The official Genshin Impact Twitter account has finally revealed the five-star item players will be able to pull for in the upcoming second cycle of update 2.3.

The release of a new Genshin Impact character is probably one of the most exciting events in the game for the majority of the community. Recent leaks have revealed pretty much all of the content that we are going to see in the upcoming 2.3 update. 

The official Genshin Impact Twitter account has finally revealed the brand new claymore weapon that will arrive in the second banenr cycle of update 2.3. The weapon's name is Redhorn Stonethresher and it is designed for the upcoming Arataki itto. The claymore has the following stats:

  • Weapon Type: Claymore
  • Rarity: FIve-star weapon
  • Base Attack 542
  • Secondary stat: Critical Damage
  • Secondary stat value: 88.2 per cent
  • Passive: DEF is increased by 28 per cent. Normal and Charged Attack damage is increased by 40 per cent

Previously a credible Genshin Impact leak has revealed the best weapon choice for Arataki Itto. The choice was always between two weapons, Serpent Spine and Redhorn Stonethresher considering those are the only Claymores that do not provide an Attack bonus in any shape or form. Itto's damage scales with Defence which means that building Attack will have no effect on his DPS.

The leak compares Serpent's Refinement 5 level with an R1 Redhorn because it's much easier to gather a four-star weapon, especially Serpent Spine. The Redhorn Stonethresher's R1 damage is roughly 4 per cent stronger than the Serpent Spine.
