  • 4 pcs Chaos: Provides balanced damage output.
  • 4 pcs Woodpecker: Offers similar damage expectations to Chaos.
  • 2 pcs Swing Jazz: Ensures energy regeneration (ER).

Main Stats:

  • Slot 4: Best choices are Crit Rate, Crit DMG, or ATK%.
  • Slot 5: Ether DMG Bonus is the optimal choice.
  • Slot 6: Choose either Energy Regen or ATK%.

Sub-Stats:

    • If Slot 4 has Crit Rate or Crit DMG: Stack ATK% in the sub-stats.
    • If Slot 4 has ATK%: Stack Crit in the sub-stats.

Zhu Yuan Team

Zhu Yuan Best Team – Physical Stun Team

Zhu Yuan Physical Stun Team Explanation

 

Best Team Pairing for Zhu Yuan

Team Composition:

  • Zhu Yuan
  • Anby
  • Nicole
  • Bangboo: Use Devilboo

Rationale for the Team:

Nicole:

  • Team Passive:
    • Provides a 40% DEF reduction.
    • Offers a 25% Ether DMG boost for the entire team.
    • Buff duration is short but matches Zhu Yuan’s short-duration high bursts.
  • Energy Field:
    • Triggers Reactive Assist when it hits enemies, positioning Zhu Yuan immediately after Nicole.
    • Using Assist allows Zhu Yuan to gain an Enhanced Shotshell.
    • Gathers enemies in a large area, highly compatible with Zhu Yuan’s small-area AOE attacks.

Anby:

  • Compatibility:
    • Highly efficient at stunning enemies, complementing Zhu Yuan’s output mode and Daze mechanism.
  • Team Passive:
    • Activates normally with Nicole, as they belong to the same faction.
  • Playstyle:
    • Anby’s output and breakthrough timing align well with Zhu Yuan’s burst playstyle.

Cost-Effectiveness:

  • Nicole and Anby are pre-unlocked characters, making Zhu Yuan the most cost-effective character in the game.
