A new weapon banner has finally been released after Itto’s Royal Oni banner just got completed. Together with the reveal of the new character banners, a new weapon banner will be available. Just as always, this new banner will have two limited five-star weapons and five four-star weapons. They are usually related to the characters included in the character banners.


The Event Wish “Epitome Invocation” will offer boosted drop rates for certain weapons, which are the Freedom-Sworn (Sword) and the Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds (Catalyst). The Event Wish duration will start when Version 2.8 update gets released and it will end by August 2, 2022.

  • Freedom-Sworn (five-star sword)
  • Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds (five-star catalyst)
  • The Alley Flash (four-star sword)
  • Favonius Lance (four-star polearm)
  • Rainslasher (four-star claymore)
  • The Widsith (four-star catalyst)
  • Mitternachts Waltz (four-star bow)

Best Weapons to Pull

Many suggest that the Freedom-Sworn sword should be the pulled since it would be perfect for featured character Kaedehara Kazuha. It offers the best Elemental Mastery stats, which is perfect for Anemo characters.

The other weapon is the Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds, a perfect catalyst for DPS catalyst characters like Klee. It has a significant movement speed boost, best for catalyst users since they need to change positions in battles.
