Best Constellations Rating and Explanation

Rating Constellation Effect / Merits
C1 ★★☆ • Deal 15% more damage if enemy HP is more than 50%.
• A simple buff that helps defeat enemies faster, but offers no value once enemies are below 50%.
C2 ★★★ • Gain a stack whenever Diluc takes damage.
• Still works even if Diluc has shields.

C2 Works When Shielded

Contrary to the description, this constellation still activates if Diluc takes damage while shielded. However, Diluc will need to be paired with a shielder to take advantage of this unless you plan on taking damage on purpose.

Elemental Skill Interrupts Enemies

Genshin - Diluc Elemental Skill - Searing Onslaught
Elemental Skill: Searing Onslaught

Diluc's Elemental Skill, Searing Onslaught, has the power to interrupt enemies with each of its hits. This can be used strategically to stop certain enemies from moving or using certain skills.

Smash Through Shields

Genshin - Diluc - Destroy Shields

Being a claymore user, Diluc can tear through shields with ease. Being a Pyro character offers Diluc even more utility against shields having very strong elemental reactions with non-pyro element shields.

Tear Through Enemies with Elemental Burst

Diluc Elemental Burst

Diluc's Elemental Burst, Dawn, summons a flaming phoenix towards enemies dealing AoE Pyro DMG. It also imbues Diluc's claymore with Pyro, giving you a lot of opportunities to dish out Elemental Reactions.

Thoughts About Diluc

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Barbara ImageBarbara Oh, Master Diluc? Last time, when I was performing at Angel's Share, he kept frowning... Maybe he doesn't like my singing?
Genshin Impact - Diona ImageDiona Diluc... I can't stand him! If there was no Diluc, there would be no Mondstadt wine industry; if there was no Mondstadt wine industry, Daddy wouldn't drink; and if Daddy didn't drink... he would keep me company. Ohhhh...
Genshin Impact - Eula ImageEula I don't get along with some of the knights, and he doesn't think much of them in general, so you'd think that would make us allies.
But the way he always acts so aloof - he's even worse than Acting Grand Master Jean. I want nothing to do with him.
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean Disillusion: Master Diluc has his reasons for being so critical of the Knights of Favonius. I am not proud of the way things went, but I cannot change the past. All I can do is keep working hard, in the hope he may one day see us in a better light... This is my duty.
Respect: Master Diluc is my senior, and I have the utmost respect for him. Though we have gone separate ways, I can sense we share the same strong commitment to protecting Mondstadt at all costs.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya Diluc? He was cute as a young lad. But nowadays he just seems to be in a world of his own... Overall, not much fun to hang out with.
Genshin Impact - Klee ImageKlee He's one of the weird grown-ups. He's so grumpy all the time... Why does he never smile?
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa You want to know about Diluc? Haha, in that case, I know someone else you should talk to.
Genshin Impact - Mona ImageMona Diluc Ragnvindr. His constellation, Noctua, represents vigilance in the darkness of night... A lone guardian keeping watch, longing for the splendor of dawn, yet destined to solitude in the dark days preceding its arrival. ...Or, wait, maybe Noctua's the one tied to wealth...?
Genshin Impact - Razor ImageRazor Diluc is red and black. Hot and cold.
Genshin Impact - Rosaria ImageRosaria Isn't it obvious? There's more than meets the eye to that rich tycoon. He's confident, yet discreet... and even a little bit dangerous.
Genshin Impact - Venti ImageVenti I'm not surprised you want to befriend Master Diluc. Just think of all the vintage wine he must have stored away... Mwuhahaha... Huh? He doesn't let you sample it? Not even the slightest drop? Huh... Well, I guess you can still appreciate the aroma. That's still better than no wine at all, right? No?

Diluc's Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Diona ImageDiona About Diona
Diona's attitude towards me is... how should I put it? Rather rigid. I've yet to find the opportunity to speak with her properly. I'm not sure if it's an issue with my family line or— Oh? It's not? She simply despises alcohol? Huh... I never thought I'd come across another bartender like myself in Mondstadt.
Genshin Impact - Eula ImageEula About Eula
Ah yes... I've heard about her. She has her own convictions. Her determination to liberate herself from the shackles of her clan is praiseworthy. But, she's... joined the Knights of Favonius.
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean About Jean
Enemies: Trifling matters can become Jean's greatest enemy.
Responsibilities: Her unparalleled sense of responsibility is the sole reason why she still hasn't found her true calling.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya About Kaeya
Kaeya? You can only trust half of what he says... at best.
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa About Lisa
I believe Lisa has the potential to become the most reliable of the knights. If she's willing.
Genshin Impact - Mona ImageMona About Mona
The land of Mondstadt, by the Anemo Archon's grace, is bountiful. I see no need for the harvest forecasts of astrologers.
Genshin Impact - Varka ImageVarka About Varka
Grand Master Varka... Whilst I understand his disposition, I can make no sense of his actions ...IーI've said too much already. I've long since left the Knights of Favonius. Forget I said anything.
