Raiden works well as a DPS battery and will spend a lot of time in active combat.
Not only does it deal great damage, but it also spawns tons of elemental particles that charge your team’s ultimate abilities.
Here are some recommendations for their teams:
Raiden Shogun (Main DPS), Xiangling (Sub DPS), bennett (Support), and Xingqiu (Support)
Comprised of characters from four regions of Teyvat, this team is a very friendly free-to-play team.
Keep Raiden on the field for as long as possible, and Bennett and Xingqiu will help her stay healthy.
This team will also constantly trigger elemental reactions and quickly charge ultimates.

While getting all four of these characters can be difficult, the investment is far more free to play.
