Best Arlecchino build in Genshin Impact

Here's everything you need to know to make Father powerful.

Arlecchino, Genshin Impact's Fourth Fatui Harbinger, is expected to be released as a playable character in the Version 4.6 update. If you're interested in pre-farming weapons and Artifacts for her, here's everything you need to know in advance.

Keep in mind that the information below is based on leaks, and changes to her kit are still happening in the beta test. Her best build upon release may differ from the suggestions below.

Best weapons for Arlecchino in Genshin Impact

Arlecchino is leaked to be a polearm user who demands on-field time. While there are a ton of great DPS polearms in Genshin Impact, it's important to know that Arlecchino benefits from having a Bond of Life, so choosing a weapon that can apply this effect is especially beneficial for her.

  • Crimson Moon's Semblance (best five-star, signature weapon) - This weapon is Arlecchino's absolute best-in-slot as it makes it much easier to trigger and increase the amount of HP locked through the Bond of Life. In doing so, you can strengthen Arlecchino's overall DMG and guarantee a 100% uptime for Pyro infusion across her Normal and Charged Attacks.
    • The weapon's leaked effect is as follows: Grants a Bond of Life equal to 25% of Max HP when a Charged Attack hits an opponent. This effect can be triggered up to once every 14 seconds. In addition, when the equipping character has a Bond of Life, they gain a 12% DMG Bonus; if the value of the Bond of Life is greater than or equal to 30% of Max HP, they gain an additional 20% DMG Bonus.
  • R5 White Tassel (best three-star) - The White Tassel is a legendary three-star option that's perfect for new players. It offers a Normal Attack DMG boost, which helps drive Arlecchino's DMG upward. However, R5 is absolutely necessary, and I recommend only using it as a temporary weapon until you've obtained a better one.

Best Artifacts & substats for Arlecchino in Genshin Impact

Version 4.6 has been leaked to introduce two new Artifact sets, one of which will be Arlecchino's best-in-slot pick.

  • Four-piece Fragment of Harmonic Whimsy (best-in-slot) - Based on leaked information, this set may offer an ATK percent boost and a DMG boost whenever the wearer's Bond of Life increases or decreases. It's a perfect fit for Arlecchino's kit, which depends entirely on her Bond of Life.
    • This Artifact set is expected to be released alongside Arlecchino in Version 4.6, so it's impossible to pre-farm.
  • Gladiator's Finale - A great alternative that offers an ATK boost and a Normal Attack DMG boost when the wielder is a polearm user, among others.
  • Two-piece combos - While I strongly recommend using Arlecchino's best-in-slot set, these are some two-piece combos you can temporarily combine.
    • Gladiator's Finale (+18% ATK)
    • Echoes of an Offering (+18% ATK)
    • Shimenawa's Reminiscence (+18% ATK)
    • Crimson Witch of Flames (+15% Pyro DMG Bonus)

Arlecchino's best Artifact substats

Arlecchino is a DPS unit, so she pairs well with typical ATK and CRIT stars. She will need some Energy Recharge to enable her to trigger her Burst on every rotation. Her ER requirement is speculated to be approximately 120 to 160% based on your team.

  • Sands: ATK
  • Goblet: Pyro DMG Bonus
  • Circlet: CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG
  • Substats: ATK, CRIT, and some ER to reach your target

Genshin Impact Arlecchino Talent upgrade priority

When upgrading Arlecchino's Talents, I recommend doing so in this order of priority:

  1. Normal Attack: Invitation to a Beheading
  2. Elemental Burst: Balemoon Rising
  3. Elemental Skill: All is Ash

Most of Arlecchino's DMG will come from her Normal Attack, which can gain Pyro Infusion by manipulating the Bond of Life. The Elemental Burst and Skill are primarily used to apply the Blood Debt (used to obtain Bonds of Life) and for self-healing.

Best team for Arlecchino in Genshin Impact

As Genshin Impact allows for so much flexibility in playstyle, there are plenty of ways you can slot Arlecchino into different teams, so I suggest experimenting with your roster and taking your time to find her perfect party.

However, some easy-to-use team templates suggested by beta players are as follows:

  • Vape team - A suggested team comp would be to pair Arlecchino with Yelan or Xingqiu, Bennett, and either Kazuha or Sucrose.
  • Overloaded team - You can opt to bring in Electro units with a team that consists of Arlecchino, Chevreuse, Bennett, and either Fischl, Raiden Shogun, or Yae Miko.
  • Chevreuse support - It's possible to experiment with other teammates for Arlecchino based on your preferred playstyle, such as adding in a shield support or a non-Bennett healer for survivability. However, I strongly recommend using Chevreuse as a support, as her buffs and playstyle are compatible with Arlecchino.
