The next update for Genshin Impact, 2.4, is expected to come out very soon. The biggest addition of the update is probably the new 5 star Cryo Polearm character Shenhe. Similar to most 5 star characters in Genshin, Shenhe arrives with her own weapon banner, containing the new 5 star polearm Calamity Queller. In this article, we are going to reveal everything leaked to date about this new weapon.

1. Calamity Queller stats and appearance

The Calamity Queller has ATK% as its substat. It has one of the highest base attack damage amongst Genshin Impact Polearm, which can reach 741 at level 90.

At Level 1, the Calamity Queller provides 49 ATK and 3.6 ATK%; at Level 90, its stats are 741 ATK and 16.5 ATK%. This substat means that the weapon is geared toward DPS characters.

Keep in mind that these values are from a previous Genshin Impact 2.4 leak, which means miHoYo can change them at any time.

Appearance wise, the Calamity Queller is a blue spear that looks rather tame in comparison with other polearms in Genshin Impact. While all characters can use this spear, it is designed to go with the theme and aesthetics of Shenhe. The level 1 version is deep blue, which turned white after upgrades.

2. Calamity Queller passive skill

Calamity Queller's passive is yet another charge based skill named Extinguishing Precept:

Gain 12% All Elemental DMG Bonus. Obtain Consummation for 20s after using an Elemental Skill, causing ATK to increase by 3.2% per second. This ATK increase has a maximum of 6 stacks. When the character equipped with this weapon is not on the field, Consummation's ATK increase is doubled.

This is a sub-DPS/support passive in general, with the bonus getting doubled when the character using this weapon is not on the field. To get the most from this weapon, players only need to use an elemental skill, wait for the buff to charge up, then switch to another character. The Elemental DMG bonus from this passive, however, is at odds with the weapon's secondary stat of +ATK%.

With higher refinement levels, Calamity Queller gains more Elemental DMG Bonus and ATK% boost. Below are the stats from levels 1 to 5:

  • 12% All Elemental DMG Bonus + an ATK increase of 3.2%
  • 15% All Elemental DMG Bonus + an ATK increase of 4%
  • 18% All Elemental DMG Bonus + an ATK increase of 4.8%
  • 21% All Elemental DMG Bonus + an ATK increase of 5.6%
  • 24% All Elemental DMG Bonus + an ATK increase of 6.4%
