The Redhorn Stonethresher is a five-star claymore that’s a perfect fit for any Defense-scaling DPS unit. It stands out for its Crit Damage substat combined with a passive that becomes stronger the higher the wielder’s Defense.

How to Get

Players can obtain this limited weapon on rate-up through the Epitome Invocation that runs from Dec. 14, 2021, to Jan. 4, 2022. Each pull costs one Intertwined Fate or 160 Primogems. While the weapon isn’t likely to enter the standard banner after its run is over, it’s expected to return in a future limited banner—although with an uncertain rerun date.

If you’re aiming for the Redhorn Stonethresher, it’s important to set it as your Epitomized Path to guarantee this weapon on your third five-star pull on the banner (if the first two fail to give it to you).


  • Base Attack: 44 to 545
  • Substat: Crit Damage (19.2 to 88.2 percent)
  • Passive: Gokadaiou Otogibanashi—Defense is increased by 28/35/42/49/56 percent. Normal and Charged Attack Damage is increased by 40/50/60/70/80 percent of Defense.

Who Can Use Redhorn Stonethresher?

The Redhorn Stonethresher has niche useability, given how there are very few characters that can benefit from its Defense-loving kit. It’s a great choice for the Main or Sub-DPS members of your team, as its passive grants an Attack percentage based on the user’s Defense.

Moreover, with the Redhorn Stonethresher on, you don’t need to worry about stacking Crit Damage Artifacts, as it gives a whopping 88.2 percent at level 90—although with a low base Attack as a trade-off.

With that said, the Redhorn Stonethresher is a wonderful choice for the following characters:

  • Arataki Itto
  • Noelle
  • Xinyan

Out of the above, the weapon is the best-in-slot pick for Aratakio Itto, a five-star Geo character whose skillset leans toward being a Main DPS with plenty of on-field time.
