How to get Thundering Pulse in Genshin Impact

Thundering Pulse is a limited weapon that can only be obtained whenever it's featured on rate-up in the Epitome Invocation banner, which you can pull on using Primogems and Intertwined Fates. As such, you need to wait for it to rotate and chart an Epitomized Path to guarantee the Thundering Pulse at the third pity.
