In Genshin Impact, optimizing characters often requires strong constellations, and Mika is no exception as a specialized support character. Like Gorou and Kujou Sara, Mika’s C6 constellation is highly advantageous. Nevertheless, even without C6, Mika remains a valuable supporter and healer.
In Genshin Impact, Mika is a supporting character who focuses on buffing and healing physical damage dealers like Eula and Razor. As a Cryo character, Mika can also trigger the Superconduct reaction with Electro, reducing Physical Resistance by 40%.
However, Mika’s Cryo application is limited, which can affect his ability to trigger reactions effectively. Hence, players should include at least one more Cryo character in their team to enhance Mika’s supportive role. Mika’s low damage output makes him unsuitable as a primary DPS in Genshin Impact, but he excels as a supporting character.
Players should try to use His Elemental Burst often despite its high energy cost of 70 because it provides a valuable healing ability.
It is recommended to prioritize Energy Recharge and seek for at least 200% to ensure frequent usage. It can be further boosted by using additional Cryo characters or equipping multiple Favonius weapons on the team.
It is recommended to prioritize HP once Mika’s Energy Recharge requirement is met. HP is the primary stat that affects Mika’s healing capabilities. Thus, leveling Mika up to level 90 could be beneficial as characters that scale with HP tend to have greater usability at higher levels than those with ATK. However, the healing needed ultimately depends on the player’s preference.
Mika’s constellations in Genshin Impact have been classified into two sets, with three focusing on enhancing his buffs and the other three aiding his healing abilities. Each constellation’s personal effects and significance are outlined below for better understanding.
Mika’s constellations in Genshin Impact can be prioritized based on their significance, with C2, C5, and C6 being the most important. C2 enhances the buff’s efficacy, C5 boosts skill level, and C6 elevates him to the best Physical DPS support status. Meanwhile, C1, C3, and C4 are of lower priority as they primarily enhance Mika’s healing abilities.
Mika’s C1 constellation, called “Factor Confluence,” enables his Soulwind form to decrease the time gap between healing occurrences caused by Skyfeather Song’s Eagleplume form in the Starfrost Swirl ability.
The reduction in this interval percentage is proportional to the increase in Attack Speed from Soulwind. Nonetheless, the importance of this effect is relatively low. Mika’s healing naturally occurs every 2.5 seconds, but acquiring his C1 can reduce this interval by 22% at Skill level 10, leading to healing approximately every 2 seconds. Although players may find this helpful if Mika’s healing seems inadequate, it is often not a binding effect.
Mika’s C2 constellation, “Companion’s Ingress,” is highly prioritized because of its significant effect. When Mika’s Flowfrost Arrow or Rimestar Flare from the Starfrost Swirl ability hits an enemy for the first time, it creates one Detector stack for Mika’s “Suppressive Barrage” Passive Talent. This effect is advantageous only if the players have previously activated the “Suppressive Barrage” Passive Talent. Mika’s Physical DMG Bonus is useful, but its activation can be challenging. With C2, players can easily trigger the effect because the initial hit of his hold and tap Skills will always grant at least one stack, providing a consistent 10% Physical DMG Bonus.
The significance of Mika’s C4 constellation, called “Sunfrost Encomium,” is moderate as it offers a means of Energy restoration to Mika through his Skyfeather Song’s Eagleplume state when it heals other party members. The Eagleplume state created using Skyfeather Song can trigger this Energy restoration up to five times. However, this effect is not overly critical since Mika usually does not wield offensive weapons in Genshin Impact, and most players will have already equipped him with adequate Energy Recharge.
Mika’s C6 Constellation is undoubtedly the most important aspect of his kit. It allows him to grant a maximum of 40% Physical Damage Bonus, making him the best Physical DPS support in the game. In addition, active characters affected by his Soulwind state will receive a massive 60% boost in Physical Critical Damage, which is especially useful for characters like Eula, who rely heavily on critical hits. Mika is a must-have for players prioritizing Physical DPS in their team compositions.
