FAQs about Genshin Impact Ningguang

Ningguang is an amazing DPS that deals constant Geo DMG to enemies far and close. Her DMG mostly came from her powerful charged attacks. This however limits Ningguang’s movements.

Approximately 25 years old. The age of Ningguang is not obviously stated in the game. Ningguang’s birthday is on August 26th. 

Ningguang is a 4-star girl character, which means she’s not the rarest character in Genshin Impact, but she’s pretty uncommon.

Memory of Dust is a perfect weapon for Ningguang if you have it. It’s one of the strongest catalysts, with a base attack of 46, and its secondary stat boosts attack even further, up to 49% at the highest tier.

C6 Ningguang is among the best sub-DPS units in Genshin Impact. Once players unleash her Elemental Burst, Ningguang will inflict great damage with her projectiles. She will then gather seven Star Jades for her next Charged attack, which will also deal massive damage.

And they mostly say the same thing: Noblesse is the best artifact for Ningguang. With Archaic Petra as the second best. Retracting Bolide as the third best.

For a pure DPS Ningguang, a combination of Nobless Oblige and Archaic Petra is the most ideal artifact build, boosting both her Geo DMG and Elemental Burst DMG.

A four-piece build of either set can also work well, with Noblesse being more suited for a support role while Petra is better for DPS.

Beiguang is the femslash ship between Beidou and Ningguang from the Genshin Impact fandom.

In Genshin Impact, Ningguang works best as a main DPS character. Our guide outlines the best weapons and artifacts for the four-star geo character and also provides details on every item you need to reach ascension level six.

Noelle heals a crap ton and sometimes breaks those shields if you can get her Ult up consistently she’ll do great.

Ning just breaks those shields. If you build her, even if you don’t cap her out, she’ll be very useful in some domains, and generally use very frequently.

Xingqiu is a great choice if you’re planning on creating some other reactions in your team. He provides support to your team particularly when he’s not on the field, because his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst stay active even when you switch him out with another character. If you equip him with a Sacrificial Sword, he can also generate massive amounts of Energy Particles for your team.

One of your options for a team with Ningguang would be Bennett, who also shines thanks to his multiple capabilities. Bennett is a great Sub-DPS who can deal damage when you’re letting Ningguang take a breather, but his Elemental Burst also lets him provide support when inactive.

Bennett’s Elemental Burst creates a circular area on the ground that does multiple things. It heals the characters standing in it, and if they’re already healed, then it provides them with an attack boost. This can be great with a heavy hitter like Ningguang, allowing you to increase your damage output.

Ningguang’s passive talents will highlight and increase Zhongli’s Geo damage in battle. They, too, create a Geo resonance, as well, overall making them a solid pairing with Zhongli either as the main DPS or as a support DPS in your setup.
