A new 5-star weapon will appear in Genshin Impact version 3.4! The developers have recently released the overview of the said weapon alongside the materials you will need to upgrade it. Examples of the following weapon based on Level 90 and Refinement Rank 1.


The Exquisite Night Chimes: Light of Foliar Incision (Sword)

Light of Foliar Incision is an exclusive 5-star sword, and will only be available in the weapon banner, and will never be featured in the standard wish banner. Here are its stats and passive skill based on level 90 and refinement rank 1:
Base ATK: 542
Secondary Stat (Crit DMG): 88.2%
Passive Skill: Whitemoon Bristle

Crit Rate is increased by 4%. After Normal Attacks deal Elemental DMG, the Foliar Incision effect will be obtained, increasing DMG dealt by Normal Attacks and Elemental Skills by 120% of Elemental Mastery. This effect will disappear after 28 DMG instances or 12 seconds. You can obtain Foliar Incision once every 12 seconds.

Even without reading the passive skill, we know it’s a great weapon based on the massive crit damage bonuses. Almost every sword-user character can take advantage of this weapon as a stat stick. But the passive skill isn’t to be underestimated though. Although little, the weapon can still boost the wielder’s Crit Rate, in addition to increasing their Normal Attack and Elemental Skills’ damage.


Recommended Characters

As of now, I can only say for sure that Alhaitham is the best character to equip Light of Foliar Incision. After all, it is his signature weapon.

Other than Alhaitham, the following characters can also take advantage of the Crit Damage stat from the sword:
1. Keqing
2. Kamisato Ayaka
3. Kamisato Ayato
4. Nilou

Although Ayaka is mentioned there, it is only because of the Crit Damage. The second passive skill of this weapon relies on Elemental Mastery and I doubt there’s anyone who stacks EM on Ayaka.
On the other hand, Keqing, Ayato, and Nilou are great for it because once they’re in Dendro teams, usually Travelers would build them with Elemental Mastery (even if only by a little).

There is a new material called Desiccated Shell that was officially announced by the developer today. However, the continuation of it was not released yet. For example, Faded Red Satin > Trimmed Red Silk > Rich Red Brocade. Since there is no official name yet, I will only put question marks there: Desiccated Shell > ??? > ?????.

One thing is for sure, you can get these materials by defeating new enemies in the Desert of Hadramaveth.
