Best Build for Kafka

Kafka Head
  • Stars: ★★★★★
  • Element: Lightning Element Lightning
  • Path: The Nihility The Nihility
  • Release: 1.2

Kafka is a 5-star character from the Path of the Nihility and is the queen of Damage over Time (DoT), as she clearly is one of the characters that causes the most damage through this type of damage.

In fact, she is one of the few characters who can increase the damage she deals based on the DoTs applied to enemies, even if she didn't apply those DoTs herself.

This unique ability, combined with her substantial damage output in both Single Target and Multi-Target scenarios, enables quite powerful teams built entirely around Damage over Time. Without Kafka, these team compositions wouldn't perform nearly as well. She is the one who has made such team compositions possible, or rather, viable.

Kafka DoTer

Like most DoTers, Kafka shouldn't prioritize Critical stats since Damage over Time cannot land critical hits. Additionally, a crucial point for Kafka's build is to understand that, unlike other DoT characters, she requires very little Effect Hit Rate.
