II. Best Tips To Defeat The Knave

Like other Fatui Harbinger bosses, The Knave also has two forms with different attack patterns. Therefore, she is also a dangerous enemy. Let's check out some tips and tactics to fight off this new boss here.

#1. Gain Scarlet Nighttide

You will be inflicted with the Bond of Life status when The Knave hits you with certain attacks. Then, the Bond of Life effect will reduce the healing effect and buff the DMG you take from her attack. Therefore, it's necessary to clear this status.

Besides, after clearing the Bond of Life, you also get the Scarlet Nighttide effect on the follow-up Charged Attack to buff the output damage to The Knave and make her vulnerable to further attacks.

#2. Interrupt Bloodtide Banquet

Bloodtide Banquet is the most dangerous and powerful attack of The Knave that can inflict your character with the effect called Bond of Life. It's necessary to remove the Bond of Life effect to interrupt this ultimate attack by using the Charged Attack.

Then, this boss will become vulnerable for a short time. It's a great chance for you to stack damage and defeat The Knave with powerful Elemental Bursts.

#3. Focus on Healers and Shields

Healers like Kokomi, Baizhu, and Furina help clear the Bond of Life status quickly. Therefore, you should bring at least one healer to the team to defeat this boss safely and efficiently. Besides, using a shield will prevent the boss from dealing additional damage to your character.

#4. Defeat The Knave in Co-Op Mode

Co-operating with other players may help you clear this boss faster when you miss a strong healer and shielder. If you have a pro player to co-op with, you can farm enough materials for your playable Arlecchino character very early.

III. Best Team To Encounter The Knave

You should bring characters with fast Charged Attacks to defeat Knave effectively. Besides, don't forget to bring a healer and a shielder to encounter The Knave Boss. Here are some highly recommended teams to clear this Weekly Boss in Genshin Impact 4.6.

  • Neuvillette, Kazuha, Furina, and Zhongli;
  • Wriothesley, Shenhe, Kokomi, and Zhongli;
  • Raiden Shogun, Nahida, Furina, and Baizhu.

Wriothesley, Raiden, and Neuvillette are great options for the DPS role because they can unleash Charged Attacks quickly to interrupt The Knave's Bloodtide Banquet. If you have better team comps, let's leave your suggestions under this article.
