Dehya is the newest character added to Genshin Impact as part of the 3.5 update, and her kit is fairly underwhelming. To make up for her weakness, players need an optimal build with a good weapon.

Therefore, in this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 10 best weapons for Dehya in Genshin Impact 3.5.

1. Beacon of the Reed Sea

Dehya’s signature weapon, and by far her best for personal damage. She can easily gain both stacks from Skill cast and have any teammate take damage. Its only downside is its anti-synergy with shielders.

Bonus Stat: CRIT Rate
Skill Effect: After the character's Elemental Skill hits an opponent, their ATK will be increased by 20% for 8s. After the character takes DMG, their ATK will be increased by 20% for 8s. The 2 aforementioned effects can be triggered even when the character is not on the field. Additionally, when not protected by a shield, the character's Max HP will be increased by 32%.

2. Akuoumaru

As most of Dehya’s damage comes from her Burst, Akuoumaru proves to be an excellent option for on-field Dehya, especially in high-Energy-Cost teams. Scales extremely well with refinements. This is the best 4-star option for Dehya.

Bonus Stat: ATK%
Skill Effect: For every point of the entire party's combined maximum Energy capacity, the Elemental Burst DMG of the character equipping this weapon is increased by 0.12%. A maximum of 40% increased Elemental Burst DMG can be achieved this way.

3. Redhorn Stonethresher

Redhorn Stonethresher passives usually don’t work in Dehya’s favor but the CRIT stats alone are valuable enough to be considered. Redhorn stands out with its 5-star stats alone and can perform comparably to the options above.

Bonus Stat: Crit DMG
DEF is increased by 28%. Normal and Charged Attack DMG is increased by 40% of DEF.

4. Wolf’s Gravestone

Wolf’s Gravestone is an ATK% stat stick with a clunky conditional passive, which Dehya can’t make full use of. It is not as impactful as the other 5 stars because of her split scaling with HP and ATK.

Increases ATK by 20%. On hit, attacks against opponents with less than 30% HP increase all party members' ATK by 40% for 12s. Can only occur once every 30s.

5. Favonius Greatsword

Greatly lowers Dehya’s high Energy requirements as well as generates more Energy for the whole team. The lower Base ATK isn’t as harmful to Dehya compared to other characters since she dual scales with HP.

CRIT hits have a 60% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12s.

6. Skyward Pride

Its ER% substat calls for an ATK% Sands, which can increase Dehya’s damage considerably. Its passive provides a tiny DMG% buff but is otherwise unremarkable.

Increases all DMG by 8%. After using an Elemental Burst, Normal or Charged Attack, on hit, creates a vacuum blade that does 80% of ATK as DMG to opponents along its path. Lasts for 20s or 8 vacuum blades.

7. Luxurious Sea-Lord

An Event weapon with an ATK% substat and a Burst DMG% passive, both of which are useful to Dehya.

Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 12%. When Elemental Burst hits opponents, there is a 100% chance of summoning a huge onrush of tuna that deals 100% ATK as AoE DMG. This effect can occur once every 15s.

8. Mailed Flower / Rainslasher / Makhaira Aquamarine

These weapons can be viable options in Vaporize comps for their EM substats, though they are usually outperformed by others listed above. Mailed Flower grants high Base ATK, while also having ATK% in its passive; Rainslasher gives a substantial DMG Bonus, especially at higher refinements; Makhaira Aquamarine gives a small amount of Flat ATK to Dehya and her party.

9. Serpent Spine / Blackcliff Slasher

Generic crit sticks to boost Dehya's otherwise low damage potential. I would say Blackcliff and Serpents Spine are very similar because whatever you choose, you can make up for the other stat with your circlet. that being said, it all just comes down to how much you want to spend. if you were planning on buying battle pass anyway, then serpents spine is a really great option but if you're reluctant to spend $10, Blackcliff is a really great option as well.

10. Katsuragikiri Nagamasa

Its ER substat along with its passive's Energy refund allows on-field Dehya to build less ER from substats and focus more on offensive stats. Even though it has a higher Base ATK, it is still overall worse than Favonius Greatsword, as it doesn’t produce teamwide Energy.

Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 6%. After Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the character loses 3 Energy but regenerates 3 Energy every 2s for the next 6s. This effect can occur once every 10s. Can be triggered even when the character is not on the field.
