Genshin Impact's Eula reaching out toward you

Genshin Impact‘s Eula is a five-star character who we recommend using in a main DPS role. She arrived in Teyvat with update 1.5, along with a pyro character named Yanfei. This guide will fill you in on everything you need to know about the flamboyant character.

This claymore-wielding cryo character hails from Mondstadt, and arrived in-game alongside the Born of Ocean Swell banner. With help from our Genshin Eula build guide, you will soon find out exactly what ascension materials you need to gather and will learn all about her skills, weapons, and artifacts.

If you’re just getting started with Genshin Impact, or have lapsed since the last update, we’ve got a wealth of content to help you get (re)started. Grab some goodies from our Genshin Impact codes guide, learn about the best characters in our Genshin Impact tier list, and check out everything we know about the new Genshin Impact update.

Genshin Eula

What is the best Genshin Eula build?

Genshin’s Eula is a strong cryo DPS unit capable of dishing out very consistent, high-impact physical damage, along with high burst damage every rotation. She takes some investment to reach her full potential, but her ideal team comps are relatively cheap to build and don’t require highly contested units like Genshin Impact’s Bennett or Genshin Impact’s Xingqiu in order to work.

She has decent AoE capabilities, and her combo flow is fluid and fun to use, but due to her backloaded skill set, her output can be pretty inconsistent, relying on a mixture of player skill, luck, and the combat situation. As she’s more physical damage heavy, she can also be a weaker choice against specific enemies with elemental weaknesses and physical resistances, making Eula teams somewhat situational.

However, with the right level of TLC and attention, she’s a very fun unit that certainly pays off her investments. Her constellations are also crowning jewels, with her C6 offering amazing benefits, but her C1 and C3 also giving F2P friendly damage bonuses.

What’s the best Genshin Eula weapon?

Song of Broken Pines is Eula’s signature weapon and, unsurprisingly, remains her best in slot option. It offers extremely high base attack, a great physical damage bonus, and its passive boosts her attack% and attack speed, benefitting her even further.

Wolf’s Gravestone is a strong second place, which again is unsurprising. This popular, much-loved weapon boosts her attack%, and can out-damage Song of Broken Pines if you manage to proc its passive. However, the passive’s condition doesn’t really suit Eula’s playstyle and can be hard to proc before the completion of her burst, so it doesn’t quite out-do her signature weap.

Skyward Pride is an interesting alternate, as Eula can make full use of its passive. However, you should only go with this one if you need the energy recharge it provides.

For four-star options, your best option is Serpent Spine. Its high crit rate and universal damage buff suits Eula wonderfully, but it’s a highly contested weapon among other claymore wielders. If you’ve got nothing better, though, you can instead go with Prototype Archaic.

Weapon Effect How to obtain
Song of Broken Pines Increases attack 16%, when normal or charged attacks hit, Eula gains a Sigil of Whispers. This can be triggered once every 0.3 seconds. When you have four Sigils of Whispers, they will be consumed and all party members will obtain the Millennial Movement: Banner-Hymn effect for 12 seconds. Millennial Movement increases normal attack speed by 12% and attack damage by 20%. When triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Whispers for 20 seconds Gacha
Wolf’s Gravestone Increases attack by 20%. Alongside this, attacks against enemies with less than 30% HP increase all party members’ attack by 40% for 12 seconds. This can only occur once every 30 seconds Gacha
Skyward Pride Increases all damage by 8%. When an elemental burst, normal, or charged attack hits an enemy, a vacuum blade forms, dealing 80% of attack as damage all enemies in its path. This effect lasts for 20 seconds, or eight vacuum blades Gacha
Serpent Spine Every four seconds a character is on the field, they deal 6% more damage and take 3% more damage. This effect has a maximum of five stacks and does not reset if the character leaves the field, but is reduced by one stack when the character takes DMG Battlepass
Prototype Archaic On hit, normal or charged attacks have a 50% chance to deal an additional 240% attack damage to opponents within a small AoE. Can only occur once every 15 seconds Forge via blacksmith

What are the best Genshin Eula artifacts?

We recommend using a full set of Pale Flame artifacts. For those of you who are struggling to pick them up, you can use two items from the Pale Flame set and two from the Bloodstained Chivalry set in the meantime.

Artifact set Effect
Pale Flame Two equipped: Physical damage is increased by 25%
Four equipped: When an Elemental skill hits an enemy, attack is increased by 9% for seven seconds. This can stack up to two times and can be triggered once every 0.3 seconds. Once two stacks are reached, the two-set effect is increased by 100%
Bloodstained Chivalry Two equipped: Physical damage is increased by 25%
Four equipped: Charged attack damage is increased by 50% and stamina cost is decreased to zero for ten seconds after an enemy is killed
Gladiator’s Finale Two equipped: +18% attack
Four equipped: Eula’s normal attack damage is increased by 35%

Alternate artifact set

If you’re still leveling up, and you’re struggling to snag the artifact sets listed above, you can use the following set to tide you over.

Artifact set Effect
Martial Artist Two equipped: Normal attack and charged attack damage increase by 15%
Four equipped: After using an elemental skill, normal attack and charged attack damage is increased by 25% for eight seconds

Artifact stat recommendations

Overall, Eula requires about 140-150% energy recharge if you want to use her burst off cooldown. Aside from that, you need plenty of attack% and crit. In regards to crit rate and crit damage, you should aim for a 1:2 ratio, with her crit rate hitting at least 70% before buffs, and her crit damage hitting at least 150%, or 200% with a crit weapon.

Main stats: 

  • Sands: preferably attack%, energy recharge if necessary
  • Circlet: crit rate/crit damage
  • Goblet: physical damage bonus

Sub-stats: 

  • Energy recharge
  • Crit damage/crit rate
  • Attack%
