Dori Support Build

Dori offers teams a solid heal rate based upon her HP stats and with proper artifact investment her healing can be quite powerful. She performs best with Cryo and Dendro elements, with her Elemental abilities giving a decent amount of Electro application against enemies. However, her C6 constellation grants Electro on all normal attacks, boosting her ability to trigger Elemental Reactions much higher.

Favonius Greatsword is a great choice for Dori, providing a significant increase to your Energy Recharge which helps fulfill her needed requirement of 160% as a minimum. As for her weapon alternatives, each of the listed weapons: Sacrificial Greatsword, Katsuragikiri Nagamasa and Forest Regalia, all offer increases to Energy Recharge as well. Dori is setup to focus on supporting her team with healing and a decent Electro application. This increases drastically if she is C6, but will still function well at her base constellation. Her damage is more of a minor component in this support build, however, she can have a decent amount of output in the right circumstances.

As for Dori's artifacts generally the 4-piece Ocean-Hued Clam is a great choice for healing and support, offering a needed damage hike as well. Alternatively, you can take the Gilded Dreams or Thundering Fury for focusing on Elemental Mastery as the next best choice. Lastly, the Noblesse Oblige set is another balanced set with a heavy focus on supporting other team members with a boost to ATK every time Dori uses her Elemental Burst.


Combos and How to Play Dori

Dori's playstyle centers around her Elemental Burst, Alcazarzaray's Exactitude, while her elemental skill, Spirit-Warding Lamp: Troubleshooter Cannon, provides a mediocre amount of Electro Damage. However, her Elemental Skill can be boosted from her first constellation, granting her the ability to apply Electro twice during her skill phase. Typically, Dori is played as a healer with her ability to apply Electro, usually only taken advantage of when she has completed her constellations at C6. This can lead many players to feel like her abilities are sub-par when compared to other Electro healers like Kuki Shinobu. However, if you do have Dori at C6 her Normal Attacks will become infused with Electro allowing her to become a strong Elemental Reaction driver.

Those without her C6 will have to rely on both her Elemental Skill, which recharges quite quickly, and her Elemental Burst to maintain any kind of Electro on the battlefield. As a healer, Dori's Elemental Burst offers constant healing based upon your position compared with her summoned Jinni. This applies to the active character only and does not effect any off-field members.


Dori's Best Team Comps

Dori can perform quite well with Dendro teams, even at C0. However, Dori's true potential is locked behind her C6 constellation which grants her normal attacks the Electro Element. With that in mind, we have chosen teams that aren't reliant on her being C6 and rather more focused into a support role with moderate Electro application.


Quickbloom Team

Support Sub DPS Sub DPS Swirl
Dori Xingqiu Nahida Jean

This Quickbloom team has such fantastic synergy with a particularly helpful reaction between Dori and Jean. Jean not only brings Swirl to this team, but she can help with our Electro application but using her Elemental Burst and taking advantage of her self-applied Electro proc. Add Xingqiu and Nahida for creating Bloom seeds and this team is ready for action.


Quickswap Aggravate Team

Support Sub DPS Sub DPS Support
Dori Fischl Nahida

A very straight forward team focused on constant character swaps. Dori provides this team with heals and acts as a great battery for her teammates, helping to recharge skills nice and fast. Fischl will help to push our DPS up with a focus on the Aggravate reaction with our Dendro application coming from Nahida. We also add some Swirl on to the battlefield, along with buffs from our Anemo flex-slot of Kaedehara Kazuha or Sucrose.


Dori DPS Aggravate Team

Sub DPS Buffer Sub DPS Buffer
Dori Kujou Sara Nahida Kaedehara Kazuha

This build focuses more on Dori's Damage output, rather than healing. Kaedehara Kazuha is a critical element in this build for pushing up the DPS to acceptable levels through his RES Shred and DMG buffs. Nahida brings some solid Dendro application helping to add to the Aggravate reactions. WKujou Sara brings an additional buff for Dori's DPS, boosting her Electro CRIT DMG and ATK power. Dori will be our main driver with her Elemental Burst, staying on-field while during her skill.
