Diluc, the current owner of the Dawn Winery, has been part of Genshin Impact since its release. He is a five-star character that uses claymores and belongs to the Pyro element. Considering his weapon preference and element, it is self-evident that Diluc is a prominent damage dealer.

Even after the arrival of Childe, Xiao, Ganyu, and Hu Tao with the recent updates, Diluc has maintained his status as one of the best damage dealers in Genshin Impact.

His elemental skill, Searing Onslaught, is a forward slash that deals Pyro damage and can be performed three times consecutively. Moreover, Diluc’s elemental burst summons a phoenix that causes a large amount of AoE Pyro damage.

Here’s a quick guide that shall help you in improving Diluc’s abilities and unleashing his true potential.

Weapons and artifacts in Genshin Impact that best suit Diluc

Increasing CRIT Rate, CRIT Damage, and Elemental Mastery, should be your priority while building Diluc. Five-star weapons like Wolve’s Gravestone and The Unforged significantly boost his damage. While the former increases Diluc’s attack by 40%, the latter enhances the stat by a staggering 100% when he is protected by a shield.

In a recent video, YouTuber Tenha explained why The Unforged is a better option than Wolve’s Gravestone for Diluc:

However, Genshin Impact runs on a gacha system where unlocking five-star items is a far-off possibility for many players. They can still use four-stars like the Prototype Archaic, or Battle Pass weapons such as the Serpent Spine.

Luckily, Diluc does not require the rarest artifacts available in Genshin Impact. A 4-piece set of Crimson Witch of Flames is more than enough for the protector of Mondstadt. It can provide a major boost to his Pyro, Overloaded, and Burning damage.

While using The Unforged with your Diluc, you must add a shield character to the party. These include Zhongli, Xinyan, Diona, Noelle, and Beidou. Furthermore, another Pyro character like Bennet or Hu Tao can provide Pyro resonance to the team. Lastly, a Cryo or Hydro character like Ganyu or Xingqiu to trigger Vaporize and Melt reactions is necessary for a party that comprises Diluc.

During combat, it is important to use Diluc’s Elemental Burst along with the bursts of support characters. As a result, you’ll be able to easily defeat terrifying enemies like the Geovishap, Childe, and Andrius, among others.
