Rank No GI Best Raiden Teams Best ForCharacters
1HyperbloomHyperbloom reactionRaiden, Yelan, Nahida, Kokomi
2Raiden DPSHypercarry Raiden, Kujou Sara, Kazuha, Bennett

1. Hyperbloom Comp 

The Best Hyperbloom Comp.

One of the first teams to try out features characters such as Raiden Shogun, Kokomi, Nahida, and Yelan in a detonating hyperbloom team. 

  • Why I Chose This Team: Raiden combined with Nahida can deal detonating Hyperbloom damage. 

The roles of each of the characters are mentioned as follows: 

  • Raiden Shogun: Main DPS + Electro applicator 
  • Yelan: Sub-DPS + Bloom proc 
  • Nahida: Dendro Sub-DPS + Dendro applicator 
  • Kokomi: Healer 

The pros and cons of using Raiden in the Raiden Shogun Best Teams are as follows, in my opinion: 

  • Raiden can be an excellent Hyperbloom character. 
  • Nahida can target Dendro on enemies. 
  • Raiden is not available on Standard. 

Raiden Shogun

One of the first characters happens to be Raiden Shogun in the Best Raiden Teams in Genshin Impact. 

She is a five-star Electro Polearm user whose main role in the team is to mark enemies with Electro and deal massive Electro damage using her Elemental Burst. 

She uses the Flower of Paradise Lost or the Emblem Set for this particular team comp, in my opinion: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK%/EM
  • Goblet: Electro Damage Bonus/EM
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate/EM

Yelan

As far as Yelan is concerned, she is a five-star Bow character who can deal insane Hydro damage. 

While in the Genshin Impact Best Raiden Teams, she can string together enemies with her Elemental Skills while consistently applying Hydro to proc Bloom with Nahida in the team. 

She uses the four-piece Emblem of Severed Fate with the Favonius Warbrow or the Aqua Simulacra as her weapon of choice: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Hydro Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 

Nahida

Regarding Nahida, she is a five-star Dendro Sub-DPS, and the Dendro teams archon herself in Genshin Impact, who can be very useful in hyperbloom-based teams. 

While she is a part of the team, her role mainly consists of applying Dendro on enemies with her Elemental Skill while also proccing Hyperbloom with Yelan and Raiden Shogun. 

She uses the 4 piece Deepwood Memories for her artifacts with the Solar Pearl in my experience: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: EM
  • Goblet: EM 
  • Circlet: EM 

Kokomi

Last but not least, as far as Kokomi is concerned, she is a five-star Hydro character who wields a catalyst and can be a crucial component for your team. 

In the Genshin Raiden Shogun Teams, she not only heals the team but also consistently applies hydro with her Elemental Skill and procs Bloom. 

She uses the 4 piece Ocean Hued Clam with the Prototype Amber as per my experience: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: HP%
  • Goblet: HP% 
  • Circlet: Healing Bonus 

2. Raiden Centric Team 

The Best Raiden DPS Comp.

Moving on, another team that you should not miss out on is Raiden, Kujou Sara, Kazuha, and Bennett. 

  • Why I Chose This Team: Raiden as a hyper carry can render enemies useless combined with Kujou Sara.

The roles of each of the characters in the teams are mentioned as follows below: 

  • Raiden Shogun: Main DPS + Electro DPS 
  • Kujou Sara: Support + Crit Damage Buffer
  • Kazuha: Support + Crowd Control 
  • Bennett: Healer + Attack Buffer 

The pros and cons of using the Raiden as a DPS are as follows in my opinion: 

  • Kazuha can provide excellent swirl reactions. 
  • Bennett’s attack buffs are insane. 
  • Kazuha is not a Standard character. 

Raiden Shogun 

First, Raiden is a crucial component as she is the main character in her Genshin Impact Best Raiden Teams. 

She acts as the main DPS by dealing with high Electro AoE damage using her Elemental Burst, and she can also give teammates Electro damage in their attacks with her Elemental Skill. 

She uses the 4 piece Emblem set with the Catch as her best-in-slot weapon in my experience: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Electro Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 

Kujou Sara 

As far as Kujou Sara is concerned, she is a four-star Electro character who wields a bow, and she can be an excellent support. 

She mainly focuses on providing attack bonuses to her allies, and her Elemental Burst allows her to increase Crit Damage for Raiden. 

She uses the Emblem set as well, combined with the Stringless as her weapon of choice: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Hydro Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 

Kazuha

When it comes to Kazuha, he is a five-star Anemo team  character who wields a sword, and he is probably one of the best supporters in-game. 

While on-field, he can swirl Electro using his ELemental Burst, gather enemies with his Elemental Skill, and buff Raiden. 

He uses the 4 piece Viridescent Venereer set with the Iron Sting as his weapon: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Hydro Damage Bonus 
  • Circlet: Crit Damage/Crit Rate 

Bennett

Lastly, as far as Bennett is concerned, he is a four-star sword user who still cannot be outshined since his release at the start of Genshin. 

While he is in the team, he can apply Pyro, and with his Elemental Burst, he can provide insane attack buffs to Raiden and Heal his teammates. 

He can use the four-piece Noblesse Oblige with a weapon that has a high base attack in my experience: 

  • Flower: Flat HP 
  • Feather: Flat ATK 
  • Sands: HP%
  • Goblet: HP% 
  • Circlet: HP%
