Genshin Impact: The best weapons and artifacts for Gorou
Let’s discuss the best weapons and artifacts in Genshin Impact for Gorou.
Favonius Warbow (energy recharge) – Simply put, we’ll use Favonius Warbow from gacha wishes since this is the best weapon for Gorou. We want the extra energy recharge since we’ll want to get Gorou’s burst often. This also helps in Mono-Geo comps as Gorou can act as a battery (or others can help him in that regard).
Sacrificial Bow (energy recharge) – If you don’t have the Favonius Warbow, then the Sacrificial Bow (also from gacha wishes) can be a substitute. It does have energy recharge as a sub-stat. However, due to Gorou’s high elemental skill uptime, its proc is unnecessary.
4-piece Noblesse Oblige – Assuming Gorou is your only pure support character in the party, then the Noblesse Oblige from the Clear Pool and Mountain domain is the best artifact set for him.
- Two-piece bonus -+20% elemental burst damage.
- Four-piece bonus – Using an elemental burst increases the ATK of all party members by 20% for 12 seconds. This is great because the timing will also coincide with the effect if Gorou is C6.
4-piece Husk of Opulent Dreams – If you want Gorou to do a bit of damage, too, then you can get the Husk of Opulent Dreams from the Slumbering Court domain. The only downside is that you’re going to have to farm for ideal rolls, especially since this artifact set is considered the best-in-slot (BIS) for Albedo and Arataki Itto.
- Two-piece bonus – +30% DEF.
- Four-piece bonus – Gain Curiosity buff stacks. You get one stack when you hit an enemy with a Geo attack. If you’re off the field, you receive one stack every three seconds. Curiosity can stack up to four times, with each stack providing +6% DEF and +6% Geo damage bonus.
In any case, let’s go to the next part of our Genshin Impact Gorou guide to talk about his character ascension materials.
