Akuomaru Genshin Impact Stats

Akuomaru's main stat will provide additional ATK stats and additional ATK% in the second stat. So, very good especially for DPS characters.

The additional total ATK granted is 42 at level 1, up to 510 at level 90. In addition, the added ATK% will grant 9% ATK at level 1 to 41.3% ATK at level 90.

Besides increasing ATK and Crit DMG, characters using Akuomaru will also get a bonus called Watatsumi Wavewalker.

Watsumi Wavewalker will provide increased DMG from Elemental Burst of this weapon user. 

For each point of the entire party's combined maximum Energy capacity, the Elemental Burst DMG of the character using the weapon will increase by 0.12% at refinement 1. At max refinement (R5), Elemental Burst DMG increases by 0.24%.

The maximum Elemental Burst increase without refinement will give a 40% increase at refinement 1. At R5, the maximum Elemental Burst DMG is 80%.

Ability bonuses Watsumi Wavewalker is one of the unique weapon bonuses.

Watatsumi Wavewalker will calculate the total Elemental Energy from Elemental Burst needed by all the characters in the party you use.

That means, the more total needs (Energy Cost) needed by the characters in the party, the stronger the Elemental Burst DMG that can be given by Akuomaru users.

Character Recommendations

As previously discussed, Akuomaru will be very suitable for use by characters, especially Genshin Impact DPS characters in general.

The high base ATK and additional ATK% will make DPS with any element including Physical DPS have great DMG.

VCGamers thinks Akuomaru will be very suitable for use by the character whose talent kit focuses on using Elemental Burst as the source of the biggest DMG generator compared to other talent characters.

From the results of the VCGamers experiment, Akuomaru will be most suitable for Burst DPS builds such as Diluc, Chongyun, Dehya, Eula, and Razor.

The five characters are suitable for you to build with a build that has a focus on dealing DMG and attacking using Elemental Burst because the DMG scaling of Elemental Burst characters is quite large.

Apart from the characters already mentioned, other characters that can also be built with a focus on Elemental Burst DMG such as Kaveh, Xinyan, and Beidou are still possible to use this weapon. 

VCGamers doesn't recommend Arataki Itto and Noelle because both characters need more DEF stats. Likewise with Sayu and Dori who need the Energy Recharge stat.
