share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

During the Genshin Impact 3.1 Livestream, we received confirmation that the Nilou 5-star Hydro sword character will be featured in one of the four banners coming for the next update.

Dressed with attire from traditional Iranian dancers, Nilou is an advocate for the traditions and arts in Sumeru, a supporter of the Dendro Archon, and she stands against the current values of the Akademiya.

Nilou will wield swords and take advantage of the new Dendro Reactions, making her a strong DPS pick for future content.

With that in mind, we have prepared a pre-farming guide with all the ascension and talent materials needed to be ready for Nilou's big debut


Nilou Release Date

Genshin Impact 3.1 will go live on September 28, 2022, the same day as the second anniversary. However, Nilou will be featured on the banners of the Second Phase.

Based on the previous update, the Nilou banner will be released on October 14, 2022. But, we will know for sure in some days, as Genshin Impact patches had been adjusted for the rest of 2022.

Nilou Farming Guide


Nilou has decided to pursue a different path in the land of wisdom. She loves arts and practices a dance that resembles a Lotus Flower.

In combat, Nilou will carry Hydro vision and use swords as weapons. In addition, Nilou will be a specialist in the Hyberbloom (Dendro + Hydro) reaction.

Nilou Ascension Materials

These are the ascension materials players need for Nilou, one will become available until Genshin Impact 3.1, but we can start farming the rest.

These components are an ascension material dropped by the Aeonblightdrake, a new world boss coming on Genshin Impact 3.1.

Best Weapons for Nilou

As every 5-star feature in a time-limited banner, Nilou will receive a Tailor made weapon called Key of Khay Nisut. The 5-star sword is golden and designed as an Egyptian Weapon just like Cyno's Polearm.

In case you are saving your Primogems for characters, Key of Khay Nisut is a bit niche with HP substats. There are some alternatives.

Freedom Sworn

  • Despite the 5-star sword, Freedom Sworn doesn't have HP stats. The elemental mastery and buff will increase Nilou's damage output. She can get the extra HP in artifacts.

Skyward Blade

  • An option less expensive is the Standard Banner 5-star sword. The Skyward Blade will increase her Crit chances and her Attack Speed.
  • Nilou required to be a lot of time in the field, therefore the fastest she attack the more DMG.

Amenoma Kageuchi

  • For F2P we think the Inazuma Crafting Sword will provide Nilou with an extra attack and the Energy Particles to keep her Elemental Burst ready in every rotation.
