Vortex Vanquisher – How to get, Ascension, stats, and who can use it in Genshin Impact

It's not the best, but it can still be really useful when paired with the right characters.

Vortex Vanquisher is a Genshin Impact five-star polearm that increases Shield Strength and offers an Attack increase based on the number of hits a wielder makes, making it a highly niche weapon beneficial to a select few. I generally don't recommend pulling for the Vortex Vanquisher because there are a ton of more universal polearm options in the game. But if you pulled this weapon by accident, it can still be useful. Here's everything you need to know about it.

How to get Vortex Vanquisher in Genshin Impact

Vortex Vanquisher 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 Vortex Vanquisher at the third pity.

Who can use Vortex Vanquisher in Genshin Impact?

Vortex Vanquisher has a niche use case because its Attack boost is based on the number of hits the wielder makes. Each character has different attack patterns, and this particular weapon benefits those who can score hits every 0.3 seconds. In addition, Vortex Vanquisher offers a higher Attack boost when the wielder is shielded. Characters who can use this polearm include:

Vortex Vanquisher is technically Zhongli's signature weapon, but I don't recommend giving it to him, as he pairs better with the Staff of Homa.
