Use Gale Blade to Launch Enemies


Gale Blade Can Pull and Push Enemies

Dandelion Breeze For Burst Healing and Damage


Elemental Burst: Dandelion Breeze

Jean's Elemental Burst, Dandelion Breeze, sets up a lare Anemo AoE provides heavy heals over time and damage to enemies entering or exiting the field. Since Jean's healing ability scales with ATK, her elemental burst and innate healing ability to heal herself and the party with normal attacks gives Jean Tank like qualities in solo play and especially in multiplayer.

Jeans Passive Talent, Guiding Breeze, grants a 12% chance of obtaining double the expected number of items when cooking recovery food. This further boosts Jeans overall party utility.

>>7 hi is battle pass weapon good for her?

7 Anonymous9 days

>>3 That's just a straight DPS build with a different artifact set, which is a bad combo. If you really want a proper healer DPS build, you should build Crit Rate - ATK % - ATK % to maximize your heals on top of getting sustainable crits. Using Anemo/Phys goblet is completely favored towards deal damage and does nothing to her heals, whereas ATK % provides to both her damage and heals.
