Which Genshin Impact Artifact Sets Work Well for Nahida

The Dendro Archon Nahida is finally playable in Genshin Impact, which means now you might start worrying about equipment like an Artifact set. Fortunately, she is a super easy character to build! There are a lot of sets that work, and you don’t need a big investment to get her ready to explore Teyvat.

The Spire of Solitary Enlightenment in Sumeru is a fantastic Domain to visit for a possible Nahida Artifact set, because both of the primary ones there could work well for her. It all depends on how you want to build her. Not to mention, this is a Domain you unlock just by walking up to it, so there’s no added headache to accessing it. All of the bonuses from the set inside work for her. But for the primary stat for each piece, keeping Dendro damage boosts, Elemental Mastery, and perks that increase her critical hit damage and percentage will all be helpful.

Why is the Gilded Dreams Artifact Set Good for Nahida in Genshin Impact?

I like the Genshin Impact Gilded Dreams Artifact set for Nahida myself. As a catalyst user dealing Dendro damage, you want her Elemental Mastery to be high. Two pieces of the set gives you an 80 point boost. The other part of the set bonus involves Elemental Reactions. Which again, Nahida and Dendro are good at triggering. She’ll get buffs based on the party’s elements every eight seconds after one comes up.

If you pack the party with characters whose element isn’t Dendro, you can set yourself up for a good time due. For each one who isn’t, her Elemental Mastery will increase by 50. So three different elements means a 150 boost. If you do include an extra Dendro person to take advantage of Sprawling Greenery to boost Elemental Mastery based on reactions, then she gets a 14% attack boost for each person who also has Dendro. (At the very least, someone could make their Traveler a Dendro unit to take advantage of that.) So for my team, I paired Nahida with Ayato and Klee, so as to take advantage of the Dendro and Pyro burning reaction and Dendro and Hydro Bloom reactions, as well as the Burgeon effect from all three at once. Kokomi rounds out the group for additional healing.

Why is the Deepwood Memories Artifact Set Good for Nahida in Genshin Impact?

But, if you don’t want to try and build a party for a specific Nahida Artifact set in Genshin Impact, then Deepwood Memories is great. It is all about maximizing her Dendro damage output. Which means you can put her on the field, maybe use her as your main DPS, and reap the rewards. You don’t even need to worry about Elemental Reactions. (Though you should, because Dendro ones are great.)

The two-piece set bonus for Deepwood Memories boosts Dendro damage by 15%. That’s a fantastic start. If you have four pieces equipped and Nahida uses her Elemental Skill or Burst, all enemies hit by it will have decreased Dendro resistance for 30% for a few seconds. Which, if you’re planning to use her as your on-field DPS, can create an endless cycle of fantastic damage.

What if I Want an Artifact Set for Nahida That I Might Already Own?

If you’ve been regularly going through Trounce Domains, odds are a few complete Wanderer’s Troupe sets are already lingering in your inventory. This is completely fine Artifact set for Nahida in Genshin Impact. If you have two pieces, she’ll get an 80 point Elemental Mastery boost. Any player would be happy to get that! Also, Nahida is a catalyst user, and the four-piece set bonus for this one increases a bow or catalyst user’s charged attack damage by 35%. There are better four-piece bonuses to be certain, but it is very serviceable and low effort!

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the Nahida banner is available in-game now.
