Players without constellations can use all of the aforementioned components of Kirara’s toolkit. This could make Genshin Impact players and followers of this nekomata youkai doubt the value of purchasing her constellations. Although some players might find it intriguing, it should be noted that her constellations do offer benefits beyond only bolstering the power of her current kit.
Genshin Impact’s forthcoming Kirara is a 4-star Dendro character that will make her debut in patch 3.7. She is one of the few nekomata characters in the game and a courier for Komaniya Express, a delivery service in Inazuma. Here is a summary of all of Kirara’s talents, passives, constellations, ascension materials, and more. The kit was leaked by playtesters who had access to the patch 3.7 beta.
Kirara: Ascension materials
Kirara needs the following materials for her ascension:
- Everamber (Guardian of Apep’s Challenge Reward)
- Amakumo Fruit
- Spectral Husk/Heart/Nucleus
- Teachings/Guides/Philosophies of Transience
- Evergloom Ring (Iniquitous Baptists)
Are Kirara Constellations worthwhile?
Kirara is completely playable at C0, however, it’s important to note that her subsequent constellations provide intriguing gameplay features like enhanced Dendro application and team-wide Elemental DMG Bonus. Players don’t need to bother about unlocking her constellations if their main interest is in her shielding capabilities. However, those looking for a complete support character might want to think about putting money into one of her later constellations. It’s crucial to note that her early constellations don’t offer much extra value, so players could need to spend a lot of Primogems. Fortunately, because she is a 4-star character and not a limited character, her constellations become more accessible over time. Instead, they can choose to slowly accumulate her constellations over time.
In any case, she values her fourth and sixth constellations the highest, whereas she places less importance on her first and second constellations.
C1 – Material Circulation
- Effect: When Kirara performs Secret Art: Surprise Dispatch, she will produce one extra Cat Grass Cardamom for every 8,000 Max HP she has. In this method, a maximum of four extras can be produced.
- Importance: Medium
When Kirara uses her Burst, she creates and disperses particles that, after 12 seconds or when they come in contact with an ally, explode, delivering a significant amount of damage. She can produce more particles with this constellation, which could be useful for more burst-supporting features or more Dendro applications. Apart from this potential, it doesn’t provide much value because the damage done by the smaller particles scales poorly compared to the damage caused by her burst explosion.
C2 – Perfectly Packaged
- Effect: Kirara will provide other party members Critical Transport Shields when she smashes into the Urgent Neko Parcel condition of Meow-teor Kick. Critical Transport Shield will absorb Dendro DMG with 250% efficiency, which is 40% more efficient than the standard Shields of Safe Transport that Meow-teor Kick is capable of. The Critical Transport Shields last for 12 seconds and can be used once every 10 seconds on each character.
- Importance: Low
Players that frequently participate in co-op and have received Baizhu, another shielding Dendro character, may have noted that Baizhu’s Ultimate ability does not let him to shield other team members. In this way, Kirara’s second constellation—which necessitates her to crash into the nearby co-op team members—aims to promote shield generation for team members. Although this shield increases damage absorption, it is a specialised constellation that is only useful in co-op and has little use in complex end-game content like the Spiral Abyss. Therefore, for a varied gaming experience, it is not as valuable as the other constellations.
C4 – Steed of Skanda
- Effect: Kirara will execute a team attack with the active character(s) using Small Cat Grass Cardamoms, dealing 200% of her ATK as Dendro DMG when the active character(s) hit opponents with Normal, Charged, or Plunging Attacks while shielded by Shields of Safe Transport or Critical Transport Shields. This fashion deals with Elemental Burst DMG. You can activate this effect once every 3.8 seconds. The entire party has access to this CD.
- Importance: Priority
By enabling more coordinated assaults when the active character on the field has a shield provided by Kirara and executes normal, charged, and plunging strikes, Kirara’s fourth constellation significantly improves the gameplay value of her kit. Her ability to be a Dendro facilitator is substantially improved by this constellation, giving her a more appealing choice for team setups that emphasise Dendro elemental responses. It is important to keep in mind, though, that Kirara’s effect has a 3.8-second cooldown, making it slower but still useful for producing Dendro Cores or starting spread reactions, in contrast to characters like Xingqiu or Raiden Shogun who can initiate coordinated attacks with little to no internal cooldown (ICD).
C6 – Countless Sights to See
- Effect: Within 15 seconds of Kirara using her elemental skill or burst, all adjacent party members will receive a 12% all-elemental DMG bonus.
- Importance: High
When Kirara triggers her Skill or Burst, her final constellation offers a basic team-wide boon that raises Elemental DMG for the whole team. Kirara can maintain this boost throughout the entire conflict without exerting extra effort thanks to the lengthy duration of this buff and the short cooldowns of her skill and burst. To fully unlock her potential as a supporting character beyond her shielding skills, players trying to acquire her fourth constellation may also consider getting her fifth and sixth constellations.
