Comprehensive Guide of Mona – Genshin Impact

Welcome! This Guide will cover every aspect of Mona build in Genshin Impact. Talent, Weapons, Artifacts, Constellations, Team Comps, etc.

Mona Overview – Genshin Impact Guide

“Mona” is a Hydro support character that uses her skills to apply Hydro Elemental Aura and increase the team’s damage output. Her elemental skill taunts enemies and draws fire, while her elemental burst can significantly increase the team’s damage output, making her a valuable addition to many team compositions. Additionally, her Alternate Sprint provides a unique and enjoyable gameplay experience in the open world.

Elemental Burst > Elemental Skill > Normal Attack

Mona’s core mechanism is to use her elemental burst to put enemies into the “Omen” state, which increases the damage dealt to the enemy when attacked by team characters. The increase in damage is related to the level of her elemental burst, so it is recommended to prioritize upgrading the elemental burst level, followed by upgrading the elemental skill level based on personal resources. It is not recommended to upgrade her normal attack for non-battlefield gameplay. (Recommended levels are 1/6/8 or higher.)

Normal Attack

Genshin Impact Guide Mona Normal Attack

The normal attack has a total of four attacks with four instances of damage, with the third attack causing Mona to move backwards and having a certain post-attack animation.

The normal attack can apply weak Hydrot Elemental Aura (1 Gauge Unit, lasts for 9.5 seconds), and follows the rule of “applying Elemental Aura every other attack on the same enemy within 2.5 seconds”.

Each of Mona’s charged attacks can apply weak Hydro Elemental Aura.

Elemental Skill (E)

Genshin Impact Guide Mona elemental skill

After the phantom is released, it will continue to emit four attacks, applying weak Hydro Elemental Aura. When the final attack hits an enemy, it will produce 3-4 Hydro particles, even if Mona is off-screen.

The phantom has no upper limit on its lifespan, unlike Ganyu’s Ice Lotus.

Only one of Mona’s released phantoms can exist at the same time. If she uses the Sacrificial Fragments weapon to release it again, the previous phantom will immediately break.

Elemental Burst (Q)

Genshin Impact Guide Mona elemental burst

Basic Mechanism

The bubbles applied by the elemental burst are weak Hydro Elemental Auras, and when they burst, they apply strong Hydro Elemental Auras (2 gauge units, lasts for 12 seconds).

The process of “Elemental Burst”

◆Phase 1: After using Elemental Burst, it will apply Hydro elemental Elemental Aura to enemies (enemies will be in a bubble state, and the bubble effect will produce “Omen” effect), but it will not cause Hydro elemental damage immediately.

Phase 2: When the bubble is subjected to a strong resistance-reducing attack or when its duration ends and it bursts, the bubble will apply Hydro Elemental Aura again and cause Hydro elemental damage (bubble damage).

The “Illusory Bubble” mechanism

The maximum duration of the bubble can reach 13 seconds (8 seconds is the maximum duration of the bubble, and 5 seconds is the residual time of the “Omen” effect after the bubble bursts).

After Mona’s first Hydro Elemental Aura of her Elemental Burst ends, there will be a cooldown of about 2 seconds before she can attach the second Hydro Elemental Aura. Therefore, when you need to coordinate with the burst of the bubble to deal high damage from reaction, you need to wait for about 2 seconds after the first Hydro Elemental Aura is released.

The method to prolong the duration of the bubble is to first apply Ice Elemental Aura to the enemy, and then use Elemental Burst on the enemy to Frozen them.

The damage bonus mechanism of “Omen”

Genshin Impact Guide Mona DMG formula

The effect of “Omen” belongs to the damage bonus interval and is calculated by adding to the character’s elemental/physical damage bonus. It is not displayed in the character’s panel.

Additional Information:

The Basic Attribute is determined by the different attribute modules in the character skill description, which defaults to ATK, and the others are DEF, HP, and Elemental Mastery, etc.

Catalyze reaction affects the “base multiplier range,” which adds to the product of “basic attribute x multiplier.”

The basic coefficient of Damage Bonus and Critical Damage is 1, and the coefficient sum is “1 + other damage bonus/critical damage percentages.”

Only attacks that trigger Amplification Reactions (vaporize/melt) will have additional amplification coefficients, which default to 1.

Defense coefficient is related to the level of the character and enemies, and Resistance coefficient is related to the enemy’s resistance.

Alternate Sprint

Genshin Impact Guide Mona Alternate Sprint

While sprinting, you can still trigger reactions with other elemental Elemental Auras on enemies, and triggering amplification reactions will not cause damage, while triggering transformative reactions will only produce reaction damage.

Weak Hydro Elemental Aura can be applied while sprinting.

Under the same stamina, Mona’s sprinting can cover a longer distance compared to regular sprinting, making it a better experience for exploring the vast world.

Passive Talent

Mona’s Best Weapon Choice – Genshin Impact Mona Guide

Support Weapons

Thrilling Tales of Dragon SlayersPrototype AmberFavonius Codex

DPS Weapons

The WidsithOathworn EyeSkyward AtlasLost Prayer to the Sacred Winds

Weapon selection explanation

▲Mona is a support character who mainly increases damage through her elemental burst, so the requirements for weapons are not high. Weapon selection should focus more on energy recharge and functionality, but weapons that increase Mona’s own output can also be considered.

When paired with a conventional attack character (such as Ganyu or Ayaka), consider using the Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers to increase the character’s output.

When there are no other healing characters on the team, consider using the Prototype Amber for dealing with high pressure and bleeding environments.

If you want to improve Mona’s own output, prioritize damage weapons such as the The Widsith, Oathworn Eye, Skyward Atlas, and the Lost Prayer to the Sacred Anemos.

Mona’s Best Artifact Recommendation- Genshin Impact Mona Guide

Recommended Artifact – Genshin Impact Mona Guide

Genshin Impact Guide Mona artifact

Substats Priority – Genshin Impact Mona Guide

Energy Recharge > Crit Rate > Crit DMG > ATK% > Others

Artifact selection and attribute explanation – Genshin Impact Mona Guide

For the purpose of functional support, prioritize using the Noblesse Oblige 4-piece set, which stacks more energy recharge to promote the accumulation of elemental burst energy, with a recommended energy recharge of at least 220%.

If you are focusing on the damage of elemental burst, prioritize using the Emblem of Severed Fate 4-piece set, and stack double crit and energy recharge.

In transitional or special team compositions, consider using The Exile 4-piece set to improve the overall team rotation.

Mona’s Constellation Effects Guide in Genshin Impact

Mona’s Constellation – Genshin Impact Guide

Genshin Impact Guide Mona constellation

Explanation of Constellation Effects – Genshin Impact Mona Guide

After unlocking the first constellation, the damage of reactions against enemies in the Omen state is increased, which mainly benefits vaporize teams (with Hu Tao as the primary choice); in addition, the duration of Frozen is increased by 15%, which is a good improvement for teams that Frozen Team.

After unlocking the second constellation, there is a chance for an extra charged attack when a normal attack hits. Since Mona is not primarily a normal/charged attack character, this constellation’s improvement is relatively small in most situations.

After unlocking the fourth constellation, the critical hit rate of attacks against enemies in the Omen state is increased, which can maximize the team’s output efficiency in freezing teams.

After unlocking the sixth constellation, the damage of the next charged attack is increased after alternate sprint. Unless you are playing a charged Heavy attack playstyle, the improvement of this constellation is relatively small.

Overall, Mona’s mechanics at C0 are already quite complete, using elemental burst as a means of increasing the team’s output. For constellations, they mainly optimize Mona’s gameplay. The improvements from the first and fourth constellations are good, but they are not key transformative constellations, and the overall strength of constellations is relatively flat.

Mona’s Best Team Comps – Genshin Impact Guide

Frozen Team Team Comps – Genshin Impact Guide

Mona + Ganyu + Diona + Venti

This combination is a classic double cryo team in the Frozen Team. Ganyu and Diona form a cryo resonance while Mona is responsible for providing Hydro aura and increasing damage, and Venti sets up the enemies for grouping while reducing their Cryo resistance with a 4-piece Viridescent Venerer artifact set. This team still has excellent output capabilities and output rotation even when facing numerous, low-resistance and groupable enemies.

Mona’s energy recharge rate should be as high as possible (energy recharge Clock, substat stacking energy recharge) so that she can use her ultimate as soon as her cooldown ends, reducing the output gap and thereby lowering the output efficiency.

Points to note for the team

It’s not always that there are many groupable enemies in the Abyss, and this team will be weaker when facing single bosses or difficult-to-group enemies. The requirements for the operation will also increase.

Reference output rotation

  1. Chongyun or Diona releases their elemental skill/burst (more often, it’s Ganyu who uses her burst to taunt the enemy and then releases her skill to prevent the enemy from scattering) to attach Cryo elements to the enemies.
  2. Switch to a character with the Anemo element and release their elemental skill/burst to reduce Cryo resistance using the Viridescent Venerer set bonus.
  3. Switch to Mona and release her burst, followed by her skill (first apply Cryo aura then Mona’s burst, otherwise the bubble effect of Mona’s burst will burst prematurely).
  4. Switch to Ganyu, release her elemental skill and start charging her shot. Repeat the rotation after Mona’s bubble effect ends.

◆ Simple version: Ganyu EQ, Diona E, Venti EQ, Mona EQ, Ganyu charged shot

Ganyu Build

Genshin Impact Team Comps Guide Ganyu build

For a freeze team, prioritize weapons with critical damage and attack. For artifacts, use 4-piece Blizzard Strayer set and aim for a critical rate between 20-30%.

For a melt team, prioritize weapons with both critical rate and critical damage, as well as elemental mastery and percentage attack. For artifacts, use 4-piece Wanderer’s Troupe set and aim for a critical rate between 60-80%.

Venti Build

Genshin Impact Team Comps Guide venti build

Stack Energy recharge efficiency to at least 180%.

If the character is relatively easy to build, then focus on mastering the gameplay, but if the character takes a longer time to develop, consider using a Anemo damage build.

Diona Build

Genshin Impact Team Comps Guide Diona build

Only one character in the team needs to use the “Noblesse Obige” set.

Prioritize building up energy recharge to maintain Diona’s burst cycle, and then stack HP to increase her shield strength.

Kamisato Ayaka + Mona + Kazuha + Diona

Kamisato Ayaka’s multi-group cryo element Elemental Aura is more effective in situations where shields need to be broken quickly, and Kazuha’s elemental skill has a good grouping effect when facing a small number of enemies, and he can provide additional Swirl elemental damage for the whole team, further enhancing their output.

Reference output rotation

Kamisato Ayaka sprints and applies Cryo aura, Kazuha EQ, Mona EQ, Kamisato Ayaka sprints and connects EQ, Diona Holding E to produce particles, then switch to Kamisato Ayaka to collect them.

Relevant Character Guide

Kamisato Ayaka Build

Genshin Impact Team Comps Guide Kamisato Ayaka Build

When paired with a 4-piece Blizzard Strayer set, prioritize stacking critical damage and percentage attack, with critical rate recommended to be between 25-35%.

When using weapons like the Primordial Jade Cutter or The Black Sword with critical rate, consider pairing them with “2+2” or “Emblem of Severed Fate 4 – piece set”.

Kaedehara Kazuha Build

Genshin Impact Team Comps Guide Kaedehara Kazuha build

When her energy recharge is below 150%, it is recommended to prioritize using the weapon “Xiphos’ Moonlight”.

Prioritize increasing Dyhya’s mastery, then energy recharge, and the weapon “Favonius Sword” needs critical hit rate.

If not using a Anemo DMG-based strategy, there is no need to upgrade her skill.

Hu Tao Double Hydro Team – Genshin Impact Guide

Hu Tao + Xingqiu/Yelan + Mona + Zhongli

Mona together with Xingqiu or Yelan, creates a double Hydro Resonance, increasing the maximum HP of the entire team. This also increases the extra attack damage from Hu Tao’s Skill, Yelan’s Skill damage, Zhongli’s shield strength, and Rain Sword’s healing effect.

Xingqiu and Yelan’s Elemental Bursts synergize to apply Hydro aura on enemies, allowing Hu Tao to trigger Vaporize reactions. Zhongli’s shield increases the team’s survivability and lowers enemies’ Elemental Resistance. Yelan’s second passive talent further increases Hu Tao’s damage output on the field. If choosing “Yelan” for this team, the “AAZ(charged attack)” rotation of Hu Tao can be used to reduce the frequency of heavy attacks, thereby reducing the frequency of Pyro application and increasing overall damage.

Reference output rotation

Yelan QE, Zhongli hold E, Mona EQ, Hu Tao E followed by AAZ loop.

【Note】In this team, Zhongli can also choose to pair with the Instructor 4-piece set to increase the damage of Hu Tao’s Vaporize reactions.

Hu Tao Build

Genshin Impact Team Comps Guide Hu Tao build

It is recommended to choose “Gilded Dreams” or “Shimenawa’s Reminiscence” based on the needs of characters and then synthesize them into the three-in-one “Crimson Witch of Flames” artifact set.

Hu Tao’s recommended critical hit rate is 70% or higher.

Prioritize the HP Clock when paired with “Dragon’s Bane” weapon.

Zhongli Build

Genshin Impact Team Comps Guide zhongli build

For Support Role, prioritize stacking HP to increase shield strength.

For DPS Role, consider choosing weapons and artifacts with dual critical stats.

If using the Favonius Lance, focus on stacking critical hit rate.

Yelan + Mona + Zhongli + Kazuha

Yelan’s constellation gradually improves her output capability, allowing her to choose to stay on the field with a double Crit weapon. After choosing a Shield Support/Healing character, the fourth slot can either be an auxiliary character that increases Hydro damage (such as Kazuha), or a background character with considerable output damage (such as Fischl).

In addition, there is the “Yelan Vaporize” gameplay of “Yelan + Mona/High Level Nilou+ Kazuha + Xiangling”. Pay attention to the efficiency of stacking Xiangling and Mona’s energy recharge rate. In addition, a high-constellation Nilou can use a high-refinement Key of Khai-Nisut to increase output damage. (mostly used in speedrun gameplay).

Reference output rotation

Mona E, Kazuha EQ, Zhongli hold E, Mona E, Yelan QEE followed by normal attacks to trigger a synergistic attack.

Relevant Character Guide

Xingqiu Build

Genshin Impact Team Comps Guide Xingqiu build

Prioritize Xingqiu’s energy recharge: For a single Hydro character with less than 6 constellations, it is recommended to have an energy recharge of 240% or higher, and for a team with two Hydro characters, it is recommended to have around 210%. After unlocking 6 constellations, it is recommended to have an energy recharge of 200-220% for a single Hydro character and 180-200% for a team with two Hydro characters.

Xingqiu’s skill has a long cooldown, so use it first and then wait for it to cool down.

Yelan Build

Genshin Impact Team Comps Guide Yelan Build 1

When Yelan has low constellations, it is better to choose weapons with energy recharge, and when her constellations is at 1, it is recommended to choose weapons with double critical.

For a Hydro character with 0 constellations, it is recommended to have an energy recharge of 240% or higher for a single character and around 200% for a team with two Hydro characters. For a Hydro character with 1 or more constellations, it is recommended to have an energy recharge of 200% for a single character and 150-180% for a team with two Hydro characters.
