March 12, 2024: We've updated our Navia build guide for Genshin Impact.

Navia is a 5-star Geo Claymore character from Fontaine, released during Genshin Impact 4.3. She is a Fontaine noblewoman known for her elegance and grace. Navia is a powerful 5-star Claymore DPS character who can deal damage with her Geo attacks. Let’s look at the best Navia build and her role in the meta.

As a noblewoman from Fontaine, she holds a special place in its society due to her parent’s influence. Currently, she is against the status quo of Fontaine and fights against it for a change.

While you're here, take a look at the latest patch notes for Genshin Impact 4.5 and the new Chronicled Banners.

Who is Navia?

Navia, president of Spina di Rosula, is leading the charge against discrimination in Fontaine. Her parents played a pivotal role in the creation of the esteemed aquabus line that bears her name. Though her relationship with Clorinde is complex, Navia remains resolute in her fight for equality. She also has a complex relationship with Neuvillette who was partially responsible for the death of her father. She plays a pivotal role in introducing us to the societal hierarchy of Fontaine.

She carries around an umbrella that she can often be seen gliding on. She is also a Geo user, as we see her carry a Geo Vision. Navia is a 5-star Claymore user and an excellent DPS character to have on your team.

Best Navia artifacts

The best artifact set for Navia is the Nighttime Whispers In The Echoing Woods, as it boosts her ATK and Geo DMG.

However, you can also opt for a combination of the Gladiator's Finale and Archaic Petra Artifact sets. Together they give her a DPS bonus to both her ATK and Geo DMG. Alternatively, if you have a character like Furina, who can manipulate HP, consider going all in on the Marechaussee Hunter artifact set.

Her priorities for stats as a DPS character are:

  • ATK%
  • Geo DMG Bonus
  • CRIT Rate and CRIT DMG

For sub-stats, your focus should be on the same stats as above alongside a minor focus on Energy Recharge for her Elemental Burst.

Best Navia weapons

These are the best weapons for a DPS Navia Build:

  • Verdict
  • Serpent Spine
  • The Unforged
  • Wolf's Gravestone

If you can get her signature weapon Verdict, then it'll be the best possible weapon for Navia. However, Navia's best weapon slot has a cheap alternative option.

For F2P players, here are your best options for Navia's weapons:

  • Serpent Spine
  • Ultimate Overlord's Mega Magic Sword
  • Tidal Shadow

Serpent Spine will be your best choice for Navia's weapon even as a F2P player. The only weapon that can outclass it is the Verdict. It's easy to get and quite powerful on her.

Best Navia team compositions

  • Navia Crystallize Buff Team: Navia DPS, Albedo Sub-DPS, Bennett for heals and buffs, and off-field sub-DPS like Fischl, Xingqiu or Xiangling for the Crystallize reactions.
  • Geo Supremacy Team: This team consists of Navia, Zhongli, Albedo, and Ningguang. This team provides a lot of Geo damage and shields, making it very tanky.

Traditionally this comp is spearheaded by Arataki Itto as the main DPS. However, Navia might be able to take his spot if her kit has enough DPS potential. If her abilities play a more supportive role, then she can replace Ningguang and function as a sub-dps or support.

  • Navia Furina Team: Navia DPS, Furina Sub-DPS, Zhongli or Albedo for damage or shields, and the final slot should be filled by Charlotte or Bennett for heals.

That’s it for our best Navia build, weapons, artifacts, and team comps. While you’re here, you should learn about other important characters, such as Freminet, Neuvillette, and Wriothesley.
