Genshin Impact enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the introduction of Archons partly thanks to their abilities. Venti is known for his potent crowd control, Zhongli for his unyielding shield, Raiden Shogun for her unparalleled battery capabilities, and Nahida for her formidable Dendro application. Now, entering the scene is Furina. The Hydro Archon boasts a skill that not only delivers damage but also seamlessly transitions between offensive and defensive maneuvers.

If you are looking for a detailed guide to maximize her, here's the Furina build that you need.

1. Genshin Impact Furina artifacts

When picking artifacts for Furina, it depends on how you want to play her.

If you're all about dealing damage, go for the Golden Troupe set. This boosts her Elemental Skill Damage, especially for off-field moves like Salon Solitaire.

If you see Furina as more of a support character, choose the Ocean-Hued Clam set. It gives her a Healing Bonus boost and turns some of that healing into DMG.

For a mix of both damage and support, players can choose a combo of two pieces from the Tenacity of the Millelith set and two from Vourukasha’s Glow. Furina can gain a solid 40% boost to her HP, making her versatile for different playstyles.

For the best Furina artifact set, you can follow this:

  • Flower: HP (main stat), HP %, Energy Recharge, Critical Hit Damage, Critical Hit Rate (secondary stats)
  • Plume: Attack (main stat), HP %, Energy Recharge, Critical Hit Damage, Critical Hit Rate (secondary stats)
  • Sands: HP % (main stat), Energy Recharge, Critical Hit Damage, Critical Hit Rate, Elemental Mastery (secondary stats)
  • Goblet: Hydro Damage % or HP % (main stat), Energy Recharge, Critical Hit Damage, Critical Hit Rate, HP % or Elemental Mastery (secondary stats)
  • Circlet: Healing Bonus % or HP % (main stat), Energy Recharge, Critical Hit Damage, Critical Hit Rate, HP % or Elemental Mastery (secondary stats)

2. Furina skills

Furina is a unique character as she can switch Arkhe’s from Ousia to Pneuma, which changes her play style from offensive to healer.

  • Normal Attack – Soloist’s Solicitation: Unleashes four consecutive strikes that deal physical damage. When she performs a charged attack, it switches her Arkhe Alignment from Ousia to Pneuma. By default, Furina's Arkhe Alignment starts as Ousia. Additionally, her normal attack, depending on her Arkhe Alignment, triggers either a Surging Blade or a Spirit Breath Thorn to descend, inflicting Hydro damage.
  • Elemental Skill – Salon Solitaire: Summons "Salon Members" or "Singers of the Streams" based on her Arkhe alignment. Ousia summons Salon Members—Ball Octopus-shaped Gentilhomme Usher, Bubbly Seahorse-shaped Surintendante Chevalmarin, and Armored Crab-shaped Mademoiselle Crabaletta. They consistently attack, dealing Hydro damage. If the character's HP is above 50%, the members consume it to boost their damage by 110/120/130/140%.
  • Elemental Burst – Let the People Rejoice: Inflicts AoE Hydro damage by generating foam linked to her max HP. All party members enter the "Universal Revelry State," where any change in a character's HP earns Furina a "Fanfare Point." Accumulating these points enhances both damage and healing for the entire party until the Fanfare points are depleted.
  • Pneuma-aligned: Furina's Singers of the Stream heal characters based on her max HP. Both Pneuma and Ousia members share one duration, even if Furina changes alignment with her charged attack. Summoning singers with Salon members shares their time limit.

3. Furina Passives

  • Passive 1 – The Sea is My Stage: The CD of Xenochromatic Fontemer Creatures decreases by 30%.
  • Passive 2 – Endless Waltz: If the active character in your party is healed and the healing overflows, Furina starts healing an active character for 2% of their max HP for 4 seconds.
  • Passive 3 – Unheard Confession: For every 1000 HP that Furina has, the Salon Solitaire's Ousia-aligned Elemental Skill damage gets a boost. This boost increases the damage dealt by each member of the Salon Solitaire by 0.7%, and it can go up to a maximum of 28%. Likewise, if you have the Pneuma-aligned creature, it will enhance the healing interval of the Singer of Many Waters by 0.4%. This healing interval boost can go up to a maximum of 16%.

5. Best Genshin Impact Furina teams

Furina is a valuable part of teams in need of off-field Hydro application and sustainability. While she shares similarities with Kokomi, she isn't as focused on healing as the priestess of Watatsumi Island. Which will be Genshin Impact Furina best teams?

Furina, Wriothesley, Shenhe, Kazuha

Wriothesley is a solid choice to lead a Freeze team. Meanwhile, Furina will take on the roles of healer and Hydro applicator. Shenhe and Kazuha enhance Wriothesley's DPS and contribute crowd control to the team dynamic. The specific roles will be:

  • Wriothesley: main DPS
  • Furina: sub-DPS
  • Shenhe: sub-DPS
  • Kazuha: support

Furina, Neuvillette, Fischl/Yae Miko, Kazuha

Neuvillette and Furina form a strong duo, enhancing each other's presence. They boost their maximum HP through Hydro Resonance and synergize with passive mechanics tied to HP changes.

Kazuha contributes crowd control and resistance. Off-field characters like Fischl or Yae Miko bring the Electro element into play. This team's specific roles will be:

  • Neuvillette: main DPS
  • Furina: sub-DPS
  • Fischl/Yae Miko: sub-DPS
  • Kazuha: support

Furina, Hu Tao, Zhongli, Yelan

If Furina and Yelan team up for Hydro Resonance, they can give the entire squad an HP boost.

Zhongli is also a good unit to include in Furina teams. While the Geo Archon offers shields, Hu Tao can reap the benefits while also triggering Vaporize reactions consistently through the off-field Hydro application from Furina and Yelan.

6. Genshin Impact Furina Release Date

Furina, the Hydro Archon, was released on November 8 and will be accessible until November 29. This timeframe also applies to her signature weapon, the Splendor of Tranquil Waters.
