With the best Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun build, you can wipe out all of your enemies and live forever.

It’s not just that Raiden Shogun pulls a sword out of her chest when she uses Elemental Burst.

Her polearm and Electro skills are strong enough for an Archon, making her one of the most powerful characters you can have.

Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact

Raiden Shogun is the Electro Archon who rules over Inazuma in Genshin Impact.

She is known for being cold and determined, and she is only interested in life and the well-being of her people.

Raiden Shogun’s story is about making sacrifices and what happens when you have a lot of power.

Raiden Shogun is a great sub-DPS that works well with batteries.

She’s also very versatile, as she can deal burst damage that is sometimes even stronger than your main DPS once she has all of her resolve stacks up.

Normal Attack: Origin

  • Normal Attack: Raiden Shogun unleashes five fast-hitting polearm blows right in front of her.
  • Charged Attack: Raiden Shogun uses a part of her energy bar and fires a strong upward slash.
  • Plunging Attack: Raiden Shogun plunges her polearm into the ground below, hitting all opponents along her path and releasing AoE damage upon impact.

Elemental Skill: Transcendence – Baleful Light

Raiden Shogun launches a single horizontal strike, dealing Electro damage to all close enemies, and giving her friends Eye of the Stormy Judgement.

When characters with this buff hit opponents, the eye will unleash a synchronized attack, dealing further Electro damage.

Elemental Burst: Secret Art – Musou Shinsetsu

Raiden Shogun uses the Musou no Hitotachi and gives AoE Elector DMG, using Musou Isshin in battle for a certain time afterward.

The DMG given by Musou no Hitotachi and Musou Isshin’s hits is based on the number of Shogun Byakugen no Rin’s Resolve stacks eaten when the skill is used.


The best Raiden Shogun builds in Genshin Impact are those that utilize the Emblem of Severed Fate Artifact set, which gives a 20% Energy Recharge boost and improves Ei’s Elemental Burst damage by 25%.
