Sangonomiya Kokomi
September 8: Kokomi's rerun banner goes live tomorrow, with Dori, Sucrose and Xinqiu.

Looking for the best Genshin Impact Kokomi build? It's been a little while since the Drifting Luminescence banner brought Kokomi in as a playable character. Since then, she's been a fan-favourite who has been impossible to obtain since the banner went away.


If you managed to get her during then and haven't built her up yet, you'll want to start paying attention to this Genshin Impact Kokomi build. She's due a rerun real soon, and if you score any of her Constellations, you're really going to want to reap those five-star rewards.

Kokomi in battle

How do I get Kokomi in Genshin Impact?

Kokomi released in Genshin Impact 2.1, and has since had a couple of reruns. Her banner, World Floating Under the Moonlight', will get another rerun in the second half of Version 3.0, alongside Ganyu, and will have Dori as one of the 4-Star characters.

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 heals 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.

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!

Skill Effect
Normal AttackPerforms three consecutive attacks dealing Hydro damage.
Charged AttackConsumes stamina to deal AoE Hydro damage after casting time.
Plunging AttackKokomi plunges to the ground, damaging enemies inbetween, and dealing AoE Hydro damage on impact.
Kurage's OathSummons 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 CeremonyDeals 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:


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.

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 the best Weapon for Kokomi?

Kokomi arrived with a special catalyst, Everlasting Moonglow. This is, therefore, the best option for her, but others can be used, too:

What is the best Artifact set for Sangonomiya Kokomi?

As both a healer and damage dealer, Kokomi can benefit from the healing bonus of the Ocean-Hued Clam, or would also benefit from the additional health that comes with the Tenacity of the Millelith set.
