Genshin Impact: Layla Build Guide

Build Guide Best Weapons
Team Compositions Constellation Guide

Although it seems like Layla is a typical shielder and sub-DPS in Genshin Impact, she can actually offer additional utilities if players understand her mechanic. For instance, she constantly deals Elemental Skill DMG, which means she can decently maintain 4-Tenacity of the Millelith’s buff. Her ability to deal damage with her Skill also makes some Swords like Key of Khaj-Nisut and Freedom-Sworn some great options.

Layla Build – Best Weapon

Layla offers many supportive utilities for her team, which all scale with her total HP. For that, Layla best weapon in Genshin Impact should enhance her health.

  1. Key of Khaj-Nisut: Other than for its HP stats, Layla can also trigger the weapon’s passive when her Night Stars (from Elemental Skill) deal damage. This allows her to eventually buff the team’s Elemental Mastery count.
  2. Primordial Jade Cutter: In general, Primordial isn’t the best weapon for Layla, but that 20% HP in its passive, she wants it. That’s how important HP is for Layla build in Genshin Impact.
  3. Sacrificial Sword: It’s always good to be able to shield the party twice, so Sacrificial Sword is a good choice for Layla.
  4. Freedom-Sworn: As a support in Genshin Impact, Layla can benefit from wielding Freedom-Sworn. With this weapon, Layla can shield and buff her team’s DMG.
  5. Favonius Sword: Since there are not many swords that buff Layla’s HP, weapons that give her extra utility are her best choices. Favonius falls in this lane since it grants Layla the ability to operate as a minor battery while shielding her team.
  6. Light of Foliar Incision: Light of Foliar Incision is a niche choice for Layla DMG build in Genshin Impact.
  7. Mistsplitter Reforged: Another niche Sword that can buff Layla’s DMG.

Layla Build – Best Artifact

To build Layla in Genshin Impact, it’s important to focus on enhancing her HP since that’s where all her utility comes from.

  1. 4-Tenacity of the Millelith: Tenacity is the best choice for a support Layla build in Genshin Impact. It grants her an HP buff alongside the ability to buff her team’s ATK when her Elemental Skill deals DMG.
  2. 4-Noblesse Oblige: Noblesse is a great option for any support in Genshin Impact. Having Noblesse on Layla will ensure she can buff her team’s DMG every time she casts her burst.
  3. 2-HP +20% + 2-HP +20%: Double 20% HP can boost both Layla’s shield and DMG, but it lacks supportive utilities.
  4. 2-HP +20% + 2-Emblem of Severed Fate: If players didn’t have a good set of Tenacity and still want to go with a support Layla, the 20% HP and 20% Energy Recharge can be a great help for her kit.
  5. 4-Blizzard Strayer: Blizzard is strictly for a DPS Layla build in Genshin Impact. While it’s niche, it’s still effective because of how good Layla’s Cryo application is on her Burst.

Layla Talent Priority In Genshin Impact

As both a shielder and sub-DPS, Layla talent priority in Genshin Impact is Elemental Skill > Elemental Burst.

Layla Talent Level Recommendation

  • Normal Attack: 1
  • Elemental Skill: 10
  • Elemental Burst: 8 to 10

About the author


In love with RPGs like Souls and Elder Scrolls games. I also enjoy RTS like Age of Empires and the ancient Command and Conquer games. Despite all that, I still enjoy light games like Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail. In conclusion, I like to give every single game a fair chance as long as it looks like it was made with passion.
