Danjin Overview

In Wuthering Waves, Danjin is a 4-Stars Havoc character and uses Sword during the fight.

Her travels across the lands serve as a constant pursuit to deepen her understanding of the essence of good and evil.
Despite the lurking perils that lie in every corner of her path, she solemnly swears to purge the world of villainy.

Danjin Review

Danjin is a 4-Star Havoc character in Wuthering Waves.

High damage, low survivability. Among 4-star characters, Danjin has the highest overall damage output. The Resonance Chain benefits are the highest among 4-star characters.

With a smooth-damage output flow, a high Resonance Chain Danjin has damage close to or even surpassing low Resonance Chain 5-star characters. Danjin has the shortest attack animation lock in the entire game. In a single damage output cycle, Resonance Skill damage and Heavy Attack account for approximately 45% and 42% respectively.

Danjin’s unique feature is that using Resonance Skill accumulates Forte Circuit Energy even if it doesn’t hit the enemy, thus in actual combat, the proportion of Heavy Attack damage will be higher.

Pros

  • Danjin has very high single-target damage, close to or even surpassing low Resonance Chain 5-star characters.
  • Danjin’s frequent, short animation-lock attacks make its operation extremely smooth.

Cons

  • Danjin consumes its own HP when using Resonance Skill, down to 1%, so without a shield, Danjin must be one-shot.
  • Although Danjin is not difficult to use, extreme caution is required in actual combat. A slight mistake can lead to death, and healing is meaningless for Danjin, resulting in a Simplicity score of only 1. Additionally, Danjin’s overly smooth output makes the damage boost from teammates less noticeable.

Danjin Team Comp

Danjin Best Team 

Morifei can provide a beneficial Heavy Attack Outro skill buff for Danjin, offering decent damage assistance. However, in practical combat situations, the effectiveness of Danjin’s Forte Circuit is limited due to the maximum of two uses within the 14-second duration of Morifei’s Outro skill buff.

In Morifei’s RC1 state, after activating Resonance Liberation, each use of Danjin’s Resonance Skill triggers Morifei’s synergistic attacks. Through actual testing, it has been observed that a single 3A3E combo from Danjin can trigger 8 consecutive synergistic attacks, surpassing even Jeiyan in terms of efficiency (in single-target environments).

Although Danjin does not require healing, the primary significance of a healer lies in prolonging the buffs from Sonata effect sets. Additionally, Virena’s inherent skill 2 provides a one-time “cheat death” effect, essentially granting an additional life.

Danjin Best Team 2

Taoqi’s role is to provide shields for Danjin, safeguarding him from being defeated by enemies when his health is critically low. Moreover, Taoqi can boost the damage of Danjin’s Resonance Skill, offering a significant damage support effect.

Healer – Verina/Baizhi

Verina’s healing abilities and Concerto Energy acquisition abilities are both greater than Baizhi’s, making her the preferred healer character. Verina’s Inherent Skill provides a one-time death immunity effect. Baizhi also has a similar effect that is even better, but it requires unlocking at Sequence 5.

Verina’s healing amount is based on her ATK, so Verina has a certain degree of damage output. If you build it well, her damage should not be underestimated.

Verina’s Inherent Skill can provide a 20% attack buff to the entire team, while Baizhi can only provide a 15% attack buff to a single character.

More Build Guides

Rover

In the current version, you can obtain 4 free Resonance Chains. With the support of the Resonance Chain effect, although each rotation’s damage is lower than that of five-star characters, it is still quite outstanding compared to four-star characters with low Resonance Chains.

However, since there are no additional means to obtain Resonance Chains in the current version, it appears weaker when compared to four-star characters with high Resonance Chains. It is suitable for F2P (Free-to-Play) players to develop. Rover S6 possesses the game’s only RES Reduction effect, which can boost the team’s damage by at least 11.1%, showing future potential.

Rover Havoc

The base stats are much higher than 4-star characters and slightly lower than 5-star characters. However, the Skill Rate and forms are quite excellent, featuring different attack modes in normal and Dark Surge states. During the burst phase, skill multipliers are comparable to five-star characters like Jiyan or Calcharo.

After entering Dark Surge, it boasts outstanding single-target damage output, and the high multiplier Resonance Liberation along with the Echo “Dreamless” also provide decent AoE capabilities.

Verina

After the strengthening in the OBT, the consumption rate of Photosynthesis Energy has been greatly increased. Consuming one layer of Photosynthesis Energy grants 12 Concerto Energy, significantly reducing Verina’s on-field time requirement. At the same time, her Healing Efficiency has been greatly improved, addressing the awkward situation during CBT3 where she couldn’t keep up with Baizhi.

Due to the special nature of the Healer role’s Outro Skill, a healer is essential for the Main DPS to deal maximum damage, underscoring Verina’s indispensability. Additionally, since Verina’s healing is based on her attack power, she also possesses output capability, which, though not outstanding, is still significant. Of course, this is contingent on Verina being built correctly.
