The next weapon banner includes a drop rate boost for 5 star Sword Skyward Blade. Moreover, the banner also includes two event-exclusive 4-star weapons: The Alley Flash (Sword) and Wine and Song (Catalyst). Lastly, three already existing weapons will also receive a boost on the banner: Favonius Greatsword (Claymore), Favonius Warbow (Bow), and Dragon’s Bane (Polearm).

There are several weapons being added with Ver 1.4 Invitation of Windblume. We have guides for them:

Seeing Alley Hunter is not included in this weapon banner. it’s likely to be included in the second weapon banner of Ver 1.4, starting right after this one ends.

Personally speaking, I’ve said it once, and I’ll keep saying it, I wouldn’t recommend anyone pulling on weapon banners. This is the kind of content geared for whales, those willing to spend a lot of money on the Genshin gacha. Long story short, you’ll be better off optimizing your artifacts. Many four star weapons are perfectly viable to clear the current endgame content. Moreover, unlike character banners, weapon banners have no guarantee to give you the 5 star weapon you want when hitting 90 pulls. You might aim for Elegy of the End only to end with Skyward Blade every time.

Genshin Impact is available on PC, PS4, PS5, an Mobile. The game was also announced on Switch but has no release date there yet. Ver 1.4 will launch on March 16 ET, here’s how to pre download it.
