LATEST - Artifacts


We recommend to Build Kokomi as Sub-DPS, however, she is unique when it comes to Artifacts.

Crit Rate and Crit DMG are useless, instead players should focus on increasing her HP and raw ATK.

So far, the best Emblem Sets are 4 pieces Tenacity of the Millelith or a combination of 2 pieces Tenacity and 2 pieces Heart of Depth.

Additionally, players need Varunda Lazurite, a common crafting material for Hydro Characters, and tons of Mora to level up Kokomi to the highest level.
