Arlan Build and Teams

Arlan is head security of Herta Space Station, introduced quite early in the story when Traiblazer and friends make their way to center command and met injured Arlan. As for overall use in fight, he is like Hu Tao of Genshin Impact, reducing his HP when using skill. The difference is, Arlan don’t have emergency healing kit that can help him in the fight.

Arlan is head of Herta Space Station’s Security Departement. This quiet boy hopes to protect the researchers who value their pursuit of knowledge, and to help them to complete their work.

Best Arlan Build

Arlan is glass cannon lightning dps, strong early game but since his skill consume 15% of max HP on execution many people will skip him and use someone else. IF his HP is below 15% max HP when using his skill, HP will be reduced to 1 point.

The bad news is, he don’t have any kit or skill to restore his HP so he’s kinda risky to use. His DMG scales off ATK and not HP so you can’t stack HP stats to ensure his survivability. If you still insist on putting him in the team, you will need dedicated tank and healer to ensure his safety.

Best Relic Sets and Planar Ornament

Arlan is lightning dps so 4 set Band of Sizzling Thunder from Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Holy Hymn in Cloudford, Xianzhou Luofu will be the the best choice for him.

Best Team?

To use Arlan without him dying too quickly, you need tank with taunt skill and healer. For third member you can go with other dps just in case he bites the dust first. Using that suggestion and applying it to starter team, more or less it will be like this:

Try to put Arlan in the farthest position from tank in case enemy using AoE attack that hit 2-3 character, to minimize chance Arlan getting hit.
