3. The Catch
Sands: Energy Recharge or ATK%
Goblet: ATK% or Electro DMG Bonus
Circlet: CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG
|Substats||CRIT DMG, CRIT Rate, Energy Recharge, ATK%|
Raiden Shogun can be used for any role in the game. Luckily, the Emblem of Severed Fate set is the best overall artifact set for her in any role!
If you have the Engulfing Lighting it is stricly better to use an Energy Recharge Mainstat for the Sands piece and an Electro Goblet.
If you don't have Engulfing Lightning, you have the option of using a combination of ER Sands and an ATK% Goblet or ATK% Sands and an Electro Goblet.
|For All Roles|
Raiden's core utility relies on using her Elemental Burst, so leveling it up first is very important. Her Elemental skill is only a minor tool for all of her roles, so it should be leveled second. Lastly, her Normal Attacks will not affect her Elemental Burst, so it should be leveled last (if at all).
2-PC: Energy Recharge +20%.
4-PC: Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.
2-PC: Elemental Mastery +80
4-PC: Within 8s of triggering an Elemental Reaction, the character equipping this will obtain buffs based on the Elemental Type of the other party members. ATK is increased by 14% for each member whose Elemental Type is the same as the equipping character, and EM is increased by 50 for every member with a different Elemental Type. Each of the buffs will count up to 3 characters. This effect can be triggered once every 8s and even when not on the field.
2-PC: Elemental Mastery +80
4-PC: The equipping character's Bloom, Hyperbloom, and Burgeon reaction DMG are increased by 40%. Additionally, after the equipping character triggers Bloom, Hyperbloom, or Burgeon, they will gain another 25% bonus to the effect mentioned prior. Each stack of this lasts 10s. Max 4 stacks simultaneously. This effect can only be triggered once per second. The character who equips this can still trigger its effects when not on the field.
We feel it's important to note here that the Emblem of Severed Fate will be the absolute best set for Raiden.
However, other artifacts such as Gilded Dreams or Paradise Lost can be a good option for an off-field Raiden where her only purpose is to trigger Aggravate or Hyperbloom Reactions.
2-PC: Energy Recharge +20%
4-PC: Using an Elemental Burst regenerates 2 Energy for all party members (excluding the wearer) every 2s for 6s. This effect cannot stack.

Bonus Stat: ATK 3.0%
Skill Effect: For every point of the entire party's combined maximum Energy capacity, the Elemental Burst DMG of the character equipping this weapon is increased by 0.12%. A maximum of 40% increased Elemental Burst DMG can be achieved this way.
