What is the best Tighnari build?

Tighnari is one of two Dendro bow users coming in Version 3.0, the other being Collei. He works best as a DPS, especially utilizing the Dendro Element to its fullest. Here's what we suggest in terms of weapons and artifacts.

What is the best weapon for Tighnari? Tighnari weapon tier list

Tighnari's bow shots have two levels of power, with the second dealing more Dendro damage than the first, while summoning more arrows to attack the target. As a DPS, Tighnari should use weapons that buff attack, crit, or damage rates.

How to get Tighnari in Genshin Impact

Tighnari is a 5-Star character with a banner that started on August 24.

His Viridescent Vigil banner will feature Collei, Fischl, and Diona as boosted 4-Stars. After his banner, he will be added to the standard pool.

What is Tighnari's element?

Tighnari, Verdant Strider, is one of the first Dendro users to come to Genshin Impact. The Dendro users are the specialty of the new region Sumeru, and will focus on Dendro reactions with other Elements.

What are Tighnari's skills?

Each Genshin Impact character has two skills and a passive ability. One of the skills takes longer to charge, and is a stronger attack. For Tighnari, these are:

  • Skill 1 - Tighnari can throw an AOE Dendro object, generating a field where enemies will be afflicted with Dendro damage.
  • Skill 2 - The second skill fires tracking arrows towards enemies, which of course deal Dendro damage.
  • Passive - Tighnari's passive skill will show the location of Sumeru-specific resources nearby.

Judging by these skills, especially the passive, it seems that Tighnari is very similar to Inazuma's Gorou, and not just because of the ears.

What is Tighnari's Constellation?

Tighnari's Constellation is Vulpes Zerda - the Latin for 'Fennec Fox'. This is likely what Tighnari's ears and tail are based on, too. A leak has speculated his skills, which are:

  • C1 - Charged attack CRIT rate increased by 15%
  • C2 - Vijnana-Phala Mine: when enemies enter this field, Tighnari gains 20% Dendro DMG boost.
  • C3 - Increases Fashioner's Tanglevine Shaft by +3.
  • C4 - All party members gain +60 Elemental Master for 8s when Fashioner's Tanglevine Shaft is used. If it creates Dendro reactions, and extra +60 is added.
  • C5 - Increases Vijnana-Phala Mine by +3.
  • C6 - Wreath's Arrow charge time is decreased, and gains an extra hit.

Tighnari's Ascension and Talent Materials

According to leaks, Tighnari will need the following materials to be completely levelled up to level 90:

Amount Needed
Nagadus Emerald Sliver, Fragment, Chunk, Gemstone
1, 9, 9, 6
Majestic Hooked Beak
Nilotpala Lotus
Fungal Spores

Tighnari's supposed Talent upgrades require these materials, as well as an unnamed Sumeru-specific upgrade material:

Amount Needed
Teachings of, Guides to, Philosophies of Admonition
9, 36, 114
The Meaning of Aeons
Fungal Spores

Crystalline Cyst Dust

Who is Tighnari?

The lead ranger of the Avidya Forest is Tighnari, who looks out for visitors to the area. In fact, he specifically tells you to look out for poisonous mushrooms.

His cosmetic appearance is similar to Gorou, with ears and a tail - though Tighnari's ears stick straight up. He is a short male character model.
