Genshin Impact: Eula’s best weapon – Song of Broken Pines vs. other options
Let’s talk about the best weapons for Eula in Genshin Impact.
Song of Broken Pines (Physical damage) – One of the clear-cut winners here is the Song of Broken Pines (seen in the image below). It has a perk called “Millennial Movement,” increasing ATK by 16% whenever you land normal or charged attacks. Once you’ve got four stacks of this buff, you’ll gain another buff called “Millennial Movement: Banner-Hymn” for 12 seconds. This increases ATK% and normal attack speed by 20% and 12% respectively. Eula happens to have extremely fast attack animations (for a claymore user), so she’ll make the most out of these effects. The major downside is that this weapon is only available via the “Epitome Invocation” weapon banner that’s available from today until June 8.
Wolf’s Gravestone (ATK%) – Wolf’s Gravestone is yet another viable option if you already have it. This 5-star claymore adds +20% ATK by default, and hitting an enemy with low health adds an extra temporary ATK boost of 40%. Ideally, this is a weapon used by Diluc or Razor, but Eula can also equip this if you want to try her out.
Snow-Tombed Starsilver (Physical damage) – If you don’t plan on wasting primogems or cash on the Song of Broken Pines, then the Snow-Tombed Starsilver (seen below) can be used as a free-to-play substitute. You can obtain it by finding the stone tablets in Dragonspine. The weapon has a chance of dropping icicles on enemies if you hit them with normal or charged attacks. The damage is greatly increased if enemies are affected by the Cryo element (which is a given if Eula is active).
Prototype Archaic (ATK%) – Another free-to-play option is the Prototype Archaic which is forged by the blacksmith. It provides a chance for normal and charged attacks to deal an additional 300% ATK damage to opponents. The effect can only occur once every 15 seconds, so you won’t proc it as often even with Eula’s fast stabs and slashes.
Serpent Spine (crit rate) – Finally, there’s the Serpent Spine which comes from the premium version of the Gnostic Hymn Battle Pass. Every four seconds that Eula is on the field, she’ll be able to deal 6% more damage while taking 3% more damage in return. It stacks up to five times and isn’t reset when Eula leaves the field, but the stacks will be decreased whenever she gets hit.
Anyway, let’s go to the next section of our guide so we can talk about Eula’s best artifact sets in Genshin Impact.
