For players who don’t know, equipping the Echoes in the first Echo Slot allows the Resonators to use the Echo’s abilities. Every Echo in the above table has the best Echo ability, which greatly enhances the character kit of the recommended characters.

Best Echoes to Equip in Other Slots

While you start with Echo Cost eight in Wuthering Waves, as you upgrade the Cost Limit, it increases to 12. Since the best Echoes have an Echo Cost of four, after you equip the above-recommended Echo, you will still have eight Echo Cost pending to spend in the remaining four Echo Slots.

We recommend using these slots to equip two Elite Class Echoes and two Common Class Echoes with the right Primary Stat and Sub Stats, mostly focusing on Elemental DMG increase, ATK%, ER%, CRIT Rate%, CRIT DMG%, Basic Attack DMG Bonus%, Heavy Attack DMG Bonus%, Resonance Skill DMG Bonus% and Resonance Liberation DMG Bonus.

That concludes our guide on the best Echoes to equip in Wuthering Waves. While you are here, check out WuWa all daily quests and the daily reset time and if you are like me, facing some technical errors, here’s how to fix the fatal error and lag and stuttering.
