Dehya is a brawling pro and a monster on the battlefield, at least within Genshin Impact’s lore. Dehya has built up a reputation before her release for being a relatively weak character, especially compared to her fellow 5-star characters. That being said, there’s no such thing as an unviable Genshin Impact character. Dehya can be a defensive beacon for your team, protecting your other characters from taking too much damage. Otherwise, she can deal some damage of her own with her fiery fists.

Best weapons for Dehya in Genshin Impact

Dehya is a brawler-type character who scales off of both HP and Max ATK. As a result, we’ll want to try and balance both stats to increase her offensive prowess.

  • Best 5-star weapon: The Beacon of the Reed Sea is Dehya’s signature weapon, and the best Claymore to suit her in battle. This weapon provides a high amount of Crit Rate, while also increasing Dehya’s ATK and Max HP by a significant amount, thanks to the passive.
  • Best 4-star weapon: The Serpent Spine is likely Dehya’s best weapon due to the offensive utility it brings Dehya. While this weapon does not provide any Max HP buff, it does provide a sizable amount of Crit Rate and a passive that skill increases her damage output.
  • Best free-to-play weapon: The Bell, once a meme-d upon weapon as no Claymore user scaled off of Max HP before, finally found a home with Dehya. This is the only 4-star Claymore (as of this writing) to buff Max HP, and can increase Dehya’s damage even further when she is accompanied by a shield.

  • The 4-piece Tenacity of the Millelith is currently Dehya’s strongest artifact set. It provides a Max HP% bonus that is hard to obtain elsewhere and allows her to gain some offensive buffs for her team.
  • To buff Dehya’s personal damage a bit more, you can consider getting a 2-piece Tenacity of the Millelith set and combine it with a 2-piece Crimson Witch of Flames set, which will provide a Max HP buff of 20% and an increase to her Pyro damage by 15%.

Best teams for Dehya in Genshin Impact

Dehya has a limited number of solid teams in Genshin Impact so far. Her Elemental Burst does not count as Normal Attack DMG, so a traditional role where she would be paired with characters like Xingqiu or Yelan would not work.

  • Dehya / Bennett / Xiangling / Kazuha is a solid team that will aim to boost Pyro damage across the board massively. This is likely Dehya’s best team, allowing you to bring the pain through a series of massive burns.
  • Consider replacing Kazuha with Thoma for some extra defensive utility and synergy with your potential artifact or weapon selection.
