To create a good build, you need to learn about the character, his skills, weaknesses, and strengths as much as possible. If you've already played as Hydro Traveler, you probably know what skills he has. Regardless, it can be difficult to understand the character's weaknesses and strengths, which is why we're going to tell you about them so that you can make further conclusions about your build based on this information:


  • By upgrading Constellations, you unlock more support tools
  • Good Sub-DPS for almost any team


  • DMG scale is relatively low
  • Elements below C2 have a short Burst Duration
  • Elemental Burst cost is pretty high
  • DMG Split Scales from HP and ATK stats
  • Support capability is locked behind the 6th Constellation

Best weapons for Hydro Traveller

In fact, you can choose any weapon you feel comfortable playing with, but for this character, there are a few options that will be best, namely:

  • Primordial Jade Cutter
  • Key of Khaj-Nisut
  • Wolf-Fang
  • Favonius Sword
  • Finale of the Deep

If you have a Primordial Jade Cutter in your arsenal, you are truly lucky. In addition to the bonus effect of a 9.6% Crit Rate, you will also receive a 20% HP increase. This is very important for Sub-DPS characters because their role is irreplaceable and the more health you have, the easier it will be to chase the enemy for longer in battle. In addition to the HP increase, you will also receive an attack bonus, namely 1.2% of your maximum health. It's a great choice, but the alternatives we've provided above will also be a suitable option.

Best artifacts for Hydro Traveller

A well-chosen Artifact is the key to success in any build. Sometimes it can save your life and change the advantage in the battle to your side. Here are the artifacts we recommend choosing:

  • Vourukasha's Glow
  • Gambler
  • Nymph's Dream

As in the example with weapons, we will also tell you about the best option here, and it is Vourukasha's Glow. This artifact, like Primordial Jade Cutter, will also increase your HP by 20%, which is great because now you have 40% more HP. In addition, Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG will be increased by 10%, which partially balances the character, considering its weaknesses. If you take damage, the percentage of the last effect increases to 80 and can accumulate up to five stacks. Thus, you not only get over the weaknesses but also gain a significant advantage.

Best team comps for Hydro Traveller


Of course, you can experiment with creating the best team, but we already know one option that will be the best for this character, namely:

  • Nilou
  • Nahida
  • Hydro Traveler
  • Baizhu / Yaoyao

The main tactic in battle will be using Dendro cores. Nilou and Nahida will focus on creating cores, while one of the selected healers will provide the group with constant regeneration. In this case, you will need to ensure the protection of your team and interfere with the enemy team. With the right grouping strategy, you shouldn't have any problems in battle.
