Eula is a Cryo claymore user, whose talents and abilities make her an ideal physical-build DPS. Here’s how to build her to maximize her damage.
Genshin Impact’s 1.5 update has been out for approximately a month, and the new five-star character Eula has finally been released in every region. For the next few weeks, players wishing on the Limited Banner will have the ability to pull Eula with increased rates.
Eula is a Cryo claymore user, whose talents and abilities make her an ideal physical-build DPS. Eula is already considered to be an SS tier character, and this guide will explain what artifacts, weapons, and talents should be built to best maximize Eula’s damage potential.
How to Build Eula in Genshin Impact
Eula’s abilities focus on dealing physical and cryo AoE damage. Her normal attack ‘Favonius Bladework’ allows her to perform up to five consecutive strikes of physical damage, while her charged attack consumes stamina to perform continuous slashes (similar to Beidou’s).
Eula’s elemental skill ‘Icetide Vortex’ includes the Grimheart mechanic that only Eula possesses. Eula can carry up to two stacks of Grimheart at a time, and a stack can be gained every 0.3 seconds. These stacks boost her defence and resistance to interruption. Eula’s elemental skill allows her to slash quickly, dealing Cryo damage. Holding her skill lets Eula slash forward, dealing AoE Cryo damage to surrounding enemies, and consumes all her stacks of Grimheart. Each stack is converted into an Icewhirl Brand that deals Cryo damage to nearby enemies along with decreasing their physical and Cryo resistance.
Finally, Eula’s elemental burst ‘Glacial Illumination’ deals Cryo damage to nearby enemies, and creates a Lightfall Sword that follows her around. After using her burst, any damage dealt by Eula will charge the Lightfall Sword through energy stacks. At the end of Glacial Illumination, the Lightfall Sword explodes, dealing physical damage to nearby enemies. The damage of this attack scales with the number of energy stacks accumulated during Glacial Illumination. Swapping to a different character will immediately detonate the Lightfall Sword.
Since Eula does more physical damage than Cryo damage, players should invest in building her Normal Attack talent first, with a secondary focus on her burst. Eula’s talents require Hilichurl masks, Resistance books, and Azhdaha drops to level up.
Eula’s physical-favoring talents also make a 4-piece Pale Flame artifact set the best to run on her. This artifact set increases her physical damage by 25%, as well as a stackable attack increase every time she hits her Elemental Skill. An ATK% hourglass, Physical DMG Bonus% cup, and Crit Rate/Crit DMG hat will help maximize Eula’s damage output. A focus on Crit DMG and Crit Rate for her substats will also give Eula a massive damage boost.
For her weapon, the new weapon ‘Song of Broken Pines’ is considered to be made specifically for Eula. With a physical damage bonus substat, this five-star weapon contains its own stacking mechanic that works beautifully with Eula. For Free-To-Play characters, weapons with a physical damage bonus like the Snow-Tombed Starsilver are also a good choice.
In regards to team compositions, there are several characters that can work well with Eula. An Electro sub-DPS like Fischl will enable constant superconduct, keeping enemies’ physical resistance low and allowing Eula to do some insane damage. Another Cryo sub DPS enables the Cryo Resonance, increasing the Crit Rate of the entire party. Finally, Xinyan as a support can set up Melt reactions, and her shield increases Physical DMG by 15%, giving Eula an additional damage buff.
Despite only being released for a few hours, Eula is already considered to be a phenomenal main DPS. While players can test different abilities and see what builds work best for their playstyle, this guide should serve as a starting point for making Eula as powerful as possible.
