UPDATE: We've updated this page with a little more information on team compositions, weapons, and Echo stats to help with your Mortefi build.

Wuthering Waves has more than a few different Resonators to try and build a team with, all of which wield different weapons. Ranged, pistol-toting characters are a minority in WuWa, which is a little annoying considering some challenges and puzzles require their guns, but fortunately, Mortefi is one that is highly capable in battle and flexible between compositions.

There’s also Aalto and Chixia to choose from if you need a pistol in your party, but Mortefi stands out from the crowd amongst these three Resonators. To show you just how useful Mortefi can be to any team, here’s our Wuthering Waves Mortefi build.

Wuthering Waves Mortefi Build

Best Mortefi Team Composition in Wuthering Waves

Mortefi plays the role of a sub-DPS in most Wuthering Waves Team compositions as he’s capable of dishing out ranged damage while also being capable of buffing the Heavy Attacks of incoming teammates with his Outro Skill. As such, Mortefi is best paired with a strong DPS character such as Havoc Rover, Jiyan or Calcharo, as well as a support character.

For supporting characters, I’ll always recommend Verina for the fact that she only needs to spend a small amount of time out on the field to be incredibly useful, but you could always opt for Baizhi if you don’t yet have Verina unlocked.

Best Mortefi Weapons in Wuthering Waves

Mortefi is one of a few pistol-wielding characters in the game, meaning he’s effective at range and easy enough to keep safe during a tough fight, while also being able to pack a punch even as a sub-DPS. That said, you ideally don’t want to rely on him too much, and ensure you’re using a combination of his attacks to buff and rotate between other Team members, ideally those that prioritise Heavy Attacks, which he buffs.

At S6, Mortefi is much more powerful, and I've personally found him much more useful on the field. He can really hold his own while I wait on Calcharo to heal and so forth, and he's come in clutch for the tough overworld boss fights you can find.

Anyways, there are a few weapons Mortefi can be equipped with, and ultimately, we’re looking for ones that boost his Attack and Energy Regeneration, as Mortefi can have lengthy cooldowns on his skills.

  • Static Mist (5 star): The best weapon that you can kit Mortefi out with, the Static Mist pistol increases Mortefi’s Energy Regeneration (which he needs!). That’s not all, either, as having this weapon equipped boosts the following teammates' Attack damage after Mortefi uses his Outro Skill, lasting 14 seconds after switching.
  • Undying Flame (4 star): Undying Flame is one of many options you could acquire as a pre-registration reward from WuWa. The pistol increases the damage of Mortefi’s Resonance Skill by 20% for 15 seconds after his Intro Skill is used.
  • Novaburst (4 star): When dashing or dodging, Attack is increased by 4%. This stacks up to three times and lasts 8 seconds.
  • Pistol of Night (3 star): Pistol of Night boosts Attack by 16% for 10s once Mortefi's Intro Skill is used.

Best Mortefi Sonata Effect in Wuthering Waves

The best Sonata Effect to employ when it comes to choosing Echoes for Mortefi is Moonlit Clouds. The Moonlit Clouds Sonata Effects are as follows:

  • 2pcs Set: Energy regeneration is buffed by +10%.
  • 5pcs Set: Attack of the next Resonator is buffed by +22.5% for 15 seconds, after using the Outro skill.

If you don’t have five Moonlit Clouds Echoes to equip Mortefi with, you can always opt to have two Molten Rift Echoes temporarily in their place. The effect that this provides, with two pieces equipped, is a 10% buff to Fusion Damage.

Best Mortefi Echoes

Provided that you’re equipping Mortefi with Moonlit Clouds Echoes, the best one that you can have is the Impermanence Heron. You’ll find this elite boss towards the north of the map, near Camp Overwatch.

Upon use, Mortefi will turn into the Impermanence Heron and deal Havoc Damage, which - if it successfully hits a target - will restore Mortefi’s Resonance Energy and increase the damage dealt by the following character.

Best Mortefi Echo Stats in Wuthering Waves

A lot of Mortefi’s kit relies on using his Resonance Liberation (Ultimate) and then Outro Skill immediately to buff the stronger DPS character on his team. With this in mind, you’ll want your Echo stats to focus on Energy Regeneration for the most part to help speed things up, but as is usually the case with most WuWa Resonators, your top Echo should focus on Mortefi’s Critical Rate/Damage.

Your Echoes should be arranged as follows, but of course, there’s room for different stats if you don’t have all the Echoes you need right now.

  • 4: Impermanence Heron - Critical Rate/Damage
  • 3: Energy Regen / Fusion Damage
  • 3: Energy Regen / Fusion Damage
  • 1: Attack %
  • 1: Attack %

When it comes to tuning Echoes and eyeing up those substats, you really want as much Energy Regeneration as possible. After that, look to boost your Crit. Rate and Damage where needed, and look out for more Attack %.
