Mona is a mysterious and unique astrologist who claims to be "Astrologist Mona Megistus” and she has the skills that match her title. In Genshin Impact, while others practicing the craft are all in for the profit, she instead enjoys a prudent life and vows to never use astrology to make money.

As a 5-star hydro character, she has been on the hunt among players for her versatile roles. Our Mona Genshin Impact guide will lead you through her gameplay, best build, ascension materials, and more.

Mona Skills (Talents)

1. Normal Attack: Ripple of Fate

While her normal can deal up to four water splash attacks, Mona's charged attack can consume a specific Stamina amount to deal AoE Hydro DMG post a short time of casting. Meanwhile, Mona's plunging attack can gather the Hydro might as she plunges from mid-air to the ground, destroying all enemies along the path.

2. Elemental Skill: Mirror Reflection of Doom

Mona’s Elemental Skill makes up a delusory Phantom of Fate from combined waterspouts.

4. Passive Talents

  • Come 'n' Get Me, Hag!

Mona Genshin Impact Gameplay

Apart from handling powerful effects, what can Genshin Impact Mona do as a Hydro character?

1. Boost Elemental Reaction Damage

Mona's main focus is the ability to amplify Elemental DMG drastically with her Burst. It can place debuff bubbles on opponents. Triggering Vaporize or Melt using the Hydro explosion will also give off lots of damage.

2. Decoy and Dash

Combining her Elemental Skill and unique dash, players can have quick emergency escapes. The skill would leave a decoy behind that can taunt enemies nearby. Making use of the hold version can teleport her instantly back upon cast.

3. Sprint Across Water

Different from other characters, Genshin Impact Mona can dash across the water surface which makes traversing a lot easier. Though its duration is not longer than that of a normal Dash, it is an ample amount to smoothly cross almost all rivers.

However, Monna cannot begin Dashing in the water, so make sure to start when she is on land. Do not let her run out of stamina as she will drown when that happens.

4. Craft Ascension Materials

Her passive talent can refund 25 percent of the used materials when creating Ascension Materials. This permits players to save time on looking for rare components. Therefore, make sure to choose Mona when you craft these items.

Best Build For Mona

Mona can excel in the role of a support or sub DPS in Genshin Impact. That is why we will include suitable artifacts and weapons for both choices so players can opt for whichever way they like.

1. Best Weapon

If you want to use her as a supporter, Skyward Atlas is the best weapon for Mona. It may amplify the Elemental DMG bonus by 12 percent and seek out opponents close by to attack for 15 seconds. Another option for Mona's best weapon in this case is Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers.

In case you would go for sub DPS, The Widsith should do.

2. Best Artifact Set

Mona’s best build is not complete without the Noblesse Oblige. This artifact set works perfectly for whichever build you select for Mona. You may equip a full set or even only two in case there are not enough of them.

On another hand, Heart of Depth can be the alternative as it will equip a considerable boost to your hydro damage if something is needed in the meantime.

3. Best Team

There are questions regarding whether Mona is one of the Genshin Impact Healers. However, as mentioned above, she is most ideal for the support or sub DPS role.

As a Hydro Catalyst, Mona plays as one of the best options for any Hydro elemental reaction team build. Although the character is damage-oriented, she can provide support by boosting the damage dealt with foes by her Elemental Burst. Here we also have the best Mona Genshin Impact team divided into two categories:

Premium team:

  • Damage/Support: Mona, Ganyu
  • Damage: Diluc
  • Support/Heal: Bennett

Free-to-play Friendly Team:

  • Damage/Support: Mona
  • Damage: Xiangling, Amber
  • Support: Barbara

Briefly, Bennett or Diluc is the most recommended to pair up with Mona so that players can trigger vaporize.
