These 8 3-Star Weapons In Genshin Impact Are Worth Saving!

Besides Artifacts, weapons are the most important part of good character building in Genshin Impact. Playable characters can fight using Catalyst, Bow, Sword, Polearm, or Claymore, but not all weapons are created equal. Weapon levels range from 1 star to 5 star. The 5 star weapons are the best and of course the rarest.

Getting good 4-star or 5-star weapons in Genshin Impact can be difficult, especially for new players. Luckily, there are plenty of great 3-star weapons available in the meantime.

In this guide, we’ll showcase 8 three-star weapons worth saving for every player. They are extremely useful and have great potential, especially once players upgrade, improve, and refine them.

These 8 3-Star Weapons In Genshin Impact Are Worth Saving!

1. Thrilling Tales Of Dragon Slayers

The first weapon is pretty obvious and most of us know why. It’s Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers.

This weapon is one of the best secondary weapons in the game, providing a massive 48% attack power boost to the next character you switch to. While it does make your spin a little stiff, the huge attack boost is worth it.

In a team with a damage dealer with scalable attacks, 90% of the time this weapon will be the best choice of catalyst support.

You also don’t need to upgrade the weapon unless you need HP sub-stat. Just bring it to R5. I’ve saved 3 R5 copies of this weapon, 2 for each Spiral Abyss team, and one as an extra.

2. Harbinger Of Dawn

If passive uptime is maintained, the next weapon will damage most 4-star weapons and sometimes even 5-star weapon options. It’s Harbinger of Dawn.

It provides a large amount of critical damage and an additional 28% critical chance if your health is above 90%. It does have lower base attack power, but its critical hit stats make up for that. For characters, like Albedo and Alhaitham, low base attack has little impact.

Although the passive may seem difficult to maintain, it’s an amazing weapon choice if you have a Shielder or a character on your team who can dodge enemy attacks.

This is great for low DPS characters since they spend most of their time on the sidelines, giving you 100% uptime on the passive side.

Corrosion and Furina are the weaknesses of this weapon. But you should save at least 1 R5 Harbinger of Dawn. I saved 2 just to be safe.

3. Black Tassel

The next weapon we have is Black Tassel. This Polearm provides the highest HP in the game. The passive is useless, but the raw stats make it a splendid choice of characters like Zhongli, Thoma, who only need HP.

4. White Tassel

Next is Black Tassel’s brother, White Tassel. The critical hit rate of this weapon is astonishing.

Although its base attack power is lower since it is a 3-star weapon, the passive skill provides a 48% increase in basic attack damage at R5. This makes it a brilliant choice for carriers like Cyno who use normal attacks.

It’s even comparable to 5-star Polearms if you use its passive skill. So I recommend you keep at least 1 R5 copy of this weapon.

5. Slingshot

Next we have R5 Slingshot. This weapon provides critical strike chance. It increases basic and charged attack damage by 60% if you’re close to an enemy.

Tighnari is the best candidate for this weapon because he relies on charged attacks, and low base attacks don’t affect him much.

6. Sharpshooter’s Oath

Next we have Sharpshooter’s Oath. This weapon doesn’t have much use so far, as its passive is situational and craftable bow-based. And Prototype Crescent is better suited to enemies like Ganyu, who are weak to ATK% DPS characters.

However, this weapon provides critical damage that the 4-star bow does not. This could make it a superb choice for future character stats. So I suggest you better save 1 copy of this weapon at R5.

7. Recurve Bow

Then we have Recurve Bow, which is the only bow that provides HP%. While the passive is useless, the raw stats may be useful in the future. Even now, if you don’t have Favonius Warbow, this weapon is great for Yelan.

8. Dark Iron Sword

Next we have Dark Iron Sword. Although this weapon doesn’t have much use, it is a very rare sword. It can only be found in 2 places. The first one requires talking to Chen the Sharp, and the next one is in the chest in Wangshan Hall in Chenyu Vale. Even though it’s not that useful now, who knows you might need it in the future.

Other Weapons Worth Saving

Besides these weapons, I recommend you keep a copy of the 3-star weapons. These weapons provide critical hit stats and stats rarely seen in 4-star weapon options like Def%, Hp%, or Elemental Mastery.

For example, Traveler’s Handy Sword provides Def%, while the only sword that provides defense is Cinnabar Spindle, which is an activity-limited weapon. So, being on the safe side, you should keep the sword.

Anyway, I hope this 3 star weapon guide is helpful to you. Be sure to share this guide with your friends so they don’t waste those valuable 3-star weapons.
