Genshin Impact: what makes Raiden Shogun a free-to-play-friendly unit?

Much like every other Archon unit, Raiden is also an S-tier character that needs to be a part of your team. She can not only buff your team’s damage output but also help your team to quickly regenerate their elemental burst. The best part about her kit has to be her constellations, and talent levels.

Even at C0, she is pretty much a godlike unit, who can dish out damage numbers that no other unit can match. You don’t need to invest a lot in her talent levels at all. At just level 6, she is perfectly capable of decimating the majority of the content without breaking a sweat.

Baal is a character that makes use of the Energy Recharge stat to dish out damage and helps the team. However, you should follow the golden ratio rule and buff her attack damage, crit rate, and crit damage to respectable numbers. This character relies on her elemental burst to deal exorbitant numbers of damage.

Team composition and artifact builds for Raiden Shogun

There are a number of great choices that players can use to build Baal. She excels as support but also holds great potential for DPS with consistent damage. You can pair her with a Hydro character to trigger an electro-charged reaction that can constantly deal great damage. Although, Xiangling can be a great partner for her as well because of the impressive overload reaction.

Choosing the best artifact build is quite easy as Baal is totally centered around energy recharge. The 4-piece set of Emblem of Severed Fate is the perfect choice for her. It offers enhanced energy recharge and significantly improves the damage output of her elemental burst.
