Zenless Zone Zero’s Grace Howard is a kind, soft-spoken member of Belobog Heavy Industries – but don’t let her caring nature fool you, she’s extremely intelligent and talented in her work, and she can certainly hold her own on the battlefield. So let’s take a look at ZZZ’s Grace, including her identity, voice actors, and build.

If you want to see how all the Zenless Zone Zero characters size up, be sure to check out our Zenless Zone Zero tier list, then snag some goodies with our Zenless Zone Zero codes and Zenless Zone Zero events, so you can start saving for the next Zenless Zone Zero banner.

Here’s everything you need to know about Zenless Zone Zero’s Grace.

What’s the best Grace build?

Grace is an S-tier character that deals pierce and electric elemental damage. She’s available on the standard banner, and works very well with another pierce agent, and/or another electric agent in the same squad, as it unlocks boosts to her performance.

She performs ranged attacks using a nail gun and grenades, meaning you can evade some attacks by being a little further away. She can also reliably inflict shock on enemies if you choose to build up her anomaly buildup.

What is Grace’s best W-Engine?

Electric characters benefit from anomaly buildup, as it helps to inflict shock on targets. Therefore, we recommend the Electro-Lip Gloss W-Engine for Grace. If you don’t have one of those, however, there are some other very usable options that add to her electric damage and overall attack.

W Engine Effect
Drill Rig – Red Axis Bonus stat: Increases crit rate
Effect: 
When launching an EX special attack, electric damage from basic attacks increases by 45%, lasting ten seconds. This effect can only be triggered once every 15 seconds
Electro-Lip Gloss Bonus stat: Increases attribute mastery
Effect: Deals 40% more attribute anomaly damage
Demara Battery Mark II Bonus stat: Increases attack
Effect: Electric damage increases by 15%. Grace gains 2.7 energy when a dodge counter hits an enemy. This effect can trigger once every five seconds
[Magnetic Storm] Alpha Bonus stat: Increases attribute mastery
Effect: Anomaly buildup increases by 20%
[Reverb] Mark I Bonus stat: Increases attack
Effect: When an attack hits an enemy, the damage dealt is increased with Grace’s distance from the enemy. The further away, the greater the damage, with a minimum of 5% and a maximum of 15%

What are the best disc drives for Grace?

Again, like her W-Engine, it’s a good idea to add to her attribute mastery with a two or four-piece set of Monsoon Funk. A set of Noisy Pop won’t go amiss either as every character can benefit from increased attack power.

Disc drive set Effect
Noisy Pop Two equipped: Increases attack by 10%
Four equipped: Increases damage dealt by basic attacks by 15%
Monsoon Funk Two equipped: Increases attribute mastery by 20
Four equipped: When inflicting attribute anomaly effects on an enemy, attribute mastery increases by 22, stacking up to three times

What are Grace’s talents?

Talents in Zenless Zone Zero are similar to Genshin’s constellations and Honkai Star Rail’s eidolons. That is to say that if you pull more than one copy of a character, you can unlock one of their talents. Here are Grace’s talents.

F – Detonation Trigger Right after the second, third, or fourth move in a basic attack, using a special or EX special attack enhances the skill. Graec throws an additional grenade and increases the damage dealt by each grenade by 200%

What are Grace’s skill enhancement materials?

You can upgrade Grace’s skills using shock chips, which come in basic, advanced, and specialized rarities. You can buy these from the 141 store on Sixth Street for dennies – you’ll see the bangboos outside it.

What are Grace’s promotion materials?

Promoting Grace, which enables you to level her up to higher numbers, requires pierce seals. You can get these from the VR training exercise, and craft them into higher rarities for her later levels.

Who is Zenless Zone Zero’s Grace?

Grace Howard is an employee of Belobog Heavy Industries, working alongside Zenless Zone Zero’s Koleda, Zenless Zone Zero’s Ben, and Zenless Zone Zero’s Anton. She’s new to the second beta, so we don’t know much about her yet, though her entry on the official website and HoyoLab give us an idea of what she’s like as a person.

In her character intro, Wrench describes Grace as “the first person I’ve met nice enough to give me a massage”, while Screw says “She’s genuinely caring. Rather than being tightly wound, I prefer her way of tightening screws just right”. Gear claims that “her intelligent mind is alluring and elegant like a well-engaged gearbox”, and Oil states that she’s “very rational”, and precise.

She appears to be very talented and passionate about her work, with her mind always focused on the inner workings of machines and mechanisms. She also seems to be very soft-spoken and somewhat shy, but we’re sure she won’t let that get in her way when the going gets tough.

Who are Grace’s voice actors?

Grace’s CN voice actor is Xiao Gan, who you may recognize as the voice of Yodo Dono and Joffrey Joyve Yang from Honkai Impact 3rd, Irelia from League of Legends, and many more roles. Grace’s JP voice actor is Haruka Shiraishi, who also plays multiple characters including Rupee and Folkwang in Goddess of Victory: Nikke, and Veina from Another Eden.

We don’t know who Grace’s English voice actor is yet, but we’ll update this guide when we find out more.
