Genshin Impact has released its new 4-star Cryo character from Sumeru, Layla. She is a student in the Rtawahist Darshan, which is a branch of Sumeru Akademiya. Layla specialized in Theoretical Astrology and performed excellently in her studies. As a playable character, Layla offers excellent support for any party. She is best suited with weapons that can enhance her party or her important personal stats. Here are the 3 best weapons for Layla to optimize her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst:
1st – Key of Khaj-Nisut
The Key of Khaj-Nisut is a 5-star sword which, according to its lore, is one of the paired sets of scepters made from obsidian. They say it can be used as a key for opening the gate to a paradise found at the end of the ocean of sand.
By equipping Layla with the Key of Khaj-Nisut, she gains the skill of Sunken Song of the Sands. Layla’s HP increases by 20%. And every time she gains an Elemental Skill hits opponents, you gain the Grand Hymn effect for the 20s. This effect will also increase Layla’s Elemental Mastery by 0.12% of their Max HP. It can only trigger once every 0.3 seconds and max up to 3 stacks.
When Layla gains 3 stacks of this effect, or the third stack’s duration is refreshed, the Elemental Mastery of her party members will increase by 0.2% of her max HP for 20 seconds.
2nd – Primordial Jade Cutter
The Primordial Jade Cutter is a 5-star sword from Liyue, which is said to be forged by Rex Lapis. It is a ceremonial sword carved from pure jade and said to have an audible sigh in the wind when swung.
The sword has a skill called Protector’s Value. If Layla equips this sword, her HP will increase by 20%. It also provides her an Attack Bonus based on 1.2% of Layla’s Max HP.
3rd – Favonius Sword
Favonius Sword is a 4-star sword, the standard issue longsword of the Knights of Favonius. It is an agile and sharp weapon that can efficiently channel the power of elements.
This sword gives Layla the skill called Windfall. This gives Layla’s Critical Hits a 60% chance to generate a number of Elemental Particles, giving her 6 Energy particles. This effect can only occur every 12 seconds.
