III. Snow-Tombed Starsilver Best Character

After getting Snowtombed Starsilver from forging or chest, you can equip it for any Claymore users in Genshin Impact. But this 4-star claymore will be more powerful and effective when it's in the hand of the best characters. You should equip this claymore for Razor, Chongyun, and Xinyan.

  • Razor

Is Snow-Tombed Starsilver good for Razor? The answer is Yes. This claymore makes enemies affected by Cryo get 200% ATK DMG.

When Razor uses his elemental attacks to apply Electro DMG to these enemies, it can deal huge damage to them with both the DMG bonus of Snowtombed Starsilver and the Superconduct elemental reaction. You should use the Bloodstained Chivalry and Pale Flame artifact sets to build Razor's main DPS role with this claymore.

  • Chongyun

Chongyun is a powerful 4-star Cryo character who can play both DPS and Sub-DPS roles in your team. Snowtombed Starsilver is one of the best weapons for him because this claymore deals 200% ATK DMG to enemies affected by Cryo. Therefore, Chongyun's normal and charged attacks will cause higher DMG to opponents after he applies the Cyro element on them by his elemental skill and burst.

Snowtombed Starsilver is one of the best weapons for a powerful 4-star Cryo character like Chongyun.
  • Xinyan

You can also equip this claymore for Xinyan - a Pyro character. Her Elemental skill and burst can cause the Melt reaction on enemies affected by the Cryo element to increase the DMG bonus. This claymore is one of the best weapons for her DPS build.

One of the best claymores for Xinyan is Snowtombed Starsilver.

IV. Snow-Tombed Starsilver Vs Prototype Archaic

Prototype Archaic is also a 4-star claymore with the same base damage as that of Snowtombed Starsilver. While the Prototype is good for all claymore users, Snowtombed Starsilver is only good for a few characters.

However, if you need to choose the better claymore for Razor, Snowtombed Starsilver is still the priority. Therefore, you need to build a proper team and choose the best user to make Snowtombed Starsilver more effective and powerful.
