Best Weapons For Lynette in Genshin Impact Maximize Elemental Mastery

Lynette is a free 4-star Anemo Sword character in Genshin Impact who works best as an off-field support. As such, the weapons that you give Lynette should focus on enabling her to do that job. If you’ve built Anemo Sword support characters such as Kazuha, then you should know how to build Lynette.

The bulk of Lynette’s usability comes from her Swirl support through her Elemental Burst. It creates a box that can taunt, as well as deal Anemo DMG and cause Swirl reactions. Despite it being her bread and butter, it’s fairly expensive, meaning that you will need to balance Elemental Mastery with Energy Recharge to make the most of it. What weapon you choose to put on your Lynette will fully depend on your Artifacts and rolls. It also depends on whether you prioritize using the Burst as often as you can or having a strong Burst that you can use a little less.

Here Are The Best Weapons For Lynette in Genshin Impact:

  • Freedom-Sworn
    Unsurprisingly, Kazuha’s signature sword is a fantastic weapon you can put on Lynette. His kit is very similar to Lynete’s, after all. You can use Freedom-Sworn to raise Lynette’s Elemental Mastery, and it will also raise your party’s ATK and Attack DMG whenever she causes a reaction. This is very good for Lynette because her best parties involve her activating lots of different Elemental Reactions.
  • Iron Sting
    Like other weapons on here, Iron Sting works at improving Lynette’s Burst through her Elemental Mastery. It also increases DMG every time she deals Elemental DMG, which should be everything that she does. It’s comparatively easier to get than some other swords on this list because you can forge it in-game without having to pull for it.
  • Favonius Sword
    The Favonius Sword is a good weapon that works to passively increase Lynette’s Energy Recharge, which will let her use her Burst a lot more. You can probably use the Sacrificial Sword as well if you can’t give her the Favonius Sword for whatever reason. However, the passive ability for Favonius Sword (a chance to restore Energy when she score a Critical hit) is much more useful for her than Sacrificial’s Skill CD reset.
  • Xiphos’ Moonlight
    Xiphos’ Moonlight is a sword that not only looks good on Lynette, but it also helps to raise her Elemental Mastery. It can also help with her Energy Recharge, increasing it for every point of Elemental Mastery she has. If you don’t have the 5-star stat sticks, Xiphos’ Moonlight is probably one of the best swords Lynette can use.
  • Toukabou Shigure
    This weapon was a free reward from the Akitsu Kimodameshi event. This means that it’s either immediately available or forever lost. Toukabou Shigure increases Lynette’s Elemental Mastery but its passive is more useful when she’s on the field. In that sense, this works a lot better as a stat stick to take advantage of its Elemental Mastery bonus effect.

In general, Lynette is a fairly forgiving character to build. This is because there are so many 4-star weapons in Genshin Impact that Lynette can use to improve on her Elemental Burst. She’s not the best Anemo support in the world, but the fact she’s free makes it easy for new players to learn how to maximize damage using Swirl.

Genshin Impact is readily available on the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Lynette is a free character you can get, and she is also permanently available in the gacha.
