This Mika build has him use the Noblesse Oblige to further buff his teammates when he uses his Elemental Burst. Focus on providing him the required Energy Recharge that will let him use his Elemental Burst off cooldown based on your team comp.

The 2pc. effect isn't useful for Mika, but granting the bonus +20% ATK to the entire party should more than make up for it.

If you already have a party member using the Noblesse Oblige set or don't need the ATK% buff that it provides, you can instead equip Mika with an Ocean-Hued Clam artifact set for more healing.

Mika's healing is definitely not enough to let you face-tank certain attack combos, so commit to using dashes to avoid big damage when you can.

Mika Talent Priority

1st Elemental Skill
2nd Elemental Burst
3rd Normal Attack

For Talent priority, focus on increasing Mika's Elemental Skill since it improves the ATK Speed buff it provides. Next should be his Elemental Burst for more healing, while leaving his Normal Attacks for last.

You must have unlocked the Passive Talent Suppressive Barrage first.
C3 Reconnaissance Experience
Increases the Level of Skyfeather Song by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.

C6 ★★★ • Active character deals 60% more Physical CRIT DMG.

C6 for a Massive Physical DMG Buff

Mika provides a massive 60% CRIT damage boost to the Physical damage of the on-field character for 12s after using Mika's Elemental Skill. This is a massive source of damage that will be appreciated by any Physical DPS!

Should You Pull for Mika?

Is Mika Good?

Setting aside the current issues of Physical damage, Mika is a good Physical damage buffer. At C6 he can even manage to beat Bennett as a Phys damage buffer. His main role is to provide buffs to the on-field character while providing a bit of healing, a true all-in-one support role.

The only problem Mika has is not being able to act as a battery for other Cryo units and himself. If you use Mika on his own or with Eula, you will need another unit to help deal with the Energy needs of the party.

Thoughts About Mika

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Amber ImageAmber Oh! Mika's a veteran of Eula's team. When he first arrived, it was always ''Yes, Commander!'' every time he spoke to me - I guess it must have been because he saw how close I was with Eula. But then, even after I told him I was actually an Outrider, he still called me ''Ma'am''... It was so embarrassing. We have completely different responsibilities, after all. I definitely could never match his expertise in cartography.
Genshin Impact - Eula ImageEula When Mika was assigned to the Reconnaissance Company; I thought that he'd only last a few days, just like the others before him. But he surprised me. He never made a peep, but he completed all of his tasks quite admirably. He even volunteered to run errands for me, and assist with communication... Hmph... I don't know who is going around telling people that I need looking after...
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean The Grand Master placed Mika on the front line of the expedition team not simply because he met the requirements of the mission --more importantly, he was impressed by Mika's hardworking and grounded nature. From my own perspective, I feel very honored to work with someone like him.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya When I first met Mika, he seemed like the nervous type, so I decided to joke around with him a little. I didn't count on that making him even more nervous... His smile looked as if it were plastered onto his face, and in the end, he even wrote me a letter of apology. Tsk-tsk. Does taking everything so seriously run in the Schmidts' blood?
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa I do rather envy Huffman for having such a caring little brother. Mika takes care of everything around the house and even looks after him when he's drunk... Ah, how nice it must be to lounge around all day without. a care in the world... Hmm? What do you mean, I already do that? You're getting quite bold these days, aren't you, cutie?
