Genshin Impact Diona Best Build – Best Weapons and Artifacts


With Diona on the Hu Tao banner, we thought it was the right time to make a Diona Best build guide. Find out the best weapons and artifacts for this bartender.

Diona is Cryo Bow user in Genshin Impact. Despite working as a bartender at Cat’s Tail, she despises alcohol and is hell-bent on destroying Mondstadt’s wine industry, a task made more difficult by the fact that her customers adore her concoctions. She is the daughter of Draff, a Springvale hunter.

Diona is ideally suited for a support position because she has the ability to both heal and defend friends. While Diona provides support, we prefer teaming her with Genshin Impact’s Razor for the superconduct reaction, which increases his physical assault.

Diona Best Build Guide


  • Able to create shields and recover allies’ HP. 
  • AoE Elemental Burst heals and allows for multiple Cryo Reactions. 
  • Passive Skill allows her to create more restorative food when cooking.


  • Low base health and defense.

Genshin Impact Diona Abilities

Katzlein Style (Normal Attack)

  • Normal Attack – Performs up to 5 consecutive shots with a bow.

Icy Paws (Elemental Skill)

  • Hold – Dashes back quickly before firing five Icy Paws. The shield created by a Hold attack will gain a 75% DMG Absorption Bonus.

The shield has a 250% Cryo DMG Absorption Bonus, and will cause your active character to become affected by Cryo at the point of formation for a short duration.

Signature Mix (Elemental Burst)

Tosses out a special cold brew that deals AoE Cryo DMG and creates a Drunken Mist in an AoE.

  • Drunken Mist – Deals continuous Cryo DMG to opponents within the AoE. Continuously regenerates the HP of characters within the AoE.
