There are a lot of team comps that you can make in Genshin Impact with Nilou. We recommend team comps that we think are best for Nilou. There are a lot of different characters, and there is a high chance that you do not have some of them. So you should create your team comps, test them out, and see what is best for you and your playstyle. With that, you will become better at the game, and you will know how your team works.

Nilou Skills Talents

Dance of Samser: Normal Attack

Normal Attack
Performs up to 3 consecutive sword strikes.

Charged Attack
Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to perform a twirling slash.

Plunging Attack
Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Dance of Haftkarsvar: Elemental Skill

Enters the Pirouette state, dealing Hydro DMG to nearby opponents based on Nilou’s Max HP. While she is in the Pirouette state, Nilou’s Normal Attacks and Elemental Attacks will cause her to enter the Sword Dance and Whirling Steps stances respectively, causing DMG she deals to be converted to Hydro DMG that cannot be overridden and that is considered Elemental Skill DMG.

In these stances, Nilou’s third dance step will end Pirouette, and has the following effects:

  • Sword Dance: unleashes a Luminous Illusion that deals Hydro DMG to opponents it touches and grants Nilou the Lunar Prayer effect. This effect converts Nilou’s Normal Attacks into Sword Dance techniques, and her final hit will unleash a Luminous Illusion.
  • Whirling Steps: Nilou unleashes a Whirling Water Wheel that deals AoE Hydro DMG and creates a Tranquility Aura that follows your active character around and applies Wet to opponents within its AoE.

Nilou is unable to perform Charged Attacks when under the effect of Pirouette or Lunar Prayer. These effects will be removed once she leaves the field or exits these states.

Dance of Abzendegi Distant Dreams, Listening Spring: Elemental Burst

Begins the dance of faraway dreams and springs that hear, causing a Lotus of Distant Waters to bloom, dealing Hydro DMG based on Nilou’s Max HP and applying the Lingering Aeon effect to all opponents hit. After an interval, opponents affected by Lingering Aeon will take Hydro DMG.

Nilou Passive Talents

Court of Dancing Petals: First Ascension Passive

When all characters in the party are either Dendro or Hydro, and there is at least one Dendro character and one Hydro character, the third dance step of Nilou’s Dance of Haftkarsvar will grant all nearby characters the Golden Chalice’s Bounty for 30s upon its completion. Characters under the effect of Golden Chalice’s Bounty will increase the Elemental Mastery of all nearby characters by 60 for 10s whenever they are hit by Dendro attacks. Also, triggering the Bloom reaction will create Bountiful Cores instead of Dendro Cores. Such Cores will burst very quickly after being created, and they have larger AoEs.

Bountiful Cores cannot trigger Hyperbloom or Burgeon, and they share an upper numerical limit with Dendro Cores. Bountiful Core DMG is considered DMG dealt by Dendro Cores produced by Bloom. Should the party not meet the conditions for this Passive Talent, any existing Golden Chalice’s Bounty effects will be canceled.

Dreamy Dance of Aeons: Fourth Ascension Passive

Each 1,000 points of Nilou’s Max HP above 30,000 will cause the DMG dealt by Bountiful Cores created by characters affected by Golden Chalice’s Bounty to increase by 7%. The maximum increase in Bountiful Core DMG that can be achieved this way is 300%.

When Perfect Cooking is achieved on Food with Adventure-related effects, there is a 12% chance to obtain double the product.
