Best Team Comps for Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact

Yoimiya and Raiden Shogun

Yoimiya is one of the best Pyro DPS in the game. Her elemental skill converts all her normal attacks to Pyro so that you can have an advantage over long-distance fights. Furthermore, when paired with Shogun, you can constantly trigger Overload reactions without worrying about getting knocked back.

Furthermore, most of the damage of Yoimiya comes from her elemental skill; therefore, you can switch off to Raiden’s sword stance till her cooldown runs off. For the remaining two, you can go with Xingqiu and Zhongli or Diona.

Raiden Shogun as the main DPS in Genshin Impact

Raiden Shogun can fulfill the role of both support character and main damage dealer with the help of a perfect team. Many players are always interested to build her as a main DPS so that she can stay on the field most of the time.

If you are one of them, then you need characters in your party that can provide an immense attack bonus to her. Kujou Sara and Bennett are perfect for this role and you can even gain Electro Resonance with Shogun and Sara. Not to mention, Kazuha can also play a crucial role in shredding enemies’ resistance, increasing teams’ Electro DMG and crowd control.

Hu Tao and Raiden Shogun

When it comes to the best team comps, Hu Tao always gains a spotlight. It’s mainly because she is one of the strongest damage dealers in the game and her constant Pyro damage can destroy opponents in seconds.

However, she needs Xingqiu and Zhongli’s support to stay alive in the field as most players like to use her below 50% for increased damage. Interestingly, even after Xingqiu and Zhongli, there is still one spot left in the party for Raiden. You can trigger a lot of Overload reactions with Hu Tao and Shogun.

Eula and Raiden Shogun- Strongest Duo in Genshin Impact

The most used combo in the current Spiral Abyss is of Eula and Shogun. It’s mainly because Shogun perfectly fits Eula’s playstyle by triggering constant Super Conduct reactions. Eula is a physical damage dealer with a Cryo vision and Super Conduct decreases the opponent’s physical resistance by 40% for 12 seconds.

With the help of constant Super Conduct, Eula can deal more damage than any other character. This is one of the most broken duos in the game and if you have both Eula and Shogun, you should definitely try them.

Eula comes with one flaw which is high energy cost; therefore, it would be best to use Diona in the team to have her burst always up. Lastly, you could go with Bennett, Kujou Sara, or Zhongli to provide significant support.

Most of the players have just started their journey in Genshin Impact; thus, they don’t have any previously introduced five-star characters. However, this doesn’t mean that there is no perfect team for Raiden without having support from other five-star characters.

One of the most popular teams for Shogun is built from only four-star characters. The splendid four-star units to use with Raiden are Xiangling, Xingqiu, and Bennett.

Bennett can help you to get an additional attack bonus with some significant heals whereas Xiangling is a great help to trigger the Overload reaction from her burst. Not to mention, Xingqiu is always good to have when you need to apply Hydro status to enemies and deal more damage.
