In Genshin Impact, Ningguang is one of the most important figures of Liyue, being the leader of the Liyue Qixing and running the prosperous region behind the scene. Not only that but her wealth is also described as “unsurpassed in all of Teyvat”, which basically speaks volumes about Ningguang’s personal riches.

However, despite the multiple importance, the Tianquan is merely a 4-star character, which means she’s often overlooked when players are seeking a DPS unit. Nevertheless, if players tribute some of their own riches for Ningguang build in Genshin Impact, the Tianquan will prove to be a valuable unit to have.

Ningguang Build – Best Weapon


As a Geo character that only demands 40 Energy, Ningguang doesn’t work well with stats like Elemental Mastery and Energy Recharge. To summarize, here are the best weapons for Ningguang build in Genshin Impact:

  1. Skyward Atlas: A universal Catalyst, perfect for both DPS and sub-DPS Ningguang.
  2. Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds: Can outperform Skyward with Bennett, but its passive is not suitable for sub-DPS.
  3. Kagura’s Verity: Players can decently stack the passive if they have Ningguang’s C2.
  4. Memory of Dust: Great with a shielder like Zhongli, but performs far lower than other 5-star options if there’s Bennett.
  5. Solar Pearl: Battle Pass weapon that increases Crit Rate. Sub-DPS Ningguang should use Normal Attack before Skill and Burst.
  6. The Widsith: Elemental Mastery buff is useless for Ningguang, so Widsith’s performance is somewhat dependent on luck. Nevertheless, the Crit DMG sub-stat is amazing.
  7. Eye of Perception: Not recommended to level up this weapon specifically for Ningguang as it has low compatibility with other Catalyst users.
  8. Dodoco Tales: F2P weapon that boosts ATK and Charged Attack, great for DPS Ningguang.
  9. Wine and Song: Uncommon Catalyst. Like Eye of Perception, it’s not recommended to level up this weapon specifically for Ningguang.
  10. Blackcliff Agate: Great for its Crit DMG sub-stat, but the passive is only good for main DPS Ningguang.
  11. Mappa Mare: Has an awkward Elemental Mastery sub-stat, but a decent F2P option if there’s no other choice.
  12. Hakushin Ring: Great in a team with Electro as it’ll boost the team’s Geo and Electro DMG when Ningguang triggers Crystallized.

Ningguang Build – Best Artifact


As of version 3.6, there’s no artifact set specifically made for Ningguang build in Genshin Impact. Therefore, players should settle with either of these:

  1. 2-Archaic Petra + 2-ATK +18%: Its performance is close to options #2 and #3, so players should choose whichever has the better sub-stat. The ol’ reliable try-and-see-the-damage or damage calculator are great to see which combination works best.
  2. 2-Archaic Petra + 2-Noblesse Oblige: Increases Burst DMG, so may be the best for sub-DPS Ningguang.
  3. 2-ATK +18% + 2-ATK +18%: The easiest combo to obtain and potentially has the best sub-stat.
  4. Desert Pavilion Chronicle: Don’t farm specifically for Ningguang; viable for the main DPS role.

Ningguang Talent Priority In Genshin Impact


As a main DPS, Normal Attack is important to level, but still not as crucial as her ultimate. Therefore, Ningguang talent priority in Genshin Impact is Elemental Burst > Normal Attack > Elemental Skill. Leveling up Elemental Skill is solely for damage purposes, but considering it deals decent numbers, it’s not a bad idea to upgrade it, especially if Ningguang is at C2.

For sub-DPS Ningguang, players can ignore Normal Attack before C6, but Normal Attack must be upgraded at C6. C6 Ningguang automatically creates seven Star Jades after she casts her Burst. Unleashing Ningguang’s Charged Attack will significantly increase Ningguang’s DPS, which means it’s important to level up the talent it scales with.

Ningguang Talent Level Recommendation

  • Normal Attack: 10
  • Elemental Skill: 6 to 10
  • Elemental Burst: 10

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.
