Verina is a 5-Star Spectro Resonator who uses a Rectifier. Once you've pulled her, outfit her with the following gear and team composition:

  • Best weapon: Variation
    • Our top Rectifier pick for Verina is the 4-Star Variation, which restores Concerto Energy whenever Verina uses her Resonance Skill and steadily regenerates her Energy. The Variation also ups a Resonator's Basic Attack stat, which is what Verina's healing is dependent on as well.
  • Best main Echo: Bell-Borne Geochelone
    • The Bell-Borne Geochelone is an excellent main Echo for Verina, since it creates a Bell-Borne Shield that lasts for 15 seconds and offers up a 50% damage reduction and a 10% damage boost for the current team.This nicely complements Verina's already substantial support skills.
  • Best Echo Sonata Effect: Rejuvenating Glow
    • When deciding other Echoes to equip on Verina, you're going to want to use the Rejuvenating Glow Set Sonata Effect, which amps up attack damage for the entire team's Resonators by 15% whenever you use Verina's Outro Skill. Verina's all about supporting her companions, and this only adds to her boost potential.
  • Best teammates: Jiyan, Mortefi (or any other main DPS and sub DPS Resonators)
    • Since Verina's such a potent support character, she works well with almost any team composition, though Jiyan and Mortefi are particularly popular choices to pair her with. Jiyan is one of the best melee DPS Resonators in the game while Mortefi picks up the slack as a ranged sub DPS character. Verina can act as the handy third wheel in this composition, healing both Jiyan and Mortefi in a pinch.

How to use Verina in Wuthering Waves

The key to using Verina well is to make her punctuate the attacks of other Resonators on your team. She's a superb character to swap into combat, pepper the enemies with a few buff-inducing attacks, and then swap out just as quickly as she came. Slam an enemy to the ground with plants via her Intro Skill, then focus on building her Concerto Energy quickly (which should be a snap if you equip the Variation Rectifier we described above) before using her Outro skill Blossom to make a hasty exit and recover health for your next Resonator.

Using Verina also requires management of Photosynthesis Energy, her unique resource. Verina can hold up to four stacks of Photosynthesis Energy, and generates stacks whenever she carries out her Basic Attacks, Botany Experiment, and Verdant Growth. Verina's heavy attack consumes one stack of Photosynthesis Energy to recover Concerto Energy and heal all party members, so swapping Verina into combat to quickly pull off a heavy attack is a perfect way to keep all of your Resonators in tip-top shape.

Verina's Resonance Liberation skill Arboreal Flourish, which damages allies and heals enemies by tagging them with a Photosynthesis mark, should also be a constant companion when utilising this pint-sized healer. Use Verina to tag everyone in the nearby vicinity, then swap her out of danger and focus your next Resonator on attacking the hardiest enemy in front of you. Verina will continue to deal passive damage from the background, which is fantastic, and will heal your current Resonator as she does so. There's a reson why Verina's a must-have addition to every team - this is just too useful!
