Genshin Impact released a new playable 5-star character, Alhaitham, in Version 3.4. Alhaitham is a Dendro Sword character who is a DPS unit. He is meant to use rotationally, by utilizing his Burst and then his Elemental Skill to dish out Dendro damage by NAs and CAs. There is no set best Artifacts for Alhaitham, as each build and substats depend on various amount of factors depending on how they built him. Here is a complete guide to the best Artifacts Build for Alhaitham in Genshin Impact.
Best Artifacts Build for Alhaitham in Genshin Impact
|4-piece: Deepwood Memories||Sets to built|
Explanation: The 4-piece provides a good amount of Dendro damage bonus to Alhaitham and a valuable resistance shred to Dendro onto enemies. Although Deepwood is highly recommended only when Alhaitham is the only Dendro character in the party. If this set is already on another unit, putting Alhaitham in this set becomes redundant since the 4-piece resistance does not stack.
|2-Pieces: Dendro DMG Bonus +15%|
4-Pieces: After Elemental Skills or Bursts hit opponents, the targets’ Dendro RES will be decreased by 30% for 8s. This effect can be triggered even if the equipping character is not on the field.
|4-piece: Glided Dreams||Sets to built|
Explanation: This 4-piece set is a general best-in-slot set for Alhaitham and is viable if Alhaitham’s team composition has another Dendro unit that can utilize the 4-piece Deepwood Memories set. This set will allow him to utilize and achieve his highest damage ceiling due to the Elemental Mastery (EM) and Attack buff it gives as Alhaitham scales off of EM.
2-Pieces: Increases Elemental Mastery by 80.
4-Pieces: Within 8s of triggering an Elemental Reaction, the character equipping this will obtain buffs based on the Elemental Type of the other party members. ATK is increased by 14% for each party member whose Elemental Type is the same as the equipping character, and Elemental Mastery is increased by 50 for every party member with a different Elemental Type. Each of the aforementioned buffs will count up to 3 characters. This effect can be triggered once every 8s. The character who equips this can still trigger its effects when not on the field.
|2-piece: Deepwood Memories/Emblem of Severed Fate/Flower of Paradise Lost/Gilded Dreams/ Wanderer’s Troupe||Sets to built|
Explanation: If the mentioned 4-piece sets are difficult to farm then a combination of 2-piece sets is the way to go for Alhaitham. 2-piece Sets that provide Elemental Mastery (EM), Dendro DMG Bonus and even Energy Recharge are some of the suggested combinations that players can experiment on. Alhaitham scales off of EM the most and hence does not require any Attack focused Sets. Additionally, Alhaitham is an Energy hungry unit due to high Burst cost hence players can slap ER on him depending on the build.
|2-piece: Deepwood Memories – Dendro DMG Bonus +15%|
Flower of Paradise Lost/Gilded Dreams/ Wanderer’s Troupe – Increases Elemental Mastery by 80.
Emblem of Severed Fate – Energy Recharge +20%
Before we talk about the priority of Artifact stats, the first thing that should be focused on is how much Energy Recharge is sufficient for Alhaitham. As Alhaitham has a high Elemental Burst cost (70 ER Cost), there is a certain threshold that he needs to fill to dish out high damage and optimal team rotations.
Alhaitham’s ER Requirements
|HP||ATK||EM (Generally BiS) or ER % (Only recommended if ER requirements are not met.)||Dendro DMG Bonus||Crit Rate/Crit DMG|
- Alhaitham’s ER is important as his attack rotations involve his Burst. His target Energy Recharge will vary based on certain factors. Still, generally, around 140% ER is good if you use another Dendro unit in the party that can help generate Dendro particles.
- However, if Alhaitham is the only Dendro character in the party he would need around 150-170% ER due to certain factors such as the type of Dendro reaction team comps etc.
For substats prioritize getting enough ER to adjust to high energy needs, afterward look mainly for EM and Crit stats.
