Kirara is 4 star dendro sword character in Genshin Impact with shield and mobility. Particularly useful in dendro based elemental reaction team, her shield can protect party member from self-damage om bloom team. Her quick mobility also help to apply dendro status quickly to enemies.
To maximize Kirara shield strength and damage absorption, your main focus will be HP whether it’s from weapon, artifacts, or level (recommended to max level 90). For talent priority, first is Elemental Skill, second is Burst, and you can just ignore Normal Attack.
|Elemental Skill > Elemental Burst > Normal Attack|
Some things to consider when choosing weapon for Kirara:
- If you want to maximize her shield strength, go for sword with HP substats
- If you want more reliable burst uptime, go for Energy Recharge. Especially with Sacrificial Sword and Favonius Sword, she can act as team battery as well.
If you want to maximize Kirara shield strength, go for 2 set each of artifacts with +20% HP bonus set:
|2 Vorukasha’s Glow + 2 Tenacity of the Millelith||(2) HP +20%.|
(2) HP +20%.

|(2) HP +20%.|
(4) When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.
4 Deepwood Memories also a choice, IF no other character in your team using it. Though, it’s recommended to use 4 Deepwood for other Dendro character so Kirara can focus on maximizing her shield strength.

|(2) Dendro DMG Bonus +15%.|
(4) After Elemental Skills or Bursts hit opponents, the targets’ Dendro RES will be decreased by 30% for 8s. This effect can be triggered even if the equipping character is not on the field.
*Depend if you are using HP/ER weapon or IF there are already Energy Recharge support/battery in the team.
*Consider CRIT Rate for Circlet if Kirara using Favonius Sword.
|HP%/*Energy Recharge||HP%||HP%/*CRIT Rate%|
|CRIT Rate (Favonius) > HP% > Energy Recharge% > HP Flat|
