Here are which characters to use Memory of Dust on in Genshin Impact.

Using the right weapon on a character can make a huge difference in Genshin Impact. Every weapon in the game has it's own unique passive ability and sub-stat, meaning certain weapons work significantly better with certain characters. For example, a character who has their damage scale off HP will do better with a weapon that has an HP sub-stat. Memory of Dust is a 5-Star Catalyst weapon — here's which characters work best with it.

Memory of Dust is a Catalyst that can be obtained through Weapon Event Wishes. The weapon's special ability description states that it "increases Shield Strength by 20%. Scoring hits on opponents increases ATK by 4% for 8s. Max five stacks. Can only occur once every 0.3s. While protected by a shield, this ATK increase effect is increased by 100%." In addition, the weapon has an ATK sub-stat, meaning it's main and sub-stats are both ATK.

Since the weapon increases the strength of shields and boosts attack, it works best for DPS characters. While a character who can make their own shield is ideal, the weapon can also work well if there's another shield maker in the party like Zhongli, Diona, or Noelle.

With the ATK boost, Klee is a great choice as the weapon will give her huge damage boosts. In addition, a DPS Ningguang will also work perfectly with this weapon, especially since Ningguang is often paired with other Geo characters who often produce shields for the party. Finally, Yanfei is able to create shields for herself once she hits C4, making her another great choice if players are using her as a DPS. Most Catalyst users aren't built as DPS', so this weapon may seem like it has niche usage, but the flexibility of it's abilities actually make it great for any Catalyst user who is meant to be the main damage dealer on a team.
