Genshin Impact 4.6 "Father" Arlecchino Build Guide: Weapon, Artifacts, Team Comps, Stats

Genshin Impact 4.6 "Father" Arlecchino Build Guide: Weapon, Artifacts, Team Comps, Stats

Genshin Impact Version 4.6 introduces Arlecchino as yet another powerful Pyro DPS. From her signature red scythe to the economical White Tassel, here are the best weapons, artifacts, team comps and stats for Arlecchino in Genshin Impact.

It's common knowledge that Arlecchino in Genshin Impact is called "Father." However, the reason behind this doesn't become clear until closer to her release as a playable character in Genshin Impact. Knowing her past, it makes sense how hard she is on herself and her children. Despite the cold persona, though, it's evident that the cold "Father" is a better parent than the fake "Mother."

Considering how tough Arlecchino has to be given her past and present roles, it's no surprise that her combat revolves around risky-yet-rewarding moves. When it comes to Arlecchino build in Genshin Impact, it's crucial to recognize how her Bond of Life system works, otherwise, it'll be hard to play her.

Best Build For Arlecchino In Genshin Impact

As was previously mentioned, Arlecchino is a DPS unit who specializes in dealing Pyro DMG. Her gameplay revolves around a Bond of Life mechanic – by using her Elemental Skill, Arlecchino deals Pyro AoE DMG and applies a Blood-Debt Directive on opponents. Following up, she should use her Charged Attack, which will absorb the Directives and transform them into Bond of Life for her. When over 30%, she infuses Normal Attacks with Pyro and deals extra damage, though at the cost of potential healing.

Arlecchino's Skill

Genshin Impact: Arlecchino build

Arlecchino’s Normal Attack, Invitation to a Beheading, will be infused with the Pyro Element – which can’t be overridden – whenever she has a Bond of Life equal to or greater than a certain threshold of her maximum HP, making her enter the Masque of the Red Death state. This will also boost her damage output based on her Attack multiplied by a certain ratio of her current Bond of Life percentage, steadily consuming the Bond of Life and resetting the cooldown of her Skill.

Her Elemental Skill, All is Ash, summons Balemoon Bloodfire and deals Pyro Damage to nearby enemies, performing a dash-and-cleave action. Enemies hit by this start to suffer from a status called Blood-Debt Directive, lasting 30 seconds. They’ll be inflicted with Pyro Damage every five seconds and when Arlecchino uses a Charged Attack or her Elemental Burst against them, she will absorb nearby Blood-Debt Directives to generate a Bond of Life based on her maximum HP.

Arlecchino’s Elemental Burst, Balemoon Rising, deals Pyro Damage in area of effect, resets the cooldown of All is Ash, and heals her based on the current Bond of Life she has as well as her Attack.

An important Talent of her’s is Cinders Alone Shall Nourish, which stipulates that she can only be healed by Balemoon Rising while in combat, though she gains a massive bonus to Pyro Damage in return.

Best Weapons For Arlecchino (Best Polearms)

Best Weapons for Arlecchino in Genshin Impact 4.6

The first step to building Arlecchino is to give her a proper weapon. The best polearm for Arlecchino is Crimson Moon’s Semblance, her signature 5-star weapon. This item has a high base ATK (674 at level 90) with a helpful CRIT Rate sub-stat (22% at level 90). Additionally, it synergizes with her main gameplay mechanic by giving her extra Bond of Life when hitting opponents with Charged Attacks. If she has Bond of Life, Arlecchino gets a massive DMG Bonus, up to 36% if the Bond of Life is greater than or equal 20% of her Max HP.

Here are the best weapons for Arlecchino in Genshin Impact:

  • Crimson Moon’s Semblance (5-Star)
  • Staff of Homa (5-Star)
  • Primordial Jade-Winged Spear (5-Star)
  • Staff of the Scarlet Sands (5-Star)
  • Deathmatch (4-Star)
  • Dragon’s Bane (4-Star)
  • Blackcliff Pole (4-Star)

Arlecchino Best Artifact In Genshin Impact

Arlecchino build with 4pc Fragment of Harmonic Whimsy

The new Fragment of Harmonic Whimsy artifact set is tailor-made for Arlecchino. It is her best artifact set, but it may not be the best use of your Resin. Arlecchino is the only character who can make use of this artifact set, and the other set in the domain is similarly niche. Unless you are dead-set on absolutely min-maxing your Arlecchino, I recommend one of the sets below instead.

Arlecchino build with 4pc Gladiator’s Finale (4GF)

4pc Gladiator’s Finale is a good second choice for Arlecchino. It provides an unconditional ATK bonus and Normal Attack DMG bonus. Since much of Arlecchino’s damage comes from her Pyro-infused Normal Attacks, she makes great use of Gladiator’s Finale’s effects. Gladiator’s Finale can be obtained from world bosses and artifact strongboxes.

Arlecchino build with 4pc Crimson Witch of Dreams (4CW)

4pc Crimson Witch of Dreams is an option for Arlecchino in Vaporize teams. Arlecchino is unable to fully stack its 4pc effect, but the reaction bonus will still boost her Vaporized hits.

Artifact Stats To Prioritize For Arlecchino

  • Sands: ATK / Elemental Mastery
  • Goblet: Pyro DMG
  • Circlet: CRIT Rate / DMG

Arlecchino can require about 150% Energy Recharge. She does not strictly need to use her Burst every rotation, so if you can’t quite get enough Energy, you can forgo casting her Burst. 

Aside from Energy Recharge, focus on CRIT and ATK stats. Elemental Mastery is useful in Vaporize teams only. You should shoot for roughly a 1:2 ratio of CRIT Rate to CRIT DMG.

Best Team Comps For Arlecchino

Genshin Impact 4.6 "Father" Arlecchino Build Guide: Weapon, Artifacts, Team Comps, Stats

When choosing the best team comps for Arlecchino, it is recommended that you try to focus on a single strong Elemental Reaction. Surely, she is a powerhouse on her own and can fit into a variety of party compositions, but she is at her best when aided to trigger Reactions like Overloaded and Vaporize, for instance. If you focus your efforts on these sorts of Reactions and build a team with this in mind and Arlecchino at the forefront, you should be powering through opponents quite easily, especially if the rest of her build is solid.

The table below lists a few team comp suggestions for Arlecchino in Genshin Impact, focused on some of the most powerful Elemental Reactions in the game which can be triggered by the Pyro DPS:

Overloaded Team Comp  
  • Arlecchino (Main DPS)
  • Raiden Shogun or Fischl (Sub-DPS)
  • Chevreuse (Support)
  • Bennett or Kuki Shinobu (Healer)
Vaporize Team Comp
  • Arlecchino (Main DPS)
  • Yelan or Xingiu (Sub-DPS)
  • Zhongli or Yun Jin (Support)
  • Furina, Kokomi, or Barbara (Healer)
Burgeon / Burn Team Comp
  • Arlecchino (Main DPS)
  • Yelan or Xingqiu (Sub-DPS)
  • Nahida (Support)
  • Furina or Kokomi (Healer)
F2P Team Comp
  • Arlecchino (Main DPS)
  • Fischl (Sub-DPS - Overloaded) or Xingqiu (Sub-DPS - Vaporize)
  • Chevreuse (Support - Overloaded) or Yun Jin or Lynette (Support - Vaporize)
  • Bennett or Kuki Shinobu (Healer - Overloaded) or Barbara (Healer - Vaporize)

An Overloaded team comp for Arlecchino is highly recommended since it is one of the strongest Elemental Reactions in the game and there are plenty of powerful units to assist her – Chevreuse, in fact, is a support dedicated to this very cause, and can maximize the potential of that Reaction, while a healer like Bennett can assist with the occasional HP regeneration and a considerable ATK bonus. If this is not your preferred Elemental Reaction in Genshin Impact, there are other options.

A Vaporize team comp works exceedingly well with Arlecchino as the DPS. The simplicity in Reactions that revolve around only two Elements makes this and Overloaded some of the best choices. You can, however, push it toward a different angle and build a Burgeon team comp. The only thing you need to ensure is that you set the stage with Dendro Cores beforehand, to come in with Arlecchino to finish the job with her Pyro-fed Burgeon Reactions in Genshin Impact.

This is the build guide for Arlecchino. We will also provide more consulting information about her later.
