Sumeru Archon Nahida is one of the best Dendro units in the game and she works well as an on-field as well as off-field unit.
Nahida is a Dendro catalyst user and can apply Dendro with her normal attacks.
She is an excellent unit in terms of character strength and worth pulling for if you have the Primogems.

Genshin Impact’s Dendro Archon Nahida is currently regarded as the strongest Dendro support and is great to have if you want to build Dendro teams. If you have not built her yet or are planning to get her soon, here is everything you need to know about Nahida’s Talents, Constellations and Passives.

Nahida is one of the best Dendro characters to have thanks to the 100% uptime she has on Dendro application as an off-field character. You can also use her on-field in Dendro teams. If you have the pulls to get her, we recommend summoning on the banner. She performs great at C0 and while the C1 and C2 are nice to have for a bump in damage, they are absolutely not necessary, especially for free-to-play players or low-spenders.

Genshin Impact Nahida Best Teams 

Nahida has endless team options thanks to how flexible Dendro is as an element. Some example teams include: 

  • Keqing, Nahida, Fischl, (Flex)

  • Kuki Shinobu, Nahida, Alhaitham, Yae Miko

  • Nahida, Off-Field Hydro (Xingqiu/Yelan/Kokomi), Electro, (Flex)

Since she functions as both an off-field and on-field unit, Nahida is a flexible unit that you can add to any Dendro team.

Genshin Impact Nahida: Talents

Nahida is a Dendro catalyst user and can apply Dendro with her normal attacks. It allows her to have an on-field role if you want to play her as your main DPS or reaction enabler. 

Elemental Skill - All Schemes to Know: Sends forth karmic bonds of wood and tree from her side, dealing AoE Dendro DMG and marking up to 8 opponents hit with the Seed of Skandha.

When held, this skill will trigger differently.


  • Enters Aiming Mode, which will allow you to select a limited number of opponents within a limited area. During this time, Nahida's resistance to interruption will be increased.

  • When released, this skill deals Dendro DMG to these opponents and marks them with the Seed of Skandha.

  • Aiming Mode will last up to 5s and can select a maximum of 8 opponents.

Seed of Skandha

Opponents who have been marked by the Seed of Skandha will be linked to one another up till a certain distance.

After you trigger Elemental Reactions on opponents who are affected by the Seeds of Skandha or when they take DMG from Dendro Cores (including Burgeon and Hyperbloom DMG), Nahida will unleash Tri-Karma Purification on the opponents and all connected opponents, dealing Dendro DMG based on her ATK and Elemental Mastery.

You can trigger at most 1 Tri-Karma Purification within a short period of time.

  • Press Cooldown: 5 seconds

  • Hold Cooldown: 6 seconds

  • Seed of Skandha Duration: 25 seconds

Elemental Burst - Illusory Heart: Manifests the Court of Dreams and expands the Shrine of Maya.

When the Shrine of Maya field is unleashed, the following effects will be separately unleashed based on the Elemental Types present within the party.

  • Pyro: While Nahida remains within the Shrine of Maya, the DMG dealt by Tri-Karma Purification from "All Schemes to Know" is increased.

  • Electro: While Nahida remains within the Shrine of Maya, the interval between each Tri-Karma Purification from "All Schemes to Know" is decreased.

  • Hydro: The Shrine of Maya's duration is increased.

If there are at least 2 party members of the aforementioned Elemental Types present when the field is deployed, the aforementioned effects will be increased further.

Even if Nahida is not on the field, these bonuses will still take effect so long as party members are within the Shrine of Maya.

  • Duration: 15 seconds 

  • Cooldown: 13.5 seconds

  • Energy Cost: 50

C1 - The Seed of Stored Knowledge: When the Shrine of Maya is unleashed and the Elemental Types of the party members are being tabulated, the count will add 1 to the number of Pyro, Electro, and Hydro characters respectively.

C2 - The Root of All Fullness: Opponents that are marked by Seeds of Skandha applied by Nahida herself will be affected by the following effects:

  • Burning, Bloom, Hyperbloom, and Burgeon Reaction DMG they receive can score CRIT Hits. CRIT Rate and CRIT DMG are fixed at 20% and 100% respectively.

  • Within 8s of being affected by Quicken, Aggravate, Spread, DEF is decreased by 30%.

C3 - The Shoot of Conscious Attainment: Increases the Level of "All Schemes to Know" by 3.

C4 - The Stem of Manifest Inference: When 1/2/3/4 (or more) nearby opponents are affected by All Schemes to Know's Seeds of Skandha, Nahida's Elemental Mastery will be increased by 100/120/140/160.

C5 -  The Leaves of Enlightening Speech: Increases the Level of Illusory Heart by 3.

C6 - The Fruit of Reason’s Culmination: When Nahida hits an opponent affected by All Schemes to Know's Seeds of Skandha with Normal or Charged Attacks after unleashing Illusory Heart, she will use Tri-Karma Purification: Karmic Oblivion on this opponent and all connected opponents, dealing Dendro DMG based on 200% of Nahida's ATK and 400% of her Elemental Mastery.

  • DMG dealt by Tri-Karma Purification: Karmic Oblivion is considered Elemental Skill DMG and can be triggered once every 0.2s.

  • This effect can last up to 10s and will be removed after Nahida has unleashed 6 instances of Tri-Karma Purification: Karmic Oblivion.

Genshin Impact Nahida: Passives

Compassion Illuminated: When unleashing Illusory Heart, the Shrine of Maya will gain the following effects:

  • The Elemental Mastery of the active character within the field will be increased by 25% of the Elemental Mastery of the party member with the highest Elemental Mastery.

  • You can gain a maximum of 250 Elemental Mastery in this manner.

Awakening Elucidated: Each point of Nahida's Elemental Mastery beyond 200 will grant 0.1% Bonus DMG and 0.03% CRIT Rate to Tri-Karma Purification from All Schemes to Know. A maximum of 80% Bonus DMG and 24% CRIT Rate can be granted to Tri-Karma Purification in this manner.

On All things Meditated: Nahida can use All Schemes to Know to interact with some harvestable items within a fixed AoE. This skill may even have some other effects (Some NPCs’ thoughts can be revealed using this passive and it is a fun little exploration gimmick).
