Genshin Impact Candace

Genshin Impact 3.1 brings us Candace, a 4-Star Polearm character. This Build Guide outlines her Ascension Materials and best weapons.

Candace need ascension materials, Talent books, and Artifacts, much like new characters. With the first half of Sumeru unlocked, you can acquire practically all of Candace’s supplies for Genshin Impact.

Ascension Materials Level 1-90

Candace’s Ascension Materials are largely from Sumeru, however they’re new and will be presented in 3.1. Hydro Hypostasis and Rhodea of Loch bosses drop Varunada Lazurite. Childe Boss fights once a week also give them. The Redcrests can be farmed before Candace’s releases and the Red Satins, Silks, and Brocades. Light Guiding Tetrahedron is a new 3.1 material from Semi-Perpetual Control Matrix.

Candace’s elemental talent and elemental burst damage help her as a Hydro unit. Her elemental talent scales to her HP, although your stat priorities may alter whether you construct her as a support or DPS.

Best Weapon

Candace benefits from Elemental Damage or HP-boosting weapons. The Staff of Homa grants a 20% HP bonus for DPS Candace. Deathmatch and Blackcliff Pole are 4-star weapons. The Catch is the ideal weapon for an Elemental Bust and Skill-damaging build.

5-Star Weapons

Staff of Homa

20% extra HP ATK bonus is 0.8% of wielder’s max HP. This ATK bonus increases by 1% of Max HP when the wielder’s HP is below 50%.

Candace 4-Star Weapons


If 2 opponents are close, ATK and DEF are both raised by 16%. ATK is 24% higher with fewer than 2 adjacent opponents.

Blackcliff Pole

ATK increases by 12% for 30s after a victory. Each stack’s duration is independent of the others.

The Catch

Elemental Burst DMG is increased by 32%, and Elemental Burst CRIT rate is increased by 12%.

Best Artifact Stat Priority

Candace benefits from a variety of artefact sets, depending on how you choose to construct her. Those interested in a full DPS build should choose a 2-piece Noblous Oblige and 2-piece Heart of Depth or 2-piece Tenacity of the Millelith. A full Noblous Oblige set of four pieces is also ideal for a full support squad.
