Genshin Impact Kirara Weapons and Artifacts Are Flexible

Kirara is one of those rare characters in Genshin Impact who requires the same Artifacts and weapons no matter how you want to use her. Whether you want to add her to a team as a sub-DPS through her on-field Dendro application, or as a dedicated shielder, she more or less uses the same stuff. This makes Kirara a very flexible character who can change her job at the drop of a hat whenever you need her to.

As a Sword user, your choices are mostly ones that improve her ER or EM. There is the Key of Khaj-Nisut if you have it and don’t have a proper shielder. Kirara’s shield is actually really good compared to another Dendro shielder who came out around her debut. So it’s not a waste to put it on her depending on your situation.

Here are the best swords to put on Kirara in Genshin Impact:

  • Key of Khaj-Nisut: HP main stat; assive increases HP and EM (scales off Max HP)
    As mentioned earlier, the Key of Khaj-Nisut is fantastic for Kirara because of its HP main stat, which will improve her shield. It also boosts her Elemental Mastery, which is what any self-respecting Dendro support needs. The main drawback, of course, is the weapon’s limited availability.
  • Xiphos’ Moonlight: EM main stat; passive boosts EM depending on ER
    EM and ER are both key stats for Kirara, whether she’s a shielder or sub-DPS. Xiphos’ Moonlight’s passive also boosts the party’s ER, which is good for teams that utilize their Burst a lot. A drawback of Xiphos’ Moonlight is that it’s in the gacha, so there’s no guarantee of getting it.
  • Sapwood Blade: ER main stat; passive increases EM after activating a Dendoro Reaction
    This weapon is good for F2P players or people who do not have an available EM/ER sword. Like Xiphos’ Moonlight, it helps to boost your party rather than Kirara alone. In order to obtain this sword, you need to finish the Aranara subquests.

Like other Dendro characters in Genshin Impact, the best Artifacts you can put on Kirara are from the Deepwood Memories set. This is because of the Dendro RES reduction it can impart upon enemies. If you want to really set her up as a shielder, you can also consider Artifacts like Tenacity of the Millelith, or similar Artifacts that boost HP.

Here are the best Artifacts to put on Kirara in Genshin Impact

  • 4-pc Deepwood Memories:
    The 4-pc Deepwood Memories set increases Kirara’s Dendro DMG and decreases the enemies’ Dendro RES. However, it is important to remember that Deepwood Memories’ Dendro RES debuff does not stack. It’s also a very popular set to put on Dendro characters. So if you’re running Kirara with a Dendro character who already has this, then you can put something else on her.
  • 4-pc Tenacity of the Millelith
    The 4-pc Tenacity of the Millelith set increases Kirara’s HP by 20%, as well as provides both an ATK and Shield Strength buff to the party. This will greatly improve Kirara’s shielder potential while increasing the performance of the team as a whole.
  • 4-pc Flower of Paradise Lost:
    The 4-pc Flower of Paradise Lost set increases its user’s EM, as well as increases damage from Dendro Reactions. This set is for those who want to run Kirara more as a sub-DPS, with a focus on her Burst.

Genshin Impact is readily available on the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Kirara is a permanent fixture in the Genshin Impact gacha pool, since she is a 4-star character.
