Who can use the Redhorn Stonethresher?

Keeping these stats in mind, this claymore is perfect for characters that scale of DEF such as Arataki Itto. His elemental burst, Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil!, not only converts his normal, charged and plunging attacks into Geo DMG but it also increases his ATK depending on his DEF. His passive, Bloodline of the Crimson Oni, increases the DMG of Arataki Kesagiri by 35% of his DEF.

If you’re not planning to roll for Itto then another option for this weapon is Noelle. Both her elemental skill and her burst scale on DEF. At C6, her ATK during her elemental burst is increased by 50% of her DEF.

Cons of Redhorn Stonethresher

While the new claymore has a high Crit DMG substat, its secondary effect isn’t something that all characters can make use of.

Till now, there are three claymore users in the game that have high DEF needs – Itto, Noelle and Xinyan. Out of three of these, two are better of with the easily accessible Whiteblind. For this weapon, you don’t have to spend any primogems and it can be easily crafted as long as you have a Claymore prototype.

However, if you are looking to use Noelle or Itto as a DPS, the Redhorn Stonethresher can definitely be a game-changer.
