Of the two new characters that we got with the 3.1 version of Genshin Impact, we have Candace and Cyno. The former is a 4-star polearm user that has a new gimmick to it. Candace is able to wear a shield when attacking which is part of her flair but also her abilities. It is great to see Hoyoverse innovating with characters’ animations and ways to attack. Just like Heizou and Dori. So, if you have been lucky enough to get Candace while pulling Cyno’s or Venti’s banner, today we have the best Genshin Impact Candace builds for you.
Genshin Impact Candace Builds for 3.1
Candace has two builds right now. She can either be your main DPS or a support DPS. This is great because she is a very flexible character that can adapt to a team that requires these two spots. Today we’ll focus on these two Genshin Impact Candace builds and what you’ll need to make them happen.
Main DPS Build
For the main DPS build you will need certain weapons and artifacts that buff her normal attacks. This is similar to what Cyno has on his builds. So, let’s see what you’ll need for this Genshin Impact Candace Build.
- Staff of Homa (Best)
- Primordial Jade Winged-Spear (Alternative)
- Dragon’s Bane (Alternative)
- Heart of the Depths x4 (Sands requires ATK %, Goblet requires Hydro DMG bonus, and Circlet requires Crit Rate or DMG)
This is the best way to go for the Genshin Impact Candace build for the main DPS. The stats and bonuses that these things have will ensure that during her burst attack she’ll be taking out enemies fast. She can also do some great synergy with characters like Yelan, Kazuha, and Fischl. Now, let’s move on to the support DPS build.
Support DPS Build
If you want to make Genshin Impact Candace builds, the second one works as a support DPS. More like an off-field character. For the build you’ll need:
- The Catch (Best)
- Staff of Homa (Alternative)
- Favonious Lance (Alternative)
- Emblem of Severed Fate x4 (Sands needs Energy Recharge, Goblet requires HP or Hydro DMG, and Circlet HP or Crit Rate)
With this, you can buff characters like Cyno and let him do all the work. Whichever way you go with these Genshin Impact Candace builds, she is a great addition to any team. If you plan to use her, start farming some ascension materials like the Redcrest in the new Sumeru desert. And also remember to check the rewards that Genshin Impact is giving for its second anniversary.
