Healers are a vital part of any composition, making sure the DPS is always ready to fight. And from all the characters present in Gesnhin Impact, very few of them do the job as well as the Deaconess of the Church of Favonius and Mondstadts Idol, Barbara.

With her ability to enable various elemental reactions, cause damage, and heal your entire party effectively, all of that while not needing any high-quality Catalysts and maintaining a high HP, Barbara is a great addition to any team. Just make sure you don't bring her to a Cryo involvement.

We will now show you a build guaranteed to keep you alive even in the toughest of challenges and to make sure you always go to battle protected by the light of the Idol of Mondstadt and the blessings of the Ameno Anchor. Ready, Traveller?

Let the Show Begin!

Barbara is a character that has its whole set focussed in a determined role inside a composition, and even if she can be used in a damaging focused role, she truly shines as a high-class healer.

With that in mind, the Maiden Beloved set is perfect for her, since it offers a 15% bonus on healing effectiveness and the healing received by party members after her elemental burst by 20%. The set can be found in the Valley of Remembrance. 

Because all of Barbara's healing abilities scale off her maximum HP, we advise you to focus on artifacts that offer that, except for the circlet, which should be, if possible, a Healing Bonus one. If you follow the steps above, she can easily reach an HP total of 20K at higher world levels. Getting Energy Recharge in the sub-stats is also a good idea, so her Elemental Burst can be available faster.

The Power of Music!

As we said above, for Barbara to excel in the composition, there is no need for a 4-star or superior catalyst, since the 3-star Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers is an extremely useful addition and fits her playstyle perfectly.

The catalyst offers a bonus of 24% base attack to the character taking the field after Barbara, the effect lasts up to 20 seconds, and the boost can be easily increased to a 48% attack bonus by refining the weapon.

On the Talents side, you will want to focus on her Elemental Skill, ''Let the Show Begin'', and on her Elemental Burst ''Shining Miracle'', making sure she is always ready to heal however needs. 

Genshin Impact is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, mobile devices, and PC. You can get Barbara for free right now, if you already haven't, by completing the A Long Shot chapter during the Prologue Act III: Song of the Dragon and Freedom, and increase her constellation on the current event featured banner. 

What are you waiting for? Go show the world the potential of the Idol of Mondstadt!
