Tighnari is an excellent sub-DPS character, as he can apply Dendro to enemies with his elemental skill. This makes for easy bloom reactions when used with characters like Nilou or Kokomi. In addition, he has a quick but powerful burst that helps him feel the sub-DPS roll perfectly, and his charged shot has two different levels of power.

He’s best used in reaction teams, as there is currently not a Mono Dendro team that he can slot into due to the lack of Dendro characters currently in the game.
