4-Piece Bonus

After using an Elemental Burst, this character will gain the Nascent Light effect, increasing their ATK by 8% for 16s. When the character’s HP decreases, their ATK will further increase by 10%. This increase can occur this way maximum of 4 times. This effect can be triggered once every 0.8s.

Nascent Light will be dispelled when the character leaves the field. If an Elemental Burst is used again during the duration of Nascent Light, the original Nascent Light will be dispelled.

Best Genshin Impact Characters to Equip the Vermillion Hereafter Set on

The Vermillion Hereafter set’s 4-Piece bonus leaves it useful to only a select few characters, otherwise you will have to adapt a more aggressive play style by intentionally taking in hits until you max out the Nascent Light stacks. Not to mention that the skill only procs if the character actually takes in damage; it does not proc on shielded damage.

Because of this, the Vermillion Hereafter set is specifically for Xiao’s use thanks to his Elemental Burst in which he continuously loses his HP during the entire burst. Other characters that may make the set work for them are:

  • Hu Tao – Her high HP can help make sure she reaches max stacks safely and she also has her Elemental Skill to pop when she needs to get a stack on her own.
  • Eula – She also has a high HP to act as a buffer in getting the stacks, but she will have to take on an aggressive play style which might get too risky.

Getting the set for Zhongli isn’t recommended despite his high HP due to his shield skill that can interrupt him from getting stacks.

Should I farm for the Vermillion Hereafter Set?

If you don’t have a fully kitted Xiao yet, you can go farm for this set as it is tailor made for him. Otherwise, one main reason why you would still want to get this set to replace your Xiao’s current set (if maxed) is if you want to switch to a more aggressive and burst-y play style to get more rewards out of the risks. The current sets such as Gladiator’s Finale and Viridescent Veneer are somewhat already at par with this new set.
