Genshin Impact Nilou builds with best artifacts, weapons, and team comps

Nilou recently made an appearance recently in Genshin Impact, and some new players might want to make her. If you’re not sure where to start, let this guide to be an overview. There are many ways to construct her. The final outcome will be determined by the player’s

  • Swords
  • Artifacts
  • Teammates

Players who play F2P and whales have vastly different resources. Also, a beginner doesn’t have as much resources available when compared to someone who has played for a long time. Therefore, it’s essential to have a manual which addresses all of those.

This article will begin with the ideal weapons of Nilou prior to moving onto artifacts and finally, we will discuss the best team competitions.

Note: Whales are people who are known to spend lots of money on games.

Best Nilou builds in Genshin Impact (weapons artifacts and teams comps)


Here’s a list of useful weapons for Nilou for Genshin Impact 3.1 and beyond:

  • Key of Khaj-Nisut
  • Primordial Jade Cutter
  • Freedom-Sworn
  • Xiphos’ Moonlight
  • Iron Sting
  • Sacrificial Sword

The three initial Swords are rarity of 5 stars, while the final three are four-stars. In general, the 5-star weapons are more effective in maximising her DPS however they are much more difficult to obtain.

Thus, beginner and people who are playing F2P would feel more comfortable with Xiphos’ Moonlight, Iron Sting as well as Sacrificial Sword. It’s important to note that Iron Sting can be made and is therefore much more straightforward to make than Genshin’s gacha systems.

NOTE: Generally speaking swords that increase Elemental Mastery are good for her.


In general, Nilou mains should aim to HP percentage primary stats on her artifacts and include as numerous Elemental Mastery substats that are possible. In terms of her artifacts, here’s an excellent list of things to think about:

  • Two-piece Wanderer’s Troope (or Gilded Dreams) + 2-piece Tenacity of the Millileth
  • Two-piece Wanderer’s Troope (or Gilded Dreams) + 2-piece Heart of Depth
  • 4-piece Gilded Dreams

The Wanderer’s Troupe is very simple to obtain within Genshin Impact, so most players will be able to obtain one with good statistics on it. The other three artifacts mentioned here are all accessible in particular Domains, and they include:

  • Capacity and Tenacity for the Millelith Ridge Watch
  • Heart of Depth The Peak of Vindagnyr
  • Gold-Gilded Dreams: Spire of Solitary Enlightenment

The Wanderer’s Troupe can be obtained by beating all Normal and Weekly bosses.

Team comps

Nilou has an interesting passive that basically requires players play her on teams with only Hydro and dendro-related characters. This means that her ideal team’s comps are quite restricted. Good sides can be found in:

  • Yelan, Kokomi, Dendro Traveler
  • Kokomi, Dendro Traveler, Collei
  • Barbara, Dendro Traveler, Collei
  • Xingqiu, Barbara, Dendro Traveler
  • Barbara, Collei, Tighnari

The inclusion of Kokomi or Barbara including them in these teams is highly recommended as Bloom reacts can lead to severe injuries to the characters. It’s also important to note that Nilou can be used in group competitions, excluding teams like the Hydro and the Dendro only teams however, this means that players will not be able to use the Court of Dancing Petals Passive completely.
