Ningguang is one of the leaders of Liyue Qixing in Genshin impact. As Tianquan, she is responsible for laws and governance in Liyue Port. She is a successful businesswoman and a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. Here is your complete guide to playing Ningguang in Genshin impact.
Attacks and skills
Attack: Sparkling Scatter – This attack launches a gem, dealing geographic damage and creating a 1-star jade. When using a charged attack, each Star Jade Ningguang will be consumed, shooting and dealing bonus damage.
Elemental Skill: Jade Screen – Ningguang creates a jade screen that inflicts AOE geographic damage when summoned. It can block incoming projectiles and some attacks. The stamina of the Jade Screen evolves with Ningguang’s max HP. Only one Jade screen can be in the field at a time.
Elemental explosion: Starshatter – When thrown, Ningguang scatters a large number of gems, which crash into nearby enemies, dealing huge geographic damage. If Starshatter is used near the Jade Screen, the Jade Screen will be consumed and additional Gems will be shot at enemies.
Backup plan: Ascension 1 – While Ningguang is in possession of Star Jades, his Charged Attack does not consume Stamina.
Strategic reserve: Ascension 4 – A character that passes through Jade’s screen will gain a 12% Geo DMG bonus for 10s.
A treasure trove of wonderful treasures – Displays the location of nearby ore veins (Iron Ore, Tin Ore, Crystal Ore, Magic Crystal Ore, and Silver Star) on the minimap.
C1: Piercing fragments – When a normal attack hits, it inflicts AoE DMG.

Artifacts and constructions for Ningguang
As a Geo character, Ningguang benefits greatly from the Archaic Petra artifact set. At 2 pieces, she gains an additional 15% geographic damage, which will increase the damage of her attacks and abilities. You can do this by either performing a 2-part Gladiator’s Finale to further increase your attack damage, or Noblesse Oblige to increase your Elemental Burst damage.
Alternatively, you can build a 4 piece Retracing Bolide which improves the strength of the shield. As long as you are shielded you will receive a 40% damage buff for normal and charged attacks. This buff is almost always on the rise due to crystallization reactions. For a support style build, opt for an Archaic 4 piece Petra to make full use of the Geo Crystallization reactions.
Optimal capacity rotation on Ningguang is fairly straightforward. First place your jade screen and run through it to receive the 12% Geo damage bonus from its 4th ascension. Then perform 3 Basic Attacks to get 3 Star Jades. Then perform a charged attack to consume the Star Jades for the extra damage. Then, when you’re ready to cast Starshatter, make sure you have a Jade Screen nearby to get bonus gems for extra damage.
