Genshin Impact has emerged as one of the best mobile RPGs, and has made a considerable impact in the market. The reason behind this is the game’s gripping storyline, topped with characters with special abilities. One such character in the game is Razor, who has been written and designed very well.
Getting the character in the game is not a tricky task. Instead, make sure that the character has the most suitable artifacts, units, and weapons so that he can show peak performance in the game.
Here, we will talk about Razor in Genshin Impact, the best weapons, artifacts, teams, ascension, and more. But before that, we will learn more about the character and how you can get him in the game.
Who is Razor in Genshin Impact?
Razor is one of the most powerful fighters in the game and has a will to defend his clan by putting up a good fight. The Electro Claymore Razor is a four-star character who is in love with nature, too.
In any squad, he serves as the main damage dealer and uses the two-handed sword-style attack. Nonetheless, Razor has advantages and disadvantages, like any other character. They are as follows:
- When paired with a Cryo, Razor can trigger Superconduct (a special move that reduces the physical resistance of enemies).
- He can also produce a great deal of energy with Elemental Skill.
- He has the ability to deal with the physical DMG.
- The electro application is super slow, and it can be continuously used for Burgeon.
- The elemental damage is weak.
- The damage ceiling is not that high.
- Razor demands a high investment to sustain in the game.
How to Get Razor in Genshin Impact?
Like most of the characters in Genshin Impact, you can get Razor via Genshin Impact’s loot box gacha system, which is the synonym for random. As for the probability, there is around a 5.1% chance of pulling Razor from a loot box.
However, there are more chances to get a four-star character (increased chances of getting Razor), as Genshin Impact promises to give you a guaranteed four-star character when you use ten gacha pulls consecutively.
There are high chances (but not a guarantee) that you will get Razor in one of those ten boxes. So, there is no other way to get Razor in the game, and yes, spending money is the only thing that will increase your chances of getting the character.
Razor’s Weapons in Genshin Impact
Razor has some of the best in-game weapons that can be used to cause a lot of damage in the game. There are multiple weapons that can be clubbed with Razor for optimum performance.
To make it easy for you, here we have mentioned the best weapons of Razor along with what they can do.
➡️ Snow-Tombed Starsliver
Snow-Tombed Starsilver is a four-star weapon that provides Razor with the ability to cause additional physical damage. The sword is perfect when it comes to triggering Superconduct.
But yeah, this one has its own limitations. The sword is not appropriate for usage in normal gameplay as there are better options.
➡️ Song of Broken Pines
One of the most powerful weapons for Razor in Genshin Impact is the Song of the Broken Pines. The weapons are so exclusive that they can only be used by Razor or Eula in the gameplay.
The sword possesses a high base attack value, and its uptime is significantly better compared to the cooldown time, which is 20 seconds. The weapon is the best fit if you are someone who uses team buffs.
➡️ Wolf’s Gravestone
Wolf’s Gravestone can be dubbed as the best weapon Razor can have. The sword has the second-best base attack coupled with high-level team damage. It has the ability to buff the whole team by a considerable 40%.
Honestly, the design of the sword is eye-catching (personal opinion), and the attack animations are also elegant. One thing that you should know is that this one can only be grabbed from the Gacha pulls in the game.
➡️ The Unforged
This one has an identical base attack and substat scaling to Wolf’s Gravestone. The sword synergizes in the best way with the shield supports as compared to Gravestone. It can be further optimized in the game to cause more damage.
The five stack bonuses with a shield in the game hold the same scale-up as the Gravestone, thus resulting in a longer duration depending on the duration of the shield.
➡️ Skyward Pride
The Skyward Pride has a larger base attack than the Gravestone. On top of that, it also offers a flat damage buff along with AoE damage boosts to DPS as the time Razor is in the Burst mode. The energy recharge substat of the weapon amplifies the energy gain of Razor as well.
Genshin Impact Razor Artifacts
➡️ Pale Flame
This one could be dubbed the best kit for Razor as it provides a bonus to the physical damage and attack power. The best part is that he will be able to maintain the buff constantly, as the artifact has a minimized cooldown. Once the 2 stacks are reached, the 2-set effect of the artifacts is doubled.
➡️ Gilded Dreams
The Gilded Dreams comes with 8s of triggering any elemental reaction. Razor gets the ability to obtain buffs inspired by the Elemental Type of the other members of the group. The ATK is increased by 14% for all the members in a party, along with increasing the EM by 50.
➡️ Martial Artist
The 2-PC artifact increased normal attack damage and charged attack DMG by 15%. On the other hand, in the case of 4-PC, the normal attack and charged attack DMG increase by 25% for 8s by using Elemental Skill.
Genshin Impact Razor’s Best Teams
There are primarily two team combinations where Razor can produce unmatchable in-game performance.
➡️ Razor Hyperbloom + Aggrevate Team
In the Hyperbloom + Aggrevate team, Razor plays the role of Main DPS, Nahida will play the role of Sub-DPS, Xingqiu will play the role of Sub-DPS, and Baizhu dons the Support role.
Based on DPS, we can say that Razor gets the highest value in a Dendro Team as he has the ability to create Elemental Mastery and CRIT Stats to kick start the hyperbloom and Aggravate during his elemental burst.
One thing that you should know is that the physical DMG of Razor will be almost of no use in this team. Instead, the high damage-causing potential of the character compensates for the loss.
➡️ Razor Superconduct Team
In the superconduct team, Razor plays the Main DPS, Fischl and Rosaria are in the roles of Sub-DPS, and Mika plays the support role. The team’s major goal is to deal maximum Physical Damage.
In the team, Mika acts as a support with the healing and attack speed buffs. On the other hand, Rosaria offers CRIT Rate via her Elemental Skill doubled with Cryo resonance. Fischl acts as another Sub-DSP and a battery to recharge Razor’s Elemental Burst.
Genshin Impact Razor Ascension Items
As of now, the only male electro character in the game is Razor, and he uses all the elemental gems used in the game by the electro ladies. There are four different and important elements for Razor when it comes to ascension items.
➡️ Vajrada Amethyst
This is one of the gems that can be found when you defeat the bosses in the game. The list of bosses that you can defeat to get Vajrada Amethyst are Childe, The Shogun, Thunder Manifestation, Electro Hypostasis, Stormterror, Azhdada, Coral Defenders, and Primo Geovishap.
It can also be purchased from the souvenir shops located in Liyue and Mondstadt or can also be earned by getting done with the daily commissions for the Adventurer’s Guild and then having a word with Katheryne.
Wolfhook is an ascension that can only be used by Razor, given his upbringing and other aspects. The ascension is nothing but a sparky purple plant that grows in Wolvendom near trees and bushes.
Apart from that, you can also get it from Chloris in exchange for in-game currency as well. She sells them at a rate of 1000 Mora each.
➡️ Lightning Prisms
Similar to other Electro characters, Razor also uses Lightning Prisms. These not-so-common electrified prisms are dropped from a beaten Electro Hypostasis right after the original cost of the resin is paid.
If you are someone who is looking to get the Lightning Prisms by killing an Electro Hypostasis, then you need to visit the Mondstadt, particularly the Cape Oath in the southeast.
➡️ Hilichurl Masks
Finding a Hilishurl mask in the game is not a big deal. You can get on from the parts of the released nations of Twvyat. However, there are not only Hilichuls in the game.
But with a little effort, you can also get Mitachurls, Samachurls, and even Lawachurls in the game as well. The level of the monsters being attacked is directly proportional to the level of masks you will get:
- Any level: Damaged Mask
- Level 40 or higher: Stained Mask
- Level 60 or higher: Ominous Mask
Genshin Impact Razor Talent Materials
There are primarily two talent materials in the game for Razor that you need to look out for.
➡️ Trounce Materials and Crowns of Insight
There are two trounce domains in Mondstadt, and one of them includes defeating one of the fiercest wolves existing in the Wolvendom. The other way to get the trounce material is by confronting Stormterror.
That being said, Claws of Insight is used by almost every character while taking their talents from level 9 to 10, which is the maximum level.
Speaking in a generic way, they are rare and can be grabbed by taking part in special events. In addition, you can also get them by making offerings to the Frostbearing Tree on Dragonspine or the Sacred Sakura or Narukami Island.
➡️ Talent Books
Multiple characters, including Jean, Diluc, Noelle, Mona, Eula, Razor, and Bennett, can use the Talent Books in the game. The books can be found by clearing the Forsaken Rift domain on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
At the beginner levels, 3x Teachings of Resistance, and ends on the Max 10 level, where you get to see 16x Philosophies of Resistance.
How to Use Razor in Genshin Impact?
You have to focus on a basic fighting style when playing as Razor in the game. First things first, begin your attack with a press version of Claw and Thunder. After successfully landing the hit, you must return to the normal attack combos.
Dash before the final hit and repeat the normal attack combo, as you can cause more damage this way. After two cycles of normal attack, you can use the Claw And Thunder in the game again. The normal attack by Razor (with Steel Fang) is divided into three categories that are mentioned below:
- Normal attack: allows you to perform up to four consecutive skills.
- Charged attack: lets you drain the enemy’s stamina to perform continuous swirling attacks.
- Plunging attack: Attack from mid-air to strike the ground, causing high-voltage damage to the enemies in the path.
So here’s how you can unlock the full potential of Razor in Genshin Impact by using the perfect combination of weapons, ascensions, and talent materials. As for the gameplay, Genshin Impact is something you should definitely try your hands on if you want to dive into the world of fantasy and mythical creatures.
