Party members other than the equipping character will provide the equipping character with buffs based on whether their Elemental Type is the same as the latter or not. If their Elemental Types are the same, increase Elemental Mastery by 32. If not, increase the equipping character’s DMG Bonus from their Elemental Type by 10%. The aforementioned effects can have 3 stacks.

Additionally, all nearby party members other than the equipping character will have their Elemental Mastery increased by 40. Multiple such effects from multiple such weapons can stack.

Best Artifact Sets for Nahida

As Nahida's abilities scale based on Elemental Mastery, players need to stack as much EM on her as possible. The best artifact sets for Nahida are the new Sumeru sets Deepwood Memories and Gilded Dreams.

Deepwood is generally considered the best option on Nahida.

Deepwood Memories

  • 2-Piece: Dendro DMG Bonus +15%.
  • 4-Piece: After Elemental Skills or Bursts hit opponents, the targets’ Dendro RES will be decreased by 30% for 8s. This effect can be triggered even if the equipping character is not on the field.

Gilded Dreams

  • 2-Piece: Elemental Mastery +80.
  • 4-Piece: Within 8s of triggering an Elemental Reaction, the character equipping this will obtain buffs based on the Elemental Type of the other party members. ATK is increased by 14% for each party member whose Elemental Type is the same as the equipping character, and Elemental Mastery is increased by 50 for every party member with a different Elemental Type. Each of the aforementioned buffs will count up to 3 characters. This effect can be triggered once every 8s. The character who equips this can still trigger its effects when not on the field.

2. Best Constellation for Nahida

As expected from the Dendro archon, her constellations are fairly powerful. The best ones are C1, C2 and C6, which means stopping at C2 is optimal for all players who have been saving for Nahida.

Nahida Ascension & Talent materials guide
  • C1: Improves the bonuses given by the Shrine of Maya. A bit underwhelming but still useful.
  • C2: Provide good bonus damage for Bloom reactions. If players are going to run Hyperbloom teams, getting C2 is a great idea. It also has a bit of DEF shred, which is really useful in aggravate teams.
  • C6: Provide Nahida with the ability to deal extremely powerful bursts of AoE damage.

3. Best Nahida Team Comps

Overall, Nahida is fairly similar to the previous Dendro characters - she works well with both Bloom and Aggravate team, and even has enough damage to be the main on-field DPS.

Nahida is highly versatile and can support both variants of Dendro teams.

Nahida Bloom team

  • Nahida + Nilou + Dendro Traveler + Kokomi

Nilou is the main DPS of the team, triggering Bloom with the support of Nahida and Dendro Traveler. Kokomi is the main healer of the team who can also serve as a sub DPS when needed. She unlocks Hydro resonance to support Nahida.

Nahida with C2 would benefit this comp greatly, as it allows Nilou's Bountiful cores to deal crit damage. She enables Dendro resonance with the Traveler.

Players can replace Nilou with Ayato. Replacing the secondary Hydro healer with an Electro healer like Dori or Kuki Shinobu is also an option - this turns the lineup into Hyperbloom.

Nahida Aggravate team

  • Cyno + Fischl + Nahida + 1 Support

If players already have an Aggravate team running with their Dendro characters, using Cyno as the main DPS would be a good idea. Fischl would serve as the battery of the team and provide some extra off-field damage.

Nahida would be the main Dendro Enabler. The last slot is fairly flexible - players can run the usual all-rounder supports like Zhongli, Kazuha, Sucrose or Yun Jin. Alternatively, they can also run a Hydro character like Kokomi to trigger Bloom and Hyperbloom.
