How to Use Lisa

Strongest Character Available through the Story

Lisa Attack

Compared to Amber and Kaeya, the other characters obtained in the Story, Lisa has the potential to deal much more damage. As she uses a Catalyst for her weapon, she's able to inflict the Electro Element with her Normal Attacks and set up Elemental Reactions easily.

The Electro Element can be used in a number of Reactions which are notable for high damage output such as Overloaded. For players who haven't had luck rolling characters in their Wish pulls, Lisa is one of the strongest choices for leveling up in preparation for the story bosses.

Best Characters to Level Up Early

Great for Grinding Domains

Lisa Domains

If you're planning on running Domains multiple times to collect rewards, Lisa is a solid go-to. As Slimes show up often in Domains, Lisa can use Electro attacks against Water, Fire, and Ice Slimes for easy Elemental Reactions. Her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst hit across a wide range, so in Time Trial challenges often found in Domains, Lisa can pick up the slack.

Use when crafting Character and Weapon Enchancement Materials

Lisa Potion Crafting 2.png

Lisa has the Passive Skill “General Pharmaceutics”, which grants a chance of regaining a portion of the crafting materials used in creating Potions.

Since the materials used require grinding Domains to collect, it's best to exhaust as few as possible with each item crafted, so it's worth taking the effort to select Lisa whenever you craft these items.

I think Lisa is HIGHLY under-rated. Her normal attack causes a small stagger in ALL mobs. Combo Barbra (who's attack is the same) and it's devastating even in Domains. An elemental pulse with 4 normal attacks, swap to Barbra for 4 normal, swap back. 3-4 Reactions each swap & you can attack through walls. Fastest way I've found of taking down a Ruin Guardian/Hunter, or a shieldless Metachurl without a 5-star. Shielded little guys have to lower their shields to move so get hit too (even groups).
