Looking for the best Genshin Impact Kokomi build? Kokomi is an upcoming playable character in Mihoyo's massive open-world game, and we know a bit more about her compared to some other upcoming characters.
Kokomi, or Sanganomiya Kokomi, to use her full name, first appeared during the Genshin Impact 2.0 trailer. She's the leader of the Sangonomiya Resistance movement opposing Raiden Shogun, otherwise known as Genshin Impact Baal.
However, based on Mihoyo's subsequent info drop about Kokomi, it seems she's perhaps not quite as militant as her title would suggest. The character card calls her the 'Hibernating Homebody Strategist', though she's considered wise and shrewd as well.
What Is the Genshin Impact Kokomi Release Date?
Kokomi will release in Genshin Impact 2.1 "World Floating Under the Moonlight", and Mihoyo confirmed that she will be showcased in the second Event Banner for that update, following the Raiden Shogun and Sara one, as stated on the game's official Twitter account.
Genshin Impact 2.1 "World Floating Under the Moonlight" will probably release sometime in early September, assuming Mihoyo continues with its six-week update pattern.
Is There a Kokomi Banner?
We don't have any exact banner info, but as there are three characters slated for 2.1, it might follow a similar structure to 2.0, with one character releasing first, then two others later on. If this is the case, we suspect Baal will be the headlining character, and Kokomi will come later in September.
The Best Genshin Impact Kokomi Build
Kokomi is a five-star Hydro catalyst-user, and in some ways is a little like a souped-up Barbara, only that her extremely strong healing abilities also deal damage. Similar to Sayu's Muji-Muji Daruma, Kokomi's Bake-Kurage both heal you and deals damage to nearby opponents.
The damage dealt by these jellyfish scales is based on Kokomi's max HP, as does the amount of healing, which means it's a good idea to either build her towards Hydro damage or build on her healing abilities.
|Role||Best Weapon||Alternate Weapon||Best Artifact||Alternate Artifact|
|Hydro DPS||Skyward Atlas||Solar Pearl||Heart of Depth||Noblesse Oblige|
|Healing||Prototype Amber||Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers||Maiden Beloved||The Exile|
What Are Kokomi's Skills?
Kokomi is ideally used as a Support character since her abilities provide healing, and her Bake-Kurage deals Hydro damage periodically even when Kokomi isn't the active character. As with Xingqui's burst, this allows you to set up plenty of elemental reactions. Thanks to Honey Hunter World for the details!
|Normal Attack||Performs three consecutive attacks dealing Hydro damage.|
|Charged Attack||Consumes stamina to deal AoE Hydro damage after casting time.|
|Plunging Attack||Kokomi plunges to the ground, damaging enemies inbetween, and dealing AoE Hydro damage on impact.|
|Kurage's Oath||Summons a Bake-Kurage that heals nearby allies at intervals and attacks enemies with Hydro damage based on Kokomi's max HP. Also applies wet to Kokomi.|
|Kaijin Ceremony||Deals AoE Hydro damage to enemies and wraps Kokimi in a water cloak that boosts regular attack and Bake-Kurage damage. It also applies healing to regular attacks based on Kokomi's max HP, and lets her walk on water.|
Kokomi's Passive Talents
Kokomi also has some very cool passive talents:
|Haworthia Casket||If Kokomi's Bake Kurage are present when she uses Kaijin Ceremony, its duration is refreshed.|
|Song of Pearls||When wearing the Ceremonial Garment created by Kaijin Ceremony, Kokomi's normal and charged attack damage bonus is increased further based on 15% of her healing bonus.|
|Princess of Watatsumi||Decreases swimming stamina consumption for your party by 20%.|
|Flawless Strategy||Kokomi obtains a 25% healing bonus, but her crit rate decreases by 100%.|
What Are Kokomi's Constellations?
Kokomi's constellations further increase the effectiveness of her healing, but mainly add bonuses while she's wearing the Ceremonial Garment from her Kaijin Ceremony burst.
|At Water's Edge||While wearing the Ceremonial Garment from Kaijin Ceremony, the final attack in Kokomi's combo unleashes a fish that deals 30% of her HP as Hydro Damage|
|The Clouds Like Waves Rippling||Characters with 50% HP or less recei 4.5% extra healing based on Kokomi's max HP from Baka-Kurage, and 0.6% from Kaijin Ceremony's healing attacks.|
|The Moon, A Ship O'er the Seas||Increases the level of Kaijin Ceremony by three. Max upgrade level is 15.|
|The Moon Overlooks the Waters||While wearing the Ceremonial Garment from Kaijin Ceremony, Kokomi's attack speed is increased by 10%, and normal attacks restore 0.8 energy. This effect can occur every 0.2s.|
|All Streams Flow to the Sea||Increases the level of Kurage's Oath by 3. Max upgrade level is 15.|
|Sango Isshin||While wearing the Ceremonial Garment from the Kaijin Ceremony, Kokomi gains a 40% Hydro damage bonus for 4 seconds after her attacks heal a character with 80% HP or more.|
What Are Kokomi's Character Ascension Materials?
Kokomi's character ascension materials are a mixture of resources from across Inazuma, plus the usual Hydro ascension lazurites. Here's what you'll need:
- Varunada Lazurite
- Dew of Repudiation
- Sango Pearls
- Spectral Husks
Of course, the Inazuma-based resources won't be available until we make our way to Watatsumi Island in version 2.1 (if leaks are to be believed).
What Is Kokomi's Weapon?
It's possible that Kokomi will arrive with a special catalyst, though leakers haven't shared any information about the resistance leader having a specific weapon as of yet. We'll be sure to let you know as soon as more details arrive.
