Is the Genshin Impact Battle Pass worth it? Best Battle Pass Weapon? How long does it take to complete the Battle Pass? Let’s take a look.

The Battle Pass Rewards

If you’re familiar with gacha games you may have come across this monthly two tier reward system.

The Battle Pass is available to all players. However there are basic rewards (which everyone can earn) and premium paid rewards (Gnostic Hymn).

There’s even a third option (Gnostic Chorus) which provides 10 BP levels and a few additional rewards.

Leveling the Battle Pass unlocks rewards. Here’s what you get:

*Gnostic Chorus provides 10BP levels, Namecard and 5x Fragile Resin

Worth It?

Compared to the free Battle Pass the Gnostic Hymn paid option provides:

  • A significant amount of additional Hero Exp Material
  • 3x more Mystic Enhancement Ore
  • 3x more Mora
  • Talent Books of your choice
  • 680 Primogems
  • 4-Star Weapon of your choice.

All together that’s quite significant.

As for the Gnostic Chorus unless the rewards significantly improve in the future this one is likely a hard pass for most players.

Rewards are based on 15/10/20 – 11/11/20 Battle Pass.

Best Battle Pass Weapon

WeaponStatsNotes
The Black Sword
(Sword)
Base Atk: 42
Secondary Stat: 6% Crit Rate

Effect:
Increases DMG dealt by Normal and Charged Attacks by 20%.
Additionally, regenerates 60% of ATK as HP when Normal and Charged Attacks score a CRIT Hit. This effect can occur once every 5s.
Crit Rate is a fantastic stat for weapons used for DSP characters.

Constant Dmg Increase is very good.

HP Regen is a hard stat to come by. Great for adding sustain to your DPS.
Serpent Spine
(Claymore)
Base Atk: 42
Secondary Stat: 6% Crit Rate

Effect:
Every 4s a character is on the field, they will deal 6% more DMG and take 3% more DMG. This effect has a maximum of 5 stacks and will not be reset if the character leaves the field, but will be reduced by 1 stack when the character takes DMG.
Crit Rate Stat is great.

Effect however isn't ideal as it relies on not taking Dmg.

The craftable Prototype Aminus is a great if not superior alternative.
Solar Pearl
(Catalyst)
Base Atk: 42
Secondary Stat: 6% Crit Rate

Effect:
Normal Attack hits increase Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG by 20% for 6s. Likewise, Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst hits increase Normal Attack DMG by 20% for 6s.
Great for DPS casters (better alternatives for supports).
The Viridescent Hunt
(Bow)
Base Atk: 42
Secondary Stat: 6% Crit Rate

Effect:
Upon hit, Normal and Aimed Shot Attacks have a 50% chance to generate a Cyclone, which will continuously attract surrounding enemies, dealing 40% of ATK as DMG to these enemies every 0.5s for 4s. This effect can only occur once every 14s.
Crit Rate Stat is great.

Whilst crowd control is nice to have, more damage from a weapon like Rust is preferable on a DPS bow user.

As for support bow users, the crit rate would be a bit of a waste. Stringless is often a better alternative for its EM and skill dmg effect.
Deathmatch
(Polearm)
Base Atk: 42
Secondary Stat: 8% Crit Rate

Effect:
If there are at least 2 enemies nearby, ATK is increased by 16% and DEF is increased by 16%. If there are less than 2 enemies nearby, ATK is increased by 24%.
Crit Rate Stat is great.

The craftable Crescent Pike is a great alternative (don't have to worry about enemy numbers).

The 4-Star weapon chest is available at Battle Pass Lv. 30.

  1. Out of all the weapons The Black Sword stands out as the best option. If you are making use of a sword user your choice is made easy.
  2. If you are using a DPS catalyst user then the Solar Pearl is also a solid option.
  3. As for the other Battle Pass weapons there are craftable alternatives many of which are superior.

  1. For every 1,000BEP you will gain 1 Battle Pass level.
  2. There are a total of 50 Battle Pass levels.
  3. You will therefore need 50,000BEP to complete the Battle Pass.
  4. Therefore it’s possible to complete the Battle Pass in roughly 5.25 weeks.

Additionally there are also one time BEP rewards for completing the following:

  • Make a total of 50 Wishes (1,500BEP)
  • Use a total of 5,500 Original Resin (2,250BEP)
  • Clear Spiral Abyss challenge 8-3 (2,250BEP)

There are also events throughout the month that have provided additional BEP making it possible to complete the Battle Pass even earlier.

BP levels can be purchased at 150 Primogems per level. Its better to just earn your levels.

But if you are desperate for those last few levels and have purchased the Gnostic Chorus it may be worth making the purchase as you will receive 680 Primogems for the final Lv. 50 reward (roughly 4.5 levels worth).
