Alhaitham in Genshin Impact is a DPS unit that can take many roles in the game’s combat. The flexibility of Dendro reactions helps Dendro units become a viable choice in Genshin Impact’s meta. Of course, there is no unit that can perform without having the right build, and the same can be said about Alhaitham.

To get the most out of the 5-star Dendro DPS, players must invest in Elemental Mastery, Crit, ATK, and a degree of Energy Recharge to restore Alhaitham’s Burst faster.

Alhaitham Build – Best Weapon


Finding Alhaitham best weapon in Genshin Impact is an important move towards building him to deal the massive DMG he is intended to inflict.

  1. Light of Foliar Incision: While the weapon has low Base ATK, it makes it up for some of the highest Crit value in the game. Additionally, Alhaitham heavily relies on his elemental Skill and Normal attacks, so Light of Foliar Incision is easily Alhaitham’s best weapon in Genshin Impact.
  2. Primordial Jade Cutter: Since Alhaitham doesn’t scale primarily with ATK, he can wield swords that have low Base ATK but great Substat like Primordial Jade Cutter, which grants Alhaitham a whopping 44% Crit Rate.
  3. Mistsplitter Reforged: A 44% Crit DMG and 28% Elemental DMG can be considered a decent buff for Alhaitham since all of his damage is Dendro DMG.
  4. Haran Geppaku Futsu: Greatly enhances Alhaitham’s Normal attacks, which is where most of his damage comes from. Haran Geppaku Futsu also grants Alhaitham a good amount of Crit Rate.
  5. Freedom-Sworn: As a Dendro unit, Alhaitham needs Elemental Mastery to enhance his Elemental Reactions, in addition to him scaling with EM as well. So Freedom-Sworn is a good choice for Alhaitham in Genshin Impact.
  6. Toukabou Shigure: a great F2P choice for Alhaitham since it boosts damage by 32% alongside the extra EM from Substats.
  7. The Black Sword: grant a decent buff to Alhaitham’s Normal attacks with a minor healing effect. Black Sword also possesses Crit Rate as a Substat, which is definitely helpful.
  8. Summit Shaper: A pure ATK% weapon that will further improve Alhaitham’s damage as long as he’s scaling with ATK and shielded. Only consider Summit Shaper if the ones mentioned above weren’t available.
  9. Iron Sting: Iron Sting is a lesser version of Toukabou Shigure, where it grants EM and damage buff to the wielder. If players want to forge this F2P sword for Alhaitham, consider getting the R5 version before giving it to him.
  10. Blackcliff Longsword: Blackcliff is another F2P weapon that can enhance Alhaitham’s Crit DMG by a decent amount. It doesn’t add anything beyond that job, which is not that bad.
  11. Harbinger of Dawn: Harbinger of Dawn rivals 5-star swords in the hands of Alhaitham. The main issue with this weapon, however, players can’t play Alhaitham without a shielder to keep him from falling under 90%, which will lead to losing Harbinger’s passive.

Alhaitham Build – Best Artifact


To build Alhaitham in Genshin Impact, maximizing his Elemental Mastery and Dendro DMG Bonus is a priority since that’s where all his damage comes from.

  1. 4-Gilded Dreams: Alhaitham’s best artifacts in Genshin Impact. Simply because Alhaitham will be able to gather a large amount of EM and ATK% when leading the DPS in certain teams.
  2. 4-Deepwood Memories: If there are no other Dendro units in Alhaitham’s party, it’s recommended to run 4pc of Deepwood Memories to debuff enemies and Alhaitham shines as true DPS.
  3. 2-Deepwood Memories + 2-Emblem of Severed Fate: When the first two choices aren’t available, having 2 Deepwood increases Alhaitham’s Dendro DMG by 15% and 2 Embelem helps him regenerate his Burst faster.
  4. 2-Deepwood Memories + 2-EM +80: If players are doing good with Alhaitham’s Energy Recharge stats, then go for any set that gives 80 EM like Wanderer’s Troupe.

Alhaitham Talent Priority In Genshin Impact


All of his talents should be upgraded fully, but in general, Alhaitham talent priority in Genshin Impact is Elemental Skill > Normal Attack = Elemental Burst.

Alhaitham Talent Level Recommendation

  • Normal Attack: 10
  • Elemental Skill: 10
  • Elemental Burst: 10
