The materials needed to improve Kuki Shinobu
Materials to improve skills
Obviously, you will not necessarily need to raise your 3 talents to the maximum level. The list below includes all the ingredients to pass all 3 to level 10.

Narukami Seeder Ritual

Increases the rewards of a 20-hour expedition in Inazuma by 25%.
Increases healing bonus by 15% when Kuki Shinobu’s HP is 50% or less.
Peace of heart
Ring of Consecration’s effect scales with Kuki Shinobu’s Elemental Mastery: • Increases healing by 75% of his mastery. • Increases DMG by 25% of his mastery.
To cloister compassion
Narukami’s Seeder Ritual area of effect increases by 50%.
To deny fortune
Duration of herb rings of consecration increased by 3 sec.
To sequester the sorrow
Ring of Consecration skill level +3.
To break the seal
When a normal, charged, or dipping attack from a character affected by Kuki Shinobu’s Consecration Herb Ring hits an enemy, a mark of thundering herbs is placed at the enemy’s location to inflict Electro DMG area equal to 9.7% of Shinobu’s max HP. This effect can be triggered once every 5 sec.
To stop courtesies
Narukami Seeder Ritual skill level +3.
To ward off weakness
When Kuki Shinobu takes lethal DMG, she is not defeated this time around. This effect triggers automatically when Kuki Shinobu has 1 HP and can be triggered once every 60s. When Kuki Shinobu’s HP drops below 25%, his Elemental Mastery increases by 150 for 15s. This effect can be triggered once every 60 sec.
Here is ideal for Kuki Shinobu would be 4 pieces of the set Thousandlith Tenacityon the one hand to gain in life points, but also to improve the ATK of your teammates, which makes the support side of the character even more practical.
For the weapon, if you have one oath of freedom lying around, this will be the perfect 5-star weapon for her. A Primal Jade Cutter will also do the trick, although a bit off. And when it comes to 4-star weapons, Iron Sting, Favonius Sword, and Lion’s Roar are great choices for her.
As for the main statistics on the last 3 pieces of equipment, favor HP% on the hourglass and the cup, and Healing bonus on the crown. And for statistics, focus on HP%, CRIT RATE, CRIT damage and Energy Refill.
Should we summon Kuki Shinobu?
It will actually depend on your needs on the Electro side. Let’s start with the “bad” news: To really monetize your place in your team, you will have to reach the 4th constellation of Kuki Shinobu, in order to add Electro damage in the circle, including when the ninja is not on the field.
It should be understood that Kuki Shinobu is above all a healer, who however has the advantage (because non-existent) of being an Electro type. And having her constellations makes her both an effective healer and a support that allows you to chain elemental reactions with another carry-type character. She accumulates so 2 roles in a team of Superconductiongiving you more flexibility.
In addition, it is disconcertingly easy to equip, because it really only needs one thing: Life points, a lot. Of course, she’s not perfect, and she’ll ask you to take a bit of a risk, because the lower her hit points, the better. And of course, his personal damage is not exceptional.
But if you play Superconduction for example, it can be a great alternative, and we recommend it!
