Layla Best Build – Shield Support
This layla build prioritize her shield which scales off her HP while try to increase her DMG as much as we can.
Her elemental skill will be the core of her entire kit. Most of her kit scales of her HP (shield DMG absorption and Starlight Slug DMG) so HP will be priority when it comes to stats. Based on all that, here’s weapon and artifacts recommendation for Layla build as shield support:
4 Tenacity of The Millelith
|(2) HP Increased by 20%.
(4) When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field
4 Noblesse Oblige
|(2) Elemental Burst DMG +20%.
(4) Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members’ ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.
4 Blizzard Strayer
|(2) Cryo DMG Bonus +15%.

4 Emblem of Severed Fate
|(2) Energy Recharge +20%.
(4) Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.

Artifact Main Stats & Substats
|HP%/Cryo DMG Bonus%
|HP%/CRIT Rate%/CRIT DMG%
|HP% > Energy Recharge% > CRIT Rate% > CRIT DMG%
Layla Best Team
As shield support, it’s best to use Layla for freeze team. It’s easier to think her as Diona replacement or alternative. It’s all depend on, if you want more DMG and stronger shield go for Layla and if you want more healing you can go for Diona.
Here’s one example of team where Layla can shine, team member can be varies depend on what character you have. For example, you can replace Ayaka with Ganyu, Kazuha with Venti, and Mona with Kokomi, etc. Just default freeze team comps really.
Ascension and Talent Level Up Materials
Talents and Constellations
For skill and talents, we are covering combat talents, passive talents, and all 6 constellations.
|Sword of the Radiant Path (Normal Attack)
|– Normal Attack: Performs up to 3 rapid strikes.
– Charged Attack: Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash 2 rapid sword strikes.
– Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
|Nights of Formal Focus (Elemental Skill)
|Puts forth a shield known as the Curtain of Slumber, dealing AoE Cryo DMG. The Curtain of Slumber’s DMG Absorption is based on Layla’s Max HP and absorbs Cryo DMG with 250% effectiveness.
Night Stars and Shooting Stars
While the Curtain of Slumber is active, it will create 1 Night Star that will be attached to it every 1.5s. When a character protected by this shield uses an Elemental Skill, 2 Night Stars will be created. Night Stars can be created once every 0.3s in this way. A maximum of 4 Night Stars can be accumulated at any one time.
Once the Curtain of Slumber has accumulated 4 Night Stars and there are opponents nearby, these Night Stars will transform into homing Shooting Stars that will be fired off in sequence, dealing Cryo DMG to any opponents hit.
If the Curtain of Slumber’s duration ends or it is destroyed, the Night Stars will disappear. If they are already being fired off as Shooting Stars, these Shooting Stars will last until this wave of shots ends.
New Night Stars cannot be created until the previous wave of Shooting Stars has been fired completely.
|Dream of the Star-Stream Shaker (Elemental Burst)
|Unleashes a Celestial Dreamsphere that constantly fires Starlight Slugs at opponents within its AoE, dealing Cryo DMG.
When a Starlight Slug hits, it will generate 1 Night Star for nearby Curtains of Slumber. Each Curtain of Slumber can gain 1 Night Star this way every 0.5s.
|Like Nascent Light
|While the Curtain of Slumber is active, the Deep Sleep effect will activate each time the Curtain gains a Night Star:
-The Shield Strength of a character under the effect of the Curtain of Slumber increases by 6%.
-This effect can have a maximum of 4 stacks and persists until the Curtain of Slumber disappears.
|Sweet Slumber Undisturbed
