Jade is the best-suited character for this Planar ornament set since her kit allows her to launch FUA (Follow-Up Attacks). As she requires CRIT stats along with SPD, Duran, Dynasty of Running Wolves set is her BiS (Best in Slot).

Apart from Jade, every character that can launch follow-up attacks can utilize this set’s potential to its full extent such as Topaz & Numby, Dr. Ratio, Himeko, Herta, and Aventurine. Since all of the aforementioned characters mainly utilize follow-up attacks to deal damage, all of them can greatly benefit from this planar ornament set.

Keep in mind that you will have to build Aventurine as a DPS unit to utilize this Planar Ornament set to its maximum potential. Additionally, this ornament set will perform best when at least two FUA units are in a team.
