Free Legendary weapons in the new Genshin Impact event

The event started not so long ago, and a community member has already figured out a method that can lead you to acquiring the legendary Snow-Tombed Star Sliver claymore for free, without crafting. This event is probably one of the best things that could have happened for free-to-play players who cannot afford to pull similar weapons from the Gacha system.

Festering Desire

The first weapon that you are going to get for free is the ‘Festering Desire’ sword given to you by Albedo. You can upgrade this weapon for free during the duration of the event. It provides you with all resources and materials that you would need to upgrade the weapon. This sword is actually Godlike and a must have on sword users like Bennett, and Xingqiu who has an elemental skill that deals damage.

This weapon will allow your character to deal with critical damage that is based on the elemental skill (E). This is the only weapon that can do that, which makes it an absolutely God tier equipment. Upgrade this weapon at all costs, as the event will also give you a sweet XP boost of 1.5 times on leveling this weapon, only during the duration of the event.

Dragonspine Spear

This spear can be collected by completing a simple quest that you can find in the Dragonspine. First up, you will have to collect a dragon tooth and deliver it to the base camp on the entrance to start the quest called as ‘Festering Fang’. On finishing this quest, the NPC will craft the spear for you without charging a single Mora.

Star-Tombed Snow Sliver Claymore

The final legendary weapon that you can gain for free is the Snow-Tombed Star Sliver Claymore. If you are new to the game and looking for a guide to unlock this weapon, then just head over to this link. This guide is only missing out on one peculiar thing, acquiring the weapon without crafting.

This event is quite possibly the best Christmas gift mihoyo can offer to the fans of the game.

You can easily buy out the event shop by merely spending one hour or less grinding out the event currency.
