[Top 5] Genshin Impact Best F2P Polearms That Are Powerful (And How To Get Them)

Xiao always witnesses the Lantern Festival from afar...

Polearm characters have the benefit of attacking from far away. Not as far as the catalyst users, of course. Look at Xiao or Raiden’s charged attacks. They can even impede enemies from entering their range. Well, let’s look at those polearms then. In this guide, we’ll see the best 5 polearms in the game that you can get for free so that you know which to aim for.

5. Crescent Pike

The first one is the easiest to get: the Crescent Pike. When I say easiest I refer to not having to depend on luck and just having to depend on the in-game forge. With the necessary materials, they can forge tens of weapons like this polearm. It’s really useful for physical DPS who have lots of energy recharge.

Why This Item Is Great:

  • After picking up an Elemental Orb/Particle, Normal and Charged Attacks deal an additional 20% ATK as DMG for 5s.

How To Get This Item: 

  • Forging

4. Blackcliff Pole

Like the other Blackcliff weapons, you can buy them in Paimon’s shop. This is a powerful weapon for pure DPS like Xiao, who need lots of ATK and Critical Damage to deal decent hits. Moreover, DPS are the ones that defeat the opponents, so the passive is also really good. You can even kill some minions to increase ATK before fighting the boss.

Why This Item Is Great:

  • After defeating an opponent, ATK is increased by 12% for 30 s. This effect has a maximum of 3 stacks, and the duration of each stack is independent of the others.

How To Get This Item: 

  • Paimon’s Bargains

3. Skyward Spine

This polearm is from the Skyward series and it shows in its glowing thingies all over. It also shows in the fact that, like the sword, it recharges tons of energy. This may seem helpful only for supports, but that’s until you see it's passive. Not only does it increase more stats, but can even create vacuums to group enemies together!

Why This Item Is Great:

  • Increases CRIT Rate by 8% and increases Normal ATK SPD by 12%. Additionally, Normal and Charged Attacks hits on opponents have a 50% chance to trigger a vacuum blade that deals 40% of ATK as DMG in a small AoE. This effect can occur no more than once every 2s.

How To Get This Item: 

  • Standard Wish Wanderlust Invocation
  • All Weapon Event Wishes

2. “The Catch”

“The catch” was included at the same time as the Luxurious Sea Lord. You can change your fish for this polearm in Inazuma’s Fishing Association. Although similar to this Lord, this polearm is better because it not only increases bursts’ damage and Crit. rate, but it also helps recharge their energy as well.

Why This Item Is Great:

  • Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 16% and Elemental Burst CRIT Rate by 6%.

How To Get This Item: 

  • Purchased from Inazuma Fishing Association

1. Primordial Jade Winged-Spear

Finally, the best weapon in the standard wish banner: the Primordial jade Winged-Spear. This polearm is said to be created for Morax to Xiao the Jaksha. With every time you hit your enemies your ATK increases, up to 7 times. That means this weapon gives you a boost of both Crit. rate and 22% of ATK. Moreover, you have to agree with me that this is the prettiest weapon yet.

Why This Item Is Great:

  • On hit, increases ATK by 3.2% for 6s. Max 7 stacks. This effect can only occur once every 0.3s. While in possession of the maximum possible stacks, DMG dealt is increased by 12%.

How To Get This Item: 

  • Standard Wish Wanderlust Invocation
  • All Weapon Event Wishes

Item details: https://genshin-impact.fandom.com/wiki/Primordial_Jade_Winged-Spear


You can now see the wide range of options your Zhongli or your Shenhe have. You may want to choose the prettiest or the one with a similar palette. However, if you want to choose the strongest you should choose between these five.
