Diluc Character Overview & Evaluation

Highest Burst DPS of All Characters

Diluc’s biggest strength is his phenomenal burst damage. His use of Claymores also allows him to break an opponent’s guard easily, particularly with the use of his melee attack + Elemental Skill combo!

Artifacts Can Buff Him Up Even Further

By equipping Artifact sets with useful bonuses, such as the Crimson Witch of Flames, Berserker, and Gladiator’s Finale, you can boost his damage even more. Increasing his Crit rate and Pyro damage will cause him to deal absolutely massive damage, so we highly recommend you do so immediately.

Elemental Burst Wipes The Floor With Enemies

AoE Burst

Diluc’s Elemental Burst ability summons creatures that deal massive frontal AoE pyro damage. This ability’s range is quite big and the damage keeps going as long as the summoned birds are out on the field, making this excellent for taking out groups of enemies.

Recommended Artifact Set Bonus

Crimson Witch of Flames2-Piece: Pyro DMG +15%4-Piece: Overload and Melting damage +40%. Added effects caused by Vaporize and Melt are increased +15%. For 10 seconds after using Elemental Burst, your 2-piece set bonus effect is increased +50%, maximum 3 times.
Gladiator’s Finale2-Piece: ATK +18%4-Piece: Characters equipping this set who use a Sword, Claymore, or Polearm gain +35% increased regular attack damage.

Crimson Witch Of Flame 4 Set Is Best

Focusing on improving Diluc’s Elemental damage is your best bet when it comes to gearing him. The Crimson Witch of Flame 4 set is absolutely ideal for him, as you’ll massively increase your Fire damage overall.

Gladiator’s Is A Good Fallback Option

If you just can’t get your hands on 4 separate pieces of Crimson Witch, you should consider Gladiator’s Finale as your fallback option!Check Out A List Of Artifacts Here
