Raiden Shogun is the latest 5 star character from recent banner. Wielding polearm, and obviously Electro vision. This character can act as support and sub dps for the team.

Overview

Raiden Shogun elemental skill, Transcendence: Baleful Omen will unveils a shard of her Euthymia, dealing Electro DMG to nearby opponents, and granting nearby party members the Eye of Stormy Judgement.

You can switch to other character and when the character attack and hit opponents, the Eye will unleash a coordinated attack, dealing AoE Electro DMG at the opponent’s position.

While the damage isn’t so high, this skill have very long duration: 25s and will increase Elemental Burst DMG based on the Energy Cost of the Elemental Burst during the Eye’s duration.

This bonus extremely benefit characters with high Energy Recharge cost like Eula (80 energy cost) and other characters with high energy cost.

When using her elemental burst, Secret Art: Musou Shinsetsu. Raiden Shogun will unleash her tachi and deals AoE Electro DMG. In this state, all her Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks will be infused with Electro DMG. While in this state, she will regenerate Energy for all nearby party members.

Again, her elemental skill and burst synergize well with high energy cost character. Aside from buffing their damage, she will also regenerate their energy.

The DMG dealt by Musou no Hitotachi and Mushou Isshin’s attacks is based on the number of Chakra Desiderata’s Resolve stacks consumed when this skill is used. So it’s best to unleash her elemental burst after using other characters elemental burst first in order to get Chakra Desiderata’s Resolve stack as much as you can (max 60).

So if you want to maximize her elemental burst, the best rotation would be: Use her elemental skill –> switch to other character and use their elemental burst (to gain Chakra Desiderata resolve stack) which already get buffed by her elemental skill –> switch back to Raiden Shogun and use her elemental burst (and regenerating energy for her teammates).

Weapon

5 Star

Engulfing Lightning is Raiden Shogun signature weapon and definitely the best for her. It’s have Energy recharge substats and have passive called Timeless Dream: Eternal Stove with following effects:

ATK increased by 28/35/42/49/56% of Energy Recharge over the base 100%. You can gain a maximum bonus of 80/90/100/110/120% ATK. Gain 30/35/40/45/50% Energy Recharge for 12s after using an Elemental Burst.

The other 5 star polearms also works great for her for obvious reason.

4 Star

The Catch is the polearm which can be obtained in current fishing event. Have passive: Shanty with following effects:

Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 16/20/24/28/32% and Elemental Burst CRIT Rate by 6/7.5/9/10.5/12%.

For other option, I would recommend polearms with Energy Recharge. Though, it’s better to grab The Catch from current event and use it.

Artifacts

4 set Emblem of Severed Fate from Momiji-Dryed Court is the best artifact set for her. 2 set will give +20% more Energy recharge, and 4 set will give her elemental burst increase by 25% of Energy Recharge (max 75%).

Artifact Stats

For Sand, between Energy Recharge% and ATK% it’s depend on your overall stats and your weapon. If you are using weapon with Energy Recharge, go for ATK% and if you are using ATK/CRIT DMG/CRIT Rate weapon go for Energy Recharge%.
