To get the most from your party composition you’ll need to fine-tune which weapons and gear each character is using. For those leaning into elemental damage, there’s one weapon you’ll want to consider in particular. Here’s how to get the Solar Pearl in Genshin Impact and what it does.
How to Get Solar Pearl in Genshin Impact
If you’ve been playing Genshin Impact for any length of time then you’ll be well aware of its gacha mechanic. Well, unlike most other weapons in the game, that’s not actually how you get Solar Peal. Instead, you’ll have to sign up for Genshin Impact’s battle pass since this is the only way it’s obtained. It costs $9.99 for a season, but you can skip tiers for more money if you want to quickly obtain rewards.
There are 50 tiers to the battle pass, but after unlocking Gnostic Hymn and reaching BP Level 30, you will then can select a weapon of your choice from the BP Bounty — one of which is the Solar Pearl.
What the Solar Peal Is Used For
“A dull, golden pearl made of an unknown substance that harbors the light of the sun and the moon, and pulses with a warm strength.”
The Solar pearl is a catalyst weapon that increases the Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst damage of characters by 20% for six seconds when striking with normal attacks. Elemental burst hits landed will also increase Normal Attack damage by 20% for six seconds.
So, it’s only effective for certain characters that can actually make use of those buffs. We recommend Ningguang, since those two buffs combine to really improve her ultimate damage substantially. Also, Klee is another character who really benefits from Solar Pearl given that it will increase her Elemental Damage.
