannon hit opponents, Dori restores five elemental energy for every 100% energy recharge possessed. A maximum of 15 energy can be restored this way per Spirit-Warding Lamp: Troubleshooter Cannon

Talent level priority

When leveling up Dori’s talents, we recommend prioritizing the following:

  • Burst > Skill > Normal attack

If your Dori is already at C6 and functions as a reaction driver, prioritize her normal attack over her skill.
