Who is Navia in Genshin Impact?
Before we go through Navia’s build, how about going through some of her lore to ensure you know what you’re getting into?
Navia is a playable Ousia-aligned Geo character in Genshin Impact and the president of the Spina di Rosula, which is the equivalent of Fontaine’s detective organization.
Because of how big the organization is, Navia has influence and wealth in spades. This can be seen by the way she dresses and how she talks.
That doesn’t mean she’s just some rich maidan, however, as she’s basically Genshin’s version of Batman in the way she’s fighting crimes in the streets and water of Fontaine.
Let us move on to Navia’s abilities now. As we mentioned before, she uses the claymore to deliver some slow but devastating attacks on enemies.
While her other elemental burst, namely Ceremonial Crystalshot is excellent, her ultimate As the Sunlit Sky’s Singing Salute is what sets her apart from every other character in the game. After all, it sends out a cannonball.
When and How to Get Navia in Genshin Impact
Now that we’ve gone through some of Navia’s lore, we’re sure many of you must be wondering how to acquire this Geo character.
Well, since she isn’t part of the standard character lineup, players can’t get her by rolling in the standard banner. This means the only way to unlock Navia is by rolling in her limited-time banner and getting lucky.
However, it isn’t as though you can roll for her whenever you want because her banner is only running sometimes.
While her banner is running at the time of writing this article as it started on December 20, 2023, it’ll run out on January 9, 2024. This means that if you don’t get your hands on her during this banner then you’ll have to wait for a while.
As for how long you’ll have to wait for her next banner, well, no one can tell. Some characters get their rerun banners relatively quickly, while others have to wait years for them. Fortunately, Navia’s pretty popular with the fans, so you might see her pop up again sooner rather than later.
Best Build for Navia in Genshin Impact
With Navia’s lore and how to acquire her out of the way, it’s time to go through the reason so many of you must be tuning into this article, which is to find out the best build for this character. So, without further ado, here’s the best build for Navia in Genshin Impact.
By far the best weapon to use with Navia is Verdict in Genshin Impact. After all, it’s her signature weapon so it only makes sense for it to be excellent when paired with her, right? The weapon itself increases attack by a set amount, and even more when the Geo-specific crystalization effect occurs.
“Increases ATK by 20%/25%/30%/35%/40%. When characters in your party obtain Elemental Shards from Crystallize reactions, the equipping character will gain 1 Seal, increasing Elemental Skill DMG by 18%/22.5%/27%/31.5%/36%.”
Unfortunately, getting this excellent 5-star weapon is easier said than done. Since it’s a limited-time weapon, you can only acquire it from the banner.
Be sure to check the summoning page in Genshin Impact to see if you’re able to get your hands on this game-changing weapon, and if you can then that’s likely because the original owner of this weapon, Navia, also has a banner running right now.
If you weren’t able to get your hands on Verdict then there’s no need to worry as we have a substitute weapon to use with Navia too.
The Unforged is an excellent Claymore weapon that’s good for shielders, and characters who want an extra boost in their attack stat like Navia does.
When using this weapon, scoring hits on opponents increases ATK by 4% for 8s, and this effect can stack up to 5 times.
Additionally, the attack effect is increased by 100% when the unit attacking has a shield, which means if you can have someone like Zhongli on your team then you’ll be good to go!
Unfortunately, this is also a limited-time 5-star weapon, which means you can only acquire it if you get lucky and the banner for this weapon is going on.
Best Artifacts for Navia in Genshin Impact
With the best weapons out of the way, it’s time to go through the best artifact set to use with Navia.
Marechaussee Hunter Artifact Set
That’s right, this Fontaine-exclusive artifact set is ideal to use with Navia. After all, what’s not to like about it?
While the two-piece advantage increases normal and charged attack damage by 15%, the four-piece one increases the crit rate by 15% every time the user’s current HP increases or decreases. This can even be stacked up to 3 times for maximum efficiency.
Best Teams for Navia in Genshin Impact
The final thing we want to go through is which other characters you should pair Navia up with to best make her abilities shine.
Team #1: Hypercarry
- Team: Navia, Yelan, Xiangling, Bennett
This team specializes in dealing devastating damage to enemies in a short amount of time. Whether it be Navia and her cannonball or Yelan and her ultimate projectiles, single-target enemies will be wiped out easily.
Team #2: Sub-DPS Navia
- Team: Noelle, Navia, Yelan, Furina
If you don’t want your Navia to be the primary DPS in Genshin Impact then worry not, as we have a sub-DPS Navia team too. In this team, Noelle will be doing all of the heavy lifting, and everyone else can easily support her.
This concludes our guide on the ultimate way to build Navia in Genshin Impact. Fortunately, Navia is a relatively easy character to build, and you can use her well even without equipping her with 5-star weapons and artifacts.
However, the difference between a well-built Navia and an average Navia is insane.
