UPDATED FOR 2.7😁!
PSA #1: Healers exist to take care of you. If your DPS gets a boo boo, they slap that flex seal on it and toss their butt back into action
PSA #2: Both Noelle’s abilities scale off DEF. I 100% guarantee you Noelle got that 6-pack body. No way in hell a girl like that can hit that hard and not pack some dense muscles bro
PSA #3: THE HEALING ONLY OCCURS IF YOU ATTACK AS NOELLE. You don’t get the heal if you swap to another character and attack. This is the only real issue with healer Noelle as she practically removes DPS uptime
IMPORTANT TIP: Just in case you didn’t read it – IT TURNS YOUR NORMAL AND CHARGED ATTACKS FROM PHYSICAL DAMAGE TO GEO DAMAGE
This is an extremely strong lifesaver HOWEVER there are 2 minor issues:
1) There is no clear indication when this is active. So if you’ve had E up already, most likely you won’t be aware this passive proc’d already
2) It does not prevent 1-shot damage frames. So if you’re at 31% HP, and a single instance of damage occurs that exceeds your remaining HP, IT WILL KILL YOU. Essentially, the passive procs when you survive the damage
PSA #4: Both of Noelle’s abilities will proc the Geo element on your character, and will drop shield crystals on the ground if there are elements around. Make sure to pick up those crystals when Noelle’s E is on CD
Talent Leveling Order: E > Q > Normal
WEAPON #1 (Recommended for MAXIMUM SLAPPAGE): Whiteblind
How do I get it D: ? – Forge (Prototype x1, Crystal Chunk x50, White Iron Chunk x50)
Whiteblind basically lets Noelle just stack DEF for free when she attacks. The additional ATK is also nice, but the concept is to attack an enemy 4 time for the 4 stacks, then use E/Q. You can also just used Charged Attack to stack it faster, since Noelle just spins
If you do want to run Noelle DPS, then Serpent Spine is a solid choice. Since Noelle’s shield prevents incoming damage, you get to keep your stacks + don’t risk the additional DMG% you take!
WEAPON #2 (Recommended for early supporting): White Iron Greatsword
How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)
Keep in mind White Iron Greatsword only heals Noelle, so it’s mainly for the DEF% scaling it provides! Otherwise, try to farm materials quickly for Whiteblind!
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for FLEX SEAL REPAIRS): Husk of Opulent Dreams
How do I get it D: ? – Slumbering Court Domain (AR 30 Locked, 20 Resin per run)
Husk of Opulent Dreams is really good for Noelle cause of 2 reasons. First being that it boosts her DEF by A TON — 30% from the 2x bonus + the 24% from the 4x bonus for a grand total of 54% DEF bonus!
Secondly, when you heal as Noelle and you have Q up you’ll be doing Geo DMG the entire time. Meaning that you won’t lose the stacks since you’re hitting enemies left and right.
ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for early utility): The Exile
How do I get it D: ? – Confront Stormterror Domain (60 Resin per run), or go steal some chests
PSA #5: 2Board, can I run Noelle DPS? Yeah sure, but to maximize it you want to have C6. There is no point running ATK stats on Noelle as DEF will provide higher damage scaling!
Substats: DEF% > DEF > ER% > CRIT values
If you want other characters let me know. Hope this helped. Bye.
