Team Recommendations

2DoT Kafka Team

Kafka is the core character and has a fixed team composition. The best support here is Asta but you can replace her with Silver Wolf to add a Weakness or Tingyun to buff Kafka's ATK.
Guinaifen: DoT 1
Kafka: DoT 2 + DPS
Asta / Silver Wolf: Buffer/Debuffer
Luocha / Fu Xuan / Bailu: Healer/Shielder

3DoT Kafka Team

As the team name mentioned, you will have 3 DoT characters in the team. You can switch Sampo to Luka depending on the enemies' weaknesses.
Guinaifen: DoT 1
Kafka: DoT 2
Sampo / Luka: DoT 3
Luocha / Fu Xuan / Bailu: Healer/Shielder

Pure Fire Team

If you face a boss or mob that has Fire as a weakness, you can try the pure Fire team with Himeko or Hook. Guinaiden provides stable Burns on enemies, and Asta can provide SPD and increased damage.

Himeko / Hook: Fire DPS
Asta: Buffer
Luocha / Fu Xuan / Bailu: Healer/Shielder
