Genshin Impact Clorinde: Leaked Kit, Best Build, Weapons & Artifacts

In Short
  • Clorinde is a five-star Electro character in Genshin Impact and she wields a Sword.
  • She scales off of Attack and her best artifact sets are Fragment of Harmonic Whimsy.
  • She can obtain Bond of Life by using her enhanced Normal attacks, Elemental Burst, or receiving healing other than from her Skill.

Clorinde is a 5-star Electro character set to appear in Genshin Impact 4.7 and her leaked kit appears extremely strong. She is going to be a main DPS wielding a Sword (with a gun) and her kit is focused on Bond of Life, similar to Arlecchino. It is getting clear that Bond of Life is going to be the new meta mechanic going into Natlan, and most new characters releasing in the coming versions will use that mechanic. If you are interested in Clorinde, here is everything we know of her leaked kit and her best build.

Clorinde: Weapon, Element Type and Drip Marketing

Clorinde is a 5-star Electro character wielding a sword and she has a main DPS-focused kit. Her kit focuses on Bond of Life, similar to Arlecchino, and she can only play as a Main DPS as her kit requires her to stay on-field to deal damage.

Clorinde is the champion duelist of Fontaine and served as the bodyguard for the Hydro Archon Furina. Genshin players who have finished the Fontaine archon quest are well familiar with Clorinde, especially her face-off with Navia. Her Drip Marketing also reveals that she has never been defeated in a duel.

Clorinde Speculated Release Date and Banners

Clorinde is expected to be released with the Genshin Impact 4.7 version. According to rumors, she will feature in the first phase of the version. If the rumors are correct, Clorinde can be speculated to release on June 5, 2024.

Clorinde Voice Actors

Clorinde’s English voice actor is Crystal Lee, who is known for voicing Miriam in Unicorn Overlord (video game), Gina in Solo Leveling (anime), Oni Adventurer Athena in Smite (video game).

Clorinde’s Japanese voice actor is Yui Ishikawa, who is known for voicing Mikasa Ackerman in Attack on Titan, 2B in Nier: Automata (video game), and Violet Evergarden in Violet Evergarden (anime).

Clorinde Leaked Kit and Best Rotation

Clorinde will have a hyper-carry-focused kit, emphasizing her enhanced Normal attacks and Skill. Like Arlecchino, Clorinde’s kit also revolves around Bond of Life. After using her Skill, she enters the Night Watch State, which changes her Normal Attacks into Electro infused attacks and also changes her Skill into a lunging attack with various Bond of Life modifiers.

She can gain Bond of Life through various means, one being her enhanced Normal Attacks up to 100% Bond of Life and another being her Elemental Burst. Other than that, a percentage of healing given to her during the Night Watch state is converted into Bond of Life. Depending on the percentage of her Bond of Life, she has increased Crit Rate, Crit Damage, Damage dealt, and healing. Let’s take a look at her kit:

  • Clorinde scales on Attack and her Bond of Life gain through normal attacks is based on her Max HP.
  • Her Skill puts her into the Night Watch state, electro-fusing her Normal attacks and converting her Skill into a Lunge attack.
  • Clorinde’s enhanced Normal attacks make her obtain Bond of Life up to 100% of her Max HP.
  • Her Skill deals big AoE electro damage and heals Clorinde, based on the Bond of Life cleared.
  • Her Elemental Burst grants her Bond of Life and deals AoE electro damage.
  • Clorinde converts a percentage of healing received into a Bond of Life.
  • Clorinde’s second passive increases her damage dealt based on her attack when a nearby ally triggers an electro reaction, and this can stack up to 3 times.
  • Her third passive further enhances her enhanced skill effect when she has more than 100% Bond of Life and her Bond of Life is still increasing or decreasing.
  • Clorinde can mark nearby resources unique to Fontaine on the mini-map.

For Clorinde’s cycle rotation use her Skill to enter the Night Watch state and continue using her Normal attacks to deal damage and build Bond of Life to 100%. Once her Bond of Life hits 100%, use her Elemental Burst to gain more Bond of Life, and then use her Enhanced Skill to deal massive AoE damage and clear the Bond of Life, healing her in the process.

Clorinde Best Artifacts

Clorinde’s best build will feature the 4-piece Fragment of Harmonic Whimsy artifact set. This artifact set gives her an 18% Attack increase and another 18% damage increase for 6 seconds (max 3 stacks) when her Bond of Life increases or decreases.

Other than that, the 4-piece Thundering Fury set is also perfect for Clorinde, especially if you are using a Bloom team. It increases damage from Bloom, Electro-charged, Overloaded, and Superconduct reactions, decreases her Skill Cool Down, and gives Clorinde a straight 15% Electro damage bonus.

Here are all the artifacts you can use for her, including the best and alternatives:

  • Fragment of Harmonic Whimsy (Best artifact for Clorinde)
  • Thundering Fury (Best Alternative)
  • Gladiator’s Finale
  • Thundersoother
  • Shimenawa’s Reminiscence

Clorinde Main and Sub-Stats Priority

When it comes to her main and sub-stats priority, focus on stacking her Crit Damage, Crit Rate, and Attack % to increase her damage further. Also, try to hit 140% – 150% Energy. A normal Main DPS build should work perfectly for her. Clorinde doesn’t scale with EM, so adding EM to her stats would not have much benefit.

It will also attack opponents, dealing 200% of Clorinde’s ATK as Electro DMG. DMG dealt this way is considered Normal Attack DMG. The Glimbright Shade will appear under the following circumstances:

    – When Clorinde uses Impale the Night: Pact.
    One Glimbright Shade can be summoned in the aforementioned ways every Xs. 6 Shades can be summoned per single Night Watch duration.

Clorinde’s Constellations are very strong but they are not needed to get the best out of her kit. Her C4 and C6 are a massive damage increase, and they can be worth the spend if you are planning to build her completely.
