While many players are eagerly awaiting Horizon Zero Dawn Aloy’s arrival to Genshin Impact, Raiden Shogun is the other highly anticipated 5-star character coming to the game. Raiden Shogun has Electro abilities and is able to increase the Elemental Burst Damage of all party members. While players can mix and match gear for her as they choose, the best weapon for her is the Engulfing Lightning Polearm coupled with the “Emblem of Severed Fate” Artifact Set. She will become available during the Event Wish “Reign of Serenity,” which will last from September 1-21. Read further to learn how to get Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact 2.1.
How to get Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact
To obtain Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact 2.1, players need to participate in the Event Wish “Reign of Serenity.” It is unlikely that anyone will unlock her on the first few gacha pulls, so players need to have saved a hefty chunk of Primogems in advance or spend their time earning more during the event.
In addition, the Engulfing Lightning Polearm will only be unlockable for the duration that Raiden Shogun is available during the Event Wish. As a result, players may need to work doubly hard to farm Primogems to acquire the 5-star Polearm and Raiden Shogun. Players should focus on grinding challenges, daily quests, and other methods to earn Primogems.
Here is a list of Ascension materials needed to rank up Raiden Shogun.
- Vajrada Amethyst: This resource can be obtained by defeating the Electro Hypostasis in Mondstadt.
- Storm Beads: These beads are dropped from the Electro Oceanid, a new boss coming in 2.1.
- Tenkumo Fruit: This fruit will spawn on Seirai Island, a new island in Genshin Impact‘s 2.1 Update.
- Handguards: These materials are dropped by specific enemies in Inazuma.
It is important to note that Storm Beads and Tenkumo Fruit will only be available after Genshin Impact‘s 2.1 Update releases.
Genshin Impact is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, iOS, and Android.
