The Rainslasher is an attractive 4-star Claymore designed for a certain niche of users. It’s a unique weapon that increases Elemental Mastery and the damage of Hydro and Electro users, giving it a niche within Claymore users. In fact, too much of a niche, as many Claymore characters cannot even take advantage of this weapon suitably.

As a 4-star weapon, Rainslasher is obtainable from the Standard Banner, the Featured Banner, and the Weapon Banner. You can get this weapon at any time from all three banners, making this an attractive option for free-to-play or low-spending players. Occasionally, this weapon will have a rate-up on the weapons banner, so keep your eyes peeled if you need this weapon.

Is the Rainslasher any good?

At the time of this writing, the Rainslasher is an incredibly niche weapon that only feasibly works on a couple of Claymore characters. The simple issue is that there are not many Electro Claymore users that are fit to take advantage of this weapon.

Beidou does not want this weapon, as the Elemental Mastery stat is not helpful for her. Additionally, Razor’s niche is his high physical damage. And there aren’t any Hydro characters in the game who uses a Claymore, to begin with.

Currently, the only character who might want to use this weapon is Sayu. Sayu has some builds that work off Elemental Mastery, so this weapon can make a suitable stat stick for her. Otherwise, we’ll have to wait for a Hydro character that utilizes reactions well for this weapon to have any use.
