Genshin Impact Eula build

Genshin Impact's Eula can teach us some real Favonius bladework with the right build, so here's the weapons and artifacts we recommend for her.

Genshin Impact’s Eula is an elegant five-star cryo claymore wielder from Mondstadt. Alienated due to her being a descendant of the tyrannical Lawrence Clan, Eula can be somewhat frosty at first, but has cut ties to the clan and now acts as the captain of the Reconnaissance Company with the Knights of Favonius. She’s a powerful, unique fighter, so let’s dive into the best Genshin Eula build and see if we can warm her up a little.

If you’re just getting started with Genshin, or have lapsed since the last update, we’ve got a wealth of content to help you get (re)started.

Let’s see how we can make Genshin Impact’s Eula one of the hardest hitters in the game.

What’s the best Genshin Impact Eula build?

Genshin’s Eula is an incredibly strong cryo DPS unit capable of dishing out high-impact physical damage with her claymore and high burst damage every rotation. She takes some investment to reach her full potential, but her ideal team comps are relatively cheap to build and don’t necessarily require units like Genshin Impact’s Bennett or Genshin Impact’s Xingqiu in order to work.

She has decent AoE capabilities, and her combo flow is fluid and fun to use, but due to her backloaded skill set her output can be pretty inconsistent at times. It relies on a mixture of player skill, luck, and the combat situation. As she’s more of a physical damage dealer, she can also be a weaker choice against specific enemies with elemental weaknesses and physical resistances, making Eula teams quite situational.

However, with the right level of attention, she’s a very fun unit that can definitely pay off her investments. Her constellations are also crowning jewels, with her C6 offering amazing benefits, but her C1 and C3 also give damage bonuses.

What are the best Genshin Impact Eula weapons?

The Song of Broken Pines is Eula’s signature weapon and, unsurprisingly, remains her best-in-slot option. It offers an extremely high base attack and a great physical damage bonus. Its passive boosts her attack % and attack speed, benefitting her even further.

The Wolf’s Gravestone is a strong second-place choice – this much-loved weapon boosts her attack % and can out-damage Song of Broken Pines if you manage to proc its passive. However, the passive’s condition doesn’t really suit Eula’s playstyle and can be hard to proc before the completion of her burst, so it doesn’t quite outdo her signature weapon.

Skyward Pride is an interesting alternate, as Eula can make full use of its passive. However, you should only go with this one if you need the energy recharge it provides.

For four-star options, your best option is Serpent Spine. Its high crit rate and universal damage buff suit Eula wonderfully, but it’s a highly contested weapon among other claymore wielders. If you’ve got nothing better, though, you can instead go with Prototype Archaic.

Weapon Effect How to obtain
Song of Broken Pines (five-star) Bonus effect: Increases physical damage
Skill: Increases attack by 16%, when normal or charged attacks hit, Eula gains a Sigil of Whispers. This can be triggered once every 0.3 seconds. When you have four Sigils of Whispers, they will be consumed and all party members will obtain the Millennial Movement: Banner-Hymn effect for 12 seconds. Millennial Movement increases normal attack speed by 12% and attack damage by 20%. When triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Whispers for 20 seconds

Artifact stat recommendations

Overall, Eula requires about 140-150% energy recharge if you want to use her burst off-cooldown. Aside from that, you need plenty of attack% and crit. In regards to crit rate and crit damage, you should aim for a 1:2 ratio, with her crit rate hitting at least 70% before buffs, and her crit damage hitting at least 150% or 200% with a crit weapon.

Main stats: 

  • Sands: Attack %
  • Circlet: Crit rate/crit damage
  • Goblet: Physical damage bonus


  • Energy recharge
  • Crit damage
  • Crit rate
  • Attack%
