Apt weapons for the dendro hero

As we saw from the trailer, Yaoyao is a polearm user. So here is a list of ideal weapons that travelers can equip her with.

5-Star weapon- Staff of Homa

Hu Tao’s marque weapon will go pretty well with Yaoyao. The weapon will help her, as she is a healer.

4- Star weapon- Favonius Lance

The staff of Homa is a much-wanted weapon for many polearm heroes. And much may find it odd to give the weapon to a four-star character. So, the perfect substitute would be Favonius Lance. The weapon provides additional energy for the team and also increases the uptime of elemental burst.

3- Star-Black Tassel

This is also a pretty good weapon for Yaoyao. It is ideal for HP stacking for the character.

If you want to build her around Dendro reactions, Moonpiercer would be ideal. The weapon increases attack and elemental mastery for the hero. This is also a free item that can be obtained in the game.
