Genshin Impact


Jessica Dillon

Nahida is a powerful character and one of the seven Archons of Teyvat. She represents the Dendro element and is the God of Wisdom. While she may just seem like your standard support character at first, she is powerful on the battlefield, and can even hold her on as your sub-DPS. To learn more about Nahida, what you need to ascend her, and the teams she works on, keep reading our guide below.

Nahida’s official character card.


Rarity Tier Weapon Vision
(5 Stars) SS Catalyst Dendro


Name Nahida
Sex Male
Constellation Sapientia Oromasdis
Region Sumeru
Affiliation Sumeru City & The Seven
How to Obtain Event Wish: The Moongrass’ Enlightenment

Release Date



One might say she pays too much attention or dotes on people too much… But while her actions can be flawed, I believe her sense of responsibility as Sumeru’s deity to be a commendable thing. Ah, that the youngest of gods should be thus, while a certain other person, by contrast, should be so prone to hysterics…

Skills Talents

Talents Icon Name Notes
Normal Attack Catalyst_Dendro.png Akara Perform four-consecutive strikes or hold to create a Dendro cube that closes in on enemies dealing AoE Dendro damage.
Elemental Skill Talent_All_Schemes_to_Know.png All Schemes to Know Tap to do an AoE swipe and mark enemies with a Seed of Skandha. Hold to bring up a square and mark enemies with a Seed of Skandha automatically. The Seed links enemies together. When an elemental reaction hits one, they will all take damage from Tri-Karma Purification, which scales based on Nahida’s attack and elemental mastery.
Elemental Burst Talent_Illusory_Heart.png Illusory Heart A large portion of the field is covered by the Shrine of Maya. Inside of the Shrine of Maya, using different elements will cause different effects to take place. Pyro increases the damage of Tri-Karma Purification, Hydro increases the Shrine of Maya’s duration, and Electro shortens the intervals in between Tri-Karma Purification.

Nahida is best used in teams that need Dendro support or a powerful sub-DPS. She works wonderfully on Bloom teams and, in many ways, is designed to run perfectly alongside both Nilou and Cyno. She can also benefit heavily from Pyro characters, and she can easily apply the Dendro element to enemies by using her elemental skill.
