I am not a professional Genshin guide.. person
I am a dolphin (spent ~$250)
These builds were made based on my preferences
If you want a tl;dr just scroll through for pretty pictures and captions
Sup, I’m SupGurl. I decided to post guides of characters I like for no reason. I will go over detailed info on talents/constellations, weapons, artifact builds, and possible team comps. I will also include F2P options for weapons and possible unit switches (if any of them work). Lastly, I may be wrong about some things. If I am, please correct me in the comments and don’t be lame about it :]
Our underrated, F2P friendly cutie. Before we get into anything I’d like to say that, yes, at C6 she is a strong DPS. However, most players aren’t gonna have Noelle at C6. Because of that, I’m going to focus on using her for her shield and heals. So, what does Noelle do?
Taking only defense/healing into account, there is one main ability that we want leveled up on our cute maid.
Defense defense defense
At low levels, the healing isn’t fantastic. My Noelle has Breastplate at lvl 4 and I still heal up my team with no issues before it breaks. However, as Breastplate hits higher levels the heal trigger chance bumps up to over 60% and increases the amount, which is also nice.
While the damage is never going to be super high, the fact that we get 150% of her defense as Geo damage on use is also pretty cool. As usual, her ascension talents further unlock her potential.
Safety net woooo
As a nice “Oh shit” safety net, we get a whopping 4X Noelle’s defense as an auto trigger shield when the active unit hits low health. This is a very underrated part of Noelle’s kit imo.
Lower cooldown is good
This is awesome. If you animation cancel, you can get 4 full combos in before Noelle’s shield disappears. Taking 4 seconds off of her cooldown gives us only 8 seconds of downtime between Breastplate uses.
Noelle works just fine as a healer even with no cons, but with her C1 she really becomes consistent.
100% heal chance brings our girl to the next level.
I don’t really need to explain why this is good. Again, not quite necessary but it really makes a difference. Since we don’t really care much about how much damage she is doing, the only other relevant constellation is her C3.
Better shield, better heals
There is an argument to be maid (heh) for Skyward Pride/Favonius Greatsword in team comps where energy recharge is an issue, but focusing mostly on her healing potential our best bet is still surprisingly the F2P option.
This weapon was clearly made for Noelle. Not only do we get a defense secondary stat, but we get bonus defense stacks on each hit. Extra DEF = extra heals.
I’ve seen people suggest Retracing Bolide set for Noelle for the shield strength, but since it’ll be gone before we swap off of her most of the time full Maiden Beloved is the way to go imo.
More healz plz
If you really want her as a hybrid for some damage, you can do 2 set Archaic Petra and 2 set Maiden since we get added Geo damage that scales with DEF during her ult.
I do not recommend this, but you do you.
For teams with a Geo DPS or another Geo support, Noelle is especially good due to increased energy and Geo resonance. I actually keep Noelle in my main comp rn.
In this case she’s there for Geo resonance and the exclusive healer.
If you’re using her as more of a hybrid, you can build some more ATK and have another healer in the crew for a super defensive comp.
Here we have Bennett to heal and buff with his ult, with Noelle can keep Klee alive in emergencies.
Of course, there are many more teams that Noelle can fit into. Try some shit out yo.
There really isn’t too much more to know about Noelle since she’s a pretty simple unit overall. The one thing I know of is..
Attack Animation Cancel:
If you tap sprint after a full 4 hit combo, you will be able to immediately start another combo. The stamina also fully recharges before you need to tap sprint again.
Artifact Main Stats:
We want the following for max defense and heals:
Flower – Duh, only HP
Feather – Duh, only ATK
Timepiece – Defense %
Cup – Defense %
Circlet – Healing Bonus
Of course, we want as many DEF % and flat DEF rolls as we can get. After that, it’s pretty flexible. If you want you can go for some energy recharge to make sure ult is always ready when you need it. ATK % and ATK rolls can also be nice for a little bit of extra damage while healing. It’s really personal preference after the DEF subs are there.
That’s all for now! I hope I helped out and didn’t annoy you too much during reading. I’d be interested to see more comps that fit Noelle so please share.
