Genshin Impact introduced Kaveh, a 4 Star Dendro Claymore character now available in Version 3.6 and will be later added in the Standard Banner after the Version ends. Kaveh’s kit revolves around Dendro-related Elemental reactions, particularly in Bloom reactions. As such, Kaveh’s build will entirely depend on how you want to play him out as in certain team compositions. He has a variety of weapons options to choose from that are viable to use with many being very F2P friendly. In this Genshin Impact guide, we will be focusing on the best weapons for Kaveh to use in the game.
Best Weapons for Kaveh in Genshin Impact
Beacon of the Reed Sea
|Base ATK: 608 CRIT Rate: 33.1%
|After the character’s Elemental Skill hits an opponent, their ATK will be increased by 20% for 8s. After the character takes DMG, their ATK will be increased by 20% for 8s. The 2 aforementioned effects can be triggered even when the character is not on the field. Additionally, when not protected by a shield, the character’s Max HP will be increased by 32%.
|The Passive is tailored for a DPS Kaveh where he can dish out the most damage with the claymore. The Split scaling of both ATK and HP unfortunately cannot be utilized by Kaveh. Additionally, it has a crit substat and high base atk which is suitable for him.
|Base ATK: 608 ATK: 49.6%
|After triggering Burning, Quicken, Aggravate, Spread, Bloom, Hyperbloom, or Burgeon, a Leaf of Consciousness will be created around the character for a maximum of 10s. When picked up, the Leaf will grant the character 60 Elemental Mastery for 12s. Only 1 Leaf can be generated this way every 20s. This effect can still be triggered if the character is not on the field. The Leaf of Consciousness effect cannot stack.
|A great weapon for DPS Kaveh for the high ATK boost. Although there are other better and more F2P options for Kaveh that can reach his full potential.
|Base ATK: 542 CRIT DMG: 88.2%
|DEF is increased by 28%. Normal and Charged Attack DMG is increased by 40% of DEF.
|Passive is useless on Kaveh as he doesn’t scale from DEF, but the weapon is still viable due to the substats.
|Base ATK 565 Elemental Mastery 110
|Within 8s after the character’s Elemental Skill hits an opponent or the character triggers an Elemental Reaction, their ATK and Elemental Mastery will be increased by 12% and 48 respectively.
|Kaveh’s BiS (Best-in-Slot) Weapon. The weapon is of limited edition and was only available if travelers have participated and completely played Version 3.5 “Windblume’s Breath”. The weapon is tailor-made for him as he is a Dendro character which entails him utilizing any Elemental Mastery bonus. Additionally, the Passive will further increase Kaveh’s EM and ATK.
|Base ATK 565 Energy Recharge 30.6%
|The weapon gives EM and a damage bonus to enemies affected by Hydro or Electro. The damage bonus on Electro-affected targets synergizes well in Quicken teams where you can maintain an Electro Auro onto the enemies.
|The craftable 4 –star weapon is a great alternative option to choose from in terms of F2P friendly for Kaveh. The Energy Recharge sub-stat can help with Kaveh’s high Energy Cost needs. Additionally, the Passive will provide an EM buff to Kaveh if the leaf is picked up.
|Base ATK 510 Energy Recharge 45.9%
|Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 6%. After Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the character loses 3 Energy but regenerates 3 Energy every 2s for the next 6s. This effect can occur once every 10s. Can be triggered even when the character is not on the field.
|The Inazuma 4 Star Craftable weapon gives a lot of ER and has a Passive where it Re-generates ER for your Kaveh. This weapon is suitable if you plan on using Kaveh as DPS and struggle to meet his ER needs.
|Base ATK 510 Elemental Mastery 165
|Increases DMG against opponents affected by Hydro or Electro by 20%.
|The favonius Greatsword is a great ER weapon to help with Kaveh’s Energy needs. The ER sub-stat is high and the Passive generates a great deal of Energy particles for Kaveh to use.
|Base ATK 454 Energy Recharge 61.3%
|CRIT Hits have a 60% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12s.
|After defeating an opponent, ATK is increased by 12% for the 30s. This effect has a maximum of 3 stacks, and the duration of each stack is independent of the others.
|Base ATK 565 Energy Recharge 30.6%
|After damaging an opponent with an Elemental Skill, the skill has a 40% chance to end its own CD. Can only occur once every 30s.
|The weapon provides a great deal of ER to Kaveh in addition to its Passive enabling him to use his Elemental Skill often. Frequent use of his Elemental Skill usage will enable him to generate more Energy particles for Kaveh.
|Base ATK: 510 CRIT DMG: 55.1%
|Suited for team comp where Kaveh enables Elemental Reactions in the team comp such as Dendro-related reactions. The EM will help boost his reaction DMG. Additionally, the passive will increase his ATK and buff other teammates.
|Somewhat F2P-friendly option for DPS Kaveh build. The Crit substat is effective on him although the passive is underwhelming.
|Base ATK: 510 Elemental Mastery: 165
|The following effect will trigger every 10s: The equipping character will gain 24% of their Elemental Mastery as bonus ATK for 12s, with nearby party members gaining 30% of this buff for the same duration. Multiple instances of this weapon can allow this buff to stack. This effect will still trigger even if the character is not on the field.
|Suited for team comp where Kaveh enables Elemental Reactions in the team comp such as Dendro-related reactions. The EM will help boost his reaction to DMG. Additionally, the passive will increase his ATK and buff other teammates.
There is quite an assortment of weapon options to choose especially if you do not have Kaveh’s limited edition Event weapon. He has quite a lot of F2P options as seen from the table above and does not need any 5-star weapons to dish out high-damage multipliers.
