When it hits an opponent, Eula gains a stack of Grimheart that stacks up to 2 times. These stacks can only be gained once every 0.3s.

Wielding her sword, Eula consumes all the stacks of Grimheart and lashes forward, dealing AoE Cryo DMG to opponents in front of her.

Each consumed stack of Grimheart will be converted into an Icewhirl Brand that deals Cryo DMG to nearby opponents.

Glacial Illumination
Glacial Illumination
Elemental Burst

Brandishes her greatsword, dealing Cryo DMG to nearby opponents and creating a Lightfall Sword that follows her around for a duration of up to 7s.
While present, the Lightfall Sword increases Eula's resistance to interruption. When Eula's own Normal Attack, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Burst deal DMG to opponents, they will charge the Lightfall Sword, which can gain an energy stack once every 0.1s.
Once its duration ends, the Lightfall Sword will descend and explode violently, dealing Physical DMG to nearby opponents.
This DMG scales on the number of energy stacks the Lightfall Sword has accumulated.
If Eula leaves the field, the Lightfall Sword will explode immediately.

Physical DPS Build

Eula is the best On-Field Physical DPS due to her fast normal attacks, built-in Physical shred, interrupt resistance, and massive scaling on her burst. However, she has to rely on a battery to recharge her Burst, and has to deal with extended amounts of downtime.

Talent Priority

Normal Attack = Burst > Skill
Eula will spend most of her field time doing normal attacks while recharging or stacking up her burst. Both should be leveled up to increase her damage output. Her skill is also worth leveling up since the shred also scales with level.

Stat Priority

Main stats: ATK/Physical DMG/Crit
Substats: Crit/ER/ATK
Eula's burst is very expensive, so she requires a decent amount of ER from substats. Her ER needs depends if there are batteries on the team who help recharge her burst.

Weapon Weapons
Best Weapons

Eula's signature and best weapon, specifically made for her.

Song of Broken Pines
Physical DMG Bonus
Star Star Star Star Star
Rebel's Banner Hymn
A part of the "Millennial Movement" that wanders amidst the winds.

Increases ATK by 16~32%, and when Normal or Charged Attacks hit opponents, the character gains a Sigil of Whispers. This effect can be triggered once every 0.3s. When you possess four Sigils of Whispers, all of them will be consumed and all nearby party members will obtain the "Millennial Movement: Banner-Hymn" effect for 12s. "Millennial Movement: Banner-Hymn" increases Normal ATK SPD by 12~24% and increases ATK by 20~40%. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Whispers for 20s.

Of the many effects of the "Millennial Movement", buffs of the same type will not stack.

Solid 5★ options that provide a huge ATK increase. Recommended if you do not own Song of Broken Pines as the DMG output is very similar.

Wolfish Tracker
Increases ATK by 20~40%. On hit, attacks against opponents with less than 30% HP increase all party members' ATK by 40~80% for 12s. Can only occur once every 30s.
Golden Majesty
Increases Shield Strength by 20~40%. Scoring hits on opponents increases ATK by 4~8% for 8s. Max 5 stacks. Can only occur once every 0.3s. While protected by a shield, this ATK increase effect is increased by 100%.

These 4★ weapons also provide a ton of damage to Eula especially at higher refinements.

Serpent Spine
Star Star Star Star
Every 4s a character is on the field, they will deal 6~10% more DMG and take 3~2% more DMG. This effect has a maximum of 5 stacks and will not be reset if the character leaves the field, but will be reduced by 1 stack when the character takes DMG.
Star Star Star Star
Watatsumi Wavewalker
For every point of the entire party's combined maximum Energy capacity, the Elemental Burst DMG of the character equipping this weapon is increased by 0.12~0.24%. A maximum of 40~80% increased Elemental Burst DMG can be achieved this way.

Eula appreciates the Crit DMG and can somewhat use the passive as her Skill gives her some extra DEF.

Gokadaiou Otogibanashi
DEF is increased by 28~56%. Normal and Charged Attack DMG is increased by 40~80% of DEF.
Weapon Variations

Skyward Pride's ER helps out Eula's burst uptime a lot. This allows for more Crit/ATK substats instead of ER substats or battery dependence.

Skyward Pride
Energy Recharge
Star Star Star Star Star
Sky-ripping Dragon Spine
Increases all DMG by 8~16%. After using an Elemental Burst, Normal or Charged Attack, on hit, creates a vacuum blade that does 80~160% of ATK as DMG to opponents along its path. Lasts for 20s or 8 vacuum blades.

Very powerful F2P weapon, if not the best. It provides lots of ATK and burst DMG buff but it is unfortunately an event-exclusive weapon.

Oceanic Victory
Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 12~24%. When Elemental Burst hits opponents, there is a 100% chance of summoning a huge onrush of tuna that charges and deals 100~200% ATK as AoE DMG. This effect can occur once every 15s.
F2P Options

The Blackcliff Slasher performs very well due to its Crit DMG and ATK buff from its passive. Although the passive is powerful especially with refinements and stacks, it can be inconsistent since stacks cannot be obtained when fighting a single tanky enemy.

Press the Advantage
After defeating an opponent, ATK is increased by 12~24% for 30s. This effect has a maximum of 3 stacks, and the duration of each stack is independent of the others.

Great F2P weapon for Eula as it provides a lot of ATK. The extra attack from its passive gains a lot of damage from refinements and can end up as a mini-nuke.

On hit, Normal or Charged Attacks have a 50% chance to deal an additional 240~480% ATK DMG to opponents within a small AoE. Can only occur once every 15s.

Eula's worst F2P weapon as it has much weaker stats and an underwhelming passive. This only gets a mention since it can be obtained without forging.

Snow-Tombed Starsilver
Physical DMG Bonus
Star Star Star Star
Frost Burial
Hitting an opponent with Normal and Charged Attacks has a 60~100% chance of forming and dropping an Everfrost Icicle above them, dealing 80~140% AoE ATK DMG. Opponents affected by Cryo are dealt 200~360% ATK DMG instead by the icicle. Can only occur once every 10s.
Artifact Artifacts
Best Set

4PC Pale Flame will offer the most damage but only if you are able to maintain stacks consistently, which means that you should only use Hold-Skill right before her burst ends.

2 Physical DMG Bonus +25%.
4 When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, ATK is increased by 9% for 7s. This effect stacks up to 2 times and can be triggered once every 0.3s. Once 2 stacks are reached, the 2-set effect is increased by 100%.

Temporary replacement

If you're still farming for 4pc Pale Flame, you can use this combination temporarily. It offers great damage since it provides a constant 50% Phys DMG buff and is only slightly weaker than 4PC Pale Flame.

Early Game (Pre-AR 45)

This set provides a great amount of Crit Rate, which is very helpful. It's also easy to get as it's dropped by Elite monsters and Bosses.

2 CRIT Rate +12%.
4 When HP is below 70%, CRIT Rate increases by an additional 24%.
