Genshin Impact’s Kuki Shinobu is a hardworking and dutiful gal, who essentially acts as a babysitter to Itto and the Arataki gang. Outside of that, she’s a unique four-star electro sword wielder, who sacrifices her health to summon an electro ring that damages enemies and heals allies, making her a great asset in multiple team types. So let’s take a look at the best Genshin Kuki build including her artifacts, weapons, skills, and more.

Now, let’s see what Genshin Impact’s Kuki Shinobu is all about.
What’s the best Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu build?
Kuki Shinobu is a support character and has a fantastic healing skill that also dishes out electro damage with its pulsing ring. The ideal Kuki build relies on plenty of elemental mastery, as this is what her passive healing talent is based on, but she also needs a high max HP stat, as her Sanctifying Ring elemental skill scales off this.
Kuki has recently come into her own thanks to the addition of the dendro element – she works fantastically in a Hyperbloom team, providing reactions left, right, and centre along with her healing.
What are the best Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu weapons?
Sumeru has given us some great weapon options for Kuki – the five-star Key of Khaj-Nisut and four-star Xhiphos’ Moonlight both buff elemental mastery, with the Key giving a hefty HP buff.
Freedom-sworn is another solid choice due to her healing scaling with her elemental mastery, and its skill still procing when she’s not on the field. Similarly, Iron Sting essentially works as an elemental mastery stat stick, though the skill likely won’t be very valuable to her.
On the other hand, Sacrificial Sword’s energy recharge means Kuki is able to use her burst more frequently, and the skill reset is always handy, especially as her skill field deals damage and therefore can trigger Sacrificial Sword’s passive even if she’s not on the field.
What are Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu’s best aritfacts?
We believe that Tenacity of the Millelith works best with her kit as her healing skill procs the buff, even when she’s off-field. Alternatively, if you don’t have another character on the team equipped with Noblesse Oblige we recommend giving that to Kuki, as its team-wide buff is invaluable but doesn’t stack.
Artifact stat recommendations
Generally, for a top-notch healing Kuki, you should focus on increasing her elemental mastery and HP in her artifact stats and sub-stats. Energy recharge takes a back seat because, as a healer, you don’t need to use her burst much at all.
- Sands: Elemental mastery and HP
- Goblet: Elemental mastery and HP
- Circlet: Elemental mastery and HP
- Elemental mastery
- Energy recharge
What are Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu’s abilities?
Kuki has the potential to offer some great DPS and electro application, while also healing herself and her teammates. Her skill relies on her sacrificing a portion of her health, and the duration of her burst extends if her HP is below 50%. Therefore, like Genshin Impact’s Hu Tao, she benefits from not being healed to full HP.
Don’t be afraid to see her HP bar drop into the red – if you’ve got her skill levelled up and some decent HP and elemental mastery on her artifacts, she’ll be able to survive with just a few ticks of her own healing.

What are Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu’s talent materials?
Kuki, like all her fellow Genshin characters, requires a range of materials to get her talents up to scratch. The main cost is mora, but you also need talent books and some enemy drops. To upgrade her talents to higher levels, you also need Tears of the Calamitous God, dropped by the weekly Raiden Shogun boss fight.
What are the best Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu team comps?
Kuki Shinobu fits into many team comps. She’s a fantastic healer with almost constant uptime which means constant electro application, too. This means she excels at creating reactions, not just healing up your team. Here are just some examples of teams to use, including quicken, hyperbloom, superconduct, and an Itto geo team.
