Molten Rift (Inferno rider):

To unleash Encore’s full potential, you need the Molten Rift Echoes to increase her elemental DMG. To be precise, the two-piece bonus from the set grants the wielder a 10% Fusion DMG bonus. Once you complete the set, the character will also get a 30% damage boost of the same type after unleashing their Resonance Skill.

Make Inferno Rider the primary companion to obtain this Sonata Effect. The entity can also deal consecutive Fusion DMG using its innate ability. You can activate them between combos to get some extra hits on an opponent.

Alternatively, Lingering Tunes (Flautist) can be the next best Echo Skill for Encore in Wuthering Waves.

Cosmic Ripples:

Encore uses the Rectifier weapon, and there are a couple of good options to choose from. The Cosmic Ripples is by far her best pick, as it serves a hefty attack percentage substat.

Additionally, this 5-star weapon’s passive increases Energy Regeneration by 12.8%, something Encore can use to frequently cast her ultimate. She also gains a Basic Attack DMG bonus of 3.2% up to five stacks upon hitting a target with the same ability.

Augment:

Alternatively, you can use the Augment, a 4-star Rectifier that increases the caster’s ATK when they activate Resonance Liberation. It rolls with CRIT Rate which will also help Encore deal consistent damage.

Following are the next best weapons for Encore in Wuthering Waves:

  • Jinzhou Keeper
  • Rectifier of Night

In Wuthering Waves, Encore can be a menace to the opponent when paired with the right team. Below are some of her best compositions, which can tackle every piece of content in the game.

  • Encore+ Verina+ Mortefi
  • Encore+ Baizhi+ Yinlin
  • Encore+ Verina+ Rover

Yinling, in particular, might seem like a radical choice to team with Encore. However, her Outro Skill binds the setup together as it increases the Liberation damage of her allies. She can also be a great sub-DPS, to say the least.

For the best Encore build, stick to the following order while upgrading her abilities, although levelling up every skill will always yield the best result.

  • Resonance Skill> Resonance Liberation> Forte Circuit> Basic Attack> Intro Skill
