Today I heard that Kazuha would not be joining us in Genshin Impact 2.6. The result was me caving and pulling for our Divine Priestess, Kokomi. Not that I regret it. Now, let’s go over her updated build guide together.
This guide will be fully focused on SUPPORT Kokomi. While you can build her as a DPS, and have a lot of fun doing so and get some good damage out of her too, her support build can make a massive contribution to your team’s damage – and healing. It is generally considered her strongest role, so that’s what this guide will focus on.
As a support, Kokomi can provide consistent off-field hydro application and healing. You want to aim for 100% uptime on her skill, which you can maintain with enough energy recharge and using her ultimate to reset the timer on her skill.
In short: Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers at R5, which you should be able to obtain easily from gacha as a 3 star weapon. Yes, this is even better for your overall team damage than kitting out Kokomi with her signature 5 star weapon, Everlasting Moonglow. Though that would buff her personal damage and healing, she already heals plenty and the 48% attack bonus for your team should give you better overall damage in the right team compositions.
The best set for support Kokomi is the 4 piece Tenacity of Millelith set. I too was surprised that it wasn’t the Clam set, but again that works best for a damage oriented Kokomi. She will benefit from the Millelith 2 piece bonus for healing and damage, and the 4 piece bonus can be maintained 100% of the time if you correctly manage her skill – providing your team with an excellent buff.
For her circlet, you definitely want to go with a healing bonus. Her other pieces should then prioritise HP, but if you don’t have enough energy recharge you can use a timepiece with ER. Ideally you want quite a lot of ER, around 180 percent. Your substat priorities should, of course, be HP and ER.
For the moment though, I’m using a 2 piece Maiden Beloved and 2 piece Ocean-Hued Clam set. Gets the job done and I’m too lazy to farm Millelith right now.
As a healer, Kokomi is quite useful for the open world and can be slotted into most casual compositions. Kokomi shines best as a hydro enabler though, providing vaporises for pyro dps characters and freeze for cryo dps characters. She doesn’t provide quite as much hydro application as Xingqiu, though, bear in mind. Nor will she do as much off-field damage.
You’ll generally want to use Kokomi, a pyro/cryo DPS, a pyro/cryo support (matching their DPS counterpart), and an anemo unit with the viridescent set. For example, I am currently using Kokomi, Yoimiya, Bennett, and Venti, or sometimes Ayaka, Chongyun, Kokomi, and Sucrose.
While there are other, equally viable ways to build Kokomi, hopefully this F2P friendly support build guide has helped you out!
