Raiden Talents

Below you can see the list of talents that Raiden uses during the fight. Each of them we have described with the main characteristics.

Skill Name

Type

Description

Origin

Normal Attack

Normal Attack: Perform up to 5 consecutive spear strikes.

Charged Attack: Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to perform an upward slash.
Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Transcendence: Baleful Omen

Elemental Skill

The Raiden Shogun unveils a shard of her Euthymia, dealing Electro DMG to nearby opponents, and granting nearby party members the Eye of Stormy Judgment.

Eye of Stormy Judgment: When characters with this buff attack and deal DMG to opponents, the Eye will unleash a coordinated attack, dealing AoE Electro DMG at the opponent's position. Characters who gain the Eye of Stormy Judgment will have their Elemental Burst DMG increased based on the Energy Cost of the Elemental Burst during the Eye's duration. The Eye can initiate one coordinated attack every 0.9s per party. Coordinated attacks generated by characters not controlled by you deal 20% of the normal DMG.

Secret Art: Musou Shinsetsu

Elemental Burst

Gathering truths unnumbered and wishes uncounted, the Raiden Shogun unleashes the Musou no Hitotachi and deals AoE Electro DMG, using Musou Isshin in combat for a certain duration afterward. The DMG dealt by Musou no Hitotachi and Musou Isshin's attacks will be increased based on the number of Chakra Desiderata's Resolve stacks consumed when this skill is used.

Musou Isshin: While in this state, the Raiden Shogun will wield her tachi in battle, while her Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks will be infused with Electro DMG, which cannot be overridden. When such attacks hit opponents, she will regenerate Energy for all nearby party members. Energy can be restored this way once every 1s, and this effect can be triggered 5 times throughout this skill's duration. While in this state, the Raiden Shogun's resistance to interruption is increased, and she is immune to Electro-Charged reaction DMG. While Musou Isshin is active, the Raiden Shogun's Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack DMG will be considered Elemental Burst DMG. The effects of Musou Isshin will be cleared when the Raiden Shogun leaves the field.
Chakra Desiderata: When nearby party members (excluding the Raiden Shogun herself) use their Elemental Bursts, the Raiden Shogun will build up Resolve stacks based on the Energy Cost of these Elemental Bursts.
The maximum number of Resolve stacks is 60. The Resolve gained by Chakra Desiderata will be cleared 300s after the Raiden Shogun leaves the field.

Best Team Compositions for Raiden

When you play Genshin Impact everything depends not only on your main character but also on the composition. You should learn how elements complement each other and build the best team for your main. Below you can see the best team composition for Raiden with Main and Sub DPS characters and support. Also, we have included alternative characters for each role that go well with Raiden too.

Elemental Reactions

Sub DPS

Main DPS

Sub DPS

Support

Superconduct

Swirl

Raiden

Eula

Kazuha

Diona

Alternative Characters

Yoimiya

Venti

Bennett

Raiden or so-called vessel of Baal can provide the team with decent energy with her Elemental burst. In addition, it has consistent Electro Status which gives strong DPS support to characters like Eula because of her high Elemental burst damage. By the way, Eula is the best option for main DPS with Raiden (Baal) as together they deal a lot of damage via Superconduct. So Raiden Shogun is a great sub DPS with burst damage and electro elemental spread. Kazuha will help them to gather enemies before the fight and increase damage from elements. While Diona provides the team with shields and heal. Eula and Diona together activate Cryo Resonance that gives extra Crit Rate.

Good characters for this comp: Tartaglia, Ganyu, Diluc, Klee, Mona, Sucrose, Kaeya, Xingqiu, Traveler (Anemo), Jean, Barbara.
