Mastering the Power of Navia: A Genshin Impact Build Guide
The realm of Teyvat welcomes a long-anticipated addition to its roster – Navia, the Geo companion who ushers in a return to the Geo element’s prowess in terms of DPS. As Fontaine’s narrative unfolds, Navia emerges as a hyper-carry, offering promising damage potential and innovative ways to utilize Geo reactions. In this comprehensive guide, we unveil the best weapons, artifact sets, constellations, and team compositions to unlock Navia’s full potential in Genshin Impact.
How to Acquire Navia
Navia graces the Genshin Impact world as a 5-star Geo character, initially featured on the 4.3 limited banner. For those who missed this opportunity, patience is key, as reruns will provide another chance to acquire this formidable character.
Navia’s Gameplay Overview
- Element – Geo
- Weapon – Claymore
- Rarity – 5-star
Navia assumes the role of an on-field DPS, relying on consistent Crystallize reactions to maximize personal damage output. Unlike previous Geo DPS characters, Navia doesn’t demand a team filled with Geo units. Instead, she thrives with one Geo companion and two characters from Pyro, Hydro, Cryo, or Electro elements.
While she excels as a hyper-carry, Navia can also function as an off-field DPS for teams favoring rapid rotations between Skills and Bursts (Quickswap teams). As the game evolves with new characters and strategies, her playstyle may adapt.
Navia’s kit showcases impressive synergy, ensuring a cohesive and fluid gameplay experience without the clunkiness found in some characters. However, managing energy requirements is crucial, making teammates with Favonius weapons and another Geo character valuable additions to her team.
Key Stats for Navia
- Energy Recharge: Aim for approximately 170% for reliable Burst activation.
- ATK%: Primary scaling stat for Navia’s kit.
- Geo Damage Bonus
- CRIT Rate or DMG
- Navia’s Talents and Attack Combos.
- Normal Attack: Blunt Refusal.
Navia’s Normal and Charged Attacks may seem unimpressive initially, but her First Ascension Passive transforms them by infusing attacks with the Geo element, offering a substantial damage boost. This infusion enhances the creation of crystallized reactions, making Normal Attacks more potent than her Burst but less damaging than her skill.
Elemental Skill: Ceremonial Crystalshot
Navia’s bread-and-butter, constituting over 50% of her damaged output. This skill can be used twice per rotation, with its power influenced by the number of crystallized shards collected by the team. Optimal usage involves gaining stacks at point-blank range, maximizing the number of hits.
Elemental Burst: Harmonious Serenade of the Radiant Firmament.
Navia’s Burst delivers a significant instance of Geo damage, followed by multiple Geo explosions in a wide area. The Burst hits 17 times, providing extra Geo application to maximize her stacks.
- First Ascension Passive- Infuses Normal Attacks with Geo for four seconds after a skill use, granting an extra 40% DMG bonus.
- Fourth Ascension Passive- Grants 20% ATK to Navia for each teammate of an element between Cryo, Hydro, Electro, and Pyro (40% max).
- Exploration Passive- Increases rewards from Fontaine expeditions.
While Navia is potent at C0, constellations enhance her abilities. Noteworthy constellations include:
C1. A Lady’s Rules for Keeping a Courteous Distance – Reduces Skill cooldown and restores energy with each stack consumed, offering enhanced energy management.
C2. The President’s Pursuit of Victory Boosts the CRIT Rate of her Skill and adds a cannon shot from her Burst, providing substantial damage improvements.
C6. The Flexible Finesse of the Spina’s President – Enables Navia to nuke enemies with her Skill, making her extremely potent for front-loaded damage.
