Mika is a 4-star character in Genshin Impact and a new Cryo healer that possesses a unique buff. Mika wields a Polearm as his weapon, giving him various options to help him support the team. He doesn’t do much for damage but can empower Physical damage dealers and auto-attackers, two classes that are somewhat neglected in the meta right now.
As a 4-star character, Mika can be pulled on any Limited Event Wish, Limited Weapon, and Standard Banner. He may periodically receive a “rate-up” on a Limited Event Wish banner, which increases his drop rate and makes it more likely you’ll pull him. Mika has numerous viable build paths, so follow this guide to learn which weapons and artifacts will best suit him at any given opportunity.
What are the best weapons for Mika in Genshin Impact?
The Favonius Lance is Mika’s best weapon. His Attack Speed bonus buff is unconditional, so we don’t need to fish for any stats to increase the buff. Instead, all Mika needs is to ensure his Elemental Burst can be cast frequently. Therefore, the Favonius Lance is used to give Mika some more Energy Recharge and provide energy particles for his teammates.
If you have enough Energy Recharge, you can potentially consider another weapon like the Black Tassel to increase Mika’s Max HP and increase his healing output. Other Energy Recharge weapons like the Prototype Starglitter are also good choices.
What are the best artifacts for Mika in Genshin Impact?
The 4-piece Noblesse Oblige allows Mika to provide some more buffs with a 20% ATK buff to his team after casting his Elemental Burst. The 2-piece bonus on this set is useless, as Mika’s Elemental Burst does no damage. But the ATK buff is significant and can further increase Mika’s support capabilities.
The 4-piece Ocean Hued Clam set is his next best option, increasing his healing output significantly while also giving him some slight DPS potential.
What are the best teams for Mika in Genshin Impact?
Eula / Fischl / Mika / Rosaria is a simple team that revolves around buffing Eula. Fischl provides the opportunity to apply Superconduct and reduce Physical resistance for enemies. Mika provides sustains and buffs, while Rosaria provides some extra Cryo DMG and further Physical DMG buffs after some constellations.
Mika is tailored to support Physical DPS characters, especially at high constellations. However, Physical DPS characters are rare, with the only other character being Razor. There are still some niche Physical damage builds for characters like Keqing, Zhongli, and Fischl, and Mika may help you take a niche team to something more viable.
