Best Artifacts Builds of Lyney!

Genshin Impact released the Nation of Hydro ‘Fontaine’ and with it a new 5 Star Pyro Bow character named Lyney in Version 4.0. Lyney has been an established character that was first teased in the Travail trailer. He is a unit that deals with Charged Attack shots as his main source of high damage, with his best team surrounding a Mono Pyro-focused comp and build. Lyney’s Artifact sets and stats will vary depending on his role and how you are intending to build him relating while relating to the Team compositions. Here is a complete guide to the best Artifacts Build for Lyney in Genshin Impact.

Best Artifacts Build for Lyney in Genshin Impact

Artifact Sets

4-Piece: Marechaussee HunterSets to built

Explanation: Lyney’s BiS Artifact Set is tailored significantly to his kit. Lyney’s main damage will be coming towards his Charged Attacks where he will deplete his HP for more DMG and also self-heal when HP is running low. As such the 2-piece bonus will help increase his CA DMG by 15% and the 4-piece will increase Lyney’s Crit Rate by 12%/24%/36% depending on the stacks.
2-Piece: Normal and Charged Attack DMG +15%
4-Piece: When current HP increases or decreases, CRIT Rate will be increased by 12% for 5s. Max 3 stacks.
4-Piece: LavawalkerSets to built

Explanation: A 2nd best option from Lyney’s BiS Artifact Set. Although the DMG output is far lowered from his best Set, it is still a good option to equip on if you have not successfully farmed the 4-set Marechaussee Hunter Set yet with good stats. As Lyney is a Mono Pyro Unit, the 4-piece bonus requirement can be met successfully, giving Lyney a 35% DMG boost.
2-Piece: Pyro RES increased by 40%.
4-Piece: Increases DMG against opponents affected by Pyro by 35%.
4-Piece: Retracing BolideSets to built

Explanation: Only viable if you use Lyney with a Shielder in your team comp. Although a 2-piece bonus is useless, Lyney can deal NA and CA DMG with an increased 40% DMG boost.
2-Piece: Increases Shield Strength by 35%.
4-Piece: While protected by a shield, gain an additional 40% Normal and Charged Attack DMG.
4-Piece: Shimenawa’s ReminiscenceSets to built

Explanation: Viable if you produce enough Energy on your Elemental Burst. Just like Yoimiya, Lyney only deals CA shots and his Skill/Burst is secondary in terms of DMG priority. With the 4-piece bonus, he will deplete his Energy Burst to deal an increased 50% DMG.
2-Piece: ATK +18%.
4-Piece: When casting an Elemental Skill, if the character has 15 or more Energy, they lose 15 Energy, and Normal/Charged/Plunging Attack DMG is increased by 50% for 10s. This effect will not trigger again during that duration.
4-Piece: Vermillion HereafterSets to built

Explanation: Both 2-piece and 4-piece help with Lyney’s kit. But Lyney would require a high amount of ER to trigger his Elemental Burst. Since he is a CA-focused unit, it may be tricky to play through the requirements of this bonus set, so it is not entirely recommended to be equipped with him.
2-Piece: ATK +18%.
4-Piece: After using an Elemental Burst, this character will gain the Nascent Light effect, increasing their ATK by 8% for 16s. When the character’s HP decreases, their ATK will further increase by 10%. This further increase can occur this way a maximum of 4 times. This effect can be triggered once every 0.8s. Nascent Light will be dispelled when the character leaves the field. If an Elemental Burst is used again during the duration of Nascent Light, the original Nascent Light will be dispelled.
2-Piece Combinations: Crimson With of Flames/Echoes of an Offering/Gladiator’s Finale/Shimenawa’s ReminiscenceSets to built

Explanation: If you cannot acquire good 4-piece sets and sub-stats then running 2-piece bonuses on him is recommended. Stacking ATK% and Pyro DMG bonuses is good for him.
2-Piece Echoes of an Offering/Gladiator’s Finale/Vermillion Hereafter/Shimenawa’s Reminiscence: ATK +18%

2-Piece Crimsson With of Flames: Pyro DMG Bonus +15%

Some other notable 4-piece set can work but is not entirely recommended if they do not have any other sets mentioned above or they have good sub-stats with their WT set. Other Artifact sets provide better utility and viability overall.

  • 4-piece Wanderer’s Troupe: The 2-piece bonus is entirely useless on Lyney as he does not need Elemental Mastery due to his Mono Pyro kit. The 4-piece bonus will provide a 35% DMG boost for Normal Attack and Charged Attack shots.
  • 4-piece Desert Pavilion Chronicle: A bit arbitrary since the 2-piece bonus only boosts Anemo DMG. But the 4-piece is great on Lyney as he can deal with Charged shots and increase the DMG of said Charged shots by 40% for 15 seconds.

Additionally, at the end goal of your Lyney build you would ultimately aim for the 4-piece Marechaussee Hunter Set. The DMG comparison with this set compared to the other sets is significantly high. You will lose out a stark amount of DMG if you only aim to not use this set and equip something else.

Artifact Stats

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 Lyney. Lyney has a mid-range Elemental Burst cost (60 ER Cost). But ultimately the way that Lyney’s kit is built, he does not require to use his Elemental Burst as much. His main DMG, just like Ganyu and Yoimiya, is from CA shots. As such, you do not have to worry about fulfilling his ER needs.


(Either Goblet works as the DMG diff is minimal in comparison)
Crit Rate/Crit DMG

(More priority on Crit DMG since he ascends with Crit Rate)
  • Just like his ER needs, you do not need to stack Elemental Mastery (EM) on Lyney as he is solely Mono Pyro and generally you would pair him up with other Pyro units.
  • Lyney being paired up with Mono Pyro units and how he generates Energy Particles would ultimiately require for him to keep his ER at 120%-150%.
  • Lyney’s sub-stat priority would be ATK%, Crit Rate and Crit DMG. Ultimately you would want more Crit DMG especially if you have equipped Lyney with his BiS Artifact Set.
