Recommended Characters

While Redhorn Stonethresher currently has the lowest ATK stat among 5-star claymores, it can still be considered the best weapon for some characters. This claymore has a whopping CRIT DMG bonus stat of 88.2% at max level and can increase the equipping character’s DEF and attacks based on the DEF stat. Remember that not all characters scale only with the ATK stat!

That being said, this is the signature weapon and the BiS (best-in-slot) for the DEF-scaling 5-star Geo character Arataki Itto. Another DEF-scaling character who can take advantage of everything about this weapon is the 4-star Geo character Noelle. The 4-star Pyro character Xinyan can also increase her shield’s effectiveness using this claymore as it scales on her DEF.

However, DEF-scaling characters are not the only ones who can benefit from Redhorn Stonethresher. As mentioned earlier, it has a considerable CRIT DMG stat, making this weapon a stat stick for some DPS characters. While not their BiS weapon, Redhorn Stonethresher can work as a substitute weapon for the likes of Razor, Diluc, Beidou, and Eula.

Check out the table below for our Redhorn Stonethresher character recommendation summary:

BiS (best-in-slot) weapon for:– Arataki Itto
– Noelle
– Xinyan
Good weapon for:– DPS Razor
– DPS Diluc
– DPS Beidou
– DPS Eula
