Relics Set

Jingliu Relic And Planar Ornaments

Jingliu is ice character, so relics set with Ice DMG increase: Hunter of Glacial Forest from Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Gelid Wind in Herta Space Station Storage Zone is your recommended set.

4 Hunter of Glacial Forest(2) Increases Ice DMG by 10%.
(4) After the wearer unleashes their Ultimate, their CRIT DMG increases by 25% for 2 turn(s).

You can also mix 2 Hunter of Glacial Forest with other 2 set relic like Musketeer of Wild Wheat for ATK increase.

2 Hunter of Glacial Forest + 2 Musketeer of Wild Wheat(2) Increases Ice DMG by 10%.
(2) ATK increases by 12%

Or Hackerspace relic for SPD increase.

2 Hunter of Glacial Forest + 2 Messenger Traversing Hackerspace(2) Increases Ice DMG by 10%.

Other interesting option is Genius of Brilliant Stars. Yes it’s Quantum DMG relic, but in this case we will ignore it’s 2 set bonus and focus more on 4 set bonus: ignore defense.

4 Genius of Brilliant Stars(2) Increases Quantum DMG by 10%.
(4) When the wearer deals DMG to the target enemy, ignores 10% DEF. If the target enemy has Quantum Weakness, the wearer additionally ignores 10% DEF.

Defense shred is useful for many damage dealer. In Jingliu case, we already have DEF shred from her light cone. Add Pela defense shred on it and the enemy will drop like flies.

Planar Ornaments

As damage dealer, it’s best to use link and rope with set effect related to ATK/CRIT like Rutilant Arena from Herta Simulated Universe world 7:

Rutilant Arena(2) Increases the wearer’s CRIT Rate by 8%. When the wearer’s current CRIT Rate reaches 70% or higher, the wearer’s Basic ATK and Skill DMG increase by 20%.

Team for Jingliu?

Jingliu is excellent damage dealer. There’s so manu options about who to choose in her team. You can go with Bronya for ATK/CRIT buff and +Action Advance, Pela for defense shred, Asta for speed buff, or characters that benefit from HP reduction (Blade).

Since her mechanics revolve around reducing HP, adding healer or self healing tank is a must, for safety reason.

Jingliu Team 2

Jingliu Team 3

And so on. Most of the time, the format always Jingliu + Bronya + Buffer/Debuffer + Healer/Fu Xuan (self healing tank). For debuffer and buffer option, we have so many options like: Pela, Silver Wolf, Bronya, Tingyun, etc.
