Should you choose Hunter’s Path or Vortex Vanquisher in Genshin Impact?
Is Hunter’s Path or Vortex Vanquisher better?
This Weapon Banner features both a five-star bow and a five-star polearm, which have been optimized for specific five-star characters. Hunter’s Path was created to synergize with Tighnari, due to its Elemental DMG bonus and the fact that it scales off of Elemental Mastery. Tighnari thrives on Elemental Reactions, and Hunter’s Path complements that playstyle.
Vortex Vanquisher was created with Zhongli in mind, due to its shield buffs. Although this is Zhongli’s signature weapon, it actually isn’t the most effective weapon he can wield. Staff of Homa and Primordial Jade Winged-Spear are better options for Zhongli, bringing him to his highest damage potential.
With these synergies in mind, Hunter’s Path is the better option, especially if you plan on building Tighnari. This bow plays to his strengths, increasing his Charged Attack DMG by 160% of his Elemental Mastery. It also greatly increases his CRIT Rate, allowing for some extra damage on top of the 12% Elemental Damage bonus.
