Noelle is a Geo Claymore user in Genshin Impact. She is one of the first characters players get for free in the game and is very versatile. Her powerful shield and healing can give f2p players a better time in hard content. Additionally, Noelle can also work as a Main DPS with her powerful Burst.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the best Genshin Impact Noelle build guide in 2022, including talents, gears and team comp.

1. Noelle Genshin Impact Overview

Noelle is a maid who faithfully serves the Knights of Favonius. While not yet a knight, she seeks to one day join their rank. She is constantly taking notes on what constitutes knightly speech, knightly conduct, and knightly customs.

  • Requires Constellations to boost her DMG potential.
  • Low Base DMG when not C6.

2. How to use Noelle effectively?

Overall, being a starter, Noelle is one of the easiest-to-use characters in Genshin.

Shield Up and Heal Up

Noelle's shield allows players to heal the whole party, which is useful in prolonged combat. It scales based on her DEF so the tankier she is, the better. Furthermore, her shield can automatically trigger if the active character drops below 30% and she's not on the battlefield. This is a great defensive mechanism that can save squishy characters from sticky situations.

Cook Defensive Food with Noelle

Being a defense oriented-character, Noelle excels at cooking Defense Food. Maid's Knighthood grants a 12% chance of doubling the product when cooking Defense Food. Using them during a fight to boost Noelle's damage and shield.

Dash to Extend Combos

The 4th hit of Noelle's Normal Attack combo will launch enemies out of Noelle's attack range and also has a long recovery animation. Players should dash after the hit connect to cancel the animation and keep the target in range for further combos.

3. Best Genshin Impact Noelle build

Overall, players can build Noelle as a Geo/Hybrid Main DPS or a Shield Support, depending on their constellation level and team.

Noelle Main DPS build

Redhorn Noelle
The Stonethresher (Itto's weapon) is perfect for DPS Noelle.
  • Best Weapon: Redhorn Stonethresher
  • Best Artifact: Gladiator's Finale x4 / Husk of Opulent Dreams x4

Alternate weapons: Serpent Spine, Whiteblind, White Iron Greatsword.

Noelle Support build

Whiteblind Noelle
The Whiteblind is a decent substitution if players don't have the 5 star weapon.
  • Best Weapon: Skyward Pride
  • Best artifact: Maiden Beloved x4

Alternate weapons: Whiteblind, Favonius Greatsword.

Recommended Artifact Substats

At Max Constellation, Noelle's Artifact stats should lean more towards DEF. However, if Noelle's Constellation level is below C6, her ATK and DEF should be balanced.

  • Sands of Eon: DEF% or ATK%
  • Goblet of Eonothem: DEF% or ATK%
  • Circlet of Logos: DEF% or ATK%
  • Substats: DEF% > ATK% > CRIT DMG > CRIT Rate

In Support Build, Noelle should focus on DEF% and Energy Recharge.

4. Noelle Constellations and Talent Priority


Noelle is one of the few 4 star characters who can rival 5 stars at constellation level 6. Outside of that, she has some of the best constellations in the game, with C1, C2 and C4 having great utilities. Overall, her most valuable constellations are C1 and C6.

Noelle C6
Noelle Constellations
  • C1: While Sweeping Time and Breastplate are both in effect, the chance of Breastplate's healing effects activating is increased to 100%.
  • C6: Sweeping Time increases Noelle's ATK by an additional 50% of her DEF. Additionally, every opponent defeated during the skill's duration adds 1s to the duration, up to 10s.

C1 gives Noelle's heal 100% consistency. Players can heal up with every hit, which can regenerate the team back to full in no time at all.

Noelle's C6 gives her Burst a massive damage boost via DEF scaling. It transforms her from an average healer into a very strong self-sustaining Main DPS. The extra duration allows Noelle to continuously use her burst with 100% uptime.


Talent Priority

Overall, Noelle users should max her Elemental Skill first, as it is her main source of healing and utility. Her normal attack and burst can be delayed - players need C6 to transform her into an effective DPS character. Getting to C6 might be a bit slow, but with her being in the permanent pool, it is not impossible.

5. What are the best teams for Noelle?

Overall, Noelle is fairly versatile and can be splashed into many teams. For DPS, it is best to run her alongside a Geo support for the extra Geo resonance.

Noelle + Ningguang team

  • Noelle + Ningguang + Fischl + Bennett

Players can run either Ningguang or Geo MC as a Geo battery to support Noelle. While the Geo MC can generate more particles, Ningguang has higher damage potential and can boost Noelle's damage with her 4th ascension passive.

Ningguang 2
Ningguang is a great Geo support who can generate decent energy.

Fischl is here for off-field support damage and energy generation. Oz can continue to generate energy on his own, with the help of Bennett's overloaded reaction. The last component of this lineup is Bennett, whose main job is healing and boosting damage.

Noelle DPS team (pure Geo)

  • Noelle + Zhongli + Albedo + Gorou

This is a C6 Noelle team comp building around her as the main DPS. Running Zhongli and Albedo as Energy support is recommended to get Noelle's burst uptime as close to 100% as possible. While Noelle can shield up on her own, in hard contents like Spiral Abyss floor 12, an additional shield is required.

Zhongli Genshin
Zhongli is the best shielder in the game.

Zhongli's shield also provides additional Geo and physical resistance on top of Geo resonance. Albedo serves as off-field damage support, providing a large amount of passive damage over a 30 seconds duration. Players don't even have to worry about the best gear on Zhongli and Albedo, since Noelle can keep the team's HP above 90%.

The last slot can be anything, however, Bennett is probably the best support for this team, as his damage boost is invaluable.
