Lisa is a great early 4-star character in Genshin Impact.

Lisa abilities in Genshin Impact

Normal Attack: Lightning Touch

  • Normal Attack: Lisa performs up to 4 lightning attacks that deal Electro damage.
  • Charged Attack: Lisa consumes a certain amount of Stamina to deal Electro damage after a short casting time.
  • Plunging Attack: Lisa plunges towards the ground from mid-air, dealing AoE damage to all opponents in the surrounding area upon impact with the ground.

Lisa’s plunging attack is the stronger of her normal abilities due to the powerful AoE damage it deals. Utilizing this to begin an encounter by stealthily plunging onto a group of enemies below is a strong tactic.

With both her normal and charged attacks being ranged, knocking enemies back by plunging and then dealing a series of ranged attacks is an effective way to deal maximum damage fast.

Elemental Skill: Violet Arc

Lisa’s elemental skill creates a homing Lightning orb that follows an enemy and deals Electro damage on contact. If the skill is held, after an extended casting time Lisa will call down lightning from the heavens that deal Electro damage to all nearby opponents in an AoE attack.

Both skills can apply up to a stack of 3 Conductive status to enemies that can result in even more damage being dealt.

Elemental Burst: Lightning Rose

Lisa’s Elemental Burst unleashes the most devastating Electro attack in her kit. Not only does it deal powerful damage, but it can also launch all surrounding opponents into the air leaving them in a vulnerable state to follow up with further attacks.

The Lightning Rose continuously emits lightning to knock back enemies and deal Electro damage for the entirety of the abilities duration.

Lisa constellations

If you end up with multiple copies of Lisa, she’s got some great constellation buffs to use.

  • Level 1 – Infinite Circuit: Lisa regenerates 2 Energy for every opponent hit while holding Violet Arc.
  • Level 2 – Electromagnetic Field: Holding Violet Arc has the following effects: Increases DEF by 25% / Increases Lisa’s resistance to interruption.
  • Level 3 – Resonant Thunder: Increases the Level of Lightning Rose by 3 / Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Level 4 – Plasma Eruption: Increases the number of lightning bolts released by Lightning Rose by 1-3.
  • Level 5 – Electrocute: Increases the Level of Violet Arc by 3 / Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Level 6 – Pulsating Witch: When Lisa takes the field, she applies 3 stacks of Violet Arc’s Conductive status onto nearby opponents. This effect can only occur once every 5s.

Best Lisa artifacts in Genshin Impact

One of the best ways to utilize artifacts for Lisa is by using them to increase her Electro damage. In this regard, Thundering Fury is a solid choice as it will directly raise all Electro damage dealt by a character.

Given the power and continuous knockback effect of her Elemental Burst, buffing that skill is another solid option. The Noblesse Oblige set will get the job done here, with its two-piece set increasing Element Burst damage by 20%. The four-piece set will also increase her party members’ base attack by 20% for 12 seconds whenever she uses elemental burst.

Best Lisa weapons in Genshin Impact

There are three main weapons that best suit Lisa if you’re looking to maximize her build. The Skyward Atlas can increase elemental damage and give normal attacks the chance of creating a cloud that will seek and attack enemies.

Lost Prayer of the Sacred Winds also buffs elemental damage – increasing attacks by 4% every four seconds during battle, and it can stack up to four times. The only downside is that both of these weapons are 5-star Catalysts that can be difficult to come by, so if you manage to find either of them you’re best to run it.

The Widsith is a 4-star Catalyst that’s easier to obtain and provides various buffs depending on the theme song that plays when it is activated every 30 seconds. The three songs focus on base attack, elemental damage, and Elemental Mastery.

Check out the full list of weapons in the table below:

Lisa Talent Level-Up and Ascension Materials

There are a lot of Slime materials needed for Lisa’s Talent and Ascension level-ups, thankfully Slimes are one of the more common enemies to find in Genshin and you’ll be able to find them throughout most regions in Teyvat. However, the higher level they are, the better materials they’ll drop so you’ll want to tackle plenty of level 60+ slimes to fill your inventory with Slime Concentrate.

Lightning Prisms are the most unique Ascension Material Lisa needs and these can be obtained through paying Resin after defeating the Electro Hypostatsis boss in battle – who can be found on Cape Oath in Mondstadt.

Valberry’s are located in the North of Mondstadt, and Vajrada materials can be farmed from a number of bosses, or earned via the Adventurer’s Guild.

Best Lisa team comp

Xingqiu makes a great sub DPS alongside Lisa.

The best team comp for Lisa is generally one that puts her in the main DPS role where she’s supported by a sub-DPS that she can readily combo with – Xingqiu is perhaps the most solid sub-DPS in all of Genshin so is a perfect choice. Sucrose makes a great support for Lisa thanks to her Elemental Burst that can absorb other elements and Swirl them in a powerful attack which works wonders when paired with Electro and Hydro users.

Zhongli would round out the squad nicely as second support as his abilities can prevent teammates from being staggered – something that Lisa is prone to when there’s Hydro around that can cause her to be damaged by her own Electro attacks.

As Lisa can be vulnerable to attacks, particularly when charging her Elemental Skill, Bennett is another great support option if you’d prefer to have a healer on your team. Pairing Lisa with fellow Electro wielders is also always an effective choice – Beidou is our recommendation as she’s a dangerous DPS with surprising defensive capabilities.

That’s everything you need to know about achieving the best Lisa build in Genshin Impact, including the best weapons and artifacts for her.
