Best Healers

By
Matt Chard

Description

This page is designed to help you discover which healer, best fits your team. Their overall healing capabilities is based on how much they heal for as well as how often they can use their healing spells. We have come to this conclusion from studying the community’s findings as well as our own independent testing.

This is all calculated at Constellation Level 0, mainly because not that many people will have it leveled to max and it can dramatically change the outcome of the rankings.

With all that in mind, in our opinion, Qiqi is the best in terms of pure healing power due to her healing scaling off her attack and because there are alot of attack increasing Artifact Sets, it becomes easier to reach her max potential. Jean and Diona offer alot more, with Diona boasting a shield which negates damage and Jean having more damage and crowd control but their healing effectiveness is diminished because of this.

This list is based on the Version 1.3 update.

Qiqi

Qiqi heals by using her Elemental Skill: Herald of Frost which will deal Cryo damage to nearby enemies, when you attack the enemies effected by this with normal or charged attacks, she’ll regenerate health at regular intervals, the amount she can heal is scaled of her max attack.

Recommended Weapon and Artifact Set

Type Weapon Icon Notes
Aquila Favonia ATK is increased by 20%. Triggers on taking DMG: the soul of the Falcon of the West awakens, holding the banner of the resistance aloft, regenerating HP equal to 100% of ATK and dealing 200% of ATK as DMG to surrounding enemies. This effect can only occur once every 15s.
Artifact Set Icon 2 Piece Bonus 4 Piece Bonus
Gladiatior’s Finale ATK + 18% If the wielder of this artifact set uses a Sword, Claymore, or Polearm, increases their Normal Attack DMG by 35%.

Jean

Jean heals through her Elemental Burst: Dandelion Breeze, what this does is a large AoE Anemo attack and heal the party for a major amount of HP, afterwards it will leave behind a large AoE effect on the field, and in this field, it will continue to heal you at regular intervals. She also can heal from her normal attacks if you are lucky enough to unlock her Wind Companion Constellation which will make 50% of her normal attacks heal for 15% of their damage that they inflict, her healing also scales of the ATK stat.

Maiden Beloved Character Healing Effectiveness +15%. Using an Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst increase healing received by all party member by 20% for 10s.

Using two of each set will give you better healing but both full sets are good and could be better depending on your party setup.

Diona

Diona heals mainly through her Elemental Burst: Signature Mix and the rest by preventing the damage with her Shields. She is unique because her attack abilities scale from ATK but her shields and healing scale of max health.

Recommended Weapon and Artifact Set

Favonius Warbow CRIT hits have a 60% chance to generate 1 Elemental Orb, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12s.

Bennett

Bennett is unique as he’s not really a tradional healer and he offers a lot more to the team than that but built right, he can be a buffer and healer powerhouse. He heals mainly through his Elemental Burst: Fantastic Voyage which will either heal, if the character is equal or below 70% health, otherwise it will buff your attack up to 70% + of Bennetts max attack, his abilities scale of attack.

Recommended Weapon and Artifact Set

Type Weapon Icon Notes
Festering Desire Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 16% and Elemental Skill CRIT Rate by 6%.
Artifact Set Icon 2 Piece Bonus 4 Piece Bonus
Noblesse Oblige Elemental Burst DMG +20%. Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members’ ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.

Barbara

Barbara is what you would call a pure healer, she has an Elemental Skill: Let the Show Begin which will make normal attacks heal all party members, whilst her Elemental Burst: Shining Miracle will do one big burst heal for major health, her skills scale of her max health. She would be rated higher but her Skill and Burst are on rather long cooldowns and she doesn’t offer anything else inbetween.

Recommended Weapon and Artifact Set

Type Weapon Icon Notes
Prototype Amber Using an Elemental Burst regenerates 4 Energy every 2s for 6s. All party members will regenerate 4% HP every 2s for this duration.
Artifact Set Icon 2 Piece Bonus 4 Piece Bonus

Noelle

Noelle is more of a support than healer but with the right setup she can fill the role. She heals via her Elemental Skill: Breastplate, once the shield is on you, she has a chance to heal with normal or charged attacks, what makes this good is it scales of defence.

Using two of each set will give you +30% Defence which will increase your healing output and +35% increase to the shield she provides which will negate a lot damage.

Xingqui

Xingui isn’t really a healer but deserved to be mentioned due to his level 1 Talent: Hydropathic which will make him heal for 6% of his HP when one of his Rain Swords shatter or expire.
