Raiden Image Raiden Lisa Image Lisa Kazuha Image Kazuha Bennett Image Bennett

Lisa utilizes her Elemental Burst to reduce DEF% and deal as much damage as she can before Raiden takes the reins. Bennett and Kazuha also give buffs to Lisa and Raiden to maximize damage!

Lisa also complements Raiden's Elemental Burst downtime with her Elemental Skill, and having Electro Resonance takes care of her required Energy Recharge!

Substitute Characters
Genshin - Venti ImageGenshin - Sucrose ImageGenshin - Sara ImageGenshin - Zhongli ImageGenshin - Xingqiu Image

The Sub-DPS partner for Lisa can be a Viridescent Venerer holder Anemo character. Sucrose or Venti are good as they can gather enemies! Other Sub-DPS that provide off-field buffs and damage can work as well!

Raiden Shogun and Bennett are core teammates in Lisa's team comp, and so there's not a lot of recommended substitutes for them!

Alternate Team Comp Option

Main DPS Sub-DPS Sub-DPS Support
Eula Image Eula Raiden Image Raiden Lisa Image Lisa Diona Image Diona

Lisa in a Superconduct team comp can work to buff Physical DMG, but Lisa won't be as significant as her being in an Overloaded team comp. In this team comp, Lisa utilizes her 15% DEF shred instead!

You can also slot in Fischl instead of Raiden in this team comp, but the recommended ER will stay the same!

Lisa Best Sub-DPS Constellations

Rating Constellation Effect
C4 ★★★ Increases the number of lightning bolts released by Lightning Rose by 1-3.
C6 ★★☆ When Lisa takes the field, she applies 3 stacks of Violet Arc's Shocked status onto nearby enemies. This effect can only occur once every 5s.

Recommended to Get C4

As a Burst Sub-DPS, we recommend getting Lisa to C4 to buff your Elemental Burst to its fullest potential. If you're lucky enough to get Lisa to C6, you will be rewarded with being able to use the charge version of her Elemental Skill without needing to build stacks first.

Lisa Sub-DPS Playstyle

Overload Sub-DPS with Electro

Genshin - Lisa-Raiden Burst
Lisa works best in this playstyle to induce the Overloaded reaction when using her Elemental Burst. In this team comp, she also boosts the Electro Main DPS's damage with her 15% RES shred!

Recommended Rotation

Sub-DPS Team Comp Rotation
Get close to an enemy and use an Electro Character like Raiden or Fischl to inflict Electro on the enemy.
Switch to an Anemo Character like Kazuha or Sucrose and use their Elemental Skills to spread and buff Electro. For Kazuha's case, it's best to tap it.
Cast Bennett's Elemental Burst to induce Overload and buff the party.
Use an Anemo Character's AoE Elemental Burst to spread Pyro and then use an AoE Elemental Skill to gather them inside Bennett's Pyro AoE.
Tap Lisa's Elemental Skill once or twice against the grouped enemies to spread two to three stacks of the Conductive status, then hold her Elemental Skill.

Unleash Lisa's Elemental Burst to deal AoE Electro DMG.
Use an Electro Main DPS Elemental Burst or attacks to finish off the enemies and regenerate energy for the entire party.

Generate Energy with Elemental Skill

Genshin - Lisa Elemental Skill and Energy
By stacking the conductive status and on the enemies then holding her Elemental Skill, you will generate 5 Elemental Particles for Lisa. Electro Resonance makes it easier to generate Electro Particles for the entire team!

How to Use Lisa

How to Stack Conductive Status

The Conductive Status is the number that appears on the enemies when they get hit with Lisa's Elemental Skill, the more of these stacks you have the stronger the Electro DMG will be when you Hold on to Lisa's Elemental Skill! The limit is up to three.

There are four ways to stack this status; by directly tapping the skill once on the single enemy, via the radiate effect, through her charged attack, and overloaded or superconduct reactions.

Tips on How to Stack Conductive Status

Genshin - Lisa Radiate with Element.gif

How to Stack Conductive Status
Tapping on a Single Enemy
Tap Lisa's Elemental Skill to stack one conductive status on a single enemy. Tap two more times to have a complete three stacks!
Radiating Effect
Since the conductive status has a small AoE, enemies that are tightly packed together who are hit will spread a single stack around them. 3 enemies that are grouped up will put 3 stacks on each other from a single tap of Lisa's Elemental Skill!.
Charged Attack Stack
When you've ascended Lisa past the first ascension, you'll unlock a talent that allows you to stack enemies with her charged attack. You can only stack 1 per charged attack so it's best to do them in succession!
Overloaded/Superconduct Reactions
When Lisa's Elemental Skill comes into contact with Pyro or Cryo to induce Overloaded or Superconduct, the explosion itself will spread a stack. This means that even if an enemy is affected with Cryo or Pyrom, they will generate 2 stacks on themselves with one tap of Lisa's Elemental Skill.

Use Elemental Burst to Set Up Reactions

Genshin - Lisa Elemental Burst

Lisa's Elemental Burst, Lightning Rose, creates an AoE that deals Electro DMG. This makes it great for setting up Elemental Reaction combos!

In addition, her Elemental Burst can also shred the enemy's DEF!

Good Character to Build Early Game

Genshin - Lisa Early Game

Lisa is a great early-game character to build who can use her Catalyst to create Electro-related Elemental Reactions, which blends well with fellow starting characters like Kaeya and Amber.
