All enemies marked with the seeds get linked if they are in a certain proximity to each other. You can then use the Tri Karma Purification effect to deal damage to all of them by hitting only one with the Elemental Reaction or with DMG from dendro cores like Burgeon. The Tri-Karma Purification deals dendro damage according to Nahida’s elemental mastery and attack stats. 

However, you can only trigger one Tri Kaa Purification within a short duration.

Best Nahida Party Members 

Nahida can be equipped as a main DPS, sub DPS or even as a hybrid of the two. Her playstyle will vary greatly based on the other members of her team. 

We recommend pairing her with one Pyro, Hydro or Electro character. You should also use her elemental burst and aimed elemental skill to mark opponents and deal considerable damage. 

The best characters to add to a team with Nahida are a hydro healer like Kokomi, Hydro support like Yelan or dendro support like Dendro Traveller and Cyno. 

Best Nahida Artifacts 

You can boost Nahida’s dendro damage by adding a player with four-piece Deepwood Memories on your team. This artifact decreases enemies’ Dendro resistance. Thus, Nahida will be able to deal more damage to opponents, and they won’t be able to defend themselves.

Apart from the four-piece deep wood memories artifact, the four-piece Gilded Dreams Artifact is also a great choice. It is set for an 80% increase in Elemental Mastery with the two-piece and an elemental type buff based on the other team members when all full four-piece are equipped.
