Dehya is here fans could not be more excited, as although her banner can be considered one of the most divisive to ever be released in Genshin Impact, she can still be a great unit if built right. But how should you build her? Now, in order to answer that and more, here’s the best Dehya DPS build in Genshin Impact.

The Best Dehya DPS Build in Genshin Impact | Best Artifacts, Stats, and Substats

Taking into account her set and her role as a Sub-DPS, the best artifact sets for a Dehya will be either a 4-piece Crimson Witch of Flames or a 4-piece Emblem of Severed Fate, depending on whether you want to focus on empowering her whole set or maximizing her Burst.

Main stat-wise, we recommend that you focus on Pyro DMG Bonus, Crit Rate/DMG, and Energy Recharge. For those who plan on getting Dehya’s first constellation, using an HP Sands of Eon can also work well. Given her ER problem, we recommend that you get the stat to at least 170% in order to use her as part of quick rotations.

To recap, you can check out the best main stats for each artifact piece below:

  • Flower of Life: HP%
  • Plume of Death: ATK%
  • Sands of Eon: ER% / HP% (Only after unlocking her first constellation)
  • Goblet of Eonothem: Pyro DMG Bonus
  • Circlet of Logos: Crit Rate / DMG (Depending on your overall Crit Rate and weapon).

When talking about substats, we recommend that you focus on Crit Rate/DMG, ER, and HP% (at C1).

The Best Weapons for DPS Dehya

As usual, the best weapon for Dehya will be her featured weapon, Beacon of the Reed Sea, as the weapon will provide her with a large amount of CRIT Rate, as well as a huge ATK boost through both its passive and base attack value.

If the new 5-star Claymore is not an option for you, we recommend the use of the Wolf’s Gravestone, which is considered the game’s best overall, thanks to its massive attack boost and high base stats. 4-star wise, we recommend the use of weapons featuring a CRIT substat, like Serpent Spine and the Blackcliff Slasher. Using the upcoming Mailed Flower Claymore at full refinement can also work well.

To recap, you can check out the best weapons for Dehya below, as well as a great F2P option:

  • 5-star: Beacon of the Reed Sea / Wolf’s Gravestone
  • 4-Star: Serpent Spine / Blackcliff Slasher
  • F2P: Mailed Flower (R5)

What Talents Should You Prioritize?

Given Dehya’s main role as a Burst DPS set to take on the field only to perform her Elemental Skill and then her Burst, we recommend that you level her Burst first and then focus on her Elemental Skill.

The Best Dehya DPS Build in Genshin Impact | The Best Team Compositions for DPS Dehya

As a Pyro DPS, Dehya will benefit the most from Hydro and Cryo DPS’/Sub-DPS capable of also providing constant elemental application, such as Ayato, Ganyu, and Rosaria. Healers such as Kokomi are also a perfect fit for teams featuring her.

With that said, here are a few team compositions sure to bring the most out of Dehya:

  • Kamisato Ayato + Bennett + Yelan/Sangonimya Kokomi/Xingqiu + Dehya
  • Ganyu + Diona + Sangonimiya Kokomi + Dehya
  • Tartaglia + Bennett + Xingqiu/Yelan + Dehya
