How to build Layla in Genshin Impact to sleep and play none death

If you have questions about how to build Layla in Genshin Impact to sleep and play none death, ensuring the safety of other characters, you can explore the building techniques together in this article from FINDUID.

Genshin Impact is a cross-platform game available on both laptops, PCs, and mobile devices, attracting a significant player base. This is a dedicated overview about how to build Layla in Genshin Impact. FINDUID provides detailed guidance on Layla’s equipment and builds a suitable team for the character.

Overview of Layla in Genshin Impact (Ice Type)

Layla is a 4-star support character with a strong shield-creating ability, second only to Zhongli. Thanks to her skill set and constellation, Genshin Impact players can build Layla in two main directions: pure support, maximizing her health to strengthen the shield. She generates a "hybrid" build, balancing support and damage-dealing capabilities. 

Layla is a student among many researchers at the Rtawahist School, specializing in the study of Imaginary Theory, stargazing, and writing dissertations both day and night. Due to high expectations from teachers, topics are always piled up on her desk, and no matter how hard she tries, she can never finish them all. Layla suffers from severe sleep deprivation, and even when looking at a blank sheet of paper, she can see stars spinning in front of her eyes.

Although she has not been at the Institute for long, Layla has already earned many peculiar nicknames: 'Dream Voyager,' 'Mobile Computer,' 'Divinely Endowed Dissertation.' All of these are nicknames given by acquaintances.

How to build TDV for Layla in Genshin Impact

As a support character with limited field presence, Layla will need relatively efficient energy recharge stats to use her ultimate ability each time it's ready. In general, you should meet the following benchmarks:

  • 180% energy recharge efficiency if Layla is the sole Cryo character.

  • 140% - 160% if there are 2 Cryo characters.

  • 100% - 110% if there are 3 Cryo characters.

These numbers may vary depending on other team members. For example, the presence of characters like Fischl or Raiden can significantly reduce the need for energy recharge efficiency. Key stats for Layla's support role include:

  • Sands: % HP or % energy recharge.

  • Goblet: % HP or % Cryo damage.

  • Circlet: % HP or % critical rate.

Remember that Layla's energy regeneration and Cryo application depend on her shield, making % HP more crucial than other stats.

The optimal artifact set for Layla's support role in the current meta (patch 4.0) is the 4-piece Shimenawa's Reminiscence set because it not only boosts Layla's HP but also provides a buff to teammates. However, you can also consider using other sets such as:

  • 4-piece Blizzard Strayer.

  • 2-piece Shimenawa's Reminiscence and 2-piece Shimmering Vourukasha.

  • 4-piece Noblesse Oblige.

  • 4-piece Wanderer's Troupe.

  • Any combination of 2 Shimenawa's Reminiscence, 2 Blizzard Strayer, and 2 Noblesse Oblige is viable as well.

Weapons for Layla

The final step in Sforum's Layla building guide is the weapon selection. In fact, there aren't many suitable weapons for Layla at the moment, as only the Khaj-Nisut Key, has the main stat of % HP. This weapon is excellent for Layla in every aspect. If you don't have this weapon, you can consider:

  • Primordial Jade Cutter: This expensive choice provides Layla with noteworthy stats, from the +20% HP effect to a relatively high crit rate. Pay attention to not waste these stats if using her in a Freeze team.

  • The Unforged / Favonius Greatsword: These weapons help Layla have elemental damage and crit rate but only when you want to build her towards damage. However, as Sforum mentioned, Layla scales with HP, so the attack stats of these two weapons are somewhat wasted. They are only as strong as The Alley Flash.

  • The Alley Flash: Suitable for Layla supports. Even if Layla has excess energy recharge stats, it is still very useful for charging teammates and thereby increasing the team's DPS. However, you need a decent crit rate to activate its effect.

  • Amenoma, Skyward Blade, Sacrificial Greatsword, Thundering Pulse: These weapons have useful energy recharge stats for Layla, but other stats are not utilized. Use them only if The Alley Flash is occupied by another character.

  • Blackcliff Slasher, The Bell, Serpent Spine, Rainslasher: These weapons have attack stats, which are not ideal for Layla. It's better to prioritize weapons that provide HP or energy recharge for her support role.

Build a team for Layla in Genshin Impact

After completing the Layla build, we need to integrate her into a team that can make the most of the effects and stats she brings. Forum provides some examples that you can try applying right away:

  • Shielding Team: Whenever a shield is needed, you can use Layla. For example, Hutao, Layla, Xingqiu, Yelan.

  • Freeze Team: Pair Layla with a Cryo DPS character to unleash her recharging ability, create Cryo resonance, and easily buff her damage. For example, Ganyu, Layla, Mona, Venti.

  • Cryo Team: Referred to as "Cryo-focused," but you still need an Anemo character for buffs and resistance reduction. For example, Ganyu, Layla, Shenhe, Venti.

  • Melt Reaction: Layla can pair with a stronger Cryo character to recharge them, creating the Melt reaction. For example, Rosaria/Kaeya, Layla, Bennett, Jean.

  • Superconductor Team: Thanks to her continuous Cryo application, Layla is a good support for physical DPS characters, just needing to be paired with an Electro character. For example, Eula, Layla, Raiden/Fischl, Rosaria.
