Genshin Impact declares the seven weapons available on the first weapon banner in the upcoming version 3.4 update.
Genshin Impact has announced the weapons that will be featured in the first part of the 3.4 update’s weapon banner through its official social media channels. Each update is split into two banner cycles, each featuring a unique set of limited weapons and characters. The developer, HoYoverse, has previously confirmed that the banner will include the little five-star characters Alhaitham and Xiao. In addition, another four-star character named Yaoyao will also be making an appearance, giving players a chance to obtain both new Dendro users by spending their Primogems on one banner.
The upcoming weapon banner in Genshin Impact’s 3.4 updates will feature two five-star and five four-star weapons. The five-star items will typically act as signature weapons for the featured characters, which are Xiao and Alhaitham. Therefore, the only new thing on the banner is the sword Light of Foliar Incision, the signature weapon for the new Dendro DPS character, Alhaitham. According to the game’s official Twitter account, the first phase of update 3.4 will include the following weapons:
Light of Foliar Incision, a five-star sword; Primordial Jade Winged-Spear, a five-star polearm; Lithic Spear, a four-star polearm; The Flute, a four-star sword; Rainslasher, a four-star claymore; The Widsith, a four-star catalyst; and Sacrificial Bow, a four-star bow.
Although the new sword is designed for Alhaitham, it can also be used by almost every sword user in the game due to its high base stats. Its passive effect, White moon Bristle, provides a significant Crit Rate buff and increases Elemental Skill and Normal Attack damage after dealing elemental damage with a Normal Attack.
The second five-star weapon, the Primordial Jade Winged-Spear, is considered one of the best polearms in the game, and it arrived alongside the Anemo user, Xiao. The polearm provides a lot of ATK to the weapon holder, so it should be used with a character whose kit scales with this stat.
While the two five-star weapons are considered S-tier items, the four-star lineup has received mixed reactions from players. The Widsith catalyst is regarded as the most valuable four-star item in the list; certain DPS characters can utilize it.
Genshin Impact is available on Mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5, and a Switch version is in development.
