If you’d like to return the favour, you’re in the right place – this Genshin Razor build goes over all of his skills and the best gear to kit him out with so you can become his real Lupical.

Genshin Impact Razor

What’s the best Genshin Razor build?

Razor is a unique little wolf cub who wields a hefty claymore capable of dishing out some substantial damage. Like Genshin Impact’s Cyno, he’s not very flexible in his role, and is a bit of a ‘selfish’ main DPS who requires well-invested, off-field supports and needs plenty of field time due to his long lasting ult.

His kit may appear simple at first, but has plenty of little nuances that you need to familiarise yourself with in order to understand the best rotation for your team comp.

However, with his unique combination of heavy-hitting physical damage and electro application, he’s capable of becoming a real powerhouse damage dealer that’s very hard to counter, especially with a well-built support to take care of him.

What are the best Genshin Razor weapons?

Wolf’s Gravestone is hands down the best claymore for Razor, with high base attack, an attack% boost, and a handy passive.

Serpent Spine is the best four-star option for Razor, with high crit rate and a substantial damage bonus offered through its skill. However, if you’re F2P, Prototype Archaic offers solid base and burst damage and is craftable at the blacksmith.

Weapon Effect
Wolf’s Gravestone Base stat: attack
Skill: increases attack by 20%. Attacks against enemies with less than 30% HP increase all party members’ attack by 40% for 12 seconds. This can only occur once every 30 seconds
Serpent Spine Base effect: crit rate
Skill: every four seconds the wielder is on field, they deal 6% more damage and 3% more damage. This effect has a maximum of five stacks and does not reset if the character leaves the field, thou you lose one stack when the wielder takes damage
Prototype Archaic Base stat: attack
Skill: normal and charged attacks have a 50% chance to deal an additional 480% attack damage to nearby enemies. This effect can only occur once every 15 seconds

What are the best Genshin artifacts?

Though it may sound strange, Pale Flame is Razor’s current best in slot set, dramatically overtaking Gladiator’s Finale and thunder-based options.

Pale Flame grants a hefty boost to his physical damage, and also applies to his other physical damage attacks such as his wolvenstrike plunges. However, it does restrict how you use his skill, relying on you only tapping it and saving the charged skill dor directly before or near the end of his burst rotation to ensure the longest uptime on its skill.

Of course, if you’re struggling to farm a full set of Pale Flame with decent stats, four pieces of Gladiator’s Finale is still a strong choice, and remains Razor’s most popular set due to its unconditional basic attack bonus and its skill’s ability to boost the physical damage of your normal attacks.

Artifact set Effect
Pale Flame Two equipped: physical damage +25%
Four equipped: when an elemental skill hits an opponent, attack increases by 9% for seven seconds. This effect stacks up to two times, and can trigger once every 0.3 seconds. Once you reach two stacks, the two-set effect increases by 100%
Gladiator’s Finale Two equipped: Increases attack by 18%
Four equipped: If the wielder of this set uses a sword, claymore, or polearm, their normal attack damage is increased by 35%

What are Genshin Razor’s skills?

Active skills:

Skill Effect
Steel Fang Perform four slashes
Steel Fang (charged) Consumes stamina to deal AoE damage numerous times, ends with a powerful slash
Steel Fang (plunging) Plunges from mid-air to deal AoE damage on impact
Claw and Thunder (press) Deals AoE electro damage and gains an Electro Sigil, increasing his energy recharge rate. Up to three Electro Sigils can be active at one time
Claw and Thunder (hold) Deals AoE electro damage and clears all Electro Sigils, recharging his energy
Lightning Fang Summons the Wolf Within which deals AoE electro damage. This clears all Electro Sigils and converts them into elemental energy. The Wolf Within fights with Razor and deals electro damage alongside his normal attacks, raises his attack speed and electro resistance, makes him immune to electro-charged status damage, and disables his charged attacks. The Wolf Within effects end when Razor leaves the battlefield.

Passive skills:

Skill Effect
Awakening (unlocked at ascension one) Claw and Thunder recharges 18% faster, and recharges instantly when using Lightning Fang
Hunger (unlocked at ascension four) Razor’s energy recharges 30% faster when his energy is below 50%
Wolvensprint (unlocked automatically) Decreases party members’ stamina consumption when sprinting by 20%

What are Genshin Razor’s constellations?

Constellations can be tedious to level up, but it’s definitely worth it for the bonuses Razor receives. Here’s every perk you can expect.

Suppression Critical rate is increased by 10% against enemies with less than 30% HP

Bite When Claw and Thunder (press) is used, enemies hit will have their defence decreased by 15% for seven seconds
Sharpened Claws Increases the level of Claw and Thunder by three
Lupus Fulguris Every ten seconds, Razor’s sword charges up, causing his next normal attack to release lightning that deals 100% of Razor’s attack as electro damage. When Lightning Fang is not active, a lightning strike on an enemy will grant Razor an Electro Sigil
