Natasha will ensure that both Seele and Tinguyn are healthy and Fire Trailblazer will provide the shields needed to mitigate damage. If you want, Seele can be replaced by Yanqing, Natasha can be replaced by Bronya and Fire Trailblazer can make way for Gepard.

In this case, both Bronya and Natasha will boost Seele’s damage to abnormal amounts. Unfortunately, you cannot run this team, unless your Fire Trailblazer or Gepard is able to mitigate even the hardest-hitting bosses.
