Genshin Impact Thundering Pulse Complete Guide

Thundering Pulse was introduced as a featured weapon in version 2.0 alongside Skyward Blade in the Epitome Invocation banner. With Its sub-stat being the very valuable Crit DMG and its passive boosting ATK by meeting three separate but simple conditions, it is one of the strongest choices for Bow users in the game.

It is an exclusive 5-Star Bow. Learn the Thundering Pulse’s attack power, bonus effects, rarity, stats at level 90, the best characters to use it, and all needed ascension materials in this complete Thundering Pulse guide!

Thundering Pulse

This bow was originally forged by the Raiden Shogun and given as a gift to the Great Tengu Reizenbou. Takamine the Mistsplitter came across the bow’s owner and gambled for its possession in a duel.

Takamine won ownership of the bow despite having to become the Tengu’s servant. He learned the art of Tengu archery using the bow, subsequently teaching Asase Hibiki the archery as well.

He left the bow in her possession, as a promise that he would come back for them both when going to fight in the Cataclysm. Hibiki used it to kill him when he returned as he had been corrupted by the Abyss, therefore its last known owner is Hibiki. It is related to the Mistsplitter Reforged sword, both having been owned by Takamine.
