The hate around Kokomi in Genshin Impact is not justified

Ever since miHoYo hosted the routine live stream for the current patch last month. It deep-dived into Kokomi and everything this patch would add to the game. However, the news about Kokomi being a healer with no way to use the most powerful character attributes in Crit Rate and Crit Damage made her seem underwhelming.

Kokomi will have a negative 100 Crit Rate, which makes it impossible to build her as a DPS. It also rules out any possibility to use Crit Damage, with the complete absence of Crit Rate. This has made her the prime target for all the hate, even though the character hasn’t been fully revealed yet, meaning there are still things about her we don’t know.

The studio must have planned something before creating a character like her. But as of right now, it’s hard to tell whether their plan is working.

Rumors suggest Kokomi could be a great sub-DPS unit

The popular rumors around the upcoming 5-star character may reveal great things. She might have nothing to offer as a power DPS character, but Kokomi can handle herself. It seems like she might have a direct scale with her basic attack based on her effective HP pool. This will not make her builds easy but also allow you to build her with a single stat in mind.

Her elemental skill allows her to heal her teammates based on the HP pool. Moreover, her elemental burst also allows her to deal massive Hydro damage, and it could work incredibly well with various DPS characters.
