Genshin Impact 4.8: Best Weapons for Emilie

Emilie is a Dendro 5-star character in Genshin Impact, hailing from Fontaine. She is the final 5-star character before the release of the Pyro nation, Natlan. Emilie is a Polearm character focused on the Burning reaction. Her entire kit is centered around dealing and buffing Burning damage in Genshin Impact.

Like every other character in Genshin Impact, you have to carefully consider the weapon you choose for Emilie. Fortunately, polearms are one of the most beloved weapons in Genshin Impact and come with a variety of options. Emilie is a pretty flexible character and can work with most polearm weapons. In this guide, we take a look at the best weapons for Emilie in Genshin Impact.

What are the Best Weapons for Emilie in Genshin Impact

Emilie’s signature weapon, Lumidouce Elegy, is the best weapon for her. However, as it is a limited-time weapon only available alongside Emilie’s banner, many players won’t have access to her signature weapon. There’s no need to worry, as Emilie can be impressive even with 4-star polearms like Prospector’s Drill. Let’s go over the details of Emilie’s best 5-star and 4-star polearm options:

Best 5-star weapons for Emilie

1) Lumidouce Elegy

Base Attack608
Sub Stat33.1% Crit Rate
PassiveATK increased by 15%. When the equipping character triggers Burning on an opponent or deals Dendro DMG to Burning opponents, the DMG dealt is increased by 18%. This effect lasts for 8s, max 2 stacks. When 2 stacks are reached or when the duration of the 2nd stack is refreshed, restore 12 Energy. Energy can be restored this way once every 12s. The 2 aforementioned effects can be triggered even when the character is off-field.

Lumidouce Elegy is a beautiful polearm adorned with shiny azure crystals in Genshin Impact. This weapon comes with a high base attack of 608 and a useful 33.1% Crit Rate at max level. Lumidouce Elegy’s weapon buffs the wearer’s DMG when the Burning reaction happens nearby or the wearer deals Dendro DMG.

Being her signature weapon, Emilie can flawlessly make use of Lumidouce Elegy’s passive skill. Whether you want to play Emilie as an on-field or off-field character, Lumidouce Elegy can fit into all Emilie builds.

2) Calamity Queller

Genshin Impact Calamity Queller
Base Attack741
Sub Stat16.5% ATK
PassiveGain 12% All Elemental DMG Bonus. Obtain Consummation for 20s after using an Elemental Skill, causing ATK to increase by 3.2% per second. This ATK increase has a maximum of 6 stacks. When the character equipped with this weapon is not on the field, Consummation’s ATK increase is doubled.

While playing Emilie, you will be using her skill, Fragrance Extraction, to apply Dendro to the enemies on the field. Since you are using your elemental skill a lot, the passive of Calamity Queller comes in quite handy. Her skill only has a cooldown of 14 seconds, so you can have two stacks of the passive up and running. Moreover, the ATK buff gets doubled if Emilie is off-field, which is her main playstyle.

3) Primordial Jade Winged-Spear

Genshin Impact Primordial Jade-Winged Spear
Base Attack674
Sub Stat22.1% Crit Rate
PassiveOn hit, increases ATK by 3.2% for 6s. Max 7 stacks. This effect can only occur once every 0.3s. While in possession of the maximum possible stacks, DMG dealt is increased by 12%.

Primordial Jade Winged-Spear is one of the oldest weapons in Genshin Impact. Being a standard 5-star polearm, many players might have obtained a copy from either the Weapon or Standard banners. Primordial Jade Winged-Spear isn’t really the best option for Emilie, but if you don’t have any other choice, it can do well for an on-field Emilie DPS build. Its passive can grant you plenty of attack stats on top of its already high base attack.

Best 4-star Weapons for Emilie

1) Prospector’s Drill

Genshin Impact Prospector's Drill
Base Attack565
Sub Stat27.6% ATK
PassiveWhen the wielder is healed or heals others, they will gain a Unity’s Symbol that lasts 30s, up to a maximum of 3 Symbols. When using their Elemental Skill or Burst, all Symbols will be consumed and the Struggle effect will be granted for 10s. For each Symbol consumed, gain 3% ATK and 7% All Elemental DMG Bonus. The Struggle effect can be triggered once every 15s, and Symbols can be gained even when the character is not on the field.

Prospector’s Drill is a 4-star polearm available only via limited-time Weapon banners. If you managed to pull one from the Weapon banner, you can consider using it on Emilie. However, you will need to have a healer to make use of the weapon’s passive effect. When Emilie gets healed, Prospector’s Drill will grant her the Struggle effect for up to three stacks. This effect can be used to gain attack and DMG bonus when an elemental skill or burst is used.

2) Lithic Spear

Genshin Impact Lithic Spear
Base Attack565
Sub Stat27.6% ATK
PassiveFor every character in the party who hails from Liyue, the character who equips this weapon gains a 7% ATK increase and a 3% CRIT Rate increase. This effect stacks up to 4 times.

Lithic Spear is one of the most niche weapons in Genshin Impact, as its passive only works when you have at least one Liyue character in your team. If you can have three characters from the Liyue region in your party, Lithic Spear will give you a 21% ATK bonus and 9% Crit Rate. Here are two teams where Emilie can make use of Lithic Spear:

  • Reverse Melt team: Ganyu, Emilie, Xiangling, Bennet ( or Zhongli)
  • Burgeon Team: Emilie, Xingqiu, Yelan, Thoma

3) Missive Windspear

Genshin Impact Missive Windspear
Base Attack510
Sub Stat41.3% ATK
Passive (R5)Within 10s after an Elemental Reaction is triggered, ATK is increased by 24% and Elemental Mastery is increased by 96.

Missive Windspear is one of the F2P polearms in Genshin Impact. It was handed out in the “Of Ballads and Brews” limited-time event a long time ago. If you were able to claim it, then feel free to use it on Emilie. Missive Windspear is a pretty simple weapon with a decent attack value coming from its base attack and sub stat.

The attack stat can be further boosted by triggering an elemental reaction alongside a sweet Elemental Mastery boost. This weapon is a good pick for players who also want to deal decent Burning damage to enemies.


These are the best weapons for Emilie in Genshin Impact, according to my experience. You can also go with Battlepass polearms (Deathmatch or Ballad of the Fjords), but they are not very impressive. If you want to focus on Burning damage, go for weapons with Elemental Mastery like the 5-star Staff of the Scarlet Sands or 4-stars like Dragon’s Bane and Moonpiercer.
