Raiden Shogun is going to be the Rerun character during the 2.5 update's second phase. If players don't pick her up now, they won't be able to get her again until several months down the line. In this article, we are going to showcase the top 5 reasons players should pull for Raiden Shogun in the 2.5 Rerun banner.

1. Raiden is the perfect battery

Raiden has excellent energy generation. She can serve as the perfect battery for teams that revolve around launching their Elemental Burst.

Emblem of Severed Fate is the best for Raiden without much contest. Players will need four pieces for the full bonus. One might think that the Nobless Oblige can contribute more to the burst, but if Raiden Shogun has at least 200 percent Energy Recharge (which is very common), then this artifact set is the best-in-slot.

2. Great Sub-DPS and Support in one

Raiden is probably a staple to all Elemental Burst team, regenerating energy and boosting other's Burst damage with her skill. However, Raiden's constant application of Electro is a good source of Superconduct, which allows Physical Bursts characters like Eula to shine.

Raiden's Elemental Burst does not work with certain characters like Beidou. Therefore, building a Raiden team is actually a tad bit limited.

3. She makes high-cost Burst characters better

Usually, characters who need a lot of Energy for their Bursts are on the weaker side, as they require a battery to function. Raiden turn this into an advantage, with her Elemental Burst DMG increases every time a party member uses their Elemental Burst, especially when a lot of energy is consumed.

Characters with high-DMG and high-Energy Elemental Bursts (such as Yae Miko or Sara) will benefit from the Raiden Shogun's Energy Recharge, and will in turn strengthen her Elemental Burst.

4. Raiden has great constellations

If players already have Raiden, it might still be worth it to pull for her, as her constellations are excellent. Raiden gets decent power spikes at constellations 2, 4 and 6:

C2 Burst DMG ignores 60% of opponents' DEF. This skill increases your DMG by about x1.44. This is at World Level 8, with you and your enemies at Lv. 90.
C4 Burst gives allies a 30% ATK Bonus for 10s! Excellent for building Raiden Shogun as a Burst-spamming sub-DPS
C6 Burst ATKs reduce allies' Burst cooldown! Let players get even more mileage out of a Burst team with Raiden, which allows her to deal even more damage in a shorter time period.

If you are building a Main DPS Raiden, stopping at C2 is fine. However, a Support Raiden would want the highest constellation possible. With just a little luck on your pull, slowly building her up in multiple reruns is not that impossible.

5. Excellent Electro DPS in Genshin Impact

While Raiden is the very best in the support department, she is no slouch when it comes to dealing damage. With the right build and investments, Raiden can dish out very impressive numbers with her kit and Burst. Getting her weapon, Engulfing Lightning, is probably the highest priority.
