Welcome to Pocket Gamer's detailed Genshin Impact Lisa guide! Lisa is a powerful mage and the Librarian for the Knights of Favonius. Not only is she a powerful witch, but a stern librarian and will often go out of her way to retrieve borrowed books that are overdue.

Don’t let her demeanour related to her taking her job seriously deter you, as she is relatively carefree outside of her responsibilities and enjoys a spot of afternoon tea to calm down after a tough day at work. In the Lisa guide below you will find the following features: 

Character Appearance

Lisa Appearance

Genshin Impact Lisa Element / Tier / Rarity / Weapon

Electro / B Tier / 4* Rarity / Catalyst

In Genshin Impact, Lisa is an Electro witch with strong reactions. Good to build in the earlier part of your game, her element works well with others, especially Cryo and Pyro. Her Elemental Skill is great for taking on mobs, and her Burst is the key to maximizing reactions.

How to get Lisa

Lisa can be obtained for free from the Prologue Act I: The Outlander Who Caught the Wind during the quest Sparks Amongst the Pages. She is also available in the standard banner.

Best Build for Lisa in Genshin Impact

Lisa is a decent Electro DPS and can create some reactions that make taking down lesser enemies a breeze. Focus on building her Elemental DMG to maximize her potential. Using the Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds weapon will give a boost to movement, plus an Elemental DMG boost every 4 seconds. Pair with the Thundering Fury artifact set to increase her Electro DMG and a full set will give a huge boost to Electro output.

Best Party Members to match Lisa with in Genshin Impact

Premium (Gacha) Team

In Genshin Impact, Lisa can act as a DPS to leave her Burst on the field for other reactions. Sucrose is a great catalyst to create Swirl and bolster Lisa’s Burst attack. Use Xingqiu as a good Hydro support to produce Electrocharge constantly. Zhongli is a great support to keep Lisa up and running and reduce her chance of stagger.

F2P Team

Lisa is going to be the Sub-DPS in this team, as she can set up reactions from a distance. Beidou will be used to boost Lisa’s Electro resonance and produce her own Electro-charge attacks. Get Support from the Traveler, as their Anemo can group enemies and control the chaos. Barbara will heal but will also be the source of Electro-Charge, as you move Beidou in to attack.
