Building Calcharo in Wuthering Waves should be on everyone's bucket list, as he is one of the best DPS units to step into Solaris-3.

All he needs is some CRIT stats and Electro Damage as attributes to demolish foes with his lightning-fast abilities. Here is a guide further outlining Calcharo’s best Echoes, weapons, team comps, and more.

The Void Thunder Echoes is the best option to build Calcharo, as its two-piece bonus provides a 10% Electro damage boost to the respective character. The Sonata Effect from the complete set further increases the elemental damage by 15% up to two stacks after the wielder releases Heavy Attack or Resonance Skill.

Choose Thundering Mephis as the lead Echo as it rolls with the Void Thunder effect. This creature can also launch rapid assaults of up to six strikes. The final hit boosts the active units, Electro and Liberation DMG.

Alternatively, you can use Lingering Tunes Echoes on Clacharo for the ATK and Outro Skill DMG boost.

Echo stat priorities:

  • Cost 4: CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG
  • Cost 3: Electro DMG
  • Cost 1: ATK%

Autumntrace:

For the best Calcharo build in Wuthering Waves, you will need a weapon that is tailored to increase his combat prowess. Surprisingly enough, his ideal pick is Autumntrace which is a 4-star Broadblade with a CRIT Rate substat. The passive further increases the wielder’s ATK by 4% up to 5 times upon launching a Basic or Heavy ATK, something he will do quite often.

Lustrous Razor:

Alternatively, you can use Lustrous Razor for the Calcharo build. This 5-star blade has an attack percentage in substat and provides Energy Regeneration from passive. It also enhances the Resonance Liberation DMG of the equipping character after they activate their Resonance Skill.

You would want both the Bloodshed Awaken and Revenant Rush passive skills unlocked to improve his Heavy Attack.
