Raiden Shogun , who you will meet by various other names throughout the story of Genshin Impact, is a 5-star character with an Electro vision and reigning Inazuma. His release banner was developer Hoyolab’s most lucrative offer so far and currently his re-run is taking place in version 2.5 of the game. Were you lucky enough to get Raiden Shogun? Then you should take a look at this guide, in which we explain which weapons and artifacts you can equip with the Electro Archon and in which teams Raiden is at its best.


Raiden Shogun can use a powerful katana after activating his ultimate, but mostly takes the field with a polearm. Her signature move is the Engulfing Lightning , which was launched in the game alongside her and which you will always see on her in cutscenes. It’s no huge surprise, then, that this 5-star polearm is also the best option for Raiden. The damage of this naginata increases according to the character’s Energy Recharge. This is a perfect match for Raiden’s talents and the field of use as a DPS battery. It also has an impact on the choice of artifacts.

This is the ranking of the best weapons for Raiden Shogun :

  • Engulfing Lightning (arma a 5 stelle).
  • Staff of Homa (5-star weapon)
  • Primordial Jade Winged-Spear (arma a 5 stelle)
  • Skyward Spine (arma a 5 stelle)
  • The Catch (arma a 4 stelle)
  • Wavebreaker’s Fin (arma a 4 stelle)
  • Deathmatch (4-star weapon)


Choosing the best artifact set for Raiden is pretty straightforward, as this is again talking about equipment that was designed especially for her and launched with her. The Emblem of Severed Fate, which has two pieces, increases the Energy Recharge by 20% . With four pieces, the set increases the damage of the special ability based on the Energy Rechard by up to 75%. Like Engulfing Lightning, this fits perfectly with the character’s drumming style of play.

The clock in the set should boost Attack and Energy Recharge on a percentage basis. With the goblet, you will ideally increase Electro Damage along with the attack stat, both on a percentage basis. The crown should aim to increase the Critical Damage and the Critical Hit Rate. Critical hits and percentage increases in Energy Rechard and Attack are the most important values ​​for the remaining pieces.

Farming a full set of the Emblem of Severed Fate, Nobless Oblige and Gladiator’s Finale are solid options for filling in all the gaps.

Here is the complete ranking of the best artifacts for Raiden Shogun:

  • 4x Emblem of Severed Fate
  • 2x Emblem of Severed Fate e 2x Noblesse Oblige
  • 2x Emblem of Severed Fate e 2x Gladiator’s Finale
  • 2x Noblesse Oblige and 2x Gladiator’s Finale


Raiden Shogun is ideally used as a DPS battery that spends a lot of time in active combat. Here, it does a lot of damage and spawns a lot of elemental particles that charge the team’s ultimate. She is quite flexible in this role and is usable in a wide variety of teams – here are three powerful examples.

National Team: Raiden Shogun, Xiangling, Bennett e Xingqiu

The National Team, so called because it includes members from all currently available regions of Teyvat , is a very walkable composition for free-to-play users, since it requires no constellation on Raiden and provides plenty of powerful off-field attacks, while maintaining Raiden on the field for as long as possible. Also, thanks to Bennett and Xingqiu, the Electro character stays healthy throughout the battle. This team constantly triggers elemental reactions, loads their ultimate quickly, and is overall exceptionally efficient and easy to play – it’s no surprise that the “National” is one of the most popular compositions.

Raiden Hyper Carry: Raiden Shogun, Bennett, Kazuha e Kujou Sara / Yae Miko

This line-up depends a little more on luck to come across these characters. However, if you have them, this team doesn’t require too much of an investment and is therefore rather free-to-play friendly in the long run. Here, too, Raiden respects his role and acts as a PD battery on the field, but his damage skyrockets thanks to the support of the characters in the team. If you add a 5-star weapon to the fray, this composition will destroy any opponent for eternity. Be sure to upgrade Raiden’s ultimate with the highest priority, then his elemental ability and only then basic attacks.

Raiden-Eula: Raiden Shogun, Eula, Rosaria / Diona and Flexi-Spot

Raiden and Eula are an incredible combination, generating the superconducting effect virtually permanently. The Electro Archon also helps the knight gather much needed energy to use for ultimate him. Obviously add a Cryo character like Rosaria or Diona for elemental harmony. Fourth place in this lineup is flexible : Electro characters with off-field effects like Fischl or Yae Miko are a solid option, Anemo characters like Kazuha or Jean are another. In this team, Raiden acts more like traditional drums, which is a supporting role – Eula is the star of the show.

Good partners for Raiden, including Sara and Bennett, are included as 4-star characters in his banner right now. If you need more Primogems to get them, use these codes for Genshin Impact.
