Best Artifacts and Weapons for Kuki Shinobu
Kuki Shinobu is expected to become the healer that the Mono Electro Team needs. Taking this into consideration, here are the best weapons and artifacts for Kuki Shinobu.
the best artifact set for a support/healing build is 4 pieces of Noblesse Oblige that will benefit the entire team.
Another option is the artifact sets dedicated to healers, Ocean Hued Clam and Maiden Beloved
Artifact Stats: Sands: HP - Goblet: HP - Circlet: Healing Bonus
For a Kuki Shinobu damage build, the 5-star sword Freedom-Sworn looks like the best option. However, we do not recommend investing in this type of build before some testing with the character first.
The best options for a Support and F2P built are the Favonius Sword to generate universal Energy Particles and the Sacrificial Sword to spam Kuki Healing.
