Nahida Quick TL;DR Team Comp Guide

Nahida (literally an iPad kid… she’s all tech’d out)

She literally dreamed of a dream where she dreamed she was having a dream… What the…

Element: Dendro

Weapon: Catalyst

Pros:

24/7 Dendro procsInsane self-buffsExtremely low CDs
Has EM as hidden statMultipliers benefit from 2 statsMassive AoE
Extremely spammable burstEasy to gear/playNot reliant on constellations

Cons:

Hold E can be interruptedVery squishy/prone to get hitHeavily reaction reliant
Requires some team composition for Q buffAscension materials can be annoying to farm

PSA #1: Nahida is definitely one of the best reaction enablers out so far, with her E having zero downsides. While her most known comp is The Nilou-Bloom nuke comp, you can also slot her in a lot more comps. Here’s a really fun one below:

Who to take (alternatives explained below!):

Kazuha
  • E is an extremely consistent AoE group CC + insane energy battery
  • Q can infuse with other elements, providing constant element application to Nahida’s E to react with
  • Can run 4x Viridescent to help shred enemy RES for your main/sub DPS carries (non-Nahida) + provide EM
  • CAN BE REPLACED BY A PYRO FOR E DMG OR SUCROSE FOR EM BUFFING + TTDS
Raiden
  • Raiden’s E is one of the best Electro enablers in-game, and triggers off Nahida’s Tri-Karma procs
  • Q serves as reliable burst/main DPS potential for nuking tankier targets + Nahida’s Q can hypercharge her Raiden’s Q stacks
  • Can turn Nahida into a sniper rifle using Hold E + allows Tri-Karma procs to trigger more often
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH FISHCL OR YAE MIKO FOR ALTERNATIVE BURST POTENTIAL
Kokomi
  • E provides a stationary heal that also applies Hydro to nearby enemies causing Bloom
  • Her Q turns her into a potential on-field DPS in-case of DPS downtime
  • Can swap to Kokomi to NA to generate more Bloom reactions from Tri-Karma procs
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH MONA/BARBARA OR NILOU FOR BLOOM NUKE

PSA #2: The team above is really fun and has a lot of synergy between all members. The rotation is Raiden E > Nahida E > Kokomi E > repeat + Kazuha E/Q whenever possible. I highly advise NOT taking a Pyro member since Burn reaction isn’t that strong compared to others. Only take Pyro if you’re running a Pyro-Dendro comp.

Great flex slot alternatives:

  • Pyro Options – Bennett is a great choice for heals, ATK buff, and his Q which constantly applies Pyro to on-field enemies. Yoimiya can work with Nahida, but she benefits a lot more from other enablers like Yelan or Raiden.
  • Sucrose/Venti – Sucrose is a prime EM mule, able to donate tons of EM to other team members while also granting the TTDS 48% ATK buff. Venti is a great AoE CC with his Q and amazing battery. Both can run 4x VV to shred enemy RES for your main DPS as well.
  • Fishcl – Her E is great with synergizing with Nahida’s E for it’s frequent procs. The upside is that even if Oz aims at the wrong unit, Nahida’s E will 100% mark them due to it’s outrageous range/hitbox.
  • Yae Miko – Yae is like a more consistent version of Fishcl, while also allowing a burst DPS option with her Q like Raiden does. Only downside is that you have to constantly main E on the field.
  • Mona – Her E works great for 2 reasons: 1) enemies will be taunted by E and group themselves and 2) it applies Hydro allowing for massive Bloom reactions. Her Q is also great for momentary nuke.
  • Barbara – Not the best option, but can still achieve what Kokomi can. Just make sure to stand next to enemies to apply Wet from her heal ring around your character (ticks 5 times).
  • Nilou – Arguably the best Hydro applicator but only 1 thing: make sure to run a Hydro-Dendro comp only for the mega Bloom nuke.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK QUESTIONS BELOW! I’ll try my best to respond as I know some players may not have ANY of the characters mentioned.

Hope this helped. Bye.

I spend too much time filling out spreadsheets for incoherent data, but at least I can turn them into guides :P

  1. My current roster allows me this team: Nahida, Raiden, Sucrose. Last slot I’m having a problem. I don’t have a good hydro roster and aside from my 4*s, my only 5* for it is Mona. Kinda want a healer last slot for my peace of mind, but idk how huge of a performance drop it’ll be if I put Barbara instead of Mona for the hydro slot. OR, if I get lucky, I can try and pull for Childe but idk if he’s gonna be any better.

    • You could run Barbara for the heal. I actually run a similar comp of Heizou, Kazuha, Nahida, Barbara just to focus on getting off as many blooms as possible.

  2. Since my Kokomi + Kazuha is locked in my Ayaka freeze comp with Shenhe, i decided to go with Nahida / Yelan / XQ / Kuki, Nahida being the driver. Another fun one i went with was Cyno / Kuki / Yelan / Nahida, but it wasn’t as fast as the XQ/Yelan comp for abyss, probably due to Cyno not being built EM and stealing Hyperblooms. Kuki has c6 with key and full gilded EM setup.

    • Yeah, pumping out dendro cores fast seems to be a more favorite method for Dendro comps atm. It’s mainly due to how strong they are for Abyss as well currently, but Burgeon and quicken/haste damage is nothing to laugh at!
