Clorinde is an upcoming Electro character who is expected to be released in one of Genshin Impact's 4.0 patches. She is a swordswoman who also wields a gun rumoured to be a 5-star character. Clorinde's build and abilities have not been fully revealed yet, but she is expected to be a powerful DPS character with a focus on Electro damage. Here's our breakdown of the best Genshin Impact Clorinde build.

Clorinde holds a position of great importance in Fontaine and will be heavily involved with the affairs of Fontaine as the story goes on. She’s currently slated for release during one of the early Fontaine patches. So let’s get on with the best Clorinde build including artifacts, weapons, and potential team compositions.

Who is Clorinde?

Clorinde is a powerful swordswoman with the special position of a champion duelist in Fontaine. Hailing from Mondstadt she has quite a fearsome reputation due to her exceptional combat skills. The battle-hungry Fatui Harbinger Childe has expressed the desire to face off against her due to this reason.

Furthermore, we see her in the company of Neuvillete, the judge of Fontaine, in the Overture trailer and she might be working with him in the capacity of an enforcer. This reflects Clorinde's high position in Fontaine's bureaucracy. Instead of a trial, the accused can duel, but they lose hope when she shows up.

Her views reportedly clash with that of the Navia and we can assume that she will be playing a pivotal role in the story of Fontaine. It’s entirely possible that she is a powerful enemy that players will have to face off against once the story in Fontaine kicks off, similar to the Raiden Shogun from Inazuma.

Clorinde release date and speculations

Clorinde is expected to be released in Genshin Impact's 4.1 or 4.3 updates, which are scheduled to be released in September/October 2023 respectively. However, note that this is just speculation and her actual release date has not been confirmed yet.

Best Artifacts, weapons, and team compositions

Clorinde best Artifact set

The Emblem of Severed Fate is likely to be the best artifact set for a DPS Clorinde build as it increases the character's Elemental Burst DMG by 20%. It also increases the character's Energy Recharge by 20%. This set is a good option for Clorinde if she ends up being heavily reliant on her Elemental Burst for DPS.

The best artifact set for an Electro damage-based Clorinde build would be the Thundersoother set. This set increases Electro damage by 25% when the character is under the Electro status effect. Clorinde will apply the Electro status effect with her elemental skill and burst, so she can take full advantage of the Thundersoother set bonus.

Clorinde best weapons

In the trailer, we saw Clorinde wield the Iron Sting weapons, confirming that she will be a sword user.

Clorinde can use a variety of sword weapons, but the best weapon for her will most probably be the Mistsplitter Reforged. This sword increases the character's Elemental DMG Bonus by 12% for every 200 ATK they have. The Mistsplitter Reforged is considered by many to currently be the best Sword in Genshin Impact and will likely be her best as well.

If she has a normal attack-based playstyle then The Black Sword is a good alternative for Clorinde as it increases the character's Normal Attack DMG by 20% and heals the character for 60% of the damage dealt with Normal Attacks. This weapon is a good option for Clorinde if you are not able to get the Mistsplitter Reforged.

Clorinde best teams

In the trailer, we saw Clorinde use the Electro element when she fired off her bullet. It’s safe to say that she will be an Electro character and we can see her fit in as a DPS character in lots of popular meta team comps. The Raiden Shogun currently dominates the Electro DPS meta and Clorinde might finally be the character to provide an alternative or even dethrone her.


You can expect to see Clorinde being utilised in the extremely powerful Hyperbloom comps alongside characters like Nahida and Xinqiu or used in standard Taser teams with characters such as Fischl and Yelan.

Clorinde is shaping up to be a powerful character who has the potential to be a top-tier DPS. She is still under development, but she has the potential to be a very popular character when she is released. For now, that’s all we know about the best Clorinde build and the story around her.
