Kuki Shinobu is going to make her debut very soon, during the 2nd phase of Genshin Impact 2.7 update. She is an Electro Sword user, with the ability to heal, apply Electro and damage enemies with her Elemental Skill. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 5 reasons to pull for Kuki Shinobu in Genshin Impact 2.7.

1. Consistent off-field electro applicator

Both Kuki Shinobu's Skill and Burst continuously deal Electro damage to an area. This makes her a great off-field Electro applicator, as you can just fire off her two skills and then switch to your main DPS to fight. This works fairly well in Electro-Charged and Superconduct teams, as players can just trigger the reactions continuously.

From what we have seen about the Intensified (Electro + Dendro) reaction, Kuki Shinobu should be able to support a Dendro DPS. When one element (either dendro or electro) triggers Intensified on a target, the other element gains increased Base Damage against the target for the next 7s.

2. Easy to build

Kuki Shinobu's kit is also scale based on HP, similar to Yelan. This means players can slot all the bad HP% artifacts they don't want to use on her. As both her damage and heal are based on HP, she still gets a bit of mileage out of that.

She also benefits from Elemental Mastery, as one of her talents gives bonus damage and healing to her skill based on EM.

3. Healing option for Electro comp

There are not many healers in Genshin Impact, and using the wrong one can ruin your combo or Elemental Resonance. Currently, no other Electro character except Kuki Shinobu can heal. With her, you can run a taser comp and enjoy the bonus of Electro resonance while having healing available at any time.

She is also a great healer, as her Skill scales on both HP and Elemental Resonance. It also gets boosted by Shinobu's passive if she is under 50% HP.

4. Powerful constellation

As Shinobu is a 4 star, players are likely to get some of her constellations while pulling on the 2.7 banner. While her C1 (much bigger Burst AoE) and C2 (longer Skill duration) are useful, her C4 is probably the best. It works similar to Xingqiu's Burst, but with Electro:

  • When the Normal, Charged, or Plunging Attacks of the character affected by Shinobu's Skill hit opponents, a Thundergrass Mark will land on the opponent's position and deal AoE Electro DMG based on 9.7% of Shinobu's Max HP. This effect can occur once every 5s.

Overall, this ability give your DPS another extra Electro Proc while under Shinobu's skill.

5. Beautiful character design

She is the sidekick of Arataki Itto and Deputy Leader of the Arataki Gang. Shinobu is a young woman of medium build with messy light green hair held up into a messy ponytail with a thick dark reddish-violet rope that matches the color of her eyes and a gold hairpiece.
