We meet the devilishly charming Cavalry Captain from the Knights of Favonius in the first act of the game, where we learn that even though he is extremely secretive and eccentric he is held at one of the highest regards. Here we will learn more about how to build Genshin Impact Kaeya.
The Cryo sword user is a free to play character that is received during the prologue questline, he is one of the best free to play characters you can have on your team, with some of the highest late-game scaling crit multipliers.
What is the best weapon for Kaeya?
The two best weapons for Kaeya are Skyward Blade, and Festering Desire, we want to get as much energy recharge as we can before jumping into the artifacts, so equipping a weapon that has scaling recharge will help players keep their elemental ultimate up all the time.
We also want to get as much crit as we can. so the Festering desire also scales crit for the elemental skills.
What Artifacts should you use?
You want to build the Blizzard Strayer artifact set, which once having the 4 piece set you gain “
When a character attacks an enemy affected by Cryo, their CRIT Rate is increased by 20%. If the enemy is Frozen, CRIT Rate is increased by an additional 20%.”
Adding that on top of Kaeya’s scaling crit will lead to having massive amounts of burst damage. You are going to want to look for ATK% / Cryo DMG / CRIT DMG as sub stats on the artifacts, also rolling energy recharge isn’t a bad option as well.
What does it cost to ascend Kaeya?
Kaeya requires Cryo Regisvine drops for his ascension materials, needing 48 Horafrost Cores in total. He also needs to farm Calla Lilly, though more than likely have accrued a stock pile of them from completing the weekly Mondstadt battle pass quest.
Lastly this pirate look alike needs Treasure Horader insignias, that wraps up Genshin Impact Kaeya ascension materials.
As for talent materials, he needs 9 Teaching of the Ballads, 63 Guide to Ballad, and 114 Philosophies of Ballad.
He also needs to farm Andrius for the Spirit Locket of Boreas. And just like his ascension materials he needs more Treasure Horader Insignias.
Kaeya, is an amazing character to build and have on your roaster if you find yourself missing damage and or crowd control, he also makes for great exploration characters to get to tricky areas.
His scaling crit makes for amazing burst damage, and if given a little bit of love, even when his burst is on cool down he can do consistant massive damage.
