As Tighnari wields the Dendro element, he can manipulate nature, using grass and other earthly elements to his advantage in battle. It pairs well with Pyro users, who can already set grass ablaze using their abilities, and the Hydro element to create a Bloom effect, which deals AoE damage after exploding. Dendro can also be used to create elemental reactions with Electro; check out our Genshin Impact Dendro guide on what each reaction does, as this is very important in understanding how to create the best Genshin Impact Tighnari build.
Tighnari DPS build
Tighnari is a DPS character, but could also be used as sub-DPS, depending on how you build him and how he fits into a Tighnari team composition. We’ve gone for a main DPS build as a lot of Tighnari’s damage comes from Dendro reactions instead of base attack stats.
The best Genshin Impact Tighnari build is:
- Weapon: Hunter’s Path (five-star)
- Artifacts: Deepwood Memories (four-piece)
Hunter’s Path has elemental damage bonus and increases the charged attack damage by a percentage of elemental mastery – with the added bonus of increased critical rate as a secondary stat. As for four-star weapon options, we’ve gone for The Stringless to increase Tighnari’s elemental skill and elemental burst damage, and it also has elemental mastery as a secondary stat.
For artifacts, the newley introduced Deepwood Memories set is, unsurprisingly, a great set for the new Dendro characters. The two-piece gives a 15% increase to Dendro damage, and the four-piece reduces enemy Dendro resistance by a third after using an skill or burst. Key substats to go after are attack percentage increases, elemental mastery, crit rate or crit damage increases, and even additional Dendro damage bonuses.
If you’re running a team with another Dendro user, such as Collei for the Dendro Traveler, you could instead give them the Deepwood Memories set and equip a four-piece four-piece Wanderer’s Troupe instead. The two-piece set provides 80 elemental mastery and the four-piece gives an extra 35% critical attack damage.
