Iron Sting Stats, Skill, and How to Get: Genshin Impact

Iron Sting is a craftable Sword that can be made using materials found from the overworld as well as weekly boss drops. It has an Elemental Mastery substat and its passive increases all damage done by a set % after dealing elemental damage. This makes it an attractive option for any character, as long as they don’t mind the EM substat.


Each weapon has two forms, one when it is initially summoned and another once it has reached a certain level of ascension. Once this occurs, the weapon will undergo a change in its design. Iron Sting has a thin, almost rapier-like blade and a circular guard that attaches to its grey handle.
