Layla is a 4-star Cryo Sword Character in Genshin Impact. She is going to debut in the upcoming 3.2 patch, alongside the Dendro Archon Nahida. Therefore, most players would get her in the process of trying to get the Archon. Overall, Layla is a Cryo shielder/off-field DPS who can offer a bit of utility to Cryo teams.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase how to farm materials for Genshin Impact Layla. By pre-farming her mats, players would be able to use Layla right away after getting her from the gacha.

Which talents should you level on Layla?

Layla is a Cryo shield bot who can deal a bit of off-field Cryo damage in multiple instances. Additionally, she scales based on HP so building artifact on her is rather easy.

Layla's Elemental Skill and Burst activated. She is literally sleeping, with a hanging toy on top of her.

It is rather effortless using her - players just fire off E then Q then switch to other characters. Her E generates a shield and Cryo projectiles while her Q generates Cryo projectiles only. Players should focus on Layla's Skill and Burst - her normal attack can be skipped as she usually stays off-field anyway.

Layla's best artifact and weapon

The best artifact set for Layla is Tenacity Of The Millelith x4. It increases both Layla's HP and shield strength. Its 4-piece bonus triggers when Layla's abilities deal damage off-field, buffing her teammates.

As Layla is a shield bot/off-field support who doesn't deal much damage anyway, her weapon choices are rather simple: Sacrificial Sword, Festering Desire, Favonius Sword. Players can just put one of these on her if they already have another support sword user leveled. These weapons allow Layla to function better as a battery to regenerate energy for her teammates.
