Archons in Genshin Impact are usually the most powerful character in the region, and Sumeru's Nahida is not the exception to this rule. Pretty much all players are pulling for her, and to build her up as soon as she comes out, farming Nahida's artifacts is a must. Luckily, she should be able to use the two new Dendro sets, which players can just take from their current Dendro characters.

Genshin Impact Nahida
best artifacts for Nahida

This article will focus on two sets: Deepwood Memories and Gilded Dreams. They can both be farmed in the Chasm.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the best artifacts for Nahida in Genshin Impact 3.2, and the best sub-stats for her.

Which is the best substat for Nahida?

Nahida needs between 130% and 160% Energy Recharge. For main stats, you can go for Elemental Mastery sands, Elemental Mastery or Dendro DMG% Goblet, and Elemental Mastery or CRIT Crclet depending on your critical hit/damage ratio. When using her signature weapon or another Elemental Mastery weapon, it's advised to pick EM / DMG% / CRIT for your artifact main stats.

The goal is to get as close to 1.000 EM as possible to fully utilize her passive talent Awakening Elucidated:

  • Each point of Nahida's Elemental Mastery beyond 200 will grant 0.1% Bonus DMG and 0.03% CRIT Rate to Tri-Karma Purification from All Schemes to Know. A maximum of 80% Bonus DMG and 24% CRIT Rate can be granted to Tri-Karma Purification in this manner.

With Nahida having 380 EM from the start (115 from ascension and 265 from the signature weapon), players need +620 EM. While it is possible to get EM from other bonuses, that would not be counted here. Also, to keep things easier, I'm assuming both Flower and Feather have no EM.

Deepwood Memories (4pc set)

Players probably already have this set on their Dendro Traveler. 

With this set I'll get 941 EM + Dendro Buffs and Debuffs:

  • Sands: 187EM;
  • Goblet: 187 EM;
  • Circlet: 187 EM;
  • 2pc Set: +15 % Dendro DMG;
  • 4pc Set: 30% Dendro RES shred.

The Deepwood Memories is designed for on-field Nahida - it can allow her to deal great Dendro damage with support from Hydro or Electro teammates. Players can repeatedly trigger Spread and Bloom for extra Dendro damage.

Players can boost Nahida's EM even further with the Dendro resonance/Sumeru weapons on another character. Sucrose or Kazuha are also good options.

Glided Dreams (4pc set)

Gilded Dreams has the potential to be the best set for Nahida.

With this set, I'm able to get 984 EM only with two 2 EM pieces, thanks to the set bonus, so I can still have a Dendro Bonus Goblet or a Crit DMG Circlet:

  • 2pc Set: 80 EM;
  • 4pc Set: 150 EM (assuming only 1 Dendro in the team);
  • Sand: 187 EM;
  • Goblet or Circlet: 187 EM;
  • (If EM Goblet) Circlet > 62% Crit DMG;
    (If EM Circlet) Goblet > +46% Dendro DMG.

While Deepwood has the better theme for Nahida, I don't think that the +15% Dendro DMG Bonus and 30% Dendro RES are enough to justify having 3 EM pieces. When I can get more EM with only 2 EM pieces, plus 46% Dendro DMG Bonus or 62% Crit DMG.

However, for that to happen, players need to run 4 characters of different elements, which can be pretty tricky. Using Gilded on Nahida and Deepwood on the other character is also an option, as Nahida could definitely use the Dendro RES reduction.

Overall, Gilded Dreams is more suitable for Nahida's off-field support build. This allows Nahida to deal damage with skill, apply a debuff, and let her allies handle the rest.
