Best Light Cones for Robin

While there are a fair amount of Harmony Light Cones for Robin to choose from, Cones that have ATK% boosting or energy regeneration effects are highly recommended. These effects are highly sought after since Robin’s Ultimate effect—which increases all allies’ ATK—scales directly with her own ATK stat. Energy regen is also important, as this will affect how quickly she’s able to refill her Ultimate once it’s used.

Best Relics for Robin

General Stats

Since Robin’s Ultimate scales with her own ATK stat, prioritizing relics with ATK% stats is going to be essential. However, for her own survivability, be sure to also have a few HP% and DEF% stats on a few of her pieces as well. Unlike most characters, SPD isn’t necessary for Robin since the state she enters during her Ultimate fixes her SPD at 90, and she can’t take any turns.

The following are the main stats you should get on specific relic pieces:

  • Body: ATK%
  • Feet: ATK%
  • Planar Sphere: ATK%
  • Link Rope: Energy Regeneration Rate

Relic Sets

Relic SetEffect
2-Piece Musketeer of Wild Wheat + 2-Piece Prisoner in Deep ConfinementMusketeer Set increases ATK by 12%. Prisoner Set increases ATK by 12%.
4-Piece Champion of Streetwise BoxingIncreases Physical DMG by 10%. After the wearer attacks or is hit, their ATK increases by 5% for the rest of the battle. This effect can stack up to 5 time(s)

Planar Sets

Planar SetEffect
Fleet of the Ageless Increases the wearer’s Max HP by 12%. When the wearer’s SPD reaches 120 or higher, all allies’ ATK increases by 8%.
Space Sealing StationIncreases the wearer’s ATK by 12%. When the wearer’s SPD reaches 120 or higher, the wearer’s ATK increases by an extra 12%.

Robin Trace Priorities

When leveling up Robin’s Traces, prioritize maxing out her Ultimate, Skill, and Talent. These are the most useful components of her kit that will enhance your teammates’ overall damage output. Moreover, be sure to unlock her bonus Traces to also enhance follow-up attacks, increase her energy regeneration, and help her take her turns more quickly.

Best Robin Team Comps

Team #1: Robin, Topaz, Dr. Ratio, and Aventurine

This team is one of the best follow-up attack teams in the game, and the inclusion of Robin makes it even better. When Topaz, Dr. Ratio, and Aventurine are all together, they can unleash serious damage by triggering each other’s follow-up attacks. In this team, Robin’s ATK and CRIT DMG buffs help the trio deal even more damage, devastating most single-target enemies. However, Robin’s bonus Trace that enhances follow-up attacks also adds another layer of devastation.

If you lack some of these premium characters, you can swap Aventurine out for another sustain character, or you can swap Topaz or Dr. Ratio out for another DPS unit. Just note, though, that since this team is follow-up attack-focused, swapping other members out may throw off the synergy a bit, especially since Robin’s bonus Trace boosts follow-up attacks.

Team #2: Robin, Kafka, Black Swan, and Lynx

This DoT (damage over time) team works really well with a lot of different parts of Robin’s kit. Both Kafka and Black Swan’s skill and Ultimate damage scale off of their ATK, which means they’ll dish out a ton of damage when Robin uses her Ultimate. Moreover, Kafka also has her own follow-up attack, which allows her to take advantage of Robin’s follow-up attack buff.  

If you don’t have Kafka or Black Swan, you can swap them out for other DoT units like Sampo or Luka since their skills/Ultimates also scale off their ATK stat. If you opt for Luka, bear in mind that his single-target attacks may be difficult to work with when dealing with multiple mobs. You can also swap Lynx out for another sustain character to add some survivability to your team.

We hope that this Robin build will help give your team a powerful damage boost. For more tips on character builds, team comps, and more, be sure to check out our HSR guides, such as Best Blade Build.
