Bodily DMG builds, often known as “Machine Gun” builds, of Fischl and Amber can even reliably have all three Emblems up. Simply you should definitely have them pop their Expertise as quickly as you’re able to do your assault rotation. The second Emblem triggers on forged, so Oz or Baron Bunny’s delayed assaults received’t give an Emblem. Each expertise have cooldowns longer than the period of the second Emblem.
These quick attackers with average to excessive CRIT Charge take Thundering Pulse to the subsequent stage, utilizing the CRIT DMG bonus from the sub stat to rapidly hit large numbers. Aloy is a standout for this with a four-piece Blizzard Strayer set, with a 20% CRIT Charge enhance in opposition to Cryo affected enemies and 40% in opposition to Frozen ones.
Help characters and builds received’t be capable to use this bow properly, as you sometimes don’t Regular Assault with them. Usually, you simply drop their Expertise or Bursts and swap off. Venti, Diona, the upcoming Kujou Sara and battery builds of Fischl have higher choices that prioritize Power Recharge or Talent Harm.
Ganyu is a singular archer, since her large injury solely comes from her Aimed Shot. Due to the additional cost time wanted to hit her full assault, the tempo to maintain all three Emblems up will be very awkward.

It’s really easy to hit the utmost buff this Bow provides, and with so many good character decisions to provide this to, Thundering Pulse is among the higher Weapon banner exclusives.
