After her full ability kit was revealed, Genshin Impact players have collectively dubbed Hydro Archon Furina one of the strongest and most versatile characters ever to grace the game. If you were enamoured by Furina’s flamboyant antics during the Fontaine storyline and plan to pull for her, you’d be pleased to know that her release has the potential to reshape the meta! Find out how to best maximise her power with our Furina build guide.

We will dive into the best weapons, artifact sets, and team compositions to help you reach the Hydro Archon's full potential, so you can support your team and wash away your opponents with ease.

Furina has recieved her first Genshin Impact banner in the much-anticipated Version 4.2 update! To welcome her arrival, feel free to check out our Furina farming guide, along with a comprehensive overview of her full ability kit.

Who is Furina?

Furina is a 5-star Hydro Sword user whose kit revolves around HP modulation. She also has the ability to drain HP from other characters to amplify her damage. It appears that she is best employed as an HP-scaling Sub-DPS and buffer unit who can heal in a pinch.

Previously known as the God of Justice, Furina held the position of Hydro Archon among The Seven, presiding over Fontaine. Her days were often spent either indulging in sweet treats or perched at the highest level of Fontaine's grand court, Opera Epiclese, waiting expectantly for cases to unfold into drama.

After the grand conclusion of the Fontaine Archon Quest Act 5, Furina has now left the Opera Epiclese and wanders the lands of Fontaine.

Best weapons for Furina in Genshin Impact

Furina uses a Sword. Currently, there are a few weapons that work great with her kit. Here is the list of the best Swords for Furina:

Splendor of Tranquil Waters
When the equipping character's current HP increases or decreases, Elemental Skill DMG dealt will be increased by 8% for 6s. Max 3 stacks. This effect can be triggered once every 0.2s. When other party members' current HP increases or decreases, the equipping character's Max HP will be increased by 12% for 6s. Max 2 stacks. This effect can be triggered once every 0.2s, and can be triggered even if the wielder is off-field.
Primordial Jade Cutter
HP increased by 20%. Additionally, provides an ATK Bonus based on 1.2% of the wielder’s Max HP.
Festering Desire
Energy Recharge
Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 16% and Elemental Skill CRIT Rate by 6%.

Furina’s best in-slot weapon is her signature weapon, Splendor of Tranquil Waters. This weapon not only perfectly complements the HP modulation aspect of her kit but also grants a whopping 88% CRIT DMG at level 90.

In terms of F2P options, Festering Desire will be your best choice. It not only empowers her summons but also aids in charging her burst. If you don't have access to the Festering Desire (which is understandable as it's an event-exclusive weapon), you can opt for the Fleuve Cendre Ferryman, Fontaine's fishing weapon. This weapon serves a similar niche and can be a good alternative!

Best artifacts for Furina in Genshin Impact

Next up are artifact sets. Utilising Furina as an off-field DPS or Support is key to dishing out the most damage. These are the best artifacts to bring her power to the max:

Artifact Bonuses
Main Stats
Off-field DPS/Support
Golden Troupe
4-Piece: Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 25%. Additionally when not on the field, Elemental Skill DMG will be further increased by 25%. This effect will be cleared 2s after taking the field.
Sands: HP% - Goblet: Hydro DMG - Circlet: CRIT DMG or CRIT Rate
Off-field DPS/Support (2)
Noblesse Oblige
4-Piece: Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.
Sands: HP% - Goblet: Hydro DMG - Circlet: CRIT DMG or CRIT Rate

Given that most of Furina’s damage output and healing capabilities rely on her HP scaling and Elemental Burst, it is crucial to prioritise stacking as much HP on her as possible. Additionally, having a good amount of Energy Recharge is essential to ensure her Burst ability recharges quickly. As such, the main stats for her artifacts should be as follows:

  • Sands: HP%
  • Goblet: HP%
  • Circlet: CRIT DMG or CRIT Rate

HP, HP%, and Energy Recharge are good as substats.
