Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu abilities
As can be expected, Kuki Shinobu’s complete characters are yet to be revealed by the developers. But, of course, we are not satisfied with that. Several rumors say that Kuki Shinobu is a sword wielder. Going along that line, the character’s primary attacks will be melee.
You can check back in from time to time to see if Kuki’s attacks are out or not.
Genshin Kuki Shinobu Elemental Skill – Sanctifying Ring
Kuki Shinobu has a Grass Ring of Sanctification for part of her HP and does Electro DMG to enemies that are near.
This Grass Ring of Sanctification dogs the currently active character and it does Electro DMG to enemies that are near every 1.5s. Plus, it restores HP for the active character looking at Kuki Shinobu’s Max HP. The HP needed for using this skill can fetch her just 20% of HP.
Genshin Kuki Shinobu Elemental Burst – Goei Narukami Kariyama Rite
Kuki Shinobu drives a sword right into the ground that makes up a barrier that will remove all that is foul, evil, and bad from the area, and does continuous Electro DMG opponents inside its AoE keeping in mind Kuki’s max HP. When Genshin Kuki Shinobu’s HP is less than or equal to 50%, use this skill, and the barrier will last longer.
This used to be a technique originally, that was used in weeding and ritual prayers for the annual harvests. And Kuki Shinobu has not forgotten that, even if the life of a shrine maiden is no longer her reality.

Top Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu Kuki Shinobu Artifacts
Artifact sets are one factor that decides the true value of a character in Genshin Impact. But here the fact is that since we know so little about Kuki Shinobu in the first place, it’ll be difficult to determine exactly which Artifact would suit her the best.
Predicting with whatever information we already have, Noblesse Oblige and Thundering Fury seem to be two awesome Artifact sets to use with this character.
Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu’s ascension material
If you want to get the most out of this Electro character, you’ll need to ascend her. And for that, you’ll need to farm the following.
- Naku Weed (x168): This material is a local product of Inazuma. Naku Weed is mainly found in the Tatarasuma region. Out of all the characters in Genshin Impact, only Kuki Shinobu and Yoimiya use the Naku Weed for ascension. A plus point here is that these can be grown in the Teapot Realm too. In fact, the Path of Value: Luxuriant Glebe item does just that.
- Vajrada Amethyst items: As has been made clear, Kuki Shinobu is an Electro character. So you will have to beat Thunder Manifestation or Electro Hypostases to get the Vajrada Amethyst items. The quantities in which you have to obtain these are:
- Vajrada Amethyst Fragment: 9
- Vajrada Amethyst Gemstone: 6
- Vajrada Amethyst Silver: 1
- Vajrada Amethyst Chunk: 9

You’ll need to collect the listed items that get dropped by Specters in the given quantities:
- Spectral Heart: 30
- Spectral Husk: 18
- Spectral Nucleus: 36
- Runic Fang (x46): This happens to be a brand new item that was released in version 2.6 of Genshin Impact. This peculiar item is dropped by the Ruin Serpent that is present in The Serpent’s Cave in The Chasm. And to obtain this, you’ll have to unlock The Chasm and finish the World Quest named Surreptitious Seven-Star Seal Sundering.
Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu’s talent level up materials
This is again one of the most crucial aspects to unlocking Kuki Shinobu’s true potential on the battlefield. If you want to level this character’s talents up to Lv. 10, you will have to arrange for the following items in the given quantities:
- Spectral Husks, Heart, and Nucleus:
- Spectral Husk: 6
- Spectral Heart: 22
- Spectral Nucleus: 31
- Talent books: This characteristic is common among all the Genshin Impact characters. Every character in this game needs talent books by which the total damage done by their Normal Attacks, Elemental Burst, and Elemental Skill can be increased. And Kuki Shinobu is no exception.
You’ll need to farm this character’s talent books. And to do this, you’ll have to pay a visit to the Violet Court domain. You’ll need these amounts:
