To start with, you’ll need to pick out a good weapon for Wriothesley. Wriothesley has many different Catalysts he can choose one, allowing any player to succeed with him, whether they are free-to-play or heavy spenders. Here are some of your best options:

  • The Cashflow Supervision is Wriothesley’s best 5-star option, and overall his best-in-slot choice. The Cashflow Supervision is Wriothesley’s signature weapon and will be featured on the weapon banner alongside Wriothesley when he is a featured character. This weapon increases the wearer’s Crit Rate by a max of 22%. This weapon will also boost the wearer’s ATK by 16% and the wearer’s Normal Attack and Charged Attack damage after their HP increases or decreases. As Wriothesley drains his HP during battle, he will very frequently proc the passive, making this a perfect pick for him.
  • The Solar Jade is Wriothesley’s best 4-star option, and the best option for players looking for a cheaper alternative to a 5-star weapon. Note: this weapon does require you to purchase the battle pass, so you will have to spend a bit of money to obtain this weapon. This weapon increases the wearer’s Crit Rate by 27%. Additionally, using Wriothesley’s Elemental Skill or Burst will subsequently increase his Normal Attack DMG by 20%, up to 40% at max refinements.
  • The Ballad of the Boundless Blue is Wriothesley’s best free-to-play option, boosting his ATK by 564 and giving some Energy Recharge on the side. This weapon boosts the wearer’s Normal Attack and Charged Attack DMG by 16% and 12% respectively. You’ll have to compensate for the lack of Crit Rate or Crit DMG buffs from this weapon through Wriothesley’s artifacts.

  • The Marechaussee Hunter set is the best option for Wriothesley, boosting his Normal and Charged Attack damage by 15% while also boosting his Crit Rate by 12% whenever he loses HP, up to three times (for a total of 36% Crit Rate.) The boost to Wriothesley’s Normal and Charged ATK damage is appreciated, but the massive Crit Rate boost allows you to be flexible when farming substats.
  • The Blizzard Strayer set will be Wriothesley’s best option if you are planning to utilize him in a Freeze team. This set will boost Wriothesley’s Cryo DMG by 15%, and his Crit Rate by 20% when the enemy is affected by Cryo. If an enemy is Frozen, then Wriothesley will gain another 20% Crit Rate buff.
  • The Shimenawa Reminiscence set is a viable option for Wriothesley, but you’ll have to forgo using his Elemental Burst and focus solely on his Normal and Charged ATK damage. This set will boost Wriothesley’s Normal and Charged ATK damage by 50% after using his Elemental Skill, but only if Wriothesley has 15 or more energy.
