Genshin Impact 2.7 is going to enter phase 2 soon. Unlike the first phase, the second phase is going to be a solo rerun of Itto, alongside a weapon banner containing Redhorn Stonethresher and Memory of Dust. While the former is a highly useful claymore with 88.2% Crit DMG sub stat, the latter is a rather hard-to-use catalyst.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase a complete guide for the Genshin Impact Memory of Dust Catalyst to see which character is suitable for it.

Memory of Dust weapon review

Memory of Dust Stats and Passive

A stone dumbbell containing distant memories. Its endless transformations reveal the power within.

  • Base ATK (Lv. 1 - 90): 46 - 608
  • 2nd Stat (Lv. 1 - 90): +10.8% - 49.6% ATK

Increases Shield Strength by 20/25/30/35/40%. Scoring hits on opponents increases ATK by 4/5/6/7/8% for 8s. Max 5 stacks. Can only occur once every 0.3s. While protected by a shield, this ATK increase effect is increased by 100%.

Overall, Memory of Dust is considered a niche weapon, as there's hardly any catalyst user with the ability to create shields. Furthermore, its stat and passive increase shield strength and ATK, which are not that useful to catalyst users, who need a mix of all types of stats.

However, the weapon is not that useless, as Memory of Dust is still a good stat stick with a high base ATK and ATK bonus. Players can use it and focus on crit and elemental damage for their artifacts

Best characters for Memory of Dust in Genshin Impact


Currently, only Ningguang can use Memory of Dust without help from other characters. Being a Geo character, she can easily create her own shield with Crystallize reactions. While unreliable, it is still better than nothing - players would be able to get the full benefit of the passive without any shielder in the team. Overall, she is a powerful support/DPS character with the capability to deal damage with both normal attacks and abilities.

This weapon's skill and theme fit Ningguang 100%..


Klee's first ascension talent, Pounding Surprise, gives Klee a 50% chance to gain an Explosive Spark buff from normal attacks and skills. This buff empowers her next Charged Attack, increases its damage and removes the stamina cost. As Klee mainly attack with her Charged Attack, the Memory of Dust is somewhat useful to her. However, players need to run a shield character for the maximum boost.


Similar to Klee, Yanfei is also a Pyro catalyst DPS who deals damage with normal and charged attacks. The Memory of Dust is therefore useful to her, as long as there is a teammate to shield her up.

The Memory of Dust catalyst is getting a rerun on June 21. Players have a chance to get this if they fail in pulling for the Redhorn Claymore.
