Genshin Impact contains a variety of weapons that players can equip on their characters. Catalysts are one of the game’s five weapon types available, which various characters can be proficient in. The Widsith is one of the best catalysts available in Genshin Impact due to its higher passive and CRIT DMG.

Here’s what players need to know about this 4-star weapon, its stats, ascension materials and how one can acquire the weapon.

Genshin Impact: What is the Widsith?

The Widsith is a 4-star Catalyst weapon, which resembles a notebook containing musical compositions and notes.

It is a solid passive weapon with an equally strong substat due to the weapon's capabilities. The Widsith is easily a great option for Catalyst-wielding characters like Yanfei, Mona, Klee and Sucrose as it offers a considerable damage output.

Genshin Impact The Widsith stats & ability

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • ATK: 42-510
  • Secondary Stat: 12% – 55.1% Crit DMG

The weapon's passive (Special Ability), Debut, grants the character a random song for 10 seconds. This occurs once every 30 seconds when a character is on the field.

When equipped, the passive's effects are exclusively available to the character that has the Widsith equipped. If the character gets swopped out, the weapon's abilities become unavailable to use on other characters.
