Shogun Raiden is one of the most powerful and recommended characters in Genshin Impact since she has great damage as Main DPS and also provides great support to her team through damage increases and energy generation (she's a very good battery). She can also be used as a Support DPS in physical compositions to activate Superconductor and we even have a very interesting variant for Dendro compositions based on Elemental Mastery. In all variants she has a phenomenal performance, although we prefer her as a Main DPS.

Shogun Raiden Main DPS

Shogun Raiden's standard Build and the most effective, is devastating due to her damage and the high support she'll give your team. We'll mainly be looking to maximize her damage, but also the energy generation she brings to her teammates. We must also pair her with characters with powerful Elemental Bursts to get the most out of her.

Shogun Raiden EM for Dendro Teams

A somewhat niche Raiden build, but quite popular. She won't be the Main DPS and we'll ignore her Elemental Burst, what we mainly want in this build is her constant and passive application of Electro through her Elemental Ability and all the Elemental Mastery possible to spam Elemental Reactions.
