The Staff of Homa is a powerful 5-star weapon available as a premium weapon you can pull for. Unfortunately, unlike some other 5-star weapons in the game, the Staff of Homa is only available as a limited weapon banner pull.

In other words, you cannot obtain this weapon from the Standard Banner, which is unfortunate, as it’s challenging to get a weapon you need from the Limited Weapon Banner. It can take up to 240 pulls to guarantee getting the weapon. You should gauge whether or not you need the weapon before pulling for it. As of this writing, the Staff of Homa will be available on November 2 as a limited weapon. After this Limited Weapon Banner ends, it’s unknown when it will return or if it will be added to the Standard Banner.

Is the Staff of Homa any good?

The Staff of Homa is the best polearm option for most polearm characters in the game. It deals the highest damage for Hu Tao and Xiangling and is generally an excellent option for any polearm character in the game.

Due to the weapon’s passive, the Staff of Homa is also an excellent option for the number of HP-scaling polearm users in the game. For example, Zhongli and Thoma will enjoy the Staff of Homa greatly, as it will increase both their damage and support capabilities.

Unfortunately, as a weapon only available on the Limited Weapon Banner, it’s an expensive weapon. It will increase your damage greatly, but gauge whether or not you really need the damage upgrade, as it can take a lot of Primogems to obtain the weapon.
