Weapons are one of the main aspects of Genshin Impact and a fan is making a spectacular realistic replica of the popular four-star sword.
Genshin Impact has amassed a huge and enthusiastic player base. Players arrive in the popular Mondstadt region when they begin their Genshin Impact adventure, but it’s not long before they venture into the geo-themed region of Liyue as well as the popular Inazuma Islands.
All of these regions also bring their own special characters and items, giving fans more content to work with. Even though it’s free, Genshin Impact became the fastest mobile game to reach $1 billion in sales. With a unique character design, players often tend to replicate game characters and items.
Genshin Impact weapons are central to each character’s build, always having an interesting backstory to where they come from. A recent article on the official Genshin Impact subreddit has revealed an interesting real-life replica of a popular five-star sword – Cinnabar Spindle. Reddit user Vyecos is a known cosplayer, often representing Genshin Impact characters such as Childe, Dainsleif and Diluc. Cinnabar Spindle is a very specific sword as its secondary stats provide defensive power.
Cinnabar Spindle is a very controversial weapon in the Genshin Impact community, and it is considered both the best and the worst weapon. The main reason for this is that the Cinnabar Spindle is only suitable for one Genshin Impact character – the five-star geo alchemist Albedo. Since his release in Update 1.2, Albedo has been one of the most powerful support characters in Genshin Impact. On top of that, his kit is one of the easiest to execute right now, which makes him even more reliable in his role.
The Cinnabar Spindle was released two months ago in Genshin Impact update 2.3 alongside Albedo’s and Eula’s dual banners. This update was the first to include the double banner mechanic which allows players to opt for two limited five-star characters in one banner cycle. Double banners usually include reruns which could be miHoYo’s way of compensating for the absence of a new character in the banner cycle.
Albedo is very underestimated Genshin Impact supporting character since his impact is not as obvious as it is with Zhongli. He is a crucial part of the popular Geo party trend that a lot of gamers are opting for these days. Albedo and Zhongli’s elemental skills have one of the greatest synergies in the game, dealing constant geo damage in a wide area for a long time. Her Burst deals much less damage, but it offers several damage buffs, especially if her Constellations are maxed out.
Genshin Impact is available now on Mobile, PC, PS4 and PS5 with a Switch version in development.
