Archon of the hydro nation, Genshin Impact’s Furina (also known as Focalors), lives for the drama of the courthouse and presides over all of Fontaine’s goings-on. She’s a five-star, hydro unit that uses a sword and can help pop off tons of reactions on the field.

Here’s everything you need to know about Genshin Impact’s Furina.
Genshin Impact’s Furina release date
Furina releases on November 8, 2023, heading up the 4.2 version update. Her banner also introduces Genshin Impact’s Charlotte, a reporter for the Steambird.
What’s the best Genshin Impact Furina build?
Furina excels at applying hydro both on and off the field, placing her as a sub-DPS, and an excellent unit for popping off reactions including hyperbloom, freeze, and vaporize.
As part of her performance on the field, Furina invites the guests of the Salon Solitaire (Madam Crabaletta, Surintendante Chevalmarin, Gentilhomme Usher – a crab, a seahorse, and an octopus) to come forth and join her. This summons either the Salon Members who are Ousia aligned, or the Singer of Many Waters, who aligns with Pneuma – depending on Furina’s current Arkhe alignment. Furina can change her alignment using her charged attacks.
Furina’s skill does apply a health drain to the entire team, but one of her unlockable skills heals the team a little – we do recommend taking a healer, just in case.
What are the best Genshin Impact Furina weapons?
Furina requires a high HP stat and plenty of energy recharge, but thankfully there are plenty of good weapon choices to help out with this, while also boosting her damage.
|Weapon||Effect||How to obtain|
|Key of Khaj-Nisut (five-star)||Bonus effect: Increases max HP
Skill: Furina’s HP increases by 20%. When her elemental skill hits an opponent, you gain the Grand Hymn effect for 20 seconds. This increases Furina’s elemental mastery by 0.12% of her max HP. This effect triggers once every 0.3 seconds. Maximum three stacks. When this effect gains three stacks, or when the third stack’s duration refreshes, the elemental mastery of all nearby party members increases by 0.2% of Furina’s max HP for 20 seconds
|Weapon banner alongside Nilou|
|Fleuve Cendre Ferryman (four-star)||Bonus effect: Increases energy recharge
Skill: Increases Furina’s elemental skill crit rate by 8%. Additionally increases her energy recharge by 16% for five seconds after using an elemental skill
|Fontaine Fishing Association reward|
|Dockhand’s Assistant (four-star)||Bonus effect: Increases max HP
Skill: When Furina is healed, she gains a Stoic’s Symbol for 30 seconds. Maximum of three Symbols. When she uses her elemental skill or burst, she consumes all Symbols and gains the Roused effect for ten seconds. Each consumed Symbol gains 40 elemental mastery, and after two seconds, restores two energy. The Roused effect can trigger once every 15 seconds, and Symbols can appear even when Furina is off-field
|Favonius Sword||Bonus effect: Increases energy recharge
Skill: Crit hits have a 60% chance to generate a small amount of elemental particles, which regenerate six energy each for Furina. This can only occur once every 12 seconds
|Wolf Fang (four-star)||Bonus effect: Increases crit rate
Skill: Damage dealt by Furina’s elemental skill and burst increases by 16%. When an elemental skill or burst hits an opponent, the crit rate increases by 2%. Both effects last ten seconds, separately, and can stack up to four times
|Battle Pass reward|
What are the best Genshin Impact Furina artifacts?
Furina’s kit is all about elemental damage, even with her using a sword as a weapon. Her deployable animals constantly attack foes with hydro, so boosting her elemental damage bonuses is key. Obviously, a hydro-boosting two-piece will work on Furina if you don’t have much else, but there are better options.
|Artifact||Effect||How to obtain|
|Golden Troupe||Two equipped: Increases elemental skill damage
Four equipped: Increases Furina’s elemental skill damage by 25%. When she is not on field, her elemental skill damage further increases by another 25%. This clears two seconds after she takes the field
|Denouement of Sin domain|
|Marechaussee Hunter||Two equipped: Increases normal and charged attack damage
Four equipped: When Furina’s current HP increases or decreases, her crit rate increases by 12% for five seconds. This can stack three times
|Denouement of Sin domain|
|Vourukasha’s Glow||Two equipped: Increases HP

|Molten Iron Fortress domain|
|Nymph’s Dream||Two equipped: Increases hydro damage
Four equipped: After Furina’s normal, charged, and plunging attacks, elemental skills, or elemental bursts hit opponents, she triggers one stack of Mirrored Nymph. When under the effect of one, two, or three stacks, her attack increases by 7/16/25%, and hydro damage bonus increases by 4/9/15%

What is Genshin Impact Furina’s constellation?
While we don’t know what her constellations do right now, we can speculate a little about her kit thanks to the name of her constellation -Animula Choragi. This translates roughly to ‘leader of a little soul chorus’.
