Genshin Impact: Dehya Build Guide (Artifacts, Weapons and More)

16 Min Read

In today’s build guide, the topic of discussion is Dehya: her Ascension/Talent Materials and costs, her talents, constellations, best artifacts, weapons, and teams. Before we begin, we will briefly introduce the character and their role in the world of Genshin Impact.

Dehya, titled “Flame-Mane”, is a 5-star Pyro claymore user. She was released in Genshin Impact version 3.5 as one of the most looked-forward Genshin characters.

A Summary Of Dehya’s Kit

Dehya’s kit allows her to be built as both tank and DPS. Dehya‘s best-in-slot 5-star weapon is The Beacon of the Reed Sea claymore. We thought the day would never come, but the 4-star The Bell claymore is also a viable weapon to equip on Dehya. The Emblem of Severed Fate artifact can be used to buff her Elemental Burst DMG, but other viable options include the 2-piece Crimson Witch and Gilded Dreams artifact sets.

Dehya’s Normal and Charged Attacks

Dehya’s Normal and Charged Attacks

Sandstorm Assault: Normal Attack

Dehya performs 4 strikes with her Claymore

Sandstorm Assault: Charged Attack

Dehya‘s stamina depletes over time to perform continuous slashes, also performing a stronger slash when the attack button is released, or when Stamina runs out.

Dehya’s Elemental Skill: Molten Inferno

Dehya’s Elemental Skill

The Flame-Mane deals AoE Pyro DMG, and creates a field known as Fiery Sanctum at her location. If a field already exists, Dehya performs a slam attack; dealing AoE Pyro DMG and recreating the field at her new position.

This new field will inherit its duration from the previous existing Fiery Sanctum. The location of the field can be refreshed once throughout the fields total duration.

The Fiery Sanctum has the following properties:

  • Only one field can exist at a time.
  • Deals coordinated attacks whenever an active character within the field takes DMG.
    • This coordinated attack is dealt as AoE Pyro DMG, and scales off Dehya‘s ATK and HP. A single coordinated attack can occur once every 2.5s.
  • Active characters have increased resistance to interruption.
    • When these characters take DMG, a portion of it is mitigated and is dealt to Dehya over a 10s period instead.
      • The DMG that Dehya can absorb this way will not go over a certain percentage of Dehya‘s max HP.

Dehya’s Elemental Burst

Dehya’s Elemental Burst

The mercenary enters the Blazing Lioness state, increasing her resistance to interruption and continuously unleashing Flame-Mane’s Fists.

Dehya deals consistent Pyro DMG based on her ATK and HP when in this state. She also performs the Incineration Drive attack after the duration ends.

Once the Burst’s duration ends, and a Fiery Sanctum field already exists, Dehya will create another field at the location where she performed Incineration Drive.
This field will inherit the older fields duration.

Furthermore, Dehya’s Normal/Charged attacks and Elemental Skill are replaced by Roaring Barrage, which increases the speed at which the next fist strike is triggered.

Dehya’s Best Teams

Kaedehara Kazuha, Bennett, Xiangling
Kaedehara Kazuha, Bennett, Xiangling

Dehya along with two of the most broken Pyro characters, Xiangling and Bennett, and Sucrose/Kazuha as your Swirl support is your best go-to team composition for a DPS-focused Dehya build.

Nahida, Bennett, Ganyu
Nahida, Bennett, Ganyu

This team makes use of Dehya‘s supportive capabilities. The Pyro application provided by her Elemental Skill can allow your Ganyu (charged-shot) to do massive amount of Cryo DMG.

Hu Tao, Yelan, Xingiu
Hu Tao, Yelan, Xingiu

Players can also opt to make use of Dehya‘s capability to enable Pyro resonance within their teams. After using Xingiu and Yelan’s Elemental Bursts, and then switching to Hu Tao’s Elemental Skill. Players can deal with excellent Pyro DMG. Dehya can then come in to fill Hu Tao’s cooldown time to do Burst DMG of her own.

It is important to note, Dehya‘s burst does not proc neither Xingqiu’s nor Yelan’s Elemental Burst off-field Hydro effects.

And that’s about it for Dehya’s guide! Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments!
