Genshin Impact 4.1 Neuvillette Build Guide: Weapon Options, Artifacts, Material and Team Comp

Deliver judgment with the best Genshin Impact Neuvillette build and ensure that even the gods themselves won’t escape justice. Fontaine’s Chief Justice is not quite the simple man he professes to be and has immense power hidden up his frilled sleeves. This 5-Star Hydro unit wielding a catalyst is a strong damage dealer based around the manipulation of his own HP.

In case you manage to acquire Neuvillette during his banner event, it's essential to consider his ideal build and team composition. Much like Alhaitham, Neuvillette is known for his seriousness and influential position.

Neuvillette’s kit contains a special Charged Attack, which heals him up as you charge it up by generating Sourcewater Droplets and then consumes HP as you unleash a powerful beam of water.

His Elemental Skill, O Tears, I Shall Repay, summons an area-of-effect attack that deals Hydro damage based on Neuvillette’s Maximum HP. On a hit, three Sourcewater Droplets are created.

Neuvillette’s Elemental Burst, O Tides, I Have Returned, unleashed another area-of-effect Hydro attack with damage based on his Maximum HP. After two follow-up attacks, it generates a total of six Sourcewater Droplets.

He’s got some helpful passive skills as well: Neuvillette’s Hydro Damage increases with his Maximum HP and Neuvillette gains a buff to the damage of his Charged Attack whenever an ally triggers an elemental reaction with Hydro, so you’ll want to play him in a varied composition.

Best Neuvillette Weapons – Genshin Impact

Neuvillette’s signature weapon, Tome of the Eternal Flow, is naturally the tool best suited for him. Aside from boosting Critical Hit Damage and Maximum HP, this catalyst buffs the damage dealt by the wearer’s Charged Attack when HP is decreased or increased. Once three stacks of effect are reached, it’ll also restore Energy to the wielder.

This combination of effects will greatly increase the damage Neuvillette can deal.

Here are the best weapons for Neuvillette in Genshin Impact:

  • Tome of the Eternal Flow (5-star catalyst)
  • Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds (5-Star catalyst)
  • Jadefall’s Splendor (5-Star catalyst)
  • Sacrificial Jade (4-Star catalyst)
  • Prototype Amber (4-Star catalyst)

Best Neuvillette Artifacts – Genshin Impact

Neuvillette benefits most from the Marechaussee Hunter set, as this equipment will increase his Normal and Charged Attack Damage and further boost his Critical Hit Rate whenever he gains or loses HP – since Neuvillette’s gameplay revolves around this anyway, this is a natural pick.

Another choice for Neuvillette artifacts would be the Heart of Depth set. This selection can enhance his Hydro damage and Normal Attack output. Alternatively, the Noblesse Oblige set proves effective in boosting his Elemental Burst damage.

Additionally, the Nymph’s Dream artifact set emerges as a strong contender for Neuvillette's best artifact. This set substantially amplifies Hydro damage and normal attacks, with a cumulative stacking effect.

Neuvillette Ascension Materials – Genshin Impact

You’ll want to quickly raise Neuvillette’s level when you finally pull him, which means that you’ll need to farm his ascension materials. You’ll also require some material to upgrade his talents.

Here’s what you need to get Neuvillette to level 90:

  • Varunada Lazurite Sliver x1
  • Varunada Lazurite Fragment x9
  • Varunada Lazurite Chunk x9
  • Varunada Lazurite Gemstone x6
  • Transoceanic Pearl x18
  • Transoceanic Chunk x30
  • Xenochromatic Crystal x36
  • Lumitoile x168
  • Fontemer Unihorn x46
  • Mora x2,092,530

Varunada Lazurite can be obtained from any Hydro-affiliated boss on the world map, such as the Hydro Hypostasis below Watatsumi Island. Transoceanic Pearls and Chunks as well as Xenochromatic Crystals are drops from the crabs and sea creatures inhabiting Fontaine.

Lumitoile is another Fontaine-exclusive material and can be collected near bodies of water on beaches or on the walls of buildings once update 4.1 has rolled out. Fontemer Unihorns become available in the same update, being a material dropped by the Millenial Pearl Seahorses. The best way to earn more Mora in the game is to farm golden Ley Line Blossoms.

Here’s what you need to upgrade all of Neuvillette’s talents to their maximum level:

  • Transoceanic Pearl x18

  • Teachings of Equity x9
  • Guide to Equity x63
  • Philosophies of Equity x114
  • Everamber x18
  • Crown of Insight x3

For the materials already mentioned, check above. You’ll need to visit the Pale Forgotten Glory Domain on Monday, Thursday, and Sunday to farm Scrolls of Equity. Everambers are a boss item only dropped by Apep, the Dendro Dragon.

Crowns of Insight are a rare item gained from time-limited events or regional reward mechanics like the Tree of Dreams in Sumeru, the Grand Narukami Shrine in Inazuma, or Fontaine’s Fountain of Lucine.

Best Neuvillette Teams Comps– Genshin Impact

Neuvillette prefers a colorful mix of support characters around him, which allows his passive skill to maximize the damage the team causes, making him quite versatile.

Neuvillette spends most of his time on the field, but is somewhat vulnerable to interruption due to the immobile nature of his Charged Attack. Shields and resistance buffs help out with this issue, making characters like Diona, Layla, Zhongli, Kirara, Dehya, and Baizhu excellent options as his defensive supports. Sub DPS characters like Yae Miko, Fischl, Lisa, or Beidou can create consistent Electro effects and act as batteries. You could even opt for Dori to additionally fill the healer slot. Finally, an Anemo character for crowd control, debuffing, and further reactions is a good option: Characters like Kazuha, Sucrose, Jean, and Venti can fill this slot.

Neuvillette can definitely run with another Hydro character like Mona or Kokomi as well, which buffs his Maximum HP due to the Hydro Resonance created this way. However, this comes at the cost of not using his passive skill to the extent of its potential.
