Among the wide array of Cryo supports in Genshin Impact, Layla can be considered one of the best given her ability to both deal damage and effectively shield your party from it. But how should you build her? Now, here’s a Layla support build sure to bring the most out of her in Genshin Impact.

The Best Layla Support Build in Genshin Impact | Best Artifacts, Stats, and Substats

Taking into account the fact that a large part of Layla’s set scales off her overall HP, as well as the fact that her biggest source of damage will lie in her Elemental Burst, the best overall set for her is either a 4-piece Tenacity of the Millelith or a mixed set between Tenacity of the Millelith and Noblesse Oblige/Blizzard Strayer.

You can check out the best main stat for each artifact piece below:

  • Flower of Life: HP%.
  • Plume of Death: ATK%.
  • Sands of Eon: ER / HP%
  • Goblet of Eonothem: Cryo DMG Bonus.
  • Circlet of Logos: Crit Rate.

The Best Weapons for Layla

Given her set, the best overall weapon for Layla is the 5-star Key of Khaj-Nisut. The weapon is perfect for her given its HP% substat as well as its extremely useful buff.

4-star wise, our main picks will be the use of either the Favonius Sword or the Sacrificial Sword. The weapons are our main choices given their ability to offer a great deal of ER and in the case of the Sacrificial Sword, increase Layla’s energy generation capacity.

Just like in Albedo’s cave, using a fully refined Harbinger of Dawn can also work well for Layla, as the 3-star sword will massively increase her CRIT Rate and DMG.

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

  • 5-star: Key of Khaj-Nisut
  • 4-Star: Sacrificial Sword (R3+) / Favonius Sword / Harbinger of Dawn (R5)
  • F2P: Favonius Sword

What Talents Should You Prioritize?

Given Layla’s role and set, we recommend that you level up her Elemental Skill and Burst simultaneously and only focus on her NA if you wish to triple-crown her.

As Layla is a character that shines through her ability to shield your DPS while both enabling Cryo-related reactions and dealing damage, she can be a great addition in teams focused on dealing either Physical, Pure Cryo, or Pyro damage through normal or reverse reactions.
