diona di Genshin Dampak Impact it’s a bit difficult to pair with a good weapon, especially since he’s a rare example of one of the characters that really only works well with weapons rated four or higher. While this seems easy enough since most of the available bows are four-star or higher, it also means they’re more difficult to find or obtain through Wish Events.
He also burns up his stamina very quickly, so adding to the complexity of getting a powerful weapon is the need for Energy Recharge substats. Many of the bows only offer increased Attack or increased Damage but not much for Energy Refills. While there are many factors to consider when arming Diona, all hope is not dashed.
5 Recurve Bow – Three Stars
While Diona works best with four-star weapons, the Recurve Bow is one exception – thankfully for anyone new to Diona or with the fewer bow options available. You’ll most likely have these in your inventory as you can get them through Wish Events or opening chests scattered around the map. Many Genshin Impact weapon guides will also immediately mention Diona as a recommended character to equip the Recurve Bow, although rarely the other way around.
However, with limited weapons and the newly acquired Diona, this combination will work well enough until you level it up and get a more suitable weapon. You won’t get the Refill Energy Diona needs with this bow, but you will get health bonuses like an additional ten percent of HP for equipping it, and eight percent of HP restored with each opponent defeated.
4 The Stringless – Four Star
Stringless is much more commonly recommended for other bow users – such as Amber, Fischl, or even Ganyu – but will work with Diona in lieu of another four-star bow that suits her better. While it used to be a rarer pull, you can now get it at normal speed via one of the Wish Banners- Standard, Featured, or Weapon Banners.
Equipping him with Stringless would give him a 24 percent increase in his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst damage, amplifying his attacks. You’ll also get a bonus of between 36 and 165 Elemental Mastery depending on Diona’s level.
3 Sacrificial Bow – Four Star

Diona fans will most likely refer you to one of the two bows when choosing a weapon for her, and the Sacrificial Bow is one of them. This is largely due to the fact that Diona has such a long cooldown period, and the Sacrificial Bow has a high Energy Recharge rate and a chance to increase your cooldown. Luckily, getting the Sacrificial Bow is pretty easy, as it can be found on the Standard Banner, Featured Banner, and Weapon Banner when you use Wishes.
Energy Refills on Sacrificial Bows ranged from extraordinary to extraordinary, with stat bonuses ranging from 6.7 percent to 30.6 percent, depending on Diona’s level. Another advantage of using this bow over the others is the 40 percent chance of ending its cooldown level once you’ve used it to damage enemies. This will happen every 30 seconds after you reach it.
2 The Favonius Warbow – Four Star
Another bow that is most often recommended for Diona is the Favonius Warbow. You’ll see this debated against the Sacrificial Bow or Stringless for many bow users in Genshin Impact as it has a lot of advantages to offer. Just like the Sacrificial Bow, you can draw it using your Wishes in the Standard Banner, Featured Banner, or Weapon Banner, so which of these two rivals you choose depends on your personal preference when building your Diona.
Diona’s level will determine the Energy Recharge you get from equipping this weapon, but the range is 13.3 percent to 61.3 percent. Another bonus this bow gives is that your critical hit with Diona will have a 60 percent chance of producing a small amount of Elemental Particles, which in turn will yield her six energies. This will happen in 12 second intervals, allowing for much faster energy rejuvenation, something Diona desperately needs during battle.
1 Elegy To The End – Five Star
The only five-star bow that will pair well with Diona, if you’re lucky enough to pull it off the Weapons Event Wish Banner, Elegy for the End will be a huge help. Still, the best thing about Diona is that she doesn’t need the most luxurious weapon with the most upgrades, so don’t worry if you can’t get one yet.
Energy Refill with Elegy ranges from 12 percent to 55.1 percent depending on the level. Elegy will also increase Elemental Mastery by 60, and when you deal damage with Diona’s Elemental Skills or Burst, you gain Sigils. With the Sigils you gain, you can then increase your Elemental Mastery by 100, and your Attack will increase by 20 percent for up to four Sigils.
