Genshin Impact Ningguang Outfits
Outfits for Genshin Impact are an equipment category of the game that are usually featured in special events or purchased via the Character Outfit Shop. These change the appearance of a Playable Character that can be previewed and worn in the Dressing Room. Outfits are purely cosmetic, and add no real stats or strength to any character that has them equipped, meaning they are not helpful in progressing the game.
- Orchid's Evening Gown: Ningguang's formal wear. The long cyan skirt traces her elegant curves, and the butterfly wings at her ankles lend the outfit a touch of light grace.
Genshin Impact Ningguang Guides and Builds
- Ningguang Strengths: High Elemental Burst DMG. High Scaling and unique attack where star Jades will increase damage, and while using them will not use up stamina.
- Ningguang Weaknesses: Slow attack animation that must be interrupted if choosing not to follow through. Some star jades from her burst ability may have targeting issues
- Ningguang Weaknesses: Best played using a combination of normal and charge attacks to obtain Star Jades and use less stamina. Using star jades will count as charge attack damage which will be affected by those corresponding buffs.
Ningguang Best Items
- The Widsith: Ningguang can benefit from 2 of the three different buffs it has. It also has a huge Crit Damage bonus, which allows building a Crit Rate Headpiece for good damage. It’s overall a great option, if you are lucky enough to get it.
- Eye of Perception: It has a big attack bonus secondary stat, and a damage proc every 12 seconds. It only falls short because it lacks any crit stats, so it’s a little worse than Royal Grimoire, but if you have it, you can save your Masterless Starglitter.
- Solar Pearl: Ningguang is one of the best characters that can utilize Solar Pearl among all Catalyst users. Solar Pearl increases damage of all her normal attack, her Elemental Skill, and her Elemental Burst, though it doesn’t work with her charged attack. So picking up this weapon might change the way you use Ningguang attacks.
Genshin Impact Ningguang the Geo Goddess Build
Ningguang is a four star character, that’s accessible through all banners, with an especially high rate when the Childe‘s banner was live. After three months in the game’s lifespan, all players will have a high chance of having most of the four star characters by now. Whether you have one constellation for Ningguang, or unlocked several constellations, she’s good as a Carry role. Her focus is dealing massive damage to a single target, so she needs another Geo support that focuses on AOE.
For the second Geo character, Noelle can be good. But for optimal output, we use either of the five star Geo characters, Zhongli, or Albedo. That’s because Ningguang is a special case, a four star character but still one of the best characters with a Geo element, and five star characters are better off supporting her. If you pulled wishes for Zhongli, you will most likely have him, or if you skipped this banner, you will very likely have Albedo. I chose Albedo, because he’s a better support at zero constellations, and very cheap to build. He’s the definition of free to play friendly among all five star characters.
The team for the Geo Empress Build is composed of Ningguang, as main DPS and single target damage, Albedo for AOE and energy particles generation, then Diona as a healer, and a wild card for the last slot. You can swap the character in the last slot depending on your roster, and as the Spiral Abyss needs. Elemental combo is important, and with two party slots going for a natural element like Geo, you need a certain amount of flexibility. If you need Hydro go for Xingqiu, and for Pyro, pick Xiangling, or Xinyan. Choose either Fischl, Lisa or Beidou for Electro. That doesn’t mean you have to build all these characters for merely one slot in a party, but these are choices you can pick from.
We build Ningguang as a straight forward Geo DPS. So we need a Geo Damage Bonus, % Attack, Critical Rate, and Critical Damage. Finally, use some flat Attack and choosing some Energy Recharge would be nice.
If we are using the Royal Grimoire as a weapon, it would be more convenient to concentrating on building more Critical Damage than Critical Rate. The nature of Ningguang‘s attacks is that it hits several times per attack, so you are guaranteed to score several critical hits per attack even with a small Crit Rate bonus. This way, a relatively small Crit Rate is acceptable, especially if you are augmented by Royal Grimoire.

How to Get Ningguang in Genshin Impact
Ningguang Lore & Character Story
The "Liyue Qixing" controls all of the commerce that takes place in Liyue Harbor. Its highly revered position is also coveted by many. Their primary ruling is to play things safe and keep a low profile.
The "Tianquan" of the Qixing, Ningguang, is the only exception. She is seen as an excellent merchant in the eyes of her rivals, a friendly big-sister to kids, a socialite at the banquets of Yujing Terrace, and a connoisseur of desserts...
Ningguang is the talk of the town, and all seem to know everything about her. However, they all seem to tell a different story of Ningguang with great discrepancies between the versions.
Still, if there's one thing all rumors about her agree on, it's that Ningguang is someone truly extraordinary.
Character Story 1
(Unlocks at Friendship Lvl. 2)
Up above Liyue Harbor, there is a floating palace held up by plaustrite. It is known as the "Jade Chamber", and it belongs to Ningguang.
On a clear day, one can see almost all of Liyue Harbor from the decks outside the palace gates.
Whenever Ningguang has important business matters to handle, she invariably comes to this floating palace. She strictly forbids anyone from accessing the premises except for her three trusted confidants. Her confidants sort through the relevant information, summarize it and hang the summaries on the wall, while Ningguang rests against the railings, enjoying the view of Liyue and quietly mulling everything over.
She is certain to arrive at the perfect solution before her confidants have finished adding everything to the wall. Once she has made her decision she shreds everything and throws it out of the window, creating something of a snowstorm of paper.
The handwriting on the shredded pieces of paper stands out like ink in the snow to all of the merchants in Liyue Harbor. For they know that whenever Ningguang's shredded snow falls, a huge change is about to descend on the business community.
Character Story 2
(Unlocks at Friendship Lvl. 3)
"Ningguang knows everything," foreigners will often find the Liyue locals warning them. Loophole-hunting guilds, market-manipulating hoarders, smugglers coming ashore with their illicit goods... The Tianquan knows all the details, good, bad and ugly.
Once, an alchemist from Sumeru was traveling in Liyue and unwittingly happened across the records of a certain noctilucous jade transaction involving the Blackcliff Forge ten years prior. That night, someone from Ningguang's inner circle knocked on his window and invited him to join Ningguang in the Jade Chamber for a talk.
Rumor has it that Ningguang has enchanted the Jade Chamber in such a way that allows her to eavesdrop on everyone in the city's private conversations...
The truth is that Ningguang's eyes and ears are in fact the children who play on the streets in Liyue Harbor.
Between them, they are aware of every confidential meeting, every private conversation, and every new visitor to the city.
When Ningguang gathers them around, her promise of delicious treats proves to be an irresistible incentive, and so they tell her everything they know.
Once she has finished carefully cross-referencing everything she has learned from the children against other sources, there is no secret hidden from her in Liyue Harbor.
She understands the value of reciprocity more than anyone, which is why she is more than willing to invest time in mingling with the common folk.
On top of that, she does actually like seeing the children smile.
Character Story 3
(Unlocks at Friendship Lvl. 4)
Ningguang's attitude to making money is largely the same as anyone else's: you can never have enough.
But money to her is more than just a sign of wealth — each Mora is a trophy of a hard-won victory.
Ningguang is kind and friendly toward the common folk, but this is a side of her that none of her business associates could ever hope to see.
To her, the business world is a playground, and the zero sum games are the most exciting. Each round she wins against a wealthy merchant brings a gleeful smile to her face as they sigh and reluctantly hand over the Mora, and nothing makes her happier than seeing the guilds bow to her wishes.
Every victory in this games adds to the wealth of the Liyue Qixing. Liyue Harbor prospers as a result, and this in turn creates more business opportunities and more profit for Ningguang. Every member of the Liyue Qixing is more than happy with this perfect cycle of interlocking interests.
People often ask Ningguang why she is still doing business in Liyue Harbor when she has already acquired such vast wealth. "Vast wealth is a wonderful thing." Ningguang patiently replies, never able to understand why people would ask such a foolish question.
"Adding another Mora to the pot can hardly make it any less wonderful, now, can it?"
Character Story 4
(Unlocks at Friendship Lvl. 5)
Everyone living in Liyue Harbor has to abide by the rules. Those who do so will see their interests protected, while those who violate the rules will be punished accordingly.
The rules are rooted in ancient laws set down by Morax, Liyue Harbor's divine protector, and they are absolute. Over the millennia, each Tianquan has introduced amendments to the rules to ensure they are well aligned with current societal needs.
The laws are compiled and published along with a 279-page commentary, and a copy is given to each citizen of Liyue. Ningguang likes it that way: Law and order is good for business, and she understands the intricacies of the laws that forge the order better than anyone else.
However, there was a certain ship captain by the name of Beidou who acted with flagrant disregard for the rules, smuggling contraband goods by leveraging her exotic cargo and exclusive business intelligence. To Ningguang, captain Beidou was the black sheep of Liyue Harbor's business community.
As Tianquan, it fell to Ningguang to impose heavy fines on Beidou each time she transgressed the rules. But much to her consternation, Beidou seems to take these fines in her stride, like water off a duck's back.
Outside of the official channels, too, Ningguang tried to find ways to implore Beidou to change her ways and stop putting the Qixing in such a difficult position. In response, Beidou simply explained away her actions as "enacting justice," "helping the poor" and "keeping the sailors in their jobs." As a firm believer in the principle of live and let live, Beidou had no time for Ningguang's advice.
In the end, Ningguang agreed to disagree and gave up trying to convince the stubborn Beidou to change.
Character Story 5
(Unlocks at Friendship Lvl. 6)
Being the charming and wealthy woman that she is, Ningguang has never had a shortage of suitors. It seems that every eligible bachelor, from the young esquires of Yujing Terrace, to accomplished young businessmen, to renowned sea captains, has at some point invested substantial energy into trying to win Ningguang's affection. One rumor even has it that a wealthy businessman from the Court of Fontaine signed a major trade deal with Liyue Harbor for the sole reason that it would mean he could see Ningguang more often.
Ningguang treats all her suitors with an equal measure of kindness and grace, but also keeps them at distance — enough to keep them interested but not push them away. Curiosity got the better of everyone in town, and now everyone wants to know: Who is Ningguang's lover? Little do they know, Ningguang has no love for finite things, and will certainly not be bound by something that is finite.
The Jade Chamber, a floating palace above Liyue Harbor, belongs to Ningguang alone. It started out about the size of a room, but has since grown so large that in the moonlight it casts its shadow over the whole of Liyue.
A portion of Ningguang's seemingly limitless wealth goes towards hiring skilled craftsmen to continue the expansion and refurbishment of the Jade Chamber, ensuring that it becomes even more extravagant as time goes by.
To Ningguang, the Jade Chamber is a symbol of her wealth and power, and a sign that her business is flourishing. Save for Mora, it is the thing Ningguang loves most in the world - because it is infinite. One day she insists, it will cast its shadow over all the seven nations of Teyvat.
Chess Game: Liyue Millennial
(Unlocks at Friendship Lvl. 4)
Ningguang invented a form of chess to pass the time. This chessboard not only contains to-scale reproductions of Liyue Harbor's natural and urban geography, vendors, tea houses, shops, hotels and miscellaneous stores, but it also contains six, ten and twelve-sided dice (among others.) Players use the dice to determine how far their chess pieces move, and landing on various locations will trigger different events. Victory in-game is decided by the number of counters in each player's hands.
The rules can change at any time according to Ningguang's fancies, and when playing others, she will always follow the newest rule set that she has on hand.
When she's truly feeling the spirit, she will even design new rules on the spot — no one has yet beaten her at this game, and she has now reached the 32.6th edition of her rulebook.
She marketed the 8th edition of the game to the general public, believing it to be the easiest to understand, but it proved to still be far too complicated for ordinary folk.
Nonetheless, people flock to purchase sets on account of the beauty and intricacy of the model pieces.
In truth, more people buy it for the models than for the game.

No one knows how Visions are created — they have always seemed to just appear out of thin air, leaving the countless unacknowledged in the lurch without a clue as to how to get one.
As for Visions left behind after their users die, they are masterless husks without any elemental power, nor is any method of reawakening them known, save for a tiny chance that it may resonate with another — and only one such "other" at a time...
Ningguang's first thought upon seeing such an object a subconscious "oh, look, a new business opportunity." Putting this up for sale would surely have the rich shelling out for it. And if they can't resonate with it, why, they'll just use it to keep up appearances. A sound call either way...
And if there should be a way to collect such empty shells, could this not become a long-term business?
Playing with the jewel in one hand, Ningguang began writing plans for an auction in the other, her smile widening as she thought about the riches to be had — and at that moment, the Vision shone forth its light. Ningguang's smile froze as the Vision activated.
Her attendants, coming upon the sight of their mistress, awakened Vision in hand, began to congratulate her on having obtained a priceless treasure. Ningguang, for her part, seemed annoyed instead.
"What's there to be happy about? Once broken, considered sold!"
