How to get Snow-Tombed Starsilver claymore in Genshin Impact

The Snow-Tombed Starsilver claymore is hidden behind a locked door in Dragonspine, which requires a bit of puzzle-solving to open. There are eight stones with mystic symbols on them scattered around Dragonspine, all with unlit torches nearby. We have marked the location of all of them on the map below.

To get the Snow-Tombed Starsilver, do the following steps:

  1. Light the torches near the carved stones with Pyro. You can light them in any order.
  2. After every torch has been lit, go to the cave where the Cryo Hypostasis is located. You can try to get by it or defeat it for easier access.
  3. Inside the chamber is an arcane contraption near a big locked door.
  4. Light the four torches in the room with Pyro to open the door.
  5. Enter the room and after a brief cutscene, you will be able to get the Snow-Tombed Starsilver claymore.

Crafting the Snow-Tombed Starsilver claymore

After you have obtained the Snow-Tombed Starsilver claymore by solving the Stone Tablet puzzle, you can also find the crafting recipe for it in the same room. Look for a chest at the far end of the room, that’s where the recipe is located.

To craft more Snow-Tombed Starsilver claymores, you will need the following materials:

  • 1 Northlander Claymore Billet
  • 50 Crystal Chunk
  • 50 Starsilver
  • 500 Mora

Snow-Tombed Starsilver stats

Snow-Tombed Starsilver is a 4-star claymore, meaning that it will have some pretty good stats and help your party’s power level. Its base ATK value is 44 at level 1 which becomes 565 at level 90. Its secondary stat is Physical DMG Bonus, which enhances the character’s Physical DMG on a percentage basis, and starts at 7.5% at level 1 and grows to 34.5% at level 90.

Furthermore, the Snow-Tombed Starsilver claymore also has a refinement power called Frost Burial, with the following effect:

  • Hitting an opponent with Normal and Charged Attacks has a 60% chance of forming and dropping an Everfrost Icicle above them, dealing AoE DMG equal to 80% of ATK. Opponents affected by Cryo are instead dealt DMG equal to 200% of ATK. Can only occur once every 10s.

Despite how it may seem, the AoE DMG of this extra attack is Physical. With each progressive refinement level, Frost Burial becomes stronger. The chance for the effect to happen increases at the rate of 60% > 70% > 80% > 90% > 100%. The AoE DMG percentage rate is 80% > 95% > 110% > 125% > 140%, which grows to 200% > 240% > 280% > 320% > 360% for those affected by Cryo.
