    • ER stats, A4 and Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers
  • Rare Def shred
  • Infamous as her animations/cast times can feel long

Burst Support Build

The goal is to maximize Burst uptime. Her A4 talent provides the rare Def shred debuff. Ideally you just swap into Lisa cast your ult then swap out to your carry to give the Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers buff.

Talent Priority

Burst > Skill Leveling up her talents isn't a priority, since her utility comes from her passives and weapon selection rather than her damage. Even in optimized compositions, her damage is noticeable but not relevant.

Stat Priority

Main stats: ER/"Any"/"Any"
Substats: ER, ATK Crit
Technically Electro Goblet and Crit circlets are ideal but as a low investment support you only need to care about her ER sands.

Weapon Weapons
Endgame option

Ideally you want to have her Burst up as often possible, meaning the HP substat is not as useful.

When switching characters, the new character taking the field has their ATK increased by 24~48% for 10s. This effect can only occur once every 20s.

Energy options

Favonius Codex has an excellent passive that is usually worth the crit rate investment. THe ER substat also helps the main challenge towards building Lisa.

Favonius Codex
Energy Recharge
Star Star Star Star
CRIT hits have a 60~100% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12~6s.

Prototype Amber is only practical with high refines as the energy refund is small. It's a very good healing option.

Using an Elemental Burst regenerates 4~6 Energy every 2s for 6s. All party members will regenerate 4~6% HP every 2s for this duration.
Artifact Artifacts
Best sets

Lisa values the utility that 4pc set bonuses can provide to your party rather than specific stats she would gain from set bonuses.

2 Elemental Burst DMG +20%.
4 Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.
