Skill Priorities

Recommended Light Cones

  1. Night of Fright (5✩)
  2. Time Waits for No One (5✩)
  3. Post-Op Conversation (4✩)
  4. Perfect Timing (4✩)
  5. Warmth Shortens Cold Nights (4✩)
  6. Shared Feeling (4✩)

1) Night of Fright

[Superimpose 1] Effects: Increases the wearer's Energy Regeneration Rate by 12~20%. When any ally uses their Ultimate, the wearer restores HP for the ally currently with the lowest HP percentage by an amount equal to 10~14% of the healed ally's Max HP. When the wearer provides healing for an ally, increases the healed ally's ATK by 2.4~4.0%. This effect can stack up to 5 times and lasts for 2 turn(s).

2) Time Waits for No One

[Superimpose 1] Effects: Increases the wearer's Max HP by 18% and Outgoing Healing by 12%. When the wearer heals allies, record the amount of Outgoing Healing. When any ally launches an attack, a random attacked enemy takes additional DMG equal to 36% of the recorded Outgoing Healing value. This Additional DMG is of the same Type as the wearer's, is not affected by other buffs, and can only occur 1 time per turn.

3) Post-Op Conversation

[Superimpose 1] Effects: Increases the wearer's Energy Regeneration Rate by 8% and increases Outgoing Healing when they use their Ultimate by 12%.
Note: Great LC especially if you're against enemies that often debuff your team. This LC can increase the uptime of Lynx's Ultimate (removes one debuff from all allies) as it increases ERR.

4) Perfect Timing

[Superimpose 1] Effects: Increases the wearer's Effect RES by 16% and increases Outgoing Healing by an amount that is equal to 33% of Effect RES. Outgoing Healing can be increased this way by up to 15%.
Note: The healing effect is hard to achieve with low Effect RES so it's recommended to use Broken Keel Set to help.

5) Warmth Shortens Cold Nights

[Superimpose 1] Effects: Increases the wearer's Max HP by 16%. When using Basic ATK or Skill, restores all allies' HP by an amount equal to 2.0% of their respective Max HP.
Note: Highest base HP along with Post-Op Conversation among 4-star LC.

6) Shared Feeling

[Superimpose 1] Effects: Increases the wearer's Outgoing Healing by 10%. When using Skill, regenerates 2 Energy for all allies.
Note: Helps to generate Energy for the whole team with a small healing effect for Lynx.

Team Recommendations

Follow-Up Team

Because of Lynx's skill that increases the chance of Preservation/Destruction characters being targeted by enemies, follow-up DPS like Blade and Clara are extremely in tune with Lynx. A reminder that Blade is better with Bronya instead of Tingyun like in the image above (but I don't have Bronya to include her in the team above). The best examples would be:
Blade + Bronya + Silver Wolf/Pela + Lynx
Clara + Tingyun + Buffer/Debuffer+ Lynx

Mono-Quantum Team

A bit on the expensive side as 3 of the characters are 5-star characters. Unless the enemies are weak to Quantum, Silver Wolf plays an important role in the team to inflict Quantum Weakness on enemies without the said weakness. You can swap Fu Xuan with a buffer like Bronya or Tingyun if you want.
