How to Use Noelle

Shield Up and Heal Up

Genshin - Noelle
Elemental Skill: Breastplate

Noelle's Elemental Skill, Breastplate, creates a shield that scales with her Defense and gives her Normal Attacks a chance to heal the party. The healing from Breastplate also scales with her Defense. The more tanky Noelle is, the better support she can provide.

Noelle's shield will auto trigger if she is not on the battlefield and the active character drops below 30%. This is a great emergency defense mechanism that could save your main DPS from certain doom!

Dash to Extend Combos

Genshin - Dash to Extend Combos
Dashing keeps Noelle near enemies

The 4th hit of Noelle's Normal Attack combo will launch enemies out of Noelle's attack range and also has a long recovery animation. Dashing after the 4th hit will not only cancel the recovery animation but will also keep your target in-range, extending your combo.

Balance ATK and DEF

Genshin - Balance ATK and DEF
Elemental Burst: Sweeping Time

Despite being a defense-based character, Noelle has the potential to deal heavy damage!

Noelle's Elemental Burst, Sweeping Time, converts all Normal Attacks into Geo AoE attacks and boosts her Attack stat based on her Defense. Keeping her Defense and Attack stats as high as possible will yield the best results for Noelle's Damage and survival.

Cook Defensive Food with Noelle

Being a defense oriented-character, Noelle excels at cooking Defense Food. Maid's Knighthood grants a 12% chance of doubling the product when cooking Defense Food, giving you a shot to double up on your defensive preparations.
