What is the best Genshin Impact Kokomi build?

Genshin Impact’s Kokomi is a unique character, in that she is an all-rounder who can fill all three of the base rolls effectively. Her burst damage makes her a great DPS, her consistent hydro application is great for support, and she has strong heals that can sustain her whole team.

Though her negative crit rate, caused by her passive, does reduce her raw damage capacity, it makes her easier to build as you don’t need to balance her two crit statuses and other damage skills, as you would with other characters.

Genshin Impact Kokomi best weapon

There are different weapon recommendations depending on which role you want your Kokomi to play in battle, but in general Everlasting Moonglow is one of the top picks. For each role below, we’ve listed the top weapon first, followed by some suitable alternates.

Prototype Amber Using an elemental burst regenerates four energy every two seconds for six seconds. All party members will regenerate 4% HP every two seconds for this duration

Genshin Impact Kokomi artifacts

You can equip five artifacts in total. The first option below – Heart of Depth – is recommended as it boosts your all important hydro damage at two pieces, and your normal and charged attack damage after using an elemental skill at four pieces, which will help both your dps and your healing thanks to Kokomi’s passives. However, the alternate options are still viable and offer plenty of good bonuses, and Tenacity of Milelith is particularly handy if you’re using Kokomi as support. Feel free to mix and match pieces you have available in order to suit your playstyle.

Artifact Description
Heart of Depth Two pieces: Hydro damage bonus +15%
Four pieces: After using an elemental skill, your normal attack and charged attack damage is increased by 30% for 15 seconds

Four pieces: When an elemental skill hits an opponent, the attack of all nearby party members in increased by 20% and their shield strength is increased by 30% for three seconds. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5 seconds. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using the artifact is not on the field
