February 27, 2024: We've updated our Furina build guide for Genshin Impact.

Furina is the Hydro Archon of Justice. She is a confirmed playable character in Genshin Impact. Learn about Furina's best build, weapons, and artifacts with our handy guide.

Let's explore the complex backstory of Furina, whose childish demeanour masks a painful past, and investigate the twisted state of affairs in Fontaine.

Who is Furina in Genshin Impact?

Furina is the current vessel of the Hydro Archon and the current ruler of Fontaine. Her appearance is that of a young girl with aristocratic attire and light blue hair to represent the theme of her element Hydro. Her personality is described by Neuvillete as being prone to hysterics, lacking patience and prone to temper tantrums. This might be due to her young age as an archon, as she replaced the previous Hydro Archon after the Cataclysm 500 years ago.

The previous Hydro Archon passed away defending the country and passed the mantle onto Furina. However, many powerful figures across the world, such as Rhodea of Loch, did not recognise Furina as the new Hydro Archon and cut all ties with Fontaine. Furina currently spends her days bored in the court of Fontaine, which she regularly visits, waiting for something to change.

There is also a prophecy involving her that says that the kingdom of Fontaine will drown in the rain, with the Hydro Archon weeping alone afterwards. We see these events play throughout the story of Fontaine as we find out the truth behind the fate of the original Hydro Archon and Furina's origin.

Furina Best Roles

Furina is actually an SS tier character in any role that she plays, thanks to her incredibly diverse and powerful kit. You can slot her in as a DPS, as a Support, or as a sub-DPS. It all depends on what you want to play her as and what your team needs. There will be build differences for each role that will change her best artifact set and weapon for each one.

Some standout builds for Furina include:

  • Hydro DPS
  • Millelith Shield buff Sub-DPS
  • Hybrid Buffer Support
  • Healer Support

Best Furina artifact sets

As we mentioned, Furina can play a variety of different roles for your team. Here are the best artifact sets for her alongside the stats you need to priorities for each role.

DPS

  • Golden Troupe x4
  • Nymph's Dream x4

With these, you want to prioritise HP% on the main stats and a bit of Crit Rate/Crit DMG for the circlet, depending on your substats. For substats, get a good Crit Ratio and focus on Energy Recharge.

For maximum effectiveness, aim for 40,000 HP and then build up the rest of Furina's stats.

Sub-DPS

  • Golden Troupe x4
  • Tenacity of the Millelith x2
  • Heart Of Depth x2

As a Sub-DPS, Energy Recharge will be Furina's most important stat, followed by Hydro DMG, Crit Rate, and HP%, in that order.

Support

  • Golden Troupe x4
  • Tenacity of the Millelith x2
  • Heart Of Depth x2

The same artifacts as the Sub-DPS build; however, your artifact stat priority should be HP% and Energy Recharge unless you're playing her as a Healer. In which case, go with Healing Bonus.

Best Furina weapons

Here are the best weapons for Furina in priority order for every role.

  • Splendor of Tranquil Waters (All builds)
  • Key of Khaj-Nisut (DPS/Healer)
  • Fleuve Cendre Ferryman (F2P DPS)
  • Primordial Jade Cutter (Sub-DPS/Support)
  • Festering Desire (F2P DPS/Sub-DPS)

For F2P players, Festering Desire, Fleuve Cendre Ferryman, and the Favonius Sword for Support builds will be your best options.

Best Furina teams

Furina's gameplay revolves around HP manipulation mechanics, so characters that can synergise with those and provide reliable healing are best suited to teams with her. One of the best characters you can pair with Furina is Neuvillette.

Best Healers for Furina

Furina needs strong healers to offset the party-wide drain she deals on your team.

Best DPS for Furina

You'll have to adjust Furina's build according to each DPS character, as some of them want more elemental damage while others just want buffs and support from her.

Best Sub-DPS for Furina

You can experiment with Furina's team comps to create Hyperbloom, Quickbloom, and Vaporize comps. A popular F2P comp is to run Furina National with Xiangling, Xingqiu and Bennett.
