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

Elemental Burst: Sweeping Time

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

Thoughts About Noelle

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Amber ImageAmber You wanna know about Noelle? She's super resilient. Still, since she's younger than us we should still look out for her.
Genshin Impact - Barbara ImageBarbara Noelle is just the cutest! She's so kind and patient, you just feel totally relaxed when you're around her. ...Oh yeah, and she makes the tastiest snacks! Best part is, they're also healthy. Tee-hee!
Genshin Impact - Bennett ImageBennett Noelle's someone I've been watching for a while. She's really talented, and extremely hardworking. But somehow she's still a maid - the Knights of Favonius still haven't made her a knight. It's a shame, don't you think? Boy, if she switched to the Adventurers' Guild, she'd easily be one of the best there is.
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean Noelle... She's very trying in her pursuit to become a Knight of Favonius. However, I fear she is not quite ready for the dangers that lie beyond Mondstadt's walls.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya I was entrusted by the Acting Grand Master to discreetly and indirectly support Noelle, but there hasn't been much for me to concern myself with, she has a good head on her shoulders. Quite the relief.
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa Every time I ask Noelle to dust off the bookshelves, I'm always left with the sense that the more exhausted I make her, the happier she becomes. Yes, who knows what's going on with her... 'chuckles'
Genshin Impact - Sucrose ImageSucrose She's a really willing helper, I can't deny that. It's just... she makes me a bit anxious is all. One time, she saw three boxes of materials stacked just outside my laboratory door, and proceeded to move them inside for me. A nice gesture, but the thing is... I'd only just finished putting them outside...

Noelle's Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Amber ImageAmber About Amber
I really look up to Amber. Not only is she an accomplished knight, but she's a kind person too. She taught me how to make a Baron Bunny. I keep it in my Person for luck, and it look quite alright, don't you think?
Genshin Impact - Barbara ImageBarbara About Barbara
We take tea breaks together sometimes. Often she'll start humming a tune, saying inspiration has come to her. I'm not the right person to give useful feedback on anything musical... But I still love spending time with Barbara.
Genshin Impact - Bennett ImageBennett About Bennett
He's asked me to join the Adventurer's Guild more than a few times, saying that life there would suit me better than with the Knight's of Favonius. While I could help him take care of his "dads" like the other adventurers... the Knights hold a special meaning for me, and I'm not ready to give up on becoming one yet. No, I simply cannot accept this offer.
Genshin Impact - Fischl ImageFischl About Fischl
Tea: I think she's from another world, but I don't know the details. One thing i do know, however, is that she loves the Knight's of Favonius' library. She can always be found there with her nose in a book. I bring her some refreshments whenever I go in there to clean, and she always thanks me profusely. When I say profusely... I mean she goes a bit over the top, to be honest, and... I actually don't understand half of what she's saying.
Background: So once when I was cleaning the library, I noticed a book on the shelf called Flowers for Princess Fischl. At the time I assumed it was just a fantasy novel... I was so surprised to find out the main character is a real person. I could hardly believe it! She must be someone incredible to have a whole book dedicated to her.
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean About Jean
Master Jean has always been my role model, both in terms of ability and dedication. She holds herself and others to the same high standards, so if there ever comes a day when I meet with her approval, it will be the ultimate acknowledgement of all my efforts so far. Until then, there's no room for complacency!
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya About Kaeya
He's a mysterious character! He comes and goes like the wind, and is always occupied with important business. I like the fact that he delegates some of the smaller jobs to me sometimes, it's nice to feel like part of the team, you know... What do you mean "errand runner"? I don't see it like that at all! Okay, well yes, technically I run errands for him. But still, I really appreciate it!
Genshin Impact - Klee ImageKlee About Klee
I've always been curious as to how she managed to become a fully-fledged knight at such a young age. I actually went to ask her for tips once, but I'd barely started talking to her when she grabbed me by the hand and took me outside the Knights headquarters to play with bombs. I thought it was some kind of training exercise at first, but Jean found us, and we both ended up in solitary confinement...
Genshin Impact - Varka ImageVarka About Varka
At first I wanted to join his expedition party and do my part as a maid. But the Grand Master said no - it would give him more peace of mind if I stayed behind to take care of things in Mondstadt. It made me so happy to hear how much he values me! ...Okay, so apparently he said the same thing to a lot of people. But that doesn't change the fact he prizes me too!
