How Do I Get Lisa in Genshin?
Lisa is obtainable by spending wishes in the Wanderlust Invocation standard banner or through the main story, after the quest Sparks Amongst the Pages. Good luck obtaining her!
What Are the Best Lisa Builds?
Lisa excels as great Electro Support. She hits really hard with a great Electro Burst that is great to knock down foes and trigger reactions, and her Elemental Skill is also great for crowd control, making her a great team player.
Below is the best Lisa builds right now. You can keep reading to find out the hows and whys of this particular Lisa build, but if you've used this character before, you'll quickly understand the thought process behind her best weapon and artifact choices.
|Role||Best Weapon||Alternative Weapon||Best Artifacts||Alternative Artifacts|
|Electro Support Build||Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds||Solar Pearl||Noblesse Oblige (4 Pieces)||Noblesse Oblige (2 Pieces) & Thundering Fury (2 Pieces)|
Since the idea is to inflict damage using the Elemental Burst as often as possible, weapons like Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds or Solar Pearl are always the best options. If you can’t afford those, the Mappa Mare should suffice as well.
Due to the supportive nature of the whole artifact set, the Noblesse Oblige set is the best choice by far in this context. However, if you want to boost Electro Damage instead of buffing your party, you can always mix some Thundering Fury parts in it.
What Are the Best Team Comps for Lisa?
No matter the team you assemble, whenever you use Lisa you want to proc as many Elemental Reactions as possible. Zhongli serves as a tanky DPS, but is with Lisa, Xingqiu, and Sucrose, where the fun starts. All the three of them can wreak havoc on the battlefield mixing their different Elemental attacks, while Zhongli shields them from harm.
What Are the Best Weapons for Lisa?
The Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds or Solar Pearl is the only real good option for this build, but you can also find a more affordable and equally good alternative in the form of the Solar Pearl. Last but not least, if you’re looking for a craftable option, you can obtain the Mappa Mare if you still don’t have any of the former.
|Weapon||Rarity||Stats||Skills||How to Obtain|
