Raiden Shogun build recommendations
Start your rotation with Raiden's Elemental Skill to amplify your party member's Elemental Burst damage.
Recommended: Skill > Burst > 3NA + CA (3 times) > 1NA + CA
Optimal: Skill > Burst > 3NA + CA (3 times) > 1NA + CA
NA = Normal Attack, CA = Charged Attack
The recommended combo can be performed consistently even without attack speed buffs, the optimal combo while a tad stronger is also significantly more difficult to perform.
Raiden's Elemental Burst damage depends on her team's energy consumption prior to her Burst,** and her Burst **restores a comfortable amount of energy for her team (which is further amplified by her passive). This is especially convenient on teams that doesn't conflict with her element and wants the energy provision. (IE Eula, Electro, National teams, etc.). Raiden has no issues with firing her ult off cooldown after reaching about 200% Energy Recharge, but it is possible to raise it higher for better energy restoration for her team.
Regarding Weapon Choices
This list assumes that Raiden is not ran with an external buffer.
[R5] Wavebreaker's Fin is relatively equal Staff of Homa, depending on your total team burst cost.
Regarding Artifact Sets
This set acts as a low investment support oriented set. Raiden is an excellent ToTM holder since her Elemental Skill has 100% uptime and procs very easily. Do note that if your Raiden is equipping this set, then she will sacrifice her personal damage.
Regarding Main Stats Priority
Raiden's main stat priority for Sands and Goblet entirely depends on the substats, whether she has external buffs, and which weapon she is running.
