    Genshin Impact Alhaitham Build Guide: Alhaitham Playstyle

    Alhaitham is a DPS in the field who can apply Dendro reliably. Due to his time in the field, he is amazing at applying the propagation reaction, so it combines well with Electro supports. Alhaitham’s playstyle revolves around Chisel-Light Mirrors, floating diamonds that spawn from using his elemental ability.

    These convert all of their auto attacks into Dendro damage and will also deal additional Dendro projection damage based on the number of Chisel-Light Mirrors spawned (max three). Unlocking his passive talent will allow you to create mirrors of chiseled light using charged and sinking attacks on a cooldown. Chisel-Light mirrors also affect the number of hits your Elemental Burst can land.

    For a Spread DPS build, Alhaitham requires Elemental Domain Arenasa Dendro’s Chalice of Damageand a Crit Rate/Damage Ring. For sub-stats, you should aim to increase his energy recharge, followed by critical/damage rate, attack, and elemental mastery as needed. You will need anywhere from 120 to 170 percent energy recharge depending on your team and your preferred rotation.

    This build runs best with the following sets of artifacts:

    • Golden Dreams (best in slots) – increases elemental mastery and attack, a perfect match for Alhaitham. This set works even better when another Dendro teammate is using Deepwood Memories.
    • memories of the thicket – increases Dendro’s damage and decreases Dendro’s resistance of enemies, only one team member should have this set.
    • Two-piece outfit alternatives – Combine two pieces from each of the two sets below to increase Dendro’s elemental mastery or damage if you can’t get good secondary stats for the above sets.
      • Golden Dreams
      • tramp company
      • flower of paradise lost
      • memories of the thicket
