Kirara, a 4-star Dendro Sword user in Genshin Impact, specializes in HP-based shields. To optimize her support role, it is recommended to prioritize maximizing her HP. Her third Passive and C1 abilities also provide incentives for increasing this stat. Additionally, enhancing Elemental Mastery and Energy Recharge can be beneficial. Elemental Mastery is particularly advantageous for Dendro characters in general, while Energy Recharge enables more frequent use of Kirara's wide Dendro Elemental Burst.

Although DPS builds are possible, Kirara's abilities are most effective when used to support her team. Therefore, this guide will focus on enhancing her shielding capabilities, making her a valuable choice for certain teams compared to other options. Notably, she is the first Dendro character to possess a shield through her Elemental Skill, and it is advisable to capitalize on this advantage.

Best Artifacts

Kirara in Genshin Impact has several recommended artifact sets to consider:

  • A combination of 2-piece Tenacity of the Millelith and 2-piece Vourukasha's Glow: This provides a significant +40% HP boost, enhancing the strength of her shields.
  • A full 4-piece set of Tenacity of the Millelith: This grants a +20% HP bonus, as well as a 20% ATK increase and a 30% boost to Shield Strength when using an Elemental Skill.
  • A full 4-piece set of Deepwood Memories: This set is useful for reducing enemies' Dendro RES, allowing your primary Dendro DPS to deal more damage.

To obtain these artifacts, here's a reminder of where they can be found:

  • Tenacity of the Millelith: Obtainable from the Ridge Watch Domain.
  • Vourukasha's Glow: Acquired from the Molten Iron Fortress Domain.
  • Deepwood Memories: Obtained from the Spire of Solitary Enlightenment Domain.

Ideally, aim for the 5-star variants of these artifacts, as they offer superior benefits compared to their 4-star counterparts.

Artifact sub stats

Here are the main artifact stats to focus on:

  • Sands of Eon: HP%
  • Goblet of Eonothem: HP%
  • Circlet of Logos: HP%

Secondary stats of note are:

  • HP%
  • Elemental Mastery
  • Energy Recharge
  • Flat HP
  • CRIT Rate

A lot of RNG is involved in getting the correct stats, so at least try to obtain most of the ideal stats highlighted above.

Best weapon for Kirara in Genshin Impact

  • Kirara in Genshin Impact benefits from weapons that increase her HP or allow her to use her Elemental Skill more frequently. Here are some examples:
  • Key Of Khaj-Nisut: This sword provides a significant HP boost, making it the top choice for strengthening her shields. The Elemental Mastery bonus is also advantageous for her.
  • Primordial Jade Cutter: While it doesn't offer as substantial an HP increase as the Key of Khaj-Nisut, it still provides a decent HP boost. The additional bonuses of CRIT Rate and ATK can slightly enhance her DPS in a support build.
  • Sacrificial Sword: This weapon is more accessible for free-to-play players. Its Energy Recharge stat is beneficial, and the ability to trigger her shield more frequently with its effect is a significant advantage.

In the future, any swords that provide an HP buff will be valuable for this character. Until then, the aforementioned weapons are the most effective choices for maximizing the strength of Kirara's shields in Genshin Impact.

Ascension Materials

To Ascend Kirara in Genshin Impact, players need to obtain Dendro crystals. There are various methods to collect these crystals, but the most effective way is by defeating bosses and completing Daily Commissions. Players can also convert other elemental gems into Dendro crystals, but this comes with an additional cost.

In addition to Dendro crystals, Kirara requires other specific resources for each Ascension. Here is a list of the required resources:

  1. Spectral resources: Spectral Husks, Hearts, and Nucleuses are dropped by Specters, which can be found in the Inazuma region.
  2. Amakumo Fruits: These limited resources can only be found on Inazuma's Seirai Island.
  3. Evergloom Rings: These are dropped by the Iniquitous Baptist, a boss introduced in Patch 3.6. It is located west of the recently released Sumeru area, Gavireh Lajavard.

Talent level-up Materials

Enhancing a character's stats and abilities goes beyond simply leveling them up in Genshin Impact. Talents are an additional way to improve characters, providing various bonuses across different aspects. However, similar to Ascensions, Talents require specific materials for enhancement.

Typically, talents require two types of resources for leveling up. One type can be obtained by completing Domains, while the other is acquired by defeating ordinary monsters in the world of Teyvat.

Here are the materials needed to level up Kirara's talents:

  1. Spectral resources: Spectral Husks, Hearts, and Nucleuses are dropped by Specters, primarily found in the Inazuma region.
  2. Transcience Talent Books: These include Teaching, Guide, and Philosophy Books of Transcience. They can be obtained from the Domain of the Violet Court in Inazuma.
  3. Everamber: This is a drop from Apep, the weekly boss released in Sumeru, the most recent area introduced in the game.
