Based on leaks, here's why Kuki Shinobu will be a unique Electro healer in Genshin Impact.

Kuki Shinobu's kit in Genshin Impact leaked

Elemental Skill - Sanctifying Ring

Kuki Shinobu loses a part of her HP after initiating this skill and then deals Electro DMG to nearby opponents. She also creates a Grass Ring of Sanctification that has the following properties:

  • Follows the active character and deals Electro DMG to nearby opponents every 1.5 seconds.
  • Restores HP for the active character based on Kuki Shinobu's max HP.

It is worth noting that the HP loss at the beginning of the skill can bring Kuki Shinobu to a minimum of 20% HP.

Shinobu's skill in Genshin Impact is similar to Qiqi's off-field Elemental skill. After using it, the character can be swapped with the main DPS or the sub-DPS who requires the healing. The duration is 12 seconds and the cooldown is 15 seconds.

From WFP, information on Shinobu's skill. Looks like she's a healer after all!(Exact numbers are still STC)

Elemental Burst - Goei Narukami Kariyama Rite

Shinobu creates a barrier with her Elemental Burst and deals continuous Electro DMG to enemies that are placed within the AoE. The damage is based on Kuki Shinobu's max HP. Also, if her HP is equal to or less than 50%, the shield lasts longer.

The cooldown on the skill is 15 seconds and the Energy Cost is 60.

based on her kit I'd personally stack hp on her bc it's beneficial for both her skill and burst it seems

i saw a leak about kuki shinobu's constellations and they're honestly so good, i'm too conflicted on whether i want yelan or not so idk about going for c6 kuki

Long story short, Kuki Shinobu is a support character in Genshin Impact who can constantly apply Electro and heal the party members based on her max HP. This explains why HP% is her ascension stat. Having said that, players might want to keep her HP below 50% for maximum damage output.
