Kirara is the brand new 4-star Dendro sword user who has been added to Genshin Impact alongside the version 3.7 update Her primary function is to act as a shielder and she is exceptionally good at that job when using the best build.

Kirara’s shield will protect you from all forms of incoming damage, especially if it is Dendro in nature. This includes both Dendro cores formed during Bloom reactions or attacks from enemies using the aforementioned element.

She might not be as all-purpose as Zhongli, but she perfectly fits into every Dendro team and is a really good pick-up in the current meta of Genshin Impact. Hence, if you happened to get Kirara while pulling for Yae Miko or Yoimiya, then you have one of the best shielders in the game in your possession.

However, just like every character, you need to build her to make her function in an optimal manner. Hence, here is our guide to the best Kirara build in Genshin Impact covering her Artifacts, weapons, constellations, talents, and more.

Best Artifacts for Kirara in Genshin Impact

Noblesse Oblige is the best artifact for Kirara

Kirara has decent variety when it comes to artifact sets in Genshin Impact. The best-in-slot artifact set for Kirara’s build will be Noblesse Oblige. This artifact set increases her own Elemental Burst DMG and also enhances the ATK of everyone in the party upon using the same.

The second best artifact set for Kirara’s build that you can use will be Deepwood Memories. This artifact set will increase Dendro DMG bonus for Kirara and also applies Dendro DMG RES shred on all enemies hit by the elemental skill or burst of the wearer.

However, the second artifact set is not recommended since you will probably be using Nahida or Dendro Traveler for application as well as resistance shred. In that case, two characters using Deepwood Memories is detrimental since the effects do not stack.

Thus, Kirara is better off with the Noblesse Oblige as it is the perfect support artifact. The set bonus for both these artifact sets are provided below:

Artifacts Set Bonuses

Noblesse Oblige Flower

Noblesse Oblige

2-piece bonus: Elemental Burst DMG +20%, 4-piece bonus: After using an Elemental Burst, all party members gain a 20% ATK buff for 12 seconds.

Best Weapons for Kirara in Genshin Impact

Sacrificial Sword is a must-have weapon for Kirara

Kirara is a support character which means that she benefits from everything that offers Energy Recharge. Hence, the best weapons for Kirara’s build in the game are Sacrificial Sword and Favonius Sword.

Sacrificial sword offers Energy Recharge to Kirara and resets the cooldown of her Elemental skill depending upon the refinement level of the weapon. Favonius sword also offers Energy Recharge, but it generates Elemental Particles for the rest of the party upon CRIT hits.

The stats for both of these weapons have been provided in the table below:

Kirara Best Team Comp in Genshin Impact

Tighnari is a really good team member for Kirara in Genshin Impact

Kirara excels in those teams where she can protect an on-field hyper-carry. Hence, her best team partners in Genshin Impact are Tighnari, Yae Miko, and Nahida. In this team, Kirara will protect all three characters from incoming damage, especially if it is Dendro in nature.

Apart from that, Kirara also functions extremely well in a team with Nilou, Nahida, and Kokomi. This is the exclusive Bloom team where the Dendro cores can deal damage to the allies upon explosion. Kirara’s Dendro shield will ensure that the party does not take too much damage.

Lastly, Kirara will also be good in a team with Alhaitham, Yae Miko, and Nahida. This team performs in the exact same way as Tighnari’s team. However, since Alhaitham is a melee character, you will benefit a lot more from Kirara’s shield in this case.

Hence, that completes our guide for the best Kirara build in Genshin Impact. If you found it informative, then please look into some of our other guides at Dexerto.
