Genshin Impact: A Thousand Floating Dreams – How to get it, stats, and ascension materials

All about a very potent teapot.

In higher tiers of Genshin Impact, some weapons are more difficult to find than others. For example, it’s pretty hard to come by a good 5-star catalyst, but with the release of Sumeru’s 3.2 update, there is another option for players to chase. Enter A Thousand Floating Dreams, a poetically named catalyst weapon with a nice effect and an amazing 5-star option. In this guide, we will explain everything there is to know about A Thousand Floating Dreams in Genshin Impact, including its stats, ascension, powers, and more.

How to unlock A Thousand Floating Dreams catalyst in Genshin Impact

The primary way to get the A Thousand Floating Dreams catalyst is by getting lucky on Weapon Event Wishes. That means that you’ll need to have luck on your Wish pulls and get a 5-star weapon. The best chance to get it is during Weapon Event Wishes, in which A Thousand Floating Dreams is the promoted weapon. For clarity, let’s look at the two possible scenarios to explain how the guaranteed Weapon Event Wish pull works.

  • To get a guaranteed 5-star weapon drop, you would have to do 80 wishes for the pity pull to kick in, when the pity counter will reset again.
  • To get a promotional 5-star weapon drop, the same pity pull chance is applied, and when you would get a 5-star item, there is a 75% chance for it to be the promotional 5-star weapon.
  • If you pull a 5-star weapon and it is not one of the promotional ones, then the next one you pull is guaranteed to be.

A Thousand Floating Dreams stats

A Thousand Floating Dreams is a 5-star catalyst, which means that it comes with good stats and powers out of the box. The base ATK value is 44 at level 1 and becomes 542 at level 90. Its secondary stat is Elemental Mastery, which increases Reaction DMG based on the character’s element, starting at 58 at level 1 and growing to 265 at level 90.

Along with those base stats, A Thousand Floating Dreams catalyst also has a refinement power with a flashy name: A Thousand Nights’ Dawnsong, which has the following effect:

  • Party members other than the equipping character will provide the equipping character with buffs based on whether their Elemental Type is the same as the latter or not. If their Elemental Types are the same, increase Elemental Mastery by 32. If not, increase the equipping character’s DMG Bonus from their Elemental Type by 10%. Each of the aforementioned effects can have up to 3 stacks. Additionally, all nearby party members other than the equipping character will have their Elemental Mastery increased by 40. Multiple such effects from multiple such weapons can stack.

With every level of refinement, the Elemental Mastery, Elemental DMG Bonus, and party Elemental Mastery grow incrementally:

32 > 40 > 48 > 56 > 64

10% > 14% > 18% > 22% > 26%

40 > 42 > 44 > 46 > 48
