Genshin Impact Nahida Guide


Genshin Impact Nahida Guide

Nahida, Lesser Lord Kusanali, is known for being the god with the least experience regarding the realities of nature of all things yet, she has more wisdom than other gods. But, It did not stop Nahida from being curious about how things are. She is powered by dreams and observation, enabling her to adapt to different situations and learn how phenomena happen. 

Pros & Cons of Nahida


  • Quick CD for Skill and Elemental Burst.
  • Versatile to fit different kinds of teams.
  • Consistent Dendro infliction using Element skills
  • Elemental Mastery increases its CRIT Rate and DMG making her easier to build.


  • Despite having an advantage with her burst, it does not deal damage
  • Highly dependent on reactions and other elements to function.

Nahida Skills

Akara (Normal Attack)

Normal Attack

Deal Dendro DMG to opponents in front of her, which can be stacked up to 4 times.

Charged Attack

She requires a specific amount of stamina to deal with AoE Dendro DMG to opponents in front of her after a short casting time.

Plunging Attack

Coming for its name itself, as Nahida plunges, it damages all opponents in her path. Deals AoE Dendro DMG upon impact with the ground.

All Schemes to Know (Elemental Skill)

Unleashes Dendro karmic bonds of wood and tree from her side that deal damage to up to 8 opponents along with the Seed of Skandha. Seed of Skandha enables opponents who have been marked by it will be linked to one another for a certain distance. Nahida will unleash Tri-Karma Purification to the tied opponents dealing Dendro DMG based on her ATK and Elemental Mastery. Tri-Karma Purification can’t be staked. 

Elemental Skill reacts differently when triggered by holding. It enters an aiming mode that enables you to select a specific area with a limited number of opponents to attack. During this time, Nahida’s resistance to interruption will be increased. Like with the usual trigger, the elemental skill deals with Dendro DMG and marks opponents with the Seed of Skanda, and the sequence of attack is also the same. Aiming lasts 5 seconds and can be aimed at a maximum of eight opponents. 

Illusory Heart (Elemental Burst)

Manifests the Court of Dreams and expands the Shrine of Maya. 

The Shrine of Maya unleashes different elemental types present when it has been triggered. 

  • Pyro: The effects and damage of Tri-Karma Purification from her elemental skill, All Schemes to Know, are increased
  • Electro: Opposite to Pyro, the damage interval between Tri-Karma Purification is decreased.
  • Hydro: The Shrine of Maya’s duration is increased.

If Nahida is outside the range of the Shrine of Maya, these bonus effects will not be triggered.
