Genshin Impact 4.3 will soon release the Phase II banners, with officials featuring rerun characters and their signature weapons. The Electro Archon, Raiden Shogun, happens to be one of the characters that will be having her fourth rerun in Phase II.

The 5-star Electro character is an excellent unit that can take on multiple roles in the teams depending on the player's preference and playstyle. Her abilities allow her to act as a battery and regenerate energy for the entire party while also dealing massive AoE Electro damage to the enemies.

Furthermore, the release of the Dendro element and its reactions with Electro has made Raiden Shogun a must-pull unit, opening up many new build possibilities for her as an off-field unit. Here's everything that players need to know about the best Raiden Shogun build for Dendro reaction teams in Genshin Impact.


Genshin Impact: Best Raiden Shogun build for Dendro reaction teams

Generally, Genshin Impact players use Raiden Shogun as an on-field DPS that can recharge energy for the whole party using her abilities. For this build, it's generally recommended to stack tons of Energy Recharge (ER%) on her since most of her damage multipliers are based on it.

With the arrival of Dendro and its new reactions, Raiden Shogun has become far more flexible with brand-new builds and playstyles cropping up. The Dendro element has made Elemental Mastery a valuable stat for this character as well due to her ability to trigger Aggravate and Hyperbloom reactions.

If Raiden Shogun is constantly triggering multiple reactions in a Dendro team composition, focusing on an Elemental Mastery build will be more valuable. This way, Genshin Impact players can dish out more damage with just her Elemental Skill. Additionally, these reactions allow Raiden Shogun to comfortably take on the role of an off-field Electro enabler.

Here are the best artifacts to use on Raiden Shogun when building her for Dendro team compositions:

  • Emblem of Severed Fate (EoSF)
  • Gilded Dreams
  • Wanderer's Troupe

The EoSF is the best-in-slot artifact set for an on-field Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact. Its 4-piece set bonus effect provides everything that she requires: Energy Recharge (ER%) and converting excess ER% to Elemental Burst DMG. Thanks to Raiden Shogun's ascension passive, she can build tons of ER to increase her own damage.

When building her as an off-field enabler, Raiden Shogun can take advantage of the 4-piece Gilded Dreams or a 2-piece combo between Gilded Dreams and Wanderer's Troupe. This way, players can boost her individual damage while she triggers reactions in Genshin Impact.
