Genshin Impact has officially announced the Polar Star Bow and the Akuoumaru Claymore. While the former is supposed to be the signature weapon for Childe, the latter is a decent weapon for Genshin characters such as Beidou, Diluc, and Eula.
The stats and ascension materials for the Polar Star and Akuoumaru have also been revealed. Players can wish and farm materials for the weapons accordingly.
Polar Star in Genshin Impact: Stats and ascension materials
The Polar Star in Genshin Impact has a massive base ATK of 46 and a Crit Rate sub-stat. The weapon's passive ability, known as Daylight's Augury, primarily increases skill and burst DMG and also buffs ATK.
Both Thundering Pulse and Skyward Harp are currently considered the best bows in Genshin Impact. However, with the 2.2 update, it is safe to assume that the Polar Star will take this title.
At level 90 and Refinement Rank 1, the Polar Star's Base ATK significantly increases to 608. Its Crit Rate also increases from 7.2% at Lv 1. to 33.1% at Lv. 90.

It is worth noting that some of the aforementioned items such as Concealed Talon, Concealed Unguis, and Concealed Claw cannot be farmed at the moment. These items will be dropped by a new enemy called Rifthounds that will be available in the upcoming 2.2 patch.
All in all, Childe has finally received a signature weapon with his second re-run banner in Genshin Impact. His banner will be followed by Hu Tao, who is the second featured five-star character in the next update.
It is worth noting that a new Pyro Polearm user, Thoma, is also arriving in the second phase of the 2.2 update. Players might remember the character from Archon Quest, during which he helped Traveler and Paimon stop the Vision Hunt Decree.
