Itto and Gorou are making their way into Genshin Impact after the end of Albedo and Eula’s rerun banners. Like Kokomi who is considered a super-Barbara, Arataki Itto is called the male-version Noelle. Although he does not have healing abilities or the maid’s knight shields, he does own the same Geo infusion and defense attack buff for his burst.

Itto banner release date

Arataki Itto is released on December 14, 2021, on the Oni's Royale banner. The character will be showcased alongside 4-star Geo bow-wielder Gorou, priestess Kokomi, and little Pyro chef Xiangling.

If you want to know how to get Itto Genshin Impact, this banner is a rare opportunity as it’s unclear if he will have a rerun in the future.

Itto Genshin Impact skills & abilities

The Oni guy has some fabulous skills that make it irresistible not to pull for him. Take a glimpse at his general skill and play style below.

1. Itto Elemental skill

Itto’s elemental skill lets him throw a bull, named Ushi, at enemies and deal Geo damage. Players consider this a Geo construct that will taunt nearby opponents.

2. Itto Normal attack

Itto Genshin build also has the normal attacks where he can perform 4 consecutive strikes at the cap. His normal attack combo will not reset for a short while after an elemental skill is used or he sprinted.

3. Itto Superlative Super Strength stacks

When his second and fourth attacks hit enemies, he will have stacks of Superlative Super Strength. As Itto’s elemental skill strikes at opponents, he gains one stack of superlative super strength.

4. Itto Charged attack

When Superlative Super Strength stacks are unavailable, he will carry out a Saichimonji Slash.

Best Itto Genshin build

In this guild, we will provide the best ways to build Itto as a Geo DPS.

1. Best weapon for Itto

The best weapon for Itto Genshin Impact is the 5-star claymore that is introduced alongside him, Redhorn Stonethresher.

This weapon offers a defense boost by 28%, while normal and charged attack damage is increased by 40%. As Itto’s burst is defense-based, the attack buff from Redhorn Stonethresher will surely help him deal striking damage.

Whiteblind is a good substitute in case you don’t have the Redhorn. The 4-star weapon, which you can forge and refine yourself, also increases defense.

2. Best artifact for Itto

The Husk of Opulent Dreams is one of the two newest artifact sets to be introduced in the game. This one is basically made for Itto.

For a 2-piece set, it can increase defense by 30%. For a 4-piece set, it will introduce a stack called Curiosity. Hitting enemies with Geo attacks will release Curiosity which synergies with Itto’s burst very well. More Geo damage and defense will make Itto even stronger.

3. Best team for Itto

The last factor to have the best Itto Genshin build is to equip the most suitable team for him.

  • Albedo, Ningguang, Noelle, Zhongli: Full and pure Geo team.
  • Fischl, Beidou: Provides a great deal of damage without having to be active.
  • Diona, Zhongli: Create shields and buffs for Itto with their weapons.
