Who is Lisa?
The Nation of Sumeru recognizes Lisa as their most accomplished graduate in the past 2 centuries with Genshin Impact. She is a highly knowledgeable mage, currently serving the humble position of a librarian in Mondstadt with the Knights of Favonius for unknown reasons.
Lisa is a 4-star Electro Catalyst user who can provide powerful Electro support and sub-DPS capabilities. She is calm, collected, and somewhat lazy, which also shows in her combat style. However, Lisa is also extremely serious about her librarian duties and remains diligent.
While not one of the strongest characters, Lisa has remained a fan favorite since the start of the game due to her personality and design.
How To Unlock Lisa in Genshin Impact
Lisa is one of the first Free-To-Play characters given to most players at the start of the game. To unlock her, you simply have to complete one of the early story quests, Sparks Amongst the Pages, which you unlock when you first visit Mondstadt.
Lisa does not normally appear in the Event Banners, meaning you must wish on the Standard Banner to get her. The Standard Banner is always available, but this can be quite difficult due to the large character pool.
Lisa can also be purchased from the Starglitter Exchange and has been made available in Paimon’s Bargains 5 times till now.
Lisa Main Abilities
Lisa’s Normal attacks have her cast 4 rapid lightning strikes to enemies dealing Electro damage. She can also charge this up for a powerful AoE Electro attack that costs some Stamina. Her plunging attack deals AoE Electro damage to all unfortunate enough to be in her path.
This is Lisa’s Elemental Skill which has 2 types of usages, tap and hold. Tapping the skill unleashes a few lightning orbs that deal AoE Electro damage in a small area. Holding the skill makes Lisa charge up a lightning storm in a circular radius around her and deals significant AoE Electro damage. The skill damage increases with the Conductive stacks from her passive.
Lisa’s Elemental Burst has her summon a lightning lantern that assaults enemies with powerful Electro strikes in a circular radius and also launches them backward for the duration of the skill.

Lisa Genshin Impact: Best Weapons
This 5-star Catalyst is the signature weapon for Yae Miko, but it can also be used on many other characters due to how strong it is. The weapon has a powerful Crit DMG sub-stat, but the Elemental Mastery increase from its Weapon Skill is where it really shines.
The weapon grants 80 Elemental Mastery and gives you a Kagura Dance stack for casting an Elemental Skill, dealing damage with an Elemental Skill, and having under 100% Energy. Kagura Dance stacks will increase your Elemental Skill DMG by 12%/24%/40%, respectively.
The Skyward Atlas is another 5-star option that is excellent for increasing Lisa’s damage output. Not only does it increase her ATK%, but the Weapon Skill increases Elemental DMG by 12% and also triggers highly damaging projectiles every 30 seconds.
The Widsith (Free To Play Choice)
This is one of the best free-to-play options available for Lisa in the game. It has a rare and powerful Crit DMG bonus which can be devastating when paired with the right Crit Rate artifacts.
The Weapon Skill can either increase your ATK by 60%, Elemental DMG by 48%, or increase your Elemental Mastery by 240; all of which are excellent buffs for Lisa.
