  • Plunging Attack: Dehya plunges from mid-air to strike the ground, dealing normal AoE damage to all nearby enemies upon impact.

Dehya Elemental Skill

Dehya’s elemental skill is “Molten Inferno”, Dehya creates a “Fiery Sanctum” field while at the same time unleashing a Pyro AoE attack at the casting location.

  • This ability stays active even if you switch out the active character.
  • Feiry Sanctum will unleash a wave of Pyro damage within its range when an enemy takes DMG within the field.
  • Active characters standing in this field have increased knockback resistance, and a portion of the damage they take will be redirected to Dehya over a period of time.
  • Only one Fiery Sanctum can exist, it can be moved to a different location if Dehya recasts this ability before the field expires.

Dehya Elemental Burst

Best Artifacts for Dehya in Genshin Impact

The best Dehya Artifact set should increase her damage potential.

The best Dehya build uses the Crimson Witch of Flames Artifact set, which increases the Genshin Impact DPS’s Pyro damage by +15%. Meanwhile, the four-piece bonus enhances the damage of elemental reactions that use Pyro within them.

Another great alternative is the Gladiator’s finale build. Two pieces will increase Dehya’s ATK by +18%. Four pieces of the set increase the Normal Attack DMG by 35% if the user is using a Sword, Claymore, or Polearm.

ArtifactSet Bonuses
Crimson Witch of FlamesCrimson Witch of Flames2-piece: Healing Bonus +15%4-piece set bonus: When the character equipping this Artifact set heals a character in the party, a Sea-Dyed Foam will appear for three seconds, accumulating the amount of HP recovered from healing (including overflow healing). At the end of duration, the Sea-Dyed Foam will explode, dealing DMG to nearby opponents based on 90% of the accumulated healing.

Best Dehya weapon in Genshin Impact

The best weapon to use for Dehya’s build in Genshin Impact will be the 5-star Claymore Beacon of the Reed Sea coming to the game alongside her. GameWith gave the following weapon description:

“After an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, your ATK will be increased by 20% for 8s. After you take DMG, your ATK will be increased by 20% for 8s. The 2 aforementioned effects can be triggered even when the character is not on the field. Additionally, when not protected by a shield, your character’s Max HP will be increased by 32%.”

Those that wish to unleash the full potential of Dehya will therefore need to spend their wishes on the version 3.5 weapon event wish.

Alternatively, Wolf’s Gravestone can be used in its place. With plenty of attack in its base stats and an ability that only doubles down on it, this deadly Claymore can give her a huge amount of damage.

Dehya Talent Level-Up and Ascension Materials

Dehya’s Talent and Ascension materials can be found in the Sumeru Desert, and while players can wander there from the start of the game we have some bad news. In order to level up and Ascend Dehya, you’ll likely need to fight the Shouki No Kami The Prodigal – which is accessible only after completing the Archon Quest Chapter III: Act V “Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises”.

This means Travelers will need to complete Mondstadt’s, Liuye’s, Inazuma’s, and finally Summeru’s questlines. Meanwhile, Travelers will also need to farm plenty of Sand Grease Pupa, and defeat plenty of Eremites that will drop Rich Red Brocade and other materials.

As Dehya excels at dealing damage, you’ll want to max out her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst first before moving on to her Normal and Charged attacks.

Best Dehya team comp

Yeelan in Genshin ImpactHoYoverse
Yelan is a great fit in Dehya’s ideal team comp.

The best Dehya team comp utilizes Nahida, Kokomi, and Yelan. The basic idea is that Dehya will be the main DPS, Nahida as a Sub-DPS, Kokomi as a healer, and Yelan for Support and Hydro applications.

Yelan and her burst will provide Dehya with Hydro applications during her normal attacks which will trigger elemental reactions often providing a nice boost to the overall DPS. Nahida is there for the Dendro application, which will result in Dendro cores and more damage.

Currently, Dendro is seen as the strongest element with the most flexibility, utility, and potential damage, all depending on how you apply it in your team and in each battle. Moving on we have Kokomi providing even more Hydro applications for elemental reactions with Dehya’s Pyro and Nahida’s Dendro.

Dehya may not exactly be the best damage dealer in Genshin Impact, but this team comp does highlight her effectiveness. And that’s about everything when it comes to teams, weapons, and the best Artifacts for Dehya in Genshin Impact.
